Most of us say we’re followers of Jesus- but have you considered that you may be nothing more than a fan? In the book Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus by teaching pastor Kyle Idleman, the issue of fan vs follower is discussed in detail. Idleman uses the analogy of a sports fan or someone who idols a celebrity and then challenges us to look at our personal relationship with Jesus.
Banned Books: The Nazis and the Catholic Church were and are not the only ones to ban books. Currently the State Board of Education bans several. Ray Bradbury's "Farenheit 451" is a tale of a society banning books. It and the books on this list are all worth reading. The ability to publish them is freedom of speech.
