Pop Culture and Abortion – Trillia Newbell at ERLC: “As humans living in a fallen world, we all make mistakes. Celebrities are not immune to this. Assuming that many are not Christians, it would seem unwise to expect Christ-like behavior without the redeeming work of the Spirit in their hearts. They will sin because all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. So what do we do when a star shares that they’ve had an abortion?”

Fairy Dust – R.C. Sproul: “As Jesus is about the business of remaking, redeeming the world, as He, the second Adam succeeds in fulfilling the dominion mandate, our dirt becomes ever more productive and fruitful.”

A Global Slaughter of Christians, but America’s Churches Stay Silent – Kirsten Powers on the deafening silence from American pews and pulpits in the face of severe and unashamed persecution in Pakistan, Syria, and Kenya.

Desiring God 2013 National Conference Rebroadcast – Check out all of the sessions from the conference entitled The Romantic Rationalist: God, Life, and Imagination in the Work of C.S. Lewis. I am confident you will find something here from reflections on the life and work of C.S. Lewis that will bless you.

Why John Stott Changed His Mind on Pacifism – Trevin Wax: “John Stott, perhaps the most important global leader in evangelicalism last century, was once a strong pacifist.” Wax shows how this pacifist became an advocate of the Just War theory.

NFL Week 4 Scores – Here are all of the scores from Week 4 in the NFL, except for of course the Monday Night Football matchup between the Miami Dolphins and the New Orleans Saints.

The heaven I desired was a heaven of holiness; to be with God, and to spend my eternity in divine love, and holy communion with Christ. –Jonathan Edwards
