Only Leslie A could turn The Case of the Disappearing Hair Cream into a post about obedience to personal convictions. Whether you agree with her convictions on Contemporary Christian Music or not (she makes a compelling argument), focus on her main point of God’s faithfulness to reward obedience.

Don’t miss Throwback Thursday: Religion or Jesus by Tom, the author at excatholic4christ. His simple story of two men who grew up Catholic speaks volumes.
Let’s close with a second essay from Elizabeth Prata. This time, she examines the notion that “All you need to do to get to heaven is die” that so many people believe. Is heaven guaranteed to good people? If you believe so, I strongly urge you to consider what Elizabeth has to say.
