No, I Won’t Pray for You. There is a lot of very good wisdom in this article. “It’s the easiest thing in the world to say: “Yes, I’ll pray about that.” And it’s the easiest thing to neglect. The list of all the things I’ve said I’d pray for but then forgotten about would stretch from here to next year. So I’ve started to say, “No, I won’t pray for you.” I am still not entirely comfortable with it, but I think it’s the right thing to do.”

Why It’s Ok for Christians to Worship Idols. As is cleary stated at the beginning of the piece, this is satire. The author does an excellent job using Christian pro-homosexuality argumentation to argue for the legitimacy of idolatry. “For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to worship idols. It’s not that my parents raised me that way, because they didn’t; I was brought up in a loving, secure, Christian home. But from childhood until today, my heart has been drawn to idolatry. In fact, if I’m honest, one of the defining features of my identity has been my desire to put something else – popularity, money, influence, sex, success – in place of God.”

Interstellar Movie Review. A Christian offer his thoughts about the blockbuster.

Five Points for Parents Who Want to Pass on Their Faith to Their Children. “Five things families should know, do, or remember if they want to pass on their faith to the next generation.”

Archery Amazement. The fellas from Dudeperfect, a group known for their insane basketball shots, picks up some bows and amaze us all. Is there anything these guys aren’t good at?
