Jerry Falwell dead at 73

Jerry Falwell was found unconscious in his office earlier this morning.
He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:40pm
Eastern Time. His beliefs were polarizing for both Christians and
non-Christians. Whether you agreed with his theology or not does not
matter. He was a man who sought to follow Jesus as he believed right.
He is now with the Lord, along with believers of past ages now asleep,
awaiting the day when Christ returns. It is the day we all long for. It
is the day of resurrection. It is the day of great hope for those who,
through repentance and faith, belong to Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ.

May God move in us all to work out our salvation with fear and
trembling, to daily repent of our sin, to ever trust in Christ alone
for our eternal hope, and find our names written in the Lamb’s book of

Lord have mercy.
Christ have mercy.

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Celtic Christianity Library

At times, it’s good to let the mind wander enough when searching the Internet that you click random links on regularly visited sites. Today’s foray lead me to a blog post titled “The Celtic Christian’s Hobbit,” which links to “The Voyage of St. Brendan“.

The story is part of a collection at The Celtic Christianity e-Library. For me, that’s like hitting the mother lode. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

Sharin’ Some Bible Love

I’ve been talking up the ESV to a lot of people lately, and I use it often online. Of all the Bible versions out there, the ESV people “get it” when it comes to online publishing. They also have a wealth of printed options that tempt me to part with more hard earned cash.

But I don’t want to forget one of the other versions I use often, the NET Bible. They have a good web site, and their footnotes are unparalleled.

Now that I’m beginning to learn Greek, I’m looking at more Bible options. For now, I’m happy to have my Greek NT open along side my English Bibles, but I recommend both of these if you want to study from the Greek:

What is the Value of a Human Life?

According to the New York Times, 90% of pregnant women who learn that their baby has Down Syndrome abort their babies.

I’m suspicious of statistics like this, but if true, I have to ask: Have we really become so selfish that we place so little value on human life? May God have mercy on our souls.

Liberation Theology

Ben Witherington gives a nice summary of Liberation Theology, and discusses a better approach to caring for the poor among us, with a great object lesson from the Amish.

Do you really want to be a pastor?

If asked, my answer is yes. I can think of no greater calling or vocation than to be a disciple of Jesus tasked with the job of making disciples. Even so, it is not to be undertaken lightly, and anyone considering the vocation should read Joe Thorn’s post: “So, you’re thinking of being a pastor?“.

(UPDATE: Joe has a follow-up post.)
