Randy’s Weekly Reads (5/1/15)


Time marches on! I can’t believe it’s already the end of the week, and also now it’s May! I only have two articles for you this week, but they’re good ones – enjoy!

Why God’s Will Isn’t Always Clear

I loved this article by Jon Bloom and particularly this insightful quote: “But one reason why God usually doesn’t give us specific guidance in our sometimes-perplexing decisions is that he places a higher priority on our being transformed than our being informed in order that we will be conformed to the image of Jesus (Romans 8:29).”

How Captain America is Practically Biblical

Anyone who knows me quickly discovers I’m not a big comic book movie fan (did we really need five Spiderman movies since 2002?), but my family – that’s another story. Consequently, it has been a challenging week in my house since all the talk has been about the new sequel Avengers: The Age of Ultron. Well, believe it or not, I found a great article by Paul Asay about the biblical lessons that can be gleaned from at least one of the heroes. Enjoy, but I still not seeing the movie anytime soon 🙂 !

Have a great weekend!
