Riffs: 06:15:09: Dr. Peter Masters Rips The New Calvinism

Read: The Merger of Calvinism With Worldliness by Peter Masters. The current reformed and Calvinist revival loves Spurgeon, as well they should.

Stupid Ministry Tricks: The Best of My Bone-Headed Ministry Mistakes

It came to me today that many of you have probably felt that this web site was remiss in offering practical encouragement to those who are laboring in the work of ministry. Here I am, 33+ years into this business, and I haven’t really shared much of the wisdom of my own experiences. I intend […]
