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.

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. When you share the gospel, it’s good to invite people to call out for God to save them. 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.
