Welcome to Christian Carnival CCLXII. I could always call this the “I’m too tired to think of a theme” edition, but I’m really just presenting the posts in order this time.
There are several really good ones, so check them out.
Chris Brooks presents A Non-Religious Case Against Same-Sex Marriage posted at Homeward Bound, saying, “An argument that same-sex marriage is unhealthy for our society that we can take into the public square.”
ChristianPF presents How to be a Biblically responsible investor posted at Money in the Bible | Christian Personal Finance Blog, saying, “We are stewards and have a responsibility to invest in appropriate companies. These are some tips to help us…”
Josanne Anthony presents Dolls **some adult content** posted at Brilliant Babblings. No, don’t worry. We’re not starting to link to adult content, though the post does ask you just what you want to put in front of your pre-teen children. On another blog, she presents Jesus Picks Up Pennies posted at The Radiant View.
Diane R presents The Three Dialectics posted at Crossroads: Where Faith and Inquiry Meet, saying, “Adult Sunday School classes can use one of three dialectics. One should probably be ditched; one should be used at times and the third one is the one that will release the class from boredom and bridge the generations.”
Andy Deane presents Pastor Andy Deane’s New Book – Learn to Study the Bible posted at How to Study the Bible – 40 Bible Study Methods!, which tells about a new book on how to study the Bible.
Bob MacDonald presents Is faith a leap? posted at Sufficiency, in which he discusses the relationship between faith and science. On his other blog he presents Rarely Used Words in the Psalter – 17. I must personally note that Bob’s work on the Psalter is well worth reading, though not for the faint of heart.
David presents Intimacy With Christ, Taking Thoughts Captive, Day Two posted at TransformSA Blog, saying, “God Bless!”
Chasing the Wind presents Walking Together posted at Chasing the Wind, saying, “What do the Pittsburgh Steelers and a good church have in common? Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians can teach us how to play nice together.”
Danny presents What Do We Pray For? A Look at the Sermon on the Mount posted at Boston Bible Geeks, saying, “A short look at Matthew 7:7-11 in the context of the rest of the Sermon on the Mount.”
Michelle presents Ephesians 5:22 – Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. posted at Thoughts and Confessions of a Girl Who Loves Jesus…. Oh no! Taking on that long “s” word. Check out what she has to say!
Mark Olson presents On Celibacy posted at Pseudo-Polymath, saying, “I’ve heard the phrase “celibacy is a calling which only few of us can answer.” I think this is exactly wrong. Celibacy is a universal Christian calling. Do you agree or not?”
From Pastoral Musings we get Bibilical Manhood: Man The Crown of Creation, Not The All – A call for men to remember that humanity is God’s crowning work of Creation. Man, the individual male, is not, but should be a servant-leader in his home.
