#MartyrMonday : Hellen Stirke & “Blaspheming” Mary
Look deeply at the Reformation, and you will see that it’s more than printing presses and theses nailed to doors and theological debates. It’s the story of ordinary believers, husbands and wives and fathers and mothers, poised in the words of Scripture, reclaiming the primacy of Jesus Christ for their lives, their marriages, their families, and their eternal hopes, who stand as a cloud of witnesses calling us to do likewise. They call us to hold our biblical convictions without wavering, to enjoy God’s earthly blessings, and to endure all momentary afflictions now for the great eternal joy set before us. Today, we learn about Hellen Stirke, one of the ordinary people who was martyred for her Protestant faith.

Love is Love- A Powerful “Coming Out” Story
Powerful Coming Out Story- Love Is Love Emily spent 7 years living out her same-sex attractions while being outspoken about God’s acceptance of her lifestyle. After her engagement with her female partner ended, she was invited to a Bible study. This weekly examination of the holiness of God challenged her day after day until her life completely changed. It is a powerful testimony that calls the homosexual community not to heterosexuality but to holiness. Emily’s story lovingly addresses the heart of the matter: that homosexuality is only one sin among many that manifests itself within a sinful heart. Only by the grace and mercy of God can we be transformed.

Burn The Hand That Signs
Between January and mid-February 1556, Thomas Cranmer gave way to pressure to recant his Protestantism and submit to papal authority. After privately recanting, he was required to explain himself in the pulpit of University Church, Oxford. Much to the surprise of the throne, Cranmer publicly denounced his private recantations. He also denied papal authority, and, knowing that he would immediately be executed, declared that he would punish the hand that originally signed the recantations by burning it first.

Christian Freedom & Freedom Of Conscience + an apology to those I hurt
Christ has purchased for believers under the gospel freedom from the guilt of sin, from the condemning wrath of God, and from the curse of the moral law. He has also freed them from the evil world we live in, from enslavement to Satan, from the dominion of sin, the evil of afflictions, the sting of death, the victory of the grave, and from everlasting damnation. In Christ believers have free access to God and can obey him, not out of slavish fear, but with a childlike love and a willing mind. All these freedoms were also held by believers under the law. However, under the New Testament, the liberty of Christians has been enlarged to include freedom from the yoke of the ceremonial law, to which the Jewish church was subjected. Christians also have greater boldness of access to the throne of grace and a fuller gift of the Spirit of God than believers ordinarily had under the law. I promise, I didn’t want to make anyone mad with my previous podcast, today I apologize and try to better explain.

Happy Birthday John Calvin!
The true genius of Geneva was not the mind of John Calvin, but passion for the glory of God. Every generation needs to unlock the treasures of Scripture for the peculiar perils and possibilities of its own time. Our generation no less than any. I think we will only do this well if we have been profoundly and joyfully mastered by the greatest reality the Scriptures reveal — the majesty of God’s glory. I celebrate John Calvin’s 510th birthday by learning a bit about him, then spend time in prayer and meditation.
