Here are three articles from this time three years ago.
•All Bible Verses are Equal, But Some are More Equal than Others
When it was released in 2011, I expected a bigger reaction to The People’s Bible, a new NIV Bible format that places the verses in a font sized based on the volume of traffic for that verse at BibleGateway.com. After all, we place some verses in red if they were spoken by Jesus; soul-winner Bibles come with “Romans Road” type passages already underlined; Key Word Study Bibles only provide the Strong’s Greek or Hebrew index number for selected words3218 in a sentence; so why not highlight popular verses in bigger type?
Do you think this has merit, or is this Bible destined to remain a bit of a fringe product?
•How to Spot Pentecostals and Charismatics
This was printed in 1978 by Jesus Outreach Ministries in Fairmont, West Virginia. I don’t believe any sarcasm was intended, rather they were trying to make the Charismatic environment more user-friendly for visitors. I only deleted the bottom section because the person who gave it to me had written on it.
•Kyle Idleman on Identifying Your True Idols
On July 15, 2012 at Southeast Christian Church, Kyle Idleman asked the congregation a series of questions that are worth considering:
The answer to these questions points to what might be God’s primary competition in our lives:
- What are you most disappointed with? or What do you complain about the most?
- What do you sacrifice your time and money for?
- What do you worry about?
- Where do you go when you get hurt; when life is hard? or Where do you go for comfort?
- What makes you mad, angry?
- What brings you the most joy?
- Whose applause do you long for?
