Credo’s Cache

Each week we will be highlighting important resources. Check back each Friday to see what we have dug up for you. From this week’s cache:

1. Calvinism and DeterminismBy James Anderson – Anderson says: “If you’re a Calvinist, the next time a fellow Christian accuses you of being a ‘determinist’ (as though that were a dirty word) you can reply, ‘Sure, I’m a determinist — and there’s a good chance you are too.'”

2. The Worship of Men: An Old ProblemBy Jeremy Walker – Walker notes: “It makes you wonder what the blogosphere, to mention just one arena, might sound like if – for one week at least – every true Christian undertook to give themselves less to assaults on or defences of particular men and their teachings, and more to the exaltation of the great Giver of every such gift to the church.”

3. Help Your Kids Say ‘No’ to PornBy Jen Wilkin – Wilkin says: “Be the first voice your child hears about sex and sexuality, and about fleeing porn exposure. Don’t let fear cause you to delay beginning this conversation. And don’t let fear cause you to have the conversation in a way that scares your child or casts sexuality in a negative light.”

4. What’s All This ‘Gospel-Centered’ Talk About?By Dane Ortlund – Ortlund says: “We will be broken, messy sinners until Jesus comes again and gives us final cleansing. Till then, true shalom and fruitfulness can only be found through waking up each day, shoving back the clamoring anxieties, and defibrillating our hearts with a love that comes only to those — but to all of those — who open themselves up to it.”

5. President Bartlet Doesn’t ExistBy Richard Clark– Clark notes:  “President Bartlet doesn’t exist. That fact may be obvious, but for many of us, it’s also heartbreaking. Fans of The West Wing have long appreciated the fair-minded, selfless, Democratic President (in spite of the ways they may have disagreed with his policy decisions) primarily because of the manner in which he wields his power. Bartlet is the essence of humility, constantly aware of the effect of his decisions on others. The unwavering loyalty of his staff only reinforces for him the seriousness of the opportunities in his presidency.”
