B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_In my perversity, I love 10 Silly Things Christians Say. I love this piece because Jared Wilson says just what I would say. Since he doesn’t seriously engage the ideas he mentions, there is sort of an ad hominem feel to what he says. Maybe this is why I like it. Don’t just read the silly things Christians say, also get to the bottom where gentleness is encouraged.

Stephen Altrogge’s post, I’m A Calvinistic, Arminian-ish, Totally Reformed, Fully Charismatic Kinda Guy highlights some of the tensions believers struggle with. Sometimes the Bible is not an easy book to understand.

Is nudity ever appropriate in art (including movies)? William VanDoodewaard thoroughly articulates the view that it is not. I appreciate what he writes.

Perhaps this could be and honorable mention under the 10 Silly Things Christians Say. We have all heard from well intentioned believers that God won’t give us more than we can handle. Michael Hidalgo begs to differ.

Finally, this month’s free audio book is George Marsden’s A Short Life of Jonathan Edwards. This is too good to pass up.
