Dan Stelter presents The Anxiety Support Network – What the Bible Says About Anxiety posted at Anxiety Support Network Anxiety Recovery Blog, saying, “A brief article that describes how the Bible addresses anxiety, and why Christians with anxiety disorders have every reason to think positive and live a healthy life.”
Dr Matthew Flannagan presents Does Abortion Benefit the Fetus? A Critique of Himma Part 1 posted at MandM, saying, “Kenneth Einar Himma has offered an argument that even if a fetus is a human being, laws permitting feticide are compatible with the harm principle because aborting the fetus causes it to go straight to heaven, which benefits it rather than harms it. I set out an important objection to Himma’s argument, an objection articulated by Mark Murphy, which appeals to the common law doctrine of novus actus interveniens. I go on to address three objections that Himma has made to this line of criticism to his argument and conclude that his position is mistaken.”
