Useful religious or Biblical blogs in alphabetical order. This list was started by Kent Brandenburg at his blog What Is Truth?
Bible Bulletin Board This is mainly a huge pile of John MacArthur material, easily attained, along with people much like him. Here is what is wrong with him. He isn’t a Biblical separatist either personally or ecclesiasticlly. He’s a Calvinist. He’s universal church. He often will not make the correct, strong application of Scripture, especially on cultural issues. However, he consistently has worked hard on coming to a correct interpretation of Scripture. He essentially gets a bad rap on the blood, even though he doesn’t represent a Scriptural position with his metonym for death. He is getting stronger in personal and ecclesiastical separation as he gets older–we should rejoice in that.
Blog and Mablog Doug Wilson writes here. He is Mr. Classical Education. Mr. Idaho of Cultural Issues (Courting, Fidelity, Education, Husband/Wife). Mr. Satire. He even supports the KJV with some great arguments. He’s an interesting writer. His organization there, Canon Press, puts out a lot of good material. Use the good, discard the bad. Something like that. The bad would be the ecclesiology, the eschatology, some of the soteriology, among a few other doctrines and issues.
Christian Classics Ethereal Library You can download from here to read several classics without leaving your leather swivel office chair. You may even nod off and drool as well. A huge library at your finger tips. What can you say?
Clement of Rome Did you know that this first century contemporary of the Apostle John was local only in his ecclesiology? Check it out yourself.
Corporal Punishment of Children This is the one click resource for obedience to Proverbs 23:13-14.
Current Christian This is the new blog from former chief moderator at Sharper Iron, Greg Linscott. He is not one normally to assume the worst. Pastor Linscott supports the KJV, uses God-honoring music, preaches expositionally, and represents a true Gospel. He doesn’t stand the same on the church and on many separation issues. However, this new blog is a useful resource on keeping up with what is going on, well, currently in the world regarding those who call themselves Christians, hence, Current Christian.
Dissidens on Remonstrans Here is a guy that is more disliked by Jason Janz and Sharper Iron than Kent Brandenburg is. He has many good things to say on the subject of worship, worship music, and culture in general, written in a very interesting way. He is very well read, which means that you will probably learn something. You will probably see several theological differences, but we are probably very similar on the nature of God and what salvation is.
Don Johnson Don is a pastor of a Baptist church on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. He is not the same as us on the nature of the church, on preservation of Scripture, and on certain cultural standards. However, we have a very similar militancy and view of the world that makes it enjoyable to read him. He also preaches expositionally, which you will see when you read his blog. Don treats separatists with civility.
FBC Radio The music here is of an unusually high standard for listening and downloading.
Fidelis This site will keep you updated on first amendment, freedom of religion news and issues.
Fire and Ice OK, I like reading the Puritans even though they’d kill me if they were alive. No, I don’t like the Massachusetts Bay Colony. I’m more of a Providence, Rhode Island fan. I like the Virginia Baptists even better. Why the Puritans? They are so thorough and so reverent. They write great stuff on salvation and sanctification, minus the Calvinism. So there.
Free Religious Books Online Thought the word “free’ might get your attention.
Jason Janz Is Da Man This is a site called Sharper Iron, but it is actually the self-proclaimed privately owned business of Jason Janz, who speaks for a theological subculture called the “young fundamentalists.” Sharper Iron truly will have some good articles and is a good place to get the scoop on some important issues, religious news in general, and especially news applying to the fundamentalist Christian movement in America. If you interact here, you will meet some nice people, but be prepared for some obnoxious arrogance and Christianized feminism.
Precept Austin Evangelicals of a different mind-set operate this site, but you get a great deal of good material to get ready for a study or sermon here.
Pyromaniacs Let’s be honest, this is the Phil Johnson site. And Phil Johnson gets his chops from being the editor of most of John MacArthur’s books. You won’t need to ask him. Just nod appreciatively. Can’t help checking out what this branch of “evangelicalism” is saying. They sure are an inconsistent group, for a whole lot of reasons. They are a worldly group that goes after worldliness. They say they love Spurgeon, but Spurgeon would absolutely cuff them around if he were alive. That makes them Spurgeon wannabees. They will go on and on with dialogue with leftists and Charismatics, but if you are to the right of them, don’t plan on a conversation; just get prepared for ridicule.
The Reformed Reader We’re not Calvinists, but minus that, here is a site with some very good historical material, writings, confessions, creeds, and more. I have to admit that I like to read John Owen, Stephen Charnock, Richard Baxter, among others. You’ll notice here online Baptist history material and even local church ecclesiology from some.
Religious Affections Because of our view of God, Scott Aniol and I see things closely on the matter of worship. I guess that means I’m much like Mike Harding on this too. They both may want to change their position now that I have made this statement. If they could only give a hearing to the Scriptural and historical view of the preservation of Scripture.
Way of Life Literature–A wealth of information from an Independent, Fundamental, Baptist perspective.Â David Cloud authors the majority of information presented here. HeÂ also has a very extensive American and international church directory.
World Magazine Blog Often politically correct, but they are worth checking out now and then to get what news is of interest to people called Christians.
