This and That

A few things you might want to check out:

Charlie of Another Think sent me a link to this piece at The Holy Observer. If you are a Calvinist and you have a sense of humour, you might like this one. However, if you are one of the frozen chosen, I suggest you just pass this one by.

From Scott McClare, aka "Ransom" of the Baptist Board, or "Xenu", or The Crusty Curmudgeon, Xenu's King James Only Fallacy Page. Scott describes the site like this:
It occurred to me that, given enough time, I could build a pretty comprehensive list of logical fallacies by drawing on KJV-only sources alone. And, since you are reading this, that means I have already found ten examples--the minimum number I decided beforehand would make a worthwhile Web site. Of course, there are plenty more where those came from, so this site is still a Work in Progress.
J. Mark Bertrand seems to be making up for lost time, posting two thoughtful pieces yesterday. The first is dealing with the postmodernism that Christian high school students face in the public schools and looking at two questions that arise from their experiences. The second is on the "problem" of predestination. A quote to whet your appetite:
If the Bible teaches both predestination and human responsibility, then we should believe them both, whether we can explain the relationship between them or not. Personally, I think the whole predestination vs. free will thing is a false dilemma. It is not as incomprehensible as people try to make it out to be. On the face of it, the so-called dilemma is no more difficult than that of inspiration itself. In fact, as I have argued before, the process of inspiration provides a useful analogy for understanding how God's work and man's work can coincide.
