I just wanted to offer a couple of comments about Jan. 29 Logos for Mac review.

One statement in particular should be clarified: “Logos for Mac is everything Logos users have enjoyed in the windows environment but tailored for the elegance and functionality of the Mac.” There are several features missing in the Mac version that are present in the Windows version. To name a few, there is no Bible speed search; no add-ons work; notes and highlighting tools are not available; some of the resources do not work; adding new titles is more difficult; and it remains to be seen how Logos will go about releasing updates.

I am among those a bit disappointed with the Logos for Mac release. I believe the crossgrade is overpriced with too much missing. I appreciate Logos’ efforts on this and I hope those efforts continue. As it stands now, the Mac version is fine for basic work but is inadequate for my normal sermon preparation. Until the Mac version is more complete I will stick with running Logos under Fusion.

Nonetheless, it is good to see both Logos and Macs mentioned in this paper. I still like PCs but I switched to a Mac about a year ago and have really enjoyed it. I am also a big fan of the Windows version of Logos.

Other ‘valuable feature’

I read with interest the article by Robert L. Mounts regarding the English Standard Version Study Bible in the Jan. 15 edition of the Witness. I agree with Mounts’ review, however, I would also like to point out another valuable feature of this Bible.

When you purchase this study Bible you are given a code which enables you to access a Web site which includes the complete content of the print version at no additional cost. The online edition has unique features, including the ability to create personal online notes. In addition, you can do a word search and follow links between notes, articles, etc. It also gives you the ability to listen to audio recordings of the Scriptures.

As an adult Sunday School teacher I have found this Bible along with the online version to be very valuable in my personal devotional time, as well as lesson preparation.

Don’t fear IRS

For some time now preachers have been treading lightly in an effort to avoid losing their tax-exempt status. Well, the time has come to speak out—to call evil for what it is—evil!

We need to hear preaching that condemns abortion, period. But if the law allows it, young women need to know what they are doing. God loves “gay” people, but abhors their lifestyle. In His Word, He says it is an abomination to Him. Preachers need to preach this.

People need to know there are two options when this life is over: heaven or hell. If the upcoming generation is to continue in our faith we must stand up now. We must teach all of God’s Word, call sin what it is, given people their options and see souls won. In the Book of Jude it says we are to save some with gentleness and others “save with fear, pulling them out of the fire.”

We need to forget the money. God will bless our tithes even if the government takes part of it. Greed has destroyed America, as we have always known it. We can’t let it also destroy our churches.

Tony Dungy has a very inspirational new best selling book, Uncommon. This book has some new and exciting life lessons that teach you how to give some simple respect to yourself, to God and to women. With these and other great examples, this wonderful blueprint gives Christians the right path to travel. I highly recommend Uncommon.
