Welcome to the CLXXVIII edition of the Christian Carnival. Whoa, CLXXVIII. That’s a lot of Roman letters just to say it’s the 278th edition.

I could call this the “Day After Trying to Recover From What Might Have Been a Minor Flu Edition,” but I won’t. Christmas Season and Flu Season accompany each other every year, like Hansel and Gretel, or Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum. I had just enough aches and pains to baby myself to prevent a flu… heck, enough of the excuses. Instead of posting the Christian Carnival last night, I took some Nyquil and went to bed at 8pm.
Feeling good today, and ready to roll. And whoa, there are a lot of submissions this week. Here’s the 254th Christian Carnival in reverse submittal order-
Henry Neufeld presents Stories in a Chronological Context posted at Participatory Bible Study Blog. Sometimes we behave as though the Bible consists of nothing but God’s interventions. Perhaps we ought to consider the time that passes between our favorite stories as well.
Tiffany Partin presents Five Bucks and a Piece of Tin Foil posted at Fathom Deep: Sounding the Depths of God. A simple gift, 2 opposite reactions. This is the season to offer help to those who really need it.
A. Lee presents Edvard Munch : the Man behind the Scream ~ Biography posted at e Art Fair .com. What does Munch have to do with Christianity, you might ask. Everything, I’d like to answer. Munch comes from a strictly religious upbringing and this influence has permeated his art.
In a post entitled God’s arrival in Jerusalem, Weekend Fisher traces an Old Testament prophecy of God’s arrival in Jerusalem back to when God’s arrival was first announced: “Prepare the way of the LORD”. These are among the words which Mark uses to open his gospel. WF considers the possibility that Mark considered Jesus to be the LORD spoken of in the prophecy. Read the article at Heart, Mind, Soul, and Strength.
Vickie Sloderbeck presents Some Thoughts on Why I Homeschool My Children posted at Sidetracked Moms. Good thoughts on the benefits of homeschooling. Yeah, I know it’s a second entry from this blog, but if I can post the carnival a day late, then Vickie can have 2 posts.
Drew Tatusko presents the great emergence from abundance posted at Notes From Off Center. God’s grace is a gift that extends beyond any contingencies in which the cause and effect of life finds all people. This includes death itself. Because God’s grace is not contingent on what happens in the world in which we live, God must deserve thanks at every point in time and history. A more fitting alternative is to say either that God simply must not exist, or at least the God who gives the gift of grace to all, for all, and forever must not be real.
Allen Scott presents Living in the Land of Denial posted at Journey Across the Sky. Many people live their lives in a state of denial. An altered state of reality you could say. A place where, in their opinion, everything is as it should be, but those around them hold to a different viewpoint.
Stephen Miracle presents Christmas Charity: Giving This Holiday Season posted at Inspirational Articles @ AltNoise.net. It might be harder to give this Christmas season, but it gives us the perfect opportunity to help those in need. It will no longer be automated action, but something actually coming from your heart.
The 253rd edition from last week, the Advent (Conspiracy) Edition CCLIII, can be found at “Parables of a Prodigal World.”

It’s National Bailout Day, seeing as how our illustrious US Congress has allocated $700 billion for Wall Street bankers. As Christians, I think we probably could put $700 billion to better use, don’t you?
But I got to thinking that our lives are not ours, we have been purchased at a cost. How much did it cost for Jesus to bail us out? In that view, $700 is mere paper. The Son of God sacrificed Himself.
Chasing the Wind is please tonight to host the 244th Christian Carnival, this week’s collection of the best Christian writing found on the planet. (Hey, if you find better, at least you’re looking. Halleluiah. :) )
In order they were received, here they are –
- Minister Mamie L. Pack presents Called to pray posted at The Life I Now Live. Instead of just watching somebody fail – why not pray for them?
- FMF presents Is It Ok for a Church to Accept Credit Card Donations? posted at Free Money Finance. Are credit cards themselves either good or bad?
- Renae presents Feeding my Pride posted at Life Nurturing Education. Sometimes it’s hard to recognize the tangled weight of expectations.

- Daniel Partin presents Defending The Shack: Black Madonna posted at Prophet For Hire: A blog for those seeking relationship with God. Daniel defends The Shack from charges of promoting goddess worship.

The beginning of the Financial Crises for Dummies series, which will examine the basics of what makes our economy work, and how we got into our current financial crisis, leaving out all the Wall Street mumbo-jumbo and buzz words. While this post is strictly about the economy, future posts will be looking into biblical views on money and finances.
- From Weekend Fisher, Did Jesus testify to his identity? posted at Heart, Mind, Soul, and Strength. Have you ever talked to a Muslim who challenged, “Where did Jesus say, ‘I am God’?” or a non-Christian who challenged, “Where did Jesus claim to be the Christ?” Weekend Fisher reviews what Jesus said about what testimony on our own behalf is worth — and what witnesses he called on his behalf.
- Diane R presents What is Masculinity Anyway? posted at Crossroads: Where Faith and Inquiry Meet. A lot has been written about the lack of masculinity in our church men. But is the new men’s movement going too far? And is it really true, especially of the younger men?

- Annette presents All is in Subjection to him posted at Fish and Cans, a study of Hebrews 2.
- ChrisB presents Half a Blue Parakeet posted at Homeward Bound. An unfortunately negative review of Scot McKnight‘s new book The Blue Parakeet .

This week, Chasing the Wind is honored to host the 228th edition of the Christian Carnival, a collection of this week’s best Christian blogging. This week is Father’s Day – so let us remember this week that it is our Father in heaven that gives us Life in Him!
Would you like to participate in a future edition of the Christian Carnival, either as a host or as a writer? Jeremy has provided up to date instructions on how to do that at his website, Parableman.
First on our list is a promotion for a new Christian social network called His-Friends:
Christopher Johnson presents Smart Personal Finances » Blog Archive » His-Friends posted at Smart Personal Finances. I need your help to build a Christian community where everyone can come to make friends, keep in contact with friends and family, and give and receive support and encouragement.
What does the bible say about money? Quite a bit, actually:
The bible also has quite a bit on the subject, of sex, too:
Cheapham presents Paul and Sex(uality) “According to Nature” posted at Theology for the Masses. The post deals with Roman sexuality and Paul in Romans 1. However, there is some good discussion brewing the comments on how to do biblical scholarship.
At the same website, a different author offers a prayer for the community:
JR Madill presents A Prayer I Prayed posted at Theology for the Masses. JR was asked to pray a prayer for “the least of these” Parkade Baptist Church “Battle for America” Concert of Prayer Monday night, June 2nd.
Diane looks at some positive benefits of legalism:
Diane R presents The Old Time Religion (Legalism)…Maybe Not So Bad After All? posted at Crossroads: Where Faith and Inquiry Meet. Maybe the old time fundamentalist legalists weren’t that stupid after all.
John asks what it’s like to be accepted by God:
Does observing the liturgical calendary help or hinder the Christian Church?
Mark Olson presents Toward or Away From The Secular posted at Pseudo-Polymath. Liturgical calendar, Nativity, Epiphany, Lent, Easter/Pascha, Pentecost, and so on. Many Protestant churches have abandoned the liturgical calendar. Why? In asking, I present argument why not.
A thoughtful post on the theology of St. Luke is here; I look forward to the next installment:
What is the bright side of the high price of oil? Find out here:
Thom presents High Priced Oil, a Struggling Economy, and Spirituality Part 1 posted at Everyday Liturgy. Thom begins a discussion on the spiritual consequences of living in the present economy.
Where is God when you need Him most? God is here:
God is our Father, not just on Father’s Day, but everyday. Why not our Mother?
And finally, broaching the subject of Christian erotica. Can erotica and/or porn also be Christian?

Chasing the Wind is honored to host the 219th edition of the Christian Carnival II, the blogosphere’s best Christian writing. My comments on the post in italics after each entry, but I left the author’s original thoughts when he or she provided them. I included almost all posts I received; I excluded two from the same blog that were more about “the power of positive thinking” that didn’t seem to mention Christianity, and a similar post about raising children from a site mostly dedicated to gardening. Oh, and I excluded an advertisement blog for Branson Missouri. If I excluded your post and you don’t agree, email me and let me know why I erred and I’ll correct it.
- Lawrence of Arabia presents wright speaks the truth; obama apologizes for it posted at revolt in the desert.
Sort of a “devil’s advocate” look at the inflammatory Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s speech and America. I understand the point he’s making, but the premise is a bit hard to embrace.
- Elementaryhistoryteacher presents Free Willing posted at Got Bible?, responding to a reader’s comment that religion is “life-hating and degrading.”
Of course it’s not; God created us, and He loves life!
- Henry Imler presents Relinquishment of Dominance as a Requirement for Citizenship in the Kingdom of God posted at Theology for the Masses.
What does it mean to be “like a child?”
- Paul Manata presents “Paradox In Christian Theology” Reviewed posted at Triablogue. A thorough book (p)review of James Anderson’s “Paradox in Christian Theology: An Analysis of Its Presence, Character, and Epistemic Status.” Anderson argues that there are indeed some Christian doctrines that are paradoxical. But, these may be rationally believed, and warranted for the Christian. Anderson offers a model, based largely off Plantinga’s model of warrant, whereby this claim is substantiated.
- Greg Qualls presents Murphy v. God – God Wins!!! posted at GregQualls.com. Giving glory to God for all things good.
(Psst – God had an advantage, I think. )
- George Marcelo presents The Roman Catholic Church is Satanic! posted at George A. Marcelo’s Weblog.
Er, I struggled with this one. While I understand George’s warnings, I also understand Paul’s warning we should not be devisive over doctrine. If your Catholic, you’ll probably be offended, but I think the author is trying to make sure you understand what “accepting Jesus” means.
- FMF presents Seven Deadly Signs of Financial Bondage posted at Free Money Finance. Signs of financial bondage from the Bible.
This isn’t a Christian website, but the post is from a pastor that provides scripture to meditate on when thinking about financial issues.
- David Gushee presents What Dr. King means to me posted at CounterCulture. Reflections about the life and work of one of the Christian leaders whose work has had the deepest impact on my own moral vision, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Wow, talk about a life-changing event!
- Tina Petersel presents The Cost of Repentence posted at Maiden Song. A salute to Paul Weyrich’s brave stand in repenting for choosing politics over principle this election season.
“Repentence” is a word too easily tossed around. What does it mean, really?
- Diane R presents Single Christians and the Church posted at Crossroads: Where Faith and Inquiry Meet. Single Christians are not always treated with respect in most churches. Why is this, and how should they be treated?
Interesting topic, especially contrasted with “Are you happy or holy? posted below.
- Allen Scott presents Sneak Peeks: Glimpses of upcoming events posted at Journey Across the Sky.
Ah, the power of advertising. Advertise salvation!
- Jessica Jones presents The Intentional Family posted at Practical Nourishment.
Good practical advise for raising your children, though mostly secular in nature.
- This week at Light Along the Journey, John reflects on what he would have told himself if he could have jumped into a plutonium-powered Delorean and visited himself in the past with his post Seven Things I Wish I Knew at Seventeen.
It’s not too late to know it now (and put it into practice)!
- Gavin R. Putland presents Still on the mountaintop: Economically rational racism posted at /etc/cron.whenever/. Marking the 40th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “mountaintop” speech.
- Tasia Eraseren presents A Christian Walk posted at A Closer Walk With JESUS. Jesus is The Good News. Addressing God, the Bible, Religion, and the Christian Community.
- This week at Life is Worth Living, Paul reflects on the book of promises, the bible, in Book of Promises.
- Andrew Tatusko presents The Church as Sacrament: Religion and Wealth Inequality Part II posted at Notes From Off Center. The church is that physical entity which is not only a symbol of the saving power of Christ, but is the very means by which God continues to enact and perform acts of grace and love in the world. First God was incarnate in Christ. Now God is incarnate in the church.
- Angela Williams Duea presents Christians are brainwashed. posted at angelawd. The suggestion that as a believer, I was brainwashed in my faith, made me look closer at the reasons I embrace Christianity.

- Richard H. Anderson presents Blame it on Eli posted at dokeo kago grapho soi kratistos Theophilos.
- ChrisB presents Sin, Death, and Evolution posted at Homeward Bound. A discussion of death as a consequence of sin and its implications for evolution.

- Tom Gilson presents Knowing the True God posted at Thinking Christian. A response to New Age-related questions about God.
- Henry Neufeld presents Relating the Incarnation to Inspiration posted at Participatory Bible Study Blog. What points about the incarnation are applicable to an incarnational view of inspiration.
- Jody Neufeld presents Forgiveness: Not a Neat Package posted at Jody Along the Path. Forgiveness is necessary, but it isn’t always as neat and idy as we might like it to be.
- Mark Olson presents One Man. A Journey. A Return. posted at Pseudo-Polymath. I don’t exactly know what to call what I’ve written. But I’ve written it just the same. What do y’all think?
- The Bible Archive’s Rey offers a (very rough) history of the New Testament canon.
- In Infinite harm posted at Parableman, Wink examines some arguments for why we should think of our sin against God as an infinite crime deserving of an infinite punishment as part of a series on annihilationism and hell.

Welcome to the 208th edition of the Christian Carnival, a weekly amalgomation of this week’s best Christian writing. Chasing the Wind is humbled to host such a fine collection of postings this week; I suggest picking a few titles below and clicking them; you won’t find a finer collection of Christian thoughts anywhere on the web.
Tia presents Seeking Contentment in a Broken World: Exploring Traumatic Countertransference posted at On Journeying with Those in Exile, saying, “Dan asks some questions about what to do with the pain he feels for the Broken world and how it relates to imitatio Christi in having cruciform love.”
ChristianPF presents Financial lessons from Solomon posted at Money in the Bible | Christian Personal Finance Blog, saying, “The Bible says that Solomon was the richest man who ever lived and also the wisest ever to live. I think that makes him qualified to give some financial advice.”
Diane R. presents We Are Too!….So There! posted at Crossroads: Where Faith and Inquiry Meet, saying, “Many younger Christian leaders today are criticising the evangelical church for it’s recent history of neglecting the poor. But what do you think we’ve been doing for the past 100 years?”
Mark Olson presents Ecumenism, Creed, Conflict, and Dr King posted at Pseudo-Polymath, saying, “Small “c” catholic is a term we profess in the Creed, many of us every Sunday. What’s that have to do with Dr King’s message and ekklesia? Well, I think they are connected and offer a short essay on why.”
Jeremy Pierce presents Jesus’ Impeccability and Language Acquisition posted at Parableman, saying, “A reflection on how Jesus must have learned language and what it means for questions about whether Jesus made any mistakes.”
JR Madill presents Creating a Universe of Certainty, or, If You Remove Reason, You Remove Doubt (Part 2 of 2) posted at Theology for the Masses.
