A La Carte (05/19)

Friday May 19, 2006

Award: Apparently I’ve been awarded something called a “Bologna Badge.” I can’t say I’ve ever heard of this particular award, but I’m sure it’s prestigious. More here.

Gospel: Ligon Duncan posted a roundup of quotes about the gospel that are sure to bless you. Here is a favorite: “When we preach Christ crucified, we have no reason to stammer, or stutter, or hesitate, or apologize; there is nothing in the gospel of which we have any cause to be ashamed.”

Women: Carolyn McCulley has an interesting article entitled “Sex Trafficking: A Death Sentence by AIDS.” “In some sections of India, girls as young as 12 are “married” to a Hindu god and forced into temple prostitution for at least the next 20 years.”

Theology: Steve Camp has uploaded a very good article (part 1) of a tw-part series written by Lars Larson and dealing with biblical discernment.
