This past week, I shared the following links on social media and I think they’re worth sharing here too:

Raised on Porn: The New Sex Ed

Jon Dykstra at Reformed Perspective has a review of this new documentary. He says “the story it tells is one we all need to know.” The review includes the free film itself at the bottom of the post.

Mars Hill and the Problem with Crowds

There’s a lot of buzz about the Rise and Fall of Mars Hill podcast. Akos Balogh has some good reflections on one recent episode and what we can take away from it. I’m currently listening to the series as well. I may write a post on it later — it’s certainly thought-provoking.

The Appeal of Design Arguments

Daniel Akande: “Even before delving really deep into the philosophical nuances of apologetics, I found myself firmly seeing the complex design and order of the universe as evidence for God. When I found out that atheists exist and that they do not believe the same things I do about God, I was shocked.  “How could they not believe in God?,” I would say as I looked around me, “look at how complex and intricate the entire universe is! Look at the order and the sheer awesomeness of the human body. Surely, they must be blinded! All this couldn’t have come about by chance”.”

Why I Am Still All-in With E-Books

Sorry, Tim, I can’t go with you on this one. Early in my ministry I invested a heap of clams into a e-book resource and I got burned when the resource was incompatible with the next version of Windows. Never again! I have e-books on my computer but, ironically, most of them are pdfs of old, rare books from the 16th-17th centuries. But otherwise I quite like to have physical books whose hardware and software will never go out of date.

Does the Big Bang Fit with the Bible?

Many Christians seem to assume the dramatic beginning of creation in Genesis 1 is the same thing as the Big Bang. Astrophysicist Dr. Jason Lisle explains how the two are incompatible.
