About this product
- DescriptionThe body of law for any modern country, and in particular the United States-the most litigious society in history-is phemenally large. So, how is it that we live in an age of increasing lawlessness? People don't like to talk about God's law. For the most part contemporary Christians believe that they have arrived at a time in history that is beyond the application of any Old Testament laws, and in many cases, a time that is beyond all biblical law. People have converted the gospel of grace to mean a gospel without law-without obligation or responsibility. The good news that is preached in too many pulpits today is lawlessness, couched in terms of a gospel of positive thinking, of upbeat moralisms intended to make life better. In order to justify the human distaste for biblical law, Christians longer speak of God's law or the human obligation to it. However, the Bible is t a divided witness. It is a whole, a unity. God's Word. God's testimony is completely true.
- Author BiographyWith an advanced, formal and diverse, Liberal Arts education, majoring in Philosophy, Ross aquired a broad-based perspective of Scripture, history, logic, emotion, people and values. Following his post-ordination conversion to biblical Christianity, he has labored for Gospel renewal through radio, music, counseling, and writing. As a reformed student of Liberalism, Eastern religions, New Religious Movements and the Church Growth movement, Ross has an unusual perspective on both the need for and the fear of church renewal, revival, restoration, reformation - whatever you prefer to call it. That labor has included more than twenty years of ministry leadership and experience with the unique circumstances involved in contemporary Christian ministry in many different churches and situations. Over many years of reading and personal reflection, sometimes brought about through the crucible of conflict, Ross found himself to be squarely seated in the historic Reformed Christian tradition, in the midst of a people who are not, a people who have lost all sense of historical mooring. As a published author of many books and many articles, Ross further engaged his language and communication skills, and trained himself in graphic and web design, to start a business. During these professional years, Ross continued to preach and write freely, apart from the demands of political correctness in order to produce a less fettered body of literature that addresses and corrects various problems that dog contemporary churches. Too many churches have become stuck in the bog of politically correctness while lusting in their corporate hearts for worldly growth and power. Ross chips away at these barnacles on the hull of Mother Kirk to free the gospel to speak again to her estranged children. He and his wife, Stephanie, live in Marietta, Ohio, and have three sons in college.
