Roundup

I just switched from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome.  It is so much faster!  Why didn’t anyone tell me about this?!

25 Ways to Use the Kindle for Bible Study — I’ve been using the ESV Study Bible on my Kindle for several months.  It is very easy to navigate between the text and the study notes, or to look up passages.  This has many other tips as well.

Up to 1,200 Killed at One Hospital by British Version of ObamaCare

Up to 1,200 people lost their lives needlessly because Mid-Staffordshire NHS Trust put government targets and cost-cutting ahead of patient care.

But none of the doctors, nurses and managers who failed them has suffered any formal sanction. Indeed, some have either retired on lucrative pensions or have swiftly found new jobs. Former chief executive Martin Yeates, who has since left with a £1million pension pot, six months’ salary and a reported £400,000 payoff, did not even give evidence to the inquiry which detailed the scale of the scandal…

All a-Twitter about abortion

Recently, Tampa native Angie Jackson decided to post her observations regarding her abortion on Twitter. Jackson tweeted (the use of which as a verb still disturbs me, but that is irrelevant) regular updates as the RU-486 (mifiprex) pills she took worked to terminate her pregnancy.

It is grossly apparent that Angie Jackson misses the crux of the debate.

Her appeal is largely to autonomy. The assumption that the unborn is not a human being is unmistakable.

“I am having an abortion…right now,” Jackson informs her audience.

“It’s basically like a miscarriage,” she says. She doesn’t clarify what she means, and such a claim demands clarification.  The terms “miscarriage” and “abortion” (as she is using it) exist on starkly different sides of a fence called “deliberate.”

“This is the best choice,” she says.

She’s right — if the unborn are not human.

“I just want to let everybody know that you too can have an abortion if you want one,” she says.

She’s right — if the unborn are not human.

“It’s okay.”

“It’s not shameful.”

She’s right — if the unborn are not human.

“It’s not killing a child.”

She’s right — if the unborn are not human.

Scientific fact: The unborn are human.  More here by Jill Stanek.

U.K. Religious Schools Forced to Promote Abortion, Homosexuality under Sex-Ed Bill — it is amazing how rapidly Western culture is careening downhill.  Freedom of speech?  What’s that?

Excerpts from the Purity Principle — great summary of the whole book by Randy Alcorn.  Highly recommended.

McLaren’s New Kind of Christianity Is Old and False

A good quote to keep in mind, courtesy of Above Every Name:

“To be holiest in evil times, is an indication of the truth of Grace. To profess religion when times favorite it, is no great matter. Almost all will court the Gospel Queen when she is hung with jewels. But to own the ways of God when they are decried and maligned, to love a persecuted truth – this evidences a vital principle of goodness. Dead fish swim downstream – living fish swim against it. To swim against the common stream of evil, shows grace to be alive.”

– Thomas Watson, The Great Gain of Godliness

Can people overcome homosexuality?  The conventional wisdom is that they can’t, but that is a lie from Satan.  Pastor Foster is gathering videos of men and women who have overcome.

    1. Hi Mark — Good, now I have a scapegoat — it’s biblical and everything!

      It took a while to sort out the imported links (hard to get used to no bar on the left) but I really like the rest.

  1. heh umm.. sorry Neil.. don’t use IE, firefox, chrome, safari, but not IE!!! 🙂 I just thought that was common knowledge.. my bad 🙂

    As for the kindle Im looking forward to the iPad and having the Logos app on it, which as you know the iPhone version is pretty sweet!

    I read that twitter account of her abortion on another site and it just sickened me :*( Even those that support abortion were a bit taken aback on that one, said it was a bit TMI for them.

  2. I stuck with IE for a long time because my employer used it as their standard. If I used another browser and had problems with internal applications, they wouldn’t support me.

    Recently, they switched to Firefox as the standard. I’ve switched for all my needs as I don’t want to switch back and forth. I love it. Faster and more flexible than IE. I’ve had no problems with it at all.

    My friends who use Chrome speak highly of it.

  3. My first thought was, you’re still on IE?

    I’ve been on Firefox for 7 years, before it was version 1. And the plugins still make it the best.

    But Chrome is following fast behind. More fast than behind.

    My biggest issues with Chrome are the plugins right now. I can’t really get them to load. And Google is kinda a my way or the highway company, and since I do things on my computer my way, Chrome doesn’t play as nicely as Google claims it will.

    But welcome to the Other than IE club Neil.

    1. Thanks for the link, Craig. Glad to see that campaign getting exposure. I’ve written on the abortion / race link many times over the last few years. Obviously I’m not “courting” the black vote as the article implies others are doing.
