The Madness of Daylight Saving Time Endures

It’s that time again. And it still doesn’t really make sense! (Also, I’m in Hawaii this weekend and it seems like the whole state just skips it altogether…)

Evangelicalism After Billy Graham

“As soon as word broke about the death of Billy Graham, the most influential Christian evangelist of the twentieth century, scholars and admirers began asking: ‘Will there ever be another Billy Graham?’ The consensus seems to be ‘no.’” There are several reasons for that.

17 Statements that a Paedobaptist and a Credobaptist Can Both Affirm

Affliction may be lasting, but it is not everlasting.

—Thomas Watson
