Links of the week

This is the part of the blog where Larry, er Pilgrim, comes out and gives us the links of the week.

The first link--Ape Fest
The Original Planet of the Apes movie is one of my all time favorites.
From the novelty it was as a kid, to the entertaining story, to the parable that picks on everybody to the ending-it's well done.
The recent remake was heavy handed and had an agenda for one point of view. It felt two dimensional, although the makeup and special effects have certainly improved over the years-as one would expect.
This site is a small tribute site to the original movies. It includes audio links of dialogue from the movie. Dr Zaius may have been a hypocrite, but he understood human depravity. You can listen to this one on page 2 of the audio link, as Dr Zaius has Cornelius read from the Apes' Sacred Scrolls. (It is shortened from the original a bit)-

"Beware the beast man, for he is the devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport, or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him. Drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death."

It's a fun little site.

The second link--Sinclair Ferguson

One of my favorite contemporary writers and speakers is Sinclair Ferguson. This site contains some of his sermons and articles. It is part of a Scottish preachers site which has pages for Thomas Chalmers, George Gillespie, John Kennedy, John Knox and Robert Murray M'Cheyne. It also has off site links to other Scottish preachers.
It also appears they plan to add pages for John Murray, Thomas Boston and Horatio Bonar. It has a wealth of godly writings which will edify, encourage, and exhort you.
Check it out.

Yours too?
He is a very gifter speaker & writer, with a real knack for getting his point across clearly, and not dumbing things down.
