Around the Blog in 80 Seconds

I really appreciated my brother Lance spotting Shelby Steele's inconsistency when describing the Barack Obama campaign as "solely about race." Steele is a far more able scholar than I hope to be, but I found his interviews re: A Bound Man hopelessly... bound in a way that Obama doesn't appear to be.

I had a good time thinking about the gospel and bitterness at the na blog. Check out their series of practical applications of the gospel to common challenges to the Christian life.

How were you called? This was a fun post from Unashamed Workman.

If you know an African-American man who has written off the church for this or that reason, please order Where Are All the Brothers? Straight Answers to Men's Questions About the Chruch for them. Eric does a good job of taking popular objections to the church and providing patient, insightful and winsome responses.

I don't think color or race is the discussion point for Christians regarding Obama, or at least should not be.

What should be the discussion point is can a Christian vote for any candidate,regardless of color, race, gender or party, who is Pro-Death, up to and including the practice of infanticide called partial birth abortion.

I hope that all Christians, regardless of race, color, gender or economic status, will recognize that we will stand accountable to Him one day for votes we cast.
