Flotsam & Jetsam (3/8)

Book Giveaway: March – Hop over to Erik’s blog and enter to win a copy of J.C. Ryle’s classic book Holiness.

Is Gay the New Black? [Caution: Mature] – Careful! If you’re anti-perversion you may just belong to a hate group! Gary Demar writes, “Any time the liberal media want to disparage the right side of the political spectrum, they call on a pool of go-to guys and gals to make their case for them. It’s not news reporting; its ideological position marketing.”

Trio – Laughter is such a wonderful thing…

What I’d Have To Deny to Deny Hell – From Tim Challies: “What would I have to deny in order to deny hell? If I am ever to come to the point of denying the existence of hell, what will be the doctrinal cost of getting there? Though I am sure there is much more that could be said, I came up with four denials.”

I’m Readin’ A Book – When one’s passion for reading goes a little too far. (There’s brief name-calling, so I recommend parents preview this one before allowing little ones to watch.)

This Is Where I Am – Short, but very thought-provoking. Thanks Persis!

Does God Love the Sinner? – Tackling another evangelical cliche: “God hates the sin but loves the sinner.”

The Sorrows that Come from God’s Hand – Stephen Altrogg over at The Blazing Center shares an encouraging quote by John Newton.

“An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered; an adventure is
an inconvenience rightly considered.” ~ G.K. Chesterton

  1. Thanks for the link.

    I never liked “love the sinner, hate the sin” as being too simplistic and not Biblically founded. I appreciate Dr. Carson’s response to that overused phrase.

    1. Seems evangelicals have quite a few of those simplistic cliches, unfortunately. People need to be more concerned about whether a statement is biblical than whether it’s catchy.
