This past week during my studies I found an interesting quote that I would like to share with you, the MTZ readers. The quote is from Louis Berkhof. Berkhof was an American Dutch Reformed theologian during the late 19th and early 20th century. From my observation and reading, his views seem to be some mix of classical Calvinism and Fullerism. In his book, Systematic Theology, Berkhof gives just about every type of Christian theological persuasion on various Christian doctrines for the reader. He also gives reasons why he believes they are wrong, but represents them nonetheless. The below quote addresses the old Anabaptist belief concerning regeneration.

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Proverbs 29:18


This verse is often quoted to show the importance of long term goals in the church, particularly in the mind of the pastor. A person would define "vision" as the goals or ambitions of the pastor. For example, it might be said that it was the pastor's "vision" for this congregation that they double in size over the next decade.


While it's admirable to hope and pray for success in spreading the gospel and church growth, that's not actually the sense of this text. Keep reading...

The following are some thoughts that came to mind after seeing a Politico article on political endorsements coming from the pulpit. (Read the article here)

While we have a charge to preach Biblical morality on some issues that have waxed political (abortion, marriage, sexual morality, etc.), we have no authority to waste time preaching politics. I have as many or more political and economic opinions as anybody, trust me. I also express them in appropriate settings. But the pulpit is a place for the gospel.

Some things to consider:
