Combing the Net – 7/20/2010

A Major League Testimony — Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals shares about his relationship with Christ. (HT: Challies)

Scripture Memory: A Father’s Perspective — Tips for teaching Scripture to your children

Evil Pragmatism vs. the Christian’s Right Focus — This is a really good look at the difference between practicality and pragmatism with regard to teaching in the Church. The former is a valuable part of a biblical approach to preaching, while the latter is an inherently flawed approach that leads to “self-justification” and works-righteousness.

Seven Passages on Social Justice — The long-awaited final installment of what has been an outstanding blog series by Kevin DeYoung, in which he provides sound biblical exegesis of passages typically quoted in favor of promoting what is commonly called the “social gospel”. It would be well worth your time to read through the entire series!

Finally, a political statement by comedian Brad Stine. Hopefully it’s good for a laugh, regardless of your personal politics!
