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.

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. 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.

In the previous article, we examined the difference between the Reformed and Dispensational approach to Biblical counseling concerning the word nouthetic (or admonish).

However, it was too narrow because it did not cover [...]
