BoB's for Week Ending August 19th
Pastor Mark Lauterbach over at Gospel Driven Life series on Indwelling Sin (Posts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5) were at the top of my reading list this week. Mark tends to say things that I'd like to say, and he does it in about a quarter of the words it would take me.
Pastor Mark Dever has posted about the Southern Baptist Mistake over at the Together for the Gospel blog. This prompted a supportive response from Pastor Shane Anderson that provides more detail on the issue.
Tim Challies reflects on his son's attempt to repay a gift and sees the heart of the Father.
Jonathon Moorehead and Dan Phillips dissect the recent Billy Graham article in Newsweek and see that Charles Finney's shadow still looms large over the popular American brand of "Christianity".
Phil Johnson opens up a can of worms and discusses the popular tendency to declare people guilty by association, even when there really is no association.
Less serious posts find Kim Riddlebarger aping Jeff Foxworthy with "You know you're not reformed if ..." and Purgatorio reviewing Snakes on a Plane.
Addendum: The following isn't technically a blog post, but John Piper has a good statement about Talking to People Rather than about Them over at the Desiring God website.
