A La Carte (07/31)

Weird: At the risk of sounding like a gossip page, I’ll mention this strange story of Mel Gibson being picked up for drunk driving and then launching into an anti-semitic tirade that blamed the Jews for all the wars in the world.

End Times: Tim LaHaye, author of the “Left Behind” series, explains to “Newsweek” why he believes the conflict in the Middle East is a sign of the End Times and that Christ will return in our lifetimes.

Bible: Ingrid, over at “Slice,” has an interesting reflection on the many spiritual lessons her sister has learned from being a long distance runner.

Creed: John Samson of “Reformation Theology” discusses the importance of creeds. “In this ocean of change, there stands a bedrock that has stood the test of time. It is an ancient creed that offers a sure and safe haven, and is an anchor in a theological world adrift and deceived.”
