What is a blog feed?

After some months of publishing a blog, I thought I should write a brief explanation on how to subscribe to The Forerunner blog feed.

Most blogs have a feed of their content, sometimes known as an RSS or an ATOM feed.

You can use a stand-alone program to subscribe to feeds of websites you are interested in and read them in the program when you have some free time. One advantage of subscribing to blog feeds is that you can know when new content is added to your favorite websites.

Firefox and Internet Explorer have this functionality within the browser itself.

You can also use a web-based feedreader. For instance, if you have a Yahoo! account, you can add https://www.forerunner.com/atom/?section=blog to your RSS content and you will see something like this:

If you don’t have an RSS reader, go to: http://feeds.feedburner.com/forerunner and you’ll see something like this:

Then you should choose one of those little icons (called “chicklets”) under “subscribe now” and feedburner will add The Forerunner RSS feed to a personalized web page of your choice. You can add as many RSS feeds as you want to one web page, that way you can keep track new content on your favorrite web sites by just looking at one page.

You have already seen RSS feeds everywhere whether you realize it or not. This is how most news services add fresh content to their web sites on a daily basis. But did you know that you can easily publish your own blog for free and publish the content?

A QUICK PRIMER ON BLOGGING AND CREATING RSS FEEDS

Do you want to set up a blog in just a few minutes:

Go to: blogger.com and follow the directions. These are really easy!

Do you have a blog and need help adding RSS feeds to your blog?

That’s also easy and here is how you can do it:

Log into your blogger account

Go to “settings”

Go to “site feed”

Copy the “site feed url”

Then go to www.feedburner.com

Scroll down to where it says: “Ready to burn your feed? Type your feed or blog URL here” and paste your “site feed url” and then click “next.” You’ll be at “select services.” There are lots of options on that page and you can look through them all, but to get to the feeds you need to go to the bottom of that page and click on “next.”

Then you can log in or sign up. It’s free to sign up. After you fill in your info then click and that page will allow you to “activate your feed”. Click on that and then click on “launch your publicity tools” and then click on “chicklet chooser.” Then you have many options. I always choose “My Yahoo” and “XML.” Click on each one and you’ll see the code you need to copy and paste. You’ll have to do it for each one.

Then just go back to your blog template and paste it in the links section. You’re set. As you can see there are other different things you can do at feedburner.com. So look around and check them all out.

That is just the basics of getting a feed up. Now, when you get that feed added let me know so I can add you to my personal My.Yahoo page!

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Running time: 85 minutes

Packaged in a double DVD case with the updated The Abortion Matrix DVD.

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.
