Flotsam & Jetsam (9/19)

To Curvet and Simper in the Pulpit – “To curvet and simper in the pulpit is a travesty. Emo-preaching is not preaching at all. To spend a bunch of time up there worrying about how unbelievers might be ‘turned off’ if we say this, do that, or intimate the other is to be a faithless herald. And our current system of theological education produces this kind of pretty boy preacher by the metric ton. One of the reasons we don’t preach repentance is that we might have to go first.”

One Small Baby – Bravo, indeed.

Putting Hollywood to Shame – “It certainly says something about the state of Hollywood today that a three minute ad produced at a fraction of the cost of most movies is more moving and poignant than almost anything the big studios have to offer.”

Please Pass This One Around… – You heard the man. Pass it around.

Theological Primer – A short but extremely helpful piece by Kevin DeYoung on the differences between supralapsarianism and infralapsarianism.

Confused? You Ain’t Seen Nuthin’ Yet! – Trueman nails it: “In his poem Marmion, Sir Walter Scott famously commented on lying as follows: ‘Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive.’ It seems that this line was never more apposite than when it comes to the plastic politics of contemporary sexual identity.”

Dear Parents, You Need to Control Your Kids. Sincerely, Non-Parents – Love it.

“Seize the day, whatever’s in it to seize, before something comes along
and seizes you.” – Lloyd Alexander
