Flotsam & Jetsam (10/16)

Review/Giveaway: The Hole in Our Holiness – An excellent review of Kevin DeYoung’s new book: “Pastor DeYoung addresses the concern that there’s a disconnect between what we believe (or say we believe) about the gospel and godly living.  We’ve seen the harm that legalism has done, so there’s a temptation to swing to the opposite extreme where we fear that any hint of calling Christians to holiness is a return to that bondage. But this should not be and is not the case.” (You can enter the giveaway here)

The 3 Deadly Corrupting Powers of the Ring – Good stuff.

I Am Not a Pacifist – Or, a rigamarole on readers, writers, reactions, and responsibility. I don’t necessarily agree with everything in the post, but it’s an interesting topic and one which deserves more attention than it gets.

How To Be Persuasive With Our Words – How, indeed.

There Is No Love Without Wrath – Timothy Keller writes, “In an effort to make God more loving, we often make God less loving. His love, in this understanding, required no action. It was sentimentality, not love at all.”

Bad Timing – Funny with a bite.

To ‘Sir’, With Love… – A worthy tribute to P.G. Wodehouse, whose birthday (in case you missed it) was yesterday. “I could have been more well-read! There are two reasons I am not. Firstly, I have this weakness where if I don’t like the first few pages of a book, I find it tiresome to go through with it. The second reason is Pelham Grenville Wodehouse.”

“And she’s got brains enough for two, which is the exact quantity the girl who marries you will need.” – P.G. Wodehouse
