Flotsam & Jetsam (6/27)

Just Like Tomorrow Morning Is – “All this reminds us again that there is no political solution to what ails us. We are a nation with the staggers, and our prophets and judges all have paper bags over their heads. There is such a thing as political and legislative faithfulness, but there is no such thing as political and legislative salvation. God brings us to the end of our puny little abilities so that we may trust, not in ourselves, but in Him, the God who raises the dead.”

Our Business – Eliot nails it.

MovieByte: Monsters University – It’s not as good as the original, but TJ calls it “a pretty good return to form for Pixar.” Good to hear. I’m looking forward to seeing it myself.

A Monk of Summers – Why you should shop at TJ Monx.

The Myth of Persecution – Trueman’s reviews are always entertaining and informative, and this one is particularly so. This passage made me laugh out loud: “Moss’s comment thus left me wondering whether her target audience was not, after all, benighted Bible-thumping Christians but rather the fan base of Jersey Shore.”

The Sine Qua Non of Gospel Ministry – Spurgeon, being boldly biblical. Again.

“The quicker goes the journalist the slower go his thoughts. The result is the newspaper of our time, which every day can be delivered earlier and earlier, and which, every day, is less worth delivering at all.” – Chesterton
