Problems with Unconditional Forgiveness – “While automatic forgiveness sounds like an antidote to bitterness, this is not the case. Those who try and simply dismiss grave offenses, apart from resting in the justice of God, often encounter emotional and theological problems. Here is an incomplete list of problems that sometimes arise from unconditional forgiveness.”

Nourish and Cherish – Rick Thomas takes a look at Ephesians 5 and what it means for a husband to nourish and cherish his wife.

Don’t Waste Your Vacation – Trevin Wax on a book I enjoyed a lot: “Last week, I interviewed Steve Dewitt about his book Eyes Wide Open: Enjoying God in Everything. With his permission, I am posting a section of his book titled ‘Meeting God at the Edge of Infinity and Why I Like Walking Ocean Beaches.’ Since summer is here and vacation season is upon us, I thought it would be a good reminder for us to see through the beauty of nature to our beautiful Creator.”

Guard Your Purity – I love this: “A key and often overlooked aspect of God’s goodness is that He doesn’t give us commands we cannot fulfill.

Part of the assumption in each of God’s commands to us is that, through the assistance of His Spirit, we’re able to accomplish what He has commanded us to do.”

Ed Young on Reformed Theology – I presume lots of people will be writing about Ed Young’s ridiculous anti-Calvinistic rant. Denny Burk has a few of the details.

How We Die – This is an interesting chart that compares causes of death today versus causes of death in 1900.

—C.H. Spurgeon

    Redeeming Sex in Marriage

    Surely few things in this world are more mysterious than sex. Surely few things give such clear evidence that there must be more to them than the sum of their parts. On the one level, sex is a simple biological function that exists to populate the earth with human beings. On the other level, it…
