The Danger of a How-To – I really appreciated this article and it’s big point: “In the end, evangelicals are evangelicals not because we follow four principles, five keys, or six secrets. In the end, evangelicals are evangelicals because we build our lives on the gospel alone. Let us then go and preach and minister and live accordingly.”

Fair Analysis of the New NIV – WORLD magazine shared this comparison of the NIV and the new NIV.

50 Years of Toys – This infographic shows 50 years of popular toys. We all had at least a few of them!

Binge Viewing – Netflix has released data to show that you love to binge and watch a whole season of a show in a week: “The data adds to evidence that binge viewing is becoming a social norm.”

My Preferred Way to Read the Bible – Jim Elliff: “It’s presumptuous for a man to suggest that he knows the best method for everyone to read the Bible. But I’m going to tell you the way that I best read the Bible … and why it works so well for me.”

The Work of Zina Nicole Lahr – This is the latest viral video, and it’s kind of a sweet one. Sadly, Zina died just days after the video was finished. I found these words in an article about her life and death: “Her love for others was incredibly evident as was her love for Jesus … Her faith was the most important part of her, no doubt. She had a style that was all her own.”

There are such things as Christian tears, and too few of us ever weep them.

  • Why Do I Feel Such Profound Loneliness?

    This week the blog is sponsored by Moody Publishers and is written by Steve DeWitt. The story of human loneliness has its roots in the character of God and God’s purpose in creating us.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created…

    Stop Swiping, Start Serving

    I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that in the past few weeks, you have probably not gotten rip-roaring drunk nor participated in a debauched drinking party. You have probably not given yourself over to rampant sexual immorality or a life obsessed with sensuality. At least, I hope not
