Wednesday Link List

“What’s great about the official Dave Ramsey card is that it always gets declined,” Ramsey said on his radio program. “Try to buy a new fishing reel? Declined. Try to book a family vacation you can’t afford? Declined. Replace a shredded tire you failed to budget for? Yup, you guessed it—declined.” Details at Babylon Bee.

The Wednesday List Lynx is now doing endorsements.

Welcome to our State of the Christian Union address #395. Still fighting whatever it is that hit me last week, so a shorter list this week. 2018 is one month down, eleven more to go!

Preoccupied with Optics: This ad from a church in Phoenix appeared on Craigslist. Full story at The Old Black Church blog.

You remember Hahhah in the Old Testament? That woman always makes me laugh! CBD is taking advance orders on a book about her from Jill Eileen Smith.



  1. I saw the Google Home video during the past week (and cannot remember which of my friends posted it). I know a few people IRL that have Amazon Echo but no one with Google Home. I asked Google Assistant on my Android phone who Jesus is and got a reasonable answer. I think it’s a shame they changed the response categorically to “no comment” rather than just program a decent answer to the Jesus question.

    Church bulletin vs Muslim Convert: The decision in that case will affect precedent. Legal issues and court cases aside, what the church did put a new convert in danger for his life. They should owe up to that without a court of law becoming involved. I’m looking past all the issues that might come up in the debate and simply saying what is right. Telling him no one would find out and then publishing that information was wrong.
