Top 10 Posts for 2011 at the Halfway Point

  1. The Shack Review – I’m amazed at the visits (and sometimes comments) that this post continues to get. I may soon be giving away a copy of Burning Down ‘The Shack’: How the ‘Christian’ bestseller is deceiving millions.
  2. A Look at Passion City Church – The comments here come with some emotion and healthy discussion. I think they’ve finally started meeting regularly which is why the activity has been so high. I was even contacted to ask where “we” meet assuming I was part of Passion City.

  3. Dynamite Sermon Illustrations – I am not as surprised by this one given the powerful visual for preaching by relating dunamis to dynamite. I still owe this post a part two.

  4. Memorial Day 2009 Worship Service – This is a sensitive topic that is often discussed around certain American Patriotic holidays so I’m not surprised by its popularity.

  5. Open Email: SBC Pastors’ Conference 2011 Doctrinal Concern – Thankfully, this concern was remedied and from online view and most reports the Pastors’ Conference went very well.

  6. Keller On Fanatical Christians (with example?) Update – Tim Keller has some great insight, but adding a happenstance tweet by Emir Caner that was sent unsolicited to contrast Keller’s point…well.

  7. The Southern Baptist Phantom Menace –  Building bridges in the SBC isn’t always easy. I tried to look for a more healthy way to tackle some disagreements in the SBC. I was recently told by one attendee that this post made its rounds so to speak at the conference. I hope it was edifying.

  8. Modalism Revisted: Phillips, Craig & Dean– This is an important topic because theology matters and PD&C are a pretty popular music group in Christian praise and worship.

  9. Is T.D. Jakes Now Trinitarian? – This post deals with a similar topic on the Trinity and the ever famous T.D. Jakes. Again, theology matters.

  10. Joel Osteen’s church “confession”– Other than the name “Joel Osteen” being associated with this post I have no idea why it is so popular.
  • Bonus: One Nation Under A Mormon God? – The stats for this post were close to # 10 and recently garnered a lot of attention for some reason. Probably due to the topic of Mormonism.

I’m not sure if I even have 10 posts for the year! I usually get some traffic when I do post, but I can’t bring myself to do it consistently.

Alright, I see these are all time posts. I might just have to steal the idea as I have been thinking about why certain posts of mine continue to get traffic years after they were originally posted.
