Links from the Intergoogle 1

After two weeks of vacation away from the Internet, there was lots of fresh reading material.

Here's some stories and thoughts I found interesting:
  • Who are the unhappiest of all the self-employed? Answer: farmers.
  • In Millionaires Who Don't Feel Rich, the New York Times finds a hilarious modern edition of unbelievers described in Psalm 127:2. In vanity, they work way too much, striving for that elusively nice home life.
  • A simple, biblical, powerful way to transform your life. Really.
  • Feminist Naomi Wolf admits that porn hurts women and ruins relationships: "For the first time in human history, the images’ power and allure have supplanted that of real naked women. Today, real naked women are just bad porn.” Tim Challies offers an evangelical response.
  • Ever wonder if changing a baby's diaper is "spiritual"? Read what Luther says.
  • I hate blogs for this reason too.
  • A former pastor shopping for a church finds reasons to like both mainline and non-mainline churches.
  • "My Favorite Verse That's Not in the Bible," is a provocative article by my former professor and mentor Dr. Dan Wallace.
  • Craig Groeschel share one, two, three, four, five excellent leadership lessons from his baseball dad.
  • A large sized, God-inspired manifesto to live by.
  • Dr. Robert Gagnon, an outstanding biblical scholar who has courageously made the case that homosexual practice grieves the heart of God, offers practical advice on how the church should handle issues of membership and ordination.
  • Douglas Wilson illustrates with vegetables his optimistic appraisal of John 3:16.
  • NFL training camps are ramped up, which means I'm spending more time at my favorite NFL website--
