Today Tonight Interviews Michael Guglielmucci

For those of you who are familiar with Michael Guglielmucci’s story Today Tonight has recently interviewed Guglielmucci on the unfortunate news concerning his lie.  For those of you who have not come across this news click here and here to read a couple of articles on the story.  Please pray that the Gospel of Christ would be displayed anew in this mans life and that true healing would come about. 

For those who have been inspired by the song “Healer” the message of the lyrics still hold true that Christ is our only healer and might I say beyond the physical body (Titus 2:11-14) regardless of this sinful event.  It still amazes me how God can still communicate truth even through the depravity of man’s sinful acts.

Suffocating Pride

“Preaching the gospel to myself each day mounts a powerful assault against my pride and serves to establish humility in its place. Nothing suffocates my pride more than daily reminders regarding the glory of my God, the gravity of my sins, and the crucifixion of God’s own Son in my place. Also, the gracious love of God, lavished on me because of Christ’s death, is always humbling to remember, especially when viewed against the backdrop of the Hell I deserve.”

– Milton Vincent, A Gospel Primer for Christians (2008), 27-28.

WordPress Sermons Plugin

ESV Blog:

The Ephesians 4:14 blog has released a WordPress Sermons Plugin. It lets you upload and search for sermons from your church by preacher, service, tag, series, and more. You can embed video or audio of the sermon right in your post, and the plugin uses the ESV API to display the relevant passage while someone is listening to the sermon.

This plugin is a great idea and a great use of technology. If you use WordPress as the backend for your church’s website, you should definitely check it out. If we’d change anything, we’d probably make entering the sermon’s Bible passages less structured: provide a text box and let people enter the passage references freeform. Then use queryInfo to extract the relevant passages.

A Brief Comparison between Logos Scholar’s Library and BibleWorks 7

Terry Delaney, a student at Southern Seminary and has given a brief comparison between BibleWorks 7 and Logos Scholar’s Library. 

Said at Southern:

I have recently reviewed both the Logos Scholar’s Library and BibleWorks7 (BW7) and have heard many say that they prefer one software system over the other for various reasons. After having reviewed both of them, I thought it would be good to offer a comparison of what I have found and open it up for discussion amongst the readers here at Said.

There is nothing technical about this; I am simply offering what I found to be the strengths and/or weaknesses to the two programs as well as a comparison of the add-ons each offers. In many ways, this was a lot like comparing apples to oranges because each program is geared for a different person. Unless otherwise noted, I am comparing the two products as base products.
