The Return of the Watchman Awards

After almost a year since the last Watchman Awards, the long missed tradition is being brought back to life. The Watchman Awards is the element of this blog where the local neighborhood watchman scours the internet looking for well written, doctrinally sound, politically right-wing, original articles. This is the segment where I post a list of the top three articles that I found in the blogosphere this week.

It's up to you to let me know via the comments section about other blogs that I may not have yet discovered. Be sure to nominate your friends' blogs for next weeks awards. You can even nominate yourself for one of these much-sought-after trophies! Its a great way to find more blogs and bloggers that are interested in the same things that we are...elevating the truth! Plus its a great way to let others know about your blog.

Don't be shy. Head down to the comments section. Congratulate the winners. Criticize the winners. Just let us know what you think. Give us a link to your blog. Make yourself known. And be sure to swing back by next week for another episode of the Watchman Awards!

And now, I am pleased to present to you this weeks Watchman Awards!

1. The War Against Certainty by Kent Brandenburg at What is Truth?

"Benjamin Franklin is given credit for saying: "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." Influential nineteenth-century, liberal, British thinker John Stuart Mill wrote: "There is no such thing as absolute certainty, but there is assurance sufficient for the purposes of human life." I don't believe either of those guys lined up with God in this matter of certainty. I'm certain that God not only wants us to be certain, but He provided all the evidence we needed to be certain."

2. Have You Any Room For Jesus by Jerry Bouey at Buy The Truth

"It is almost Christmas once again. Looking forward to time we will spend with family and friends. All too often we forget the meaning behind this holiday - the meaning we say we are celebrating Christmas for!"

3. Daffy Definitions by Joe at Joe's Jottings

"It seems there are those in this county who would make it their practice to define, or re-define, words to mean whatever they want them to mean at the time they are using them. The way a society defines words depends on many factors, such as their linguistic origin, their historical meaning and, to a lesser extent, their common usage."

  • I do so appreciate your kindness.

    My blog is an eclectic mess of my sometimes jumbled thoughts, and occasionally the thoughts of others.

    I enjoyed your Huckabee comments.

  • Thanks. I really enjoy reading a lot of the "eclectic mess" that comes from your blog. Keep it up.
