Do Not Be Surprised… This ‘n’ That (18 April 2014)


  • Jesse Duplantis just needs to stop.
  • Well, I’m not on John Hagee’s page with the blood moons. (Come to think of it, I’m not on any of the same theological pages as Hagee.) But I don’t mind looking at the pictures of this very cool, very beautiful phenomenon.
  • Adultery is now legal in New Hampshire. Yes, that means it was illegal till now. And no, the law has not been enforced for quite some time.
  • Here’s your weekly dose of adorable.
  • If someone or something ‘nudges’ you to affirm gay marriage, you can be certain of this one thing: it was not Jesus who did the nudging.
  • Good grief. Who gives these people the money to conduct these stupid “scientific” studies?
  • Nothing says Good Friday like a good movie at church, right? *Sigh*
  • Did God die on the cross?
  • Lyndon Unger reviews Appendix 1 of Authentic Fire, written by Dr. Craig Keener.

  • Guess who was asked to deliver the closing prayer at the White House Easter prayer breakfast?
  • This probably should go without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: Do not give your toddler an iPad.
  • Also keep your children away from the local exorcist.
  • Also, do not get this for your mom for Mother’s Day.
