Wednesday Link List

Stryper guitarist Michael Sweet said, “I can tell you this: if you kind of take the best of a handful of STRYPER albums and you kind of roll it up into a big, old fat burrito, that’s what you’re gonna get with this album.” God Damn Evil releases April 20th. More details at this link.

Here we are once again with Link List #396. Thanks to those of you who sent suggestions, and those of you who produce your own roundups from which we steal only the best… Many of these are double links, so if the topic is of interest, be sure to click both parts.

Mismatched billboard ads? Nope. It’s intentional, promoting a new sermon series at Stevens Creek Church in Augusta, Georgia. Click here for details.

“Bring your children to Church. If you don’t hear crying, the church is dying.” Read more at this extended Facebook caption.

  2. I found the Rachel Denhollander headline misleading. I read it as she was accusing Mahaney of abuse. The link suggested that and the actual article, to my eyes anyway. The article and her interview, from what I read in the article, has precious little to do with C.J. Mahaney and more to do with the leadership and culture of the church she was a part of; the article has been clarified to indicate it was not even his church. “Denhollander clarified that she and her husband did not attend a SGM church, but a Louisville, Kentucky, church ‘directly involved in restoring’ former SGM president C. J. Mahaney.” I would almost call it clickbait but maybe I just read into it.

  3. Ken Hemphill is the other candidate for SBC president. I honestly had not heard the name JD Greear before his nomination for president came up. Nor did I know of his (probable) Calvinist lean. IMHO Calvinism has been spreading like a cancer through SBC churches, primarily through pastors coming out of seminary. The spread is definitely top down as the linked article indicates. I am (obviously) not a Calvinist and believe if a Southern Baptist wishes to be said person should leave the Baptist Church and find a nice Presbyterian or Luther one to join. In the SBC I am still part of an apparently shrinking majority. I’m a long way from retirement; I may someday have to leave the SBC and find a good independent Baptist church to pastor.
