Linkathon 4/7: Part 2
So Rick Warren is going to speak at the Desiring God National Conference this October. How have the bloggers responded?
“John Piper was right to invite Rick Warren”
“No, Warren shouldn’t have been invited”
“Hey, what’s the big deal anyway?”
Meanwhile, Andrew Jones reminds us of an emerging situation he sees as vitally important to the church this century: how it interacts with emerging Muslim followers of Jesus Christ.
Jim Bomkamp on reconciling the gospel accounts of Jesus’s resurrection.
Tom Stipe: As good as it gets – a message to baby boom Christians.
Ministry Today: 38 percent of churches in 2009 saw a decline in donations.
Mark Driscoll on the importance of solitude and fellowship.
Jared Wilson’s ten reasons big Easter giveaways FAIL.
Gerry Breshears on the Holy Spirit.
Michael Patton on really bad apologetics and on the “new Calvinism”.
Carole Turner: Don’t believe what people say.
Michael Horton’s advice to the young Reformed.
David Murray: Is failure the last taboo in ministry?
Dan Edelen on Christianity and a new America.
Finally – Soviet the people’s board games from the 1920s and 1930s (HT: Boing Boing)
…reserved for Bob…
Regarding the Patton article: Yep, folks will believe things like that, yet refuse to believe brothers are not brothers.
Tom Stipes article is very much worth a read…hit me between the eyes.
I liked Carole Turner’s pictures with the comments. Very positive!
I didn’t care for Tom Stipe’s saying “we” this, “we” that. Baby boomers are all individuals and I would rather he speak for himself only.
Let’s not forget TBN.
Here’s a link to an interesting article:
Fear God…not man, or circumstances…make sure your house is built on the Rock.
There are some tough times coming…
Had an interesting discussion today with a former CIA operative who confirms that we are in an economic world war (if you will)…and the next 20 years are going to require a dramatic shift in direction if we are to “win”…as a Nation.
As people of God…members of the “Church”…
We need to pray that God’s will be done…whatever it may be.
Don’t feel like linking to LHT’s, but….there’s some tripe about how a families church becoming “emerging” turned their son into a homosexual.
Silly me for believing a persons depravity and cold-dead heart leads one into sin.
lht had on an article about the great falling away. Now when I was first a Christian this was a big theme, next to the almost everyone is going to hell theme was the falling away. With all the puff blown aside I think most of these proponents really dont believe in a God who can save. I mean they go on about the “real man” Jesus, dressed in his cams and toting an m16 AK or what ever. In some ways they are more atheist then atheists. Some of them tend to make the best atheists. Its actually rather sad.
Good point, brian. Sad indeed.
I love how some people think its their job to decide who should speak at a conference and who shouldn’t. NOT! Piper could invite Benny Hinn or Todd “Bam bam” whatshisface for all I care. Piper is a thinker, and I’m sure his decision to invite whomever has been well-thought-out.
