From the blog this week: 6 Reasons Christians Should be Readers
“We know this to be true on a cosmic, grand scale. But is it true for our twenty-four-hour days? If God is the Alpha and the Omega of our universe, why should his Word not be the Alpha and the Omega of our Tuesday? ”
“Those of us who don’t enjoy conflict come up with a bevy of rationalizations to avoid the difficult conversation we know deep down we ought to have. Maybe we’ll make it worse. We might hurt someone’s feelings. It might “change the relationship,” so to speak. Or we just don’t want someone to get angry with us.”
“We have a tendency to distract ourselves from Christ towards many good things, doctrines for instance, that might take away from Christ. Jesus becomes just one brick in the wall of our system rather than, as Spurgeon saw him, the sun in the solar system of our theology and thinking.”
“Every child is meant to enter this world into a family made up of a man and woman bound by marriage. This kind of family provides the setting, the stability, and the sense of belonging in which a child can best thrive. Family is meant to provide the primary network of love and care that will welcome people into this world, nurture them to adulthood, and love them for a lifetime.”
