Three biblical questions for fans of The Chosen
Todd Friel has “three potent reasons to consider before you watch” this super popular Christian TV series.
From silence to complexification to capitulation
Kevin DeYoung notes that when orthodox Christian leaders and organizations capitulate on issues like sexuality or abortion, it’s rarely a surprise, as there “a series of familiar steps” that preceded their turning away. First, there is silence – they stop talking about the sin. Then when they do talk about it, it is only to speak about how very complicated the issue is.

On “virtual” preaching and a virtual church
After COVID lockdowns made livestream church services common, a related question has come up. When a pastor is on vacation, or a church is vacant, might they play a recorded video sermon rather than have one of their elders read a sermon? In the article linked above, Dr. Wes Bredenhof expresses his concerns, and specifically how in our current culture having a “virtual pastor” might lead some to wonder why they can’t just be a “virtual congregation.”
