The Saturday Post(s)

Saturday Post

Worry Writes a Letter. This is equal parts creativity, humor, and wisdom. “Dear Stephen, It’s that time of year again! It’s time to renew your annual subscription to Worry Incorporated! We at Worry Inc. greatly value your business, and wanted to remind you of all the great services that we offer. Here’s a sampling of the great services we are offering this year…”

How Should the Church Respond to the Transgender Question? Best to think about this before your faced with it. “Time Magazine’s bold cover of Laverne Cox—a transgendered woman—brings this issue directly onto center stage.  This is a colossal milestones in the Public Square…how should the church respond?”

Hellfire & Damnation. Douglas Wilson brings some much needed reflection on the Bible’s use of terrifyingly fearful, warning language of the Bible.

Serving Those With Same-Sex Attraction in Our Churches. “Sam Allberry has been a pastor at St. Mary’s Church, Maidenhead…and is a contributor to the website LivingOut.org, which seeks to biblically help those who struggle with same-sex attraction. He is the author of the book Is God Anti-Gay? Sam was kind enough to answer some questions about his experiences with same-sex attraction (SSA), as well as provide insight into how the church can effectively serve those who struggle with SSA.”

 The Hardest Place on Earth to Be a Christian. “Other nations persecute believers, but in Pakistan the entire country has spent generations forming a world view that values the torturing of those that claim the name of Christ.”

Is the Cross Divine Child Abuse? “Jesus received wrath and death that we might receive grace and life. Our debt has been paid by another—in full. And this is anything but divine child abuse. Let me give you four reasons why.”

You Also Need to Hear Romans 8:29. “My wife Maria had just suffered a miscarriage, our third lost pregnancy. The doctors had told us that we’d never be able to have children. Our house was funereal…” What would you console them with?

The God of Diverse Excellencies. There is so much wisdom here. This is a must read.

Mind (Ear?) Blowing…
