The Reformation Means Resurrection

By Evan Knies

On the morning of October 31st 2016, my cousin’s body was laid in the grave. It has been a tough year since his passing. He was like my older brother and he impacted those he came in contact with. My cousin had his own struggles and faults, but he had his hope rested in the gospel! The temptations he faced were great, but Christ died for his past, present, and future sins. As our family has grieved losing him in this life, we have often been reminded of the hope the gospel offers. Those who repent, turning from their sin, and trusting in Christ by faith alone will be saved. Since Christ was raised from the grave, He will raise His people from the grave!

Introduction and Thesis: The Supreme Mystery

            J.I. Packer writes that the gospel, and particularly the gospel’s central event, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, is the greatest mystery in the entire world. It is, he says, “a reality distinct from us that in our very apprehending of it remains unfathomable to us…which we therefore describe as incomprehensible.”[1] That statement seems correct, and yet it forces one to ask a very basic question: Why is the crucifixion of Christ the greatest mystery in all the world? Surely it is not because the act of crucifixion itself is outside the sphere of human knowledge. The mechanics of Roman crucifixion are fairly well known.[2] How a tortured man expires after being nailed to a stake is within the grasp of human knowledge. How then can Packer’s assertion be granted any merit? Continue reading “The Godhead at Golgotha: The Cross in Trinitarian Perspective”

Grace from the Whirlwind: The Henryville Tornado Five Years Later

By Cade Campbell

Today, March 2, 2017 is the five year anniversary of the EF4 tornado that struck Henryville, Indiana in 2012. Cade Campbell is one of the pastors at First Baptist Church Henryville and was there when the storm hit and in the days after. This article is adapted for the anniversary from an article that Cade wrote that was published by Baptist Press (BP) on March 16, 2012, “Grace from the Whirlwind.”


O worship the King all-glorious above,
O gratefully sing his power and his love:
our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days,
pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.

O tell of his might and sing of his grace,
whose robe is the light, whose canopy space.
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
and dark is his path on the wings of the storm…

– Robert Grant, “O Worship the King”
