  1. It’s pretty simple: .

    When I do the carnival, I give the benefit of the doubt if I don’t know whether the writer is a Christian. If the post that is submitted doesn’t carry an overtly Christian message, I look at the writer’s overall blog for reasons I can say yes to their submission anyway. My bias is to say yes if I can find a way to justify it.

    I excluded two submissions this time: one that was obviously a commercial advertisement (carnival spam), and another for which I couldn’t see any remote connection to our topic, either in the specific post that was submitted, or in the rest of the blog, which in this case was easy to search and form that judgment. I would exclude cult, New Age, or other non-Christian messages, though this time there weren’t any submitted.

    I’m not in 100% agreement with the approach to Christianity in one or two of the posts above; but I don’t exclude posts for that, as long as I can see that it is Christianity they are approaching and not some other belief system.

  2. Thankyou so much for having my new website on you wonderful carnival and I am checking out the other great websites. May God bless you abundantly!
