Free Friday! Extreme Exploits

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

There are two kinds of Christians today: transformers and conformers. Paul makes it very clear what kind of people God has called us to be: “Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:2). This is a message we must each seriously consider. Every one of us is either a transformer or conformer. Either we will transform our school, our church, our workplace, our city, or our home through a life devoted to Christ, or we will conform to the world around us.

Free Friday! The Advancement

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

The new features of the modern worldview (natural historical development and inevitable progress) are not necessarily two absolutely distinct ideas. They are usually seen more as a blend, and it is precisely this blend that lies behind modern secular thought. In order to see the impact this blend of ideas has made, it will be helpful to contrast the modern secular and naturalistic worldview that had arisen by the late twentieth century with the idea blend (the worldview) which (in the West, at least) has been secularism’s primary rival. This long-standing alternative includes the following ideas: (1) stability in nature, (2) spiritual warfare, and (3) historical change initiated by divine intervention.

Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book, usually $19.95, is The Advancement: Keeping the Faith in an Evolutionary Age by L. Russ Bush.

The Advancement unapologetically presents the biblical solution as the only satisfactory worldview for modern life in contrast to the naturalistic worldview that dominates thought today.

A unique Christian Apologetic approaching Darwinian naturalism from a history-of-ideas perspective. The author argues that progress and advancement are better metaphors to characterize the late twentieth century and early twenty-first century than the term post-modern. The illusion of spiritual progress is now no more true than it was during the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century.

Free Friday! The Great Commission to Worship

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

Based on the rapid decline in evangelism statistics, the sad part is that so-called believers appear to be content with this disconnect in reference to their faith, thus allowing for outward expressions of worship with little regard to what it means to be a multiplying disciple of Christ. After generations of allowing this anemic expression of worship to exist with little or no challenge from Christian leaders, the result has been the normalizing of an impotent faith that ignores the Great Commission in favor of reducing worship to an emotional act of personal expression.

Free Friday! Aging Gracefully

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

Most of us give scant recognition to the aging process until we begin to notice physical changes: a wrinkle in the corner of the eye or mouth, a gray hair in the head or eyebrow, an “age” spot on the back of the hand, or some other common indicator. When one or more of these “symptoms” appear, our responses range from quiet resignation to full-blown panic. So, how are you dealing with the fact of your aging? Aging is a process of change; it is both inevitable and irresistible. If we wish to enjoy the later part of life (or any other part for that matter), we must learn to adapt to the changes that come our way.

Free Friday! Principle Preaching

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

The power of principle preaching is simple. Principles are universally applicable. Thus, receptivity is accordingly universal. If it is true in physics that everything that goes up must come down, it is also true in principle preaching, where virtually every principle will be heard, received, remembered, practiced, and even perpetuated by those who hear the Word. Whether one is saved or lost, a communist or Catholic, a Buddhist or Baptist, an astronaut, truck driver, banker, or custodian, the principles will stick.

Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book, usually $14.50, is Principle Preaching: How to Create and Deliver Sermons For Life Applications by John Bisagno.
