Do Not Be Surprised…This ‘n’ That (13 December 2013)

  • I’m going to bypass all of the blog chatter about the Driscoll/Mefferd debacle and just share this interview that Slate reporter Ruth Graham did with Janet Mefferd. I hope that those who ignored the thrust of the post, ‘Of Mefferd and Driscoll and Integrity‘ will note the following from the interview: “Mefferd says that ‘no attorneys were involved in this situation’ and that no one at Mars Hill Church, where Driscoll is pastor, suggested she remove the materials.”
  • Another megachurch pastor has committed suicide.
  • Well, I’m sure the pro-homosexuals are hating this story right now.
  • Elizabeth Prata shares some difficult thoughts about Billy Graham.
  • Speaking of Elizabeth, she gets the credit for finding your weekly dose of adorable.
  • These also look delicious, and they’re seemingly allergen-free, which ought to make all my health-nut, gluten-free readers happy.

  • Whew! I feel so much safer now! You just can’t trust those sock monkeys.
  • Some people’s Christmas pet peeve is hearing ‘Happy Holidays.’ This is mine.
  • Good Kindle price on Dr. James White’s Scripture Alone (note, this already has increased by 50¢ since I first bookmarked the link, so buy it quickly).
  • Here’s the link to the debate between Dr. James White and Chris Pinto on the topic, ‘Is Codex Sinaiticus a Modern Forgery?’

  • I have a love-hate relationship with the many stairs of Pepperdine University.
  • Oh my, this breaks my heart.
