Under the essential reading heading

Alan Knox has written a superb post entitled "Won't Get Fooled Again". A couple excerpts:

Once upon a time, God gathered people in fields, and on a mountain, and in a valley, and in homes, and in a school. How foolish! Not today. If people want to meet with God today, they can come to his house - a church building. Wouldn't it be foolish for people to think that God would come to them when he has beautiful buildings now?

Once upon a time, God used pagan prophets and philosophers. How foolish! Not today. Nothing good can come from culture. Today, God wants his people to read Christian books, watch Christian movies, and listen to Christian music. If God has something to say, he would never be so foolish as to speak through a pagan.

Alan's post is part of a synchroblog on the topic "God's Call to the Fools". I'm looking forward to being part of a synchroblog very soon. Stay tuned...
