chain LinkIt’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything to this blog. I’ve been busy with a lot of things this past year, and I haven’t made the time in my schedule to continue blogging. I do miss it, though, and I’ve been constantly seeing things that I would like to put on here–thus this post.

There’s a lot of good music, and there’s a lot of bad music. There’s a lot of  bad music with good ideologies behind it, and there’s a lot of good music with bad ideologies behind it.

Take The Beatles, for instance. John Lennon and Paul McCartney were prolific songwriters, pumping out top-notch songs such as “Hey Jude” and “Eleanor Rigby” (fantastic strings in that one!), with George Harrison adding a number of hits as well, such as “Here Comes The Sun” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” (more…)

Holy BibleMankind has a habit.

Mankind has had this habit ever since the Fall.

This habit never fails to cause destruction when indulged, whether out of simple-mindedness, selfishness, or an overreaching attempt to grasp wisdom.

What is this habit? It is corrupting that which is naturally found.

chain LinkJust last night, I heard about an incident that happened this past Friday. I didn’t know anything about it, so I decided to look it up. I found a disturbing video, one that reveals a complex, multi-faceted social problem.

What happened when they got there is telling, to say the least.

chain LinkI am a Christian first and foremost, to be sure, but I am also a big fan of science fiction (BIG FAN!). For those of you who did not know, today marks the death of the man who played Spock from the original Star Trek. He made a cameo appearance in one of the recent movie remakes, and he surprised me a bit by how old he looked! Then again, Spock’s first appearance was in the 60s.

All the same, I am quite saddened by his death. Live long and prosper, Leonard.

Ball and ChainA song came to my mind today. It was on an album one of my brothers used to have. It’s by an artist named Ian Eskelin, and you can find it on his album Save The Humans. If you haven’t listened to it before, you should track it down and give it some of your time. It’s a fantastic album, full of biblical themes packed into an entertaining rock package.

But most of all, this particular song stuck out to me. It speaks to the raging fires of political correctness that have consumed many of our freedoms and much of our courage today, often weaponized to divide and conquer.
