This is a rare weekend update.
Ed Young Jr's Bed-In Ends in Failure?
Ed and Lisa Young, according to some sources, had to stop their bed-in early last evening due to serious "ocular blindness" reportedly caused by the sun and the television cameras. Why does the phrase "blind guides, blind fools" come to mind?
Mark Driscoll's Interviewer Answers Driscoll
Today, I was called arrogant and holier than thou for apologizig to the British Christians for the pitiful words that Driscoll spoke. Said commenter said I should have posted Driscoll's response. I did so he didn't read very carefully. It was called A Blog Post for the Brits. The link is in Friday's post.
Here is the response given by the reporter, Justin Brierly who Driscoll denigrated in his poorly worded "contextual" explanation to the British Christians.
As to my apology, my response was predicated on the lack of response to Driscoll's ridiculous comments throughout the years. The silence amongst the Calvinistas is deafening. In fact, all of these men who continue to feature Driscoll should apologize as well.
A Truly Beautiful "Bed-In
To make up for the silliness of Driscoll and Young, I have decided to give our readers an alternative. NC State University has a video recorder placed next to a bald eagle nest at Jordan Lake, not too far from us. Two of the eggs have hatched and the babies are being well-cared for by the mother. If you can't see them, the mother is sitting on them. She occasionally gets up to feed them. You can watch this in real time. Perhaps some true beauty will help you to forget the ugliness of both the Youngs and Driscoll. Driscoll and Young could learn something from Mama Eagle. I'll leave it to our perceptive readers to figure out what that might be.
