Throughout the week, I click on things and listen to things and stumble upon things, much like you do. They get categorized as one of the ‘Many’, one of the ‘Some’ or one of the ‘Few’. Many of the things are regretful, meaning it was a waste of my time. Some of the things are meh….. so, so…. or whatever. A few of the things are enjoyable, interesting, beneficial or just plain fun.
Below are select ones that fall into the latter category:
-With the forthcoming movie, The Shack, which portrays God as an African-American woman, expecting to be a big hit among Christians, it is important to understand why it is idolatry and other works, such as The Chronicles of Narnia are not. Tim Challies has a very informative article about why Papa of The Shack is very different from Aslan of Narnia.
-Pastor Geoffrey Kirkland has an important article about Church attendance called, Church Member! Fight to Attend Your Church Weekly. Part of his explanation is similar to a post on this blog earlier this week about spiritual gifts. But, Pastor Kirkland is much more thorough and gives numerous reasons why fighting to make church attendance a priority each week is important.
-Greg Lanier sorts out a common misconception regarding the Apostle Paul. Contrary to popular thought, Saul’s name did not change to Paul.
-Yesterday (February 24th) in 1836 is the day that William Barrett Travis dispatched his famous letter from the Alamo to “the people of Texas and all Americans in the world” requesting reinforcements. You can (should?) read it here.
