Lots & Lots & Lots O’ Links

So I haven’t had much time to post anything on here for a few weeks, but I’ve still been collecting links to things I find interesting, important, &/or edifying. So here’s a whole slew of things I’ve come across…

A little on the gay marriage debate to start with:

A thought on the homosexual marriage debate – Reformation21 Blog.–It is important to keep in mind Romans 1:18-32 when thinking about or discussing homosexual marriage. Let those verses influence your perspective on the subject.

Carl Trueman also has a little blurb on this subject–Around and About – Reformation21 Blog.

Along those same lines Alan Shlemon at Stand to Reason Blog asks  Is Homosexuality the Worst Sin of All?. He makes several good points, not the least of which is

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 places homosexuals among other sinners like thieves, drunks, swindlers, and fornicators. And 1 Timothy 1:8-11 lists them among liars, rebels, slave traders, and other sinners. There’s no special designation for any of these sins

Going Down? Dawkins, Doubters & Debauchery–The problem with holding staunchly to an atheist world-view is that eventually that world-view breaks down & you cannot defend your position.

The Name–We cannot make God’s name greater; it is already great.

Sanctity of Life Weekend (i.e.-the infamous anniversary of Roe v Wade)

A Short, Free eBook on Abortion – Desiring God. “God is calling passive, inactive Christians today to engage our minds and hearts and hands in exposing the barren works of darkness. To be the conscience of our culture. To be the light of the world. To live in the great reality of being loved by God and adopted by God and forgiven by Christ (yes—for all the abortions that dozens of you have had), and be made children of the light. I call you to walk as children of light.”

AlbertMohler.com – “Abortion is as American as Apple Pie” — The Culture of Death Finds a Voice. “Abortion is now America’s most common surgical procedure performed on adults”\\How very disturbing & sad…

Abort73.com / Abortion Unfiltered. A deep & accurate understanding of abortion does not exist…

MLK, Racial Harmony, Healthy Sexuality, & Tebow

Letter from Birmingham Jail – Justin Taylor. “If you read one thing today on Martin Luther King Day, make it his ‘Letter from Birmingham Jail.'”

Download Bloodlines for Free – Desiring God. I’ve almost finished listening to the audiobook version of this book from John Piper dealing with racial harmony, and I highly recommend it.

Healthy Sexuality | Challies Dot Com. In light of the current controversy regarding Mark Driscoll’s new book, here are some good resources on sex & marriage.

Does God Care Whether Tim Tebow Wins on Saturday? – Owen Strachan – Entertainment – The Atlantic. I just got around to reading this yesterday (it’s from a few days ago), & it would have been an excellent article before today; however, I think it’s even more poignant now given the outcome of the Denver game over the weekend.

The Courts & Religion, Miscarriage, Church/State, Don’t Be a Jerk, Tebow Time, and Saul/Paul

The Most Important Supreme Court Ruling on Religion in 20 Years – Justin Taylor. I think the title says it all…

Grace in Miscarriage. This is specifically about how to look to God for comfort in a miscarriage, but I think this could easily apply to any loss or trial.

Thinking Through Church and State – Kevin DeYoung. Good thoughts on the differences between Church & State.

How To Disagree Online Without Being A Total Jerk. If you have ever had an online conversation take a bad turn, you should read this.

Tebow Time: 10 Thoughts and a Cloud of Dust | The Cripplegate. I especially like the 5 concerns with Tebow-mania in this post.

Brother Saul | Challies Dot Com. Be careful never to think someone is beyond God’s grace. If Saul could be saved, anyone can be saved.
