  1. Back to the Future of Baptist Identity via Moore to the Point on Jul 19, 2007. Dr. Moore explains why the Baptist Identity conference was so important. Quote, ““they are not all bloggers who are called bloggers.”
  2. Southern Baptists & the Weight Issu via intersect by markcombs1978. I would even go so far as to put it in the same category as Ascol’s resolution on integrity in church membership. Both of those resolutions, if they were taken seriously, would require us a Southern Baptists to take a hard look at who we are in such a way that it would call for radical changes. That, I am afraid, is too painful to be deal with seriously…
  3. A Muggle’s Look at Harry Potter via Excogitating Engineer by excogitatingengineer. By all accounts, the Harry Potter books are very well written and are difficult to criticize from a literary point of view. My goal is not to criticize the Harry Potter books, judge the author, or condemn or praise Christians who love the books. My goal is to provide an evaluation of how Christians should respond. I will be looking at the books from four two different perspectives: 1. Should Christians expose their children to Harry Potter? 2. How should Christian adults respond to Harry Potter? …
  4. How to Pray Through Scripture A Simple, Helpful L… via Gazing at Glory by Glorygazer. In the recent course on Biblical Spirituality I took, Dr. Don Whitney showed us how and why we should pray through Scripture. This practice has benefited me greatly, and I have been able to share it with some others. I requested Dr. Whitney’s permission to post handouts I have prepared for use in sharing this material, which he has granted…
  5. (Mis)Understanding Cliches Part 3 via Encounters with the Gospel by joshuamartin. Cliche #3: “Ask Jesus into your heart” Try to imagine what it would be like to being standing in front of the apostle Peter as he explains what just happened at the day of Pentecost. Peter gives a great explaination and then you ask him, “what must I do to be saved?” And Peter responds, “ask Jesus into your heart”…
  6. But Obama’s Not a Theologian via Colossians Three Sixteen by Brent. Part of the reason that I blog is for the interaction and exchange of ideas. Part of the way I work through issues is dialogue, and blogging is a great avenue for that. This means that there will be times when I write things people disagree with. This is not necessarily a bad thing. We’re not all going to agree about everything. That’s part of what makes life so interesting. I recently received some criticism on a fairly recent post about…
  7. To Be a Misfit in a World of Impermanence via Provocations & Pantings by Timmy Brister. In his book, No Place for Truth, David Wells argues that two features of the disabling of the church are impermanence and marketability. In the next two posts, I would like to address these two features individually with particular attention paid to my current situation in life. Perhaps you might be able to relate to some of the things I have been thinking about in this context. Let’s being with the issue of impermanence in the church…
