Carl Trueman on facebook, video games, and the internet at large…

It’s over-the-top, incredibly helpful, and beautifully written (the man has such a gift for sentences!)



I know of no quality so easy to counterfeit as piety, if conduct and life are not made to conform with it.  Its essence is abstruse and occult; its semblane, easy and showy. (748)

Any man can play his part in the side show and represent a worthy man on the boards; but to be disciplined within, in his own bosom, where all is permissible, where all is concealed — that’s the point. (743-745)

~Michel De Montaigne, Essays: Of Repentance.

it’s been a while…a long while, but I’m going to try and get to blogging at least a couple times a week.  I tried to give it up all together, but I just keep coming back.  I’m hoping this may light up a few old RSS feeds, but I guess we’ll see.
