Worth the Read (6/8)

As a pastor I do a lot of reading on a lot of topics from a lot of sources.  I began to realize lately that perhaps I should be passing these readings along to you.  So each Friday – Lord willing – I will assemble sort of a “Best Of” reading list, highlighting some of the stuff that’s come across my desk (or screen) this week.  Enjoy!

15 Things Wives Should Stop Doing – What do your words and actions say to your husband about your love for him?  by Mary May Larmoyeux.

Ugly Dies – by Doug Wilson.  On the topic of killing the “old self.”  Dietrich Bonhoeffer said that when Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.  This is a good reminder on the meaning of taking up our cross and following Christ.

Why Obamacare Fails to Get God’s Vote – by Bill Blankshaen.  This article (or series of articles) discusses the Affordable Healthcare Act of the Obama administration from and covenantal perspective.  Its interesting, and perhaps looks at the debate from a perspective many have not considered.

North Dakota Woman Marries Herself – from the Huffington Post.  One wonders if this isn’t just a gag, but it has all the makings of a real story.  It only serves to demonstrate how important it is that the church take an active role in defending the Biblical teaching that marriage is ordained by God for one man and one woman.

By What Standard – an excerpt from the documentary called Collision, where Douglas Wilson debated Christopher Hitchens on Is Christianity Good for the World?

And Finally,

A friend on Facebook linked this video, and it just has to be shared again.  Sing along, you know you want to.
