Circle of Moms Top 25 Faith Blogs: The Real Reason I Want You To Vote

One of my kind readers nominated me for the Circle of Moms Top 25 Faith blogs this week! I’m really honored, and excited at the exposure this will bring my blog even if I don’t make it to the top 25. (highly unlikely with such names as Ann Voskamp and Sarah Mae near the top!)

Now, of course, I’m gonna ask you to vote for me, and I’m glad to say it’s a very simple, quick little thing you can do as a way to say thank you for the work we put into this blog. All you have to do is click on this little button…


…and you’ll be taken straight to my listing where you click on the little orange button. In a second or two, it will turn grey and show that your vote has been added to the total. You can vote every 24 hours – and for as many blogs as you like on the list! The winners will, of course, be the ones who get the most total votes during the period of the contest indicating both a large and faithful readership.

And that brings me to the real reason for this post. Not to promote myself, but more importantly, the great, Christian blogs that actually stand a chance to make it to the top 25. Because here’s the thing – there is some stiff competition in the top 25 between the faith blogs we all know and love, and some blogs that, frankly, I’m annoyed are even considered to be in the same category.  I’m talking about the witch blogs. I’m just really disturbed that self-confessing witches are ranking higher than woman like Sally Clarkson, Ann Voskamp. This blog list is going to get a lot of exposure and guide lots of traffic to the ones that make the final list. And with just 2 min. a day for the next week you can help God-glorifying blogs get the place they deserve – the top of the list!!!

Go vote today! Here’s the link to the entire list.

    I believe that it should be clarified that the original Hebrew and Greek passages of the bible did not use a word meaning “witchcraft” (as quoted “I Samuel 15:23 KJV
    “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft…”), but the true translation means those who use spoken curses or poison to harm or murder others. King James demanded to have that specific word used during the translation. Now, I don't know about you, but in my life I have read and studied (as it's my job) multiple stories of women from all faiths and walks of life using poison to harm others or “muttering curses” that imply the wish to harm another. Just food for thought…

    Additionally, Jesus Christ came to this earth with love and compassion for all. He mingled and spoke with those that no other self-respecting person would touch or even notice. He did not spare his love for one while loathing another. He promoted peace and tolerance among those around him. Forgive me, but I don't believe he would look upon people slandering his sisters and brothers, his Father's children with a smile on his face. The bible states that God loves all his children, even those that do not follow Him. Why would your actions of such hatred and intolerance be considered Christ-like when that is not the way that the God you follow would act? Just my opinion.

    Good luck in the contest!

    I agree with you, Trina. It's disturbing to see so many pagan & witchcraft blogs being promoted. I think this verse pretty much sums up how GOD feels about the topic…

    I Samuel 15:23 KJV
    “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft…”

    Enough said.

    (And now a post dealing with the sin of rebellion in our own lives would be in order… Personally convicting? Oh yes.)

    Personally, I would have no problem with a Christian in the lead. My husband and much of my family and friends are Christian. I think it can be a very beautiful faith, it's just not for me.

    I would like to clear up the misinformation that Pagans worship satan. We do not. Satan is a part of the Christian belief, and in such, we don't even believe in him, much less worship him.

    I'd also like to add that there are several Christian blogs that I am voting for daily, and have encouraged my readers to vote for, because of their kind comments to me when others were not so kind. If they were to pass me in votes, I'd be pleased as punch for them. =)

    It seems funny to me that most of your comments here are somewhat perturbed at what you wrote…it's okay for witches to enter the contest, but it's not okay for you to have an opinion about it. Witchcraft goes directly against what Christianity does, so of course, we are not going to like that they are in the lead in this sort of “contest”, just as, if they are honest, they would not like to see a strong Christian blogger in the lead. In the long run, quite frankly, this contest doesn't really matter because “Greater is He that is in (us), than he that is in the world.” We know who wins the final spiritual warfare. It doesn't really matter what anybody “likes” about what the Bible teaches, patriarchal or against the worship of Satan, it IS what the Bible teaches. Truth reigns over error. If people fear the truth and chose error, they cannot really know sweet love, the love of God, because “Perfect love casteth out fear.” What a sad way to live, rejecting truth because of the fear of what it might mean because, after all, isn't that why most people reject it? Embrace truth, the love of God is far superior than the fancy trappings of a life of pleasure and a chasing after ones own satisfaction of hearing what one wants to hear. Truth may be hard to hear at times, but it is good for the soul. And the promise of a future in heaven…why would anyone pass that up?

    Kind of ironic. It appears one of the reasons the pagan blogs are ahead is in large part to posts like these by some of the Christian bloggers. I like what this woman wrote. http://journeytobeloved.blogspot.com/2011/05/greatest-of-theseeven-for-witch.html

    ( As for me, I'm cringing at the fact that some of the top Christian bloggers appear to be strict patriarchal fundamentalists–which as you know, I think is a very unhealthy belief system to raise children in.)

    Hey Trina,
    I voted for you! I don't quite understand why Christian blogs are listed among pagan blogs, if they were Jewish or Muslim…I could kind of understand it, as they are more mainstream. Seems like a rather vague definition of “Faith” Blogs though.
    We live in a fallen world…I think that's why the paganism ones are so popular.

    Actually I've been seeing this quite a bit with this contest. While I do understand where people are coming from, it is a “moms of faith” blog contest, not a Christian blog contest. Women of other faiths, whether pagan, Jewish, Muslim or some obscure, unknown faith–if they are blogging about their religious beliefs, then they qualify. I am not sure why it would bother you that several pagan blogs are ranking high in a generic “faith blog” competition?
    The truth is that they are ranking high because people read them and like them. They speak to people in a way that, perhaps, many Christian bloggers do not.
    Just something to consider…

    I'm sorry that you are annoyed by the fact that faiths other than Christian are in the running for this contest. I'm not sure why my faith is lesser than yours and should not be considered for a contest of religious blogs by moms – I am both a very religious woman, a mom, and a legally ordained minister.

    I wish *you* the best of luck with the contest.
