Just How Sinful Were Your Prices?

epic-fail-jesus-died-failPic From Fail Blog

For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.” 1 Peter 3:18

Let me check that again. Christ died so that I could be in a relationship with God. Does it mention supermarket prices anywhere? Did Christ die for consumer gain? Nope, didn’t think so.

Bad form Safeway. Bad form.

I Want V Now!

V-International-images-v-on-abc-8902160-1450-984_01Why are you doing this to us Channel 9? Why are you holding back on showing V. You know I want to watch it. Is that the reason? Are you going to pull a Pushing Daisies and promise that you’ll show it and then bury it?

By the sounds of things, V is going to be very, very good.

The original had a great take on fascism. It looks like the new version will also be including some religious themes and characters which has, of course, grabbed my attention.

Internet Church

800px-Science_museum_025_adjustedThe idea of an online church has been around for as long as the internet. This online church in Indiana has been getting 60,000 unique hits a week. Has any ever checked this out (or a similar online church community)? What’s the difference between this and downloading a preacher’s podcast each week? Is it able to move beyond being something you watch and become something you engage with? Church is not just something you witness each Sunday. It’s something you actively experience and engage with as you work together to build the body of Christ. This is the biggest challenge I see for online churches.

And would buying up Google search words like “Sex” and redirecting people to your internet church really be helpful? I can see a lot of people getting mighty frustrated and angry at the church for that.

You wouldn’t either if you found out your parents sold your soul to the Devil. Now it’s time to pay up. Sam will have to juggle his day job working at a hardware store with his new job as the Devil’s bounty hunter, capturing super-powered souls escaped from hell. Life isn’t easy on Reaper.

Wicked: The Musical

wicked0606Is someone born wicked, or is wickedness thrust upon them? Is wickedness a result of your actions? Is it part of your nature? Or is it something you are called purely because you are different? The bad guy in The Wizard of Oz was the Wicked Witch of the West. Why was she called the Wicked Witch? Was she really wicked? Or is there something that we’re not being told? The hit stage musical Wicked takes us back to the beginning to show us that not everything is as it seems in the magical land of Oz.
