Theology Network is changing

UCCF continues to be committed to equipping today's Theology students to live and speak for Jesus in their chosen field of study.
Theology Network is now a part of UCCF's Leadership Network, so you can now find our resources at www.uccfleadershipnetwork.org/theology. As a result, this site will be taken down at the beginning of 2019.


In the mid-1500’s the Reformer Martin Luther and his wife Katie became famous for their hospitality. In their home, a big old ex-monastery called “The Black Cloister”, they hosted students, colleagues and friends for meals. With good company, good food, and Katie’s home-brewed beer (and their children tearing about after the dog), Luther and his friends discussed theology, life, and everything - a regular gathering which was recorded as his “Table Talk”.

In the spirit of such refined pursuits, Theology Network is proud to present our very own Table Talk. We’re taking time to settle down by the fire with key evangelical leaders and chat about issues that matter - and we’re releasing it as a podcast so you can download our conversations direct to your ipod. So come and join us at the table - there’s plenty of room!

"But from this day forward I will bless you!" Haggai 2:19 It's so easy to slip into the performance mindset rather than His ludicrous grace. Luther exhorting Leo X to sin is particularly telling. Ha ha, to think that I could ever earn favour with God by doing anything! When we preach the gospel should we expect to be called antinomians? I think so, Paul was. My heart was warmed, but with John Owen, when recovering from sinning I think we should go to Christ crucified to see the horror and sinfulness of that sin as well as receive a fresh pardon - the mortification of it is more effective plus the love and grace of God is magnified. Gutsy guilt rather than just I want to feel better again! We must examine our motives. Also, how could an unbeliever say “For in my inner being I delight in God’s law?” in Romans 7. The use of the present tense is too compelling for me. Maybe it’s because it was in that chapter that I first gained a distinct sense of assurance when I read verse 24. Stott’s ‘Men Made New’ was read shortly after. I will read MLJ and TV with a teachable spirit. I hope I haven’t slipped again! He he.
