Don’t Miss List: Terrible Movies, Preaching the Gospel and The Marks of False Teachers

There is plenty to read and listen to online, but here are some of things I think you really shouldn’t miss this week:

Time is Running Out – Challies.com

Tim Challies shares his thoughts on preaching this Sunday and a reminder from Philip Ryken’s commentary on Luke that reminded him of the urgency of preaching the gospel, because “There is a time limit on the free offer of salvation.” Read here.

50 Shades of Strange – Housewife Theologian (Aimee Byrd)

Aimee Byrd takes on the popularity of 50 Shades of Grey, a novel and soon-to-be movie. Byrd writes, “I assume that the movie is going to follow the same BDSM so-called plotline as the book. In which case, Christians and non-Christians alike should be joining forces in outrage over the thought that women are portrayed as getting off on abuse.” H/T to Challies for including this in his July 27 ala carte.

The Marks of a False Prophet – Fighting for the Faith

The Fighting for the Faith July 19 episode includes a very helpful examination of the marks of a false prophet. Listen here.

“The Bible is one long story of God meeting our rebellion with His rescue, our sin with His salvation, our guilt with His grace, our badness with His goodness. The overwhelming focus of the Bible is not the work of the redeemed but the work of the Redeemer.” Tullian Tchividjian – One Way Love

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
