During the Q&A session at a conference, Dr. Voddie Baucham was asked what he thought of “Christian Hip Hop.” Voddie shared his personal experiences in Los Angeles. As I respond to Voddie’s response, I also share how the Lord providentially put me in Voddie’s same neighborhood, at the same time in which he spoke about.

DISCLAIMER: I do not share all doctrinal views of every person mentioned here. I am a member of a local Church that embrace the five fundamental Doctrines of Grace that practice a Regulative Principle of Worship, Covenant Theology, and a full-strict subscription to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith. The Truth Matters conference was a
Founders Ministry asked Voddie Baucham to speak on the phrase that he coined – Ethnic Gnosticism. It appeared at first that he wasn’t too thrilled to tackle this, but he did. As another person commented under this video – “Persons who live on soundbites are going to find this hard-listening.” But I’m glad I pressed-on,
Amen, what Voddie said that I appreciate the most, is it is not necessary to know what the other person believes, to effectively witness to them. But it is more important to thoroughly know, understand, and apply what our Scriptures say. We must have a higher view of God, and His Scriptures; than of our
Full disclosure: While attempting to preach the Gospel in the streets is not easy, and I fall miserably short, but let’s not intentionally do it wrong. Sadly I’m seeing a trend on social media encouraging others to a #316Challenge by saying John 3:16 to as many people they can on Friday March 16th. This Facebook
Dr. Voddie Baucham is teaching thru a series on the ‘doctrine of salvation.’ Here he talks about the ‘covenant of redemption,’ as he preaches from John chapter 17. I don’t believe anyone’s ever asked me “why are you a Christian,” but perhaps the most God centered – God glorifying answer I could give, is this.
I believe it is not an exaggeration to say that 95% of the ‘churches’ within America, do not understand this, and they do not send-out heralds to preach (kérussó) the Gospel in the public. Instead they wrongfully claim they are “Living out the Gospel.” These same professing Christians replace the preaching (or sharing) of the
As usual, Dr. Voddie Baucham consistently displays and demonstrates Biblical courage. I believe that a majority of ‘pastors’ within America, are the compromising cowardly apologists, that Voddie spoke about. I thank God for Godly men like Voddie.
This is one of the reasons why I often evangelize alone while doing outreaches. Too many Christians surrender their Swords, while spending too much time in dialog, negotiations, gimmicks, and casual conversationalism. Have they forgotten that salvation is monergistic? The most effective thing we can do, is preach (or share) the ‘whole counsel of God,’
There’s a difference between a ‘healthy’ church, and a ‘Biblical’ church. A ‘healthy’ church will be (including but not limited to), a disciplined church, a church that disciples each other, an accountable church, a church with a membership, a small church, a church the prays often with each other, an expository / exegetical teaching church,
I agree with Voddie, many (perhaps most) ‘churches’ today engage in age segregation. They divide their congregations by age groups. Over here go the children, over here the youth, and over here we have the adults, etcetera – etcetera. The children ought to sit under the same teaching as the adults. As pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer
