3. Morality for the Internet Age (John Starke) – Starke blogs on morality in the cyberspace. He warns, “The online sex industry offers cheap-and-easy passion.”
4. Theology, Therapy, Twitter, and the Scandal of the Gospel (Albert Mohler) – Mohler blogs on therapy as “the answer to every problem, including a moral crisis” that is now ingrained in our culture. He writes, “Sadly, many Christians have accepted this worldview as their own, believing that their own deepest problems are therapeutic rather than theological in nature. To our shame, many books written by and for evangelical Christians reflect the therapeutic impulse, rather than the appropriate biblical and spiritual concerns.” Mohler continues with an interaction on Twitter.
5. 7 Theses on “Celebrity Pastors” (Kevin DeYoung) – DeYoung blogs on “celebrity pastors” and strikes a balance. Interesting!
