Paul Helm on Augustine’s City of God

March 21, 2017

Two cities, two peoples. Here

So the people of God are physically within Babylon, and are also inhabitants of Babylon. There is friction between the two. The horizon of Babylon is this life, that of the members of the city of God, God’s eternity, and the coming of the seventh age. Babylon is governed by cupiditas, selfishness, the city of God by caritas, love of God and neighbour, the life of which will culminate in the age of glory, Jerusalem the golden.

Central Africa Baptist College

February 27, 2017

Last night Ben Straub reported to Fourth Baptist Church. Ben holds both a M.Div. and a Th.M. from Central Seminary. For the past several years he and his wife Amy have been ministering in Kitwe, Zambia. Ben went to teach at Central Africa Baptist College; he is now the academic dean of the college.

CABC started out offering a bachelor’s degree in Bible. It has subsequently added a master’s degree in ministry and a bachelor’s degree in education. The school is credentialed to certify graduates who teach in Zambian schools. It is also the locus of certification for chaplaincy in the Zambian military and prison systems.

Ben is the son of Jeff Straub and Amy is the daughter of Roy Beacham, both on the faculty of Central Seminary. That’s both effect and cause of the fact that worldwide missions is at the heart of Central Seminary.
