This weekend’s Six-Pack features a half-dozen online offerings from the past week. As usual, these articles are mostly faith-focused or ministry-geared, with a bit of disorderly-pile-of-who-knows-what tossed in!
1) Cheap Law
In his latest post for Gospel Coalition, Tullian Tchividjian shares this word: “Jesus shows that because God’s demands are unqualified and undiluted, the grace we desperately need must be unqualified and undiluted.” He warns that the great problem in the church today is the same problem Jesus addressed in Matthew 5–cheap law, not cheap grace. He then directs us to a very sharp piece by John Dink.
2) When the Church Lost Its Voice
Scot McKnight summarizes a chapter from Ross Douthat’s recent book, “Bad Religion” that sketches five major shifts that have undermined the faithful witness of the church over the past six decades.
Enjoy your weekend, friends, through renewing yourself and reverencing God.
