A La Carte (4/23)

Young, Restless, Reformed? – Collin Hansen, has written an article for CT that he titled Piper, Warren and the Perils of Movement Building. Michael Horton has written a response, of sorts, in which he calls us to understand the word Reformed within its historical context and proposes an alternative.

Can You Name Them? – Randy Alcorn on heroes and celebrities: “Being a hero is something entirely different than being a celebrity. Fame is one thing. Virtue is another. The two aren’t even remotely related. In fact, the more famous you become the harder it is to cultivate and retain virtue. Celebrities are just people with good looks, talent, money, and the ability to draw attention to themselves. Heroes are people who stand courageously for what is right, often against the tide of public opinion, and at great cost to themselves.”

Struggling with Time-Debt – This article is worth a read. “I recently found myself, late one night, staring at my computer screen with a sinking, hard feeling in my stomach and a bad taste in my mouth. A familiar bad taste. The taste of debt. But I wasn’t looking at my bank statement–I was looking at my calendar.”
