The Theology of Election...Season

With the election behind us now, and as we look forward to--at the very least--four years of something different than we're used to... I thought it would be good to realign our thoughts and hearts a little bit.

What's Your Platform?

I believe in honesty.  I believe we, as brothers and sisters in Christ, should be open about our struggles, our fears, our doubts...about things that trouble us.  We're all in this life - this Faith - together, and we in the universal Church of Christ are our own support system.  So, I'm just going to share some thoughts and emotions that got shaken loose over the past couple days, in hopes that you all can take something I'm tossing out there and learn or grow from it.

A Lighthearted Discussion on the Necessity of a Divine Creator - Part Four


Like a million years ago, in Part Three of this series (One, Two), I promised that next time (this time) we'd explore the word 'nothing' and see if we couldn't figure out what it's all about. It's actually not all that complicated, but happens to be so simple that it's very easy to get confused thinking about it, expecting it to be more complex than it actually is and getting lost in an infinite thought loop.

No one wants that for you, so, allow me to make good on my promise.

RPG's, JC, and You and Me

Welcome, welcome. Please come inside and make yourself at home.

Hey! Not that at home! Weirdo. Now, if you'll kindly pull your hand out of my last jar of mayonnaise, we can get started.

This is part one of my short series exploring the possibility that maybe, juuuust maybe, tabletop roleplaying games aren't the insidious machinations of the Dark One after all, and that there may even be some usefulness in playing them with family and friends, just so long as no one actually conjures up real evil spirits and the like. For the intro (which you will probably need to read first) click here, here or here.

RPGs, JC, and You and Me - Intro

Disclaimer: Most of my posts frustrate and anger NON-Christians in varying degrees - not by design, but simply by the nature of the content and my personal beliefs - but this entry will likely ruffle some Christian feathers. My advice, going into this, is to try and open your mind, and realize that there's actually stuff out there you don't know yet.

Without further adon't...

Hey! Remember back in the 80's when ignorant church-goers all over the nation began, almost simultaneously, to scowl and point their accusing fingers at a little game called Dungeons & Dragons (D&D for those in the know), declaring it to be satanic, and the singular cause of depressed and otherwise mentally-troubled young men offing themselves?

Yeah, me too.

A Lighthearted Discussion on the Necessity of a Divine Creator - Part Three

Wow, I have to say, I am genuinely surprised to see you here. I feel like that last entry was kind of like blog-reader kryptonite, but hey! I'm glad you came back. Let's hope I have something interesting and/or informative for you to read. If not, blame Obama.

A Lighthearted Discussion on the Necessity of a Divine Creator - Part Two

This is part two in our lighthearted discussion on the necessity of a divine creator. For part one, click here.

So, we’re going with ‘nothing exploded, which brought everything (the sum total of mass and energy within our universe) into existence.’ Alright, if you say so.
