Dear WE: In 1 Corinthians chapter one, Paul tells us that the cross is the power of God and the wisdom of God. Then in chapter two, he says that if the rulers of the world had understood the wisdom of God that they would not have crucified the Lord. How do we reconcile these […]

In this episode, we call a thing what it is. Which means that Gerhard Forde may have some issues, but his book, “On Being A Theologian Of The Cross” totally rocks. And Pastor Fisk tells you why. Have you wondered about a theology of glory vs. a theology of the cross? What about the third use of the law and substitutionary atonement? Pietism? Legalism?

A friend of mine believes that God causes suffering, […]

What follows is a pretty amazing video conversation that was sent to me by a viewer.

What are you thought on Where God meet Man? I am particularly interested in your thoughts regarding his statements dealing with the substationary atonement. Thank you for your time. […]

Hey WE Team. Y’all are great! Keep up the good videos and Q&A. So here’s the deal. I was recently made aware of a sort of “adopt a street prayer strategy” through my church and would like your thoughts. The idea is that as many local churches as possible band together in “a very non-denominational […]
