We are going to start a series on reaching Muslims with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The reality is that it is going to be almost impossible to reach committed Jihadist Muslims. Not impossible but almost impossible. Most likely it is going to take a converted Muslim to reach them unless God supernaturally does something. So this series is going to be directed towards reaching those who are ‘moderate Muslims’.
I am sure Christians have different viewpoints about Halloween. The question I have for Christians is how did you come up with your perspective on Halloween? Was it based upon how you were raised? Was it based upon feelings and emotions? Or was it based upon biblical principles. Does Halloween promote a positive, uplifting environment or an environment that encourages evil? Does the secular concept of Halloween glorify God?
Unless a person is sheltered from society, it is obvious that much of Halloween is focused on violence, death, horror, gore, fear, occult.
If a person says these themes are just for fun, they certainly have bought into a lie. How can a Christian say that the promoting of evil is fun? (More)
Delete Inactive Blogs
It is time for us once again to delete unused blogs. This means we need to delete all inactive blogs. Blogs are considered inactive when they do not have more than one posting or they have not been used in the last 30 days. We permanently delete inactive blogs-this means they cannot be restored.
So, if you only have one posting in your blog, or you have not posted on your blog in the last 30 days you need to post an article in your blog within the next 48 hours to prevent your blog from being permanently deleted.
We have a variety of blog features that several blog users are not using. Some of these features are:
Categories-Sort your blog posts according to categories
Links-Create links to your favorite web sites.
Crystal Poll Surveys-Create surveys for your blogs
Personal Avatar-Remove the CBS avatar and replace with your own avatar/image.
Gravatar-Associate an image to your email address. When commenting on other blogs your image will show up.
Go to the following links to learn how to implement these and other features.
Be sure and update your blog if you want to keep it. Let us know if you would like us to permanently delete your blog.
If you are a blog owner, we have a suggestion for you.
When you write an article get in the habit of using the 'More' link. Also known as the 'Split page' link. When writing an article it is the icon on the far right that looks like a split page. After about 2-3 paragraphs you should insert the 'more' link. The reason for doing this is that you will then be able to have several article previews on your home page. If you don't do this your home page will very long and hard for people to see the various articles on your site.
If you use the 'more' link then when someone goes to your blog, in the center section they will see short previews to your posts. If one seems of interest they can click the more link.
We have added the It's okay to say Merry Christmas button ad to the bottom of all templates. If you have a blog with ChristianBlogSites.com ad you do not want the ad on your blog, we can provide you a blog template that does not have the ad. The cost is a one time fee of $10. If you would an ad-free template, go to the following link. Be sure when you place your order to enter your blog username and blog title.
As a reminder the purpose for the button ad is to hep raise funds for Fairhaven House and There is Hope Radio. Two ministries that help individuals who are struggling with addictions. All net profits from button sales go directly to the ministry. None of the staff of these ministries receives a salary. (More)
This is for all ChristianBlogSites.com blog owners.
It has been the policy of ChristianBlogSites.com (CBS) to not have annoying ads on blog sites. We do not sell ad space to any organization. (For most 'free' blog sites, ads are the means to be able to offer free blog sites.)
Until 2009 we did not charge for blogs. For new subscribers I charge an annual fee of $5 a year. However most subscribers continue their blogs without paying the $5 annual fee. Thus, annual fees do not cover CBS expenses. (More)
