  1. I know it’s Reformation Day and Halloween, but felt the need to comment on K-Love and their fundraiser…aka…”Share-A-Thon”…

    Last time I supported a Christian radio station was a about 10 years ago. Praise FM in the Twin Cities (Minnesota). Not your typical Christian radio station, but actually played more worshipful music. These days I will not think twice about not supporting stations such as K-Love or the Joy FM (here in GA), so long as they employ a business model and continue to play milquetoast music.

  2. “Faith Leaders Fighting White Supremacy, Trump” – article….haven’t been able to finish reading the article while here at work, but was thinking to myself, before I got to where it was mentioned in the article, “where are all the white people at?” (in regards to those protesting white supremacy and Trump).

  3. “Is Hollywood harder on sexual predators than the church is?”

    Obviously not since Hollywood covered it up for decades.

  4. “Obviously not since Hollywood covered it up for decades.”

    And the church hasn’t?

    We’ll have a another example of that later this week…

  5. That was not the question asked by the headline – it asked if Hollywood was harder on sexual predators?
    Although the church may be a wicked institution walking around with it’s collective pants down – Hollywood is no better and does not take care of the issue any better.

    Hence my reply to the question.

  6. As CT previously reported, Christians were banned from living in Nepal prior to 1960. Over the following decades, “Christianity grew by 10 to 20 percent annually, especially among Dalits at the bottom of Hindu society, making Nepal one of Asia’s most stunning church growth stories.”

    Hindu religion and culture are inexorably intertwined. A liberal and liberating religion like Christianity upends thousands of years of cultural inertia, and if of course seen as a threat so the social system. The upper castes are like the Pharisees: “righteous” and not in need of saving.

  7. Reformation Day
    Halloween

    Bah, humbug.

  8. K-love–half the calories, even less taste.

  9. My 5 year old loves K-Love… and throws a fit in the car if I don’t have it on. My 7 year old has been echoing me: “There’s 3 people in the car, sister, and we have a right to listen to what we want to on the radio as well!” She doesn’t like that. I do like a few of the songs on there, but they repeat too many.

  10. form the link to five misconceptions….
    “it leads us to discount the reforming movements that were started by earlier leaders like John Wycliffe (14th c.) and Jan Hus (15th c.). It also leads us to neglect the fact that the Reformation was a widespread grassroots movement that would have likely happened independent of Luther.”
    i don’t think anyone interested in Church history should miss this read, it takes nothing away from Martin Luther, but puts his era and his effort in context…

  11. but Luther did it without getting killed which is as big a key to the Reformation as the printing press 😉

  12. Reformation day ?
    The reformation was already in progress well before Luther. Hus and Wycliffe and a few other lesser known men started the ball rolling .Luther was at the right place at the right time.

  13. There’s a lot not to like about Luther…but his unique place in catalyzing the Reformation can never be diminished.

  14. Thanks for the link to The Rhythm Journal! As of right now, if 112 people back just one paper journal (as opposed to the PDF) it will be funded. 9 days to go and I’m praying! It’s not about making money (because I’m not). It’s about getting a resource in people’s hands to help transform their lives. Thanks again!
