Since it’s customary for bloggers to post a “top-ten” list at the end of the year, I thought I’d do the same. I didn’t do one last year, because I’d only been blogging since the previous July, and it seemed silly to do a top-ten list for less than 6 months’ worth of material. But so as not to leave those 6 months unaccounted for, I’m going to include them in this year’s inventory.
So here’s my all-time top-ten list, for what it’s worth.
10. On Calling God by His First Name. One of my personal favorites.
9. One Tiny Reason Why I’m Not a Secular Humanist. Confession time.
8. Those Spiritual Gifts Tests? Maybe You Ought to Ignore Them. Don’t put words in God’s mouth.
7. On Sexual Assault, Due Process, and Supreme Court Nominations. Wading into the fray.
6. What Jury Duty Taught Me about Comment Threads. My first post.
5. Freak Out Thou Not. This Means You. A common theme; worth a hashtag, I guess.
4. I Was Born That Way. Bringing biblical theology to bear on a controversy.
3. Pants on Fire. What ever happened to telling the truth?
2. Are We Doing Church Wrong? A biblical teaching that reoriented my life many years ago.
And number 1 …
1. The Great Sin of the Evangelical Right. Sacrificing the permanent on the altar of the immediate.
I’ve noticed a trend that doesn’t surprise me and won’t surprise you either. Rants get clicks.
I’m not going to pander to that.
