'Surprising' results from a Harvard economic study
Research at the Harvard Business School has been looking at the correlation between government spending (earmark income drawn to states with important congressmen/women and stimulus spending) and private sector business success and growth. Now, the results of this research is crucial in developing our game plan to repair our country’s economy. If increased government spending and earmark...
The Literary or Living Bible? →
Dr. Albert Mohler provides an in-depth look at the clash between a literary view of the Bible as ancient Near Eastern literature and as the inspired revelation of God. Refreshingly, there is no bashing of the literary view of the Bible, but Mohler speaks with conviction about the absolute result if we simply view the Bible from a secular post-modern angle. Jesus is lost. What he did for us and...
Should Public Colleges Teach Religion? →
… Talking about religion in a diverse group means that you will run into people who misunderstand your views, and might insult them, intentionally or accidentally. Of course, this is part of living in a democracy, but religion is especially touchy because it is something we feel so personally, and identify with so strongly. On the other hand, where better than college to interact with...
Cheesiness Is a Sin →
Authentic movies, ones that portray the honest complexities of life, challenge us, move us, and inspire reflection—but authenticity is hard to come by in Christian films. Christian movies rarely depict genuinecharacters living in the real world. The Christian film industry’s offerings are easy to dismiss, not necessarily for their message, but for their artlessness—their predictable plots,...
The Christian Brand →
An interesting article discussing the Christian brand in society. Our Christian nation ascribes to the brand name “Christian,” but has trouble/does not want/does not truly believe in what the brand name stands for and the content behind it. I’ve noticed something like this in country music. Country music generally depicts the Southern way of life and as a whole, the South is...

This is Your Brain on the Internet →
An interesting blogpost about the negative effects that internet browsing can have on the brain. Unimportant split-second decisions and information binging apparently can decrease our brains’ ability for deep thinking and concentration. Interesting.
Tweet of the Week: Roger Ebert Compares American... →
Absolutely ridiculous. I understand the tender issue of immigration and what strain it has put on Mexican-Americans, but really, they should not be offended from the wearing of an American flag on Cinco de Mayo. Unless the American flag wearing teens were bullying and ganging up on the Mexican-Americans, then they would have the right to complain. They should enjoy the richness of their heritage...
"Fishers of Men" Carry their Cross →
For the complete article follow the link. … A “fisher of men” is not guaranteed an easy or a pain-free life. A “fisher of men” keeps fishing for men because he never forgets the desperate need of men for a Savior. A “fisher of men” is always grateful and remembers that he is forgiven only because another “fisher of men” did whatever it took to tell him about Jesus. Never forget that...
What do Christians believe about dreams? →
… Dreams don’t seem to mean as much as they used to for Christians. They were a far more common element of religious life in the Bible. Whether prophets or apostles, followers of God often received communications from Him while they were sleeping. Indeed, our most treasured passages – Daniel, the virgin birth, Revelation – involve dreams and visions. We don’t really talk about that...
