Hard Work vs. Workaholism

David MurrayWhether you’re a hard worker, a workaholic, or neither, I commend to you these two recent posts.

Matt Perman defends working hard by looking at Proverbs (Prov 12:27; 18:9; 19:15; 24:30) and Paul (Acts 20:34–35; 2 Thes 3:7–9). It’s worth a quick read.

On the flip side, Tim Challies interviews David Murray about workaholism as part of the Connected Kingdom podcast. As one who throws himself into his work and constantly struggles to keep everything in its proper place, I found it helpful and challenging. It’s worth your twelve minutes.

Greg Bahnsen Lectures and Debates on YouTube

Greg BahnsenOn Saturday night I discovered the Greg Bahnsen channel on YouTube, which has five video lectures (in 32 parts) and two audio debates (in 20 parts). Greg Bahnsen delivered the video lectures in 19911 as a five-part series, Basic Training for Defending the Faith (Amazon | Monergism), to soon-to-be college students. I spent a little while listening to bits and pieces of them, and they look terrific. The audio debates are the classic against Gordon Stein and the lesser-known against George Smith. I’ve heard them both before—the former more than half-a-dozen times. If you haven’t yet listened to them, I’d encourage you to do so, especially the one against Stein.

Here’s the complete list of everything that’s available:

Together for the Gospel Live for $5

Together for the Gospel LiveI stumbled across a blog post this week (can’t remember where) that had a video embedded of the men from the Together for the Gospel Conference in 2008 singing “Before the Throne of God Above.” I probably watched it a dozen times or more, I enjoyed it so much. So I went to go check out the album at the Sovereign Grace Music store and found out that they’re having a special sale all February. That means it ends today. All music albums are only $5 for the downloadable version and $6 for the CD version.

I picked up the Together for the Gospel Live MP3 Download Set and have been thoroughly enjoying it. I heartily commend it to you.

20 Tracks of Classical Guitar for $2.99

Amazon is currently offering Guitar Sampler, a 20-track album of classical guitar music, for only $2.99—the price of just three individual tracks in the album.

GAudi: Google’s Audio Indexing

Google’s new audio indexing, GAudi, looks very promising. Finally the ability to find what you’re looking for in audio or video without listening to the whole thing! This has huge potential for sermons and lectures and could really make audio and video more accessible sources for academic research.

I wish I had access to this technology when I was running down this quote.
