Do Not Be Surprised… This ‘n’ That (04 April 2014)

  • Yikes, another earthquake in SoCal. Feels like it’s about time for a big one, doesn’t it?
  • See, kids, you better clean your room. What a terrible legacy to leave behind!
  • Nancy Pelosi can be so classy.
  • Hey, Indiana, here’s something to be proud of.
  • The Hobby Lobby family visited the Pope. And I’m sure they gave him the gospel, right? Right?
  • I don’t mean to pick on Hobby Lobby, but I’ll admit I’m not as keen on them as are most Christians (after all, if they’re such staunch believers, why all the Santa Claus and Easter Bunny junk in their stores?), and you can’t deny the irony of this.
  • Hey, look! New Age Mormon Glenn Beck is reading (and praising) The Circle Maker.
  • The Archbishop of Atlanta has apologized for his $2.2 million home.
  • But there’s still plenty of religious leaders who are living large.
  • Thom Rainer released a list of “twenty of the most influential evangelicals in America“. The title is extremely misleading: when you only ask 30 people their opinion on such a topic and don’t define what you mean by “evangelical” you end up with a list that includes everyone from T.D. Jakes to Ross Douthat (who is Roman Catholic) to Beth Moore to Al Mohler. To the people who are a bit aflutter over this list: Calm down.

  • Here’s your weekly dose of adorable.
  • Here’s Lyndon Unger’s review of chapter 9 of Authentic Fire.
  • Call me crazy, but isn’t it kind of a good thing if Driscoll’s wack-a-doodle sermons are disappearing?
  • Those of you who have cats know that this is totally true.
  • Hey, Indianapolis people, Carl Trueman is going to be there this weekend!
  • If only I had known about this contest sooner, I totally could have won.
  • The U.S. Education Department, hard at work.
  • It’s 13 feet tall, it’s gold, it’s . . . the ‘angel’ Moroni.
  • A couple of days ago, a friend sent me this. And then I saw this. And then I determined this: we officially cannot rely on anything published under the banner of The Gospel Coalition.
  • So, even I was surprised that Liberty University would “join hands” with Benny Hinn. Here’s the statement released by Liberty to address it. Can we believe it?
  • From this year’s Shepherd’s Conference:
