Top Blog Posts of the Week 9/22/2012

Posted by Joshua Claycamp on

blogThis is a list of recent blog posts which I found interesting. That I found them interesting doesn’t mean I necessarily agree with or endorse all of the ideas presented in the posts, but that I found them to be intriguing and thought-provoking. They may benefit you as you prayerfully consider your area of shepherding and stewardship, which has been given to you in trust by the Lord. (They are listed in no particular order of interest.) Please post your comments to discuss  any article that strikes your interest. If you have recent blog posts to nominate, please send the link and your reasons for nominating that post to

Shopping and False Intimacy

This is a very, very interesting article, and one worthy of some reflection. “All of this has me considering church in 21st century America. I fear we may be loosing a valuable sense of intimacy between pastor and member. In a world where pastors tweet and congregations have Facebook accounts, it’s easy to think an intimate relationship exists when all we really have are some dots of data loosely connected by our own assumptions and personal preferences.”

Praying for Your Pastor

You should be praying for your pastor, especially if you value the impact that the weekly worship service has on your family. He could use your praying for him, and so could you.

"There are a number of ways we should be praying for our leaders in the church, but as we approach Sunday I want to encourage you to pray for your pastors and their preaching in 4 specific ways."

Oh, Behave! Conduct Worthy of the Gospel in Corporate Worship

Remember that guy who brought his own tambourine and auto strobe lights? Well, so do I. But before we make fun, perhaps we should read this article. (For the record, no one with their own tambourine and strobes ever visited a worship service at Bridge Baptist Church. That intro line was meant to grab your attention.)

"But even in the occasional instance where someone's worship conduct is seriously out of bounds, what if we started by asking ourselves some hard questions?"

Logic & Religion

Some day, I pray, some day people will realize that there are fundamental rules to proper thinking that impact all religions, except the religion of tolerance -of course.

"As one of my Facebook friends humorously commented, I didn't realize the law of non-contradiction was a controversial Christian doctrine."

A Job That Matters: Taking the Image of God to Work

"I still would have looked forward to a day when I could work at something that used my gifts and passions more effectively. But it would have made all the difference in how I viewed the time I spent there."

The Expulsive Power of a New Affection

Well, Doug Wilson has written a really good post this past week. He usually hits the Doctrine of Regeneration pretty hard, and I appreciate his concern. But I really liked this look at the transformed affections of a regenerated heart!

"Chalmers argued that the human soul must have an object of affection. It is an iron law of our constitutional makeup. We cannot stop setting our affections on something -- and if all we have is the world, it will be something in the world."

Hell: The Lake of Fire

This is absolutely frightening, but such things do exist. God provides these glimpses within creation in order to warn us away from apathy, complacency, or blatant disregard to our creator.

WARNING: Beware of the profanity at the end of the video when there is a sudden blast of lava that comes near the fire walker.
