This 'n' That

Well, it's Valentine's Day and you know what every good five-pointer likes to receive on Valentine's Day, don't you? That's right, tulips.

Oh, but I haven't forgotten my Arminian friends. This card's for you:

Well, now that I've either made you chuckle or offended you, why don't you take a moment to sit back, smell the tulips, and enjoy your week in review (kind of):
  • Steve Lawson on why it is necessary to preach the wrath of God.
  • What do Mother Theresa and Hitler have in common?
  • I wrote last year about The Clergy Project, a group designed to give clergy of various faiths a "safe place" to question and doubt their faith. One pastor joined that group and now has revealed that he is an atheist.
  • Students at Wheaton College were upset that the school allowed Rosaria Butterfield to speak to the student body. Butterfield is a former lesbian whose book, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert, tells the tale of her conversion to Christianity.
  • Investing in your crown of exultation.
  • You can thank reader Rick for providing your weekly dose of adorable.
  • Ken Ham's response to Bill Nye's Facebook-issued challenge.
  • Nothing says 'Happy Valentine's Day' like murdering your unborn child. This is a disgusting display of depravity.
  • Michael Kruger on the book of Revelation's journey into the canon.
  • Steven Furtick's new book crashes and burns on the issue of biblical inspiration.
  • Hey, look, Furtick made local headlines in Charlotte.
  • The only thing sadder than this headline is the fact that I'm not at all surprised by it.
  • Pastor Don Green is running a series of posts on his Facebook page on the topic of homosexuality. I urge you to follow along as he examines the issue from a biblical perspective. Start here. Then read this, this and this.
  • John MacArthur preaches on the pathology of false disciples. This is only one sermon in a multiple-part series. If you're able to listen to all of the messages, I encourage you to do so.


  1. It's always simultaneously hurtful and comforting to say "They went out from us, because they were not of us." 1 John 2.19

  2. Okay.....a huge thanks to the Donut Church link. That was priceless.

    You gave us a good chuckle on the Valentine's Day options. haha. You are so clever.

    Hope you are staying warm sis! As always, a huge hat tip for all the hard work done on This and That.
