What Are You Reading? 26-02-2018

  • 9 Things You Should Know About Billy Graham (1918–2018): Graham has preached the gospel to more people in live audiences than anyone else in history—nearly 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories.
  • Why do Churches cover up sin?: This is a very thoughtful article on why sometimes churches cover up complaints about individuals in the church. Complaints that are sometimes criminal in nature including sexual abuse etc. I hope that more people in church leadership think through these issues.
  • The Missing Word in Our Modern GospelBut let’s preach the gospel the way Jesus and the apostles did. Theirs was not a message of unconditional affirmation. They showed no interest in helping people find the hidden and beautiful self deep inside. They did not herald the good news that God likes you just the way you are…There’s a word missing from the presentation of our modern gospel. It’s the word repent.
  • The Sinfulness of Cinderella ThinkingSin is not just the bad that you do but the good that you do not do. ‘Not strengthening the hand of the poor and needy’ is considered sin by God just like arrogance and homosexuality.
  • The Black Panther as Afrofuturist Womanist Vision: I confess, I’m a huge comic book fan. I also find any article by Thabiti Anyabwile to be very thought provoking and challenging. His writings on race are simply brilliant. So when I saw that he had written an article on Black Panther, I had to add it. This is quite a deep take on womanhood.
