A La Carte (January 24)

Why I Am a Cessationist – Thomas Schreiner has written an article explaining why he is a cessationist (who believes the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit are no longer operative). Sam Storms has written his defense of the opposite perspective.

55.8 Million – Here’s just one way of understanding what it means that 55.8 million babies have been aborted since Roe v. Wade.

Let Your Husband Love You – I suspect a lot of husbands appreciate this article. “I get it. The kids have been climbing on you all day. One or both of your boobs have been exposed 87% of the day and you’re sick of being clawed at, sucked on, licked, punched, kicked, pulled, snotted on, cried on, spit up on, pooped on, and peed on…”

The Science Is Clear – The science is clear: It’s a bad idea to text while walking.

Helping Someone Through a Salvation Experience – This is helpful stuff from David Platt. “Prayer is a right and biblical response to the gospel.

At the same time, it’s unnecessary (and in some ways unhelpful) to tell people what they must say in order to be saved.”

Oh, Oh, Ooh, Ooh, La, La, Whoa – Bob Kauflin has been thinking about the use of generic syllables in congregational singing and shares those thoughts with us.

  • 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…
