The "Evangelical Manifesto" and Other Stuff from Around the Web

links%2011.jpgFrom the recent discussion going on over at Augsburg 1530, it sure doesn't look like the LCMS will be bringing back Todd Wilken and Jeff Schwarz.  In fact, the replacement LCMS/KFUO host has been talking about a sermon series on sex (given during Lent).  Boggles the mind. 

Lets hope Todd and Jeff reappear soon with a listener-sponsored program which is no longer beholden to the LCMS/ABlaze folk.  To read all about it,  Click here: Augsburg1530

Be forewarned, the "Evangelical Manifesto" is coming next week.  According to a news release, "the declaration, scheduled to be released Wednesday in Washington, encourages Christians to be politically engaged and uphold teachings such as traditional marriage. But the drafters say evangelicals have often expressed `truth without love,' helping create a backlash against religion during a `generation of culture warring.'  `All too often we have attacked the evils and injustices of others,' they wrote, `while we have condoned our own sins.' They argue, `we must reform our own behavior.'"  We'll see who signs it, and whether or not it is clear about the two kingdoms.  I won't get my hopes up.  Click here: 'Evangelical Manifesto' Ponders Politics - AOL News

The URCNA finally has its own website.  Not much to look at, but sure better than nothing!  Click here: URCNA.ORG

Finally, the proprietor of this blog has been known to enjoy a good beer on occasion.  That is why I appreciate lists such as the one which can be found here.  Nothing better than a good beer.  Nothing worse than a bad one.  Click here: The world's 10 most disgusting beers - St. Petersburg Times

Fortunately, we've seen the rise in popularity of "craft" breweries (micro-breweries taken to the next level) in recent years and they are producing some outstanding products. One in the Chicago suburbs called "Two Brothers Brewery" makes what I consider to be some of the finest beers available anywhere. Check 'em out at and see if you can find their products at a local specialty shop. In particular, their Domaine DuPage Ale (a French country ale) is to die for...

Frankly I do feel the American evangelicals in my lifetime have indeed "often attacked the evils and injustices of others, while we have condoned our own sins". It is much easier to do, you know.

In my experience National Day of Prayer for example has often become "let's pray about the sins of the world around us in the USA [maybe even pray down some judgment", but of course, what we evangelicals have frequently and conveniently overlooked is the Scriptural truth that 'judgment begins in the house of the Lord'.

Having said all of that, my primary concern will be to see if this creed / statement makes explicit claims regarding Christ? Will it state the church must be intolerant regarding false doctrine, false gospels, gospels that distort the true explicit claims of Christ.

Thanks for the alert, Kim!

Trader Joes seasonally puts out a pumpkin ale which would top my list of the 10 worst.

I'm going to have to read some material on two-kingdoms theory. I find myself agreeing with some of the things expressed by its advocates. I have come to oppose things like a National Day of "Prayer", especially in light of the events which have unfolded with Ravi and others involved in the event this year.

What kind of statement would Os Guiness and Richard Mouw sign?????? I have my doubts about Os, particularly since I think he was one of the signers of ECT; but I don't think it can be said that he and Mouw are alike, can it?
