Matthew 5:44 – So I happened to read a regular text entry on a Podcast that I subscribe to. This Podcast is like an audiobook, actually this is his second book. Well it would seem his site, with posts and comments, was hacked. This in and of itself isn’t a huge deal, except for the fact that the person doing the hacking is claiming to be apart of the cummunity of believers in Intelligent Design. It rather has me annoyed at how twisted people’s thinking get when it comes to their beliefs. How any true Christian can think that by attacking the non-Christian masses is going to be an effective witness is beyond me. How many converts did the Crusades see? I’m sure there were more deaths than converts to the Christian faith. Another example, is killing the doctors who perform abortions going to stop abortions from taking place, certainly not, and this only places Christians in the arena as other religions that believe violence is justified for their faith. Obviously the so-called Christians do not actually read God’s Word and value it as the ultimate truth. God has infinitely more power than we will ever have, and He can work in the hearts of people. As Christians, while we need to stand our ground and desire a safe world for our families, we need to stop this un-God like attack on the secular world.

Ok, so I guess I took a break from the whole blog thing, sort of. Basically I ended up adding some additional features and tweaks. I never did get to see any friends. Oh well, hopefully another time. Sunday, my family and I headed off to the Minnesota State Fair with my aunt and uncle. My sister invited two friends so they basically went off and did their own thing. It started out with kind of crumby weather on the way, but it cleared up by the time we got their and started walking around. I can’t say that I say anything exceptional. Did visit the technology building (surprised?! LOL), and Unisys had some pretty cool bio-metric stuff they were showing off. HP was there…
“Don’t run ahead of God in your own strength, but rather trust Him to show you the solution.” I think this is one area that, as Christ followers, we all struggle with at times. I know that daily I need to give up control and let God lead. Then the LORD said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men.” JOSHUA 6:2 NIV
Hmm…so as I was just beginning to type this post I’m thinking once again. What is really ok to be sharing and what isn’t. I tend to be almost an open book with my life on here. Is this ok. My ultimate concern is how the people that read it might be effected, especially if it happens that I talk about them in my blog. The truth of the matter is I need to be extra careful about what I say about any, if at all. Talking about people on here is borderline gossip, actually it’s not much different. So now I’m thinking I need to change my writting a bit. What I write needs to be kept about myself for the most part. Obviously…
Well, yes I’m finally posting to the blog again. Trips tend to take me out of the blog-o-sphere. Well, sorry to disappoint many, but this is going to be a short one tonight. I’m not quite out of the dark on the sick feeling that hit me yesterday, pretty close though. The Good: Had a good time with my family and got to hang out with two of my best friends growing up. It’s interesting to see where we are all at now in life. John’s all married with a baby on the way. Sounds like they’ll be doing some moving around in the years to come. I really hope John’s finds the job he’s really looking for. Jeff is still as quirky as every….
Well, I’ll leave you with this much, I had a wonderful weekend. I’m tired however. I’ve finally gotten everything up for the podcast. I’ll have to get to writing the full story tomorrow night perhaps. Nite!
I can’t remember how many times I’ve let myself get stressed out by job. It’s a bit of a reality check to read how meaningless it is in the grand scheme of things to get stressed about one’s work.
