Very interesting Q&A with Carly Fiorina, one of the many candidates running for the Republican nomination in next year’s election.
Carey Bustard interviews Les Slough, vice president of Shank’s Extracts, Inc:
Jesus commands us to “love our neighbors as ourselves.” How does your work function as an opportunity to love and serve others?
Our “bottom line” and caring for our employees aren’t opposing values. We want to make sure they can care for their families. We actively present challenging careers, which allow them to use their gifts. In providing a safe and healthy work environment, we get a quality product in return.
One of the most unfortunate but telling aspects of social media is the way many Christians use it with little concern for how it reflects on them or their Savior.
Tim Challies put together a great text on the Trinity. Take it (and read carefully).
Saint Anselm once said we should give thanks for whatever of the Christian faith we can understand with our minds; but when we come to something we don’t understand, we should “bow our heads in reverent submission.” That seems like godly and wise advice to me. We simply don’t have the option to pick and choose from what the Bible teaches: we are called to submit to its authority over us.
The traditional doctrine of hell is currently undergoing significant challenges from both within and without the church. Many question the reality of hell outright, while many others opt toward annihiliationism—the belief that the damned won’t suffer eternally but will instead have their consciousness extinguished at some point.
