Digest 03/04/2011

Posted: March 4, 2011 in Digests

I’m posting this morning from my Android’s WordPress app because my mom and I are heading to the lake to do some fishing before the rain hits this afternoon. It has been in the 60’s and 70’s here in Southwest Missouri for the last week or so, so the lake temperatures are just beginning to rise. Hopefully it will be productive fishing.

Israel, Arabs, and the Family of God — Over against dispensationalist attitudes, John Piper gives what I believe to be a much more biblical perspective to the Israeli/Arab disputes in the Middle East. Our primary concern, he says, is fair treatment of fellow Christians–both Arab and Israeli–and not preservation of the secular state of Israel, per se.

The Rob Bell Circus — If you’re familiar with the world of theoblogy at all, you’ve probably heard about the recent controversy concerning the promo video for Rob Bell’s new book, Love Wins. I have chosen to reserve my opinions and prejudgments until I read the book, and I think Michael Patton’s thoughts most closely reflect my own at this point.

Sorry for such a brief post. I hoped to have more links this morning, but I am at the lake so the rest will have to wait.

Tolle lege!
