Russell Moore on the “ignorance” of Jesus, Darryl Dash on the TGC convictions, Richard Mouw on Rob Bell issue, and et cetera.
1. Yes, Jesus Ignores Me: The Irritating Unschedulability of Christ (Russell Moore) – Does it seem that Jesus is ignoring you? Watch Moore as he preaches on John 11:1-44.
2. Challenges Facing The Gospel Coalition (Darryl Dash) – Dash blogs to the people who hold to the convictions of The Gospel Coalition. I find this very helpful.
4. The Orthodoxy of Rob Bell (Richard Mouw) – Mouw, president of Fuller Theological Seminary, defends Rob Bell. This is interesting.
3. The Rapper in Rehab (Jonathan Sprowl) – Sprowl interviews Christian rapper Lecrae.
5. Why We All Need the Gospel (Francis Chan) – Chan preaches on the churches at Sardis and Laodicea. Is our reputation greater than our character? Are we lukewarm?

7. The Key Trait of Successful Teachers (Will Bankston) – Bankston writes about teaching. Humility is crucial to good teaching. He states, “A good teacher must always be learning, a process best facilitated by a natural wonder and reverence for the world around us.” This blog will be helpful to teachers, present and aspiring.
8. Must a Pastor Be Married? The New York Times Asks the Question (Albert Mohler) – Mohler writes on the advantages of being a married pastor and argues biblically. An interesting article.
9. ‘That’s Odd’: On Bias Against Single Pastors (Steve DeWitt) – DeWitt, a single pastor, writes on the topic of pastoral singleness. He strikes a balance. Another interesting article on the same topic.
?. The Theology of Sleep! (John MacArthur) – MacArthur preaches for the Together for the Gospel (T4G) 2010 Conference, on Mark 4. He does a good exposition. Our task is to sow and…sleep! And we must do it humbly, obediently, diligently, and confidently.
