Big bad pharma?

Andrew Sullivan states: "It has been imprinted on an entire generation that Big Pharma is the source of all evil. But the only reason I'm writing this blog at all is because of Big Pharma. They're not angels in America. They're capitalists. But the profit motive has been the most progressive force in pioneering specific medical breakthroughs that we have yet found." … [Read more...]

Bloggaholics of the world unite….

ChristWeb:confesses "I myself do not blog for the purpose of attention, but that attention is something that we all as humans do crave. We enjoy seeing others enjoy our work and we appreciate the recognition that we receive for our work. The problem is not in pursuing such goals, since one should always strive to perform as well as possible. The problem begins when we allow that pursuit of recognition to overshadow the thing itself. We should always remember the reason we initially began writing … [Read more...]

The Blogdom of God

My meteroric rise through the Ecosystem thanks to a few links from a few blogs has got me thinking....What if a few great Christian blogs got together and determined that they would regularly link to each other. Not to fix the results of blog searches, but to highlight excelent quality blogging from throughout the Blogdom of God. What if these core blogs all agreed to post a set of links like the one in this post with suggested additions on their own blogs- a kind of Christian Blogdom hall … [Read more...]

An important day?

Although both Tamasin and Henry have both said sorry to Jesus for their sins before, tonight was slightly different. I asked Tamasin what you had to do to become a Christian. She answered that you had to thank Jesus for taking the blame for us, and say sorry to him for all your lies. I said that it wasn't just lies, but all naughty things, and she agreed. I then said you needed to ask Jesus to be the boss of your life- to be in charge. She said, but I haven't done that and immediately she … [Read more...]

Does it matter?Well blog hits here certainly seem to be increasing rapidly also, so I suppose if I want people to actually read this drivell yes it does. But how many of these visitors actually read these posts rather than surfing on and how many of them actually like them, I guess I will never know! … [Read more...]
