You Can't NOT Have A Blog

The internet is all abuzz with fervent opinions about the "death of blogging" article in last month's Wired magazine. Whether you feel blogging is alive and well or yesterday's news, the Republican party is taking notice! John over at Human 3rror has written a pretty cool blog post about the different approaches of Democrats and Republicans to the use of the internet in political campaigns. Everybody can see that social networking made an enormous difference in the outcome …

Al Mohler Speaks: America Has Chosen a President

I've been experiencing a whirlwind of emotions in the last twenty-four hours. Even before Karl Rove said it around lunchtime, it was obvious who our next President would be. I listened to the speeches of both McCain and Obama, then went to bed. I went right to sleep. Why? Well, I was tired! And, I know Who is ultimately in charge. This morning I have struggled to articulate my own feelings about the situation, which is why I want to encourage you to read Al Mohler's post …

Welcome President Obama – My New President

Barack Obama has been declared, at this point, President-elect of the United States. My reaction? Welcome. I didn't choose him, but God did. I could not and did not vote for him because of some serious values-clashes. But now, It's time for us to prayerfully support the man God has chosen for this position. Let's be obedient to 1 Timothy 2:1-2 and undergird him in prayer daily. God has granted us this man as President in His sovereign wisdom. We may agree or not, but "the …

In this presidential election, moreso than others in the past, those who vote on the basis of the issue of the sanctity of life have been increasingly classified as "narrow-minded" and "single-issue obsessive." Yep, that's me. Well, I appreciate this well-worded post from Denny Burk. I don't know that I've heard my own opinion on the issue clarified as well. No matter what happens tomorrow, Christians ought to be confronted with these words... Denny Burk » My Closing …

Abortion is a Deal-Breaker for Me

Al Mohler published a blog article today entitled Is the Abortion Argument Changing?. It's excellent. At the end, he references a sermon by Russell Moore that makes the argument that Joseph (Jesus' step-father) was a "single-issue evangelical." I'm fairly progressive. I'm quite forward-thinking. But when it comes to the issue of life in relationship to politics, elections, legislation, etc., abortion is still a deal-breaker for me. Am I a narrow-minded single-issue …

John Piper says “Let Christians Vote As Though They Were Not Voting”

John Piper posted a great article about the Christian's attitude toward voting. I love the fact that voting, though an important privilege, doesn't ultimately determine eternal outcomes - evangelism and worship do. Voting is not the end-all, be-all of our approach to impacting culture. Read for yourself... Let Christians Vote As Though They Were Not Voting :: Desiring God Christian Resource Library. …
