Recently, social media was astir with news that the well-known fact-checking website, Snopes.com had been checking the truthfulness of the well-known satire website, TheBabylonBee.com. Even the NY Times recognized the controversy between the Bee and Snopes. They noted the bias by which Snopes appears to judge the stories subjected to fact-checking.

This also generated some humorous satirical “headlines” at the Bee (and I heartily endorse you check out the Bee for your daily comedic intake):

Herman Bavinck. Christian Worldview.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, October 21, 2019.  144 pp.

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is the much anticipated first time English translation of Dutch Reformed theologian Herman Bavinck’s Christian Worldview.  For those who are unfamiliar with Bavinck he was the chief systematic theologian of the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century and whose contribution to theology has enjoyed greater appreciation today.  This book addresses the constant changing late modern world and also the disharmony that unbiblical worldviews were causing, namely a disharmony between our thinking and feeling, will and acting, religion and culture and science and life.  I found it amazing that the first and second edition of this work was written over a hundred years ago, in 1904 and 1913 respectively.  Yet some of the philosophical issues and competing worldview that Bavinck addressed in this work are still with us today.

I’m having a writer’s block today.  I think its the fatigue from the travel back and then picking up regular ministry and preparation for studies.

So before the day end (11/6) I guess I’ll have this post asking you the readers the question: What did you read from Scripture this week?  Share what you learn!

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading some time ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 5:9.  Here is my translation:

“μακάριοι οἱ εἰρηνοποιοί,
Blessed are the peace makers

ὅτι αὐτοὶ υἱοὶ θεοῦ κληθήσονται. ”
because they will be called sons of God

Here are some observations:

RC Sproul. The Intimate Marriage: A Practical Guide to Building a Great Marriage.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, March 31st, 2017. 163 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

How is your marriage doing?  Are you growing in loving each other and also growing in godliness?  Do you desire to read a book that would help you strive to grow in these areas for your marriage?  If so this book is for you.  I realize the title of the book might sound its about sex but it isn’t solely on sex, though it does talk about that subject for one of the chapters.  It’s really a book on godly love between a husband and wife and what does God’s way looks like.  My wife and I immensely enjoyed this work.  I found this work very helpful so much so that I incorporated some of the insights of the book into my twenty four session series on marriage difficulties.
