"Jesus, Recycled Redeemer?"Stand to Reason
"Is Jesus of the Gospels simply recycled ancient myths? There is a reason the ancient historical accounts of the life of Jesus of Nazareth do not start with the phrase, “Once upon a time….”  On the face of it, the authors did not appear to be writing fairytales for future generations, but rather detailed accounts of the extraordinary events in the life of a particular Jewish carpenter who actually changed the course of history."

"D.L. Moody's View of the Bible"Defending Inerrancy
"In a forty-year span, he [D.L. Moody] preached the gospel to an estimated million people, founded three schools, and a publishing house. Here are several quotations which show his uncompromising view of biblical inerrancy and his lack of tolerance for the criticism that cast doubt on the Bible. Some of the quotations are about D.L. Moody and others are by D.L. Moody himself."

"Paul's Mission Statement"Enduring Word
"Do you know what a mission statement is? Many people and organizations use a mission statement to clarify their purpose and goals. They use it clearly state what they do, how they will do it, and what success will look like. We can regard these two verses as a short yet remarkably complete mission statement for the Apostle Paul. Paul was a man who knew what he was doing and why he did it."

"Conservatives Fail the N.F.L.’s Free Speech Test"The New York Times
"The United States is in the grips of a free-speech paradox. At the same time that the law provides more protection to personal expression than at any time in the nation’s history, large numbers of Americans feel less free to speak. The culprit isn’t government censorship but instead corporate, community and peer intimidation."
