    Clearly delusional. Many of these artist don't even believe their lyrics, but you do.

    Coldplay - knowing God
    August 22, 2011
    I don't believe in God but I love Coldplay. And Chris Martin is a self-proclaimed "Alltheist". He believes in everything.

    Adagio for Strings, Samuel Barber
    August 21, 2011
    This is a beautiful project! Moving and real -- perhaps a tad too raw for the nay-sayers. It plucks the heartstrings, it does!

    St. Paul, A Shipwreck and The Adjustment Bureau
    August 10, 2011
    Was just doing some research for our trip to Europe and came across The Augsburg Confession, since we will go to Augsburg, and this Article 18, certainly is timely to the discussion. Not sure I understand it completely, John, but thought it interestig to share. Lutherans believe that we have free will in the realm of "civil righteousness" (or "things subject to reason"), but that we do not have free will in "spiritual righteousness". In other words, we are free to choose and act in every regard except for the choice of salvation. Faith is not the work of men, but of the Holy Spirit.

    The Story behind the Book
    August 09, 2011
    I'm reading your book on Metallica right now and just started the chapter on your detractors. Ironically, I came across this devotional page on the C.S. Lewis website today as well. It seems to me that those who would call you a heretic should give it a read:

    http://www.cslewis.org/blog/a-word-of-grace-july-11-2011/#more-3000

    Thank you for your courage, and for bringing more meaning and a fresh insight to our faith.

    Having been raised a non-church going Christian (we were raised with Christian values and with the assurance that there is a god, but with a single mother who had little time) it always strikes me that the "secular" art that brought me to god is excluded in my church.

    Why on earth would god only use "Christian" music or art to spread his love and gospel when Christians are the only ones (largely) who study it? How many non-Christians does anyone know who listen to Christian rock?

    Thanks again, and keep doing what you're doing. It's working.

    God and Gamers - World of Warcraft
    August 04, 2011
    A world where good is good and bad is bad is an impossibility.
    Noone tries to be bad. Even Hitler thought that he was doing the right thing. Would any of you make it the goal of your life to kill all Jews if you thought it was wrong?
    (I'm not sympathizing with Hitler at all!)

    The gospel according to Barack Obama
    July 29, 2011
    Really? That's your take on why God has Obama in office! Reconciliation! The Gospel divides. It does not bring anything goes together. Here you are carrying the Bible in view, preaching a great apostasy.Shame...

    Hardcore fan indeed, trying to justify his experimentation outside of Christian hymns.

    Intimacy; More than Just Sex!
    June 24, 2011
    Good question Chloe. Part of me wants to say that intimacy is much bigger than just sex. And it's true. Our culture equates the two; wrongly I think. I think there is an intimacy with Christ that is greater than any other intimacy (and it's more than enough… easy to say as a happily married man though!). Which doesn't answer the homosexuality part of your question. I'm still working through that issue myself (and have developed my view considerably over the past few years). But I'm not there yet in terms of a final answer. I find this website helpful though - http://www.newdirection.ca/

    Sex and Intimacy
    June 23, 2011
    "You were made to experiences of intimacy."
    How does that pan out for people who are struggling with homosexuality within the church?

    U2; Creation, Fall, Redemption and Return
    June 07, 2011
    "In the beginning, God pulled the sheets off...."
    There've been a few interesting postings leading up to and in the wake of
    U2's recent concerts on the West Coast of the USA. First, at New Hope
    Church in Calgary (which we've linked before here in conjunction with
    various pop culture homilies) June 5 saw a message that examined the
    overall arc of the Christian narrative (creation, fall, redemption &
    return) via the lens of U2. (The page linked simply lists some Scripture
    references paired with lyrics, but you can listen to MP3s of the sermon
    itself.) There are some interesting comments on "White as Snow" and a
    Communion rite using "Moment of Surrender" along the way. Pastor John Van
    Sloten also included some reflections on how the concert fed into the
    preaching experience on his blog.
