A La Carte (April 11)

Sex After Christianity – This is an important essay on sex after Christianity. “Same-sex marriage strikes the decisive blow against the old order. The Nation’s triumphalist rhetoric from two decades ago is not overripe; the radicals appreciated what was at stake far better than did many—especially bourgeois apologists for same-sex marriage as a conservative phenomenon.”

Platt on Heaven Is For Real – David Platt goes off on Heaven Is For Real and other heaven tourism books.

Sovereign God – Paul Miller’s article on God’s sovereignty is a good one. “What does it mean to say that God is sovereign? The refrain has become so common, almost clichéd, in Reformed writing and preaching that it sometimes slips away from the reader or listener without lodging meaning in the mind.”

Light Signatures – Can you identify these cities by their nighttime light signatures?

Happy Birthday Jake – Be sure to read Greg Lucas’ letter to his son on his twenty-first birthday. (And if you haven’t done so you, consider reading his book Wrestling with an Angel.)

Bible Balance in Christian Ministry – Church leaders ought to read this one about Bible balance in ministry. “Many errors in the church are not ones of substance, but degree. It is possible for a pastor to lead his church poorly while teaching wonderful things. How? By giving those good things disproportionate emphasis in the life of the body.”

Brooks

The two poles could sooner meet, than the love of Christ and the love of the world.

—Thomas Brooks

    The Way You Walk

    You can tell a lot about people by the way they walk, can’t you? You can tell a lot about their physical health, their emotional state, and perhaps even their spiritual condition. You can often tell at a glance whether they are healthy or ill, joyful or sorrowful, delighting or despondent. Consider a company of…

    The Least of My Children’s Accomplishments

    I know what it is to be a father and to take pride in the achievements of my children. I had not been a father for long when I learned that the least of my children’s accomplishments by far outshines the greatest of my own. Their smallest victory generates more delight than my largest and…
