Character Study: Introduction

So it's kinda a play on words, because this series is going to be about the biblical characters found in the Bible, as well as their character, but now I’m getting ahead of myself.  Let me explain.

Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

1 Corinthians 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

Movie Review: Beastly

I was asked not to post this review on Reviews by People.  However, because it was a review much asked for, I am posting it here for you all.  The title says it all; this is a movie review on the very popular Beastly.

Beastly is a retelling of the classic story Beauty and the Beast, its trendy title not the only thing that has been modernized. There is an old adage that says the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. Not so in the world of Kyle Kingsbury. Kyle believes in the beauty of the flesh. He proudly declares from his student body president campaign podium "Beautiful people get it better, that's just the way it is."

Breadwinning Worship

Yes, I know I have had an extended absence from the blog.  Truth be told, things are crazy around here and you all know that my family comes first.  When they need me, I vanish for a bit.  But, in addition to all of that, this blog post has also taken a while to craft.  Why?  Well because, true to my normal self, I have put together another longwinded post. Please bear with me for always having too much to say on any given subject.

So, what is this longwinded subject?  Well, as some of you know, I’m a writer (soon to be published, if all goes well).  What some of you may not know is that being a writer has come with lots of complications, one of which is should I write on Sunday if it is a form of work (one in which I intend to be paid for), or should we even write at all on Sunday, even if it is not for pay?
