Did Jesus Have Siblings?

October 22nd, 2008 · 5 Comments

A friend asked me this this question today… Actually she asked “Do you believe that Mary had other children?” I wrote the following reply… ————snip from email————– Short answer… yes. Actually I never gave it much thought because of this passage in Matthew 13: 54 Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in […]

38 Random Things

October 1st, 2008 · 7 Comments

I’m OK… thanks for asking. I’m just not sure how I really want to use this blog or if I want to use it. I added the “Blogging Without Obligation” badge a long time ago and adhere to its principles. I’m glad to know that many people missed my blogging… but… I’m one of those […]

Whose Religion Is Christianity?: The Gospel beyond the West

May 26th, 2008 · Comments Off on Whose Religion Is Christianity?: The Gospel beyond the West

I’m not going to link to it because it contains a lot of immature language, but a while ago I caught part of a video where someone posed the question, “If you didn’t know anything about the Bible and came across one and started reading it, would you believe it?” The guy talking was a […]

The Dying Art of Thinking

May 13th, 2008 · Comments Off on The Dying Art of Thinking

Although I’m old enough to feel old sometimes… like yesterday (after hoops and squash on Sunday)… and today (after 40k on the bike on Monday – with a cat)… I’m not probably old enough to know for sure that Ravi Zacharias is right about The Dying Art of Thinking, although I suspect that he is. […]

No… not that evolution… just changes… that’s all. For one… I’ve always shared a lot of things I like in the “Shared Items” section in the sidebar… but I think I’ll start choosing a few of those and dedicating a post to them. I don’t really have time to blog more often… to write more… […]

An Evangelical Manifesto

May 9th, 2008 · 3 Comments

As usual… the “main stream” media gets it wrong. They’ve chosen to take a political angle in reporting the recent release of An Evangelical Manifesto. Joe Carter writes at Evangelical Outpost: Indeed, every single news article focused on the political implications rather than on what it really said. Consider these headlines:      AP: Evangelical leaders […]

This is Prayer

May 7th, 2008 · Comments Off on This is Prayer

From RLP This is prayer. You do not have to speak. Do not let anyone tell you that you must speak. You may speak if you wish, or you may simply listen in the darkness. Of course… we all like it when we hear things we agree with… I spend hours listening… sometimes I hear […]

Mark Driscoll takes The Shack to the Woodshed

May 6th, 2008 · 35 Comments

I haven’t heard much about this book yet… The Shack … but it sounds like it is getting pretty popular. It is currently #10 on Amazon.com of ALL books. When a Christian book gets to be that popular… alarms should be sounding all over the place… see The Prayer of Jabez and Left Behind for […]

A nun pleads for mercy for the young man who attacked her… but he’s going to prison anyway. The story from the Baltimore Sun Here’s the reaction to her plea… Police officers waiting for other cases listened in astonishment. The defendant’s aunt and grandmother wept openly.

Suffering from A Mom’s Perspective

April 30th, 2008 · Comments Off on Suffering from A Mom’s Perspective

The “Problem of Suffering” is an old one… and IMO it will never be truly solved – truly figured out – truly understood – truly reasonable… I’ve linked to Real Live Preacher before and he often shows up in my shared items in the sidebar. But this needs more than just a link in the […]
