Weekly Wrap (24/03)

by Joel Hawting | @jhawting

Tim Keller talks in this video about how Christians should treat Homosexual people. This has caused a bit of controversy so have a look and see what you think! (Apologies for the poor quality of the video.)

Why Serving The Common Good Isn't Good Enough - "Serving the common good isn't enough by itself. But when Christians illumine the motivations for neighbor love with the gospel story, actions become rich symbols of the reign of God in the world." Jeff Haanen writes a thoughtful piece for the Gospel Coalition on why serving alone just is not good enough.

Islam & Christianity: Major Differences - "Those who argue that Islam and Christianity are quite similar really know very little about either religion... To believe in one means you cannot believe in the other. Each one rules out the other." Bill Muehlenberg writes a fantastic article outlining the major differences between Islam and Christianity which is well worth a read.

The Reason Darwin Left The Faith - C Michael Patton from the Parchment & Pen Blog writes an interesting piece exploring Charles Darwin and his experience with suffering, pain and the Christian faith.

9 Reasons You Can Face Anything - Yet another great article from Jonathan Parnell, content strategist at Desiring God.

The Jesus Way vs. The American Way - "We can’t gather a God-fearing, God-worshipping congregation by cultivating a consumer-pleasing, commodity-oriented congregation. When we do, the wheels start falling off the wagon... We can’t suppress the Jesus way in order to sell the Jesus truth. The Jesus way and the Jesus truth must be congruent." Eugene Peterson - author of the Message translation - provides an excerpt from his new book The Jesus Way.

Thought for the day...

"Don't be so quick to jump to the celebration of His resurrection. Take time. Pray. Reflect. Walk with Christ over the last week of his life."
