A La Carte (7/24)

Thursday July 24, 2008 T4G Slideshow
Together for the Gospel has released a great slideshow from the T4G 08 Conference. It is set to “How Sweet and Awful Is the Place.”
The Spirit of Revival
At the Ligonier blog we’re serializing a great bit of writing from R.C. Sproul. He writes about revival and how we can distinguish between true and false revival. It is a great read when so much talk about supposed revival is in the news.
Faith-Based Currency
A good article by Ron Paul addresses fiat currency. “Some are blaming the recent shakeup in the markets to “whining” or financial fear-mongering, which misses the whole point. History has shown that fiat money, or “faith-based currency” always fails, because when governments claim this power, they always behave irresponsibly.”
Rick Warren’s Presidential Forum
Rick Warren is defending his decision to hold a Presidential forum at his church despite the fact that it is co-sponsored by “the liberal social justice group Faith in Public Life, whose board president is Meg Riley, a Unitarian Universalist minister who previously ran the denomination’s homosexual advocacy office.”
Watching Joel Osteen
Sean Michael Lucas gives some good reflections on what makes Joel Osteen so popular.
