Janet Interviews Mark Driscoll - YouTube

Interesting interview: Janet Interviews Mark Driscoll - YouTube

From Mars Hill Church website:  Media FAQ | Mars Hill Church:
Yes. If you don’t cite him, you are plagiarizing. If you use content from one of Pastor Mark’s sermons or from one of his books, you need to attribute the content (whether it is a quote or paraphrase) to Pastor Mark. Also, even though we make transcripts available of our sermons, this does not mean you can take the transcript and deliver the sermon as though it is your own. This too is plagiarism.
The same answer applies to your use of sermon content from any other pastors and any of our blog posts."

Piper on Pastors’ Pay

Great interview with Piper. I love his attitude: Piper on Pastors’ Pay – The Gospel Coalition Blog:
I received modest honorariums of one or two hundred dollars for weddings and funerals. I accepted these with thanks. I did suspect that, if I was faithful, income would rise, and sooner or later I would make more than I needed. Therefore, I believed from the beginning that plans should be in place to put a governor on laying up treasures on earth.

Atheists Don't Get God

Dawkins also argues against a complex god, which has no impact on Orthodoxy as they have held him to be simple. If only they and their readers knew historical arguments: RealClearReligion - Atheists Don't Get God:
"It is not so much that Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins disagree with Thomas Aquinas on the existence of God; it is that neither Hitchens nor Dawkins has any real grasp of what Aquinas even means when he speaks of God."

Proper Passion: A Lesson from Trent

A nice little historical story from Trent: Proper Passion: A Lesson from Trent – The Gospel Coalition Blog:
"It is possible, however, for passion to become a liability. Indeed, unbridled passion may spin out of control and inadvertently frustrate the purpose for which it was intended. "

Thom Rainer’s 5 Stages of Pastoral Ministry

Quite a good summary of ministry stages: Thom Rainer’s 5 Stages of Pastoral Ministry:
"Pastoral tenure matters. It is far too short in many churches."

The Emperor Has No Clothes. Turns Out He’s a Girl

Marriage equality is full of hate: The Emperor Has No Clothes. Turns Out He’s a Girl. | Blog & Mablog:
"Twoism is a virulent form of hatred, and is worse than all the -isms we have successfully combated up to this point. But as bad as it is, they were actually celebrating it in an ad in an airport. Seattle is supposed to be an enlightened city. Starbucks started there."

Four Reasons the Gospels Could Not Be Legends

Four Reasons the Gospels Could Not Be Legends | J.D. GREEAR:
"The most popular theory today against the Bible is that the gospels are a bunch of myths and legends. As the theory goes, Jesus was a great guy with some commendable teachings, but the stories we have about him in the four gospels are made-up legends intended to beef up Christianity’s claims."
