Authors Of Baptism Book Have Book Signing Oct. 19 At Silverdale Cumberland Presbyterian

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Authors Rev. Justin Griffin and Rev. Phillip Layne will have a book signing event on Oct. 19, from 4-7 p.m. at Silverdale Cumberland Presbyterian Church, 7407 Bonny Oaks Dr, Chattanooga, Tn. 37421. Mr. Griffin and Mr. Layne, residents of Norris City, Il., will be available to sign copies of their book, Baptism: Truths and Misinformation.

Pastor and theologian Justin Griffin has intensely studied the issue of baptism from a Reformed perspective.  As in his other book, The Truth about Images of Jesus and the Second Commandment, Mr. Griffin wants Christians to know why they do what they do.
 
Organizers said, "In Baptism: Truths and Misinformation, Mr. Griffin and Mr. Layne clarify a variety of common misconceptions about baptism, but they also want to express how important—paramount!—it is to examine the Scripture against itself, not someone's opinion. Above anyone else's teaching or voice, God's Word should speak for itself, and the wise, humble, and hopeful Christian will never stray off course as long as he checks his work against the ultimate answer key."

Roy Exum: Tipping The Preacher

I got an unusual telephone call the other day from someone I love who asked my help in solving one of life’s delicate mysteries. It is a tough question: “How do you tip a preacher?” In the first place, you never tip a preacher. It’s the preacher who gives out the tips, helping to keep you on the straight-and-narrow in your quest to waltz through the Pearly Gates. But there are ... (click for more)
