Arguments Christians Should Not Use

I found this article, Arguments Christians Should Not Use, on the Skeptical Christian site. (Actually, I found the link on the Withering Fig blog, and followed it from there.) I think it’s a good article, so I recommend it.

I should note that I’ve never been to the Skeptical Christian site before, so I don’t know about the rest of the site, but this article at least was worth reading, so perhaps the rest is, too…

Blog Template

There’s a very good chance that I’ll be changing the template for this blog; I’ve noticed some strange things happening with it, for the last couple of days, and I think the problem is that some pieces of the template (CSS files, images, JavaScript, etc.) are hosted on someone else’s site. (See this page, from the person who created the template—or at least parts of it—for an explanation, but basically, his servers are getting overloaded.) It’s too bad, because I kind of liked this template, but I’m sure I’ll find another one that I also like.

So my main point is this: if you notice strange problems with the site, just bear with me, until I get a chance to use a new template, and hopefully they’ll go away.

Edwards on New Christians and Spiritual Growth

I found this series on the Pure Church blog, and decided to post links here.

From the first post, here’s the introduction:

On June 3, 1741, Jonathan Edwards wrote a letter to Deborah Hatheway. Mrs. Hatheway was converted during the awakening in New England and, since her church was without a pastor at the time sought Edwards’ counsel on how to grow as a new Christian. Edwards replied in a short letter with 19 things Hatheway should think and do. The letter is reprinted Michael A.G. Haykin’s A Sweet Flame: Piety in the Letters of Jonathan Edwards. For the next couple of posts, I’ll quote some of the advice that Edwards give.

And here are the actual posts in the series, from Pure Church:I found this very useful; I hope you will too.

Numbers Summary

I get the impression that a lot of people tend to skip over the book of Numbers, or just skim through it, when they’re reading through the Bible. Based on the name, I think they assume that it’s full of censuses (censii?), and, as it turns out, a lot of the material that isn’t related to a census is related to laws, which most of us find pretty boring.
