Blogs that make me think

Posted by Chance on April 24, 2007

I was honored by Josh from Gabbatha as a blog that makes him think. To continue the tradition, I will choose 5 blogs on my roll that make me think. All of them make me think to some extent, but here are 5 that come to mind.

Glen Dean – I once did a Google search for “Christian Libertarian” and his blog popped up. Glen and I agree on many things concerning Christianity and politics. He has a unique perspective on issues in that he is a conservative Christian yet is weary to use government power to accomplish Christian goals and ideals.

Katherine Coble from Just Another Pretty Face – Kat is one of the figures from the Nashville blogosphere, and I ran into her blog from her comments at Glen Dean’s site. She also happens to be a Christian and a libertarian, so I enjoy her take on philosophical and political issues. That, and her analysis of Lost.

Dan Trabue at Payne Hollow – Dan is a man that is passionate about environmental issues, such as global warming and our consumption of natural resources. He has many well-thought out posts concerning nature and environment and all that hippy stuff (just kidding Dan). Even though we don’t see eye-to-eye on many issues, I do admire his concern for the earth. If I did some research on environmental issues, I’d probably agree with him quite a bit in that area.

Michael from the Levellers – Michael is a pacifist and a democratic socialist (correct me if that description is incorrect). He is very opposed to the war and believes in a progressive economic system. I am sure, at one time, we agreed on something. I think it was that Sam Adams is a great beer. Actually, I think we hold a lot of spiritual views in common, and we share the idea of not completely trusting those in authority. Despite our disagreements, his articles are always a great read.

Neil Simpson – Neil Simpson has many great articles on Christianity, including Christian apologetics. I also like his articles on Pro-life reasoning. Neil also posts on a variety of other issues, ranging from morality to barbecuing.

Here are the rules as explained at Gabbatha

    Thanks, Chance! I enjoy your blog and I especially enjoy your comments on mine (sometimes I feel outnumbered on my own blog, so it is good to have some moral support!).

    Thanks, Chance. Quite an honor.
