Forum Friday

Apparently, I need Renah Thompson to post more often at Ophelimos.  She did an excellent job on the article, and it showed, because we had the most traffic here since the launch date. The results are in from the poll last week, and an overwhelming majority of the four votes cast indicated they wanted to see […]

Forum Friday

Trying out a new feature here – Polls! (Oh, the excitement!) Anyway, my question to you all this week is which format do you prefer for the Bible studies here at Ophelimos?  The first two psalms were more in detail but longer posts.  Psalms 3 & 4 were shorter posts, but a little less detailed.  Or […]

Forum Friday

“Forum Friday” is going to be a new (adjusted) feature here at Ophelimos each Friday.  Rather than continue with “Focus Friday”, I decided that “Forum Friday” captures what I’m trying to do with this space a little better.  Plus, it allows me to keep up the alliteration factor, which as a pastor always tickles my fancy. […]

Failed Alliteration Friday

No “Focus Friday” today because I’m not actually asking any questions for the purpose of refining the blog.  We’ll review the shorter posts and new format for the Bible studies next week when we have more of a sample size to work with. On to the Links: Two articles from Answers in Genesis this week do […]

Focus Friday

Well, we’re twelve days and two psalms into the blogging experience.  Since the inception of Ophelimos, it’s been clear that this needs to be a Bible study blog.  It’s also clear that there is still a long way to go to really be improving the content here.  I for one have been blessed by writing […]

Focus Friday

I’ve decided to focus my efforts here at Ophelimos.  This first week of blogging and Bible study has been such a blessing to me that I’ve decided to make the entire focus of the blog on Bible Study.  I originally planned to have some posts of a more general nature, but the need for Bible […]

Getting Started

First of all, what’s up with ophelimos? I chose this name for the blog for a few reasons: It allows me to quote 2 Tim. 3:16, which serves as a reminder of my stance on Scripture: I believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God. It reflects my love of the […]
