Weekend A La Carte (1/28)

Don’t Take it From Me - Kathy Keller on why you shouldn’t marry an unbeliever: “Over the course of our ministry, the most common pastoral issue that Tim and I have confronted is probably marriages–either actual or proposed–between Christians and non-Christians. I have often thought how much simpler it would be if I could remove myself from the conversation and invite those already married to unbelievers do the talking to singles who are desperately trying to find a loophole that would allow them to marry someone who does not share their faith.”
Using the Web to Sell Girls - This heart-breaking article talks about how the Web is used to sell the services of girls.
The Ekranoplane - An interesting little slice of history: “In the thick of the Cold War, the Soviet Union built an immense vessel to carry their troops across the seas and into Western Europe. Equipped with nuclear warheads and able to blast across the sea at 340 mph, the Lun-class Ekranoplane; part plane, part boat, and part hovercraft — is a Ground Effect Vehicle (GEV).”
Reasons to Manuscript - Here’s an article I enjoyed. It discusses the value of manuscripting sermons.
The Other Elephant in the Room - The guys at Wretched Radio have done a really good job here of pointing out the other elephant in the room.
Blessed be God, our calamities are matters of time, but our safety is a matter of eternity. —C.H. Spurgeon
