Courageous Christianity? – The film Courageous has received near-unanimous praise in the Christian world. White Horse Inn has a more critical take. “Art being reduced as a vehicle for sermonizing is problematic enough, but even more so is the type of sermon being preached. The emphasis on personal morality and simplistic transformation turn this film into a superficial lecture rather than a robust exploration of life as a Christian father. Our personal piety, our self-improvement, and our ‘courage’ forms the fabric of the story.”

Social Media Statistics – You say you can’t get anything done these days? Maybe this is why.

Confessionalism, Boundaries and Discipline – D.A. Carson and Tim Keller have penned a long article that (essentially) addresses The Gospel Coalition and The Elephant Room.

Secret Church – David Platt has an upcoming Secret Church simulcast that may be of interest to you.

Mohler on Mormonism – Dr. Mohler comments on Mormonism now that it is becoming a political consideration. “There are numerous ways to frame these questions wrongly. Our responsibility as evangelical Christians is to think seriously and biblically about these issues.”

Man’s will is free to follow his inclinations, but fallen man’s inclinations are always and invariably away from God.

—R.C. Sproul
