    Roger Olsen basically recited North Carolina’s “Anti-LGBT” bathroom law…and we have been boycotted by many major entertainers, and most of the major sports leagues.

    It’s not as easy as he thinks.

    It’s always interesting to see which link/article generates the most comments.

    Re: what Jesus taught and social media: funny how people forget that Jesus said what is spoken of in secret will be shouted from the rooftops!

    if I lived in NC, I’d be hanging out with Rev Barber.

  5. Josh the Baptist says:

    He seems like a cool guy, but no celebrities will hang out with me.

    Although I tend to avoid reading Salon’s stuff the article about the INK movement was interesting.

    They seem to be in it for the money.

  7. Josh the Baptist says:

    What they described doesn’t really sound like a movement.

    You know, I love wandering through the links (thank you Michael and Eric) to see some of what is going on. Today, however, it struck me that so much of what I read and pondered (both from the right and the left) seemed to have little relationship to what I recognize as Church. It seems that we are in an age in which the mosaic of the Church has been smashed with a sledge hammer and we’re wandering around picking up the fragments hoping we can figure out how they are supposed to fit together…

    That’s the feeling I get every time I try to compile this …

    “Too often theology has been taught in a rigidly defensive way: “This stuff you are to believe and share; these are the errors you are to recognize and reject.” Simply projecting orthodoxy that way doesn’t give much stimulus to the mind because the conclusion is determined before you’ve asked the question, and devotionally it is barren.

    Such an approach shrinks the soul. Focusing on the greatness of God, though, enlarges the soul. Paradoxically, it makes you a greater person by making you a smaller person. It makes you humble. It lowers you in your own estimate. I’ve always tried to present truth so that it will humble the sinner and exalt the Savior, and so produce a Christian who’s of larger stature than one who simply knows orthodoxy and is prepared to recite it on demand.”

    One good Englishman deserves another…

    “Do not treat the doctrines of the Creed as a string of impersonal items, like a row of bricks picked out of a box. Treat them as doctrines of Christ, as so many aspects of the mystery of which he is the center… See Christian doctrine in this way, and it will make all the difference to your study of it… Think of study rather as being refreshed from the deep, sparkling well of truth which is Christ himself.”

    My, my…put #10 & #11 together and you’ll know why I’m joining the communion that lodged them both…

    May we drink deeply indeed!
