friday favorites: christian-themed websites

2009-07-10

I am not trying to be wordy when I say “christian-themed,” only accurate.  These website are not the typical “holier than thou”, “I’ll tell you what to believe” kind of site.  Rather they operate out of the box and make you think about things in a non-threatening way.

  • The Ongoing Adventures of ASBO Jesus by Jon Birch- This site is making its second debut on Friday Favorites, but remains a great site. As I said before, “The cartoons hold up a mirror to “christchuns” (that charming group of church goers who identify more with church culture than with Christ culture), to non-believers, and to ourselves.”
  • Church Marketing Sucks – they describe themselves as “The blog to frustrate, educate and motivate the church to communicate, with uncompromising clarity, the truth of Jesus Christ.”  I describe them as Christians who refuse to accept the status quo about the way churches portray themselves to the world, and pushes church folk to be more discerning about their image.
  • The Church Experiment – Steven Fuller’s testimony:  “In 2000, I became a Christian at the age of 23…[insert longer testimony here]…[started from] no church, to attending church, to working in a church, to starting a church, to leaving the church – all in less than eight years. Now, I am visiting 52 churches in 52 weeks in order to redefine my faith.”  How many of us have been here, thought we were here, or wished we could be here?  Maybe not everyone, but at least a few.  Awesome blog about his experiences going to every kind of church you can imagine.  I am always surprised at where he finds God and where he doesn’t.
