MONDAY, OCTOBER 1st:
WILLIAM NORMAN GRIGG, former Mormon High Priest who converted to Evangelical Christianity, former Senior Editor of The New American magazine and the author of such controversial books as Freedom On The Altar: The UN's Crusade Against God & Family (see http://aobs-store.com/store/product70.html), Global Gun Grab: The UN's Campaign to Disarm Americans (see http://aobs-store.com/store/product2.html) and The Gospel of Revolt: Feminism vs. the Family will unveil some of the secrets behind one of the oldest student secret societies in the United States: "THE ORDER OF SKULL & BONES" (formerly known as "The Brotherhood of Death"). This strange, Masonic-like society, based at Yale University in New Haven, CT, has been cloaked in secrecy since its founding in 1832. Members have suprisingly included both those identified as political "conservatives" such as Republican President George W. Bush and political "liberals" such as Democratic Senator John Kerry. When both men were interviewed separately by Tim Russert of "Meet the Press" and were asked about the organization, both declined to offer any details. Mr. Grigg will also address the question of whether or not God-honoring, Bible-believing Christians can ever appropriately belong to such secret societies.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2nd:
JERRY & FERN HILL, cofounders of Timothy Hill Children's Ranch in Riverhead, Long Island, NY (see www.TimothyHillRanch.org) will address the theme "TRIUMPH IN THE MIDST OF TRAGEDY". I urge you to listen to this interview with the Hills as they share their heart-wrenching story of the death of their first born child Timothy who was ushered into the arms of the Lord on May 11,1972, after being hit by a truck while riding his bicycle to school at the age of 13, and how God used this horrific tragedy to give birth to a home for orphaned, abused and abandoned children. Over the the past 27 years, Timothy Hill Children's Ranch has become a beacon of light to hundreds of children and families in crisis. The Ranch family is committed to modeling the life of Jesus Christ by loving, nurturing and serving children and families while, providing safety and hope within a residential setting. Several alumni, now adults, often return with their own families to share how they were helped through a time of hopelessness... And how a young boy named Timothy Hill had a dream about them.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3rd:
STEVE CAMP, Grammy Award winning song writer, Christian recording artist, theologically Reformed apologist, controversial Christian blogger and founder of audienceONE Ministries (see www.a1m.org) will address one of the most highly debated themes within Christendom for nearly two millennia, "THE ORDO SALUTIS: the Biblical Sequence of Stages Involved in Salvation (& How Their Order Effects Evangelism)". Many if not most within Modern Evangelicalism believe that faith precedes the new birth, or regeneration. Steve Camp, however, being a believer in the Doctrines of Sovereign Grace, will seek to prove that those who teach this have unwittingly reversed God's ordained order for the salvation of lost men, and that the order is vitally important in evangelism when attempting to accurately convey the deadness & impotence of lost men in their sin, the unlimited power of an almighty & sovereign God, and the glorious & amazing gift that salvation--in its totality--truly is (including the gift of faith itself).
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4th:
STEVEN J. LAWSON, the senior pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church in Mobile, Alabama (see www.cfbcmobile.org), will address the theme of his highly acclaimed work on a greatly misunderstood figure, THE EXPOSITORY GENIUS OF JOHN CALVIN (see http://www.ligonier.org/publishing_reformationtrust_latest_expositorygeniuscalvin.php). As Pastor Lawson said in his own words, �The aim of this book is to raise the bar for a new generation of expositors.� As MonergismBooks.com describes this work, "Looking to the past for outstanding Bible-based, Christ-centered, and life-changing preaching, Dr. Steven J. Lawson focuses on sixteenth-century Geneva, Switzerland. It was there that John Calvin ministered for decades as a faithful shepherd to a flock of believers. Here is an intimate portrait of Calvin the preacher�the core beliefs that determined his preaching style, the steps he took to prepare to preach, and the techniques he used in handling the Word of God, interpreting it, and applying it to his congregation. In the pulpit ministry of the great Reformer, Dr. Lawson finds inspiration and guidance for today�s church and calls on modern pastors to follow the Reformer�s example of strong expository preaching." Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas, Professor of systematic and practical theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Missippi, said of Lawson's book: �An infectious appreciation of the preaching of John Calvin from the pen of Steven Lawson. No one reading this volume can fail to appreciate the debt we owe to the Genevan Reformer. Lawson has consulted the best of current scholarship and has produced a comprehensive distillation of the contours of the Reformer�s preaching and, with it, a compelling advocacy of consecutive expository preaching. A magnificent achievement.�
