To Tweet or Not to Tweet – Should we tweet during a sermon? If so, how is that different from taking notes in a notebook? Here are some questions this author is asking–the kinds of questions we come up with in this digital world.

Why Imposters Love the Church – “The New Testament warns us, of course, about spiritual impostors. Sometimes these ‘wolves’ are there to introduce subtly false doctrine.

No man ever fell into error through being too watchful.

—C.H. Spurgeon
