Worshipping God as Women in His Image

By on October 4, 2016 in Biblical Womanhood, Theology with 3 Comments

We live on a conservation where the canopy of trees stretches back as far as I can see. Sitting on my back porch, I’m immersed in nature. I can hear grasshoppers chirping in unison while the breeze rustles through the leaves. Occasional birds chirp like melodic, timed bells. Wispy white clouds are painted across the […]

Theology Thursday: Is It Greek to You? Interpreting Romans 16:7

By on September 29, 2016 in Theology with 0 Comments

Greet Andronicus and Junia, my countrymen and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me (Rom. 16:7, NKJV). I am willing to guess that you probably have not spent a lot of time pouring over Romans 16:7. In fact, much like the genealogies with lists of […]

Misconceptions of Grace

By on September 20, 2016 in Christian Life, Theology with 0 Comments

Never before have I heard the phrase, “Can I have grace?” so often since becoming a dean at a Bible school.  And why shouldn’t I?  We all want grace. We get pulled over for speeding, and we do everything in our power to convince the pleasant police officer to give us grace, to get us out of […]

Theology Thursday: Understanding the Mosaic of the Atonement

By on August 25, 2016 in Theology with 0 Comments

I grew up in St. Louis, MO, and one of my favorite places in the city is the Cathedral Basilica. This massive cathedral holds the largest collection of mosaic art in the entire world. It’s breathtaking! Wall-to-wall, intricate glass pieces line vaulted ceilings and vast archways, creating portraits that depict entire stories. Up close, you […]

Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us, we have to see it as something done by us.

By on August 23, 2016 in Jesus, Theology with 0 Comments

Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us (leading us to faith and worship), we have to see it as something done by us (leading us to repentance). Indeed, “only the man who is prepared to own his share in the guilt of the cross,” wrote Canon Peter Green, “may claim […]

The Recent Debate of the Trinity and Gender: A Development Not a Departure

By on August 16, 2016 in Theology with 0 Comments

In the previous blogs, I have presented an overview of the recent debate of the Trinity and gender roles (here and here). I also discussed and answered two major charges against the position called “EFS” for its emphasis on the eternal functional subordination of the Son to the Father. In this blog, I would like […]

The Trinity and Gender? Talking about the Recent Debate (Part 2)

By on July 28, 2016 in Theology with 1 Comment

In Part 1 of this series, I summarized this debate and the criticisms against EFS (the eternal functional subordination of the Son to the Father) theologians, mainly Wayne Grudem and Bruce Ware. I also discussed one of the charges against EFS theologians, namely that EFS theologians should not relate the Trinity to gender roles. I […]

The Trinity and Gender? Talking about the Recent Debate (Part 1)

By on July 21, 2016 in Theology with 5 Comments

I was enjoying my post-graduation trip in South Texas when several friends informed me of the recent online debate about the Trinity and gender roles. Again—yes, again—this issue is hotly debated. However, this time the debate is not between egalitarians and complementarians but among Reformed complementarians. The debate seems to have turned into a “civil […]

Theology Thursday: Did Jesus Actually Claim to Be God?

By on June 30, 2016 in Theology with 1 Comment

It was probably the most frustrating conversation I’d had since the time I tried to explain how I forgot to snip the security tag out of my clothes and that’s what was making the alarm go off! (Another story for another day…) She was intelligent, well spoken, and passionate. She knew her stuff. She even knew a […]

The Gospel, God’s Presence, and Your Kitchen Table

By on April 19, 2016 in Theology with 1 Comment

Have you ever conducted a biblical search on the word table? The first time the word table is used in the Bible is in Exodus 25. In this chapter, God gave Moses very detailed instructions about how the tabernacle was to be designed and furnished. After providing Moses with the blueprint for the ark of […]
