10 Questions on Prayer with Tim Keller | Desiring God

Well hello again friends, my apologies for the prolonged absence.  Life has been crazy with work, school, family, etc. and I’ve kind of dropped the ball with writing.  Before getting into anything too big, I wanted to share with all of you a very encouraging interview I just read between two men that I highlyContinue reading “10 Questions on Prayer with Tim Keller | Desiring God”

Christ Pantokrator of Sinai, or God is Love/Justice

The portrait above is known as Christ Pantokrator of Sinai, also known as the Sinai Christ.  It was thought to have been commissioned by the Emperor Justinian for St. Catherine’s monestary.  I first saw this painting in university during a class on the history of Christianity, and it’s stuck with me ever since.  Now I’veContinue reading “Christ Pantokrator of Sinai, or God is Love/Justice”

Standing for Something, or You Are Not Alone

Do you ever feel like you’re just drifting along and when you finally speak up about what you see happening in the world those around you tell you to stop overreacting, or to be more tolerant?  If so, I want you to know that you are not alone. I’ve been feeling this way for sometimeContinue reading “Standing for Something, or You Are Not Alone”

Blogging Thru Song: Breaking Benjamin- Ashes of Eden

It’s been a while since we’ve had a song post, so here you go.  There’s not much for me to add to this one.  There have been times when I turned away from God to follow my own desires, a tale common within Western Christianity.  Allow this song to be an encouragement to you, especiallyContinue reading “Blogging Thru Song: Breaking Benjamin- Ashes of Eden”

A Note About the Global Zionist Conspiracy to Control Everything

Yesterday I was ambushed.  A gentleman who comes by my work everyday came in as always and ordered his coffee.  He’s a yankee from New York with a dominant personality so we chat but much of the conversation comes from his end, which is fine because I like to listen.  However, our usual dialogue aboutContinue reading “A Note About the Global Zionist Conspiracy to Control Everything”

Sweet Carolina, or What’s Making Charleston Different from Ferguson and Baltimore

I have no doubt that you’ve heard a lot about the events of the past week in Charleston, SC and the subsequent debate about the Confederate Battle Flag at the State House in Columbia.  The talking heads have yammered on about racist America and the hatred that is flows through every street since the TrayvonContinue reading “Sweet Carolina, or What’s Making Charleston Different from Ferguson and Baltimore”

A Comment on Bruce Jenner

I’m so tired of hearing about this and I was planning on ignoring the topic entirely, but I recently read an article from James over at the I 53:5 Project about the Christian response to it in which  I commented.  The comment got a bit lengthy and I thought I’d re-post it here. I seeContinue reading “A Comment on Bruce Jenner”

Video: A Thought on 21st Century Proselytizing

A good friend and I were having a conversation a few nights back and we somehow ended up on the topic of Christianity and proselytizing.  For anyone who doesn’t know, proselytizing is the act of trying to convert someone.  He isn’t a Christian and he’s been very open with me that Christians make him uncomfortable. Continue reading “Video: A Thought on 21st Century Proselytizing”

A Game of Thrones, or Pledging Allegiance to…

I’m not a fan of the Game of Thrones series.  I’ve never watched an episode but I read a little bit of the book and it wasn’t really my cup of tea.  Given that I’m not a fan, I think most people have heard about the outrage over the shows depicting the rape of oneContinue reading “A Game of Thrones, or Pledging Allegiance to…”

Left Wing/RightWing: A Christian Political Scientist’s Review of Modern Politics

I am a political junkie.  I am a student of political science and I watch the news far more often than I probably should, but I like knowing what’s going on and being able to engage in discussions that the power players are having.  That being said, I’ve recognized that for most Americans political speakContinue reading “Left Wing/RightWing: A Christian Political Scientist’s Review of Modern Politics”
