Blog Spotting and New Links

It’s been a while since I’ve done any blogspotting and there are a few articles that I have found to be intriguing recently as well as a couple of new bloggers I am adding to my blogroll.

The articles are written by three men whom I consider to be smarter than the average bear. The first of these is Dr. Al Mohler, President of Southern Seminary. He has posted an article on Joe Biden’s view of when life begins that is most interesting. The second is an article by Denny Burk, also of Southern Seminary, relating to some theological ramifications of the role of women in leadership. The third is a series of articles written by my brother some time back comparing the moral issues of slavery and abortion. Many are writing about this now, but his work was the first that I have seen on the topic and the best. It should be required reading for all voters. I sincerely hope he has the opportunity to have this work published someday.

I have also made some updates to my blogroll. I have dropped some due to inactivity. Others were dropped because of either aberrant theology or because they had developed a voice that is not consistent with what I want my blog to represent. I firmly believe that how we say something is just as important as what we say. (And that’s all I have to say about that.) 🙂

You will notice that I am adding a couple of new links, as well. One of these is long-time commentor and visitor here, Kansas Bob. KB is always willing to engage in stimulating conversation and yet maintain a gracious tone. He posts some interesting articles on politics, theology, culture and humor. If you don’t find him at home, you might check the nearest Starbuck’s.

Another occasional visitor who has a blog worth reading is Sis. Harriet Peterson, better known as SelahV. She is a pastor’s wife who is a gifted writer. She has the ability to speak her mind with a Christ-like spirit and that is something I value.

I have also added a link to Baptist Press Sports where you will occasionally find articles that I have written. This is a good website of sports information from a Christian perspective. Check it out, if you haven’t already.

I link to blogs and sites that bless me and challenge me. Some are very close to my views, some are rather radically different on some points. The links in my sidebar may lead to blogs of people with whom I disagree theologically, politically or even about sports, but I have come to realize that through gracious exchanges, we can become better people. I hope these sites will bless you as they have me.

  4. Thanks for the link, Gordon. Hopefully the slavery/abortion analogy will help change someone’s thinking. I’ve been glad to see others using it.
