This past week has been a whirlwind.

Since Suzie’s first bout with cancer, the disease never went away. It has been lurking and waiting to pounce. Pounce it has.

Her abdomen has more than a few tumors that are rapidly growing and multiplying. The primary target has been on her liver. This organ has the most tumors and the largest ones.

If you are new to this website, you will discover occasional articles titled Concierge. The title comes from my days in the hotel industry in which I often directed guests to worthwhile places to eat or to visit.

Logic On Fire: Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

When I was in college, one of the textbooks assigned for a class on preaching was Preaching and Preachers by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. Since then, I have had a deep appreciation for the 20th century preaching giant.

Lloyd-Jones is best known for his ministry at Westminster Chapel in London for 30 years. His preaching drew multitudes as he proclaimed the Word of God to a generation effected by WWII and by the culture of Modernity. His writing was expansive including his best known multi-volume work on Romans.

Logic on Fire Available on Amazon Prime

With this background in mind, I became excited when I saw that a 2015 movie titled, Logic on Fire: The Life and Legacy of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones became available on Amazon’s Prime Video. If you are a Prime member, then this movie is currently available to you for free. You owe it to yourself to settle in for 101 minutes and watch it.

Do Humans Become Angels?

Humans become angels. At least that’s the theology that some Christians espouse when they speak of the death of a beloved Christian.

The death of a loved one brings about opposing thoughts and emotions. If the one who passed professed to being a Christian, our response will be a combination of joy and sorrow. Joy that the departed one is now in the presence of the Lord. Sorrow that they will be absent from us while we remain in the world.

However, far too often I hear or read some sort of response to death that simply is not Christian. Christian teaching is not that men become angels when they die. It is fallacy to say that somebody earned their angel wings.
