Top 50 Christian Blogs dominated by the Reformed

I have often said that if two aliens were to come to Earth and split up to study the Christian Internet on the one hand vs the Christian TV and Radio scene on the other they would come to staggeringly different conclusions.  On the so-called “Old Media” the scene is dominated by a wing of the church that is almost entirely unrepresented in the list that follows.  How fascinating that the top Christian blogs reflect a very different collection of people.  I have some theories as to why which perhaps I will talk about sometime, but of the top 50 Christian blogs according to Kent Shaffer’s recent list, a staggering at least nineteen are from the Reformed wing of the church.  I should say that I have only spent a short period of time attempting to categorise these blogs, so do feel free to point out any errors!

    Pretty sure Rachel Held Evans self-identifies as “Evangelical” but you could also consider her “Post-Evangelical”

    Stuff Christians Like is definitely Evangelical Humor

    This whole list is at the end of a link trail back to a company trying to sell software to churches. It is a carrot at the end of a long string. Strange times.

    The overwhelming majority of Protestant Christians in this country are Reformed or one of their descendants, therefore it is no surprise that Reformed blogs are the most popular.

    I like to introduce all of you to a reformer who is preaching in the heart of East Angeles. We lovingly call him the Mexican Puritan of East Los Angeles. You would all be be bless by this mighty man of God. Please keep him in your prayers.
