Weekly Wrap (13/01)

by Joel Hawting | @jhawting

8 Top Christian Blog Posts of The Week: The Lou Giglio Edition - You have to have lived under a rock for the last few weeks to not have heard about the Lou Giglio saga. Dr Bob Kellemen collates the best blog posts in his opinion which explore why Lou Giglio stood down from giving the benediction at President Obama's second inauguration ceremony under intense political pressure.

The Essentials: Holiness - Tim Challies writes his nineteenth instalment in his essentials series on theological terms, and his exploration of Holiness is well worth a look.

Take Courage for God's Mission - "The problem is not that God has neglected to make promises to us or that he doesn't keep those promises. It's that either we don't believe what he says, or we're not interested in what he promises because we still love the world too much." - An excellent, though provoking post from Jonathan Leeman from the Gospel Coalition.

The Slaughter of the Innocents - "A baby is born and we love it, a baby is in the womb and we kill it." - Mark Driscoll offers his reflections on the parallels between the recent shooting atrocity at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the USA and "The slaughter of the Innocents" in Matthew chapter 2.

Pergatory: An Evangelical Doctrine? - Credo magazine's latest edition is free for download and well worth a read.

Thought for the day...

"This may test your prayers. If there is anything that Jesus would not pray for, do not dream of praying for it."
— C.H. Spurgeon
