THE JESUS PARADIGM

Restoring the New Testament church in the 21st century

Completely at the Disposal of the King

| June 29, 2012

8:40 AM The Abnormal Anabaptist posts his thoughts about the SCOTUS decision in an essay titled What, did something just happen to change the world?  You simply must read it. It’s important to note that the acceptance he’s talking about is not passivity, fatalism, or resignation. It’s not about putting our head in the sand. […]

The book is entitled Except for Fornication: The Teaching of the Lord Jesus on Divorce and Remarriage. From […]

| May 8, 2010

I attribute today’s neo-sacralism directly to the Reformers and their faulty theology of the church, against which the Anabaptists inveighed. Under the tutelage of such sacralism church leaders today continue to accommodate biblical […]

Would Jesus Have Written a Book?

| July 14, 2009

Dave Black discusses this in a new article on Dave Black Online.  He starts: This was a question I pondered recently. Of course, the query is utterly pretentious. I just as well might have asked, “Would Jesus have used Twitter?” The question is an anachronism because it removes Jesus from His historical context. Still, I […]
