Saticoy

I have been totally digging this new CD from my friends, the Saunders, who make up Saticoy. And this track, Rebel Angel, is one of my favorites from their recent CD release show. You can hear more on their Youtube page here.

A Desert of Sterile Egoism

David Bentley Hart writes: I suppose I should have seen it coming. It’s the fashion of the moment. Ayn Rand and her idiotic “Objectivism” are enjoying a—well, I won’t call it a renaissance, so let’s say a recrudescence. Suddenly she is everywhere. In the stock television footage of Tea Party rallies, there she always is…

Wolfed Down in the Desert

Russell Moore writes: Finally, and most importantly, we call on the church to counteract pornography with what the demonic powers fear most: the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus, after all, walked with us, before us, into the testing of the appetites. His enemy and ours offered him a solitary masturbatory meal, to be wolfed down…

Loving Daughters

My friend Jerry Owen has some great thoughts on parenting, loving daughters, and honoring all women in light of Easter: As our culture grows increasingly immodest, women–and girls–are going to increasingly be the victims of sexual vandalism and exploitation. We need to remember that it was the gospel of Jesus Christ that transformed the treatment…

Why Jesus Wrote on the Ground with His Finger

The evangelist John carefully notes that Jesus “wrote with His finger” on the ground a second time.The literary allusions implied by this act are masterfully chosen. First, the law of Moses was written “by the finger of God” (Exod 31:18). The tablets of the law kept in the first temple were actually produced the second…
