1. Arguing does not do any good? Yes it does.
A great post by Clay Jones about the value of arguing for the truth of the Gospel. In conclusion, Clay offers this:
“[W]hat the church needs is many people trained to defend the truths of historic Christianity. Answering tough questions is a great encouragement to the church. For example, consider Acts 18:27-28: ‘When Apollos wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him. On arriving, he was a great help to those who by grace had believed. For he vigorously refuted the Jews in public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.'”

2. Three Star Night is a very interesting blog you should visit.
It is unique in the way it communicates. Read the posts, but first scroll the the imaginative ways that Jo communicates.
3. Kevin give some advice to young guys (and gals) in ministry.
“Don’t try to do too much too soon. Expect change to happen very slowly. Whenever possible, work for desired change by positive reinforcement, rather than by criticism.”
4. Here is a sign that just went up in in my neck of the woods (Okla City).
Believe it or not, but the same organization tried to put the same sign up in Las Vegas and was denied!
5. Lisa Robinson recommends this blog here for women who are looking for some theologically substantive discussion on faith and culture in relation to women’s issues.
6. I am really looking forward to this: The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach by Mike Licona.
I have not read or reviewed it, but Mike Licona is one of the best and most balanced authors in Evangelicalism today. I get whatever he puts out. Thanks Mike for the work you do.
7. Speaking of book recommendations, do you have this yet? Interpreting the New Testament Text: Introduction to the Art and Science of Exegesis
It is one of the best overviews of New Testament exegesis there is. It will be over the heads of some, but only for a chapter or two. If you are serious about exegesis, you should have this on your shelf.
8. Anyone have a Playstation 3 they want to sell at a really good rate? If you do, Facebook or email me.
Ummm…I need it for theological research.
9. Ummm. OK.
Do you have to have a special ordination?
