A Calvinist Revival - The NY Times (of all places) has written an article on the Reformed resurgence. (I guarantee you’ve never seen Mark Dever looking cooler than he does here.)
From 1994 - Well, though it doesn’t quite align with biblical theology, this short film still highlights the joy of life and the grief of parting.
An Oh-So-Subtle Twist - “I’ve been mulling over one phenomenon I couldn’t help but notice throughout the [Duck Dynasty] controversy, something that has been slightly bothering me.” Brian Mattson points out something well worth pondering.
Working Like Ants - I’ve been enjoying these films. “Ants! Their efforts sometimes seem insignificant in the face of tremendous challenges. But step back, look at what they accomplish, and you will discover the very handiwork of God. Working Like Ants is a series of short films telling inspiring stories of how God is using career missionaries to build His church in Uruguay.”
Church Vision Statement Generator - Silly, but fun.
Don’t Teach the Bible - Here’s a small, but important, distinction. “There is an important difference between teaching the Bible and teaching people the Bible. It is easy to be so engaged in what we teach that we forget whom we are teaching. We can even be oblivious to the fact that we are not teaching anybody.”
Indulgences for sin may come from Rome, but they never come from Zion. —C.H. Spurgeon
