I am always interested in Nancy Pearcey’s take on contemporary issues. “The Darwinian worldview implies that the cosmos is merely a vast amoral machine. It reduces the human body to a lump of matter, a collection of atoms and molecules, not intrinsically different from any other chance configuration of matter. There can be no natural law ethic because humanity has no purpose to fulfill.”
I like the sound of this series by John MacArthur. “We’re going to consider what God’s Word says about integrity—how to develop it, how to nurture it, and how to guard it from the duplicitous nature of our fallen flesh.”
This is so important: “God gives power and position for the sake of his people, not for the privilege of the leader.”
I enjoyed this little reflection on the beauty of hospitality (perhaps in part because I think I know who Elle is).
I appreciate Steven’s questions for himself, questions that help him think through whether he is boldly living for Jesus or quietly ashamed of Jesus.
From AiG: “When we think of birds, we think of flight. But it appears the Creator had other plans, too. Along with birds of the air, He made birds that dash across the grassy plains and swim gracefully under the open sea!”
“One of America’s greatest highways is barely visible from the ground. It’s only from the air that you can pick out the remains of the Oregon Trail.” This short video proves it.
Consider: Near the center of every religion is a ledger. Every religion acknowledges, on one level or another, that people do good things and bad things and every religion then maintains a tally, supposing that one day there will come a reckoning. Every religion hopes that on the day of accounting, the day of the audit, the good will outnumber or outweigh the bad.
