Anger - Seven Deadly Relational Sins November 27, 2009 has made a comment on Over all I rather like most of this message. I think it woudl be important for you to check out how Jews feel about the saying "eye for an eye". I think you will find that in Hebrew and in the correct context, that it does not mean what most people think it means. There is quit a bit of evidence that this revenge/retribution is not at all what it was meant to communicate.
It is very difficult to translate non linear Hebrew into simple linear English.
Regina Spektor - laughing with God November 20, 2009 Pastor: you have it so wrong. Regina is not talking about other people and what they should believe. Listen carefully. She (and I) are, btw, not followers of Jesus, but Jewish.
God's take on the Sub-prime Mortgage Crisis November 17, 2009 The whole thing is unscrupulous. Not as unscrupulous as the Tojo that did this number. Leave it to a stupid half witted sin saturated Toyota line worker. To come up with something like this. Games up Index toe to long for soccer. Go crash your paper airplane into a ship.
World of Warcraft - Interview with a guild master November 14, 2009 I was a GM also in a guild i made from ground up until around 1000 members but its not that cool when you are in it more than 3 months. Its really time comsuming and people want you to make their game "better" and all that... Its not that hard to create a guild, run a guild or close a guild. NOT LIKE A REAL TIME COMPANY :D
World of Warcraft - Interview with a guild master November 14, 2009 WOW is not fun if you dont commit yourself at all to it.. If you commit 80% its going to be "80% fun" . Its like football, if you dont care about football at all how many hours would you spent on a football field playing with the football? I would go home after 15 mins or so because i dont care shit about football in generel.. World of warcraft and games as a whole i care about because they give you a feeling, the feeling can and are diffirent from person to person . Wow or football? :D

Wow, I was hoping if I left this a few days someone might comment...
I guess not!
The main thing I get out of her song (which is probably the most obvious
thing) is the idea that when life is peachy keen we don't need God, and so
the idea of a creator and saviour is laughable. I mean, who needs God when
you've got more money than you need, a perfect house, delicious food, and
all the fun you can handle? It's like the man who stored up all the food in
his barns and thought "I've got it made." In our affluence it is easy to feel
like we're in control and that we can handle anything.
Of course when things go wrong it's like the floor falls out and people
wonder what they've done to deserve it. All of a sudden they HOPE they're
not in control, because they have no idea how to fix it. That's when the idea
of God maybe isn't so laughable or unneeded. All of a sudden it's like
"Somebody save me!" Of course when things go well again it's just as easy
to forget the one that helped you out. You can convince yourself it was
But back to the guy that built up his barn... we can't forget that God said,
"You FOOL! Tonight you die, and then what will become of your wealth?"
That line makes me think of "we're laughing with God." Maybe we think
we're laughing at him, but ultimately he is in control and maybe he is
laughing with us because of our ignorance. Not that I think he would take
pleasure in our suffering or ignorance, it's more the meaning behind the
words than the literal interpretation.
It's easy to believe there is no God when you walk through life meeting all of
your own needs and feeling like you're the center of the universe. Maybe
another Galileo needs to come along and say, "Um, actually, you're not in
the centre. You're just a part of a huge galaxy."
Again, this seems to be the very base, surface meaning of the song, but that
is what hit me about it first, so I thought I'd share since no one else did. I
know there are probably a lot deeper interpretations out there and I hope
someone posts one or two!

Coldplay - knowing God October 08, 2009 Coldplay is my favorite band :) and this actually made a lot of sense to me. I'm not all that religious but I like the explanation of good songs and poetry just floating around there waiting for us to catch it. I thoroughly enjoyed this :).
Anger and Metallica October 01, 2009 so as a christian myslef, is it ok to listen to some of metallica's music?
Oct. 3, 2009
Seeing your comment I guess the first thing I would ask is if you really like Metallica? The point of the message is to be able to hear and resonate with God's good truth in all that you do in your life. If you love Metallica and it helps you reveal that truth, well, then go for it!

Re: Listening to Metallica
Thanks for your reply. When i listnen to music, i dont go for the lyrics, i go for the instumentals. i love the band for their instrumentals. Yes im aware that the lyrics do talk about some powerfull stuff. But their abilty to compose great music is my favorite part of Metallica. And now i see what you were trying to get through in your message. Thanks, and God bless =)
