A La Carte (6/6)

Friday June 6, 2008 A Revival of Violence
In case you needed further proof that the “revival” in Lakeland Florida bears no resemblance to true revival, take a look at this video. I’m pretty sure I don’t remember Jonathan Edwards kicking old ladies in the face under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. But I could be wrong.
And Speaking of the Lakeland Revival…
…Melinda at the Stand to Reason blog shares some wisdom from Greg Koukl based on his comments about the Toronto Blessing. “Even if the Holy Spirit is in this, so what?…No where that I know of does the Scripture tell Christians to look forward in time to be obedient to some new movement of the Spirit that is yet to be revealed. Instead, it says to stay faithful to what has already been handed down to us.”
The Audacity of Death
Another good article about Obama’s “reproductive justice.”
