History: Rick has delved into an old history book and discovered the truth behind the Protestant Reformation.

Du Jour: C.J. Mahaney has a winning article over at Together for the Gospel’s blog. Having heard about the reading and studying habits of men like Dever, Mohler and Duncan he says, “…I find it both inspiring and discouraging. I am inspired to read more and discouraged as I consider how little I’ve read and how much there is to read” But C.J. is here for the rest of us, “representing all those who are just average.

Tribute: Doug McHone has posted a stirring tribute to a pillar of his church. “Death has claimed a great man of the faith this morning, but the sting of death is no more. It is a real paradox that we can rejoice when one has ended their labors to be with the Lord, and yet be sorrowful to witness the wages of sin in one that we love.”

Health: Yahoo gives us the scoop on toilet seat covers. “Because toilet seats are not major culprits in spreading disease, paper or plastic seat covers offer little more than peace of mind.” I think the peace of mind is worth it.

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
