Here's today's assortment. Come back for updates through to noon, Texas time.
- I gave each of our children their first driving experience. Thankfully, it never went like this.
- Pyro readers will want to note this review of two recent books on the "New Apostolic Reformation" — which is neither new, apostolic, nor a reformation.
- Some good advice for helping yowwens profit from the sermon, from Erik Raymond.
- Want to hear what a man sounds like who thinks he's serving Jesus by being smarter than the Bible, who literally recoils in horror at the suggestion of preaching what the Bible directly and actually says? Then you want to read this interview with the late Robert Schuller.
- Very, very fine article on The Dead End of Sexual Sin by Rosaria Butterfield.

- Even a "Reformed Episcopalian" wonders, "Is an organization committed to unity around the Gospel in danger of losing the Gospel?"
- Bakers must be forced to create cakes with messages that violate their beliefs and consciences. Well, unless the customers are Christians. Duh.
- DBTS' Mark Snoeberger writes on Mosaic capital crimes in What Shall We Do with Moses?
- Aimee Byrd notes Kevin DeYoung noting that marriage and kids isn't all that.
- This is brutal and infuriating reading, but provides a perfect example of what happens when morality is defined in terms of what each individual feels and thinks and believes. Thanks once again, California.
- This presuppositionalist thinks that a bit of Lutheran satire on Richard Dawkins is actually pretty wonderful. I've watched it again and again; you will, too.
- Today's Yes...But Why?!! award goes to:
- Added to my BibleWorks notes: m'man Denny Burke has an article in JETS on whether homosexual attraction is sinful. Denny's one of those folks who I can recommend as worth reading even before reading the piece. Here's the post in which he announces it and a forthcoming book.
- David Murray, a living, breathing icon of productivity whose days must contain at least 147 hours, provides a list of book deals, and much else besides.
- Among the "much else"is this very powerful pro-life video, from Texas (you're welcome!) Alliance for Life. Watch it through. I teared up. God grant their goal.
They scream at us for using the slippery slope argument, as they speed by on their snowboards.
