'Pop Goes the Gospel'

'Pop Goes the Gospel'

Welcome to the September 2009 edition of “Pop Goes the Gospel“. This back to school issue is chuck full of thought provoking material. There is lots here even for the casual student to digest. There are many posts to cause you to pause and consider, as well as some which might make you cry. We have all the emotions covered this month so enjoy.

Feature Post

Trent Cotton presents Hello-I Am a Slave posted at Christian Men-Christian Warriors. How’s that look on a resume you might ask. Well Trent Cotton hits a home run with this post on Romans 1:1. Well done Trent Cotton and you are this months feature author.

In Faith

Savannah Garcia presents savannah garcia: Looking back… posted at savannah garcia.Savannah writes a poignant post looking back on her husbands bout with cancer. This one is a must read and be sure the Kleenex box is not far from your computer as you read this moving post. Well done and welcome to Pop Goes the Gospel blog carnival

Bible SEO presents Christian Disciple – Seven Conditions | Bible Study Lessons | Bible Studies | Inductive Bible Study Guide posted at Bible Study Exposition Online. A check list for Christian Disciples. How do you measure up to this list of must haves to be considered a disciple of Christ?

Rodney Sutton presents Look Ma….No Land!!! posted at Happy Hog Speaks!. Rodney another new comer to Pop Goes the Gospel offers a short post full of wit and yes even some wisdom. Sometimes the best posts are the shortest, and I think Rodney gets the prize this month for the shortest post in this month’s issue. Can you walk on water? Find out by reading this post.

Allen Scott presents Left Behind posted at Journey Across the Sky. My own submission to this carnival warns us to take heed of the warning signals so that we are not left unprepared or worst yet left behind.

In Church Life

Big Larry presents Getting Creative With Tithing posted at Out of Debt Christian, saying, “Maintaining your commitment to tithe can be challenging during these tough times. But a little creativity will help remind you that abundance is always there for those who give of themselves first!” Well put Larry and well done. Larry is a first time contributor to this blog carnival and I hope that he will continue to bless us in the future with additional submissions.

andriel presents The Basis for Salvation: Man is Sinful posted at ReturningKing.com, Trends in neo-Christianity present salvation as something inherently man-inspired; frequently admonishing only that man properly involve himself in God’s work and lift himself up by his bootstraps to meet God’s expectations. But as andriel presents in “The Basis for Salvation” man is sinful and in need of a Savior. This is a great read but you better get your bible out before you start to digest this post.

Yvette Nietzen presents The Lord has Covered your Sin posted at Fresh Wind Ministries. Yvette follows andriel with a shower of blessings found in repentance and forgiveness from God. God wants to restore us into fellowship with Him but our sinful nature wants to alienate us from Him. Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. Let the Lord shower you with His forgiveness and start each day refreshed and renewed.

Adam Faughn presents I Love Church Vans! posted at The Faughn Family of Four. Adam really loves church vans. Really he does, and so will you once you understand what they stand for. Perhaps you would like to add your church van to Adam’s collection?

Jeremy Hobbs presents Matthew 18:7-9 posted at ChristsDomain, Jeremy Hobbs dissects Matthew 18:7-9 and poses to us all a challenge to examine what causes us to stumble in the faith and ANNIHILATE it!

Shannon Christman presents The Minority Thinker: Is Jesus Really the Answer? posted at The Minority Thinker, Shannon Christman a first time contributor to this blog carnival asks us to think before we answer. Jesus is definitely the answer for the world today but is Jesus the right answer to every question?

In Culture

NCSue presents “I was in prison, and you came to visit me.” – Mt. 25:36 – * posted at IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING. A thought provoking post admonishing the church to do a better job of visiting those who are in prison.

Randy Powell presents Can God Hear Me? posted at Communicating with God Effectively. I guess the answer to that question would depend on how you actually viewed God. This is what Randy wants us to look at with his post. I say talk to God as if you were talking to your best friend, after all HE is closer than a brother, and loves to be called Abba Father or daddy.

Angelawd presents “What if you’re wrong about atheism?” posted at angelawd, Or what if God actually exists? Does belief in an unseen God prove worthwhile in the life of those who believe? What if that belief turns out to be false, would the life that you led be a waste? Read the article but then take the time to read ALL the comments. This is a thought provoking piece, but for me, like doubting Thomas I wanted proof that Jesus was alive and loved me, and for me I received all the proof I need. I am convinced that God is real and my faith in Him is not wasted. What say you? Leave your comment along with the others. This is a must read.

In Politics

Dan Smith presents The Abortion Debate posted at Different Frequencies…Same Radio, Dan rages a debate with himself that he shares with the world over the abortion debate. How should a Christian respond to this issue? See what Dan decided in “The Abortion Debate” blog post.

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of pop goes the gospel using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
