OD Today: 24 December 2008

December 24, 2008

I think the biggest new contribution from the ODMs overnight was a Sandy Simpson article that appeared at Tim Wirth‘s weblog and at his Nazarene-focused Psalm 11:3 weblog. It has not yet appeared in Sandy’s article list at Deception In The Church. It’s about Allelon, and it starts with a family tree of the Emerging Church movement as seen from the ODM point of view. Unfortunately the link at the Allelon site it references repeatedly has gone stale. I’d be grateful for an update.

  • Steve Camp on Obama/Warren with video from a Rick Warren appearance on MSNBC, “If ‘Pastor’ Warren was being faithful as a man of God preaching an uncompromised gospel, then those various political and religious groups wouldn’t be applauding him, they’d want to stone him.”
  • Ken Silva picks up the Margaret Manning/RZIM/Henri Nouwen letter; he has the text on his weblog, but doesn’t cite Ingrid Schlueter as being the source; perhaps he got the same letter from Manning. Reformata.org reposts without comment here.
  • John Baker cites The Market Oracle arguing that the current economic situation is/will be worse than the Great Depression.
  • Chuck Missler links to a Heritage Foundation column by Robert Moffit arguing that a public health plan will erode private health care, in a section on his website with a note saying he does not necessarily “agree with the information on these sites or support the specific organizations.” I think that means he agrees with the conclusion of the article but does not give his blanket endorsement to the Heritage Foundation.
  • Dwayna Litz picks up the Pope/homosexuality/climate change story without further comment.
  • James White/Dividing Line weighs in on (you guessed it) homosexuality, Rick Warren, and the Pope.
  • Dwayna Litz quotes Melissa Etheridge, highlights the section where she refers to changes on the Saddleback website “challenging membership in his church for those who are openly gay.”
  • James White goes over a million (that’s one followed by six zeros) views on YouTube. That’s roughly three thousand views per video, and nearly 22oo subscribers.
  • Ken Silva picks up Ingrid Schlueter’s endorsement of David Cloud’s book, adds links to his own posts.
  • John Baker links to a CNN/Lou Dobbs story on the prospect of an EU-style North American Union during the next Administration.
  • Michael Davis on scheduled address by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Channel 4 to the United Kingdom: “For Ahmadinejad to speak supposedly on behalf of Jesus is actually a slap-on-the-face for Christians–this is the ultimate bah humbug!–an event in the continuing war on Christmas scheduled on Christmas Day itself!”
  • Larry DeBruyn gives some background on the Magi, makes a passing reference to Jack Ruckel of Lafayette, Indiana and his mobile manger scene.
