Wikipedia Scrubs Obama Eligibility Questions
This article at WND draws interesting comparisons between Obama’s profile at Wikipedia and George W. Bush’s. Guess which one is not allowed to have anything negative attached to it.


The Canadian Solution
Newsweek explains why Canadian banks are not failing and have no need of bailouts. “Canadian banks are typically leveraged at 18 to 1–compared with U.S. banks at 26 to 1 and European banks at a frightening 61 to 1. Partly this reflects Canada’s more risk-averse business culture, but it is also a product of old-fashioned rules on banking.”


Can an Elder Be Divorced
I love “Monday with Mounce.” This week he looks to 1 Timothy 3:2 to ask whether an elder may be previously divorced.


Interview with William Young
Here is an interview with The Shack author William Young. In it he flatly denies the substitutionary atonement (which was one of the questions many people had as they read the book).


Kyle Rae Sweet: 1956 – 2009
Long-time Christian music fans may be interested in this sad news. “Kyle Rae Sweet [Wife of Michael Sweet] has passed on and is now at peace with her Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ…”


Spring ESV Sale
Here’s one for the Canadians. Family Christian Bookstore in Burlington is offering sale prices on a selection of ESV Bibles. Click to read their flyer (PDF format).


Preachin’ Dirty
Phil Johnson begins to answer critics of his talk dealing with “Sound Doctrine, Sound Words.” To this point it seems a very grace-filled discussion.


Tait to Front Newsboys
The rumor mill was abuzz with this news; it has now been confirmed. Michael Tait is the new lead vocalist for the Newboys, replacing Peter Furler. If that means nothing to you, you probably don’t listen to Christian music.

  • Not a Life of Ease

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…

    The Way You Walk

    You can tell a lot about people by the way they walk, can’t you? You can tell a lot about their physical health, their emotional state, and perhaps even their spiritual condition. You can often tell at a glance whether they are healthy or ill, joyful or sorrowful, delighting or despondent. Consider a company of…
