TAU Beginnings

by | Jan 24, 2020 | Theology

On January 15, I was reminded that it has been two years since we started ThingsAbove.Us. The reminder came by way of a tiny bit of hardship where our domain name expired precisely two years after we purchased it. We got that fixed, but I wondered how many of our readers weren’t around back then.

So even though our first official post wasn’t until Jan 31, 2018, I want to celebrate two years as team bloggers by featuring a few of our first posts. Posts which are worthy to be read, but probably don’t get much screen time.

I’ve included Justin’s post about his wife’s stroke (what a crazy time), Allen’s exhortation that Jesus is already Lord, Tim’s conversion-to-Calvinism story, Jason’s persuasive essay to think biblically about God, Guns and Government and a post I thought would be evergreen where I explain how to have a focus on Things Above Us while living in this world as sojourners.

Garrett wasn’t on the team at the start, but he was around by March and brought (still brings) especially interesting AND academic quality posts regarding many topics only handled by seminary blogs or journals.

Enjoy!

The First and Second Birth of John Bunyan

On November 28, 1628 John Bunyan was born. I am grateful for Bunyan's commitment to the Word of God. For his writing of the Pilgrim's Progress. For the example he has left behind for us to follow. But before all of that, he had to be born again. How did this happen in...

The Word Christmas is not in the Bible. Never once does Paul, or Peter, or James, or any of New Testament tell us that we must celebrate the birth of Christ. In fact, sometimes we must lament some of what Christmas has come to mean to many people. To many, it is a...

The One Response Conservatives Don’t Give to National Crises

In my 3.5+ decades of life on earth, I have lived through a few “national crises”. Some things I would not label so much as a “national” crisis but more of a conservative crisis. That is, for example, things like what we are dealing with right now with the so-called...

    Love the reviews, guys. I’m nearly finished with (and have *IMMENSELY* enjoyed!) Joel Beeke’s “Reformed Systematic Theology.” I’d love to hear your thoughts on it! It’s the first of an intended four volumes, so I’m not sure how you’d need to approach something like that, though.
