The Teaching Ministry of Dr. Greg Bahnsen

Over the past three years, I had the privilege of studying under Dr. Greg Bahnsen at the Southern California Center for Christian Studies. Though his passing weighs heavily upon me, a sense of great rejoicing floods my soul; for Dr. Bahnsen's teaching ministry was Christ's gift of love to his Church. Through him, our Lord wooed us to the truth that sets us free from sin and death into the glorious liberty of the sons of God. He warned us against ethical relativism, cultural irrelevance, and doctrinal laxity. Dr. Bahnsen's voice was nothing less than a clarion call from the Lord of glory to remember our first love by returning to the faith of our fathers. As Dr. Bahnsen has now joined the ranks of the Church triumphant we must examine the lessons he taught us and take them to heart. This is the only response that we can make to such a wonderful gift from our Savior.
