Friend of Grace Key Changes, Gospel singer Ray Boltz shares coming out journey in this Blade exclusive by Joey DiGugliemo, Washington Blade. “I’d denied it ever since I was a kid. I became a Christian, I thought that was the way to deal with this and I prayed hard and tried for 30-some years and then at the end, I was just going, ‘I’m still gay. I know I am.’ And I just got to the place where I couldn’t take it anymore … when I was going through all this darkness, I thought, ‘Just end this.'” [HT – Thinklings]

Friend of Grace The Second Most Important Book You Will Ever Read by Carl Trueman, Themelios. “The thesis of the book is devastatingly simple: Christianity, built on the authoritative, divinely-inspired, inerrant revelation of God in Scripture, embodying a robust supernaturalism, and focused on the exclusivity of salvation in the person and work of Christ, is a different religion to that liberalism that repudiates each of these things.”

Friend of Grace The Lie That This is a ‘Crisis of Capitalism’ by David Warren, Ottawa Citizen. “This market crack-up, like every other, came not from observing the basic principles of capitalism, but from trying to deny them in the face of nature.”

  3. >I know I’m several days late responding (and a couple weeks late posting), but I’ve been listening when I can to the podcasts from GodBlogCon, and while I don’t think I’ll ever be able to pony up the registration fee, they have been good food for thought.
