Each week, there are hundreds upon thousands of blog posts written by people all over the world. I find myself each week reading a few of them. Last Saturday, I took the time to share some of my favorite blog posts from around the blogosphere from the previous week. Today, I want to do the same. Who knows? Maybe one or two of these stories will be an encouragement to you.
- The State of Preaching by Tim Challies. In this short post, Challies highlights five points relevant to the downgrade of biblical preaching that was shared by Al Mohler in an article in 2006. The thing is, those five points are as relevant today as they were back then.
- The Value of Pastoral Lunches with Members by Eric Raymond. Anyone from CBC want to do lunch this next week?
- Southern Baptists and Salvation: It's Time to Talk by Albert Mohler. There was a lot of buzz in the blogosphere this past week on a document that was put out by some in the Southern Baptist Conference against the doctrines of Calvinism. I think Mohler's response to it is right on!
- Preachers on Preaching by Nathan Buzenitz. He gives ten reminders to preachers on the topic of preaching, but he does so through the use of quotes from some famous preachers. Even if you are not a preacher, but a listener, you might like to read a bit about what your preacher is called to be and do.
- Please Stop Killing Me With Your Statistics by Stephen Altrogge. This is an honest response to the millions of statistics that are told of the millions of people that are dying of hunger, millions being aborted, and so on. He says, I'm not told to love a statistic, but my neighbor. Helpful.
