Flotsam & Jetsam (3/26)

Ligonier 2012 (Day 1) – Persis shares her notes from the 2012 Ligonier Conference. You can also read part two and part three. Excellent stuff.

What Asimov’s Foundation Taught Me About Christian Living – Great thoughts from Josh at Quieted Waters: “Foundation is a collection of four short stories, following the men and women sent to the colony with the promise that their descendants will one day reunite the planets. In each, a major crisis arises, and the situation seems hopeless. But the residents reassure themselves with the knowledge that they cannot fail. Their founding scientist has said so.”

Book Review: The Holiness of God – Michael Wright shares his thoughts R.C. Sproul’s classic book. I read it last year, and it quickly became a favorite. A must-read for every Christian, in my opinion.

Celebrity Pastors and the Roots of American Evangelical Dysfunction – An interesting and thought-provoking post from Phil Johnson. He writes, “Large personalities often have large character flaws. Celebrity leaders and the personality cults they tend to cultivate are fraught with danger. Sycophants and simpletons tend to mimic and exaggerate the shortcomings of men with big egos while spurning the lessons of their failures. The aftermath leaves a long wake.”

Eat Randy – Ok. This is seriously the weirdest thing I’ve seen in a long time. And that is no exaggeration. (HT Michael Wright)

  1. Thank you for the link, sir.

    I agree wholeheartedly with the recommendation of The Holiness of God. I will particularly recommend the chapter on how God’s righteous justice can be reconciled with His infinite mercy, exhibited in Christ.

  2. On that last link – you and me both. That was… disturbing. O.o

    In a totally different vein of thought, I watched R. C. Sproul’s video series on the holiness of God, and it was really, really good! At some point I’m ether going to have watch it again or sit down and read the book…

  3. Great links, thanks for sharing my review as well.

    That is not only the strangest Julian Smith video I’ve ever seen, but probable the strangest video I’ve seen period. (It would make an interesting plot however.)
