A La Carte (1/27)

Today I’m just getting straight to the good stuff…

The Osteen Moment - Dr. Mohler: “Osteen’s statements, verbally cushioned in every way he could imagine, fell far short of the full wealth of biblical conviction. Nevertheless, he experienced what might be called the ‘Osteen Moment,’ when his entire ministry, in the public eye, came down to his answer to Piers Morgan’s forced question.”

Does Your Pastor Groan? - This article looks at these words from Hebrews and adds an important point of application: “Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.”

Not Radical Individualism - Darrin Patrick replies to John MacArthur’s critique of his book. His reply is much more mature and humble than many others who were offended by what MacArthur had said.

The Piece of Paper that Fooled Hitler - An interesting little piece of history here.

Why 3-D Doesn’t Work - This article explains why the human brain just can’t process 3-D movies. And here I thought I was the only one who saw the edges all fuzzy. (HT:JT)
