Is Anxiety Really Sin? - Julian begins an article on anxiety in this way: “ ‘Stress’ is not a biblical word. ‘Worry’ and ‘anxiety’ are. And they are sins. That’s the thought that started a conversation the other day. Can we actually say that something like anxiety is sin? What makes it a sin? Isn’t it just a weakness to be delivered from? Or, rather, shouldn’t we conceive of it as a mental illness?”

Ask John Piper - Desiring God relaunches the feature “Ask Pastor John.” “The point of the podcast is to connect more frequently with Pastor John throughout the week and hear his thoughts on the Bible, theology, ministry, and leadership, as well as his answers to theological questions and reactions to current events.”

We stand in the present but dwell on the past in order that we can be steadfast for the future. —Dale Ralph Davis
