George Carlin’s New Rules for 2008

I liked these: Ben Witherington: George Carlin’s New Rules for 2008. Here is one example:

New Rule:

Just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn’t make you
spiritual. It’s right above your least flattering feature, and it translates
to "beef with broccoli." The last time you did anything spiritual, you
were praying to God you weren’t pregnant. You’re not spiritual.
You’re just high.

John 3:16 and limited atonement

A great post by Peter: Gentle Wisdom » John 3:16 and limited atonement which concludes with:

Calvin himself did not hold the doctrine of limited atonement. It is time for those who claim to be his followers to abandon this perversion of biblical teaching and accept the glorious truth that God loves the whole world, including every human being, and sent his Son to die an unlimited atoning death for it all, that the whole universe might be reconciled to him, Romans 8:21.

Whoo hoo – that is the God I love!
