Vote Biblical Values

October 31, 2012

Billy Graham entered the political fray last week with a Vote Biblical Values campaign. While not endorsing a specific candidate, he does provide some helpful voting tips: I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge […]

Love vs. The Bible

October 29, 2012

I’d like to take a more focused look at one of the criticisms I discussed in my post All You Need Is Love. Specifically, progressive Christians are often accused of overlooking, ignoring, tolerating and even accepting clearly sinful behavior because of their infatuation with love. This is perhaps no more evident than in the ongoing […]

Why Not Vine’s?

Why Is Life Worth Living? (according to Woody Allen)

October 20, 2012

In his 1978 movie Manhattan, Woody Allen’s character offers these thoughts on life: Why is life worth living? That’s a very good question. Well, there are certain things I guess that make it worthwhile. Like what? Okay, for me, I would say, Groucho Marx, to name one thing and Willie Mays, and the second movement […]

Review: A Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans

October 18, 2012

Following closely in the footsteps of A.J. Jacobs’ 2007 book The Year of Living Biblically: One Man’s Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible, blogger and writer Rachel Held Evans offers her own contribution to the genre of reality-show inspired memoirs in the unimaginatively titled A Year of Biblical Womanhood: How a […]
