Creativity Cramp Redux

Almost a year ago I created a phrase to describe something I was going through. Being unable to come up with any new and exciting site designs, I found that the words Creativity Cramp described how I was feeling. It is a general inability to be creative. And that’s where I am today. I have attempted to write three different articles and all of them were just awful. I don’t often give up, but today I am doing just that. My ability to create has left me, hopefully just for today.

In the meantime, here is some interesting reading:

  • He Lives continues the series on church history. Unfortunately it has resulted in him posting nothing else over the past weeks.
  • Tim Irvin writes about the Masons. You can read part one and part two.
  • Ochuk writes about Billy Graham and Inclusivism and yours truly took the opportunity to open my mouth (probably a bit too wide)!
  • And finally, I’m sure I’ve said this before, but if you don’t read James White’s blog, you really need to begin. He seems to find trouble like I find candy bars (ie way too often). He deals with trouble better than I deal with the candy bars. You can read his blog here. I especially enjoyed his little tangle with David Cloud. Cloud wrote a nasty article about White but soon changed some of the text (I read the first version) but then refuses to talk to or debate White. While I appreciate aspects of Cloud’s ministry in that he does stand for truth, he certainly isn’t very good at choosing his battles, much like his friend Dave Hunt.

And that is all you will get out of me today, unless I am suddenly moved to write something fascinating.

I’ll give you a sneak peak at a quote I tried writing about today but will hopefully get to tomorrow:

And by the way, there’s truth in every religion. Christians believe that there’s truth in every religion. But we just believe that there’s one savior. We believe we can learn truth — I’ve learned a lot of truth from different religions. Because they all have a portion of the truth. I just believe there is one savior, Jesus Christ.

Any thoughts on that?

    Young Man, Don’t Even Make that First Sports Bet

    It’s impossible to avoid the advertising and impossible to miss the claims. Sports are great, they say, but do you know what makes them even better? Adding a little wager. Sports are exciting, they say, but even more exciting when you’ve got a bit of money riding on them. So why not enjoy them all…

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…

    The Way You Walk

    You can tell a lot about people by the way they walk, can’t you? You can tell a lot about their physical health, their emotional state, and perhaps even their spiritual condition. You can often tell at a glance whether they are healthy or ill, joyful or sorrowful, delighting or despondent. Consider a company of…
