The Hymn Sing – To celebrate a successful Kickstarter campaign that has funded a new album, Indelible Grace has released their live album The Hymn Sing on NoiseTrade. It’s there for free or for a donation of any amount.

Polygamy in the BibleThe Briefing has an article about polygamy in the Old Testament. “Sure, the narrators never pause to say, ‘Oh by the way, please, don’t be a polygamist.’ But why should they? The stories make the point all by themselves…”

As a Child – I enjoyed reading the transcript of this conversation between Mary Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss (there’s also audio if you prefer). They talk about God’s revelation of himself as Father.

Christianity Explored for Youth – CY, the youth edition of Christianity Explored, is on sale. At least, the sample pack is on sale if you’d like to get a feel for it. We’ve used it at our church and have found it a helpful resource.

What Comes Naturally – Greg Koukl looks at homosexuality in the animal kingdom to answer those who say this proves that homosexual behavior is natural.

Racial Justice and the Gospel – Russell Moore explains why racial justice is a gospel issue. “One of my earliest memories is of a substitute Sunday school teacher in my Southern Baptist church chastening me for putting a coin in my mouth. ‘That’s filthy,’ she said. ‘Why, you don’t know if a colored man might have held that.’”

As Long As It’s Healthy – Food for thought from John Knight: “Every couple experiencing pregnancy gets this question: do you want a boy or a girl? Many will respond this way, ‘we don’t care, just as long as it’s healthy.’ But ‘healthy’ exists on a spectrum of possibilities just like disability. And that spectrum is becoming narrower with every year that passes.”

The Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from the Bible.

—D.L. Moody

  • Tell Me

    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…
