Jerry Falwell Jr., Becki Falwell, and Me. . . – Walt Mueller

Culture, Uncategorized

Of course, the Falwell’s have been caught in the act of doing some horrible, immoral, and flat-out sinful things. For choosing to walk those paths they are clearly responsible and accountable. But their actions should also have fall-out in our lives too. . . serving us as clear reminders and deterrents. For the reality is that we, like them, are broken human beings. And lest we think that we are above, beyond, or immune to doing the same. . . well. . . that would be a grave error in judgement. The well-worn cliche. . . “there but for the grace of God go I” . . . is more than appropriate here.

Life is short. Follow Jesus.

Anthony Fauci’s Boss on Why Things Could Be Much Better Soon

Culture, Uncategorized

Boy, that’s a big one. What is our future? I don’t want to see a future where this science-versus-faith conflict leads to a winner and a loser. If science wins and faith loses, we end up with a purely technological society that has lost its moorings and foundation for morality. I think that could be a very harsh and potentially violent outcome. But I don’t want to see a society either where the argument that science is not to be trusted because it doesn’t agree with somebody’s interpretation of a Bible verse wins out. That forces us back into a circumstance where many of the gifts that God has given us through intellectual curiosity and the tools of science have to be put away.

So I want to see a society that flourishes by bringing these worldviews together by being careful about which worldview is most likely to give you the truth, depending on the question you’re asking.

Pray for Missionaries

The Church

In some ways, praying for missionaries is like buying Christmas presents for your distant relatives in Florida. You don’t know what their day-to-day life looks like. You don’t know what they need, what they want, or what would be most meaningful. As a result, we often opt for prayers to bless the missionaries that are rarely more personal or specific than an Amazon gift card sent via email. But we can do better.
