The Pen

Pulpit Notes

Monday’s Program – Alan Doane; On Monday’s program, JD begins by discussing a recent article he posted at Pulpit & Pen about whether or not Christians are obligated to register or surrender their firearms. Click here for the link. JD also spoke to Montana legislator, Alan Doane, about various issues relating to Christians in politics. In that conversation, JD and Alan talked about a recent decision in North Dakota to allow a man already “married” in a gay “marriage” to marry a woman in the state – that article can be found here. JD also addressed a snarky and unhelpful post from Peter Lumpkins at Synergism Tomorrow, found here. For the Daily Downgrade, JD issued a warning about Rick Warren, concerning the following tweet:


Tuesday’s Program; Concerning Ergun Caner and Tim Rogers –  JD mentions the Biblical Counseling, Psychology and the Church Conference in Boise, Idaho and said he would give the dates – they are January 23-25 and you can register by calling (208) 371-6960. JD discussed the “twitter riot” caused by Caner’s claims that all the videos of him lying are fraudulent. Dr. White’s post concerning how this “riot” started can be found here. JD also discussed Tim Rogers’ need for repentance.


If you would like to call him or contact him to repent – and/or contact those who are in a position to call Rogers to repentance, here is their information:
