Promises Made

A good book that I am reading with a friend of mine is Mark Dever's book Promises Made: The Message of the Old Testament. This is a book full of sermons preached by Dr. Dever over each of the Old Testament books of the Bible. It is a great book thus far and I have learned much already. It is easy to read and also a good book to go through in your devotional time with the Lord. You can pick this up in your local Christian bookstore or you can get it online at www.9marks.org. There is also a New Testament book as well called
Promises Kept: The Message of the New Testament.
I suggest starting with Promises Made then move on to Promises kept. Here is a good quote, from the book, to back that last suggestion up: "if you ignore the Old Testament, you ignore the basis and foundation of the new."
Happy Reading!

Boy or Girl?
I recently read in the Village Voice, a free newspaper out of New York city, about a 5 year old boy who feels he has a girl's brain in a boy's body. Thats right this 5 year old boy says he is a girl trapped in a boy's body. Disturbing? I think so.
Transgender or gender identity disorder(GID) is becoming more and more common and accepted in our culture. Currently it is labeled as a mental disorder but there are those who are pushing for this to be a "normal" way of life. Not to long ago homosexuality was lableled a mental disorder and is no longer seen in that light from the majority of the population and I fear GID will be viewed in the same light in the next few years.
This is obviously something that needs to be addressed in our culture from a biblical worldview. I don't have a solution or answers at this point in time but I do know that we need not run from these issues because, I believe, it is sin and needs to be dealt with.
If you want to read the article go to www.villagevoice.com and type in the search the title See Tom be Jane. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments.
May God be glorified in how we minister to our culture no matter how shocking or disturbing we may seem to think it is.
