by Phil JohnsonIt's been more than six years since I retired from the blogosphere. For half a decade, whenever someone would ask if I missed blogging, my honest answer was, "Not at all. Never even once." There wasn't a single moment in all those years when I thought, I wish I were still blogging so I could write something more than a Tweet about this issue. In my seven years of blogging, I had posted on practically every issue I really cared about. I ran out of opinions.Some HistoryI began blogging in 2005 because I was concerned about my fellow evangelicals' blithe acceptance of the so-called Emerging Church Movement. It seemed as if every elite evangelical agency—from Christianity Today to the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC)—was foolishly hoping the Emergent Narrative would be The Next Big Thing. They were practically cheerleading for the movement! D. A. Carson was a rare voice of dissent, but his reply to the Emergent idea was (in my view) much too tepid to be an effective critique.I had tried posting some opinions in the comments sections of a couple of popular blogs, but they made it clear they were not interested in dissenting views. One famous blog closed their comments completely when I tried joining their discussion. So on the last weekday of May 2005 I formally opened my own blog. My main goal was merely to articulate and catalogue my own misgivings about the drive to postmodernize evangelical Christianity. I had no expectation that anyone outside my circle of friends (and my Sunday school class) would be any more interested in my opinions than those blogs that had shooed me away when I commented.My first real blogpost went live the day after Memorial Day that year. It was a poke at the "Young, Restless, Reformed" movement, though I wrote it a year and a half before Christianity Today and Collin Hansen gave that movement its name.Right away, readership far exceeded what I anticipated. I immediately realized that I had inadvertently jumped into the deep end of the pool without any floaties.PyroManiacS: The birth of the Group BlogSo six months in, I invited Dan Phillips and Frank Turk to partner with me in the effort. I'd never met either one of them before, but I'd read their comments on line, and I knew 1) that they shared my views about the folly of postmodernism, and 2) that they were gifted writers with minds full of verbal mischief, more than capable of the kind of critique I wanted to level against the Emergent movement. So we launched the team blog in January of 2006.We wrote a lot of good, thoughtful posts attempting to provide Emergents with the "conversation" they were saying they wanted. But we quickly noticed a couple of surprising trends. First, the more purposefully rational and irenic our content, the less discussion our writing evoked. Second, no matter what we wrote or how we wrote it, there were swarms of smug postmoderns prepared to deconstruct our prose, pleading for every kind of "tolerance" other than tolerance of others' ideas, preaching love and kindness while eagerly spoiling for a fight with us.The High-Water MarkFrankly, making fun of postmodernism's foolish inconsistencies did far more good than trying to reason with postmoderns. Looking back, it seems to me that the Po-Motivators may well have done more to open readers' eyes to the dangers of evangelical postmodernism than all the text we wrote combined. I'd hate to think those posters were the blog's high water mark, but it's true that the advent of the posters marked the turning point after which our postmodern critics dropped some of their trademark arrogance, and some of them actually left the Dark Side and joined the discussion we were having.Anyway, the Emergent movement finally died, and we're thankful for that. When we knew the fad was well and truly over (that the popular movement phase had passed, anyway), blogging seemed less urgent and less appealing. I formally retired in 2012 on my 59th birthday, and most of the evangelical blogosphere breathed a deep, cosmic sigh of relief.At the time, I remarked to anyone who raised the subject that although Emergent was dead and discredited as a movement, it had unleashed countless postmodern ideas and deconstructionist methodologies into the evangelical community, and these would bear some nasty fruit within a decade or less.I see the fulfillment of that prophecy in a myriad of ways today—including the emboldening of Andy Stanley, the rise of a quasi-evangelical brand of Critical Race Theory, eroding definitions of "biblical inerrancy," evangelical waffling on the moral questions raised by people who classify their own "sexual orientation" as LGBTQ, evangelicals still craving academic recognition or popular esteem from worldly minded people, the recent drift of Russell Moore and the ERLC—and other related or similar issues.So Here's the Thing . . .I suddenly have the itch to write about some of these things. Not every day, of course, but from time to time—perhaps weekly or so. Dan Phillips is now blogging to a bigger audience at PJ Media, and Frank Turk is more determined than I to maintain his retirement from controversial social media. Still, I'd love to get occasional contributions from them—or from others, such as Darrell Harrison, Justin Peters, Josh Buice, or anyone else who shares both my passion for biblical Christianity and my contempt for every effort to make the evangelical movement more politically correct. Consider this an open invitation to submit articles you think might be of interest to my readers. If you write enough blogposts that fit, I'll give you a set of keys to the blog and make you an official PyroManiac.Watch this space for my first actual issues-oriented re-entry into the blogosphere. If the Lord wills, I'll post it sometime next week.Phil's signature
Acts 4:20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. The religious leaders threatened the men of God. They were told that they had to quit preaching about Jesus. God's men answered with a great truth. There is no option for us. We must speak. We must tell. God has done so much in our lives that we must show others. We have to share the goodness of our great God. Now it is our turn. We must decide now that we will share what God is doing in our lives. We will tell others how great our God is. He saved us. He has given us an abundant life. We know forgiveness. We know freedom from sin. We know what it is to be accepted by God Himself. Let's tell others! Photo by jonathan Ford on Unsplash

Temple Baptist Church - 5-16-20182 Peter 2:9-22Introduction:A. We need to remember our context tonight to get the proper meaning of the verses that I will deal with. I am going to look at these verses in reverse order to show who these people are and how they got here.B. Verses 20-22 have been used more by way of application than contextual interpretation. 1. I fear that the true meaning of these verses has been lost because of topical peaching. YOU MUST always give a Biblical interpretation of a verse before making a practical interpretation! 2. This is simply Biblical Hermeneutics. It is called the Context Mention of Bible Interpretation. When taking a verse out of its context, it often becomes a pretext! Great application but no Biblical interpretation. This can lead to serious doctrinal problems.3. It lends itself to Biblical ignorance which destroys the people of God. God's people are destroyed for a “lack of knowledge.” Preaching through the Bible book by book establishes the people of God doctrinally.C. When you get to these verses, the context has not changed as the first word of verse 20 in the word “For.” The Holy Spirit is now going to draw a conclusion to chapter two. Chapter two begins and ends with false teachers!D. In verses 20-22, these Old Testament false prophets and New Testament false teachers did not lose their salvation, they were never saved. You can wash them all that you want to make the outside smell a little better, but that does not change their inward nature: dogs are dogs and hogs are hogs! 1. Their Dereliction. “falling away”2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, (2) That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition …2 Peter 2:17-20 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. (18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. (19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. (20) For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.a. Many used the Greek word for “falling away,” which gives us a commonly used word “apostasy.” The words “falling away” give us the actual meaning of “falling away from a former position.” To fall away from something, you must have once stood for something!b. These “dogs” and “hogs” vomited up and left their wallowing in the mire. The “dog” detested but later invested in heresy. The “hog” detested the mire but later returned to its filth.2. Their Deception.a. Their damnableness. 2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.b. Their deceiving. 2 Thessalonians 2:2-3 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (3) Let no man deceive you by any means …1) “spirit” A spirit that is disobedient to the Scriptures. Teachers who teach and act contrary to clear Scripture and say that they are led by the Holy Spirit.2) “word” A message that does not comply with the Scriptures. Man-made doctrines that do not line up with the clear doctrinal teaching of the Scriptures.3) “letter as from us” A false “word of God” that takes precedent over “The Word of God.” False “bibles” from perverted underlying texts that bring about confusion over what is or is not Scripture.c. Their being deceived. 2 Peter 2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.3. Their Damnation.a. Their return. 2 Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.b. Their accountability. 2 Peter 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.c. Their damnation. Matthew 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? (23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Prayer, praise and provision.The Water for Life ministry returned and drilled 2 more wells for us. One for the school across from us that turned out great. Enough water for the school and surrounding homes... including our local mayor. So maybe a softer tone toward our Honduras Missions ministry.Plus it keeps all the school children from crossing a busy highway to our property for water. Seven people have been hit including one of ours in the last 10 years. The second well was in the mountains for the Ven a Mi Baptist Church. Water is not as abundant in the mountains, but we are hoping it will provide the church and surrounding area clean drinking water for the first time.Pastor Ruis is healing well with the meds and care that was provided. So much so he came to visit us and is now preaching up in the mountain for one of our preachers. He plans to return to Cuba June 6th to deal with a property that is being donated. They are insisting it be in the ministry's name. So Honduras Missions will have property in Cuba. The general and his family and extended family were baptized and have begun showing fruit. We also sent christian movies to watch, some were for entertainment, evangelism and science videos . His sister in law admits she hated Americans, but after trusting the LORD and watching the videos she sees them with new eyes and a new heart. (she is donating the land) Amen. The general now sits with his enlisted men to eat and talk and is taking baby steps in witnessing. His son is also. Remember they have known nothing but atheism, communism and evolution for 60yrs. Everything we have said is new to them. Ruis found in talks they want a couple of hiking backpacks like they saw with Canadian tourist in Africa and a nice guitar. (They are very limited in what they can purchase) So we are looking for a way to aquire and send them with Ruis.A few weeks back Cindy showed up at church. She was the 11yr old girl with us for a short time whom we we had a large tumor removed from her throat. She was removed from our care shortly after surgery. She is now 18 and has had it rough, and had a baby since leaving us. After visiting church she began to beg to return. Up to 100 calls a day. Then she just showed up at our home as we pulled out to church, she had no place to live. We sought wisdom and ended up placing her with Pastor Augusto's family for now. They live as poor as church mice, but are rich in what Cindy needs most. Now we are looking for ways to help them help her.Dia de Madre 2018 in La Cruz Baptist Church went very well. A young preacher must be walking close to the LORD to preach prov 24:25 and 12:9 on mothers day... and have most of the women stand in prayer to do better at the invitation.. amen... Similar activities in all the other Honduras Missions churches as well... overall a very good day. Amen.One of the fathers that reconciled with the Lord in the outreach was in church today and came up to me saying he wants to serve the Lord. Amen. Old Kia is toast... no one hurt. Amen. Alberto, Lenin, and David were heading up the mountain to check why the new well pump quit working. A bad place on the road caused them to hit a rock driveway of a house. Frame broke, twisted and buckled, rt front tire moved 6in back, sub frame bent, cab mounts bent and broken and cab moved 3in forward windshield broke from Lenin's head and the taillight asy broke off. Changed one tire and drove slowly home under its own power leaving skid marks the whole way... weee. Need a frame to put it back in service... Thank you for the prayers.. The boys took cement up the mountain to fix the driveway they broke and stopped in the river for sand. Kia... will take much more than a day... I knew of a used good frame for sale for $1000 a while back... need to find it again and the funds to buy it... will be a lot of work but a good truck is hard to come by here...
