Flotsam & Jetsam (7/7)

Reel Quick – Click here to read my review of John McTiernan’s groundbreaking action film Die Hard (1988).

Struggle is Good – From Ray Ortlund: “True dependence on the Lord, because of the magnitude of who he is, will hurl us into experiences which evoke the psychological intensity of effort, more than ever before.”

The Gospel and the Gay Moral Revolution [Caution: Mature] – Superb. I especially appreciated John Piper’s thoughts on the subject.

Book Review: John MacArthur: Servant of the Word and Flock – Michael’s verdict? “Most the biographies we have are ones written by people who have lived long ago in days gone by, and their writings and legacies are passed down to us over a long period of time. This time, however, we have a very good biography on a living subject: Pastor and teacher, John MacArthur.

In the Oncology Waiting Room– A beautiful post by Mike Pohlman.

Apologetic Apologetics – A must-read post from Dan Phillips. He writes, “It all boils down to whether we actually believe what we say we believe. If we do, the truth is where everything starts (Prov. 1:7), all other attempts at knowledge or truth or meaning are doomed, and it’s the world that has some ‘splainin’ to do. Not we. In our apologetic, we should make that clear.”

The Definition of an Athiest – From Ray Comfort’s blog: “The Word of God says the atheist is a fool. I agree wholeheartedly. There’s no ‘raw hate.’ It’s simply raw common sense.”

Oh, Lord, I’ll Do Anything – A word from Joel Garner that is both humorous and thought-provoking.

The Gospel and Our Relationship with God, Pt. II – From the Reformed Traveler’s blog: “So are you Christ’s friend? Then believe the truth as He tells it! Believe what He says about you and says about Himself. And above all else, tell the truth about Him.”

“It is far more important, and will do you far more good, to read a smaller number of Christian books which have been well-tried and have proved their value than to develop the Athenian spirit which is attracted to anything so long as it is new.”
