The Day Metallica Came to Church - Ufonic Interview June 27, 2014 It's so refreshing that this wasn't another person bashing Metallica (or rock/metal in general). Regardless of your opinion on Christianity, Metallica, or this pastor's motives, it's pretty awesome that he at least finds positives in two things that have, historically, been opposed to each other. Christians need to be more like this guy. Try to find God in everything rather than inserting Satan (I'm looking at you, WBC!). Kudos to this guy. Chris Caccamise (via YouTube)
The Day Metallica Came to Church - Ufonic Interview June 26, 2014 yeah...keep going, tell us about my friend of misery, where JAmes clearly attacks preachers for being hypocritically-egoistically full of shit,and who lift themselves up by feeling more holier than thou, or about the God that failed, or about the young boy in Unforgiven, did I not "include everyooooooone-AH!"? Please.... maybe in a few decades Metallica will get softer and get into christian rock....but not now. kvlo1986 (via YouTube)
World of Warcraft - Interview with a guild master June 15, 2014 I can honestly say I can quit wow at any time. I started working a retail job that my hours varied everyday. I quit playing due to those hours for the job. Once I found a better paying job that was normal hours I started playing again but the game does not take over my time for the job. I do also spend quite a bit of time with friends. I am a normal raider and am a top officer for a guild. Yes the game is addictive to many people but not everyone. a lot of good can actually come out of this game though for example it taught my little brother to read better and understand what he was reading. he always wanted help on quest or gear or anything such forth and I told him to read and figure it out. Also taught him how to research and find the answers on his own. Even better like stated in the video running a guild is a lot like running a business. That's experience almost anyone could use for anything. lifeslegund6 (via YouYube)
The Day Metallica Came to Church - Ufonic Interview June 08, 2014 It's true God's judgment against Egypt was fierce but then the murder of the Hebrew babies was a horrible crime. God did give people a way out. Put blood on your door posts and lentil. The Pharaoh never gave the baby Hebrews a way out. Apokiliptik Mentor (via You Tube)

God's Goodness in Investment Banking May 25, 2014 I know you said this quite some time ago but in light of recent swindles; LIBOR rate fixing, HSBC laundering drug money, mortgage fraud, etc. you must feel pretty silly now. God is kind of like an investment banker, his name has been used to ripoff humanity for hundreds of years :-). The Catholic Church is probably still the richest organization on the planet and caused humanity a lot of grief getting there. zklarer (via YouTube|)
God at Work: An Electrician May 23, 2014 Electricians are called as god during electrical works because electricity can cause severe hazards so it is very necessary that you should use good electrical equipments to avoid the accidents. Electricians are experienced and are experts in handling any electrical works so you should always hire electricians before doing any electrical work by your own. And also whatever electricians you are hiring should be licensed and experienced.
Geophysics and the Ground of all Being May 16, 2014 Could you help me answer these questions from my flat earth wacko friend:
People that are living in the Rochester area. can see the Toronto skyline, the tower and buildings on a clear day. The distance is approx.100 miles with the declination at 6,600 feet. In essence I am standing on one side of a 6,600 foot hill that is shaped like the curve of earth can I see buildings on the other side 100 miles away? Is that possible ? What is the difference between standing on the seashore at a 6,600 declination at 100 miles and a hill that is 6,600 feet tall? In both cases I have a 6,600 hill or curve of the earth to see objects that far away. I am wrong? Is it refraction? Let me know your thoughts. I have looked into refraction (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_refraction.) but that involves the sun at sunset, sunrise and atmospheric conditions. In terrestrial refraction the line of sight variance is 8% + or - , depending on conditions near the surface of the water. Let me know what you thoughts are. Also, I live in So Cal and on a clear early morning as I stand on the shore I can see the coastal lights of Catalina. And with my telescope I can see boat movements near Avalon and people playing and walking on the shoreline. It is approx. 30 miles away. The declination is approx. 600 feet. Why is it that I see the coastal lights and movements? Shouldn't the approx 600 feet of declination prevent me from seeing the lights? Is the light and image bending / refracting? Is it an optical illusion? I don't know the answer, could you help explain those questions. Charles Gordon (via YouTube)
The Day Metallica Came to Church - Ufonic Interview May 14, 2014 Those that dont understand that the Catholic Church was a government created entity and is by no means CHRISTIAN, and fail to see that religion is man-made, will never open their eyes and ears enough Dave Suchy (via YouTube)
The Day Metallica Came to Church - Ufonic Interview April 24, 2014 Preaching a Gospel of forgiveness is like preaching a Gospel of tolerance. Christ forgave and I am not denying that whatsoever. Only God (who everyone now hates because He is viewed as casual or a bad-tempered being in everyones eyes) HE can only offer forgiveness of sins through belief in His Son Jesus Chris who is perfect. And that is through Jesus Christ's resurrection on the the cross; Him being raised from the dead by HIs Father God and He conquered death as a perfect man and God, while He was on this earth with God raising Him to glory. My Jesus suffered more than I could ever do for any specific reason I wanted to do. He did it for all of us without complaining and love for us dirty filthy sinners. (I mean this to make a point my Lord) , but this powerful spirit of God, being Jesus Christ will soon come back laying to waste the people that spit in His face at the time of His death. When He comes back soon He comes a conquerer. He will be the opposite (weakling) that you say He was during the Bible. He will make you tremble on your knees. Trust Me children of this world; Christ Loves you but you have turned your back on Him. (Yeah, Im a nut job as you say and am proud of it). Just give it a few years. He is coming.
RUSH: Humanist philosophers & God's prophets April 23, 2014 Obviously Rush nor any of its members are Christians. They most identify themselves as atheist or at best agnostic. While many of us can identify with being a misfit (Even those who ran with the in crowd can relate to not feeling like they fit) and the call to nonconformity resonates this can be taken in the wrong direction. We are called to nonconformity to the world but we are also called to a renewing of our mind and a transformation. In other words we are to conform to the image of Christ. So nonconformity to the world is only half way there. If we exchange the worlds ways or the mainstreams way in order to take hold of our way we are equally lost. But only when we embrace Christ and His way do we find a love that saves us. Doing life our way is rebellion to God and is a sin being stubborn or set in our own way is idolatry according to 1 Samuel. It is setting ourselves up as god. Not any different than Satan himself. I appreciate the talent of the band and can relate to much of the emotion they reflect however to call them "God's prophets" seems a stretch. They are lost and anyone who embraces their religious view of atheism or agnosticism are being lead astray just in a less obvious way than Black Sabbath. But deception is deception.
God, Infinity and Mathematics April 21, 2014 No one can really fully comprehend infinity, however many people do have a better understanding. When you have real good understanding it becomes even more fascinating and a thousand times more frustrating to even wrap your head around it. Infinity is more perplexing than the universe itself.
The Story behind the Book - "The Day Metallica Came to Church" April 08, 2014 What this gentleman doesn't realize is what church actually means. God did not leave us a book, he left us a church; a teaching office. Who's charter is to save souls and make us holy. The first day of the visible church was on Pentecost when the Holy Spirit descended and to dwell with us (as God promised) and the preaching of Saint Peter and the Apostles. The completed Canon was produced by this church and not available until the fourth century. The bible is not necessary for salvation. The sacraments are. Christs' act on the cross is a once and for all sacrifice, but the fruits of this still have to be applied to each of our lives. This act allowed the opportunity for salvation, but did not guarantee it, simply by believing. We need to cooperate with his graces via the Holy Spirit, which resides in HIS church. There is only one church, one faith and one baptism. "Father, my they all be one, just as you and I are one." 33,000 denominations is not unity. The Church established on Peter is a the blueprint for salvation. One that a loving God left us as a touchstone back to him. Rather than leaving us to our own devices to guess what he wants from us and how to love him in return. "If you love me, you will keep my commandments". The greatest of these is to receive him in Holy Eucharist (account in John, Chapter six). manguy2000 (via You Tube)
