Not only is The Dragon Prince awesome, but it can teach Christians how to write morals in their stories.
Vote Republican? Vote Democrat? Better question: why should the Christian have to choose?
"If God is real, it is your job to prove it to me." Those were the words of a former friend who fled the faith like a house fire. He said that, if God and the Christian doctrine were real, then as a believer, it was my job to prove it. I did not respond. … Continue reading You Don’t Have to Prove Christianity to Anybody
Something went wrong, something's been lost, something has died. What now?
I did a sundown fast today (no food until dinnertime—except tea, because if you fall asleep while fasting then it doesn’t count and your boss fires you) and while praying, I asked God how our relationship could be better. Jesus says this is the most important aspect of our walk in John 15:5. He’s the … Continue reading A Funny Thing Happened While Praying…

I have never liked “Good Good Father.” It’s main chorus is juvenile and repetitive, and the second stanza of “And I’m loved by you, it’s who I am…” is a grammatical eyesore. Loved is WHAT you are, not who. Your name is not Loved By You.

Did you see the film God’s Not Dead 2? I didn’t, because I watch enough bad movies by accident, I don’t need to do it on purpose. It was widely panned as Right-Winged propaganda, and from the clips I’ve seen, yeah, that’s pretty true. But you want to know something weird?
