Who

We are an evangelistic ministry dedicated to reaching lost and unchurched college students through the preaching of the Gospel and apologetics. This is one part of fulfilling the “Great Commission” – “Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation. (Mark 16:15)” In many ways, we look like Paul in Athens: “Now while Paul was waiting in Athens, his spirit was provoked within him as he saw that the city was full of idols. So he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and the devout person, and in the marketplace every day with those who happened to be there. Some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers also conversed with him…”


Why

Charles Spurgeon says, “It would be very easy to prove that revivals of religion have usually been accompanied, if not caused, by a considerable amount of preaching out-of-doors.” There are a myriad of reasons of why we do it, but primarily we love God and desire his fame and glory to be known by all (revival). A few centuries ago, a couple young Moravian missionaries sold themselves into slavery to reach slaves in the British West Indies. As their ship set sail, they waved good-bye, and exclaimed, “May the lamb that was slain receive the reward of his suffering.” The Lamb of God is worthy of all praise, glory and honor and that is our primary motivation in preaching.


How

Monday through Friday, we go to a college campus, find the “Free Speech” area, and speak publicly. By God’s grace, students gather, begin to ask questions, and raise objections to the Gospel. In Athens, Luke says that some who heard Paul wondered, “What does this babbler wish to say?” Many students come wondering the same and begin to inquire – who is this God? How did Jesus rise from the dead? How do you know the Bible is True?

“To develop verbal skill, Tozer offered these masters for study: John Bunyan for simplicity; Joseph Addison for clarity and elegance; John Milton for nobility and consistent elevation of thought; Charles Dickens for sprightliness (“start with A Christmas Carol”); Francis Bacon for conciseness and dignity.…

In some circles, there is a debate about being “radical” for Jesus and living in the mundane world for Jesus. In many ways, I think they are talking past each other, as both have their place, but in my reading of John Owen tonight, I thought, “he nails it!” I don’t care which camp you are in, what is your disposition?…

The other day, I picked up Joseph Alleine’s “An Alarm to Unconverted Sinners,” and read part of the introduction. It was comforting, because one quickly realizes that there is nothing new under the sun. In the “Introduction” Andrew Thomson says:

There are two principal modes of persuading men to repent and believe the Gospel.…

Dear friends, you heard yesterday the chief characteristics of a Christian man, that his whole life and being is faith and love. Faith is directed toward God, love toward man and one’s neighbor, and consists in such love and service for him as we have received from God without our work and merit.…

Over the past few weeks, I had several conversations about my debate with Dr Avalos, which took place last April at Iowa State University. One of the issues that Dr Avalos brought up during that debate was slavery, which he wanted to suggest that the Bible was immoral because there are laws governing slavery.…

The Communist Letter in the previous post made me think about a bit that I read in “Dedication and Leadership” a few years ago, as I believe the “intentionality” that the Communists lived with needs to be an intentionality that Christians live with.…

The Apostle Paul warns or speaks of not receiving the grace of God in vain (1 Co. 15.10 & 2 Cor. 6.1). The way many talk about grace today it presupposes that this cannot be done, but the Scriptures speak clearly.…

“God is a Person and can be known in increasing degrees of intimate acquaintance as we prepare our hearts for the wonder. It may be necessary for us to alter our former beliefs about God as the glory that gilds the Sacred Scriptures dawns over our interior lives.

In recent years, I have heard more and more discussion about Christian involvment in social issues. In some ways, there has been a rise in an “evangelical social gospel”. This is good, as there are clear implications to Jesus having “all authority under heaven and earth”, but, more often than not, there are draw backs.…
