‘The Bluffer’s guide to heresy’
I love what they did for ‘The Bluffer’s Guide to Christian Doctrine’.
BETTER BIBLE TEACHING!
“I hear many people looking for churches with ‘good teaching’, but I am yet to hear anyone seeking a church that is committed to ‘doing the Bible stuff’.” wow!

a little bit of “science” wouldn’t hurt 🙂
Jim Wallis: If It’s Not Good News, It’s Not Evangelical
I hope Jim Wallis comes to visit Malaysia soon for some interaction 🙂
Interview with Gregory Macdonald – The Evangelical Universalist, part 1
Looks like this is going to stretch me … I’ve just finished coffee. Must do some lectio divina before plunging into “active” thinking and doing!
Conversations with Conrad Gempf
I’ll be eavesdropping on the interviews. “…one of the problems: many contemporary Christian leaders are still fighting the battles of the 1960s — a disconnected buried-in-their-bibles Christianity — instead of confronting today’s Christianity — connected, but with underdeveloped roots.”
The Tension between the “Pastoral Context” and the “Missional Context”

i enjoyed the interview with the Evangelical Universalist guy…esp his ‘criteria’ about whether his views were ‘dangerous’ assuming they were wrong:
– does it lead people to reject the Trinity? No
– does it lead people to underestimate how serious sin is? Nein
– does it lead people to throw out any elements in the creeds? Niet
– does it downplay the role of Christ and his cross and resurrection in salvation? Non
– does it encourage unholy living? does it undermine the importance of trusting Christ? Does it undercut the role of Scripture? does it dull our love for God? No! Nein! Niet! and Non!
