Theology in Music

Michael Reeves tackles the subject of music and theology, and his thesis is that music is not theologically neutral, but expresses the composer’s worldview.

A word of warning from the website:

NOTE: The quality of the audio in these recordings is not really up to scratch, but since the content is so good we thought it worthwhile to publish them. You’ll find you barely notice the sound quality after 5 minutes (but if you’re finding the audio quality frustrating, give the discussion a miss as that’s where it’s worst!).

Understanding Complementarianism With Yarborough & Carson

Don Carson and Bob Yarborough were the guest speakers at the 2012 EFCA Theology Conference, and they tackled the very incendiary subject of gender.

Matt Smethurst writes on The Gospel Coalition website:

Our Lord and his inspired apostles were culturally situated, yes, but they weren’t culturally bound. Many assume that cultural rootedness automatically amounts to cultural relativity; the two, however, are simply not the same.

Followers of King Jesus must remain finally tethered “not to a political conviction or to social habit or to hermeneutical whimsy, but to divine mandate.” And for those who embrace the King’s word as their supreme authority, the divine mandate is clear. In these talks, Carson and Yarbrough have offered careful reflection on a contentious and critical issue.

The TGC site links are not working as of October 2014.  Perhaps they will be corrected at some point.

Al Mohler at the 2013 Ocean City Bible Conference

“Words to Live By” was the title of this years annual Ocean City Bible Conference, a conference which Thabiti Anyabwile has said is “One of the best-kept family conference secrets in the country. New Jersey boardwalk, a dry city, carnivals, families and fellowship, and a great week of preaching and teaching… Load up the kids and go if you can.”

Among the speakers this year are Al Mohler, Rick Holland and R. W. Glenn.
