I AM THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BLOGGER? — UPDATED TO INCLUDE ALL SEVEN NOMINEES

I must admit delusions of grandeur come too easily to me. Because I daydream so much about my great accomplishments to be, I enjoy Calvin and Hobbes. Even though I do not especially enjoy laughing at myself, I have no trouble laughing at a make-believe character that so well displays my own sins.

Anyway, it seems that God has contrived Creation to keep our egos from exploding. I suspect that’s why any honor award comes with strings attached. Therefore, Teresa Rice at Catholibertarian included THE RULES (see The Most Influential Blogger Award).rules

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you

3. Answer 7 questions

4. Nominate ( no limit of nominations ) other bloggers for this award and link back to them.

5. Notify those bloggers of the award requirements.

Here are my answers to the questions.

1. If you could create your own planet what would it look like? 

When God created the He said it was good. We messed it up (Genesis 3:14-21). With God’s help, I will live in a world where I do not sin.

2. If you could visit one nation you have never visited before, what nation would that be? 

I have been to Alaska and Canada. To see a wild place, one that humans have not trashed, is an amazing experience. We see then what cannot survive our intrusions.

I suspect visiting a remote island in tropical Indonesia would be even more amazing.

God made us to tend His Garden, but we have not done too well.

3. Who is your favorite saint? 

Saint Patrick. My father was of Irish descent, and the priests at our church were from Ireland.

4. What is your favorite animal?  

The dog. The Bible does not speak well of the dog. Why? The dog is an unclean animal. Moreover, ancient people had enough trouble raising their children; they did not have the resources to designate any of their critters pets. The ancient Jews apparently regarded dogs as opportunistic beasts, much like a sinful man.

Fortunately, God did not burden Christians with the distinction between clean and unclean animals, and we have the wealth to enjoy the company of dogs as pets.

5. What is your favorite song?

Psalm 22. The origin of the word psalm comes from a Greek word that refers to playing on a stringed instrument and singing.  And the psalms in the Bible were originally sung, but the music is now long lost.

When David played his music, it must have been beautiful. We know it soothed one man’s soul (see 1 Samuel 16:14-23).

Why Psalm 22? Check out MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?

6. If you could meet one person who is still alive who would you choose to meet?

Christ Jesus.

7. What book, other than the Bible, has influenced your life? How?  

After I read The Age of Reason by Thomas Paine, for a long time I drifted. THOMAS
PAINE’S PROFESSION OF FAITH
 explains how I recovered my faith in Christ Jesus.

Here are my nominations: 

Although I would enjoy reading what they post, note that I do not necessarily expect the blogs I nominate to post anything. That’s because some of them are highly focused. My goal is simply to direct what traffic I can to seven great blogs.

  • Settled In Heaven focuses principally on Bible exposition. That’s not to say that Rob Barkman does not survey what the Bible has to say about certain subjects. He does, and his latest post, The Human Conscience Series: “Summary Of Our Study”, provides such an example. Why does Barkman do that. I would imagine he understands we must try to understand the Bible as a whole work. If we just look at individual passages in isolation, we miss part of the meaning.
  • NooneOfAnyImport’s Blog belongs to a homeschooling mom. Thus, although this blog posts on a wide variety of topics, there is a certain focus on education. Check on Yuck, The Movie. It’s hilariously funny!
  • The River Walk is a religious blog. Instead of Bible exposition, BJ concentrates on making the Bible relevant. So even a post that touches upon politics, A Broken System (7/27/13), really isn’t about politics. It’s about our own brokenness.
  • We do not want to see our government as the enemy. Nonetheless, because we have so little regard for our Constitution, our leaders also regard the Constitution with contempt. Therefore, when aurorawatcherak posts an item such Plundering & Ravishing, we have to take her seriously.
  • If you want to get to know, understand, and appreciate the great philosophers, ‘s blog, With All I Am, is a great place to start.  Daniel approaches Christian apologetics with an uniquely philosophical bent. Read Nietzsche and Two Unpleasant Implications of Darwinism, and you too will be hooked.
  • lynleahz.com is a blog that mixes Christian devotion with Biblical prophecy, world news and other assorted topics. Obeying God When It Makes No Sense is a great read. The articles on topics that could be related to Biblical prophecy will leave you scratching your head. As Christ Jesus said, no one knows the hour, but we live in bewildering times. So today is the time to be about the Lord’s business. Today we should be spreading the Good News.
  • Thinking in Christ examines current events with a Biblical perspective.  Why should you be afraid of the government spying on you, me, and every other American? Check out It’s not the Data.

Just as Teresa  did, I have changed only three of the questions. So your seven questions will include questions 1, 3, 4, and 7 from above plus…

2.  Why do you think you exist?

5.  What gives meaning to your life?

6.  What do you think will happen to you when you die?
