Weekend A La Carte (9/3)

Pull the Plug! - Randy Alcorn: “Here is a sad and bewildering commentary that captures in one example the utter inefficiency and sometimes craziness of a government that talks about controlling spending, but never seems to actually do it even when it would appear so easy—as in JUST PULL THE PLUG!”

Sola Scriptura - Canadians (or Americans who live close to the border) may want to take a look at this year’s Sola Scriptura conferences. They will be held in London, Toronto and Vancouver.

The O.T. on One Page - Here is David Murray’s attempt to sum up the contents of the Old Testament books on one page.

The Book of Revelation - John Dyer’s article on the writing of Revelation is well worth the read: “John didn’t just look up passages that supported his point. And he didn’t memorize a few powerful proof texts to argue and impress. He knew the Scriptures. He lived the Scriptures. The words of God were a part of him that couldn’t help but flow from his pen.”

There Never Was Such Another - Kevin DeYoung was was moved by this touching description of Charles Hodge with his fifty-one year-old dying wife Sarah. You probably will be too.

The Speed of Information - Funny and pretty much true.

Christ is so in love with holiness, that at the price of his blood he will buy it for us. —John Flavel
