  • Orthodoxy and Vitality

    By Josh Moody

    The following article was written for Evangelicals Now and published in their news publication for February 2014. In this month’s column, Josh Moody interviews Dr. Philip Ryken, president of Wheaton College. JM: What do you love about Wheaton College? PR: Honestly, I love almost everything about Wheaton College. I was virtually raised on this campus – my father taught English Literature here for almost 50 years – and I have a life-long love affair with this community. I love the way our faculty pursues the life of the mind, in a context where learning is integrated with faith and life. I love the breadth of our liberal arts curriculum, which invites all of our students to study great books and pursue learning across a wide range of disciplines in the arts and sciences. I love the music we make in our exceptional conservatory. I love our nationally-ranked sports teams. I love our close association with the evangelism…

    The Gospel of God #19: A Story of Wrath

    By Josh Moody

    This Sunday, March 9, at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 a.m., we will be returning to our series “The Gospel of God.” In many ways the verse we are looking at, Romans 2:5, in its context of the grace and love and kindness of God, is the one verse in the Bible that many people do not want us to read. How do we understand this part of the Bible’s teaching? How do we apply it to our lives? What does Paul mean by this “Day” that is to come? Why does that make any difference to our lives now? As I have been praying through this passage as we return to Romans, I have become more and more convinced that this teaching here in this verse in its context is the key to unlocking many a human heart, and gathering a fresh sense of all that Christ is and all that Christ has done. There…

    The Gospel of God #17 and a Pastoral Note

    By Josh Moody

    I hope you will join us this Sunday, February 16, at 8:00, 9:30, or 11:00 a.m. as we continue in our study of Paul’s letter to the Romans in our series, “The Gospel of God.” I’ll be preaching a message entitled “Homosexual Practice and Contemporary Society” from Romans 1:26-27: 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. You may watch a video preview about this week’s sermon here. In preparing for this message, and the one last week, I sent the following pastoral note to our congregation. (Note, if you missed last Sunday’s sermon, you can listen online here.) This coming weekend, February 8-9, and the following Sunday,…
