Weekend Links

starfish_5_v1Still training church planters up in Mount Prospect but here is a set of links I prepared through out the week. Enjoy.

Defending the Faith

My Classmate Bart Erhman’s Hopeless Response to Suffering  (Mark Williams—a good collection of links related to the problem of suffering.)
A Plea to Pastors and Elders to Train their Congregations to be Discerning Readers (Excellent article and a good challenge.)

Obamacare, aka Affordable Health Care, now aka The Available Health Care Follies

Former Democratic Operative Now Says “I Was Wrong” About Obamacare  (Now they tell us. Stunning admission by a former Obamacare supporter.)
Compassion Means Opposing Obamacare  (Video—We need to help people, real people, poor people and Obamacare is not the way to get it done.)
Dishonesty, Deceit, Lies, Obfuscation, and Half Truths are NEVER a Good Basis for Law
(Good article on the problem with RIght, Left, and Non-existent Media truthfulness related to Obamacare.)

Better Engagement with Body of Christ Worldwide

The War Against Christians  (What we are experiencing in America is nothing compared to what our brothers and sisters around the world are going through. 11 Christians, every hour of every day, 365 days a year lose their lives simply for identifying themselves as Christians. Maybe one of most important articles you could read today.)

Is Christian Chastity Possible?  (Michael Jenson—The tide of the culture is against us but is it impossible?)

The Superior Thought and Lasting Impact of C.S. Lewis over JFK and Aldous Huxley  (On November 22, of this year it will be 50 years since C.S. Lewis, John F. Kennedy and Aldous Huxley died within hours of one another.) 

Why Everyone In America Needs to Read My Book

Why is This Legal?  (There is nothing wrong with people becoming wealthy through hard work. There is everything wrong with Congressman and Senators getting rich through fraud, loopholes, abuse and lack of any ethical conscious.) [My Book: Picking a President: Or any other elected official.]

Why We Need to Reinvent Our School System

The Wussification of Boys  (Overstated? Understated? RIght on Target? Read and decide. My take? There is a lot to commend in this article.)

Why We Need to Reinvent Our Work Ethic

Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs on How Many are Following the Worst Advice in the History of the World  (I love the show and Mike Rowe makes a lot of sense.)
A Refreshing (despite language) Reappraisal of Motherhood from a Former Atheist (He took heat but he made a point.)

Documenting the Insanity of the Culture

Pedophilia Now Classified as a Sexual Orientation (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ????????????????)
