A La Carte (3/24)

God is good. Despite my trip to Orlando (for the Ligonier Ministries National Conference) coinciding with what is surely the worst late-March snowstorm we’ve seen for many years, Aileen and I made it safely and only a little bit late. The question now is whether we can adjust to an 80 or 90 degree temperature swing between there and here.

Here are a few links before we head to the conference.

Two Cents and Not a Penny More – Greg Gilbert waited a lot time to write about the Rob Bell situation, but his few comments are well worth the read. Meanwhile, Albert Mohler responds to an article in which Brian McLaren defends Bell and his book.

From Hymns to Hip Hop – Anthony Bradley: “If you are looking for theologically saturated Christian music that has the greatest potential for widespread appeal, your best option may be Christian hip-hop. Because of its form—a high volume of words with little repetition—hip-hop may provide one of the best modes of music to convey propositional truths and doctrinal content that at the same time connects to a younger generation.”

Nominal Christians – Gene Edward Veith writes about an interesting study regarding nominal Christians.

Christian Parallel Universe – “I think there are parallel universes. At least, it seems that way to my eyes. What I mean is that Christians in the USA seem to have created a universe parallel to the secular one. There are more obvious versions of this — the Christian Yellow Pages being foremost in my mind — but there are subtle versions too.”

Talking Tech with Trevin – Trevin and I recently had a conversation about technology and about my new book. It may prove somewhat interesting to you.

Beautiful Minds – This is a fascinating video about a man with a disability and a gift.

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
