      Wow, Todd, this is an impressive listing! I’m way-honored to be among them. The work you are doing is fantastic. Keep it up and stay strong!

      Some thoughts:

      —“Five ways to know if you’re really a Christian”—Awesome post.  Gotta love the straightforward stuff.

      —“Check out the “Jesus Loves Strippers” ministry” —From the article:

      “The volunteers don�t bring Bibles. They don�t launch into talk about God.  [...]  Only God can change a person,� said Emily Mills, a 32-year-old mother of three. �Our goal is not to go in and change them, but make them realize that God loves them no matter what they do and where they are.�”

      There’s the problem.  Where’s the Gospel?  What about the souls and eternal destination of these women?  Good works without the message of Christ makes this group no different than any other public outreach.

      —“Rick Warren is expected to make a full recovery”—I am glad to hear that the blindness wasn’t permanent.

      thanks, Todd.

      CS, I agree on that great “5 ways” article… but… a question… did you come LOOKING to find fault somewhere or did you just happen upon it? Don’t answer right away, just think about it…

      Also, the Vuvuzela Brahms music was just stunning, Todd!

      “CS, I agree on that great “5 ways” article… but… a question… did you come LOOKING to find fault somewhere or did you just happen upon it? Don’t answer right away, just think about it…”

      I think it would be fair to say, “With nearly 40 articles in the list above, based on past history, I expected that at some point I would come across something that would have some fault.”

      this is the best stuff on the web???  disagree on the “five ways to know”...I like sin, and its christians I can’t stand to be around.  Guess I am not one of them, funny too how I thought salvation was by grace???
