Time and the Danger of Spiritual Attrition

One of my favorite fictional works from the pen of C.S. Lewis is "The Screwtape Letters". In it he gives us a collection of letters written by a demon named Screwtape advising an underling tempter, his nephew Wormwood, on how to keep his 'patient' away from Jesus and the good news of the gospel. In this short excerpt, Screwtape advises Wormwood on using time to wear down a...

Maurice Robert's book, "The Thought Of God" is one of...

We recently spent time in the Gospel of Mark looking at Jesus' repsonse to the criticism of the Pharisees. They accused His disciples of doing what was not 'lawful' on the Sabbath (Mark 2:24). He responded to them by saying that the Sabbath was intended to be a gift to mankind for restoration, not a draining burden of man-made rules (Mark 2:27). He concluded His rebuttle o...
