Be sure to read this fantastic review of The Bible Tells Me So, a new and troubling book to Peter Enns. It seems that he is attempting to do for the Bible what Rob Bell did for hell.

I am thankful to Truth Remains for sponsoring the blog this week; you can watch a free documentary about the English Bible at the link.

Ed Welch has an article about The Hopeless Marriage. “I hate that hopelessness. The choices are to persist in the relationship and see who dies first or to craft an independent life and try to pretend you don’t care. Either way, your soul withers.

This video shows how to draw a perfect circle freehand. Scoff all you want, but someday you’ll actually be glad to have watched it.

Al Mohler writes about the ugly situation in Houston . “Here was a legal demand, sent to Christian pastors in the name of one of America’s largest cities, to surrender…” sermons related to homosexuality.

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
