Always a cheery topic. Consider it another morbid musing in a questionable mind, but my wife and I were reading a Psalm the other day and it briefly mentioned God's judgment, and I began to think. Quick note: I know many Christians don't believe in Hell. Jesus seemed to think it was real, as evidenced … Continue reading What is Hell?

Top 5 Things Wrong With Christian Music, Movies, and Books
It's that time of year when Christians ruin Christmas carols by adding in a bridge that completely clashes with the rest of the song, adds nothing of any real value, and basically tries to spice up linguistic gourmet with lyrical pop tarts. Seriously, how do you screw up "Joy to the World?" And who would … Continue reading Top 5 Things Wrong With Christian Music, Movies, and Books
It had been many years since I saw her, but her image floated in my memory, haunting me, though I didn't know why. Why was I troubled at work, at home, in bed, when I saw her face? Soon, I realized it was God, crafting this image out of the ashes of the past. And … Continue reading She Was…
I Judged the Judgers for Judging
It's only when I write a post that becomes my second-most-popular (this being my first, shameless plug) that I realize I've made a huge mistake. Two days ago, I wrote this post about Dayna Morales, the waitress who was stiffed a tip because she looked like a lesbian to the patrons, who included a note … Continue reading I Judged the Judgers for Judging

Maybe it was, maybe it's legit, the jury is still out as of this writing. But that wasn't the real reason I took it down. Many Christians … Continue reading Thanks, Christians!
Entitlement: The Freedom that Enslaves
It's absolutely everywhere anymore. School, work, church, home, the hospital, everywhere else, and all the lanes between. Don't think I'm some old geezer yapping about the current generation; I'm 25, right in the age group of a lot of movers and shakers today. And I absolutely cannot stand the overwhelming entitlement that has come to … Continue reading Entitlement: The Freedom that Enslaves
God, the Sponge
Back in the 90s, when everything was like so cool, there was a commercial for a sponge. It said that the sponge was tough on stains, and then the sponge turned into a lion head, which roared. Then, the commercial said it was gentle on skin/dishes, and the sponge became a little lamb that said "Baah." … Continue reading God, the Sponge
My Drug, My Apathy
Apathy comes to me as a Femme Fatale. Dark and alluring, coy and dangerous. I never invite her in; she's simply there when I walk through the door, lounging across the couch, ventilated light illuminated by the smoke of a long cigarette. She knows she gorgeous, waves of blonde hair cascading down her shoulders, a … Continue reading My Drug, My Apathy
