Some news, observations, or other random stuff I thought mildly interesting:
* Another prominent Southern Baptist preacher is saying silly things about Reformed theology (specifically the doctrine of election). This time its Jack Graham, pastor of a Texas SBC megachurch and former president of the Southern Baptist Convention. He says it “slanders the character of God. It is an arrogance that verges on blasphemy.” I don’t have the stomach to listen to the sermon, but you can read more about it here. To many of the bigwigs, John Calvin is the boogeyman.
* This looks like a good conference – I’ll probably try to go if possible.
* Christian pop singer Jaci Velasquez is apparently now divorced from her husband of two years. The cause of the divorce is unknown beyond the vague comment that “our marriage just didn’t work out.”
* I activated word verification on comments in order to try to eliminate spam comments. Sorry for the additional step – I enjoy getting comments!
