Happy Thanksgiving!

A good read that goes along our Sunday school series on evangelism. Do we have a desire to rescue the perishing?

"What if our Lord does grant our prayer and saturate us through and through with an undying zeal for the souls of our fellow humans? What if we do commit ourselves to rescue the perishing? What would that look like?"

"Rescue the Perishing" by Larry E. Wilson, November New Horizons

A powerful article. The idol worship in our very communities poured out in drug abuse is undeniable. We are the people of hope living in those very communities. May this article inspire you to be a hope for your neighbor who knows nothing about Christ and his gospel.

"Often, the very community Christians suffering from addiction need the most is the community they most wish to avoid. We need to cultivate a culture of embracing broken people as broken people."

Hey Church!

This is the first part of our report on the most recent evangelistic events in our church.

On September 11th at 2 Silos in Manassas, we decided to have our meetup group on the topic “How can a good God allow evil?”. For the christian perspective, it was Eric and Becky George, Isaac and Heather Robeson, Jeremy Hefner and I (Elder Colón). For the unbelievers perspective, we had three atheists named Aaron, Eric and Samuel. We engaged on the topic for three and half hours into the night and it got very personal at the end of it but in a very good way.

Brother Eric started off the conversation by reading a horrific story as in to give an example of how real evil is and then proceded to ask the christians how do we make sense of evil?

Brother Jeremy Hefner answered the challenge by giving the an account of the events of creation and the fall in sin. That Adam chose to disobey God of his own will and sinned against him therefore the evil we encounter is the consequences of our choice in the garden. Aaron, the atheist, responded that God still created everything with the knowledge of the fall yet still proceded with the act of creation hence making him responsible for evil. Then I responded with a brief paraphrase of our confession that states:

“God, from all eternity, did, by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely, and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass: yet so, as thereby neither is God the author of sin, nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures; nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.“

Nothing arouses our rebellious and sinful nature quite like God’s sovereignty. The reactions of our atheist friends was of complete disregard and disbelief. We, as fallen human beings, simply cannot accept a God that decree’s evil and yet is not the author of sin. He cannot have a good and moral purpose for it and this cannot be HIS story. By our sin nature, all of creation needs to orbit around man. A creature from the dust rather then the self sufficient, all powerful Triune God. I asked Aaron what was his background to get a temperature of his soul and what has lead him to embrace the faith of atheism. Aaron was kind enough to respond candidly and said he was the son of a fundamentalist pentecostal pastor. He grew up with a radical extreme of Christianity and was clearly deeply hurt by it. I expressed to Aaron with love and respect, that he has not stopped being religious. Man cannot help but be a priest and worship. The issue is whether we fall at the feet of Christ or at the feet of idols. Aaron saw that his passion, zeal, and worship for “nothingness” was evident in his life and his facial expression was surprising. He took a moment to think about it and then continued to put God on the judgement seat and continued to suppress the God he knows is there...

More to come later.

Updated schedule for the 2019 Machen conference season

Hey Church!

Today we had a great time hiking in the Appalachian trail! Beautiful sights and fellowship with both familiar and new people.

We had a wonderful exchange with Eric, an ardent proponent of atheism. He’s part of the Beltway Atheists group in Northern Virginia. We began our conversation at the peak of the hike as I (Elder Colón) raised the question of consistency between the atheistic worldview (no God, no ultimate purpose. We are meaningless matter simply reacting over time) and the religious nature of the most outspoken prophets of atheism that preach as if there was ultimate purpose and transcendent meaning to people and the world. If atheism is true, then nothing ultimately needs to be true and meaningful hence the inconsistency between what they profess to believe and how they actually live.

Eric did his best to justify the transcendent nature of humanity in living for things that go beyond mere matter but brother Justin Stone graciously exchanged with him reminding him of how thats not possible without the Triune God of the scriptures as the foundation and starting point of all things.

The conversation was very gracious and cordial but filled with salt and light. Eric was enjoying the exchange and we left it open ended to leave room for more conversation in the next meetup. We thanked him for coming and spending his time with us and we both looked forward to the next one!
