Hey Nate, who's Rachel Lucas? Sweet, Kettinger, don't check your own links.
Anybody like hockey? Let's go Blues! Is it just me, or is Al Macinnis making a bid for Greatest Defenseman Ever? I like him, anyway.
Oh, and Institutes of the Christian Religion is good, but very difficult. And quite frankly, I don't think I would invite John Calvin over for dinner if he were still here. Seems like a jerk to me.
We'll be permalinking to some really sweet theological documents like the Westminster Confession of Faith and 39 Articles of Faith (Anglican). Both of these in particular articulate the core theological positions of the Reformation. That whole "second wave" thing, not quite as good. As for those people who say, "I don't read anything except the Bible," "No Creed but the Christ, yadda yadda blah blah", etc, it has been my experience that these documents show us how good some of our brothers are at interpreting Scripture (no small talent, to be sure) but also serve to highlight that we as individuals don't read Scripture that closely. There's more than meets the eye. In any case, Scripture, as always, remains the only infallible rule of faith and life.
Wow. A long time away! Sorry. But noone reads this anyway. Hi, Nate. Hi, other Nate. Welcome back. I've been trying to keep this blog relatively apolitical, but it's really difficult. In that spirit then, I may start another.
