Around the Web – 6/29/12

A few articles that came to our attention in recent weeks suggest topics Christians should think about.

What should we think about Christians and sport? What would Tertullian think? What would Paul and Peter think?

Turning the spotlight elsewhere, the National Association of Evangelicals recently published a Pastoral Code of Ethics. We would agree that pastors certainly need to be ethical. We would certainly agree with most of the language in this code. But will such a code make a significant difference in pastoral conduct?

Ecumenism lives:


Isaiah 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself  with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels. 11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
