Here are a few more blog & articles I’ve found useful…

Conformed to the Image of Christ — This lab from John Piper is a fruitful engagement with Romans 8:29. These labs from Desiring God Ministries has many uses for times of study and prayer, times of digging deeper into a particular passage, along with modeling how one should approach the Scriptures.

Yes Men — Carl Truman posts a good article on the Mortification of Spin blog engaging with the necessity for accountability in our lives. This isn’t only necessary for elders, but also for any who call Christ their Savior.

Is The Church Full of Hypocrites? — an article by RC Sproul — “About thirty years ago, my close friend and colleague, Archie Parrish, who at that time led the Evangelism Explosion (EE) program in Fort Lauderdale, came to me with a request. He indicated that on the thousands of evangelistic visits the EE teams made, they kept a record of responses people made to discussions of the gospel. They collated the most frequent questions and objections people raised about the Christian faith and grouped these inquiries or objections into the ten most frequently encountered. Dr. Parrish asked if I would write a book answering those objections for evangelists to use in their outreach. That effort resulted in my book Objections Answered, now called Reason to Believe. Among the top ten objections raised was the objection that the church is filled with hypocrites. At that point in time, Dr. D. James Kennedy responded to this objection by replying, “Well, there’s always room for one more.” He cautioned people that if they found a perfect church, they ought not to join it, since that would ruin it.”
