Why We Must Confront to Connect

My admiration of this woman absolutely knows no end, and Lisa Bevere’s bold, authentic approach to embodying the words of Christ are a blazing torch for this generation. She beautifully weaves personal experience with profound biblical truth, giving us something relatable and practical all at once. It’s a grace to welcome Lisa to the farm’s front porch today… guest post by Lisa Bevere T here was unresolved conflict in the air, and I had no idea why. Over the years, I’d reached out only to rec...

How to See Changes in the ESV (Though They Don’t Matter Much)

The ESV came out in 2001, just as I was starting seminary. I bought one that was made of paper—the iconic black hardcover with a big white pane on the front. My roommate grabbed it and promptly spilled tea on it. No problem: I now have probably 10 or 15 different copies of the ESV in various editions around my home and office. I’ve always loved the fact that it comes in so many creative, beautiful, and useful editions. Other things being equal (and they kind of are), I personally—not speaki...

Random Excellence: Giants?

Might call this "random interest" rather than excellence, but it's curious. You might want to look at the picture carefully before reading on. We were talking about the novel Giants in the Earth the other day, and I ran across the old snapshot above on a site called Ipernity. The original poster, Alan Mays, was given it as a Christmas present. A few different elements conspire to create a visual illusion. The small size of the tractor and the boy driving it, the looming hill in the background, ...

5 Words You’re Probably Not Getting in the Christmas Story

Every Christmas Eve growing up, my father read the Christmas story from Luke 2 in the King James Version. And every Christmas Eve, I thought I understood it. I largely did. But I now see little things I was missing—through no fault of my own, nor of the KJV translators, but simply because of the inevitable process of language change. The KJV is 400 years old, after all. I now see these little things because I focused hard on them while writing my book, Authorized: The Use and Misuse of the King ...

Thanksgiving is More Than a Holiday: It’s Meant to Change Your Life

S ome days I pick up a camera and the lens is my ink, for cameras have sensor eyes, and pixels record. I slide it into a pocket, the camera in phone, and find another way to chronicle, to force the lids open; another way to receive the moment with reverential thanks. When he comes in from the barn, The Farmer Husband finds me leaning over a plate of cheese grated and sitting in sunlight. It is true. And yeah — I do feel foolish. I mean, it’s curls of mozzarella and cheddar piled high in a pond ...

‘Belief in Genesis 1:27’ is ‘incompatible with human dignity’: Court

‘Belief in Genesis 1:27’ is ‘incompatible with human dignity’: Court Human dignity, the defining value of the West, grows out of the Judeo-Christian belief that the human race was created in the image of God. However, a British court has officially pronounced this truth, revealed in the opening chapter of the Bible, “incompatible with human dignity.” The case involved Dr. David Mackereth, who worked as a disability assessor for the Department for Work and ...

Do the warning passages of Hebrews 6:7-8 and Hebrews 10:27 refer to Christians going to hell?

My book, What is Hell? is now available on Amazon. I am doing a series of podcast studies that focus on some of the content from the book. The studies look at the eight key terms that are often equated with hell, and about a dozen key passages that are thought to teach about hell. If you want to learn the truth about hell and what the Bible actually teaches about hell, make sure you get a copy of my book, What is Hell? Also, if you are part of my discipleship group, there will be an online cours...

Proverbs 8:13

Proverbs 8:13   (13) The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate. Proverbs 8:13 is one of the definition verses of the Bible, along with "sin is the transgression of the law" (I John 3:4, KJV) and "the love of God [is] that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome" (I John 5:3), among others. Here, the fear of the Lord is defined as "hating evil." In the Bible, "evil" i...

Content Get full (or shorter) OED on Kindle?

The included Oxford Dictionary of English on the Kindle is fine. But I would love to get the full Oxford English Dictionary (you know, that 20+ volume monstrosity with the whole history of the English language) in epub/kindle format. Or failing that due to the obvious file size issues, at least the 2 volume Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, 6th ed., which I have in paper and supposedly has 1/3 of the entries in the full OED, as well as all words after 1700, and all words from Shakespeare or t...

Play the Man You Are: Will Effeminacy Keep Anyone from Heaven?

Much of our modern sexuality pontificates with Pharaoh, “Who is the Lord, that I should obey his voice?” (Exodus 5:2). Some teachers can no longer say “boys and girls” in classrooms. In some school districts, young men can go into girls’ locker rooms simply with a note from a parent. Recently, actress Kate Hudson shared her plans to raise her daughter, Rani Rose, with a “genderless approach.” What a sad time to be alive. But not only sad: also dangerous and rebellious. Into the gender ...

How the KJV Is Partially Responsible for the NIV (Video)

When a Christian businessman tried to share Scripture with a non-Christian, he was met with laughter. Not because of the Word, but because of the words—the “strange” English of the KJV.

Grieving the American Bible Society

Ever since my freshman year of college, I have read and toted around the same dog-eared, taped up, and much underlined and scribbled-in Revised Standard Version study Bible that I bought in a college book store for both an Old Testament class and an English lit class my first semester. It is an old friend, and I am deeply grateful to the American Bible Society for introducing us. With that old Bible, I have learned about my faith, pondered deep ethical questions, looked for literary themes,...

The Difference Between Textual Criticism and Translation

Textual criticism can explain some of the differences people notice between their English translations, such as the omission of “who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” in the NIV of Romans 8:1 (compare Romans 8:1 in the KJV). However, many variations in translations are not text critical in nature; instead, they reflect the translation techniques and the decisions of translation committees. Understanding the differences between text-critical issues and translation issues is an i...

Isaiah 5:20*(KJV) 20*Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Surviving the Intimidating Behaviors of Some of Satan's Servants

Realizing there are those out there serving Satan AND that they can pick me out of a crowd was quite a shock to me at first. A few examples of this intimidating behavior: I use a restroom at a business where I am a paying customer, and an employee pounds on the door soon after I entered and threatens to call the police because I've been in there too long. Another example, I'm in a stall at a bus station, and someone bangs their fist three times loud on a panel of the stall. A person intentionall...

How Do Pastors Pick Their Fights?

We need men who know how to disagree without creating division. We need pastors and elders who have enough self-control to avoid needless controversy, and enough courage to move gently and steadily toward conflict. Not a brawler. The 400-year-old King James Version (KJV) translates 1 Timothy 3:2–3 with surprising timelessness. Of the full list of fifteen, this qualification for pastor-elder in the church is one of just five negative traits. Modern translations say “not quarrelsome” (ESV and...

Suffering Taught Him to Look to Christ: Charles Spurgeon (1834–1892)

Crowds lined the streets, hoping to catch a glimpse of the olivewood casket as it made its way through the streets of south London. On top was a large pulpit Bible opened at Isaiah 45:22: “Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth.” It was Thursday, February 11, 1892, and the body of Charles Haddon Spurgeon was being taken for burial. Eighteen years before, Spurgeon had imagined the scene from his pulpit: When you see my coffin carried to the silent grave, I should like ...

Language Cannot Sit Still, Even in Church

An editor once told me I could not say that a certain contemporary theologian “channeled” Jonathan Edwards. It felt too New-Agey to him. Usually I accept 100% of an editor’s suggested changes. I feel safer that way. But this time I protested. I felt that the editor was channeling persnicketiness. A brief tug-of-war ensued. He won; he happened to be my teacher. Our friendly dispute offers yet another lesson about language that will be helpful for your Bible study. Channel is, yes, a wor...

Does Your Pastor Love God or Money?

How Christians handle money speaks volumes about our Christ. It’s one of our greatest opportunities today to show ourselves distinct from the world, or just like it. Jesus talked about money more than anything else. More than sex. More than power. More than heaven and hell. Some of his best-known words, in his most-remembered sermon, strike right at the heart of the polar reality deep beneath all the practical shades of gray: “You cannot serve God and money” (Matthew 6:24). C’mon, Jesu...

Time No Longer.

I’m about a third of the way through Dostoevsky’s Идиот [The Idiot], and I’ve gotten to the bit in II:5 where Prince Myshkin is wandering around Petersburg and — shortly after the striking sentence “Что же в самом деле делать с действительностью?” [Really, what can you do with reality?] — he remembers what he had once said to Rogozhin about the moment just preceding his epileptic fits (which he hasn’t had since he left Switzerland): “в этот момент мне как-то становится понятно необычайное слово ...
