Weekly roundup

Fantastic video clips of John MacAurthur on Larry King.   Why can’t more Christian leaders come across like this?  He is easy to understand, consistent, humble and always points back unapologetically to the Bible as our authority.

More people have been killed, slaughtered, raped, tortured and maimed in the name of God than for any other reason.  Or have they? 

Pro-choicers want abortions to be “safe and legal?”  How about just legal?  Planned Parenthood in Missouri may sue regarding some “onerous” safety requirements.  How ironic – PP says the law will “drastically limit Missouri women’s access to safe and legal abortions,” when the whole point of the law is to increase safety!  You’d think they would fully support the law.  Read the article and see how many of those items are unreasonable.

You’ve probably noticed the little pictures of people next to their comments.  WordPress added this feature recently.  I sort of like it, except when I’m catching up and responding to multiple threads.  I really don’t need to see my picture 5 times, and I doubt you do either.  So I’ll apologize in advance and in perpetuity right now.

Thoughtful piece on Environmentalism and Christianity

Pastor James MacDonald on money (from a study of Proverbs): Money – gain it honestly, esteem it accurately and share it generously or it will destroy you and your family.

When it comes to Rick Warren I’m neither a fan nor a caustic critic.  But he does have a bad habit of taking verses out of context.  In a column on laughter he quoted Psalm 2 but completely misunderstood the point.

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Psalm 2:4, “The One enthroned in heaven laughs.” Isn’t that a great verse? God has a sense of humor. God laughs!

But Psalm 2 isn’t about God laughing at jokes.  He is laughing with derision at those who mock him and ignore his Son.

Great summary on Iraq by Victor Davis Hanson (Hat tip: Queen of Swords)

Lying for Islam – They aren’t supposed to lie, unless they think it will serve their interests.  Check.

  1. About 100 million people were killed in the name of atheism during the Stalinist regime.

    Many people are murdered and raped in the name of money, gangs, or power struggles every day.

    Great article re: abortion clinics. Just goes to show you that you can’t be pro-choice and pro-life. ;)

  2. “About 100 million people were killed in the name of atheism during the Stalinist regime.”

    Isn’t that stunning? It is hard to imagine one death like that let alone 100 million.

    Isn’t Stalin the guy who said, “One death is a tragedy, a million is a statistic?”

  3. “They aren’t supposed to lie, unless they think it will serve their interests.”

    Actually it is worse than that. It isn’t an Islamic sin to lie to an infidel. They don’t count. I had a guy nemed Daniel on my blog yesterday claiming the old conspiracy theory about the neocons (ie Bush and company) having advance knowledge or actual complicity in 911. Don’t know if he is an Islamist or just an apologist, but he sure hates the right side of the asile in America……….steve

  4. I always love reading your blog, Neil. Even if I don’t comment, know I’m reading. Most likely I don’t comment because 20 other people have stated something I was thinking…and then its just redundant. Anyway, I just was checking in so you know I’m reading…

    Have a blessed day.

So, what do you think?
