— Here’s a challenging word game. I first linked to it back in spring ’06, when I was running Job’s blog for a week, and this morning I was happy to find that it hasn’t changed a bit.

— “He has no church. He belongs to no denomination . . . As recently as three centuries ago, he probably would have been burned as a heretic.” He’s Benny Hinn, and The Wittenburg Door would like to tell you a few things about him. Did you know he describes God as “6-2 or 6-3, with long hair of a light brown color, and eyes that can look right through you”? Alluring!

— And finally, how refreshing to see a major media organization finally write an in-depth article not only investigating how millions of Barack Obama’s funds have been illegally sent in by anonymous donors (many from foreign countries), but also examining both his close affiliation with the corrupt Chicago political machine, including unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and criminal Tony Rezko, and his complicity in the subprime mortage meltdown, as the #2 recipient of donations from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac over the past twenty years.

Refreshing in theory, I mean. In reality, all we get are snarky “Sarah Palin is stupid” hit pieces like this one from Slate (owned by the Washington Post). Oh well. Her sentences are hard to diagram. And that’s really important too.

BONUS: I couldn’t leave out this great article on the sinful nature of man, as illustrated through movies. It’s more interesting than I make it sound, I promise. “However surprising it may be to hear this coming from a theologian, I find that some of Hollywood\’s most popular, current films could re-educate us on the traditional, rich, and incisive language that Christian cultures once used to describe the human condition. Hollywood can teach us how to speak about sin ”” and indeed how to be sinners again.”
