Blog Roundup for August 25th, 2007

I’ve been asked to be a blog cowboy and do a roundup of recent SBTS, SBC, and other blogging of interest. If this works out, Tony and Company might allow me to do this on a weekly basis, but for now I am on trial. Oh, and one more thing, blogs are meant to be about dialog. Wouldn’t you be kind and consider leaving thoughtful comments on some of these posts? I’m sure their authors would be thrilled.

A very encouraging post about a missions agency that is not just narrowly focused on “unreached people groups” but is vitally interested in building up “reached” peoples so they may grow in discernment and REMAIN in the faith. I know that in Cameroon I saw the church stuck in syncretism, filled with professing believers still enslaved to ancestor worship and vulnerable to every form of false teaching, particularly about health and wealth.

Owen shows us a good research method from which to build. This is the place where I admit that as an undergrad, I’d find a secondary source on the topic I liked, would present a variation on its argument in my paper, and use primary sources just for quotation. That doesn’t hack it at the Master’s level.

Adam Winters took a break from photoshopping pictures of his roommate as a zombie to say some good words about speaking flippantly of the dead.

Important blogs from outside the cloisters and within the faith.

These look like exciting new SBC-wide blogs that are worthy of our attention. They have sprung up because of the tenor of a certain SBC blog has really gone south, if you’ll pardon the expression. We’ll see if these can do a better job.

In stark contrast to those who would sell their sermons online, Sovereign Grace has joined the growing body of quality ministries making them available for free.

Justin Taylor delivers a stunning condemnation of how I often find myself approaching the Gospel.

I promise I haven’t linked everything Justin Taylor has written this week, but this was an excellent roundup of the recent “blog skirmish” on the Ordinances. Food for thought for Baptists, indeed.
Justin Taylor Again!!
{EDIT: an SBTS Blogger has sounded off substantively on this topic here. }

And, because we need to be in while yet not of the world, I have the following two political pieces of note:

Baptists running a “Catholics Against Giuliani” site? If true, that is very naughty of them. Read for yourself
