Today Logos users can vote in the second round of March Matchups competition. You’ll also want to look at this month’s free and nearly-free books as well as the monthly sale.

My Daughter Plays Competitive Club Volleyball

I don’t often link to Twitter posts (though when I do, I always preface it by saying “I don’t often link to Twitter posts.”). But this one is especially good and challenging for parents with athletic children.

Your Ministry Shouldn’t Bother Starting a YouTube or TikTok

There is wisdom here—wisdom about why it probably doesn’t make a lot of sense for your ministry (or church) to invest a lot of effort in YouTube or TikTok.

Does the Doctrine of Limited Atonement Undermine Evangelism?

I don’t think anyone has ever done a better job of answering questions like this than R.C. Sproul.

Sycophants and Liars

This article makes the point that AI is essentially a sycophant and a liar. “While I am concerned about digital technology, its dehumanising effects, and the ways we can embrace our own humanity both with and without certain digital tools; today I’d like to explore what this piece of research says about us.”

The Picture We Hold

“It’s been eight years now since we’ve taken a picture of the whole family. Eight years since one daughter walked away from our family circle, taking our grandchildren with her. The rest of us still gather every year, and at the end of our time together we take a group picture. But now, our pictures include one of us holding her portrait.”

Temptations Common to Marriage

And just for kicks, based on the last article, I decided to use AI to summarize this one: It “delves into the challenges that married couples may encounter throughout their relationship. It identifies specific temptations that can undermine a marriage, such as selfishness, discontent, and neglect. The piece emphasizes the importance of recognizing these issues and confronting them with a faith-based perspective. Married individuals are encouraged to lean on scriptural wisdom and to actively work on fostering a loving, committed partnership that can withstand the tests of time. The aim of the article is to offer insight and guidance to help maintain the spiritual and emotional health of the matrimonial bond.”

Flashback: The Cost of Radical Generosity

Their lives sounded pretty good. They sounded better than mine, if I was comparing…And for a moment I wanted it. I wanted it all.

As for me, I have braved the sneer of men because I feared the frown of my Lord.

    How Should We Then Die?

    Euthanasia makes a lot of sense. At least in our culture at this time, it makes intuitive sense that those who are ill without hope for a cure or those who are in pain without likelihood of relief ought to be able to choose to end their own lives. Our culture assumes there are few…

    The Sun Is Blotted from the Sky

    Men of great physical strength have sometimes carried outrageously heavy burdens—six hundred pounds, seven hundred pounds, eight hundred. And even then they have said, “I still have not been fully tested. Put on some more weight! Load me up!” With confidence they have gripped the bar and with great straining and groaning they have lifted…
