Top Ten Curious Cat Questions

It is nearly a month since I took a break from Curious Cat. Out of my own curiosity, I just checked my blog hits to see which of my Curious Cat questions received the most traffic from this site. Obviously, this is far from the most accurate way of measuring the popularity of particular questions, but I do find it interesting to see which of my answers especially interested my readers. The results aren’t especially surprising, but I don’t think any of them would make a list of my favourite questions and answers. Just for fun, here they are in reverse order:

Number 10

How do you feel about utilizing term “gospel-centered” as an adjective (gospel-centered marriage, life, church, parenting, sex, finances, etc.)? This strikes me as a relatively new phenomenon (gaining traction in the past 10-15 years), particularly within American evangelicalism, and I wonder how constructive it actually is. I fear that it is often an anaemic usage of the term “gospel.” [Answer]

Number 9

Romans 9 says God created some to do evil (‘vessels of wrath fitted for destruction’) so they’ll just end up going to hell. This happened to Esau, whom God hated even before he was born. [Answer]

Number 8

Do you think Jesus cleansed the temple twice? [Answer]

Number 7

Why do gay people ‘look’ gay? (Serious question I’ve always had, reminded of it by the recent face scanning article) [Answer]

Number 6

Is onanism a sin? [Answer]

Number 5

Both Yoder and Barth have been shown to be guilty of sexual sin (and I might add Yoder did his Phd under Barth). Should this alter our reading of them and if yes are we not hypocrites for letting Luther off with his racism towards Jews? [Answer]

Number 4

Can you define patriarchy and if/how it differs from complementarianism? [Answer]

Number 3

Why are you an Anglican? [Answer]

Number 2

What were you impressions on the different parts of the US. Were some regions weirder than others? To which do you plan to eventually move? [Answer]

Number 1

Why are you Anglican rather than Presbyterian? [Answer]

Clearly, people are VERY interested in why I am an Anglican!
