Roadkill

Roadkill on the Information Super Highway

Here are some creatures I ran over this week. They were good!

From the news coverage of Falwell’s death, I began to suspect his first name was “Whether You Agree With Him or Not.”

Even Falwell’s fans, such as evangelist Billy Graham and former President Bush, kept throwing in the “We didn’t always agree” disclaimer. Did Betty Friedan or Molly Ivins get this many “I didn’t always agree with” qualifiers on their deaths? And when I die, if you didn’t always agree with me, would you mind keeping it to yourself?

Let me be the first to say: I ALWAYS agreed with the Rev. Falwell.

  • Check out this “free online touch typing speed test“. On my third attempt I scored 66 wpm with no errors. (HT: Timmy Brister)
  • My brother returned to blogging after a brief hiatus.
  • Jonathan Moorhead spoke at our church while in East Tennessee last weekend.
  • My dad started a very promising series of posts on a man named Ranulfo Coto. He lived in a remote village in Mexico with only a Bible, but he proved to be more orthodox in his beliefs than many missionaries!
  • I recently read Breaking the Missional Code by Ed Stezer and David Putman. My friend Jeff Wright also read it and posted a review with which I am in basic agreement. Given that I have been to lazy to write a review myself, please read Jeff’s review and attribute it to me. :)

These are some of the posts that stand out to me on the Internet this weekend:

  • Many will wish that Nathan Finn would have stuck to church history when they read his attack on worldliness in “Greed or No Greed?”.

Enjoy! I’m off to prepare my sermon on Matthew 3:1-12.

UPDATED: Roadkill on the Information Super Highway

Here are some interesting items that I ran across recently:

Roadkill on the Information Super Highway

For this week’s “Roadkill on the Information Super Highway”, I decided to highlight a few blogs which I have recently added to my blogroll. These are: Wisdom of the Pages (creatively named), Tim Ellsworth (not so creatively named), and The Texas Baptist Underground (aptly named). Let me mention these three in more detail now so that you will be able to understand their respective worthiness to belong on my much coveted blogroll. Anyway, I recently run across these items and I thought you all should sample some of this good roadkill!

  • First, Scott Lamb hosts Wisdom of the Pages. Along with the aforementioned creative title, this blog is making a great contribution to the online discussion from a biblio- perspective (let the reader understand). His most recent post (as of today) is a post describing “a few outstanding aspects” of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe movie. Good stuff!
  • Second, Tim Ellsworth of the not so creatively named Tim Ellsworth (But then, who am I to talk?!?!). Tim is a columnist for BP Sports. So if you want sports from a Christian perspective (as opposed to the pagan worldview over at ESPN), check him out.
  • Last but not least, James Spurgeon offers a unique perspective from the inside of one branch of the Independent Baptist movement in The Texas Baptist Underground. Sometimes funny, but always sad, these posts will give you a small glimpe of what goes on in some Independent Baptist circles if you’ve never had the “privilege” of being apart of this illustrious non-group (By non-group I mean they claim to be Independent, therefore not a group.). If you have been a part of this movement at some point, Spurgeon’s commentary on this Texas version of the IFB will help put things in perspective and perhaps provide some much needed healing. James has been recently posting on the King James Only controversy. Very good analysis of popular views among IFB’ers.

Remember, be sure to spit out the bones! (No offence Scott, Tim and James! It’s just about the roadkill motif. Understand?)
