John Dewey: Founder of America’s Public Education System - Feb. 22
John Dewey (1859-1952), one of America’s most influential humanist philosophers, had an incalculable influence on modern education.

Hymns - Jewels From Isaac Watts - Feb. 14
The pioneering hymn writer of the First Great Awakening was Isaac Watts (1674-1748).
Known as “the father of English hymnology” and “the first really great hymn-writer in English,” Watts was the author of a nearly complete Psalter and between 600 and 700 hymns.
 Watts’ Psalms and hymns were loved by the main figures of the First Great Awakening. His friends included Jonathan Edwards, John and Charles Wesley, George Whitefield, and Cotton Mather. Edwards “specified the singing of Watts’s hymns as a key element” of the Awakening” (Ronald Rees,
A Nation of Singing Birds, p. 21).
 Watts’ father was a deacon in a a non-conformist congregation and was jailed twice under King Charles II for meeting without a license. When Isaac was a nursing infant, his mother sat on the steps of the jail waiting for..

A WORLD UNDER DELUSION, WITHOUT EXCUSE, ON THE VERGE OF JUDGMENT (Friday Church News Notes, February 9, 2024, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - According to the Bible, the entire world totters on the very brink of eternal judgment. The good news of God’s gracious offer of salvation in Jesus Christ, a salvation that was purchased by the suffering and death of the very Son of God, has been proclaimed to the ends of the earth for 2,000 years; it has been translated into most languages; it is available on the internet at the click of a mouse or the swipe of a smartphone. For the most part, it has been callously rejected. The law of God is written on man’s very conscience and will condemn him in the day of judgment (Romans 2:14-16). Man instinctively knows there is a God, and he knows that this God is a holy Judge, and he tries to hide himself.. Read More
Seeing the Non-Existent
Dawkins’ Typing Monkeys - Feb. 8
  The following is excerpted from Seeing the Non-existent: Evolution’s Myths and Hoaxes.-
In his reply to the creationist argument that complex proteins cannot be produced by chance, Richard Dawkins uses the example of monkeys typing the following line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet,
 METHINKS IT IS LIKE A WEASEL
 This string of characters has 23 letters and 5 spaces, a total of 28 different characters that must be placed in exact sequence.
 Dawkins claims that if a monkey typed long enough or if letters could otherwise be selected by chance, such as via a computer program, that this exact line would eventually be produced.
 Following are some observations..

Tips for Family Devotions - Feb. 7
  For more on this subject see Keeping the Kids in the Social Media Age, a new course for 2023. --
The daily family altar (family devotion) is very important. It is a time when the family can meet regularly and consistently to worship God and study His Word. It is a time to read the Bible and discuss it. It is a time to memorize Scripture. It is a time to pray together.
“The day of family altars is disappearing as quickly as our youth. Families have relegated the teaching of biblical truth to their church and to their Christian schools. It is my belief that the number of homes having a family altar, where the entire family is involved, would directly correspond to the percentage of young people leaving the church. The primary agency for teaching.. Read More
The Southern Baptist Convention and Homosexuality - Feb. 6
In the book What Is the Emerging Church? (2008), we warn that the emerging church is weak on the issue of homosexuality. Brian McLaren, for example, says, “Frankly, many of us don’t know what we should think about homosexuality” (“Brian McLaren on the Homosexual Question,” Jan. 23, 2006, blog.christianitytoday.com). Chris Seay says, “Approach homosexuals without condemnation but with God’s love and the gospel” (ChurchRelevance.com, June 19, 2007).
 This confused thinking became front and center in the Southern Baptist Convention with the election in June 2018 of J.D. Greear as president. (He was reelected to a second term in 2019 and this was extended until 2021 due to Covid lockdowns.) In 2014, in a message before the ERLC [Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission] National Conference on “The Gospel, Homosexuality, and the Future of Marriage,” Greear said, “We have to..
