Enjoying a visit with an unsung hero of this generation, Terry Ivy. A man mighty in faith and obedience who God has quietly used to effect the planting of 44 churches in the 10-40 Window of India in just the last 18 months. Thousands have been converted and are being deployed to plant new churches and proclaim the gospel, often in the midst of significant persecution. Praise God for such servants and may God raise up hundreds more like him from our midst.

Better Thinking About Ministry
Defending the Faith–The difference between the original autographs and the original texts (Gospel Coalition — good piece on the authority and integrity of the Scripture.)
A Message for Young, Christian Men (Joe Thorn—timely, biblical and helpful. Pass this one on to the young men in your church.)
The Plastic Fruit of Online Living (Fantastic! article. For all bloggers, writers, Facebook visitors and posters, and anyone who uses the internet, but not just those. The article touches on all attempts to manage perception of others and to keep authentic relationship at bay.)
Better Thinking About Politics and Culture
True Grit—What Parenting with Guts Might Look Like (John Stossel—a lot to agree with here. The ironic thing is that Stossel is an atheist and approaches life with more confidence and less fear than many Christians I know.)
Why French Kids Don’t Have ADHD (Very, very important article for American parents.)
Clone Wars II: Scientists Seeking to Clone Human Beings (Vigilance is the watchword when it comes to science playing God.)
Kermit Gosnell Clone: House of Horrors, Act 2 (Will the national media report on this story?)
Why Weren’t Embassy Attacks Under Bush and Clinton Investigated? (Actually, that isn’t a bad question and the answer make the Obama administration look even more devious and corrupt and incompetent.)
