A Charitable Assessment of Landmarkism
Landmarkism began in the 19th century. It proclaims the Baptist church as the only true church, and it unqualifiedly denies the universal church. Is it correct to do so? Did Christians, including Baptists prior to the 19th century, really miss this doctrine for almost 2,000 years?

Gavin Ortlund, Jordan Cooper, & Baptism in the Early Church
Dr. Cooper brought some valid criticisms to Dr. Ortlund's argument for credobaptism from the earliest years of post-canonical church history. I want to weigh in to this conversation, not predominantly for criticism's sake, but by way of developing the discussion from a Baptist perspective.

The Problem with Interpreting Ezekiel 40ff Literally
There is a big temple described in Ezekiel 40ff. But is it merely describing a bigger version of the first and second temple, or something other and greater?

The Amalgamated Man
What if we understood each an every person to be, first and foremostly, a creation of God which bears God's image. And then, what if we defined God's image according to what God actually says it is? If we did that, I think we would have another Renaissance.
