"Whether the gospel is in the movie or not--personally I don't go to movies so I couldn't care less--I don't think it could be very effective. The book has done a great job and it will keep on doing a great job!" - Louis Zamperini

Our friend Cal Thomas wrote an excellent column today about how the movie "Unbroken" only tells 'half the story.' He's correct, but I think Louis has nailed it. Too often Hollywood portrays the gospel without veracity and conversions without authenticity. I personally like the fact Louis' conversion to Christ is not in the movie. It is portrayed beautifully in the book (and Louis agrees). If you are watching this video and interested in how a man tortured by the Bird can forgive the Bird, get Laura Hillenbrand's book "Unbroken" and find out that it was Louis' comprehension of Jesus forgiveness of him (Louis) that filled up Louis' heart with the ability to forgive the Bird.

Spurgeon on Effective Preaching
A great deal of (poor) sermonizing may be defined as saying nothing at extreme length ; verbosity is not to be admired, you must say something and be done with it. "Cut it short, old boy," is a very common admonition, and I wish the presenters of this advic...

The Sleep of Reason Brings Forth Monsters
I've been researching the 1920's and 1930's in Germany and comparing the similarities between that historic Christian nation during those two turbulent decades and the United States today. In politics and religion in both countries (then and now), the masse...

Russ Moore, Women, and Preaching a False Gospel
In light of the report that Dr. Russ Moore made a proclamation that egalitarians preach "a false gospel," I decided to publish an updated post from few years ago. I respect Dr. Moore (pictured left), the head of the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Lib...

Mark Driscoll and Janet Mefferd: Plagiarism, Tribalism and Paganism
Mark Driscoll has done a great deal of good for advancing the Kingdom of God . He has also done some really weird stuff that is at best neutral in terms of its effect on the advance of the Kingdom, and in some cases, outright detrimental . At times I have d...

Copycat Church
In preparing a series on the book of Daniel, I took notice (again) as to how many Christian preachers, writers and popular speakers simply copy their theology from others. Rather than studying Scripture for themselves, they act more like Masons and are able...

C.S. Lewis on the Danger of Pornography
"Imaginary women are always accessible, always subservient, [give] no call for sacrifice or adjustment, and can be endowed with erotic and psychological attractions which no real woman can rival. Among these shadow brides, the viewer of pornography is alway...

Make No Apology for Desiring the Acts of Acts
John MacArthur's Strange Fire Conference last week set off a batch of Christian fireworks , exploding over Twitter and the Internet. The name calling on both side was unfortunate. Cessationists believe the gifts of the Spirit--including miracles, healings, ...

If you have read Anthony's one-star review, you can surely feel his pain. Taking off work, losing pay, etc...I'd like to give my experience, which is just the opposite. I called A-Fox and spoke to the owner, Cliff. I, too, called based on the reviews. Ironically, another electrical contractor had unexpectedly cancelled our appointment (illness) and I was desperately looking for another electrical contractor who would come on short notice because I had driven down to OKC to get some electrical work done on a condo we own. I explained my dilemma to Cliff. He had NO technicians available (booked two weeks out), and he was making a service call himself to help out. However, after speaking to me and finding out I had driven down to meet a contractor who had suddenly and unexpectedly cancelled, he made room in his schedule to do the work himself. He had me text me my information. His responsiveness, professionalism, and willingness to help, even though under tremendous time pressure himself was impressive. I offer this review to offset Anthony's poor experience.

I called and within an hour the plumber (Luis) was at my home. He repaired the broken kitchen water line with efficiency and expertise. My wife asked him to look under the bathroom sink and he immediately diagnosed a problem (and solution) for a leak that has given us fits. Five star service. Conscientious. Respectful. Professional. Will pay a premium for quick 24/7 service, but in my book, absolutely worth it. Will use them again without hesitation.
