When I wrote that it made me think of this video.  It’s scary, but really really funny.  This is not the funniest clip by this guy, but it’s quite appropo (the whole thing is funny, but 4:28 is where the magic starts):

(For more giggles provided by sanderson listen to what the Bible says about pissething)

I am so pumped for this Bible it’s kind of funny.  Dr. Ritmeyer, who contributed the incredible architectural drawings posted the video below on his blog.

“The most comprehesive study Bible ever created” — look how thick this mug is!

This is pretty hilarious.  If you have trouble getting up in the mornings maybe you can try this Flying Alarm Clock — Genius!

DesiringGod Blog has been posting some videos plugging the upcoming national conference this fall (that I think I will miss sadly, for only the second time).  The conference is about the purpose and meaning of words and looks (perhaps suprisingly given the topic) awesome.   A brother and I were having a conversation about “curse words” and when they are appropriate if ever.  Here is one of the promo vids that was posted that deals exactly with that subject.  It’s really solid and kind of funny to hear Paul David Tripp say the “s-word.”  [Warning language that could be offensive] Enjoy:

Here are two different forms of media contemplating the so-called “Prosperity Gospel;”

“God Wants Me To Be Rich” an article from Portfolio.com (HT: Challies)

“A Bunch of Crap Called ‘Gospel'” a video of John Pipper (HT: Purgatorio)

Comments welcome.

The greatest way we can fight sin is with the word of God.  However, we are prone to rely on ourselves and try to handle our struggles all on our own.  Becoming hard-pressed by temptation often leads us to isolate ourselves spiritually, emotionally, and at times physically.  While there are times for great solitude, fighting sin is not one of those times.  In his epistle, James calls us to fight sin together:

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working (James 5:16 ESV).

The writer of Hebrews encourages this type of community as well:

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near (Hebrews 10:24-25 ESV).

And lastly Paul exhorts us to bear each others burdens in fighting sin:

Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness.  Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.  Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:1-2 ESV).

This clip from Planet Earth made me think of what this should look like in our lives.  Let’s fight together the way these otters do! (Start at 2:29 for illustration)

I often stay pretty up to date with what’s on the internet, especially if it involves quality humor.  Rooming with an internet junkie in college rubbed off on me.  So when it comes to Internet Phenomenon I am often in the know.  However, there are some gems I miss despite their millions of hits only to stumble upon them thrilled.  Here is one of them

Joshua Harris mentioned on his blog the other day that it reminds him of what heaven will be like when people from all nations are dancing around with Christ.  I think he’s right on and I can’t wait to be right in the middle of it!  How sweet that by doing missions we have an opp to get a quality taste of that here and now.  Hope you enjoyed! 🙂
