So I haven’t written in a few days. It also seems like my pattern is to write on Mondays and Wednesday. So be it. That is my free time. This time I’m writing from home about Resolved.

Resolved is a conference hosted by the Church of John MacArthur, Grace Community Church. For the last three years (2005, 2006, 2007) Resolved has been centered around the Gospel. The Gospel has been it’s main theme.

Resolved got it’s name based on the 70 resolutions Jonathan Edwards wrote to keep his life aligned. He would read these resolutions at the end of every week, month and year. They are awesome resolutions. (You can read them here.) The conference, even though it got it’s name by Jonathan Edwards does not focus on Jonathan Edwards very much. In 2007, when I went, He got about 20 minutes of the first night if even that and the rest of the time the focus was on the God of Edwards, Jesus Christ. When I say the rest of the time, I mean the rest of the conference. He got the first 20 minutes or so of the first session and there were 10 sessions in total (including the panel discussion). 1 Friday night, 2 Saturday morning, 2 Saturday night, 2 Sunday morning, 1 Sunday night, and 2 Monday morning. Each session was at least an hour long. pfeww. Some people got saved (I am one of them), people’s theology got sharpened and a whole lot of other stuff.

Well it was a great week end. I’m looking forward to the one coming up in June 2008. If you are reading this and it’s before June 13 2008 sign up.

To get info about Resolved 2008, go to the website.

This is one of the Videos from last year.


There is another one, but you have to download it from the Resolved site. Once you get to the site, click downloads, then videos and it’s the bottom one.

This is the promo video for the 2008 Conference. It looks better on the Resolved site because it is bigger and through quicktime instead of shockwave.

These are the posts by Tim Challies based on the last Resolved Conference:

Thanks for reading,
