The Theology of Adoption at !deacamp

by Dan Cruver Published Feb 23, 2011

Asking me to talk about the theology of adoption and its implications for the global orphan crisis is like asking a lion if he’d like to eat some red meat. I don’t even have to consider whether or not it’s something I’d “like” to do. So, when Mike Rusch asked me to lead a workshop […]

The Abba Father Cry

by Dan Cruver Published Feb 16, 2011

“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, ‘Abba! Father!’” […]

One of the questions I am frequently asked is “what can we do to solve the global orphan crisis?” My answer to that question used to be long and involved. Now it’s simple: give priority to the “Who” question (Who is the Trinity? Who is Jesus? Who is the Spirit of adoption? etc) over the […]

Read Kevin’s entire post.

A Confession: I’m Lousy at Denying Myself

by Dan Cruver Published Feb 4, 2011

A personal confession: I have found that I cannot deny myself, take up my cross, and follow Jesus (Matthew 16:24) without the gospel. It’s not a “cannot” like “I cannot eat ice cream because I’m on a diet.” No, it is more like “I cannot leap tall buildings in a single bound.” It’s an impossible cannot, […]
