I guess I’m just filing this under the “discussions I thought we’d not be having in 2013″ category — At least not in semi-respected church circles. That said, the people involved with Vision Forum have a lot bigger issues to worry about at this point.
I’m not even that interested in an apology or a damage-control PR visit. A few thousand people in the middle of flyover country (and not even the most storied reservation in the state) isn’t where you go to make your point known — it’s where you go to identify with the poor and neglected. He […]
If and when Pope Francis makes his way to the US, I hope he skips the big cities and makes his way out to the native reservations in the middle of the country. They kind of need it now: ST. PAUL, Minn. — Law enforcement authorities on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota have […]
So to recap, John MacArthur thinks all non-cessionists are deceived — because if you believe in modern healing you’re opening the door to the hucksters. Mark Driscoll implies cessionists aren’t true Trinitarians — because that gets headlines. Glad we had this conversation. From what Brian excerpted and Challies’s live blogging, I was amazed at how […]
You know this Strange Fire thing is becoming a spectacle (despite the always graceful, humble, and kind Joni Eareckson Tada giving a wonderful, non-condemning speech) when Mark Driscoll decides to crash it and hand out his book that presents a non-cessionist viewpoint. Everything’s gotta be a circus, it seems. As for muckraking and discernment, I […]
I went looking through their pictures of Church History. Somehow my college classes on church history left out Joseph Smith’s Last Dream and Nauvoo Remembered. Isn’t that where Anikin won the Pod Race?
From USA Today’s review: In 2009, four months after narrowly defeating Barack Obama, President John McCain dies from a cerebral aneurysm. Palin, unable to complete a coherent sentence that hasn’t been written for her, becomes president. Fox News merges with the Faith & Freedom Coalition, the political arm of conservative Christians, to form Fox Faith […]
I recently talked to someone who grew up on the Fundamentalist side of Evangelicalism who had rarely heard the Apostles Creed before moving to a more liturgical church. Growing up where I had to memorize it in church before I was 10, that kind of surprised me. I’m guessing the Nicene Creed is equally foreign […]
Jake, you know the coverage of the Pope’s comments is bad when NARAL thinks he threw them a bone. Yesterday we had a Pakistani missionary sitting in the service as the pastor invited people to pray for All Saints Church and Christians in Pakistan. In addition, our pastor has been to the Westgate Mall in […]
I guess one of these days I will be dragged into watching Breaking Bad. My pastor obliquely referenced it last week and since it’s ending I might take a look at it after it’s all said and done. I know it’s good, but it just sounds so depressing. My interests are a little peppier and […]
