12.  R.C. Sproul, Jr. on Conquering the World

Thomas Aquinas was a great gift to the church. He stands among the greatest minds the world has ever known. This doesn’t mean, of course, that he did not have his flaws, one of which goes to the heart of his intellectual labors. He saw it as his goal to synthesize the wisdom of Aristotle with the wisdom of the Bible. Now, Aristotle was no intellectual slouch either. That said, Thomas’ goal ought to immediately raise flags for us. Even a dummy like me can see: why would anyone want to synthesize the Bible with anything? What does the Bible lack that Aristotle brought to the table? The Bible is sufficient to tell us that the Bible is sufficient. We don’t need Aristotle — or Aquinas — to remind us that at the end of the day we don’t need Aristotle or Aquinas. What we need is the Bible.

Read the rest.

13.  Medical consequences of homosexuality

14.  Do you trust the abbreviated Jesus?  Great thoughts from Michael Spencer!

I’m getting the feeling that we’re talking about a kind of “mini-Jesus.” A diluted, declawed, demoted savior who is a symbolic representation for a kind of anemic, watered-down, unBiblical, culturally acceptable Jesus.

I get the feeling that if you move beyond the standard biographical paragraph, you’re going to discover that the Jesus you’re hearing about has considerably less to say than Jesus as we meet him in the Gospels.

  7. I thought the sign (Item #20)was rather funny.

    I wonder of Joseph would have agreed, who had to become a slave before he got things right with God.

    I’m sure you’re right about Job…

    I wonder if Jeremiah would have agreed, who was called from his mother’s womb to a very difficult and unrewarding job.

    And how about Saul? He had to be peeled off the Damascus road. I’ll bet he didn’t think God was a gentleman!

    I’m waaay to Calvinistic to be feelin’ that sign!
