Really, I always want to provide thought-provoking analysis on the culture every single day, but unfortunately, that’s not always possible. So I come to you today to remind you of some things, and to bring your attention to some things as well.
You still have time to call in for Square Talk, since we’re spending this week preparing for it, in an effort to give you a quality show with some information you haven’t heard. All you have to do is call 206-888-4STR or 206-888-4787 and leave a comment about the MySpace post. I know some had some questions about it, and others wanted to comment on it. Leave your comments on the number above. We’ve had a call already, and I want to thank you very much for it. We’re excited to air it on Square Talk.
Another thing to check out in the blogoshpere is the new blog, Together For the Gospel. Really, it is the most entertaining blog in the blogoshpere right now. C.J. Mahaney…Albert Mohler…Mark Dever…Ligon Duncan. That equals an incredible blog. What makes it worth reading, is, of course, C.J. Mahaney’s posts. I just wanted to let him know that Seattle will win over Pittsburgh. It’s inevitable. Pittsburgh has been waiting for an upset. But enough for the NFL analysis.
One of the most interesting posts right now is Mark Dever’s “The Unbearable Lightness of Blogs.” I probably could write an entirely different post, but I won’t. I think Pastor Dever states some very interesting and true facts–blogs are not central and absolutely necessary to our Christian growth. Really, I believe reading books is so much greater. But blogs do have their place. Really, the central question “could these small things we write really be that important?” is really a heavy question for all bloggers. Does what I write here on this blog matter? Does it really hold importance?
And the answer really depends on the blog, and how it is written. Personal blogs don’t matter. Blogs about your breakfast, and the party you went to last night don’t matter.
But blogs such as Dr. Mohler’s, or Tim Challies, or Girl Talk, or Reformation 21, or La Shawn Barber, and many, many others that I don’t have time to mention really do matter in the long run. They affect someones life. Really, many of the blogs reach more people than a teacher or professor would every day. Some reach thousands each day. I think that holds a lot of weight. But we must also keep in mind that what we read really makes who we are, and we must pick blogs wisely, making sure that they are full of quality material.
So, as I wrap up, call in to Square Talk, check out the blog, and read books. Lots of books.
