It is my pleasure to introduce you to some great bloggers:
- Jared at Exultate Justi is a fellow Christian who offers a lucid analysis of current political events with a strong strategic twist.
- Armando at Hobson’s Choice offers good and insightful conservative commentary, news and fiction. His treatment of the questio disputata, Should Conservatives Support the Federal Marriage Amendment is excellent and thoroughly recommended for reflection.
- Catez at Allthings2All: Turning the world upside down is a fellow Christian from New Zealand who not only is involved in ministries of mercy, but also is a very able thinker. His post Illumination and Instability in the Soul is a great examination of some key issues of the theology of revelation and their anthropological impact, using Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses as an example. Choice quote: “Projecting our own ambition onto God is a poor replacement for seeing ourselves reflected in his illumination. A truly illumined soul becomes a stable soul… Whose voice are you listening to, and how do you know?”.
The next fellow bloggers are special. They not only are fellow Christians; they are also users of GNU/Linux. This rejoices me so much! I thought once that using Linux and being a Christian was a difficult combination. Well, it might be a difficult combination, but at least it is a combo attempted by more people than I thought. I give my heartfelt welcome to:
- James at Knowtown, dreaming an ecclesial dream and using SUSE Linux.
- Joe Missionary, writing from somewhere in Asia doing God’s mission with a theologian’s mind. This Fedora Core 2 user recently treated us with a great post on the eternal question of the salvific power of general revelation in Saved Without Jesus?.
- Vaughn at The Fishbowl: A view of the world from inside the glass is a SUSE Linux user. He has a very good post on The Fall of the American Empire. He is more at the left of the political spectrum than your humble blogger here, but his contributions are usally worthwile and well-argued.
So, pay these fine people a visit, and enjoy!
