Disappointing night with the Phillies losing to the Cardinals but I still belong to Jesus, so not really a big deal. These weekend’s links are filled with provocative thoughts and insight. As always, I read ’em, I link ’em, and post ’em, but that doesn’t mean I agree with all that is in them.

One thought on “Multi-Site Churches; Celebrity Pastors; Protestants and Catholics; and the Gospel of Steve Jobs

  1. Love the article by Charles Hodge…one of my favorite theologians. His response is clear, concise and Scripturally based. His writings, though I’m not a 5 pt Calvinist, are as refreshing today as when he first penned them. (I’m a Calvin Light, Cal-minian or 2.5 Calvinist..LOL).

    Also the article on ‘multi site’ is very good…this damage can be seen now by those who have ‘eyes to see and ears to hear’, and will be very evident in the generation to come. IMO, it only has one focus or impetus underneath the claims of outreach…the exaltation of ‘A Man.’ I don’t need to get on this, it will require too long of a comment.

    Thanks for the links…nice reads for end of week thought.
