Well, most of you probably already know about my meetup with fellow bloggers Alex and Brett Harris, and saw our one picture–but it seems others have gotten a hold of these (not including the National Scoop). It seems some small press got a hold of our photos, and has released them as “warnings” to people, telling them that we are …

Blogger Meetup

I was going to write something long, and did write something long, but it didn’t fit. I wanted to share with you some fun that I had last Friday. I got the privilege of meeting two good friends, and bloggers, whose names some of you may recognize: Alex and Brett Harris. We had a great dinner, and a great discussion …

Marriage is Not Something We Teach

Elkton, Maryland, is one of the most populated towns in the state. In the 20th Century, the large town had established a name for itself as am extremely popular marriage destination. Babe Ruth and Willie Mays, actors Burt Lahr and Joan Fontaine, basketball star Charles Barkley, and former US Attorney General John and Martha Mitchell, were all married in this …

Lost, Confused, And Blowing Things Up

So, all I did was manually restart the computer–and it decided to do a system check and delete all of my emails, my mom’s emails, and my dad’s emails–and the address book. So, what do I need you to do? First, download the latest Square Talk on Narnia…then fire me an email telling me that you’ve done that. In that …

Tasty Toxins: The Long Version

“‘Everything is permissible’–but not everything is beneficial. ‘Everything is permissible’–but not everything is constructive. Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.” –1 Corinthians 10:17 Quite an interesting verse in light of our recent discussion about consuming alcohol, the effects of it, and what the Scripture says about it. It’s a controversial topic–one I’m not afraid to …

Tasty Toxins?

The following is really not a fantastic defense of “abstinence” if you will, but rather a look at what the Bible says about alcohol, and the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of drinking. Enjoy. When I think of alcohol, nothing good or holy comes to mind. Instead, I think of smoky rooms, drunk men, totalled cars, shock trauma, broken lives, …

Your Checklist: Vote or Buy

UPDATE: Please vote only one time. If you want to get more votes in for me, then tell your friends, your mom, and your dog. But don’t vote twice. I reviewed the rules, and unlike other blog awards, in this one you cannot vote every day. With the extremely interesting interesting discussion going on in the Christmas post, I’ve been …

Who Cares About Christmas?

I wanted to address a very interesting comment I received from two readers. Now, we really do need to look at what they’re saying. It’s very interesting, and I commend her for bringing it up, and also adding that she did not want to start an argument. That is not what this post is about. It is to bring about …

Church Is: Closed

Today, we’re going to look at a story that, I’m sure, will be widespread across the blogosphere, but one that everyone needs to see and consider. Fox News Reports: This Christmas, no prayers will be said in several megachurches around the country. Even though the holiday falls this year on a Sunday, when churches normally host thousands for worship, pastors …

Coolness Redifined

Over and over again I am amazed at the amount of time I waste, as well as many others that I know. We’ve all wasted time–precious time. I’ve wondered so many times what the source of this wastefulness is, and have come to some conclusions. These conclusions, will challenge both of us in our sinful bodies as we fight the …
