Born Again . . . and Again . . . and Again

As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but in order that the works of God might be made manifest in him (he was born blind). We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming when no one can work.” (John 9:1–4) [Read more…]

A Logos user presented the following scenario to me:

I’m a traveling itinerate preacher speaking in various churches, but do revisit the same churches periodically. If I start using the Sermon Editor to archive my messages, is there a way to search the files by location so I don’t preach the same sermon in the same church? [Read more…]

The Intersection of Revelation and Reason

The relationship between human reason and divine revelation has been a perennial topic of discussion among philosophers and systematic theologians. Throughout Church history, Christians have been tempted to make revelation and reason mutually exclusive. But both are essential to a true understanding of the faith.
