A Few Good Links

After doing a milquetoast mini-series on the state of Christian blogging, it is nice to have my observations validated by excellent blog posts. I now have more ammunition that Christian blogging has value.

I highly recommend the post by Kim over at The Upward Call on Pursuing Purity. Her observations on sanctification are excellent. This aspect of our salvation is misunderstood in much of the church. Gospel-centered teaching on this critical doctrine is far too rare in Evangelical circles, from what I’ve seen. Go read it!

I made the link to Kim’s post from her hubby’s comments (though I’m not at all ashamed to admit I read Homeschool Mom blogs). Neil has been doing a series on Lot that has a rare combination of creativity and faithfulness to the text. I love seeing new insights in familiar texts, as long as they are not merely the insights of the author or preacher imposed on the text. Bugblaster has done his homework very well.

Here’s a three-in-one: Pastor Garry Weaver has a new blog called Amazing Grace and Old Chevys. That title got my attention. There aren’t many people around to talk old Chevys with. He also talks about Amazing Grace topics. Those are good too. Garry also has two sons who blog – Jeremy the Doxoblogist and Pastor Steve. They are both excellent blogs – solid theology, good writing and nice page design to boot! I enjoy reading the comments at Garry’s blog because of the family repartee therein.

Sunday’s comin’. I need to get some sleep.

Terry, the fact that you read the blogs of home school moms just shows that you are indeed an evolved man!

I agree with you about The Upward Call, Pastor Steve Weaver, and Amazing Grace & Old Chevys.

However, you are wrong about Doxoblogist and Bugblaster. Neither of those guys have a clue what they are talking about.

Thanks for the linkage! I also enjoy reading the comments at "Amazing Grace and Old Chevys" for the repartee between the Chevy fans.
