The SBC Reports on the “Calvinism Advisory Committee”

The advisory committee has put together a wonderful document on cooperation.  It was presented at the Southern Baptist Convention this past week. The first link is to the report and the second one is Dr. Mohler’s blog on the report.  Both statements are worth the time to read. http://www.sbclife.org/Articles/2013/06/sla5.asp Dr. Mohler’s blog: http://www.albertmohler.com/2013/06/11/truth-trust-and-testimony-in-a-time-of-tension-the-sbc-and-its-future/

The Value of reading C. S. Lewis video

It seems I am constantly having this discussion with people.  I must confess I […]

Raising Kids in a Pornified Culture

Zach Nielsen has written a very helpful blog on raising kids in a culture that is littered with pornography. The article is posted on the Gospel Coalition’s website.  In our culture, you can never be over equipped for this issue. http://thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/tgc/2013/02/27/raising-kids-in-a-pornified-culture/

Te-bowed Out
