New mile marker for this blog

This is a small blog, but I am thankful for the readers of this blog as I work through some theology (and some humor) online.  Hey, thanks!  While it has been a slow road, Pisteuo has finally passed a significant milestone, and critics are responding:

Been There, Preached That: Today's conservatives sound like yesterday's liberals.

Preacher-man, read this article (PDF).  Repent in sackcloth and ashes; it took a liberal to point it out.

Refutation of "Zeitgeist"

Its bizarre claims about Christianity, anyway. From Apologetics 315:

If you have heard of or watched the online conspiracy-theory movieZeitgeist, then this audio file may be helpful in dissecting just how deceptive and incorrect it is. In this audio file,Glenn Peoplesunpacks and refutes many of the movie's false claims and errors. A good audio file to point people to who may have questions. This audio is from Glenn's"Say Hello to My Little Friend"podcast,found here. Bloghere.

For your MLKJr Day reflection

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is still racism-free, 32 years and running!  Kudos.

Just be careful, though: any new revelation might change everything.

Abortion Stats Infograph

Dan Philips discovered a helpful graphic that is rather graphic in the picture it paints.  Well, I mean in its telling statistics... it is safe for public viewing (as safe as the topic may be where you are).

This year... look up!

And did I mention it is free?  It's worth buying, if you have the funds and dislike watching things in-length on the computer.

Running about an hour and a half in total, these YouTube videos are divided into single-chapter segments.  Of course, that will help you should you want to focus on individual texts.  However, if you have the time, also consider attempting the whole book in one sitting.  The book was written to be read aloud in its entirety, so this will help you gain a good bird&#…
