“Society’s view of a Forty-Year-Old Virgin is Steve Carrell. Christianity’s view of a forty-year-old virgin should be Dietrich Bonhoeffer.” –Trevin Wax
Not everything has to be seen through the same lens. Review of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s new biography here.
Tomorrow is Sunday (my apologies for those in an advanced time zone). On Sunday mornings, Christians normally gather to worship.
This message is for men, especially young men:
Look at yourself in the mirror. If your shirt has a logo, saying, or phrase on it, please change out of it. At least look at it and ask yourself, “If I were for some reason called to the front of the assembly, would the words on this shirt be an embarrassment to me, the church, or to Jesus?” “Can I say these words out loud from the pulpit of this church?”
If not, change the shirt. Then discard it. Whatever you can’t say in a worship assembly you shouldn’t be saying anywhere else, either.
Appropriate for the Events of Pride Week (Month).
Given the confusion that has apparently arisen from gross Biblical illiteracy, I thought this article cuts to the chase pretty well. As the stone of “Pharisee” is cast, however, please take care to understand what a Pharisee was, and the nature of Jesus’ complaint against that group.
