This 'n' That

I like to think I'm pretty strong. In fact, I am fairly strong. But when it comes right down to it, most (yes, I said most) men are stronger. This was made abundantly clear to me this week when the teenage neighbor boy helped me move a rather large, extremely heavy piece of furniture. Here he is, not even able to drive yet, and he lifted it with no problem, allowing me to lift the other end as if it were merely a light box.

What's my point? God made men and women differently. It cannot be denied, and if someone attempts to deny it, well, please don't listen to anything they say about anything else because clearly they do not live in reality. Men and women were designed to be different—to be complementary—and that's okay. And it is why attempting to usurp God's ordained design will only ever end in difficulty.

It seems so simple, really, this difference between men and women. And yet the world does not see it, or rather, lives in blissful self-imposed blindness. So what do we do? Just be faithful, Christian. Be faithful to your God and you will be blessed.

Speaking of blessing, it's that time of the week again. Time to enjoy your week in review (kind of):

  • Baylor University changed the language in the its sexual misconduct policy because they "didn't believe the language reflected the university's caring community." Stand by, because Baylor will be the first of many "Christian" colleges that will compromise in this way. I have my thoughts about which institutions may be among the first to capitulate, but I'm no prophet so I'll stay quiet for now.
  • The audio for Reformation Montana 2015 has been posted. Did I mention that last week? If I didn't, I meant to, and if I did, well, this is just a friendly reminder.
  • I'm trying to decide why Charisma published this. Are they happy? Distraught? I'm not sure.
  • It's #kittenweek on Twitter, so here's your weekly dose of adorable.
  • Everyone's in a tizzy because Ed Young invited Glenn Beck to speak at his church, and instead of calling Beck to repent of his false religion, he was celebrated by Young and the congregation at Fellowship Church. So let me get this straight: we are surprised and upset that one false teacher invited another false teacher to speak at his not-remotely-Christian church? Okay.
  • And while we're talking about Ed Young, I like to throw this out every now and then to remind everyone why we cannot consider Young to be a pastor in any biblical sense of the term.
  • Sigh. Nowadays, "bullying" is essentially hurting someone's feelings because you disagree with them. Oh well. Stand strong and confident in Christ, Christian!
  • Pastor John MacArthur offers hope for a doomed nation:
