“Saddam Hussein, who was accused of killing more than 100,000 civilians during his 23-year rule over oil-rich Iraq, was hanged early this morning in Baghdad for crimes against humanity for a 1982 massacre of Shiite Muslims.
He was 69.
The dictator was led to the gallows by several masked men, images broadcast by Iraqi TV showed. Hussein was bareheaded and wearing a dark coat and white shirt. He had a “swift” death, Iraqi officials who witnessed the execution said in interviews on Al Arabiya TV. Hussein declined to make any final comments and refused to wear a hood, the officials said.”

Thoughts on this?

Relevant Magazine asked seven Christian leaders this question.

“What do you see as the greatest challenge for young Christians in the next ten years?”

Mars Hill, Seattle, pastor, Mark Driscoll comments, “There is a strong drift toward the hard theological left. Some emergent types (want) to recast Jesus as a limp-wrist hippie in a dress with a lot of product in his hair, who drank decaf and made pithy Zen statements about like while shopping for the perfect pair of shoes. In Revelation, Jesus is a pride fighter with a tattoo down his leg, a sword in his hand and the commitment to make someone bleed. That is a guy I can worship. I cannot worship the hippie, diaper, halo Christ because I cannot worship a guy I can beat up. I fear some are becoming more cultural than Christian, and without a big Jesus who has authority and hates sin as revealed in the Bible, we will have less and less Christians, and more and more confused, spiritually self-righteous blogger critics of Christianity.”

Asked the same question, Mars Hill, Grandville, pastor, Rob Bell comments,“The unbelievable amassing of wealth and consumer goods that we have at out fingertips in American culture. Our greatest challenge will be to learn how to move this into blessings for others, or we will continue to be more selfish and indifferent to the cries of the world. These insane amounts of goods that are at our service are not doing good things to our souls.”

The reason these two answers jumped out at me was simply the fact that they were so different. I’m curious everyone’s thoughts on both answers. Also, what is your answer to that same question?

Nashville To Gatlinburg… Twice

A friend and I were asked to drive a 26-foot moving truck full of equipment to Gatlinburg the day after Christmas. We started about 6:30 the night of the 26th, then 4 hours and 225 miles later arrived.
I have never had an interest in going to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg until now. It looks like a pretty interesting place. We stayed there about ten minutes, dropped off the truck and drove back, arriving home around 4:00 am the 27th. I’m not sure I would recommend the trip with a fever and cough, but for those in Nashville, it seems like a pretty neat place to visit.
