WHO IS GOD, ANYWAY? December 1, 2009

I received a copy of “The Shack”. I was told it is a good Christian novel. Since it had been so long since I’d read a novel, I thought I’d give it a shot. Ever since, I’ve wanted to write my thoughts on this controversial book. But I could never make up my mind if I should be diplomatic or go with my gut and spill political incorrectness!

If you read the book and liked it, please do not be offended by this post. Rather, I encourage you to return to your foundation (if you are a Christian) of why you believe what you do about God. If “The Shack” were truly SOLELY a fiction novel, fine. Unfortunately, many are using it as an allegory of the Trinity and as a source for theological explanation of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

Who is God, anyway? What does the BIBLE say?
Or do I just believe whatever makes me feel better?

Here’s a very short video from one of my theological heroes of today. He doesn’t mention every point needing addressing (such as God becoming human through Jesus (not in the Biblical sense); Jesus using all religions to lead people to the Father, etc.), but definitely the most important.

Stinky Feet & Head Cheese August 21, 2009

I’m changing up my blog a bit. There have been a lot of changes in the last year, I’ve had to focus on other stuff for a while, and now, I’m back. For now, I’ll continue to use WordPress as my blog host and link Vlogs to You Tube. I’m also in the process of creating a German/English blog/vlog called “SPARKS”.

There are so many things I encounter on a daily basis to which I wish I had the answer in the moment. Know that feeling? Brandon & I often have the most awesome conversations (I’m not ashamed of saying that 🙂 ). And later, I wish I had recorded it. So, for both reasons, I will be carrying a video camera around with me just about everywhere. I want to capture the moment, the momentum, and the “revelation” and share it with you – A SPARK… JUST TO GET YOU THINKING… and hopefully doing.

Here’s my first attempt at “vlogging” (not flogging) – unedited, which is how I’d like to keep it – just plain real (even though I don’t like the way I look on camera).
