-Terry Smith gave us not one but two awesome blog posts this week: I Am Not A Free Man and The Idolatry of the Pursuit of Happiness. Seriously, check this guy out!
-Peter Rollins shows how focusing too much on Jesus' ethics can easily lead to legalism.
-Alise Wright explains why, despite being horribly written, Fifty Shades of Grey is so popular:
I tried reading Fifty Shades of Grey once, but couldn't get past the first two pages. It's basically Twilight for grown-ups.
We’ve grown weary of the story that has us as mere observers of our sexuality, we want to be full participants. We want to know that it’s okay to want to orgasm every time (or, you know, more). We want to know that it’s okay to have physical desires that aren’t just about intimacy or romance. We want to know that we have power over our own sexuality. We want to know that it’s okay to want to fuck.
-And finally, normally I hate both dubstep and Pentecostalism, but when put together it's pretty funny!
