Taking the Plunge

Once you've accepted Jesus into your heart, your next step is showing your obedience and symbolizing your rebirth through baptism.  The Christian denominations in which I grew up believed that baptism was only valid as a personal decision.  Some denominations practice infant baptism or sprinkling, but in the context of what I was taught that practice seems to have no significance whatsoever (except to…

Repeat After Me

Getting saved through Jesus Christ and receiving the Holy Spirit sounds like it would be a really big deal.  I mean, the sheer mechanics of opening up one's heart and having the Holy Spirit move in like a college kid moving into the dorms is difficult to wrap your head around.  Oddly enough, Christians seem to think it requires nothing more than the ability to repeat phrases told to you by another person.  This applies mainly to children who are too young to formulate a sentence based on the…

Born Christian?

I was indoctrinated into Protestant Christianity from birth and accepted Jesus as my Lord and savior at the ripe old age of four.  I don't remember much about my childhood but I still remember that evening and the place of worship in Panama we called "The Home."  It wasn't a formal church and I imagine it was more like what you would have seen in the Apostle Paul's day where believers gathered in homes to praise god together through song and prayer.

The Home was situated either…

Salvation

I was three years old when I asked Jesus to come into my heart. Kneeling beside my grandmother's bed, my cousin Jarrod's hand in mine, we bowed our heads and asked for salvation. Of course, I worried that it didn't stick. I "rededicated" myself to God at age 5, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 19. I was 6 the first time I led someone to Christ, a little 4 year old girl who was attending the same "Fall Festival" party at a church that I was. I tried to convert gay friends in high school, by telling them that… Continue

Terminator Salvation: I Bet You Can't Find The Plot Through All The Explosions



Terminator Salvation is a pre-sequel (or is it a se-prequel) to the previous three movies in the Terminator series. Atrocious writing, shoddy effects and lackluster acting made me wonder why they bothered to make Terminator Salvation at all.



Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) is recruited by Dr. Serena Kogan (Helena Bonham Carter) while on death row to be part of a mysterious experiment. Years later, Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) and Star… Continue

The Path Of My Salvation? (Door to door story from my days as one of Jehovah's Witnesses)

The Path Of My Salvation?

I was cold, tired, and hungry, but most of all I needed to take a piss. I had been preaching from door to door all morning long. The day was dragging on.



Fueled by too much coffee, I was in rare form. My sermons at my neighbor's doorsteps grew increasingly urgent as my bladder expanded. Oh, the urgency of God's message!



I had one house left on my assigned side of the street, and no Watchtowers left in my bag. I ran back to the car to restock.… Continue

A Vacation Treasure (Religious Tract)

I was on vacation in Mexico last week at a great all-inclusive resort near Cozumel. During one visit to the restroom, I found a religious tract sitting on top of the urinal (clean and resting against the wall... not soaked!). I grab them whenever I find 'em because they're usually entertaining. I made a blog post about the whole thing on my site if you're interested in the amusement. :-)…

Jesus my Savior

This morning, as I was walking home, at the far end of the street the most amazing cloud of smog I've ever seen caught my attention. It didn't rise and dissolve itself in the atmosphere but instead seemed to be revolving madly upon itself, as if it were inside an invisible giant blender. Curiosity piqued, I kept walking towards it, thoughts absorbed in examining the details of this bizarre atmospheric phenomenon.



The cloud was just a few feet above the ground but it was far too small… Continue
