Observing the Interweb: Cormac McCarthy, Victoria’s Secret, Hymns, and more…

Cormac McCarthy – If you’re not familiar with Cormac McCarthy, you should be. He’s a contemporary American author with a particularly keen understanding of the nature of man and the problem of evil. His novel’s include No Country for Old Men, The Road, and many more. This article is a fascinating look into the importance of his work and why Christians should read him.

Role “Model” – You may have heard this story already, but it was the only one I could find without an inappropriate picture. Kylie Bisutti is a former Victoria’s Secret model who has quit the modeling industry out of respect for her body, her husband, and her Savior. She is someone worthy of respect.

Discipling a New Believer – Bay Area Pastor Justin Buzzard offers some great insights into the needs of new believers, and how seasoned CHristians can care for them. Let’s continue to pray that those who come to faith in Christ are surrounded by saints who will lead them into deeper communion with the Lord.

Here’s a great video discussion about the place of Hymns in the church. Enjoy:

One more video. We showed this one last night at Axis, our church youth group, it’s a great picture of the overall storyline of the Bible, and God’s plan for the salvation of His people:
