A La Carte (10/18)

Monday with Mounce - Wouldn’t it be great to have mastered Greek? “One of the beauties of knowing Greek is that you get to see nuances of meaning that are often lost in translation. It’s not that the translators don’t see the meaning; it’s that they simply cannot bring it over smoothly into English.”

Top 10 Preaching Mistakes - David Murray counts down the top ten mistakes preachers make (and especially if they are new).

Are Evangelicals Dangerous? - Dr. Mohler wrote an article for CNN and it attracted a ridiculous amount of attention (not too surprisingly). “By mid-Monday, there were 75 pages of comments at the site. That tells us something about the volatility of the question.”

Surrender - I’ve been enjoying this new EP by Nate Fancher. Several of the songs offer a unique sound that I quite like.

The Debate - Trevin Wax shares how he wishes the debate on sexuality could go, just once, when a Christian pastor ends up to television discussing the issue.

Alas, if our children lose the crown of life, it will be but a small consolation that they have won the laurels of literature or art. —Charles Spurgeon
