Testing and God

Part of today's reading for the One Year Bible Blog is Genesis 22, which talks about Abraham being asked to sacrifice his only son, Isaac. I suspect that my literalist friends will not like my take on this passage, but here it is anyway. ;)

My translation (NRSV) of v 1-2 reads:

Bugs in BlogWatcher

I've discovered a couple of bug in BlogWatcher, and I wanted to post here about them before they cause any problems for any of my users. All 3 of you. ;)

Andrew Jones and spas

Randy, apparently you need to have a talk with your friend Andrew Jones. He's posted something on his blog about the virtues of a spa as the ideal location for discussions about house churches. Specifically a spa in Austin.

Does God Change?

Today's reading from the OneYearBibleBlog includes the story of the Tower of Babel . In that story, God seems almost to be motivated out of a sense of fear. Earlier, in the Flood story, the motivation seems to be anger.

Genesis and capital punishment

The OneYearBibleBlog reading for January 4th included Genesis 9:6

Whoever sheds the blood of a human, by a human shall that person's blood be shed; for in his own image God made humankind. (NRSV)

A facelift for my blog

Wendy told me that she wanted her own blog site, (her welcome message is here) so I did some checking for her. In the process, I've decided that I wanted to change my own as well. So I've (hopefully) moved all of my old posts and comments to this new system, based on WordPress 2.

Thoughts on "Colossians Remixed"

Well, I've finished reading "Colossians Remixed: Subverting the Empire" by Brian Walsh and Sylvia Keesmaat, and I thought I'd give my thoughts on it. Please understand that this is from the perspective of someone completely untrained in theology.

Article critical of Emergent Church

I found this article by Rev. Ken Silva critical of the writings of Brian McLaren in particular, and emergent church in general. I'm certainly not an expert on Mr. McLaren's writings, but I can definitely say I'm not a fan of Rev. Silva's work.

He takes exception with the phrase

take another look at Jesus' teachings about hell

and responds with

The Producers

We went out to see Mel Brook's movie "The Producers" this evening. I thought I'd write up a quick review

I'm feeling Scottish

As you probably know, my family and I are heading out today to New York, to spend Christmas with Wendy's parents. A consequence of that is that we exchanged our Christmas gifts last night after the Eklektos celebration.

Consider this post fair warning.
