Flotsam & Jetsam (1/3)

Power, Not Philosophy – Can’t wait to read this book.

In Case You Missed It – From Doug Wilson: “It was in the course of this last year that I began doing a book-of-the-month review in the hope that you would link on one or more of the links, and find yourself in the realms of edification and uplift. In case you missed them first time around, here is a round-up.”

Fruit Ninja: Real Life Edition – Couldn’t resist. I laughed myself silly when I watched this the first time. Maybe you will, too.

CT Review: Zero Dark Thirty – David Roark says Zero Dark Thirty  “captures the conflicted, complex moral issues” of the operation to catch Osama Bin Laden. I’ve been looking forward to this film for a long time, and hope to catch it in theaters this month.

Augustine vs. Russell – A superb piece from Dr. Trueman. “Augustine would have asked how the atheist Bertrand Russell could justify his indignation over the use and proliferation of nuclear arms. In a universe that is simply matter and chance, what place, then, for indignation?   All metanarratives become myths whereby one group or individual seeks to impose its will over another.”

13 Things I Need to Get Better At in 2013 – Love this.

“The marvel of marvels is not that God, in His infinite love, has not elected all this guilty race to be saved, but that He has elected any.” – B.B. Warfield

One thought on “Flotsam & Jetsam (1/3)”

  1. Augustine vs. Russell- so true. How did he justify his outrage in a world where nothing is wrong? He truly was forcing his morality on the rest of the world.
