Every pastor has encountered them. Every member of the congregation has wondered after reading the title of the sermon and the accompanying text, "I wonder what he is going to say about this text?" Let's face it some texts are difficult and when a preacher preaches through a book, well, he has no choice but to face them head on - and members of the congregation have to hear them! So, today Jonathan and James will visit with Liam Goligher on the topic of braving hard passages.

What is Eternal Generation? Dr. Fred Sanders, professor of theology in the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University, CA, has written much about the topic. He recently co-edited Retrieving Eternal Generation, a set of essays focused on the Father-Son relationship and on the Son’s begottenness or "fromness", as Dr. Sanders puts it. Today, he meets with Jonathan and James to talk about the importance of Christ's eternal generation from the Father, in order to have a biblical doctrine of the Trinity.

One of my favorite passages to preach for an ordination or installation service is 2 Timothy 4:5. The context is significant, since in it Paul acknowledges the challenges of pastoral ministry and the apparent success that many false teachers will achieve. In essence, the verse is set against the backdrop of discouragements in ministry. This dose of realism is especially important, I think, when new ministers are ordained or new ministries begun; it reminds us of what the Bible teaches us to expect.

My wife and I are planning a fairly substantial gardening project in our front yard (she more enthusiastically than I). We’re going to uproot some bushes that no longer seem to fit, and are planning to plant other flowers in their place. It’s all fairly conventional, I suppose, and right now it seems to depend primarily on our having the time and energy to carry it to completion. But my wife recently asked me an important question – one that everyone in our neighborhood asks before digging apart the yard: she asked me if I knew where the natural gas line was buried. You see, in our neighborhood, if you dig in the yard and hit the gas line, all sorts of destructive and dangerous things can happen. In fact, in the community across the street from us, some digging was done recently that punctured the line. So far, it’s taken weeks for the utility company to assess and even begin to fix the damage. It’s no easy task to clean up after careless acts that damage old lines. Of course, in rare circumstances, it is possible to move the line entirely, but it’s not something that one man can attempt on his own. Many experts need to be involved, and the reasons for the change would have to be overwhelming and persuasive, which brings me to the creeds and theology.
