Hardly To Be Discerned

“Good and evil grow up together in the field of this world almost inseparably, and the knowledge of good is so involved and interwoven with the knowledge of evil, and in so many cunning resemblances hardly to be discerned, that those confused seeds which were imposed upon Psyche as an incessant labor to cull out and sort asunder were not more intermixed.” – John Milton, Areopagitica, 1644

Sit for a bit and enjoy three good links for three good thinks. 

First, from Christianity Today (which is often Christianity Astray but not in this case): “The Very Worst Trend Ever” — some keen thoughts on the dangers of the current Christian-cultural crush on “brokenness”, and how it can so easily morph into an unbiblical acceptance of stagnation: http://www.christianitytoday.com/women/2013/july/very-worst-trend.html?paging=off

Second, from Dr. Al Mohler, insights on Halloween. Not legalistic, just helpful.

Third, a gracious and encouraging challenge from John Piper to all parents. Now that I’m grown, I’m so very grateful that mine enforced first-time obedience.  http://www.desiringgod.org/blog/posts/parents-require-obedience-of-your-children
