Flotsam & Jetsam (1/19)

SOPA and PIPA – A (chilling) explanation of what these two bills are at face value, as well as what they could end up enabling if passed.

7 Lies About Homeschoolers Busted – Awesome. And funny, too.

Disarming the Gut Reaction – An excellent post by Persis. “…I bring my own assumptions as to why the writer/speaker would use a certain word. I also bring a boatload of associations based on past experiences, even if I desire to respond based on what the Word says alone.”

What We Need – One of the best things I’ve read all week.

40 Questions – Dan Phillips reviews Thomas R. Schreiner’s 40 Questions About Christians and Biblical Law. Looks like a worthwhile book.

Your Brain on Technology – Good stuff to think about.

Of Straw-Men and Shameful Speech [Caution: Mature] – Jerry Wragg addresses the first of four arguments defending sexually explicit dialogue in the Church. “What will be the ultimate outcome of yet another radical, experimental paradigm shift in the way evangelicals conduct ministry?  Even if we grant that today’s average new believer may be haunted by the grossest of perverted pasts (I don’t doubt this is epidemic), why would we imply that becoming sexually ‘clean’ does not result in greater dignity, higher sexual ideals, biblically-guarded conversation, and a purer thought-life?”

Tele-Lectio Divina – I want one of these… not.

“It is absurd for the Evolutionist to complain that it is unthinkable for an admittedly unthinkable God to make everything out of nothing, and then pretend that it is more thinkable that nothing should turn itself into everything.” ~ G.K. Chesterton

  1. Very informative explanation of SOPA/PIPA. Excellent post at The Cripplegate particularly what you quoted. LOVED the homeschool video. “Living at least an hour away from Walmart?” We are within 10-20 minutes of THREE Wal-marts! Bwahahaha!

  2. Great links, that homeschool video was absolutely hilarious. I’m within five minutes of a Walmart, and I’ve seen Finding Nemo. :D Thanks for sharing.
