weekend reads January 17Here are a few links we found interesting or worthwhile this week, and we pass them on to you for reading over the weekend.

Which promises are for me? – “Before you write it on a note card for your fridge, before you post it on Instagram or shop for it on a coffee mug or declare it your life verse, make a thorough study of where your promise lives in Scripture and in biblical history.”

Contentment, the Secret to Living Joyfully – “There was always SOMETHING in life that I felt needed to change for me to be completely happy. Little did I realize that the something was me. That something was the way I approached life.”

A Prophet for an Un-discerning Church – “I am as grateful for good coffee and cute koalas as the next guy. But the words quoted above illustrate well the utter weightlessness of contemporary evangelicalism, particularly that which is peddled to Christian women. If I were a woman I believe I would be insulted by such nauseating triviality.”

The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven – “I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention. When I made the claims that I did, I had never read the Bible. People have profited from lies, and continue to. They should read the Bible, which is enough.”
