Why Santorum Could Still Be the Next President:

I just want to stake my claim now, Rick Santorum will be the next president of the United States… in 2016. I know that no one knows the future, but it’s the most likely scenario given past patterns. Here’s why…

John Stott the Napper:

As someone who regularly skips meals (and not usually because I’m fasting), stays up too late, generally does not get enough sleep, and does not exercise enough, I realized that I was limiting my own effectiveness. For years I have skipped meals and sleep thinking that I don’t have time for them with all of the things I need to get done. Yet I doubt Stott could have maintained his ministry while living an unhealthy life. (HT)

Jews Reclaim Jesus as One of their Own:

In the past year, a spate of Jewish authors, from the popular to the rabbinic to the scholarly, have wrestled with what Jews should think about Jesus. And overwhelmingly, they are coming up with positive answers, urging their fellow Jews to learn about Jesus, understand him and claim him as one of their own.

Universalism, Pastors, and the People:

Based on this data, Protestant pastors are overwhelmingly not pluralist/universalist. However, the same cannot be said of their church members.

  1. The best line in the whole article:

    “And Benyamin Cohen, an Orthodox Jew who spent a recent year going to church, admitted that he’s jealous that Christians have Jesus.”

    I know this comes in the context of much revisionism that calls itself “Christian”, saying that Jesus’ message was different than the Gospel writers’ or Paul’s, but I couldn’t help but think of Romans 11:

    11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. 12 Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness!

    13 For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. 15 For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?

    If anything, I hope it will spark a renewal of evangelism to the Jews! The Gospel is still the power of God unto salvation for all who believe, to the Jew first and also to the Greek!
