At Least 5 Things Scripture Teaches Us About Governments – Government is one of the facts of life in this world. All of human history has shown that we need to be governed. Not surprisingly, the Bible speaks to government. Here are five things the Bible teaches us. – Tim Challies

My Take: ‘I’m spiritual but not religious’ is a cop-out – Theirs is a world of fence-sitting, not-knowingess, but not-trying-ness either. Take a stand, I say. Which one is it? A belief in God and Scripture or a commitment to the Enlightenment ideal of human-based knowledge, reason and action? Being spiritual but not religious avoids having to think too hard about having to decide. – Alan Miller

How Church Discipline Can Be Like Doctor Shopping – First of all, in Christianity, a “servant” isn’t a slur… When Tim Tebow says he wants a wife with “a servant’s heart,” he is, like any Christian man, hoping also for a woman who is seeking a husband with “a servant’s heart.” It doesn’t mean he wants a doormat. It just means he wants a Christian. – Russell Moore
