This 'n' That

My life is filled with acronyms. Industry acronyms, company acronyms, department acronyms. For those of you who are drawing a blank as to what an acronym is, here is a definition:
An abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word.
So, ASAP isn't a word in itself, but actually stands for As Soon As Possible. That is an acronym.

Perhaps many of you remember a rather popular "Christian" acronym from the early 90s: WWJD, or What Would Jesus Do? Yep, the memories are flooding back, aren't they?

Raise your hand if you wore a WWJD bracelet! I admit it, I wore one. I mean, I went to church (sometimes), so I was a Christian, and Christians have to be up on the latest Christian trends. Right? Um...yeah, maybe not.

Oh well, we all have our moments. And, in my defense, I was only a kid...and I wasn't actually a Christian.

For some reason, remembering those WWJD bracelets makes me want to go find my slap bracelets, which were popular a couple years earlier. While I go search the closet for those, why don't you take a few moments to enjoy your week in review (kind of):
  • The devastation caused by false teaching is so sad.
  • I appreciated this article by Michelle Lesley regarding women who teach co-ed groups "under the authority" of their husband or pastor. I once heard Priscilla Shirer use this excuse to introduce a teaching time at DTS. Excuses, excuses, but not biblical ones.
  • Well, I suppose it's a good start.
  • A few ways the Reformation has shaped Church history.
  • Here's your weekly dose of adorable (thanks, Amy!).
  • Scripture is our inerrant and infallible authority.
  • Who doesn't love a good book store?
  • "You never know when He'll call you to face Him."
  • In case you've forgotten, God is still speaking...in His Word!
  • This article is a nice accompaniment to this recent episode of Equipping Eve (apologies for the shameless self-promo).
  • I have to agree: people are more interesting than bacteria (although I do find bacteria rather fascinating).
  • A bit about Lady Jane Grey.
  • When does error become heresy? Where is the line?
  • I've really enjoyed John MacArthur's recent series in Philemon, on the topic of forgiveness. I'll be posting those sermons here for the next several weeks. Here is the first, "Forgiveness in the Age of Rage":
