Bucket Drops 2/7/2014

Here are a few links from around the web over the last week or so:



  • If you missed it, here is a summary of the entire debate in 40 seconds
  • Here is another interesting video on why the Bible is the best-selling book in China. I had no idea.

A few links of interest from the internet over the past week or so:

  • This is a sober look at last night’s Grammy wedding ceremony, which included homosexual couples as well as a variety of other relationships.  Denny Burk comments on that here in What Macklemore Got Wrong and Right




  • Christianity isn’t a sweater to be taken on and off like a Mr. Rogers sweater.  Any “pastor” who denys Christ for the sake of trying another religion, including atheism, is liable to the eternal judgment of Christ.  Not because he left the faith, but because it would be likely he never had true saving faith to begin with.  Christian “Pastor” tries out atheism

The video below is from a father who lost his fight with cancer January 7,2014 and left a message to his young daugther. After watching this I’m left saying the following, “Father forgive me for ever taking a minute of breath for granted, a day with my wife and daughter as a given, or health as a right; may I always look to you for sustainment; may you grant me the grace necessary to not only live well, but more importantly to die well.”

Bucket Drops 1/8/14

Bucket drops is a series of blog posts I started awhile back to highlight some of the more interesting news stories and their impact on the Christian worldview.  With the new year, it seemed like a good time to re-start the series.

1. An interesting article on a shift of positions on alcohol occurring within evangelicalism: Dealing with alcoholism, my interview with anonymous pastor

2. On the Calvinist Revival.  Surprising that this piece shows up in the NY Times. It could have positive or negative consequences, only time will tell. But sometimes the saying there is “no bad press” is true. For the record, I do not consider myself a neo-calvinist.

3. Modalism in the SBC? As a member of an SBC church, this is concerning. The elephant is in our room

4. Finally, an upcoming debate (Feb. 4) between Bill Nye “The Science Guy” and Ken Ham from Answers in Genesis has been making its rounds through the internet.  The videos below are interesting precursors.
