A La Carte (11/17)

Internet Busy-Body – The Resurgence looks at a new kind of busy-body. “Busy-body. That term is power-packed with negative associations. The “town gossip” picture in my head is not the busy-at-home lady, but instead is the woman who knows facts about other’s lives and is stocked with random trivia. Instead of working in her home and for her family, the busy-body is more concerned with the actions, thoughts, and juicy tidbits about others.”

Lost in Translation – Western product names that get lost in translation to Chinese.

A Moral Monster – Michael Horton: “Among the caricatures of Calvinism is the widespread claim that it renders God the author of evil, suffering, sin, and even the fall of humanity itself. In his recent book Against Calvinism, Roger Olson carefully distinguishes the official teaching of Calvinism from where he thinks it logically leads. However, there are over three dozen statements in his book about Calvinism leading by good and necessary logic to a deity who is a ‘moral monster,’ indistinguishable from the devil.”

Without a License – I’ve heard a lot of people wonder how Steve Jobs got away with years of driving without a license plate. This article provides an explanation.

Books on Sale – Westminster Books has a couple of new books deeply discounted.

Jeopardy – It’s been a long time since I watched Jeopardy, but rumor has it this is the first time anyone’s ever gone all-in on back-to-back daily doubles. Fun.

The heart is heated by meditation and cold truth is melted into passionate action.

    As we live out the Christian life and cooperate with the Holy Spirit through the precious means of grace, we face a number of foes, a number of enemies that mean to derail us from our pursuit of God. Of all those enemies, none may be more prevalent and none more deadly than complacency.
