Thoughts?

Also here's a thought experiment: Could Sandel have become Sandel teaching at Bridgepoint instead of Harvard?

My piece wondering if technology is helping or hindering our civic development. (I will note that I heard Romney was mad at Santorum this week for excessive robo-calling. Really? So I'll be talking one-on-one with Romney when he makes his way to CA?)

A difference between naturalism and Christianity. Naturalism asks: Am I useful? Therefore, might I be loved? Christianity asks: Am I loved? Therefore, might I be useful?

One of the three virtues for our times: long-suffering.

We must learn long-suffering again. American-style consumerism agitates dissatisfaction so that we search for contentment in the new. But intimacy is nurtured by long-suffering, which teaches us that contentment is found in those relationships we have allowed to become old.

Isn't it interesting that we rely so much on material objects to satisfy our non-material cravings? Why?

I think we also rely on "entertainment" to feed our imagination to fill that hole in our soul.

This has probably already been done. Anyway, I created a Google Map called Simple Living and opened it up to anyone to edit. Drop a pin somewhere and briefly describe how you're ditching excessive consumerism and embracing simplicity.

That this process is happening on the web is decidedly ironic.  I get the point, but the REAL practitioners of minimalist living will never know anything about this project. ( I don't mean to come off negative, but it's funny)

Just feeling a twinge of guilt that I'm neglecting G+. That's all I have to say.

If the "heavens declare the glory of God," then they first of all declare there is a Creator. That is Paul's point in Romans. Considering the universe, it is nearly infinitely improbable that it happened ex nihilo. Far more probable and logical and experiential is that it was created ex nihilo. To believe otherwise is not so much a display of intellect as a display of the choice of one's heart.

"A capitalist society required not just capitalist practices among urban elites, but a demographically widespread social acceptance among Christians of the counter-biblical notion that the good life was the goods life."

Excellent read for those interested in the direction and possibilities of evangelical scholarship.

Question: Got any ideas?
Hypothetically speaking, if someone where to post 95 theses challenging consumerism, where might that person nail them?

How about nail them on the side of the Wall Street Bull.
