his weekend GraceLife sponsored a family conference. Between Saturday and Sunday, I spoke a total of five times (plus a Q&A session), and that's why there was no BlogSpotting post Saturday. Here is an abbreviated make-up post. These are by no means all the links we could cite from this week, but it's as much as I can do at the end of a loooooooong weekend:
- According to Ilona at "Truegrit," Dan Phillip's post "What prayer is and isn't" made her angry. She posts a lengthy remonstration in an attempt to correct the "acute instances of error" in Dan's post.
- On the other hand, Kim from Hiraeth liked the post and has kind words about Dan.
- Jim Rector also liked that post and recommended that his readers check us out.
- Scotty Burness has fixed his template.
- Don Fields decries the "mall-ification" of the church and the merchandising of religion. He's careful to explain that he's not specifically singling out Frank Turk's Pawn shopthough he was thoughtful enough to give Frank a link. It might be some comfort to Don and others to know that Frank doesn't actually sell much PyroGear. If the Pawn shop ever started to turn a serious profit, we would de-link it. This is not a commercial venture.
- Fred Butler, on the other hand, has the kind of entrepreneurial instinct that could earn someone a fortune.
- Eric Rung had a great post on "The Pervasive Nature of False Teaching." He's looking forward to the interview with John MacArthur on the "Emerging Church Movement."
- David Carlson made two posts this week implying that Ingrid Schlueter is the anonymous person I was describing who threatened to publish a "news brief" accusing John MacArthur of secretly advocating "contemplative spirituality." She wasn't, and I went out of my way to stress that fact in my post about "Guilt by Association." For those who wondered why I made such a point of saying that post was not about "Slice of Laodicea," there you have it.
- Neal Shay gets my wife to try her hand at writing a guest blogpost. She's as wonderful as ever, but not likely to take up professional blogging.
- Colin Maxwell celebrates his blogiversary by blogging in tongues.
- I'm really glad to see Deathrow Bodine back at his blog. Here he remarks on our fear of the "slippery slope" and the very real danger of backsliding.
That's all I can do for now. I need to get some rest.
