Combing the Net – 8/5/2011

When Jon Steward Cried on TV — As we come up on the 10-year anniversary of 9/11, Denny Burk reflects on the stranglehold the entertainment culture has on us. Does it really take a national tragedy to temporarily break us of our addiction to amusement?

A Gentleman Never Arrives Empty Handed — On the lost art of gift giving. I’ll admit to being one who is not usually thoughtful enough to take a gift when I’ve been invited to someone’s home. On the flipside, though, I never feel slighted when people don’t bring us gifts!

What’s Trending in the SBC? — Statistics from thirty years of Southern Baptist Conventions. One thing not considered in this article by Ed Stetzer: Is there a possible connection between the lack of young leaders in our churches and the development of the “modern youth ministry experiment” I mentioned yesterday? This really underscores the need for genuine discipleship in our churches!

The War on Crisis Pregnancy Centers — Albert Mohler on the increasingly desperate attempts by several American cities to shut down organizations that exist to counsel women against killing their unborn children.

The Councils of Constantinople — The latest in the Resurgence series of posts on the historic creeds & confessions of the Church.

Despite the warnings from Zach Nielsen and Tim Challies, I still thought I could watch this new Shane & Shane video without crying. I almost made it all the way through! Both are right, though. I would have thought this was terribly cheesy up until about three months ago.

I love the chorus to this song!

Lyrics:

Hey hey sweet daughter
I am so proud to be your father
Each day is like a gift from God

Hey hey sweet daughter
There’s no music like your laughter
And your smile is like a rising sun

You know I loved you from the start
So come in close
Take my hand for
Daddy shares his heart

I wish that I could be your everything
Be the one to give you all the things you need
Sometimes I’m gonna let you down
But there’s Someone if you just believe
Be your hero like He’s always been for me
Darling, Jesus is the one you need

No matter what you walk through
He will always love you
Just the way you are
For there’s nothing in this world
That I want for my baby girl
Than to be happy ever after

The story of your life is still untold
I pray the King of all the Universe
Would make your heart His own

I wish that I could be your everything
Be the one to give you all the things you need
Sometimes I’m gonna let you down
But there’s Someone if you just believe
Be your hero like He’s always been for me
Darling, Jesus is the one

Who will never leave
He’s been there all along
Or when you’re ready, you can find true love

I wish that I could be your everything
Be the one to give you all the things you need
Sometimes I’m gonna let you down
But there’s Someone if you just believe
Be your hero like He’s always been for me
Darling, Jesus is the one you need
