    The article on Evolution and the Historical Fall twists scripture like a pretzel. I don’t recall a single NT verse being quoted when they talk about the biblical Adam. Why would you trust evolution to define your biblical Adam and not the New Testament passages that are much clearer about the biblical Adam? If you don’t get the biblical Adam correct, whats to stop you there from redefining the biblical Jesus? Instead of using scripture to interpret scripture the article uses its modern scientific understanding of biological evolution to understand selective portions of the old testament. Biased!

    Nice list thanks. I also wanted to take the time to say something, I was so moved by Alex and his reconciliation so I want to take this time to try to do the same thing here. If I have upset you, caused you to stumble or in anyway caused anyone to take their eyes of Jesus I ask for your forgiveness. This blog and you folks were/are very important to me and were there when I needed a place to vent. I wish all of you a nice evening.

    The Biblical Preaching article on expository sermons is outstanding.

    Re: A Christian Approach to Homelessness

    A few of the issues there are what we encountered in the Silicon Valley. Despite being one of the richest regions on the planet, we have a huge homeless population. I spotted some new encampments next to one of the major freeways this past weekend.

    I heard that there were those in City Hall who didn’t like the fact that our outreach was faith-based and worked to limit us. We couldn’t do Thanksgiving this past year due to the $3000 permit it cost to set up in one of the city parks, though we did the year before. That year, a health inspector came by to test the meat. That seems reasonable. However, he also said that volunteers couldn’t bring good to the guests at the tables because it was “unsanitary” and ditto for bringing pitchers of drinks. Almost all of these people live on the street, some eating out of dumpsters, but what he said was “unsanitary.” Not 50 yards away, a group of homeless were smoking crack on city property.

    I think that’s going to change soon. I think local governments will finally start to understand that, as these issues worsen, they have an ally in the church that is ready and wanting to help. A local DSHS in the Portland metro area is now partnering with a large church to help find homes for foster kids. This partnership is happening in local schools as well.

    Just keep making your services available as best you can and I think they will change their minds and realize the resource they have in the church.
