In today’s #FaithandCulture Reading, we cull a brief list of some of our favorite articles of the week — featuring selections from Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra, Peter Nenadov, Scott Hildreth, John Ewart and Jenn Kinter.
- Rooted in the Cross: Why We Need MLK’s Strength to Love
Petar Nenadov at Made to Flourish: “The reverend Billy Graham demonstrated how a simple and clear gospel presentation can reach the masses. Dr. King’s sermons demonstrate how thoughtful and prophetic messages can also do the same.”
- Why There Are Way More Pro-Life Protestors Than You Think
Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra at The Gospel Coalition, quoting Karen Swallow Prior: “We were not only preventing abortions, but we were also raising consciousness about abortion.”
- The Haunting, Undeniable Truth of the Bible
Scott Hildreth at the CGCS: “Millions have not heard, the Bible is clear — unless a person hears the gospel and personally responds in faith, there is no hope for salvation. People are not protected from God’s wrath because they have never heard.”
- The One Versus Millions
John Ewart at the CGCS: “I pray we will have a desperate love for the church like I witnessed there, a love driven from the One out to the millions.”
- Some Questions and Answers About Foster Care
Jenn Kinter at the ERLC: “Foster care is one means of loving our neighbors and of caring for the orphan.”
