Why am I a Democrat? I was asked about this two weeks ago. The honest to God answer is that it’s political. I’d rather be independent but then I would have to forego voting in the primaries, and that’s not something I want to do. I could go third party but, frankly, that’d be the… Continue reading Why I Am a Democrat
Not too long ago, I’ve shared some of the struggles my wife and I have been going through, specifically with infertility. For about two long years, we’ve been trying to get pregnant. For over a year, Sarah has been to the doctor countless times, going through different testings and medications. After our miscarriage several months… Continue reading A Daddy to Be
Maybe Christians should talk about practicing safe sex. I’m all for abstinence, I really am, and I believe that sex should be reserved for marriage. Not only do I believe it to be a Biblical mandate, I believe it would save anyone psychological and emotional heartache. However, I’m not naive to think that every kid… Continue reading Condoms
(Okay, I dub this uncensored for two reasons: One, I’m blunt and candid about what I think; Two, the thoughts I share are not absolute, meaning once they’re further processed in my puny brain, they will undergo deconstruction and correction. Facts, fiction, biases, opinions, truth, deception are for the moment blurred.) On ChurchI’ve read some… Continue reading Uncensored Thoughts on Church, Politics and Life
What do most conservative Protestants mean when they say the Bible is authoritative? Clearly not everything is authoritative, depending on whether it falls under the Old or New Covenant. There are things they follow and don’t follow in Scriptures. Then again, one would have to initially arrive to a comprehensible definition of authoritative before applying… Continue reading Bible: Authoritative or Not?
I’ve been a bit busy lately. For three weeks now, I’ve been holding down a full-time and part-time job. From 8:15 AM to 12:15 PM, I’m a designer for an internet marketing firm in Lancaster, PA. From 2 PM to 11 PM, I’m a warehouse associate for MSC, an industrial supply distributor in Jonestown, PA.… Continue reading Gone for 16 Hours
[Below is something I wrote in my sketchbook back in the winter] The world has gone mad! I’m sitting here enjoying DQ’s Moolatte in a 70°F home and 20°F weather outside. This coffee flavored frozen beverage has approximately 700 calories! But this isn’t why the world has gone mad. As I savor each and every… Continue reading Moolattes and The Kingdom of God
This has been a rough year for my wife and I. For almost half a year I have not been employed. I’ve worked little jobs here and there but certainly was not enough to make ends meet. Needless to say, we’ve accumulated many bills. Finding a part-time job has proved to be difficult. Employers rarely… Continue reading A Difficult Journey
Perhaps God does not find favor with me. He loves me, at least that’s what I’m told. But He need not like me. Why should He? If anything else I probably annoy Him. I question His existence, wonder whether or not the Bible carries His Word, think twice about the claims of Jesus’ divinity. And… Continue reading Does God Like Me? Probably Not.
I’m not necessarily keen on the doctrine of the Trinity. Why should I be? Just because a group of Christian elitists condemned its alternatives as heresy does not mean it is absolute truth. The concept of the Trinity, like all its alternatives, is an interpretive attempt to understanding the mysteries of the gospel as humanly… Continue reading I’m a Modalist, Sebellianist, Whatever You Wanna Call It
