Why Your Body Is AMAZING!

You will enjoy this little video that simply describes some amazing facts about the human body.

Debunking Stupid Statements about the Bible

Greg Gilbert takes on ignorant statements like this: “No television preacher has ever read the Bible. Neither has any evangelical politician. Neither has the pope. Neither have I. And neither have you. At best, we’ve all read a bad translation—a translation of translations of translations of hand-copied copies of copies of copies of copies, and on and on, hundreds of times.”

One of the Strangest Commands in the Bible

“Why in the world would God tell Israel to hamstring captured horses? Does he have something against horses?”

Sex Offenders in the Pews

“One of the many horrors about child sexual abuse is the inability to definitively assess who poses a danger to our children.” We need to understand the danger and properly equip our churches.

Rain for RootsNew Album. Today marks the release of Waiting Songs, a new album by Rain for Roots. It is a collection of 10 songs for children exploring the themes of Advent. You can listen to the whole thing at Bandcamp (maybe begin with Isaiah 11) and purchase it right here.

Why a Friend Is Suing Me

Barronelle Stutzman, owner of Arlene’s Flowers, explains why she felt she could not sell flower arrangements for a gay friend’s wedding.

Christian Mingle Inspector

This is a pretty good bit of parody.

Inge

Whoever marries the spirit of this age will become a widow in the next.
