Painting of Martin Luther (not to be confused with Glen Steinson)
Sometimes we think “out loud,” and I guess it happens sometimes when we write, too. I sent an e-mail to my friend Glen Steinson about a free software add-on from the American Bible Society that allows webmasters to have an entire Bible passage pop up over their page. (You can try it by clicking on this link — 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.) My friend and fellow ECA member Jerry Johnson of Christian Concourse Ministries had sent the information to me, and I found it so helpful that I wanted to share it with another Christian webmaster and podcaster; hence my e-mail to Glen.

Interview on Stewardship Weekly
Among those leaving comments this week was Glen Steinson of the Stewardship Weekly podcast. Glen interviewed me for Stewardship Weekly, episode 13: Jim Kerwin Introduces Us to the God ‘E37.’

- You can’t know the whole counsel of God if you don’t read the whole counsel of God. That means one of the disciplines in which you should engage as a disciple is to read the Bible regularly, cover to cover.
- When you find an Old Testament quote in the New Testament, go back and read the quote in context in the Old Testament. Often the speaker or the writer is assuming that his original audience is familiar with the passage, and that they are making more “truth connections” as a result. But for those of you who do this, how do you account for the fact that sometimes the New Testament quote seems very different from the Old Testament passage?
God’s Sovereignty in His First Popular Bible Translation
One great thing about attending any school — you make friends and connections with fellow students, whatever the subject. I graduated from Cliff Ravenscraft’s Podcasting A to Z course last month. A new friend, Brother Glen Steinson from Ontario, Canada, graduated from the May Podcasting A to Z course, and with both of us called to online ministry, the connection was made. (By the way, Cliff, the host of PodcastAnswerMan.com, has just posted — free! — a two-hour overview of how to podcast. Check out www.LearnHowToPodcast.com. If you wind up signing up for his Podcasting A to Z course, tell him Glen and I sent you.)
I went through the entire backlog of Glen’s Stewardship Weekly podcast, because I found that it’s worthwhile. A few episodes ago, he asked for folks to volunteer some financial testimonies. Poor Glen! Nobody else volunteered (at least to this point), so he was stuck with me when [click to continue…]
