does it help to think of the question of "how much can i booze myself up, as a christian?" the same way as the question "how much skin on a girl who is not my wife is it ok to see?"

in the "christian" world, some dishonor God by their ignorance, and others by their arrogance. and both spite each other instead of repenting of such attitudes.
my gift to you on this christmas day, first, may the Lord fill your life with His grace and may He have mercy on your soul and grant you repentance and redeem your soul for His glory.. the greatest gift of all
second, a fun video:

merry CHRISTmas everyone!! who says we cannot celebrate two birthdays for the Savior of wretched sinners, the Messiah Immanuel who was born of a virgin to fulfill His promise to die as a ransom for His people over whom He is a wonderful counselor and Mighty God??
there is only one who is good, the rest of us are just tarnished mirrors poorly reflecting beams of His perfect Glory!! soli deo gloria!

something you might not have known about jack nicholson
Nicholsonís opinions on abortion were formed by personal experience. He was a grown man when he discovered the woman he thought was his sister was actually his mother, and the woman he knew as his mother was his grandmother. His mother became pregnant as a teenager and was encouraged to have an abortion, even back in 1937, but she chose life for her son. The revelation that his sister was his mom was understandably difficult for Nicholson, and had a profound affect on him. For one, it made him pro-life:wow, jack nicholson, pro-life.. never'd a thunk it (im reluctant to post the full article, but here it is: 5 male celebrities I support, and why I support them.. i dont know, ive been starting to notice that pro-life-ness is a bit like its own religion.. not cool.)
i officially (as of like last week) have a grey hair coming out of the smack middle of my mustache.. add to that the 3 or four in my beard (which doesnt even grow out full) and the almost 7 ive found on my head.. and im officially old now. the end.

in researching branding, etc, i ran into an article on red bull, which led to an article on the original drink red bull is based on (krating daeng), which led to my finding an article on a type of cattle, which led to another article on another type of extinct cattle, which led to this paragraph, and the reason for the post:
In the 1920s two German zoo directors (in Berlin and Munich), the brothers Heinz and Lutz Heck, began a selective breeding program in the attempt to breed back the aurochs into existence from the domestic cattle that were their descendants. Their plan was based on the concept that a species is not extinct as long as all its genes are still present in a living population.sort of throws a spin on evolution if you ask me..
ugh.. so michael moore sent one of his "attackers", who ran an anti-michael moore website, and who needed money for health care an "anonymous check" for the amount needed... AND THEN PUT IT IN HIS MOVIE!!!! gah!! what a jerk! holey! and the lefties eat this garbage up.. can you imagine? its like me sending someone an anonymous $200 (adjusted according to income, right?) check to someone who needs it, and then taking a billboard out stating the fact, and making the person look like a complete jerk to me. ON THE BILLBOARD. ugh. yeah so noble, michael

in openoffice.org (your free office suite), to keep a paragraph from splitting, click on it, and go to "Paragraph..." > "Text flow" and click on "Do not split paragraph"
to keep a newline as part of the paragraph, you want to do "shift + enter". also, you can insert a page break by doing "ctrl + enter". hope that helps
note to self: uajat unicornium, and vuvuzela during a choir recital.. yep. all things that seem to come up at church.

some pics to cheer us all up (some might contain odd internet inside jokes)
how to get into trouble 101: be me. the end.
i posted this as my status on my facebook profile:
i think one of the most valuable lessons that reformed theology has taught me over the last few years is compassion. knowing that there is absolutely no reason why God should save me, and that no moral action on my part could ever get me saved, reminds me that criticizing someone's morals and shoving mine down their throat will not save them either. as much as i value morality and wish to promote it, itll never lead to their salvation, only the Gospel is the power unto salvation. may i never forget this.this obviously prompted the haters to hate, and some guy using a fake name (who i somehow added some time ago.. ugh.. yeah, tell me about it) posted a public message on my wall about how i am a hypocrite, and that if i am soo compassionate, then why didnt i x,y and z.. and that i need to repent. he of course never said what it was i did, (x,y and z were just some strange reference to having compassion on his family while here.. ??) ugh. it doesnt end does it?
in any case, someone else posted only that they dont agree (not which part of that whole statement they didnt agree with) so i responded thusly:
yeah, its a work in progress, i know i have lots to work on in regards to my compassion. but im open to being told where i am failing. you shouldve seen me just a couple years ago.. that was pretty bad, and im still paying for it in the friendships i ruined as a result of my bad theologyand someone else posted this:
reform theology boxes God's compassion...(in my humble opinion). also, though we must rely on the Spirit, the body was purposed to be a light in the world. So our actions do matter a great deal. I agree with what you said about criticizing and shoving though. We are not to judge those outside the body - and even that is to be done through loving relationship.(ps, she also wrote that my original post were "good thoughts".. just letting you know) to which i wrote an essay of a response:
yeah, i was mostly referring to how i understand conversion, soteriology, and evangelism. as an arminian i used to believe that if i could just get someone to make a "decision" for Christ, that was it. and trust me, as you can see on TV and pretty much any arminian church service, getting someone to make a "decision" for Christ is actually quite easy. and then the next week these people are back in the mud. no conversion, no change.and i finally added this:
hmm.. i think this may be easily understood. so let me clarify, its not that i am claiming to be compassionate to any measurable means, but that a reformed understanding of salvation is daily teaching me to be _more_ compassionate. but not that i can in any way boast about being at any satisfactory level of compassion (if you read my earlier posts this would be clear.. but for the benefit of those who havent)though the week had a couple highlights.. lets mark this down as another bad week. not because of all this. but simply because what little bursts of joy i am able to get at certain points of the week do not really make up for the rest of it. exhaustion and my own failures (among a couple other things) are just weighing me down too much. and i cant even pray "take me now, Lord" because im not ready to go.. im not in a state where i can say "i am satisfied with how i have lived my life to this point, and with how much i have given to my Lord" at some point yeah, i did feel that way, years ago. but definitely not anymore. and this whole debacle that happened at the other church (have i ever blogged about what went down? i dont think i have) has just really drained me of energy and emotional capacity to deal with those people. and sometimes when i am confronted with a situation that reminds me of something that happened at that other place, i find myself starting to worry. even my wife sometimes wonders how soon it will be until we are kicked out of the one we are in now. hah. (that was a sad chuckle).

problems scanning with xsane after upgrade or (as in my case, as little sense as it might make) installing a new video card? well, try this solution (which incredibly worked for me):
yeah, no idea how a new video card would mess up the display in one window (in my case the preview window) in xsane, or how in the world it could be solveable by this, but there ya have it

doing what is evil reminds me that i am (still) evil, and that i am so desperately in need of His grace every single day.
"If there were no God, there would be no atheists."(yes, im awake already)

The Arminian Prayer by C.H. Spurgeonarminians, this is indeed where you theology leads.
no idea who said this, but i like:
"Gaining Knowledge Leads Towards Wisdom....but Sharing Knowledge Leads Towards Community."
awesome new linux command i just learned?
# dmidecodethis outputs all sorts of info regarding your motherboard, like what sockets it has, what features it supports, how much memory (RAM), and what type of memory is installed. oh yes, pretty amazing. and, if you do a
# dmidecode --type XXwhere XX is a number, it will output only the dmi information of that number type.. ie, ram has a dmi type of 17 (from the first command you can see what type of dmi each portion of information is) pretty awesome huh?
these are so much fun:

someone (atheist) asked for my opinion on the westboro baptist "church" people, here is my response:
i think they are a bunch of idiots who should spend more time studying their bibles than constantly trying to get attention for themselves. Jesus said "by their fruits you shall know them" and this is indeed the case with these guys. they are nothing more than a cult (like the jim jones club) denying the full counsel of God's Word in favor of cherry picking their favorite verses in order to express their skewed views.agh, i just realize i forgot to mention not just the forgiveness of God, but what it required for Him to forgive.. the death of Christ. ok, heres what i wrote:
of course, keeping in mind that to forgive us, it required that God's own Son take upon Himself the punishment we rightly deserved to pay the debt we owe.
and this is just awesome:
