The crackdown in China on various Christian churches

  • Early Rain Covenant church is Reformed Presbyterian
  • We can pray for our brothers and sisters
  • The Chinese governments is still hostile to Christianity

Overcoming Sin and Temptation

  • Book by John Owen with editors Justin Taylor and Kelly Kapic
  • Very wholesome book
  • John Owen is the opposite of a perfectionist (in the doctrinal sense that we can become perfectionists)
  • One of the blessings that comes from reading this is that he hates sin intensely


  • “Anatrepo” refers to the destructive effect of false teaching on wholesome Christian living
  • 2 Tim. 2:18, Tit. 1:11
