Divorcing Jesus from religion
As Joel Miller explains, it’s harder than it looks.

We are to be discharged today! What a turn of events!!
Here’s a good news story and some lovely baby pics. And if you want a great example of a steady public Christian witness in the midst of trail, read the last few weeks of blogs there too.

Write something dangerous
I think there’s probably something for preachers here too.

One simple way to keep your mental engine running
On the subject of writing something dangerous, I actually disagree with most of this approach to life, but I thoroughly enjoyed the lively writing!

How to run an elder’s meeting
“The purpose of this article is to discuss practical elements of elders’ meetings so that God may be maximally glorified by them. I will discuss the consecration of elders’ meetings, their content, and their conduct.”

When the good do bad
“It’s always interesting to read the quotations of people who knew a mass murderer before he killed. They usually express complete bafflement that a person who seemed so kind and normal could do something so horrific.”

    Thanks for the link, Dr. Murray…Interested as to why you “thoroughly disagree with most of this approach to life”?

      Whoops, misquoted you there. Not fair: “disagree with most of this approach to life.”

        Hi Nick, until quite recently, I used to live this way and it just about brought me to an early grave! I’m now consciously trying to aim lower, achieve less, take my foot of the pedal, spend more time with family & friends, and especially with God. Maybe I’m just getting old!
        But I do enjoy your lively writing.

    I really appreciate that perspective, Dr. Murray. Would you ever consider expanding on it and writing a brief guest post on TRJ? I think it would be great for us younger guys to hear what you have to say on ambition.

    “Younger guys”! I thought David was a “younger guy.”

      I thought so too….until last year! I’m 45, so I guess I’m a kind of “in-between-guy” (hate the term “middle-aged”)

    Just borrowing your own terminology, David ;)
