New "Creation Museum"

The people at Ars Technica recently took a trip to the newly opened Creation Museum in Kentucky (including pictures

Bible in a year

Last year, I successfully completed my second pass at reading through the entire Bible in a year, this time following along with an on-line discussion at One Year Bible Blog (ATOM). This year, I've started again, but I'm following a different plan.

Jesus in support of gay marriage?

Zeus has wriiten an excellent, well thought out post on homosexuality, Christianity, and the Bible. It's not anything in particular that I haven't seen before, but it's so well written that I had to give it a bump.

I especially liked the comment:

Christians, sinners and sin

Random thoughts on today's readings

My thoughts from today's Bible readings on Jacob wrestling, Jesus' yoke, and the debate between creationism and evolution.

While I don't know that I agree that this is all that "new" of an approach, it does help to articulate some of the issues with the way that the Bible is (mis)handled today. Unfortunately, coming at the Bible the way the author recommends involves a lot more work that just "cherry-picking" verses to support a position.
