God's Living Machine
Few creatures in God's animal kingdom can capture the imagination more powerfully than a hummingbird. Their aeronautical abilities are stunning. But the genius of these birds isn’t limited to flight. Each day, they must consume twice their body weight in nectar to fuel their voracious metabolisms. The incredible biological mechanisms that make this possible are masterpieces of the Lord's design and engineering.

Put These in Your Pipe
and Smoke 'Em!
"The gospel at its very core is, in a way, exclusive—something about which early Christians felt no embarrassment. Their God was awesome in the sense that an earthquake or a thunderstorm is awesome. Our modern age wants God to be awesome in the sense of a favorite teen girl band.
- Carl Trueman

"On the cross, God treated Jesus as if He lived your life so He could treat you as if you lived Christ’s life. That’s imputation. That’s substitution. Through faith alone by grace alone because of Christ alone! To those who truly repent of their sin and trust the Lord Jesus Christ alone."

"We obey *from* our acceptance, not *for* our acceptance." – Jared Wilson

"The gospel is an invitation to receive a gift. But many people hear it as a summons to do better. ...the gospel is not about something we do. It is about what God has done for us in Jesus Christ."
- Sinclair Ferguson

“What kind of God would He be if His Word, being insufficient, were in need of a supplement from men.”
- Martin Luther

5 Things Everyone Should Know About the Trans-Movement
The proliferation of “gender identity” designations in every sphere of life, from educational institutions to corporations and government entities, has led many to ask how it began and where it might lead.

Until recently, the idea that someone might be “transgender” was confined to the margins of society and was seen as an extremely rare phenomenon. Today, rising numbers of people, especially in the younger generations, are not only identifying as the opposite sex, as transgender, but are choosing a new gender identity from an ever-growing list of made-up options. Some of these include “nonbinary,” “agender” or “genderqueer.” None of these so-called gender identities can be defined biologically or in material terms; nor are they consistent and compatible with God's design for human flourishing: Male and Female. 

Here are 5 things everyonr should know about the transgender movement. Read More
Confessing Sin, Not Celebrating It: A Look at "Pride Month"
Many in America just finished a month-long celebration of pride, accompanied with smug virtue signaling.
In the fall of 1942, C.S. Lewis took to the airways of his nation to encourage his fellow citizens to stand resolute in the midst of war.

In the face of an actual existential threat, Lewis didn’t speak of contrived notions of social justice or the faulty logic of defining ourselves by our desires. He didn’t talk of a person’s right to do whatever he wanted but instead spoke of every man’s obligation to do what he must. Lewis didn’t flatter with messages of moral license, but rather he reminded all his listeners of God’s moral law.
When C.S. Lewis took to his day’s version of social media via the BBC, he didn’t speak in platitudes of “affirmation” and “tolerance.” He didn’t talk sanctimoniously of “inclusion” and “love.” Instead, he spoke forthrightly about what he called his nation’s “Great Sin.”

And what was this sin that Lewis described as “worse than any other?” 
“There is one vice,” he said.,” [a sin] of which no man in the world is free … [That] essential vice, that utmost evil, is pride. Read More
The Man in the Middle Said...
In this brief, funny yet profound out-take of Pastor Alistair Begg's sermon on the Message and Power of the Cross (from 1Corinthians 1:18–31), he gives the only answer to how anyone can be saved from God's wrath and into His Heaven. Watch Here

Luke 23:39-43:
"One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, “Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!” But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Amazing Grace! Soli Deo Gloria!
It's Never Too Late to Share the Gospel, Even If You're President
On August 7, 1982 my old boss President Ronald Reagan penned a personal letter to his dying atheist, neurosurgeon father-in-law, Loyal Davis. In his four page letter the president urgently, passionately pleaded with him to trust Christ.

The recently discovered letter reveals much about president’s own faith. It also explains why Nancy Reagan who was with her father when he died would later write that he had accepted Christ days after receiving the letter. Check out the president's moving letter in his own handwriting Here
Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism's Looming Disaster - Voddie Baucham New. Important Book
Below we're sharing with you this helpful excerpt from the Preface to Voddie Baucham's highly recommended book about CRT, SJ and "Wokeism."

"In order to understand Critical Theory, it is important to understand how the words “critical” and “theory” are used. In the social sciences, “critical” is “geared toward identifying and exposing problems in order to facilitate revolutionary political change.”7 In other words, it implies revolution. It is not interested in reform. Hence, we do not “reform” the police; we “defund” the police or abolish them. “It is more interested in problematizing—that is, finding ways in which the system is imperfect and making noise about them, reasonably or not—than it is in any other identifiable activity, especially building something constructive.”8 This is complicated by the fact that Critical Theory denies objective truth. “An approach based on critical theory calls into question the idea that objectivity is desirable or even possible,” write Özlem Sensoy and Robin DiAngelo in Is Everyone Really Equal?"

“The people bowed and prayed / to the neon god they made.”
by Paul Simon, The Sound of Silence
It is far easier to identify the idols in other cultures than in our own. There are idols we bow down to not because we’re made to but because we want to, and those are the very hardest to acknowledge.

To take two examples: first, the average Western Christian parent finds it natural to worship the idol of children, at the expense of fidelity to God and service of his people. Of course kids are a good thing—idols usually are—but they so easily and unnoticeably become a god. It becomes so vitally important that Tommy goes swimming and Zadie has skating and Rochelle does her tutoring, and maybe they won’t have time to go to the church youth group, and maybe we won’t have time as a family to read the Bible together each day. The word of God and the people of God are important, but the greatest commitment is to the kids. When push comes to shove, we worship the image of the perfect family, and the holy God can fit in around that.

Second, the average American Christian finds it natural to worship the idol of politics. We think and pray and speak as though if our guy wins, the kingdom wins; and if he loses, then it’s hell. In other words, we treat our favorite for president, or our political party, as a god. Read More

"A Joyful Heart is Good Medicine..." - Proverbs 17:22
WACMM - "Doing Together What We Cannot Do Alone" (since 1999)

Given a growing openness among men to re-gathering and re-building, we're grateful to the Lord to announce we're going forward with a Fall 2021 conference!
Unlike all of our previous 24 men’s conferences (and unlike most every other men’s event across the country), we’re making some very significant changes. The program will be a ½ day program and we will not be charging for registration. Our goal in this “Welcome Back” Conference is to offer a first-cabin event while working to simplify the promotions, to reduce costs, and to make the messages and fellowship freely accessible to every man in the DMV. Hope you'll make it a priority to join us and help us get the word out.

As always, we appreciate your reading our Emales and we covet your prayers. Feel free to contact us if we can be of service and encouragement!

Locking Arms Together for the Sake of the Gospel,


Dave Brown
Director and Pastor-at-Large
