Just a few of my favorite shots from last week.

DIvine Commodity blog tour

Skye Jethani has a new book out there: The Divine Commodity. Today he is on a blog tour (complete list of blogs and radio spots can be found here). Bob Hyatt has started what looks to be a good conversation with Skye. You should stop by and add your thoughts and questions. Also be sureContinue Reading

Guest Blogger (of sorts…): Transaction Theology

Joel Hunter (of BHT fame) responded to my question about transaction theology: Hi there, Aaron. Michael has written a great article about this subject: http://www.internetmonk.com/archive/imonk-101-out-of-business-with-god. In general, a transaction is an exchange, a quid pro quo. It is also the basis for all religion. You do X, and the deity does Y in return.And thisContinue Reading

.:hay’kin’en:. » Two Experiences

Noel Heikkinen shares about a couple of experiences he had yesterday. These experiences circle around the homosexual community and the Church community.  Go read it, ponder it, and please pray for the church. .:hay’kin’en:. » Two Experiences

Reading Scripture

bob.blog: The New in the Old and the Old in the New Bob Hyatt has a great post about what lens he reads scripture through, or how he understands the meaning of any and all texts in the Bible. To sum it up in one word: Jesus. I’m with Bob on this one. Whole heatedly. The whole point ofContinue Reading

Another Voice

I don’t know how I feel about the whole “global warming” scare. I just have a hard time blindly believing people telling me that something horrible is about to happen, so I should join there bandwagon. I don’t know, maybe that makes me un-compassionate and “right winged” or something. Anyway, here is a video thatContinue Reading

Read this:

Jared Wilson rants about the Gospel and it’s relation to cool. Good, subversive, hope filled stuff.

Super Snack!

Anyone up for some Barpy?

The Dead Will Live

…Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, the son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing. And greater worksContinue Reading

Where is the Body?

People have been trying to get Christians to shut up for as long as we have been around (Check out the stories in Acts 4, 5, and 6-8, for some of the earliest records of the attempts to shut down this love revolution). The attempts have been unfruitful, yet they keep coming. One of theContinue Reading

Biblical Authority

Whatever authority the Bible carries as a trustworthy book, it derives from the trustworthiness if the divine revelation it discloses and ultimately from the Spirit who infallible speaks through it. In declaring the trustworthiness of the Bible, therefore, we must keep in mind that it is ultimately not the book itself which we are affirming.Continue Reading

First Word

“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; you shall have no other gods before me.” (Deut. 5:6-7) First, God. God’s presence in the present, the now, is where we also are present, the condition in which we live, we and ourContinue Reading

Something to think about…

Here is an interesting quote: Where there is forgiveness of these [acts of rebellion and sin], there is no longer any offering for sin. Any thoughts?

The Body of Christ

Imonk starts of the year talking about the beauty of God ruining church for him. I resonate with his story, even if my denominational history is different. Let me just say, I firmly believe that none of us belong in any church. We only find our place in the kingdom by being the body ofContinue Reading

Sectarianism

“Sectarianism is to the community what heresy is to theology, a willful removal of a part from the whole. The part is, of course, good- a work of God. But apart from the whole it is out of context and therefore diminished, disengaged from what it needs from the whole and from what’s left ofContinue Reading

About the atonement

Scot McKnight has a good series of posts about the atonement. The whole series is worth the read, but especially check out todays installment. Scot hits the mark in pointing out that our understanding of what the atonement actually accomplished is often misconstrued by our understanding of sin as only moral failure.  may the LordContinue Reading

Read this

Here is a good and much needed letter to “emerging” believers in America. It is good to remember that re-thinking church is not un-doing Christianity and re-defining the Gospel… but rather it is re-understanding that the mission of Jesus is God’s plan of salvation, and that believers are a part of this work. We should, therefore, liveContinue Reading

Missional Hearts

Some good thoughts about the “End of the Spear” controversy from Sled Dog.  Very worth the read.

Prayer and Poverty

Romans 8.26 “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.” “To ask how we are to get our prayers answered is a different point of view from the New Testament.Continue Reading

This just in…

Wyman Richardson (of the former Y-blog) is re-posting his “baptist paleo-orthodoxy” project over at Communio Sanctorum (Yes, that is correct; a baptist minister is posting regularly on a blog that is “a Reformational contribution to catholicity“. How cool is that!). Read it; it’s good stuff, well worth time and thought.

Don't Forget Jesus!

This is a must read. Let us never forget why the Bible and the Church exist.
