Honey, I Shrunk the Lake of Fire! and other random thoughts ...

No, the Lord hasn't taken me home, just been busy! Here are a few things to check out ...

Dan Phillips responds to N.T. Wright's heretical teaching on hell (i.e. that it's not a literal place of eternal torment) by asking some probing, Biblical questions. N.T. Wright is very popular, so this is timely and needed.

On a related note, Aimee and I led the 1st thru 3rd graders in worship during church Sunday. Our curriculum is Desiring God's children's church curriculum, The ABC's of God. Last week was "R" is for Righteous. This week, "W" is for Wrath. That's right. The wrath of God (Rom 1:18, Nahum 1:6, Gen 19:24-28, Psalm 18:7-8). Talk about preaching the whole counsel of God! Did we 'shrink' away from this? I don't think so. Funny thing is the kids completely understand this concept! One sharp boy, Ethan, could recount almost every detail of the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah. They get it. They haven't been diluted by years of soft, one-sided preaching (i.e. Warren, Osteen).

Andy Naselli has put together an incredible wealth of resources of the published works of D.A. Carson. Shrinking Carsons brain by 1/25th of its size would result in my intelligence on a good day! If you're a Carson fan and missed Justin Taylor's post a few weeks back, enjoy ...

Finally, a picture.

Not too long ago one of Myles's croc's ended up going through the dryer. Now one shoe is about 3 sizes smaller than the other one. No worries, though, he already outgrew the unshrunk one!

FYI - I plan to resume the Cross-Centered Life quotes soon. It's been a crazy couple of weeks!
