Rev. Dr. Carl Trueman (professor of historical theology and church history), and Rev. Dr. Gregory Beale (professor of New Testament and biblical theology) will be the speakers at this year's Clarus Conference! The theme will be "Scripture: God Speaks," and it will be held at Desert Springs Church in Albuquerque, NM, April 29-May 1.
The serpent slyly asked Eve in the Garden, "Did God actually say...?" (Genesis 3:1). Today, as much as ever, God's people must respond to this satanic pessimism with a hearty confidence in the truth, beauty, and goodness of God's words to us.
"God has graciously disclosed his existence and power in the created order, and has supremely revealed himself to fallen human beings in the person of his Son, the incarnate Word. Moreover, this God is a speaking God who by his Spirit has graciously disclosed himself in human words... The Bible is to be believed, as God's instruction, in all that it teaches; obeyed, as God's command, in all that it requires; and trusted, as God's pledge, in all that it promises. As God's people hear, believe, and do the Word, they are equipped as disciples of Christ and witnesses to the gospel."
To that end, we plan to devote a full weekend at the end of April to this theme, "Scripture: God Speaks." Two able, godly scholars, G. K. Beale and Carl Trueman, will join us to help us consider the centrality, authority, and clarity of God's Word and its place in the Christian life (meditation), in the church (preached), and in marriage.
Indeed, our God has spoken...and we intend to listen and heed!
So we hope you will join us, April 29 - May 1, to ponder and feed upon God's words, sing His truth, and meet some new friends.
