  • FML?

    proudduck.com 29 Oct '17, 3am

    Today I want to write about positivity. I see too often people who whine and complain about things. I’m so stressed, I’m so tired, the world is against me, my parents hate me, my friends hate me, the weather is against me. And the global millennial code word FML – I will make it a poi...

    If this Facebook status were Pastor Mark Driscoll’s first offense, it might not warrant a strong response.But Mark has developed a pattern of immaturity and unkindness that has remained largely unchecked by his church. In evangelical circles, he’s like the kid from high school who mak...

    Dedicated to all my Muslim readers: I always think it’s wrong to read the Quran blindly, without knowing its meaning. I can read Arabic fine, but I never understand what it means, which is really incomplete. So I decided to get the Quran with the English translation yesterday, and rea...

    I am a 30 yo man and I am 165cm in height. Ever since I realized what is height, I have been wondering what does it feel to be tall. Sometimes I would climb up the chair to see how does it feel to be tall. Basically in my childhood, everyone laughed at my height and I would just laugh...

  • Why Calvinism Makes Me Cry

    rachelheldevans.com 09 Oct '17, 4pm

    This is not a post about Calvinism. Not really. It’s not about TULIP or John Piper or predestination or the Reformation. It’s not about why I think Calvinism is a theological system based on logical inferences rather than the clear, consistent teachings of Scripture. It’s not about al...

    They say that of the five senses, smell is most closely linked to memory. The phenomenon has something to do with the olfactory bulb in the brain’s limbic system and how it forever links the scent of soap and freshly-cut lavender to the security of your grandmother’s guest room. Scent...
