lunes linkage

I haven't done this for a while - when I'm blogging nearly daily, on Monday (lunes, from when I was taking Spanish classes) I gather all the open tabs from my blog reader and post what I thought were the most interesting ones.  (It has a purpose for me also - if I remember a post that I want to read again, if I put it here, I can find it.)

Fifty Fruits of Pride - a self-diagnostic; from Gospel Centric


I've been doing reading on Genesis and the creation story -

The meaning of "expanse" in Genesis 1; from True Paradigm


The Theology of Blame Shifting; from Jonathan Moorhead

No one is guilty of their sin anymore! It is always someone else’s, or something else’s fault. If it’s not your how your parents treated you, then it’s your genes, your surroundings, or maybe even the Devil made you do it. We are all victims!


On the political side: Hero vs. Zero (one of a series - with lots to work from - from HillBuzz)

Wearing Red On Friday Can Be Helpful...
...If you are, say, wandering into traffic while staring into your electronic binkie, it may help drivers stop soon enough as to only maim you instead of killing you.


@amyalkon Go naked on Friday to support anti-asshat-think. Wearing pink doesn't stop breast cancer, wearing red doesn't eliminate heart disease.

    The self-diagnostic in the 50 fruits of pride post reminds me of the latest religious iPhone/iPad/iPod app, "Confession." Good questions to ask oneself in an examination of conscience. cf. Joe Carter at First Things.

    Lewis made a (merciful) distinction between pride and vanity that isn't honored in the Gospel Centric post:

    "That is why vanity, though it is the sort of Pride which shows most on the surface, is really the least bad and most pardonable sort. The vain person wants praise, applause, admiration, too much and is always angling for it. It is a fault, but a childlike and even (in an odd way) a humble fault. It shows that you are not yet completely contented with your own admiration. You value other people enough to want them to look at you. You are, in fact, still human. The real black, diabolical Pride comes when you look down on others so much that you do not care what they think of you. [...] We must try not to be vain, but we must never call in our Pride to cure our vanity;"
