This past week, I shared the following links on social media and I think they’re worth sharing here too:

Families Pushed Toward Abortion

It’s a myth that every abortion is freely chosen by the woman. Many women are pressured into having abortions, including by doctors. My wife experienced this with our youngest, and many others have too. They make it sound like it’s your duty to have an abortion if there’s the slightest indication of an abnormality.

God Loves LGBTQ People More Than We Do

Samuel Sey: “God isn’t ashamed of the gospel. He isn’t embarrassed by his word. He isn’t anxious about telling people good things that might offend them. God isn’t afraid to tell the truth about sexual sin. God isn’t tempted to lie about pornography, fornication, adultery—and especially, homosexuality and transgenderism.”

My Life as a Christian Under a Communist Regime

This is really insightful, especially this: “It may surprise you, but from my perspective the main suffering for Chinese Christians is not physical persecution or lack of religious liberty but bad theology, though the reason behind bad theology is the lack of freedom.”

Washington Post column: Kids should watch portrayal of sex acts at ‘pride’ parades

Jonathon Van Maren: “In short, we’ve gone from: How dare you accuse us of wanting to influence kids? to Of course kids should see sex acts at Pride Parades!”

From Devastation to Deliverance

“Once constantly drunk and suicidal, William shares the story of how his sister, Danica, was influential in his coming to Christ. Despite a heart-breaking loss in their family, William and Danica share about the joys of being children of the only true God and testify to the importance of the local church in this evangelism story.”

How to Start to Read the Bible

David Qaoud: “In this post, I will give advice for those of you who want to start reading the Bible but are not sure where to start or what to do. I write with beginners and new believers in mind, but I hope seasoned Bible readers will find benefit as well.”

Million Dollar Note

When I was at Synod, one of my colleagues introduced me to this clever evangelistic resource. I left a bunch of them around the Melbourne airport the other day — and when I came home, I ordered 200 more. There are similar tracts for the US and Canada.

Comfort Facing Death

I officiated at a parishioner’s funeral on Friday. One of the songs we sang was Psalm 139. Then I noticed this beautiful little meditation on the same Psalm. Death is the one thing we all have to face — as Christians we need not fear it or be anxious about it. Its sting has been removed by Christ. It’s a beginning, not an end!

Friedrich Schleiermacher, the PCA, and Side B Christianity

Chris Gordon reflects on what’s ailing the Presbyterian Church in America.

A Prisoner Set Free

“Jesus did not come for the healthy but the sick, and that includes the prisoners regardless of their crime. In this evangelism story, hear how a man, Colin, was freed from two types of imprisonment — a temporal and eternal. The latter was brought about by his friend, Julian, who was faithful to share the gospel with him relentlessly — even though Colin mocked and scorned him.”
