Biblical Ignorance – White Horse Inn Podcast

With Dr. Michael Horton:

In our own informal surveys conducted over the years, the majority Christians we’ve interviewed cannot name the Ten Commandments or define crucial biblical doctrines such as justification or imputation. So why is biblical ignorance so common among Christians today?

Michelle Malkin – Washington Can’t Meet the Cherrios Standard

I think it’s time we applied the same advertising standards to Washington’s legislative products that the feds apply to breakfast foods. The Food and Drug Administration rapped General Mills this week for making misleading claims about the benefits of Cheerios. The food manufacturer says the whole-grain O’s are “clinically proven to lower cholesterol.” The FDA demanded packaging changes to ensure truth-in-labeling. (Read the rest)

John Calvin – Institutes of the Christian Religion (3.2.17)

Surely, while we teach that faith ought to be certain and assured, we cannot imagine any certainty that is not tinged with doubt, or any assurance that is not assailed by some anxiety. On the other hand, we say that believers are in perpetual conflict with their own unbelief. Far, indeed, are we from putting their consciences in any peaceful repose, undisturbed by any tumult at all. Yet, once again, we deny that, in whatever way they are afflicted, they fall away and depart from the certain assurance received from God’s mercy.

Scripture sets forth no more illustrious or memorable example of faith than in David, especially if you look at the whole course of his life. Yet with innumerable complaints he declares how unquiet his mind always was.

  1. I am known for my short posts, but you did a great job distilling it down even more. Thanks for the mention and I love that you do this type of post. I am sure it is harder to come up with than just writing one out.

  2. This is actually easier than doing the Twenty Items posts, and now I can do it a little more frequently. I got this idea from Tim Challias. He does daily “Ala Carte” posts.
