Don’t Miss These

A succinct article by Harry Jackson explaining how truth has been isolated and betrayed…

eTeacher’s online effort to bring Biblical Hebrew into your home. They inaccurately report that they are the only ones providing Hebrew online with flexibility. Piedmont Baptist College & Graduate School have been offering Hebrew online for almost two years.

Bob Kauflin has to be the most gifted theological musician thus far in the 21st century. His extraordinary knowledge of God’s word and music enables him to equip hundreds if not thousands of music leaders with wisdom that flows from above. If you lead music be sure you read and listen to Kauflin’s Biblical insight. Some of his posts include (Preparing the Next Generation of Musicians, Top Ten Ways to Write Bad Worship Songs, What Does a Worship Leader Do?) Bob has a recent book out that I look forward to reading Worship Matters.

David Goldberg is trying to offer something about the Death of God in his article Goodbye to the Supernatural God. Sounds awfully familiar to Nietzsche’s hypothesis…hello nihilism.

“spread the wealth”  hmm A Professor of Economics uses a simple story to explain the result..check it out.

Stories

I though you may find a few links below intriguing…

  • An article suggesting that a literal interpretation of the Bible results in a Dispensational prophetic position with the source coming from ReligiousTolerance.
  • Glad to see Rick Warren support CA’s Proposition 8…don’t miss Al Mohler discussing the linguistic effect of gay marriage

Enjoy!

Rick Warren’s Daughter-In-Law

Rick Warren’s son and daughter-in-law have been facing some harrowing medical emergencies. This article in the OC Register gives you a glimpse into Rick’s personal email/journal when facing a difficult personal medical problem in your family. Really great to see him prayfully depending on the Lord and His eternal words.

LIFE IS short

hand holding a stop watch

Pondering the shortness of life…

* 70 years = 840 months
*840 months (30 days / month) = 25,200 days
*25,200 days = 604,800 hours
*604,800 hours = 36,288,000 minutes
*36,288,000 minutes = 2,177,280,000 seconds

Factor in sleep… 201,600 out of 604,800 hours (based on 8 hours of
sleep).

Life is BRIEF

I didn’t calculate leap years into the formula above.

Abortion (Miller vs George)

Two men with two different views on Barack Obama’s position on abortion. They don’t agree! Read both arguements–both are well worth the read. Who presents the best evidence?

Donald Miller – Author of Blue Like Jazz suggests Obama is rethinking his stance on abortion and that his less abortions promotion is better than no plan by the GOP. Read the article here...

Robert P. George – McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence; Director, James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University suggests Obama’s voting record on abortion happens to be the most liberal. George uses very strong words like “delusional, extremism, it can’t get worse but it does” in his article. Read the article here

You can finish these two articles up with a less than popular article by Al Mohler whose stellar mind earns the attention of Christians and non-Christians across the US and the World. Read the article here

Do you find it interesting that humans like to change language?
We change adultery to affair.
We change murder to abortion.

Does it make it easier for our mind to cuddle when we change the words?

ELIMINATION OF DISSENT

A camera catches the essence of the Obama party. I am definitely not sold on McCain & Palin, but I can assure you I want join intolerant leftists who carry nooses for anyone who refuses to agree with them. If this is the change that Barack Obama believes in this change will horrify our culture. To think that you scream, boo, jeer, and shoot people the classless middle finger for not taking your view? That’s INTELLIGENT! Why should I want to jump on their bandwagon? If you want to see a lapse of civility and the unveiled venom behind many in Obama’s party watch below.

The Trinity Debate

In a recent conversation that Mark Driscoll had with J.I. Packer, Driscoll asked a wise question, “which theological issues would you commend young Christian leaders to study in order to be ready for the next fifty years.” Packer suggested four areas that young Christian leaders needed to devote their energy towards, but I only want to highlight one: Trinity.

Packer said, “the fullness of the doctrine of the Trinity is not completely appreciated as it should be. The result, he said, is that some Christians have only a deep understanding of Jesus or the Holy Spirit so that they are guilty of what he called “Jesus-olatry” or “Holy Spirit-olatry” rather than a full love and worshipful appreciation of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit.”

Packer’s insistence that we sharpen the faculties of our mind in the arena of the Trinity seems to be providential taking into consideration the debate on the campus of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) last night, which responded to the question, ““Do relations of authority and submission exist eternally among the Persons of the Godhead?”. Andy Naselli live-blogged the intense-somewhat sarcastsic debate, which you can read here.
