Flotsam & Jetsam (10/30)

9.5 Theses on Martin Luther – A must-read piece from Carl Trueman: “In honour of the good Doctor and in the cause of saving him from the domesticated historiography of the Beautiful Young Things, here are a series of theses about the Wittenberger, the cumulative force of which is to prove that in today’s evangelical world he would have made a most excellent taxi driver.”

A Hymn as a Prayer for My City – Beautiful.

Possibly the Worst NY Times Op-Ed in the History of NY Times Op-Eds – I love this. Matt takes on Thomas Friedman, who recently wrote an opinion piece entitled “Why I Am Pro-Life”. (Hint: He’s really not)

Denying Sola Scriptura – Gary Demar on the attempt to neutralize the Bible. “This is the nature of the dispute. While the Protestant believes that Scripture is the ‘exclusive’ source for doctrine – what the Westminster Confession of Faith calls ‘faith and practice’ – the Catholic Church asserts that extra-biblical tradition plays an equal role.”

Benghazi Bungle and Political Hygiene – A good article from Mark Steyn on the administration’s shameful handling of the Benghazi situation.

Captain vs. Crossbones – The next Captain America film is scheduled to be released in 2014. *sigh* Making us wait that long is just not cool.

“We should ask God to increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is dormant, confirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak, and raise it up when it is overthrown.” – Calvin

  1. Because I follow your blog daily young man, you have energized me to read more (other than God’s Word) and I am finding it very much fun! Reading things I never had an interest in before. Thank for helping this old grandmother renew her love of reading/learning!
    Be blessed Corey!
