Weekly Wraps (November 7-13)
Mark Driscoll on Mixed Martial Arts, Chris Castaldo on Lady Gaga, Carolyn McCulley on singleness, and et cetera
1. A Christian Evaluation of Mixed Martial Arts (Mark Driscoll) – Driscoll blogs on MMA. This is interesting, since I love MMA.
2. The Passion of Gaga (Chris Castaldo) – Castaldo blogs on Lady Gaga.
3. How to Serve “The Singles” — Ministry to Unmarried Adults in Your Local Church (Carolyn McCulley) – McCulley offers insights on singleness to church leaders. She wisely writes: “So to help unmarried adults meet and marry well, the church needs to be proactive about creating contexts for singles to meet each other and live out dating relationships in the context of community.”
4. How Is the Bible Without Error? (Jonathan Parnell) – Parnell quotes John Piper on the inerrancy of the Bible.
5. Does Joel Osteen Not Know, or Does He Not Care? (Albert Mohler) – Mohler blogs on Joel Osteen and Mormonism. He concludes: “Joel Osteen told The Washington Times that he is constantly “looking for new ways to influence the culture.” Our culture admires those with low theological commitment and high emphasis on attitude. In Joel Osteen’s case, it is the secular culture that has influenced the minister, and not the minister that is influencing the culture.”
