My goal to read BCC for a month continues. Here are three posts I liked.
SteveP writes a good post on not losing one’s faith because you don’t like some aspect of the Church.
Blair Hodges writes about the various ways Christians over the centuries have understood the atonement. I enjoyed his point that the atonement was about healing relationships (specifically with God, but also with others).
I also enjoyed this post by Michael Austin about Islam as a religion of peace.
On that last one, I wrote a Facebook post a while back on the same subject. My view is a bit different. I think this is not a religious problem, per se, so much as a political problem. Religions that control states are dangerous, but they aren’t the same as religions that don’t. “Islam” is a term we use for both types as if they aren’t really very different things.
