Conference Review Teaser

First, notice the time of this posting. That's really when I posted it. NEED SLEEP!!! So I’m really too busy to have a blog. I want, so badly, to give you something to read regarding the Shepherds’ Conference but I just don’t seem to have the time. I put together this teaser so I could draw you in for the upcoming review of the first and the sixth general sessions. John MacArthur taught through the book of Jude and I call my work “The Jude Review.” If you want to be prepared for "The Jude Review", you could read the book of Jude. It’s short. Anyway, below is my teaser to the Conference Reviews that will hopefully start over the weekend. The already 2 page Word document I call “The Jude Review” is still in the rough draft stage. I will have my beautiful wife read and correct it so it is grammatically correct. For now, it’s all me and my mistakes. Here’s the teaser. Some General Information about the Conference The Shepherd’s Conference was held at Grace Community Church of Sun Valley in Southern California. Nearly 3,500 men attended the conference. We were encouraged by the teaching of such great men of the faith as John MacArthur, Al Mohler, and R.C. Sproul. These men, along with other pastors from Grace, and professors from The Master's Seminary, taught seminars to help pastor (shepherds) gain confidence to continue to fight for truth in teaching the Word of God. I pray that, as a result of this conference, God is glorified and His kingdom is furthered by pastors committing themselves to the truth; the Word of God. I hope that the shepherds at this conference will be, as 2 Tim 2:15 tells us, “approved, worker‘s’…not ashamed…rightly handling the word of truth.” I also want to fight for the truth. And I want to be used by God. I want to be an approved workman, who is not ashamed, who rightly divides the word of truth as it is the only authority on earth.
