1024 Project

The 1024 Project is a collaboration of Christian leaders, based on Hebrews 10:24 – “and let us consider ways to stimulate one another to love and good deeds.” One way we can accomplish this mandate is by working together to provide encouraging and edifying resources on issues that arise in the lives of individual believers and in corporate church life.

The 1024 Project is a clearinghouse of teaching, resources and information from likeminded leaders of Biblical churches, who are committed to Two Key Distinctives. Pastor Daniel Goepfrich is a Founding Member and contributor to the 1024 Project.

#1 The Supremacy of His Glory It’s simple: It is all about Him, end of story. Ephesians 1 illustrates how Father (1:6), Son (1:12), and Holy Spirit (1:14) each work together for the glory of God. His activities serve His own purpose of expressing His character, demonstrating His glory. If we will understand this simple, [...]

Image: Tom Vanderwell Here is a piece which originally belonged in some correspondence I had with a covenant theologian.  I have added a few things, but I think it makes a decent stand-alone article.  Some amillennialists think that the original hearers of Ezekiel couldn’t comprehend a future glorious kingdom where Israel is regenerate, and Messiah [...]

It is doubtful if there has been any other circle of men [dispensationalists] who have done more by their influence in preaching, teaching and writing to promote a love for Bible study, a hunger for the deeper Christian life, a passion for evangelism and zeal for missions in the history of American Christianity. —Dispensationalist Critic, [...]

How we interpret the Bible matters. In fact, biblical hermeneutics have an incredible relevance for the Christian life. As God’s word brings us a much more detailed knowledge of our Creator (2 Tim 3:16-17, 2 Pet 1:20-21), we learn through this word of our failure (Rom 3:23), our separation from Him (Eph 2:3, 12), and [...]

Artifical Intelligence has been receiving much attention in recent months. The first inklings of artificial intelligence were seen in 2011 when a supercomputer named “Watson” in the game show Jeopardy beat Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, two of the greatest Jeopardy players to date. Ever since this epic win by “Watson” the topic of artificial intelligence has [...]

Introduction In the foreword of the book Psychobabble, John MacArthur wrote, We who know the Lord, who have His Word, and who are indwelt by His Spirit are entrusted with too many heavenly resources to be mucking about with the utterly bankrupt wisdom that is the best this world has to offer. We err seriously [...]

Dispensationalism: Product of Consistent Application of Reformation Hermeneutic One important thing that the Reformers lacked was the consistent application of their own hermeneutic principles.  When this is said, it must be noted that it is a blanket statement with many exceptions.  However, the negative influence of Augustinian theology was felt in several ways one of [...]

Ours is a trivial age, and the church has been deeply affected by this pervasive triviality….Ours is a self-absorbed, human-centered age, and the church has become, sadly, even treasonably self-centered.[1] While God wants to give us everlasting life, we settle for trivial satisfaction of superficial needs that are to a large extent created within us [...]

The Dark Age and the Medieval Period (c. 300-1517 AD) Although literal, normal interpretation did exist during this period, the prevailing form of interpretation was that of allegorical, which was strictly employed by the Roman Catholic Church. The Roman church’s interpretive method is described well in the following: …‘The literal sense is that which the [...]
