When Did Satan Fall like Lightning?


In one of the more enigmatic verses in the Gospel of Luke, Jesus tells his disciples, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven” (Luke 10:18). The question isn’t about the “what” of Jesus’ statement. It’s clear that Satan is under judgment. Rather, the confusion is over the “when” of the statement. It might sound like a reference to when Satan became Satan, before the garden of Eden—abandoning his status among God’s heavenly host—but that conclusion would be too hasty. [Read more…]

Embrace Wisdom from the Past in The Apostles’ Creed

The Apostles’ Creed has united Christians from different times, places, and traditions. It proclaims eternal truths for life today. Christians believe them, recite them, and build their life on them.

Missed Paul Tripp with the Eagles? Watch it On Demand through September 30

They became world champions, winning the big game on one of the biggest stages in pro sports. And to millions of fans, they instantly became heroes and athletes to admire and emulate.

They’re also men who face unimaginable pressures from fame, money, and a lifestyle few will ever know. But some live their lives for a greater purpose than football, and with a deeper motivation than winning. They live by faith in God. [Read more…]

Speaking the Language of the Inquirer


Christian apologetics is often a difficult subject to tackle. Most books are directed toward Christians, helping them develop an apologetic method. But this approach ignores one of the most important aspects of apologetics: the audience. In his new book, Christianity Considered: A Guide for Skeptics and Seekers, John Frame directly addresses this shortcoming. As he puts it: “My goal is to speak the language of the inquirer, not that of theologians.” For the Christian reader, his work provides a deeper understanding of the intellectual milieu Christian apologetics faces in the modern era. In this excerpt, Frame introduces the structure for his inquiry into the Christian intellectual tradition: [Read more…]

What’s the First Thing You Need to Know About NT Greek?

I’m in the middle of a series of posts on learning Greek, and each time I write I find myself wanting to start by holding up a warning sign. Here’s the last one, I promise (sort of): “Greek is not math.”

But we all experience days when we find it difficult to enjoy reading our Bibles. We read a passage but the words seem to fall flat. Or we struggle to discover how seemingly obscure passages apply to our lives. On days we do have the desire to read, there’s often an endless list of things to be done, children to care for, or other distractions—or we’re simply to zapped of energy to read anything at all.
