Yeah, I listened through it. I might blog some thoughts later, but I didn’t find it very satisfying. Ham basically demonstrated that his entire story is based on reading Genesis literally as a history. Nye laid out basically what I expected him to – that science is the be-all, end-all, and that we don’t have […]
OK, it’s been far too quiet around here. So let me ask a question for you guys who have more theological learnin’ than I do. Twice in the last couple of weeks I’ve heard people bring up Matthew 25:37-40 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed […]
Better-than-average ones are not beholden to summarizing anything in particular or a sermon series. The most awkward perfunctory ones were the ones that a leader felt needed to stay on task and the most lively ones were ones bound together by people liking to spend time together. Exactly, Jeremiah, exactly. My small group experience has […]
Former BHT patron Jared Wilson has an open letter of sorts to Mark Driscoll on TGC today, and it’s fantastic. Here’s where he drives the message home: Pastor Mark, if you’re reading this — you are losing us. Forget about the “haters.” We ain’t them. We are the ones who love you, who want to […]

I still think Jesse nailed it a few pages back when he pointed out that it’s not an either/or, it’s a both/and. Yes, teaching a man not to buy a lotto ticket and cigs every day is a good thing. At the same point, it’s also good to recognize that there are still systemic economic […]
We’re on the internet, you guys aren’t actually sitting at a bar on your laptops, are you? Are you? Now I wanna take a picture of myself tonight, drinking a beer at a bar and posting to this place on my iPad, just to set the record straight.
…what’s a Blue Christmas service?
But what I think Dave is saying is that no one who is poor should be thinking that it’s someone else’s fault and that they can’t do anything about it. I agree that no one should tell them they can’t do it. But it’s a very short step for those of us in the more […]
We don’t have a permanent caste system that prevents people from having or taking advantage of opportunities. Bill, I know you’re thinking of places like India when you say that, but we are, after all, the country where if you’re the wrong race you can get arrested for trespassing 62 times at your place of […]
