Interesting Reading

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : September 6, 2006

Here are some links I stumbled upon in a recent fit of bored surfing:

  • Paul Marshall writes the following in a Christianity Today article called The Problem with Prophets:

 Historically, Anabaptist theology has portrayed the state as “Caesar,” a realm separate from Christ and inextricably intertwined with the threat of force. Hence, Anabaptists have avoided the government when possible and addressed it prophetically from the fringes. But left-wing politicians, while suspicious of military and police power, frequently call for an expansive government to redistribute income, reform welfare, and provide medical care, among many other social causes. Thus the realm of coercion, “Caesar,” is urged to take over ever-larger swaths of society.

  • My new friend Brian Kurbis turned me on to the most disturbing article I’ve ever read.
  • Check out the latest in online services. Sadly, stuff like this doesn’t surprise me at all.  Actually, I’m surprised someone hasn’t offered this sooner.  Maybe an evangelical version of the service could be used to record “conversions.”

    That was so disturbing, I am almost mad at you for linking to that story.

    You know, what’s sad is how the other villagers treated that guy, before and after the operation.

Got something to say?
