Deuteronomy for the modern man

Funny article from The Atlantic

"Laws Concerning Food and Drink
Of the hoofed animals, broiled or ground into burgers, you may eat, but not in the living room. Of the cloven-hoofed animal, plain or with cheese, you may eat, but not in the living room. Of the cereal grains, of the corn and of the wheat and of the oats, and of all the cereals that are of bright color and unknown provenance you may eat, but not in the living room. "

Is God's Love Unconditional?

I appreciate the intellectual depth that John Piper brings to Christianity. His website is a great place to start for a richer theological understanding of Christianity beyond the two sentence fights you see played out on CNN and on the side of buses in the U.K..

A great example is this blog post in which he deconstructs "unconditional love" and points out that while God does have unconditional love, it is not for everyone. While this is a hard thing to hear, I think it is a necessary assertion for other aspects of Christian theology (or at least my flavor) to hold together.

"There is such a thing as unconditional love in God, but it’s not what most people mean by it. "

Word of the Day: Gastropub

Photo courtesy of urbanbohemian

While poking about on the internets tonight I discovered a new word, "Gastropub". My Father's Office is a gastropub. The Crow Bar is a gastropub. All the cool hang-outs are now gastropubs

The Dictionary thing on my computer clues me in:

"gastropub |ˈgastrəˌpəb|
noun Brit.
a pub that specializes in serving high-quality food. ORIGIN 1990s: blend of gastronomy and pub."

You learn a little something every day.

Today's obsession is with mandarinquats. A cross between a kumquat and a mandarin tangerine, you eat them whole, peel and all. And while my family says they are sour and gross and taste like rind. I find them strangely pleasant with a delicious after-taste.

Johanna's Ph.D. on mobility

Johanna commenting on what maps take from our mobility while at the same time enabling it.

"Most importantly, though, local legibility is the legibility of practice - it reflects the ways in which people work in, engage with, and make use of the world around them, rather than the abstracted view associated with panoptic legibility."

Cheney vs. Jesus

CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Obama making U.S. less safe, Cheney says ォ - Blogs from CNN.com

"These are evil people. And we're not going to win this fight by turning the other cheek," [Cheney] said.


Matthew 5:38-50

"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.' But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

I know that governing is hard, and there are some really difficult decisions to be made, but following Jesus is not about doing it when it's easy or feels good, it's about doing it when it's hard and you struggle and hate it. Because that's when it matters. That is when you are being obedient. That is when you are glorifying God. That is when your character is changing. That is when you are walking with Jesus not just speaking platitudes. Jesus has been there. That was what going to the cross was all about. It was an act of obedience taking precedence over his personal desires - for the greater good - when it seemed stupid.

I am a little rattled at all the Christians who have bought into the mindset of the previous administration and rejected the current one. You may not like his approach to governing but to suggest that Obama is not doing a Godly job of leading us and the previous administration was is not very well substantiated by quotes like this one.

I think the question for today can be credited to Cheney, who makes us ask ourselves, "What is the fight we are trying to win?"

MIT Tech Review Love: "Wireless Detectors for Dementia"

Technology Review: Wireless Detectors for Dementia

Wireless Detectors for Dementia

"Donald Patterson, a professor of informatics at the University of California, Irvine, says that the USF approach is more straightforward that those designed to monitor complex activities. "The more you get into the straight biological measurements . . . the easier it becomes," he says."

The hotter something is the less you should touch it.

I think my press skills are greatly increasing.
