unapproachablelight replied to your post: Oh Canada… Honestly I think a team should just be composed of the best athletes. I should hope that there be more browns and yellows but I wouldn’t want the equivalent of affirmative action in sports just so they get a roster spot. Agreed! However, I wonder why there are not opportunities for yellow and brown Americans to be best athletes in this...
as much as i dislike the country (LOL), i will say i appreciate how their Olympic team is so much more diverse than ours (so much for melting pot eh America?) a handful of yellows and browns doesn’t equal diversity…a;slkdjfa;sldjkfa now that that’s out of the way…Go team USA!

jspark3000: Anonymous asked: I’m wondering how you can know if a church isn’t right for you or not. While I don’t want to paint this into a formula, I understand both extremes we swing to when it comes to our home-church.

It's nice having something to do.
stayeducated: I think one of the differences as you grow older is the bridging of purpose and action. These young kids remind me a lot of myself. Just drifting through life and being swept around by every breeze. Yet I look at the more mature people in my life and see a conviction that is reflected in their lives and actions.

Still Running: Social Media and Christianity →
thepoorinspirit: One of the downfalls of social media, especially in the realm of Twitter and Tumblr, is that the short nice-sounding quotes, sayings and bits are the ones that are going to be retweeted/reblogged/reposted. While I don’t want to downplay the powerful truths these… Bam!
bsparky replied to your post:In light of my recent post, I’ve been thinking a… For me, The Bible and my faith are actually very logical. I agree that they are ignorant and what they say shouldn’t waver our belief, but there is also a way to logically explain things like this. I think it’s easier for believers to say that the Bible and our faith has a logical aspect to it, because...

Hip Hop and the Fight Against Sin

In light of my recent post, I’ve been thinking a lot about non-Christians and the type of stuff they say/post to try to disprove/invalidate God and how powerful he is. They take scripture (esp. Leviticus) out of context and try to show how irrelevant it is. Or they take a biased scientific argument to try to show how God couldn’t have created it. I mean really the list goes on and on....
Father of Lights
thoughts thoughts thoughts… It was interesting to say the least. I wasn’t really sure what to expect about the movie, because I wasn’t really sure what it was about, except to see God in a way that shows his heart for the world. You will see the impossible, and you will be changed forever. Did I walk away changed forever? Well, maybe not, but it’s not to say that this...
