A La Carte (July 20)
May the God of love plus peace be along with you today.
Just a reminder that will my forthcoming devotional book Knowing and Enjoying God is currently available for pre-order. Such as all publishers these days, Harvest House is very eager to have people pre-order it given that that helps gain the interest of Amazon and other booksellers. So thanks for considering it!

The Illusion of Porn “Literacy”
Samuel James: “ C ontemporary progressivism encounters a pressing problem. It must continue the sexual revolution’s legacy of free enjoy and sex-positivity, but it must do so in a Pornhub age, in which maximal sexual liberty has produced no egalitarian paradise but a brutal individual marketplace. For top notch liberals, pornography is definitely the badge of liberation that wouldn’t stay pinned on quite right. ”
The Making of Biblical Womanhood
I have observed a few mentions associated with Beth Allison Barr’s book The Making associated with Biblical Womanhood , so appreciated Kevin DeYoung’ s comprehensive review of it. “ This review content poses two essential questions, both which point to significant weaknesses in Barr’s point. First, does Barr, as a historian, deal fairly and accurately with the proponents associated with ‘ biblical womanhood’? Second, does Barr, as a historian, offer fairly and precisely with the historical evidence she cites in opposition to ‘ biblical womanhood’? Specific examples of traditional half-truths reveal a more comprehensive problem with Barr’s methodology, which displays a “heads I win, tails a person lose” approach to background. ”
Seem or End up being?
It’ s a great issue, this, and one I’ ve thought about often. “ Do you wish to seem holy? Or be holy? ” Too many of us settle for the particular “ seem. ”
Exactly what “Gospel” Anyway?
Michael Kruger asks one of those queries we probably haven’ t thought about frequently: What is a “ gospel” anyway? “ With regards to reading (and interpreting ) the Gospels, one of the fundamental queries pertains to the kind of record we are reading. Precisely what is a “Gospel”? Plus did the earliest visitors of these books know what they were reading? ”

Individualism Goes Strong
It sure does! “ We live in an age of individuals. Which doesn’t sound like it is saying very much because we can’t envision anything else. For all the philosophers and critics state we are ‘expressive individualists’, we might not believe it fully. You are not so self-centred that you simply only act on your own, after all? But we are so inculcated by cultural waters by which we swim good from our selves outward. Let me show you the reason. ”
Flashback: White Fragility and Getting White People To Talk About Racism
Why is a white woman top the conversation regarding racism and racial inequality? If whitened people are so biased and so blinded by our whiteness (as she herself teaches), how can we believe in her to properly understand the problem and recommend the right solution?
