I’m OK… thanks for asking. I’m just not sure how I really want to use this blog or if I want to use it. I added the “Blogging Without Obligation” badge a long time ago and adhere to its principles. I’m glad to know that many people missed my blogging… but… I’m one of those […]

In case you didn’t notice…

July 26th, 2008 · 1 Comment

there’s some actual discussion/banter/give-and-take happening on this very blog! It is happening over in the comments on this post about Mark Driscoll’s words about the popular book, The Shack.

Whose Religion Is Christianity?: The Gospel beyond the West

May 26th, 2008 · Comments Off on Whose Religion Is Christianity?: The Gospel beyond the West

I’m not going to link to it because it contains a lot of immature language, but a while ago I caught part of a video where someone posed the question, “If you didn’t know anything about the Bible and came across one and started reading it, would you believe it?” The guy talking was a […]

The Strawman Is Coming!

May 22nd, 2008 · 3 Comments

Benny Hinn is coming to Taipei August 14-16. This nutjob is the poster boy for all of the bad impressions people have of Christianity… if you think that Christianity is about: money, power, control, hypocrisy, charismatic figures, tradition, social status, etc etc etc… Benny Hinn should be your very best friend because he embodies ALL […]

Evolution

May 9th, 2008 · 1 Comment

An Evangelical Manifesto

May 9th, 2008 · 3 Comments
