Saturday Sampler: July 3 Through July 9

Square Face LadiesI must heartily recommend that you go to The Watchman’s Bagpipes to read Glenn Chatfield’s assessment of Rachel Held Evans and Homosexuality. Whatever you think of his tone, please consider his actual points.  All in all, this article provides an excellent rebuttal to Evans’ emotional and unbiblical response to the shooting in Orlando.

Rachel, who blogs at danielthree18, gives an impassioned and well-reasoned account of her ministry in her piece, Why I Contend. Those of us who have lost friends because we dared to speak against the teachings of Beth Moore will find encouragement through Rachel’s words.

Writing for Ligonier, Albert Mohler discusses The Sexual Revolution and the Witness of the Church. Homosexuality may be nothing new, but the militancy of the LBGTQ community certainly is.

I just love A Beautiful Thing, the blog for women that Jessica Pickowicz started this past May! Please make time to read her post entitled Devotional Theology: God’s Authoritative Word. Her message can’t be emphasized enough!

In Assisted Suicide: A Quadriplegic’s Perspective, Joni Eareckson Tada reviews the new hit movie, Me Before You, for Revive Our Hearts’ True Woman blog. I’ll most likely pass on the movie myself, since John and I already demonstrate that disabled people can live joyful lives,  but I appreciate Joni for bringing it to my attention. (Note: I’m not endorsing Revive Our Hearts by linking to this particular article.)

Stand to Reason’s Tim Barnett tackles the worn out red herring,  Jesus Said You Shouldn’t Judge, that non-Christians love to throw at us. I appreciate his skill at turning that accusation around by demonstrating how they violate that very passage.

I could have easily written Why I Am Not Continualist, but Tim Challies writes it for me. He offers Biblical reasons for rejecting Charismatic theology, supplementing them with practical observations.  I wish more Continualists would consider his points and examine Scripture to see for themselves.

Carl Trueman, in his commentary, Trouble in Bakersfield for the magazine called First Things, tells about Reformed pastor Chad Vegas resigning from the local school board rather than support transgender bathroom policies.  I admire pastor Vegas for standing on Biblical convictions,  but I grieve at our nation’s growing intolerance of those convictions.

I close with this open letter that Pastor Don Green of Truth Community Church in Cincinnati,  OH posted on his Facebook page. His boldness to stand for Biblical values in a society that now openly rejects the Lord and His Word reminds me of my reasons for starting this blog almost a year ago.
