A Voice in the Wind, pp. 59This week I want to start with some more history. Last week we talked about the knowledge the Roman aristocracy would have had of Christianity in the 70 AD. In that post I quoted at length from a scholar who argued not only that Nero very likely did not blame the Christians for the fire of 64 but also that at that time (and for some time afterwards) the term "Christian" would have been anachronistic, and most Romans were unlikely to have heard of not only the term b … [Read more...]

Maybe We Need More Women in Health Insurance?

This morning Donald Trump sent out this tweet:Description of tweet: Text reads "Great meeting with CEOs of leading U.S. health insurance companies who provide great healthcare to the American people." Image shows Donald Trump sitting at a desk surrounded by 12 predominantly older businessmen (11 are white and 1 is black). I look at that image and I feel invisible.

As you may remember, Marcus' father has just decided to give Antigonus a significant amount of money, to support his political career.

You’re Not Helping, Franklin Graham

Earlier this month, Franklin Graham posted this to Facebook:Text of Facebook post by Franklin Graham: I’m on my way to Puerto Rico—to warn people that God uses extreme vetting. What do I mean by that? I want the people of Puerto Rico to know that God loves them and that there is only one way to enter the gates of heaven—and that is through faith in Jesus Christ, and Him alone. Good works can’t get you into heaven. Religion can’t either—being a Baptist, a Catholic, or a Methodist, can’t s … [Read more...]
