Lethargy: I apologize that there was no A La Carte yesterday. My parents decided to swing by for a weekend visit and since I only see them a few times a year, I thought it would be best to spend as much time with them as possible. Having done so, I am confident that I made the right decision.
Politics: The Thirsty Theologian, who has been known to quench his thirst with beverages a little more potent than water, takes issue with the SBC’s decision on alcohol. “Why did God not providentially place a couple of Southern Baptists in Cana of Galilee on that fateful wedding day to prevent his son from doing such a foolish thing?”
Family: Maryanne has an interesting article on what happened when she forced her kids to stop watching movies. “I will go to my grave believing that television and movies are an area of the culture that are Satan-owned. There is a level of darkness in Disney movies that children like Anna (very imaginative, creative, dreamy) should not be exposed to.”
Theology: Mark Dever posted a must read article at Together for the Gospel. He says, “the most basic practical division among evangelical pastors today may be between those who pursue faithfulness and assume relevance and those who pursue relevance and assume faithfulness.” He blew my mind with that statement which is just oh so true. Well done Dr. Dever!
