Hi Fun Seekers,
A very good fun Friday to you, a very good fun Friday indeed.
Four years ago when I started this blog, I did something that’s never been done on the blogosphere before or since.
It’s called the $25,000 give-away.
Since this blog was just ranked in the top 10 out of all Christian blogs on the Web, we’re going to celebrate by relaunching that historic post.
So here it is again . . . read the original post below and be sure to click the link at the bottom for the instructions.
Hi Fun Seekers,
Today is another edition of fun Friday. And we are going to resurrect a previous innovation. It’s an exercise I created back in 2009 called The One Word Monologue.
Yes, girls and boys, today’s edition of Beyond Evangelical will feature our third . . . count them, 3rd . . . one word monologue.
Here’s how it works.
Hello Fun Seekers. Welcome to “Fun Friday.”
Before we get down to bid’ness today, I want to encourage you with two things.
First: I write these blog posts very fast. So they sometimes contain typos. I can’t catch them all. So if you ever spot a typo — for a present post or a previous one — please let me know in the comments section. I would greatly appreciate it. You are my proof readers.
(Firefox is a much better browser. If you don’t have it, I recommend it. It’s a free download.)
I’m not a fan of toolbars on my browser, but I’m diggin’ the Alexa toolbar. It’s notified me of several helpful articles I would have never seen otherwise.
The toolbar has a lot of nifty buttons, and if you’re a blogger, it will help your blog – and all other blogs that you visit – in the Alexa rankings.
The toolbar is a free download. Just click here to download it. Install and you’re set.
Now on to the subject at hand . . .
Many, many moons ago in a galaxy far, far away I used to teach high school. And at the end of each school year, when the yearbooks rolled out, I would write on my blackboard a list of “what not to write in someone’s yearbook.”
It was an annual tradition. Some of the other teachers liked it so much they began stealing it, posting it on their blackboards. So I was forced to copyright the material. Continue Reading…
To lighten things up a bit on the blog this week, here’s a short story that a friend sent me.
A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in California, when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him.
The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out his window and asked the cowboy . . .
“If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?”
Bud looked at the man, obviously a yuppie, and then looked at his peacefully grazing herd. He calmly answered, “Sure, why not?”
The yuppie parks his car, whipped out his Dell notebook computer, connected it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfed to a NASA page on the Internet. He then called up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he immediately fed to another NASA satellite that scanned the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo. Continue Reading…

Coming Soon: Exclusive Interview with N.T. Wright.
Last night, I watched The Nativity Story (DVD). I love that movie. It’s very well done, the acting is great, and it stays fairly close to the text.
I also appreciate how they depict Joseph. You can’t help but love the guy. (I paid tribute to Joseph yesterday.)
As with movies of this sort, I lost half my body weight weeping through it. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should.
Now on to Christmas songs. Continue Reading…
Shortly after Pagan Christianity released in 2008, a friend of mine created a video response to the many straw-man/misleading reviews that were circulating about the book.
Jesus taught us to agree with our adversaries (Matt 5:25). So the video is quite Scriptural.
I still find it interesting that some people continue to write misleading critiques of the book, yet refuse to come on this blog to discuss/debate the issues with me . . . despite my continued invitations for such. Continue Reading…
Hi Fun Seekers, thanks for all the kind words about the song I posted yesterday. So glad so many were blessed by it.
Here’s a pithy quote I came across recently that I enjoyed. It makes a powerful point, I think:
“I mail, I text, I tweet, I blog, I built a Facebook for my dog, I speak no words, I shake no hands, I am at last a modern man.”
