Ligonier Conference

I took Michael to the Ligonier Conference last week.  It was a blessing to both of us.  The theme was the idea of "No Compromise."  It fit well with many of our choices and their repercusions.  We are not to expect to be liked for not compromising.  In not compromising, many have lost their lives through martyrdom.  We were reminded of the saints that came before us and suffered for standing up for what is right and true.  One of the first lectures was taught by Dr. Steve Lawson,  he talked about the idea of what is true and where our source of truth is.  I am looking forward to listening to that talk again, Feet Firmly Planted in Midair.  Here is the introduction:

Most students entering college today believe that truth is relative, that what is true for you may not be true for me. In this message, Dr. Steven Lawson will look at the influence relativism has had on our culture and explore the consequences. He will explain the absurd and self-defeating nature of relativism and remind us of God’s call to stand for the unchanging absolute truth of His Word.

I realized while I was there that this yearly conference is more relevant and important to us that the homeschool conference in Orlando that we've gone to many times before.  This was my second time at the Ligonier Conference, the first was ten years ago.  Much has changed.  The location was different and better - the First Baptist Church in Orlando is a larger facility, they had a great hall for the bookstore with many more books, videos, etc.; and Ligonier Ministries has grown and is offering several new resources. 

One resource we signed up for was Ligonier Connect.  We will be using this for our bible high school curriculum now.  Here is an intro:
