Here is how you can compile the mother of all editors on Ubuntu 10.04 from source:
1. Obtain the source archive for Emacs from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/
2. Open a Terminal in Ubuntu and type:
A. sudo apt-get install build-essential libxpm-dev libgif-dev libtiff4-dev
B. This will install the necessary packages to compile Emacs.
3. Extract the Emacs archive downloaded in step 1 by typing: tar xvzf emacs-major_version-minor_version.tar.gz.
4. Change to the Emacs source directory. a.k.a. cd emacs-major_version-minor_version
5. Type: ./configure
6. Type: make
7. Type: sudo make install
This just in….US-CERT found to have plethora of security holes in their network. End of the world predicted in a matter of days.
Always Ready: Directions for Defending the Faith by Greg L. Bahnsen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a most excellent book as to how the Christian should be ready to defend the faith and I think it’s the only way to expose the “intellectual schizophrenia” that is within every non-Christian and that is at the core of their world view, which is a network of their presuppositions. The whole problem with an evidence based apologetic is that there is always room for a probability that it may not be true, which God never grants us as an option in scripture.

Dr. John MacArthur articulates the fundamental problem with the vulgarity of Mark Driscoll’s approach to preaching. I have listened to some of Driscoll’s sermons and everytime I do, I end up wanting to vomit his repugnant language to Mars.
ESV: Titus 2:8. “and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.”
Just ran across this from the Crosstalk Blog and had to re-read the article a couple of times. You can also read it here. It’s great they want to promote abstinence, but what happened to the great commission as stated in Matthew 28:18-20:
“And Jesus came and said to them, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t see anything in the text about promoting morality without first promoting the lawgiver of that morality. The priority in the time of Christ is the same it should be now; preach Christ crucified and then the Holy Spirits work of redemption will enable the redeemed to walk holy before the Lord and not just for population control.
