Around the Web–Post Election and other news

The Election

Do People Really Vote with Their Wallets? The New Moral Majority and the 2012 Election

Michael Kruger (of Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC) with a very insightful perspective (in my opinion):

“The reality is that America has changed drastically since the 1990’s.   It’s hard to believe that the Defense of Marriage act was signed by Clinton in 1996 and supported by the vast majority of Congress.  Such a thing is unthinkable today.   There is a new moral majority.  And it is decidedly on the left.”

Franklin Graham: U.S. on ‘Path of Destruction’

Graham is reacting to the victory of same-sex marriage initiatives. His reaction fits in with Michael Kruger’s thesis in the article linked above.

Goodbye, Christian America; Hello, True Christianity

Richard Stearns, president of World Vision, offers a somewhat anemic response. Not too surprising given the soft stands and misplaced priorities of World Vision.

And on homosexual marriage, note the changes coming in France:

France to Become 12th Country to Legalize Gay Marriage

French Socialists Call for ‘Assisted Procreation’ for Homosexuals

    • Seriously! Seriously weird.

France to Replace ‘Mother’ and ‘Father’ With ‘Parents’ on Official Documents

A tragic story from Britain:

Britain’s youngest sex swap patient to revert to birth sex

“I don’t want to live in isolation, away from everyone I love. This is the only way forward. I just want to be happy and this is my last chance.”

And now for something edifying:

Professor Grant Horner’s Bible-Reading SYSTEM

I recommend regular Bible reading. I am sure most pastors do. There are many different reading plans available. A friend recommended this one recently. It requires about an hour a day on average. If you committed to it, you would find an incredible increase in Bible comprehension.

While on the topic of Bible reading, here is a chronological Bible reading schedule we developed at Grace Baptist Church of Victoria. It also requires a time commitment, but will help you gain an understanding of the content of the Bible in its chronological development.
