My Review–– This is a fascinating little book. A friend (Brian Myers, of these Caffeinated Thoughts) sent it to me, having forgotten about reviewing it. So, here it is, a gift to me and hopefully, to you as well. The River and the Road: A Journey of Redemption is an allegory of redemption. The narrator seeks […]
A prayer meeting called “The Response” attracted 30,000 plus to Reliant Stadium in Houston on August 6th, 2011. The rally, initiated by Governor Rick Perry of Texas, was billed as non-political, though other similar rallies were planned in Iowa, Florida and Arizona, all coinciding with early Republican primaries in those states. Exactly one week to […]
Nothing like the subject of beer to bring me out of my blogging hiatus here at Caffeinated Theology. John MacArthur must not check out the Reformed blogosphere much as he thinks that beer is a more popular topic of discussion than predestination. He also says that beer seems to be “the principal symbol of Christian […]
I’m reading a the latest book by John MacArthur, Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ. He discusses how in English translations of the Bible, the Greek word doulos is often translated “servant” or “bondservant” when it should be rendered “slave.” He gives a couple of reasons why this has likely been done.

John MacArthur on being a slave for Christ. Full message here.
There has been a brouhaha erupt over this book of the Bible. I’m a little late catching onto it, but I did want to write on it. The Song of Solomon is much debated. I’ve always thought that the word pictures that Solomon used, wouldn’t work on my wife. Behold, you are beautiful, my love, […]
Definitely not a P.C. message, this video is from a message that John MacArthur gave two years ago during the National Day of Prayer service at Woodmen Valley Chapel in Colorado Springs, CO. Thoughts?
Your 2nd grade teacher lied to you. The moment you heard, “you could grow up to be President of the United States,” it was over. Let’s face it, we Americans are optimists. At the heart of American society, we believe in the power and potential to change. So this new book caught my attention: You […]
