Which Road Are You On? You Should Spend Some Time On “The Road to Edmond”

Which Road Are You On? You Should Spend Some Time On “The Road to Edmond” Just finished watching “The Road to Edmond.” It’s been over a decade since I’ve watched something that centers on telling a “Christian” story. I just don’t have time for stories with two-dimensional characters where the only “honest” people are the brave Christians who, in the end, have all the Bible-based … Continue reading Which Road Are You On?

The Day after The End and The Rest of Your Life

The Day after The End and The Rest of Your Life I stayed up way too late into Sunday morning messing around with my blogs, such that I completely forgot about the “Apocalypse” that had been getting so much buzz on the web.

In Bad Faith, Part 7: Entitlement

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? (Matthew 7:11 ASV) It shouldn’t be too surprising that in an era and place of unbridled abundance and wealth (that is the US in the 1970s and following) that these verses would be … Continue reading In Bad Faith, Part 7: Entitlement
