Wednesday Link List

Lots of good stuff this week. Take the time!

Now Go Do It

About the Blogroll:

This blog has a rather interesting link list in the sidebar. Blogs mentioned are chosen because they are (a) faith focused and (b) posting regularly. The doctrinal flavor of the blogs listed is quite varied, but I don’t include blogs that appear to have more “agenda” than content. Some blogs are listed somewhat permanently, some disappear and return a month later. Together, they represent almost one fifth of the bloggers that I have bookmarked in my computer and read regularly. Some of the blogs appearing in the Wednesday link list end up on this page later on, while others have a key post that I feel is worth mentioning, while at the same time I haven’t gotten to know them well enough yet to establish them as a link or imply endorsement. Recommendations are invited.

  1. You linked to Clay Gentry and later mentioned the KJV only folks. As I shared with Clay, the King James renders great fish in the Book of Jonah but whale in the New Testament. When asked for a sign in Matthew 12:40 Jesus replies “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Modern translations all say great fish or huge fish, but for KJV folks there is a scriptural context for JONAS being swallowed by a whale.

  2. I don’t usually comment here, but every night around 10 PM (EST) I check back to see which of the links you actually clicked on. Sadly, today you most liked the one about the woman dressing inappropriately and the question about how frequent couples should be intimate. Sigh.

    The link list starts assembling two or three days ahead. I thought for sure someone would pick up on the alternative version of How Great Thou Art turning up on the same day we’re remembering George Beverly Shea. The group is called BridgeBox.

  3. Your build a pharisee displays incredible ignorance. Certainly there were Pharisees of the type you describe but they were the only group Jesus bothered to have dialogue with. All you do is display that you have the same prejudice you ascribe to the Pharisees. Try to read what the Bible actually says and what extra Biblical sources teach that trot out what you’ve heard from pulpits and imagine that it’s actually in the Bible. Here’s a simple challenge: Find the verse that says “Saul became Paul.”

    • Acts 13: 9 Then Saul, who was also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked straight at Elymas and said, 10 “You are a child of the devil and an enemy of everything that is right! You are full of all kinds of deceit and trickery. Will you never stop perverting the right ways of the Lord?
