Sorry for the short absence. Studying, some internet woes, family commitments and work all contributed to not posting.
I owe Lou Martuneac an answer from our discussion over at the Pulpit blog, so that will be my first priority. It is a rather interesting discussion, but I am not sure that we will end up agreeing as much as I thought initially.
With the upcoming elections, Puritan Lad over at his blog http://covenant-theology.blogspot.com/
is running a series on common concerns for Christians in society, and what the Biblical answers are. Check it out.
