Elect Exiles is nearly 6 months old, so I thought I would highlight some of our more popular/interesting articles for those who may be new to our blog! Also, don’t forget to check out our Church History Quiz competition. You could win a free book.
More than anything else we hope make much of our Lord Jesus Christ in these articles by digging into the Scriptures as well as addressing issues of cultural importance from a biblically informed worldview in the process.
- There Will be Blood and Postmodernism :: An informed commentary on the Academy Award winning movie from a Christian perspective. We have also published a post about the movie Atonement.
- Christ’s Righteousness, Not Our Own Pt. 2 :: A popular post on the gospel, how we are saved and how Christ’s death atones for those who believe.
- The Purpose of God in Salvation :: An exposition of Ephesians 2:8-10 hitting on some crucial issues that people often miss in this oft quoted text . . .
- Reconciled to Christ Part 1: The TRUE Secret :: This is our most popular article. It debunks the worldview presented in the best selling book The Secret (endorsed by Oprah) and sets forth the true purpose for which you and I exist.
- Miller Lite :: An honest and critical, but fair review of Donald Miller’s popular book, Blue Like Jazz.
- Abortion’s Shades of Gray? :: Is abortion really a black and white issue or are there various shades of gray?
- We also have articles on Spiritual Gifts (4), Cosmetic Surgery, Slavery and the New Testament (3), Leadership in the Local Church, Spanking, and Divorce and Remarriage (2 posts and more to come).
Well, these are a little sampling of what we have put together here at EE. I hope you continue to visit our blog and are encouraged to boast more of the cross of Jesus Christ!
