This is just fun and crazy…

Benefits of working a job for a long time

Russell Gehrlein offers a couple of benefits that can come with working the same job for decades. But he’s also previously offered a couple of problems that can come with doing the same thing for too long.

Blaise Pascal, with four rules for mocking God’s enemies

These are insightful rules, but worth testing against how God’s enemies are mocked in the Bible. Pascal says we shouldn’t make things personal – we should mock ideas, not people – but that someone might think it personal doesn’t mean it is. A man conducting a “drag queen story hour” might take personal any ridicule of him as a groomer, but would that really be a reason not to do it?

Bone growth demonstrates brilliant design

When it comes to the human body, and seeing God’s fingerprints, we might most often think about the eye, which is truly astonishing. Our bones, however, might get overlooked, because we imagine them to be simple, just supports, hardly more than sticks, right? But no indeed – even your bones, and how they know to grow just so, are unbelievably marvelous!

The best-kept secret in preparing kids against pornography

“The best kept secret in the fight for your kids’ minds is role-playing. A simple and not very time-consuming activity that costs nothing. Role-playing is practicing difficult situations with your child that might come up as they navigate through a world filled with pornography.”

Why does Socialism fail? (3 min)

Christian economist, Dr. Anne Bradley, offers 4 reasons (for the article version, click above):

  • Socialism doesn’t account for self-interest…
  • …or the importance of incentives
  • Without a marketplace, producers (and socialism’s central planners) can’t know what products people really want
  • Socialism requires that its all-powerful central planner remain benevolent, which never happens

God's artistry seen from space (8 min) There may be 300 trillion billion stars, planets, and moons in our universe and yet the Earth is likely the only one to have life. Check out our beautiful planet from a very special vantage point: space. Is Christmas a pagan rip-off? Kevin DeYoung addresses this common argument. Why China is running out of people China's decades-long one-child policy has left the country facing a demographic cliff, the population projected to halve by the end of the century. What has the government proposed to do about the disaster their own "one-child" population control policy caused? More population control, of course, now with the opposite intent – they"ll subsidize couples willing to have larger families. But after demonizing large families for decades, how well is this about-face going to work? It is easier to break than to remake, and in killing millions of unborn children, China has made a mess of things it simply isn't capable of repairing. The lesson for them, and big governments everywhere, is to back off in areas of life you should never have been involved in, in the first place. Only a government that thinks it is God will try to manage and fix everything, and such a delusional government can then only be a force for bad. So does that mean there is no hope for China? No, it only means that government isn't it. If they humble themselves and stop impeding the spread of the Gospel, who knows what God might do? A Christian China would see children in an entirely different light, as fellow image-bearers of God Himself. Then large families would finally be recognized as the blessing they always have been. 40 random pieces of advice for the Christian life Tim Challies offers up this list of bite-sized wisdom. Creating such a list seems like it could be an edifying task for anyone to figure out what, specifically, you'd want to share with your children, spouse, and maybe friends too. The new Women's Movement The Women's Movement was behind abortion, sexual "freedom," IVF, egalitarianism, universal daycare, and more. But now, as Jonathon Van Maren shares, there is some good news to share. How to eat healthily for $3 US a day Inflation is painful, but here in the West we're still able to eat well for so very little. Seinfeld Jr. (6 min) A show about nothing... but babies. ...
