"Nothing Could Be Further From the Truth" . . . And Other Studpid Statements

Posted on November 1, 2009 at 11:23am 0 Comments

As I have been reading and reviewing books and blogs over the years, my approach has changed. This was not an overnight change, but something that just happened the more involved I became in engaging those who were serious about teaching and learning with intellectual honesty and integrity (something that, I am sad to say, does not often characterize Christian leaders and teachers).

Posted on September 23, 2008 at 2:54pm 21 Comments

The latest Barna survey was published last night. Its intent was to evaluate the Evangelical position concerning the environment. You can find it here.

One paragraph in particular caught my attention:

"Most Christians are not satisfied to be mere observers of the green movement. Three-quarters of self-identified Christians (78%) agree they would like to see their fellow… Continue

This site is great - thanks. It has helped me more clearly express my thoughts, which I know I need help with. And it has helped me in the intro course.

I received an email and also find on My Page that somebody left me a comment on my profile 4 hours ago. But my question is--How do I find this comment? It doesn't appear to be on my comment wall. When I click on "comment" in the notification, it takes me to the forum page. Am I missing something?

Hey Michael!! Did Oklahoma make it into the final four??

I need to get back into the theology courses when time allows...great program. Well, until then I'll have fun reading all the great theological discourse here and add my 2 cents worth:)
Ok, it's back to writing papers on computer ethics for me--only a couple courses left to finish this undergraduate degree.
