Combing the Net – 6/2/2011

Is It Hot Out There? — A new study shows that people are more likely to believe in global warming when it’s hot outside. I don’t fall into that category, but I’ll admit to being more likely to make global warming jokes when it’s snowing in April…

Christians and Their Sports Heroes — Owen Strachen on the Jim Tressel fiasco. A good reminder that it’s okay to be a Christian and like sports, but we must “avoid the pitfalls of Sportianity”.

Is E-mail Becoming Obsolete? — I don’t know if it’s there yet, but I’ve definitely noticed trends in my communication with parents and teachers at the School of Performing Arts; I’m increasingly unlikely to receive a reply to e-mails. Many now seem to prefer that I contact them via text message or Facebook.

Men, Temptation, and the Gospel — A great article for men. I also encourage you to click over to the Harvey Mansfield article he references in the beginning.

Reading Classics Together — This is one of my favorite intermittent blog series’. From time-to-time, Tim Challies invites readers to read through a classic book from Christian literature or theology, interactin through a discussion of a chapter a week on his website. I’ve followed the last several, and look forward to the next, which began today. Up for discussion this time is J. Gresham Machen’s Christianity and Liberalism, which is a favorite of mine. I reviewed it here.

This clip from “King of the Hill” has some surprisingly trenchant observations about Christianity and the youth group culture (HT: Thabiti Anyabwile).

    Wow…I never was much for King of the Hill. And I wasn’t sure where they were going with this. But that last line was powerful.
