Saturday Snippets (August 14)

As well as reading a lot of books, I also read a ton of articles every week. Here are some of the articles that I’ve read recently and have found interesting, helpful, challenging and encouraging. I hope that they will be the same for you, my dear readers…

There are fewer than normal as I’ve been on holiday this past week 🙂

How I read you

“We may not like it but people are forming judgements about us all the time and they form them based on what they are immediately able to see and recognise. Most of us are not writing books but our lives provide a book that others read.”

Why I’m finally a young earth creationist

The interesting journey of Jim Mason as he wrestled with creation and God’s Word.

Three Arguments for Weekly Communion

This is a topic that I’ve thought a lot about recently. Check out Neste’s thoughts.

The importance of truth in a truth-less world

“There is no such thing as ‘your truth’ or ‘my truth’. Truth is not relative. Christians should be at the forefront of the movement that points people to see the importance of knowing and standing firm in truth.”

A Plea to Church Members: Give Your Pastor Grace

“brothers and sisters, be patient, be loving, bear burdens (don’t add to them), and remember the grace you would want to receive and then give it to your pastor. He needs your support and encouragement now more than ever, would you lovingly offer it to him? Because he desperately wants to give it to you, but may find it difficult when he’s ministering with “groaning,” which “is not advantage to you.””

JOSH HARRIS’S MESSAGE REMAINS THE SAME

A very interesting assessment by Trueman… “You can take the boy out of American celebrity evangelicalism, but you cannot take the American celebrity evangelicalism out of the boy. Messianic self-confidence comes as standard. And the preacher is still both the salesman and the product being sold.”
