Perhaps the deadliest tool in the devil’s assault on the Christian faith begins with the deception that the work of salvation is only partially done. The lie is that Jesus got you part of the way, but if you really want in, if you really want to be a Christian, you have to do something else, something more, something on top of what’s already been done.

Another week has come and gone, but another round of “Links I Like” starts right now. Lots of stuff to get to this week, so let’s get started!
Among the things that perturb me about modern Christianity is our residual clinging to a sort of “Christian-karma.” You’ve probably read this frustration from me before, but with some recent events in my own life, I feel as though Christians still just don’t get it.

Another week may have come to an end but another collection of links begins for you right now. Enjoy!
