Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

Double-Take 1/4

Today we're going to add a new feature to Deep Riches Blog. There are far too many good blog articles for most people to keep up with, even with Google Reader and all the other RSS readers that are out there. I keep up with several blogs, so rather than keep all the good stuff to myself, I will periodically post a list of links to the most intriguing articles I've been reading. 

Just because I post a link doesn't mean that I endorse everything the author is saying--but for some reason the article intrigues me and I trust it will intrigue you.  By no means am I being original in this idea.  The best examples are Tim Challies' A La Carte, and Trevin Wax's Worth a Look.  Both of those are posted daily.  I will not attain such regularity--once or twice a week will be the best that I can hope for.  I will try to not duplicate their excellent efforts and I will draw from both the "big names" and the lesser-known writers. With that being said, here are some links that are worth a Double-Take:

9Marks eJournal: Don't Be Too Cool for Sunday School
For years, all of the really smart people have been telling the rest of us that Sunday School is "sooo last century." Ed Stetzer uses the occasion of the latest 9 Marks eJournal to aggregate several web articles that tell a different story. Excellent discussion material for those of us who love Sunday School.

Missing Mike
Every person who has ever sat with a friend or family member and failed to share the Gospel because they were "uncomfortable" needs to read this post by Tim Challies.

Can She Ever Run Again?

Following Jesus?
With the current state of many local churches, some people are opting out of corporate worship altogether and "just" following Jesus. What does it mean to be "just" a follower of Jesus?

How to Stone People Without the Inconvenience of Picking Up Rocks
In the Southern Baptist circles in which I travel, church discipline is one of the least practiced and most misunderstood aspects of the local church. Byron Yawn makes a great argument that church discipline is a necessary part of what makes for a loving community.

Living in "Idiotville"
Cal Thomas talks about Daniel J. Flynn's book "Blue Collar Intellectuals"--a sad commentary on the state of the mind in America today.
