Christ and Homosexuals

Some homosexuals organized a gathering outside a Southern Baptist seminary to protest their stance on homosexuality. Then the seminary students did what they should do: they handed out water to the protesters. Maybe Southern Baptists are taught the love of Jesus...

Fruit Inspections

So many things to have fun with in this article! So Fred Thompson is bad, Newt (On my third wife) Gingrich is the real thing? And his organization is called "Focus on the Family"? I just think it is weird to say Newt says the right things (may not live it) and Fred does not say the right things, therefore... Newt is true Blue and Fred is not. I also have to reject the premise that we need a "evangelical" Christian as the litmus test for President.

Gospel and Robes

I attended a mid-day mass in Dallas at an Anglican Church on the invite of a friend. Ministers in robes who actually preach the gospel...different. The church has such a rich history of great christians such as Cramner, Wesley, Whitefield, Wilberforce, John Newton, Charles Simeon, C.S. Lewis, J.I. Packer, and Alister McGrath. Seems the Dallas diocese is one of the most conservative in the country.The Anglican church will gather in 2008 in England to (hopefully) address the ordination of homosexuals by the more liberal wings in America. If the more liberal wings are expelled, the Anglican church might revert to being a great conservative semi-evangelical church again. A hopeful prospect.

Wrongful Life?

A woman is suing after a failed abortion resulted in birth. How sick is our culture when someone's life necessitates compensation?

When asked to give a lecture at Harvard comparing the poverty of India and the wealth of the United States, Mother Teresa flipped the labels. India, she said, is rich with spiritual hunger and culture. The United States is impoverished: only a poverty of soul would kill the unborn for convenience.

Presuming on Grace from a Holy God

Sproul's sermon here is one of the most moving I have heard. In one sermon, Sproul puts the entire Old Testament "Angry" God in perspective. How often we confuse grace and justice. At times, God gives us justice and we cry out for "fairness" and justice, when we really are angry God gave us justice when we wanted grace. "I have mercy on whomever I will have mercy"
