Book of the Month: Who Moved the Stone?


     Albert H. Ross (who wrote under the pseudonym "Frank Morison") was a prolific writer during the late 1800's and staunchly skeptical of the Biblical claim that Christ rose from the dead. So he set out to disprove, in his mind, this irrational claim. Using the synoptic gospels, Ross retraced the events leading up to Christ’s death, burial, and supposed resurrection, trying to determine if the accounts are a faithful retelling of actual historical occurrences, or if they were fabricated some time after. Ross' discoveries shook not only his world, but that of thousands who read the result of his journey: a powerful book entitled Who Moved the Stone?.

The Messy Love of Easter - Guest Post

   The wonderful Belle from Seeing Everything Else agreed to do a guest post for this Easter. After reading, be sure to check out her blog here, for which she consistently posts encouraging and convicting articles. 


Horrifying. Scandalous. These aren't the words we usually associate with Easter.

Our normal thoughts fall more along the lines of pastel flowers, cute chicks and bunnies, and Precious Moments kids kneeling gently beneath a brown ceramic cross.

And those are sweet. Those are cute. Those are clean. But they're wrong.

// Christian? //

Sitting amongst the cream of my generation
my soul was filled with lamentation.
Here, supposed Christians
flirt with temptations
display carnal affections
consider vain imaginations
lust for worldly commendations
seek ungodly occupations
forget Scriptural meditations
shirk Bible memorizations
reject sound admonitions
ignore godly exhortations
despise Biblical limitations
on the road of continual degradations
are these really Christians?

So to any reading my composition
let it be a call for self-examination.
Do I obey the Lord without indignation? 
Honor my God without fluctuation?
Serve my King without hesitation?
Love my Savior without reservation?
Cry out to Him amidst temptation?
Am I on the road of heavenly sanctification?
Am I truly a Christian?

"Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?"
