Grudem’s Systematic Theology Class

Dr. Wayne Grudem has taught through his  Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine in Scottsdale Bible Church’s Christian Essentials Class.   They have been kind enough to place them online for our edification.  Dr. Grudem’s Systematic Theology is excellent and provides wonderful application for your walk with the Lord.  Is it enough to have all of our theological ducks-in-a-row, a head full of knowledge without pressing our hearts toward Christ himself?  It shouldn’t be all academia but the truths that are developed and understood from His word should translate into growth in obedience and love for Him.   

Monergism has neatly organized them here but you can only listen to them online.

Scripture Passage of the Week

Gal 5:16-25

Walk by the Spirit

16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy, [1] drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.  (ESV)

May the Lord bless you this week in His word.

Well, here it goes…

I think my first choice for this blogs name was ‘In Over My Head’, but it was taken.  And that’s how I feel about producing my own blog.  I’ve lurked and read a number of them for years and the thought crossed my mind a few times, but in the end I would simply chicken out.  Not only did I have no real experience with a blog but I have no idea if I can say or bring anything to the table that is interesting to anyone.  This week I was thinking about the prospect of doing this blog thing and thought, ‘I have lots of things that are interesting to me so I guess I should just share them and not worry if anyone pays attention or not.’  So here it goes…


The ultimate goal of this blog is to glorify my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and share the truth of His gospel to anyone who has ears to hear.

Secondarily, we all know about some excellent resources that are out there on the web.  We can point each other to them to mutually edify as brother and sisters in Christ.  This can be anything that is uplifting in spirit, educational, relevant to our spiritual growth, or just good ol’ clean fun, etc.  So I foresee this blog growing in contributors to accomplish the intent of the blog.  Now, I’m almost positive that this blog will morph overtime to accommidate my ever changing interests since I seem to have a focus problem.  Anyway, welcome and hope that you can overlook my often times inability to communicate clearly and affectively.  Please, if you come to the opinion that I have a blind spot, not recognizing that I shouldn’t be in anyway involved with the creation of a blog, once again, please let me know so I can healed of my blindness.
