There has been a comment on my earlier post about the things we as Christians should not fear, and I have been meaning to write a reply for some time.
What do you say to a mother who lives in constant fear of harm befalling her family? Especially when so many think God is the one who will bring these horrible things to happen. It seems that God promises to keep us from much harm and evil if we will stay very very close to Him. The problem is many people do not stay there.
It has been considered generally good blogging advice to enable and use comments on posts. On this blog, comments are disabled.
As I prepare my editorial calendar to begin resuming regular updates, I realized I never explained why I have decided this.
The idea of having comment threads on a blog is to create a tiny social network on the author’s site. Someone posts a comment, and they check back to see who responded. You develop a community on your page.
I believe we h
It has been over a year since my last post, as I adjusted to a “regular job” that takes most of my waking hours.
But I have a very brief update today with 2 points of interest:
The Way of The Christian Samurai is Free on Amazon Kindle today through Monday, April 24. Get your copy here!
The Christian Samurai and Christian Pirate shirts that have been out of print for the past 2 years are back, and on Amazon! I think these are the lowest price I’ve ever been able to
Craig Shimahara and I connected several years ago, after he had finished producing his short film Good Soil and I had finished writing The Way of the Christian Samurai. We obviously shared a certain perspective of Christianity in light of the ancient masters of the sword, the samurai of Japan. So when Masterless was finally done, Craig sent me a screening copy to review. Visual Masterpiece
Craig’s background is architectural illustration, when he’s not making movies. I point thi
As a Christian parent, how you handle the Santa issue is one of those hot-button issues. Some keep the tradition going, others see participating in the idea of Santa giving gifts as dishonest.
My wife and I have encouraged the belief in Santa Claus, and are not ashamed to admit we still believe in the mission of St. Nicholas of Myra, and acknowledge miracles that take place in the carrying out of that ministry.
The parental challenge, therfore, is how to transition those young
One of the human race’s favorite games, according to G.K. Chesterton, is called “Cheat the Prophet.” In this age-old game, the players listen to what wise or clever men say, and when they die, they bury them nicely and go an do something different. As it is about that time when we celebrate the birth … Continue reading 3 Prophetic Warnings From America’s Founding Fathers That Have Gone Unheeded →
As St. Patrick’s day approaches, and thoughts turn to Ireland (or at least some fabled Emerald Isle that bears the name) I think there is something in the saint’s story worth considering when we reflect on our local church:
1) There are many beautiful churches and cathedrals in Ireland.
2) Many modern (built in the 70’s or later) churches in America seem uninspired, even ugly.
I’m not really qualified to make objective statements about architecture; I realize that
The many changes over the past seven months (and more) with this site and my work has a rather simple explanation. After about 7 years of freelancing, I got a regular job.
The biggest adjustment for my family has been the time; a commute, 8 hours of work or more, lunch time that doesn’t count – almost half the week is now spent away from home.
I now spend most of my waking hours in the “normal” world of an American office. A small but growing company, and having worked for sma
After several years of publishing Clean of Heart by Rosemarie Scott, an invaluable book for overcoming habitual sins against purity – put bluntly, pornography and masturbation – the program is no longer distributed by myself or Eternal Revolution (or the old name that appears on the Revised Edition of the book, R.A.G.E. Media. )
Rosemarie has a new 3rd edition out, published directly by herself with the help of Amazon (Hooray for Distributism/Microcapitalism!) and it
The past several months have been full of radical changes here. Radical, coming from the same Latin root as the word “root.” The shift has changed the very basics of my family’s life, particularly our available time.
This “root” change has led me too look back over the past seven years of Eternal Revolution and the projects and books I have created. I realized that my initial goal – to produce useful books and written materials, has somehow been dilu
