Around the Blog in 80 Seconds

The best statement on the blog I've read so far this week:
If I am committed to my sin above a humble, self-revealing honesty, then I can't rely on any accountability structure or loving friendships to expose my sin and protect my soul. I must remember that if I am to war against sin, I must labor to be embarassingly transparent.

I'd hate to be this guy: Oops! Techie wipes out $38 billion fund.

Humble Orthodoxy offers a helpful look at how to evaluate books before recommending them to others and ruining their souls. See here.

DG reprints an earlier article from Piper called "Being Loved and Being Hated." A brief excerpt: "Would you pray with me that hundreds among us would embrace being hated for the sake of love? If your driving motive in life is to be liked and loved, you will find it almost impossible to be a Christian. "

And from the DG blog, a listing of provoking and helpful quotes regarding television and our spiritual lives.

And Dan Edelen at Cerulean Sanctum wants to know what ever happened to the Holy Spirit in the church.

Thabiti,

Thanks for this post. Regarding the television post, I suggest folks read David Wells' book, "No Place for Truth." It is the first in his series of four. In this book, Wells brilliantly lays out what the television has done not just to humanity writ large but to the Evangelicals as well. It is excellent analysis and convicting. Turn it off! The overwhelmingly vast majority of humanity lived without it!
