top 5As usual, thanks for your comments and for sharing these posts with others. In the past month, nearly half of my pageviews originated from you sharing these pieces in social media.

Here were November’s top 5 posts:

1. Christians and Pornography - Pleading with professing Christians to stop viewing/reading porn. And defining “porn” perhaps a bit differently than normal.

2. When “Missional Church” gets too outwardly focused - What happens when we take the church’s sole purpose as outreach and witness? A tragic misunderstanding of the nature of the church.

3. Christians, Capitalism, and Ayn Rand - I initially posted this in August, but it’s still in the top 5, perhaps because of some big event that took place in November. My premise: the Christian and capitalist worldviews are incompatible.

4. The Stuck State of the UMC and Some Therapy - November brought more bad news for anyone hoping the UMC will be able to change its unwieldy behemoth of a structure before it collapses. I try to offer some therapy.

5. “What does it take to become a member?” (pt. I, beliefs) - What beliefs should we require anyone to have if they are going to join the church? Which beliefs is it okay to be different on?
