There are lots of Danish style buildings, some windmills, lots of monuments to Hans Christian Anderson, and plenty of places selling liver, onions and red potatoes. I didn’t see anyone wearing wooden shoes, but now that I think about it, I believe you find wooden shoes in Holland. I was hoping to find some Mohammed cartoon tee-shirts, but we didn’t have time to look around too much.
Meanwhile, Grace to You (where I work) is busily mailing out the New American Standard edition of the John MacArthur Study Bible. We estimate 35,000 people will request a free Bible from us during the months of June and July.
Those two things are keeping me from blogging these past few days. I hope to pick it up next week. I have plenty of interesting things to hit on when I get a chance to compose them to paper.
My friend Will just added a couple of new Bible talks to FBT. One of the latest two I did address the Intelligent Designmovement. I have a forth coming message critiquing the ID movement. I appreciate what the ID folks are attempting to do, but their overall movement has some serious deficiencies I discuss. A lot of my thinking was helped along by an article critiquing ID written by biblical creationist Dr. Carl Wieland. I would recommend anyone printing it out and giving it a read. I may talk about it in more detail later.
Also, Big Orange Truck has some spot on comments about the whole Baptist “soul winning” I was raised on. He and I think alike on the subject. Look at these two articles here and here. His comments have raised some thoughts in my mind and I am thinking up some future blogs about my college evangelism days. For me, as I noted on the comment page under one of his posts, evangelism was defined as 2 hours of aimless wondering around on a Tuesday evening hoping to find someone we could recite our EE presentation to. Generally, we would wind up at a laundry mat hassling some poor person about where he or she attended church. It was terrible.
Anyhow, I look forward to next week
