Key Connections (May 11, 2018)

Pastor, Don’t Avoid Uncomfortable Topics (The Gospel Coalition)

…the whole counsel of God—revealed to us in his Word—is challenging to preach. But preach it we must. Otherwise, we as pastors have the blood of our congregations on our hands (Acts 20:26).

Does the New Testament Misquote the Old Testament? (Peter Krol, Knowable Word)

Remember: The original languages don’t function like a code to be cracked. They were real documents written by real people in ordinary languages.

The Exposing Power of Mother’s Day (Abbey Wedgeworth, Unlocking the Bible)

We spend most of our days wiping noses, changing poopy diapers, rising at our middle-of-the-night summons…and putting ourselves last to make sure that the needs of our families are met. But not Mother’s Day. Shouldn’t Mother’s Day be a day about us?

The Ninth Commandment and the Pain of Social Media (Nate Bingham, Nathan W. Bingham)

If I do not conceal my will from my earthly children, how much more our heavenly Father? His will does not need discovering. It is in plain sight.
