A criterion, a treasure, an assumption, and a broken heart

Again, the starred items in my Google reader are piling up, evidence of the great blogging that has been going on lately. There’s no way that I can write a separate post for each of these, so I’m going to include several in this post.

(Well, I guess I could write a separate post for each one, but I’m not going to.)

Ross at “thejesusvirus” writes “One Criterion
In this post, Ross says that Christians should be making disciples. But, many of the church’s traditional traditions and practices actually hinder making disciples. Do you agree? Why or why not?

Joel from “The Double Edged Sword” writes “Treasures Worth Finding, Part 1
He tells the story of meeting David, a homeless man. David shares his story with Travis. Would you consider this a treasure?

Eric from “A Pilgrim’s Progress” writes “A Key Assumption
What is that assumption? The assumption is that Scriptures should form our understanding of the church, including what we do when we gather together. What do you think? Is this a valid assumption?

Arthur from “The Voice of One Crying Out In Suburbia” writes “A broken heart trumps a church bulletin
Arthur writes about meeting with the church recently. At this gathering, a lady was in need of prayer and support. The church stopped everything to tend to this sister. Would you be disappointed with a gathering like this?

    Alan,

    Ross is correct,”Christians should be making disciples”. Absolutely, but only genuine disciples WILL make disciples!

    Joel is very privileged. Let brotherly love continue.Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares, Heb.13:1-2

    Eric’s assumption is vital as well as valid.

    Arthur has nailed it in one.
