What is the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture and how does today’s hymn, How Firm a Foundation, express this vital teaching?
The gospel is clear throughout the hymn, O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing. I was struck by Wesley’s mention of living “under the law” in the tenth stanza: “Sudden expired the legal strife, ’Twas then I ceased to grieve; My second, real, living life I then began to live.”
“If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write.” ~ Martin Luther
This post is mainly excerpted from Dr. Timothy Keller’s excellent Preaching in a Secular Culture.

I’m only presenting his four main points and some quotes. I’m only scratching the surface here of a very rich nine-page document. It’s worth your time to read and absorb it. The rest of this post are quotes from Dr. Keller’s original work.
Jesus is our example in sharing our faith with others. The following is a portion from the devotional, “A Good Witness,” sent out by Truth for Life.
Since I’ve no time to watch these movies myself, I’ll link you to reviews.
