Do Not Be Surprised… This ‘n’ That (17 January 2014)


  • Al Mohler on evolution—and Christianity—as matters of belief.
  • Oh, that Justin Bieber. Always such a model Christian. I wonder what his hip “pastor,” Judah Smith, would have to say about Bieber’s eggy escapades?
  • If you or someone you know is headed to college in the Fall and would like to attend The Master’s College, this would certainly help pay the bills!
  • The oldest trick in the book.
  • I’d be pretty livid if this happened to my child. Gotta love those public schools.
  • Oh good, there’s still hope that lightbulbs that actually give light won’t disappear as quickly as we thought. Anyone else hate those stupid LED and CFL bulbs as much as I do? And have you ever seen all the steps you need to take if every you break one of those “efficient” CFL bulbs?
  • “The hermeneutics of egalitarianism are serious error and are harmful.” Denny Burk offers a good response to Sarah Bessey’s latest feminist diatribe.
  • I’m really glad to hear that Answers in Genesis will be offering a free live stream of the Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham debate. I don’t think that was the original plan, which was disappointing, so it’s great that they’ve changed their approach on this.
  • This looks like a great hot chocolate recipe (even for those of us who are forced to shun dairy).
  • Here’s your weekly dose of adorable.
  • When I heard Tony Campolo was going to “shutter” his ministry, I was hopeful that it would be the ever-progressive, ever-postmodern group, Red Letter Christians. Alas, no.
  • I appreciated the honesty in this article about the devastating effects of pornography on a future marriage. I appreciated even more the reminder that there is forgiveness even for this sin for those who repent and believe upon Christ. “Let [Christ] be your standard of character and flee the temptation to fix your eyes on anything other than Him.”
  • Speaking of James White, he and Mike Abendroth had a good discussion this week on No Compromise Radio.
  • I am not okay with this.
  • Um, I think it may be in bad taste to create a Titanic replica for a theme park and to recreate for visitors the experience of the ship’s fateful collision with an iceberg.
  • J. Gresham Machen’s Christianity and Liberalism is only $0.99 (or at least it was as of this writing. If the price has increased, well, don’t blame me!)
  • Let’s pray for this family.
  • Wait, no sign of evolutionary changes? How utterly unsurprising!
  • T.D. Jakes gives all pastors and Christians a lesson in how not to react to critics.
  • The Elephant’s Debt is closing its doors.
  • Pick me! Pick me! Clint Archer with a helpful article explaining the doctrine of unconditional election. Oh, and here’s Part 1 of that post, if you’re interested.
  • Steve Lawson’s impromptu Gospel presentation. Wow:
