I’ve got nothing to say today, so we’ll just get straight to those links…

$5 Friday – Ligonier is having their weekly $5 Friday event today, and R.C. Sproul’s commentary on John is one of the items that you can buy, today only, for just $5.

The Christmas Tree Industry – Just in case you’ve ever wondered what the industry is all about.

Put the Seat Down – Over at Discerning Reader, Mark Tubbs offers a recommendation for a good book: “Almost everything you wish you had known about serving your wife as a biblical man before you got married, in less than 125 pages.”

Facebook Photos – A couple of days ago Steve Cornell offered up social media suggestions for pastors. Today he follows up with an interesting post dealing with Facebook photos.

Rallying to restore God – It was interesting to see Nancy Pearcey’s name appear in the Economist as “America’s pre-eminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual.”

Bob Feller – I enjoyed reading this article on the life of baseball great Bob Feller.

2010 in Photos – Boston.com wraps up their look at 2010 through photos.

People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.

—D.A. Carson

    Redeeming Sex in Marriage

    Surely few things in this world are more mysterious than sex. Surely few things give such clear evidence that there must be more to them than the sum of their parts. On the one level, sex is a simple biological function that exists to populate the earth with human beings. On the other level, it…
