Weekly Round-Up: The Family in Uganda, a New Blog, Christian/Muslim Dialogue, and Grudem on Boundaries

Here's this week's round-up:

1) Esther Namugoji and Henry Lubega, "Living by the law of love" and "X-tian group worships Jesus with sex" in the Sunday Vision newspaper (Uganda). I have previously mentioned the activity of The Family cult in Uganda, but now one of Uganda’s leading newspapers has published two articles reporting on its presence in their country--with additional news stories promised in the future. These articles continue to demonstrate the error that exists throughout East Africa.

2) Paul Heidebrecht, The Listening to African Church Leaders blog. While this blog is new (with only two entries posted so far), it is already in my feed reader. Heidebrecht is serving with the ministry Christian Leaders for Africa, and I am always thrilled to find others promoting theological education in Africa.

3) Justin Taylor, "Do Muslims Worship the True God? A Bridge Too Far" on the Between Two Worlds blog. Taylor has posted the latest salvo into the current controversy surrounding Christian/Muslim dialogue. His response is definitely worth reading. And in case you haven't been able to keep up, he also provides links to the main entries in this online conversation so far.

4) Wayne Grudem, "When, Why & Where To Draw Boundaries" in the 9Marks eJournal (March/April 2008). While this entire issue is definitely worth downloading and reading, Grudem's article stresses the dangers of false teaching as well as how churches should respond.
