Ordinary amazingness (2 min)

It’s a dandelion. And here, too, the Creator has crafted his magic, putting it on display for all who have eyes to see.

Save money: stop changing your oil

We’re called to be good stewards of what God gives us, and that applies to how often we change the oil in our cars too. For years now, we’ve had it drummed into our heads that good, stewardly, car owners change their oil every 5,000 kilometers (or 3,000 miles). But, as Philip Reed shares, for some cars that just isn’t true anymore.

How did all the pollsters get the Australian election massively wrong?

Michael Cook argues they did it to themselves when they shifted from being simply opinion takers to trying to be, in subtle ways, opinion makers.

Free e-book: R.C. Sproul’s Everyone’s a Theologian

For a limited time (I don’t know how long) you can download Sproul’s fantastic, accessible, and really enjoyable book on systematic theology, Everyone’s a Theologian. You do have to give your info, but for this book, and with this organization, that seems a very good and safe trade.

Hungary wants at least 4, China considers 3, while India ponders a 2-child limit

For 35 years China used forced abortions, sterilizations, and infanticide under its infamous one-child policy. But that’s brought them to the entirely predictable demographic crisis of one child having to care for two parents and four grandparents with no help from siblings or cousins…because they don’t exist.

In 2015, finally recognizing this looming crisis, China changes to a two-child policy. Might they now be considering a three-child policy? It seems even the godless Chinese government is being forced to recognize at least one biblical truth: that children are not a curse, but a blessing. (Meanwhile, India is pushing for just 2 to restrict the size of Muslim families. And in Hungary, the government wants women to have at least four, and if they do, they don’t have to pay income tax for life.)

7 reasons (43 min)

Ray Comfort shows that there is a large muddled middle that is pro-choice mostly because they’ve never heard someone speak clearly and compelling for the unborn. And Comfort shows the power of analogies to make clear, at least for those who have ears to hear, why the 7 most common reasons for abortion don’t justify it at all.
