This past week, I shared the following links on social media and I think they’re worth sharing here too:
The Reformed Church in the United States
The RCUS has a new website and I’m impressed. I especially appreciate the outward-looking, church-planting perspective that’s right up front.
Mud, Leeches, and Stunning Beauty in Tasmania
I’ve got my summer vacation coming up here shortly. This is going to be my epic summer adventure: the South Coast Track down here in Tassie. If you want to read more, check out this detailed website. If I’m not back here in late January, you’ll know where to go looking…
Children continue to be sacrificed to our civilization’s most perverse addiction: pornography
Jonathon Van Maren’s article was published earlier in the week, before singer Billie Eilish broke her silence on how porn has been a destructive influence in her life. If you don’t think this is a problem in our churches, you may be hearing from your proctologist about the discovery of your head. Do you need help with a porn problem? Click here now.
Was The Rise And Fall Of Mars Hill Podcast Series A Mistake?
I agree with Dr. Scott Clark here. Journalism explores the how and why of not only the present, but also the past. With some caveats (like those of Scott), I think this podcast series has done a good service. Sure, it could’ve been better, but a lot of what it did say was insightful.
Paul and His Roman Constitutional Rights
Chris Gordon: “We should remember what we are ultimately fighting for. The Christian life is not about desperately holding onto our rights and freedoms, as much as we enjoy and desire them. In all of our conduct in this present evil age, our minds should be set on the things above, living by faith believing that we have a better inheritance that awaits us.”
Bill C-4: the Conservatives did this to Canada
Here’s Jon Dykstra’s postmortem on the C-4 fiasco spearheaded by the Opposition party in Canada. I’ve long ago abandoned any hope for the Conservative Party of Canada. While some individual MPs are men and women of principled Christian integrity, the party itself is hopelessly compromised by a lust for power. I haven’t voted for them in years.
