A quote seen at Challies:
As to breach of unity, nothing has ever more largely promoted the union of the true than the break with the false. —C.H. Spurgeon
I’ve thought about expanding that into a blog post but haven’t had time this week. But there is a lot there in that quote.
Seen after a series of links — I can’t remember what led to it — but this article is very insightful:
Not About the Dream. Veggie Tales creator Phil Vischer realized, “I looked back at the previous 10 years and realized I had spent 10 years trying to convince kids to behave Christianly without actually teaching them Christianity” and “We’re drinking a cocktail that’s a mix of the Protestant work ethic, the American dream, and the gospel. And we’ve intertwined them so completely that we can’t tell them apart anymore. Our gospel has become a gospel of following your dreams and being good so God will make all your dreams come true. It’s the Oprah god. So I had to peel that apart. I realized I’m not supposed to be pursuing impact, I’m supposed to be pursuing God. And when I pursue God I will have exactly as much impact as He wants me to have.”
A sign seen at our old town this week:
If you can’t make it out, the words in the red section say, “Meet Zombies from The Walking Dead.” I don’t know how safe it is to have zombies at your gun and knife show!
