Around the Web – 7/9/2008

  • Gabriel’s Vision (Messiah Stone). Todd Bolen provides a good overview of the latest archaeological discovery that is supposed to “shake our basic view of Christianity.” (Does anyone even remember last year’s “faith-shaking” discovery? I’m just surprised this didn’t come out at Easter.)
  • Who Really Profits the Most from the Price of Gasoline? “Once State and Federal excise taxes are paid, anywhere from 30-60 cents (approximately) of every gallon of gasoline goes to the government in taxes. The profit oil companies make on a gallon of gas? About 10 cents.”
  • China to Provide Free Bibles during Olympic Games. “About 10,000 bilingual copies of the Bible will be distributed and another 30,000 copies of the New Testament will also be available during the games, but none will be provided in public hotels. The cover of the Gospels will sport an Olympics logo.”
  • Worst. Congress. Ever. “The congressional job approval is 9%. Disapproval, 52%. Among independents, only 3% approve of Congress. That’s within the margin of error, which means there is a chance no independent approves.” Ouch!
  • Free Online Animated Greek Course. Presented by Professor Ted Hildebrandt of Gordon College. (You will need Adobe Flash Player – free download here.)
