Morning Coffee

19 Dec

Here are the stories I put in my coffee this morning.

  • God with Us
  • Secular society, of course, is especially adept at making Christmas into something that it is not. From a non-Christian perspective, the “winter holiday season” is not about Christ at all. It’s about commercialism.

  • Do You Believe in a Santa Christ?
  • In Sinclair Ferguson’s book, In Christ Alone, he shares the sad reality that many Christians have a Christology that is more informed by Santa Claus than Scripture.

  • Revising Christmas, Again
  • The kingdom of God is not at all affected by whether we can maintain a facade of Christendom in America. Because, unfortunately, plenty of Americans are happy to go to bat to keep Christ in our holiday vocabulary, but are ill-equipped or ashamed (or both) to proclaim the Gospel to their friends and family members, or are enemies of that Gospel themselves.

  • Bringing Lewis from Page to Stage
  • It’s not enough for Christians to be culture-critics; we must also be culture-makers. I want to express the Christian worldview through the arts.

Another Hobbit Bonus:

  • Good and Evil Are Not Equals
  • Don’t give Peter Jackson all the credit. He wasn’t the first to desire an adult version of J.R.R. Tolkien’s children’s story The Hobbit. According to author and scholar Colin Duriez, it was actually Tolkien himself who initially had the vision.
