Combing the Net – 7/13/2011

10 Reasons You Should Move to New England — Who says you need to move overseas to take the gospel to an unreached people group?

Kayaker’s Body Found in Lake Pleasant —This is just a sad, sad story from CAMP-of-the-WOODS, the Christian family resort where I spent several summers working during college. Many of my closest friendships grew out of relationships formed with fellow staff members, and I can’t imagine what it must be like for this summer’s staffers to have lost a friend this way. My prayers are with the family and friends of Anthony Perez.

The Problem With Being Radical — I concur with Tim Challies’ take on David Platt’s first book. As much as I loved it, I also realize that books like that (Crazy Love and others in a similar vein) do not tend to have a life-changing effect on readers. The danger is that we make a rash decision in an effort to be “radical enough”, rather than wait for God. Platt himself deals with some of these problems in the follow-up book, Radical Together.

A Word About C.J. Mahaney — Ligon Duncan lends support to his friend, who announced a leave of absence last week from the presidency of Sovereign Grace Ministries. It seems we are so used to people letting us down that we don’t know how to handle a situation in which sin is actually being dealt with in the proper way.

Ever Heard of the First Amendment? — Al Mohler responds to an editorial in the USA Today in which a Muslim-American woman calls for government intervention to force religious institutions to implement a “nondiscrimination policy” that would prohibit different roles for men and women.

No reason to include this video, other than the fact that I just finished Me, Myself, and Bob, the autobiography of Phil Vischer, creator of VeggieTales, and I think the only way to get this song out of my head is to share it with you!
