I blog religion and theology on this site, The Master’s Table. My Other Blog is filled with YouTube clips, funny pictures and random entries on life, sports, television shows I’m watching and the weather. (Everybody blogs about the weather…)
I occasionally join Mike F. and Joe Derbes in a group project titled Life in Mordor. My latest contribution is The Gospel According to Allegory. Check out some Mike and Joe stuff while you’re there; comments and link love would be greatly appreciated.
I’ve written before on Christians fighting the culture war. It is certainly going on, but to what degree are we expected to change this culture we live in versus walk circumspectly of it? Paul was certainly aware of what went on in the public bath houses as he planted churches across Greece, but we don’t find him standing outside those bath houses carrying signs in the first century. He went on planting churches and training pastors, and as far was we know never once made a sandwich board about God hating fags. (Google Fred Phelps if that doesn’t make sense).
Many Christians, evangelicals in particular, have done a questionable job dealing with cultural issues like homosexuality. Can a homosexual also be a Christian? Please don’t answer that question, at least not here. Check out the conversation going on over at Life in Mordor. The Fellowship has grown to three, and as far as I know the door has not been closed. Joe Derbes wasted no time, and jumped right in with both feet on this issue.
one does not simply blog into mordor
Life in Mordor, the Christian blog of Mike Frizzell, has been on my blogroll for a long time. He left WordPress for a while, went on hiatus, and has now come back home. Changing hosts (a couple of times) can have a negative impact on a blog, and Mike is in the process of working the kinks out.
Mike was looking for help, and I jumped at the chance. The offer still stands if anyone is interested in contributing. It could involve posting once, occasionally, or daily. Check out this page for more info. You could join The Fellowship (my wife asked if that makes me a troll). The archive page contains all of his posts listed by category, and also archived by month. That’s one of those features that gets lost in transition. The biggest need right now is for a little attention. Life in Mordor is a work in progress, but it’s progressing nicely.
