I really enjoyed this look at what makes a Bible translation especially bad. “If you find an English Bible translation on your Christian bookstore shelf, it’s almost certainly good. Buy it. Read it. Trust it. But there are some ‘bad Bibles’ out there, Bibles you won’t find careful evangelical biblical scholars recommending.”
This is a good and important piece of writing from Bethel McGrew.
“No matter how knowledgeable or eloquent the preacher or how diligent and precise the writer, they are no match for the smallest part of the gospel of Jesus Christ… Thus, being torn between my impotence to expound the gospel and my absolute necessity to do so, I commend this work to Christ’s church collectively and to the believer individually.” (Sponsored Link)
You don’t need to share Chris’s view on politics or particular politicians to get the point of what he is saying here. “One of the angles of the American political system that does fascinate me … is the interplay between social media and politicians. Especially when it comes to the Super Bowl of American politics: the United States presidential election.”
This is a fascinating collection of biblical contrasts.
“First Thessalonians 4:11–12 talks about making it your ambition to lead a quiet life. As a commercial real estate broker, I’m told to advertise and promote myself to attract new clients. How should I reconcile these apparently opposing positions?” Miranda Carls answers the question.
Andrew Bunt makes an observation about Jesus’ understanding of marriage and sex.
It’s so often the ones who seemed to be at their greatest moment of success who were on the precipice of destruction. Like blind men about to blunder off a cliff, they were oblivious to their impending doom. They failed to heed God’s warnings in that time in-between.
If you go to Jesus, he may ask of you far more than you originally planned to give, but he can give to you infinitely more than you dared ask or think.—Tim Keller
