What will it take, to make us get this excited about being a Christian? . . . Continue reading

What Does it Mean to be Christian?

What does it mean to be Christian?

Go to church on Sunday? sing some songs? eat some bread, drink some juice? listen to some old guy give a boring speech? watch someone take a bath?

What does it mean to be Christian?

. . . Christian, when you hear that word, what do you think of? A churchgoer? Bible Thumper? some arrogant, judgmental jerk who’s ‘holier than thou’? a rapist priest? the Pope? some strict Puritan? a crusader? a witch hunter?

Are YOU Ready for the Zombie Apocalypse?

It’s October, which means that it’s “Zombie Awareness Month.” So the question is, ‘Are you ready for the Zombie Apocalypse?’ If the answer is no, then I’m doing my civic duty by helping you be ready. Here is a list of ten ways to prepare yourself for this upcoming disaster:

Food, water, first aid kits, flashlights, batteries, TOILET PAPER—any necessity that you will need an abundance of. (Shampoo and deodorant are optional.) And of course—Weapons! Lots and lots of weapons: machetes, baseball bats, crowbars, shovels, sledgehammers, hedge trimmers, (anything really that you can use to kill a zombie), and guns—big guns, little guns, guns-guns-guns! And BULLETS! Lots and lots of bullets! Continue reading


7“The world has changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air.”—Galadriel.

The world is constantly changing. Spring comes, bringing new life and green. Summer arrives, and so does the heat, and the coolness of swimming. Fall announces the new school year, as winter brings sleep and death.

Heck, you’re not the same person who you were yesterday. Life, what we see and experience, is constantly shaping us. Evolving our personality, how we think, and our person. But how we allow life to shape us is completely and utterly up to you. One can see a tragedy as an opportunity to share hope, while another may use it to drown in self-pity. Continue reading

If Life was a Video Game


What if life was a video game?! . . . Both a scary and an exciting thought. The pros: instead of experiencing Hyrule through a screen, you would actually be a part of it! Instead of pressing a button to kill a zombie, you would pull a trigger. If you needed money, just run through a level—collecting all the gold coins that you can grab, or go mow the lawn and catch the rupees that come flying out! When you boast about the latest raid, or wiping out the enemies’ nexus, you would have ultimate bragging rights, because you were actually on the battlefield. And no one would be able to call you a nerd!

But what are the cons if video games were our reality? Well, you would actually have to know how to play a guitar for Guitar Hero, and banana peels would be a lot more dangerous. Seriously though, there are several reasons why life is life, instead of a video game: Continue reading
