Ad Extra this week is a smattering of different blogs & bloggers from around the internet. Take the time to read the articles attached to these links and contemplate many of the things they challenge the church in.

TGC: Church on Fire–An article on the persecution of modern day church in Niger. This article gives a real life example of Hebrews 10:34. “Some in our neighborhood were not spared. One Christian brother whose home and place of worship were looted and burned, had the crowds calling for his crucifixion (since he had preached the gospel on national television) as the flames rose. Thankfully, the Lord had also allowed him to leave minutes before the mobs arrived. Another of my Nigerien friends who pastors a local church lost all his family’s belongings, including his home and place of worship, even family birth certificates, but would only repeat, “This is such a blessing, because God promised these things would come. Now the church will grow.””

Tim Challies: 7 Lessons from 50 Shades of Grey–A challenging look at the cultural movement to accept what is unholy. “Many of us are so bound up in the culture in which we live that we aren’t even beginning to be shocked by material that a generation ago would have left a significant proportion of the congregation gasping for air. It’s not just a problem out there in the world, but a problem within the church as well.”

The Briefing–Dr. Mohler always does an excellent job of engaging as a Christian in a world that is opposed to God. Take the time to listen to Dr. Mohler’s interaction with news and other things that effect us as Christians.
