This past week, I shared the following links on social media and I think they’re worth sharing here too:
Does Systemic Racism Exist?
That’s a provocative question in today’s environment. Samuel Sey’s answer will stir up your grey matter.
When C.S. Lewis was an atheist…
This is an excerpt from Douglas Bond’s book War in the Wasteland.
Why haven’t we heard from ET?
Jon Dykstra considers the possibilities and comes up with what seems to me to be the most likely answer.
A Free People’s Suicide? — The End of Law and Order in the West
I’m sure you’ve heard the rallying cries of either defunding or dismantling police forces around the world. What could possibly go wrong? David Robertson provides some penetrating analysis of the spirit of the age, a spirit which is increasingly lawless and illogical.
Does the Condition of Your Church Facility Matter to Guests?
“I find that many church members take better care of their homes, boats, cars, motorcycles, and even their pets than they do their ministry facilities. Is this acceptable to you? It is not to me, and I suggest that the church (big “C”) wake up, take notice, and do something about it. I believe that God will hold each of us responsible and accountable for how we steward every resource entrusted to us.” And even more than stewardship, this is about the gospel. When we show that value the church and its facilities poorly, it reflects poorly on the rich gospel we aim to preach there.

The White Horse Inn is one of my favourite radio programs. This episode features a powerful interview with two ex-insiders from the prosperity “gospel” world. Costi Hinn is a nephew of Benny Hinn; Michael Cerullo is a grandson of Morris Cerullo.
