New Around the Blogosphere

Here are a few things from around the blogosphere, including a couple that would be easy to miss.

First, André Gagné has a blog, which those interested in the Nag Hammadi codices and other aspects of ancient religion will want to keep an eye on.

Next, The Ancient Bookshelf is another blog to keep an eye on. The most recent post is about the good scribe as antidote to anti-Jewish readings of the Gospels. But there are also posts on topics such as translating Star Wars into Ge’ez!

Hacking Christianity asks if we are in the Matrix.

Apollon eJournal is a journal where undergraduates can publish in all areas of the humanities, including religion.

Bryan Bibb blogged about conservative Evangelical rejection of the (new) NIV.

Morgan Guyton shared a guest post by Jason Micheli, about the contrast between Christians who won’t make cakes for lesbians, and Jesus who attended a wedding and ate with sinners.

And finally, Chaplain Mike commented on the sign below, saying (among other things) “Whatever this “Christian” thing is about, it is about earth. It is about life on earth. It is about life with God on earth…”

    Just to be fair, the blog on my site is a guest post from my buddy Jason Micheli who’s writing some really powerful stuff that needs a broader audience at http://tamedcynic.org.

      Thanks for the clarification!

    So, “the man who does not walk…” could refer to Jesus, but “the one who does not walk…” couldn’t possibly. What‽

    This notion that proper translation is free from interpretation just makes me more sure than ever that everyone ought to learn more than one language.

    Hello James, thanks for having given us all these links!

    I find the sign somewhat blasphemous. After a person is dead, God will still try to reach and save him, as I try to explain here as best I can (for those interested in the topic): http://lotharlorraine.wordpress.com/2013/08/30/salvation-by-love-erlosung-durch-die-liebe-unten/

    This is a similar panel mounted by fundamentalists which launched the first atheistic bus campaign in the UK with signs: “there is probably no God so stop worrying”.

    Progressive and liberal Christians ought to speak out against that so that the world won’t think this is what all Christians believe.

    Lovely greetings from Europe.
