Evocative Greek Word

I count it all rubbish, if you know what I mean.

Cheers to Adrian Davis from Biola’s The Chimes.

I would like to take this opportunity to both affirm #9, but denounce #7. No greater turn-off than the pre-emptive or too-soon DTR.

File Under: Every freshman’s thinking in, might as well call it like it is.

Jared from ChristiansInContext.org reviews “Did the Resurrection Happen?” by Gary Habermas, Resurrection scholar, and Anthony Flew, long-time avowed atheist, who only recently recanted his atheist position for that of a theist (deist possibly?) one.

Samoa becomes the first country since the 1970’s to go from driving on the right side of the road, to the left.

Great grand-daddy Darwin.

Darwin’s great granddaughter seeks to retrace the famed naturalist’s journey.

File Under: My great grandfather was a steeler. Retracing his steps sounds tiring.

The Role of Women at Dinner Parties.

leave a comment »

I’m sitting at dinner, at a table full of friends, not least of which are two new ones. A man and a woman, whom I’d met that night. The one woman had been in ministry for some time, the man was a grad student at Fuller.

They both, although predominantly the Fuller guy, begin talking about the role of women in the church. He especially grows more and more excited at the historical injustice, “The attributes of God transcend…” this, and “cultural context” that.

I’m not sure that I entirely disagree with him. But this was neither a time nor a place to be even handed, nor to engage in meaningful dialogue of ideas for the edification of the Body.

So when the conversation had more or less moved on, I finally opened my mouth, to lean in and say, “I just want you both to know, that despite the fact that I haven’t said much during this conversation, doesn’t mean I don’t hate women. I do. But I hate them all equally.”

File Under: You only get to make a first impression once.

Bauckham is unbelievable.

leave a comment »

Richard Bauckham, author of Jesus and the Eyewitnesses and former professor of New Testament at St. Andrews, debates James Crossley. Worth the listen if you’re yet to hear anything by Bauckham.
