A Week of Hurt...:(

by on

Ok so this week hasn't really been all that great...

I've been working and going to school alot... Trying to stay away from home, 'cause my mom's always yelling and my dad has cancer...:| My brother cut his hand pretty bad this week and had to get stitches, so he can't really do much stuff... It's just kinda been me and my dog Arc this week... (I really love my dog 9 month old Pitbull) I haven't gotten much sleep this week, 'cause the weather's been really weird and Arc's been jumping into my bed... (for those of you who don't know, I have the cutest little dog in the world... She's a 9 month old pitbull puppy who was the runt of the litter and very well bred... so she's a beautiful little slendered body, but muscular dog... Wow that sounded gay Anyway back to my horrible week... Wow I really am Emo...:P One of the guys I work with's last day was Wednesday... He went to get a better job cause he's having a baby... So now my buddies gone, and it's just me and my mentally handicapped uncle working the warehouse... There's a girl that works the counter at the store who's sole purpose in life is to make me look bad... My boss was like why don't you stand up for yourself...? and I responded "Well if that's how she gets her jollies, what rite do I have to take that away from her...?" So I've basically become the whipping post for everyone at work... I don't really mind that... I've become used to that over the last few years... but the girl I'm crazy about works at the counter too... and all she sees is a guy who won't stand up for himself... On top of that my boss hired a new kid to work the warehouse without concenting me... and now as head of the warehouse I have to teach him the ropes... This kid is 15, has an attitude problem, can't lift the 50# bags of feed without almost popping a ***well you know*** and I don't play well with others in the workplace...

All I wanted was for her to see me as I am... Not for the whipping post I've become...

Then I made a total idiot of myself today...

It was her birthday and we were supposed to sing her happy birthday, but I couldn't pull myself away from the work long enough to actually sing with the group... about an hour later, realizing I had missed it, I went in to the store to tell her I was sorry for not singing happy birthday... and she looked really sad... So I stood right at the front counter with people all around (bosses, other co-workers, customers, ect... ect...) and sang her happy birthday... She got a big smile on her face and said thank you... And I felt like the world's biggest brownnosing J@ck@$$... so sad

The Christian-Horror Relationship

by on

    What is the relationship between Christians, and the Horror genre?

     This question has created quite a problem for many Christians who enjoy the horror genre. No form of media is exempt from the truth of the matter; certain evils have come to be associated with horror...

Many Christians I know, are against the whole concept of the horror genre. My mother, for example, is against the horror genre because my favorite series is the Resident Evil series. Without having a first hand knowledge of the genre, she cannot make an informed decision about the validity of the impact the series will have on my life. However, I believe that removing ourselves from the picture, to attain an unbiased opinion, will show perspectives that may not have shown themselves before.

     Movies, for example, show the greatest example of these evils. Because vulger language has become so accepted in today's society, cursing has become rather prevolent in horror media. It is a known fact that when people become scared or angry, they are more likely to say and do things which they would not normally say or do. Because this is accepted does it make it right? My dad has felt the need to share with me numerous times, that when he was growing up in the 60's and 70's, it was offensive to people to hear curse words on tv. Even words such as "damn" or "hell" were taboo, but today anything is acceptable. I do not get the chance to watch many horror movies, due to the fact that the language portayed in those movies is not befitting of a Christian.

Colossians 3:8

     Horror in the media has also become linked with sexuality and nudity. Many horror movies contain nudity, or other sexually explisit content. Again, for a Christian, this is un-acceptable.

    1 Corinthians 6:18

     Matthew 5:28

     However, we cannot look at the negatives in something without looking also at the positives, or at least the acceptable.

     There are many games and series' which do not contain the concepts which the bible deems unacceptable. Series' such as Fatal Frame and the early Resident Evils are simply games made to scare, and anyone who says that games that do not contain vulgar lanuage and/or sexual content cannot scare you has never played Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly.

     The decision of Christians as to what they will allow to enter their entertainment world is between them and God, but as a pastor at a holiness believing church (Nazarene), I cannot condone the things in many of the genre's media that are found exceptable. I will not, however, chastise the genre for being horror...

     You can either agree with me, or disagree with me, but the bible says immorality is detestible to God. Christians have two options: To either prove the presence of Christ in their lives, or the lack of. To many time we want to make everything gray instead of cut and dry black and white, because if I can reason things out to make myself feel better I don't have to change anything...

A New Blog :O

by on

Ok... So I guess it's finally time to post a new blog...

I'm sitting in CCC's Comp. Lab waiting for my class to start, cause today's the first day of the new semester... I tell you what there's nothing like your first class being a Sociology class... Let alone it being "Death & Dying", but I usually make fun of the dead and have little pitty for the dying... So I guess being a pastor I really should take the class on helping ppl deal with this stuff...

In other non-school related news... **I got my character on Oblivion to lvl 27... and got to lvl 100 marksman... SWEET!!! I'm also almost done the main story line, reached head of all the guilds, and only have to defeat the head daedric prince and close his gate to get all the achievments...**    **I got kinda pissed off and stopped playing Dead Rising for a little while (which would be why I'm getting so far in Oblivion)**   **I'm waiting and getting really anxious for the new TES: Shivering Isles, Fable 2, Evleon, Two Worlds, and Oblivion for PSP to come out...**

And in other non-gaming news... I burned my arm on my wood stove today, and it really hurts... I am now leading a service at my church specifically for college ppl... I really like actually getting to be someone's pastor... :D

PS. I'm really happy SilentDeath777 is back... :D

I think I'm going to Music Central after this class is over, so I can check out getting another guitar... Me and my best friend Vladd are starting a coffee house ministry at our church... I'm now a licensed minister, so I'm going to be leading it, and he's going to be my right hand man (cause he's more compitant that I am)... My band's doing pretty good too, but you guys don't care about that... Well I gotta go now...

Hey everybody...

I just got the rank of Guildmaster for the Fighters Guild on Oblivion... So that pushed my live score up to 1045 finally...

So now I'm the Grey Fox, Fighter's Guild Master, Dark Brotherhood Listener, and Champion of the Arena...

And On other news that nobody cares about... I may have just discovered my families past... I have been asking my dad to help me find out about our families history... But he keeps telling me that there are things about our family that I don't need to worry about... Well I've been searching on my own, and I just discovered our family crest... Our family is a line of Saxons from lower Germany (Saxony) Our family became famous in Saxony for our contrabutions to the emerging medievil society...

This is so cool... I'm finally finding out where I came from... I knew I was German, but that was it...
