Blog of the Week goes out to Eric Jones over at With Hands Held High. Eric has written a great post titled, When is Convenience an Inconvenience? He writes,

I’m not against convenience. I love the aquarium, my natures best whole wheat bread, twitter, Facebook, and more. I’m a geek and depend on a lot of these conveniences in order to even succeed at my job. I understand we don’t have time to mill and bake our own bread or that we don’t have the time or money to visit the Serengeti… What I am against though is complacency.

Pete over at WithoutWax has written a fun post titled, Do Cats Go To Hell?

I was once asked in a Q and A on a Sunday morning if I thought “Dogs go to heaven.” I responded by saying, “The real question is do cats go to hell?” To say I hate cats is a bit much. I don’t hate them, but I certainly don’t love them.

Rachel Evans asks, Should Christian Colleges Teach Evolution? I post this here as a recommended read not because I agree with the position taken, but because I believe Christians should critically think these things through. She writes:

    Amen to the second post by Rachel Evans. Christians need to have their ideas and faith questioned/challenged, and if we cannot come up with explanations for why we believe the way that we do (especially if there’s insurmountable evidence against such a position… *cough*… evolution… *cough*), then we need to be held accountable.

    The entire mindset that we should shy away from anything that questions our beliefs needs to be chucked out the window.

    That, and if Christianity doesn’t offer anything more compelling than a “Get Out Of Hell Free” card, then we should probably just keep our beliefs to ourselves.
