Is religious syncretism a good thing?

Most people don't realize it, but their religion is a blend of paganism and Christianity. Is that a good thing? Does it make any difference to God that at least part of one's beliefs and practices came from a pagan religion?

The "sin" of ingratitude

We've all had the unfortunate experience of doing something for someone and never hearing a simple "thank you" in return. It makes us feel sad, perhaps a little hurt or even a little angry, when we have really gone out of our way to help someone. We may think, "How dare they not appreciate what I did for them!" Google the words "un-thankfulness" or "ungrateful people" or "ingratitude" and you'll get hundreds of thousands to millions of results.

Apparently, it's all too common.

Are you well read?

Are you "well-read"? Have you read "the classics" by Plato, Homer, Chaucer—or books by famous authors like Austen, Bronte, Dickens, Hemingway, Shakespeare, etc.? Did you read the books on your high school summer reading list? Have you read the books listed in the New York Times best sellers list? What is the most important book you could read?
