This piece is just funny. It answers the ageless question, Are Veggie Dogs just as good as real hot dogs?. I think you know the answer.

So I had to try one. Of course. Because I am nothing if not stubborn. All I can say is Mmmm, yummy. The texture was reminiscent of custard wrapped in a latex balloon, and it tasted like paste. There’s not enough mustard and onion in the world to make that thing palatable.

Tullian wrestles with Ted Turner’s famous pronouncement: Christianity is the Religion for losers. Yep, Ted was right.

It is sooooo easy to be judgmental, especially in areas of little or no importance. Luma tracks her pilgrimage in this area.

When it comes to secondary (non-sin) issues we are tempted to strain gnats and swallow camels (Matt. 23:24). Jesus said, “Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’…” (Matt. 9:13) and “And if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless” (Matt. 12:7).

I grieve in my spirit when I remember how I have condemned the guiltless.

Randy Alcorn writes about the importance of Sabbath both in this life and the life to come. Here is his concluding paragraph:

God rested on the seventh day, before sin entered the world. He prescribed rest for sinless Adam and Eve, and he prescribed it for those under the curse of sin. Regular rest will be part of the life to come in the new universe. (Wouldn’t it be wise to learn how to rest now?)

It is amazing what people can do with a cello.
