Five Star Links

Each Friday, we share links we found especially interesting or inspiring during the previous week. 


When theologians talk about the doctrine of divine simplicity or God being simple - what do they mean, and is it important? This Tabletalk article by Dr. James Dolezal answers those questions:
All that is in God is God. He, being His own existence and essence, and so not derived from causes as are all other beings, is alone adequate to ultimately account for all that is caused-to-be. He is the One from whom, and through whom, and to whom are all things (Rom. 11:36). This identifies Him as the lone worthy object of all our worship and gratitude. All things look ultimately to Him for their being, but He looks to none.


In the article How to Help Someone With Depression, we are given some really sensitive, helpful advice about how to be a support for someone who is struggling with depression.


Speaking of depression, do you know William Cowper's story? He battled depression for most of his life, but also wrote some truly beautiful hymns. (If you aren't regularly reading—or listening to—Stephen Nichols' 5 Minutes in Church History, you should be.)
