Stuff I found on the Internet today

Pretty eclectic mix but that's what the Internet is all about.

Here is a fascinating, in-depth story from Michael Yon about the arrest of an Iraqi police general in the Anbar province (via).

Gary Shavey interviews Dr. Kevin Vanhoozer here and here (via).

I've found that I lose respect for those who consider Ron Paul a viable candidate.

Whenever I read an article about Spong, this verse immediately jumps into my head:

1 Corinthians 15:12 Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. 15 We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.
Keep it in mind when you read all that he rejects about Christianity. My question is: why bother with Christianity at all? Why follow Jesus since the Bible has been co-opted? How do you know what he actually said?

Paris Hilton has been "preparing and praying" and attending church before she enters jail.
