Destinations

March 5, 2012

Every now and then I run across this quote from C. S. Lewis about the risk involved in loving others. The last time I bumped into it was in reading “Surprised By Grace.” Here’s a snippet:

To love at all is to be vulnerable.  Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken.  If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal.

Here is a post by Tim Challies where he discusses the different Baptist views regarding the appropriate time to baptize a child who professes faith in Jesus. Given that I was baptized at a young age, and my appreciation for the paedobaptist view even if it isn’t my view, I’m inclined toward the “Any Age” view discussed in the post.

Since we’ve been thinking about the believer’s responsibility toward the law on Sunday mornings, the issue of tattoos has been casually bandied about. Here is a totally new take on skin art. Tattoos for Lent, what will they think of next?

How should we view last week’s tornadoes? Was it the wrath of God directed toward the particular states that experienced the fury of the cyclones? How come Hollywood was left untouched? Here John Piper offers a sane, biblical understanding of natural disasters. His insightful words apply to any tragedy.

Therefore, God’s will for America under his mighty hand, is that every Christian, every Jew, every Muslim, every person of every religion or non-religion, turn from sin and come to Jesus Christ for forgiveness and eternal life. Jesus rules the wind. The tornadoes were his.

Finally, we heard in church yesterday an encouraging word from Al Roberts. Did you know Al has a blog? He writes about the gospel and America’s need to repent. His wisdom can be found here.
