5 to Live By: The Top 5 Christian Blog Posts of the Week
Sexual Sin in the Ministry
At Desiring God, Dr. Harry W. Schaumburg writes about Sexual Sin in the Ministry. Here’s a brief excerpt about the seriousness of the sin.
Several years ago a seminary professor told me: “We no longer ask our entering students if they are struggling with pornography, we assume every student is struggling. The question we ask: ‘How serious is the struggle?’” One missions agency told me that 80% of their applicants voluntary indicate a struggle with pornography, resulting in staff shortages on the field.
The Lament of Job
Dr. Mark Eckel begins a four-part blog mini-series on Blindsided: The Lament of Job. Here’s a brief excerpt.
Job was blindsided. There are times when each of us stands in line next to him. We share the lament Job utters. Job’s disillusionment is our own. The Holy Spirit has given us a device, a form in Scripture which gives our pain a voice. We know how Job ends which is not true for each of us who suffer: an earthly reversal by Providential good fortune. But while we may be blindsided in this life, the other side exists in The Next Life (Job 14:7-14; 19:23-27).
