From Bill Whittle and company: “Welcome to the Progressive Future”

June 14, 2017

From Bill Whittle, Stephen Green and Scott Ott, here is a discussion titled “Welcome to the Progressive Future”.  In this one, they talk about whether terrorism is “the new normal” and whether Western traditions of liberty prevent us from taking action against inflammatory speech, among other things.  Quite a timely discussion.

 

Stefan Molyneux on “What Do I Do?”

June 13, 2017

This is quite an interesting monologue from Stefan Molyneux on “What Do I Do?” about opposing evil and working to better our times.  While he is coming from a secular perspective, he almost seems, to me, to be acknowledging original sin, though he certainly does not use those words.  I suppose he simply has a realistic view of the human condition.

Something Different: Chesnokov’s “Let Thy Good Spirit” performed by the Te Deum Chamber Choir

Another free book in Kindle format: “C.S. Lewis: A Life Inspired” by Christopher Gordon

June 10, 2017

Today I came across a book on C.S. Lewis titled C.S. Lewis: A Life Inspired, by Christopher Gordon that is currently available free in Kindle format.  If you have been wanting to know more about C.S. Lewis, this is a short (132 pages) and quite readable overview of his life.  The Amazon page has this review of the book by Dr. Rick Shrader:

This is a new attempt at giving the spiritual journey of Lewis beginning with his separated childhood, secluded in a country house with nothing but books, to his life of notoriety as an Oxford professor of English Literature and author. It is different than a standard biography, though it covers the major events in Lewis’ life chronologically, even his literary works, but more than that its purpose is to watch God as the divine Angler, pull His fish in over time and circumstance. It is not a long read, but one that would touch a similar atheist or agnostic and bring him on his journey to faith. – Dr. Rick Shrader, Founder, Aletheia Baptist Ministries

If you are interested in C.S. Lewis, you may want to give C.S. Lewis: A Life Inspired a try; note I do not know how long it will be free.

From Preaching Matters: the Rev. Charlie Skrine on teaching the Book of Micah

June 9, 2017

This month’s Preaching Matters from St. Helen’s Bishopsgate in London has the Rev. Charlie Skrine talking about teaching the book of Micah.  The St. Helen’s website says:

What is the mark of the Spirit-filled preacher?

How much time should preachers spend on Micah’s particular situation? What is it about the false prophets that makes for such compelling contemporary parallels when preached correctly? Where can we go with our application?

Who is God? What is he like? How would your friends describe the God you believe in and preach? Is he a god angry with sin? Does he forgive bad people?

Charlie Skrine raises these questions in this month’s Preaching Matters, from the book of Micah.
