This past week, I shared the following links on social media and I think they’re worth sharing here too:
Over the last few weeks, there’s been an online dust-up regarding some of the leading figures pushing “Christian Nationalism.” Stephen Wolfe’s podcast co-host Thomas Achord was caught out posting racist tweets under a pseudonym (he used the term “chimp” — seriously!). Jonathan Tomes gives a good synopsis and postmortem.
The popularity of Crimond as a tune for Psalm 23 is fairly recent. I had no idea!
I agree with a lot of what Kevin DeYoung writes here about Stephen Wolfe’s book, The Case for Christian Nationalism. My own review (to be published in Clarion and then on my blog) highlights other issues, including blasphemy and contradiction of the Reformed confessions. It is a seriously flawed book.
Tim Challies lost his son Nick in 2020. He’s often been asked: “Lately many people are suddenly dying including young athletes on the field. Many doctors are coming out and realizing it is due to the Covid vaccine. Did Nick get the Covid vaccine or have to take it for school?” His response helpful addresses the often insensitive way people interact with those grieving the loss of a loved one.
Reuben Bredenhof asks: “So what is the place of character weakness in the Christian life? Can we overcome these through a more valiant effort? Can I even change?”
