References:We have reached a crisis in the Greek synthesis in the west. The old humanist universities and religious institutions in the west are rotting out. These old universities will never attain the level of degradation the Greeks and Romans achieved. Classical education will never be able to bring it back to the gymnasiums. The Catholic church will never be able to legitimize pederasty. Kevin Swanson provides the history of Christianity vs. the old Greek and Roman treatment of homosexuality in this edition of Generations. Sadly, some evangelicals cannot comprehend the extent of the disintegration of the west. They can't seem to bring themselves to use the "R" word - Repentance. According to recent news reports, ministries like Exodus International and Focus on the Family are upset with the Family Research Council for giving an award to a pastor who used harsh words for homosexuality.
J. C. Ryle provides the very best commentary and devotional exposition of the book of Matthew that can be found. We could do no better than to use his expositions of the Gospel of Matthew for our Family Bible Study Guide Series. Writing in the 19th century as an evangelical Anglican pastor, Ryle intended these “Expository Thoughts” for family worship. His writing is strikingly simple, profound, practical, and passionate at the same time.
