Teddy e-mailed me this site. I finally had a chance to read some of them. Many of the article are fantastic and the one’s they post up are very insightful to ministry and understanding the bible and the times we are living in.
A bit that I liked (out of the many articles and snippets) was this:
“… I contacted the Christian bookseller to let them know this was not a Christian book. They did not care.
Here is their response:
It might be useful for you to understand our philosophy of product selection. Because we attract and service a wide range of customers (from pastors to homemakers, and seminary students to parents) whose interests and theological tastes vary enormously, we sometimes carry products that contradict each other or that are written by people that not all of our customers agree with theologically. It is this kind of diversity in selection that has become a trademark of our company. We don’t want to become a theological or social ‘censor’ of the books we carry, but we also try to remain selective. So we tend to carry most popular Christian titles unless there is a compelling reason not to…”
‘Rallying To Be Heard’ is a good article too (at the very bottom):
“So why these big displays of prayer and fasting rallies held in large stadiums with lots of advertising and cries for support- a large following of people and a large cash flow to go along with it? Are the prayers of these people heard by God? Or, it is just a display to control and manipulate thousands at a time towards an agenda of man? Usually there is a reason behind these rallies – to end abortion, to end homosexuality, to honor marriage between one man and one woman, judicial rulings in the courts, etc.
But again, there is more to the story, I think. These rallies are done by those who think they can change the world with their words, speaking the right things at the right time in accordance to what is viewed as “God’s will” or what God is doing in “this hour” because we are at a “pivotal moment in history that can be missed”. Someone has “received the prophetic word” or the “mandate” from God “for such a time as this”.”
May the site bless you with it’s articles!
Enjoy! (And thanks Teddy for this!)
