Here are links to three interesting reads that I think are worth your weekend reading time:

  1. SHOULD WE CHEER FOR GOD? “When you’re watching a football game and your team scores, what do you do? You Cheer! You burst out of your seat and pump your fist and yell and clap and slap five with those around you!. So why aren’t you like that toward God? You should express that same kind of excitement and joy toward Him!”
  2. In A LETTER TO (SOME) ATHEISTS, Michael Patton responds to the way many atheists like to oversimplify belief in God, comparing and likening (or equating) it to belief in Santa Claus. “If belief in God was on par with belief in Santa, then why would there be people who hold positions in seminaries and universities all over the world who not only believe in God, but spend their lives making (what they believe to be) rational defenses for such a belief?”
  3. Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God, but by different names? Is God by any other name still God? In A ROSE IS A ROSE, R.C. Sproul attempts to show how and why all religions do not worship the same God. “It is a quantum leap to go from saying that God by any other name is still God, to saying that all the great religions in the world believe in the same Being though they call Him different names.”

Enjoy your reading, friends 🙂
