Mere Chrsitianity by C.S. Lewis

One of the most impactful books I have ever read on why Christians believe what they believe. I would suggest every christian read this book. Whether new in the faith or not, and especially those who don't know Christ but are curious. Its intelligent, its clear, it gives the non-beliver reason to believe. Mere Chrisitianity written by C.S. Lewis is a must read.

You can also 'listen' to the book on youtube FOR FREE!!! Listen to the first two parts below.

DJ AM rant

DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) was a prominent disk jockey who worked with the likes of Papa Roach, Madonna, Will Smith, among others and even presented last years MTV Music awards with Travis barker of rock band Blink 182. AM was found dead at around 5:20pm on Friday August 28th. Aparently he had just been through a breakup with his model girlfriend and couldn't bare it. He'd been battling a drug and alcohol addiction for some time and it all came to a head on friday as he died of a cocaine overdose. In our culture cocaine and celebrity almost go hand in hand.

We have become so desensitized to the use of hard drugs by secular 'idols' that hearing of a drug related death rarely gets the public thinking about the drug but more about the celebrity and their past accomplishments. It's very rare to see a cocaine related death such as this one be followed up by a strong wide-spread campaign led by one of the big teen TV stations denouncing drug use as deadly, life wrecking, and at the very least criminal (lol). No, MTV, E!, and VH1 for the next few weeks will probably air a series of DJ AM appearances on their respective channels with no word of the dangers of celebrity approved hard drug use. "End cocaine use in hollywood" and "So what Britney snorts crack doesn't mean I have to" are just two phrases you will never see in a celebrity magazine or TV show.

NOTW (Not of this world) clothing

You might have already heard of this clothing company and if not chances are you've come across someone wearing it. As for me I came across it while looking for some christ inspired clothing to buy online. NOTW has never dissapointed. Its a clothing line based out of Los Angeles CA, and goes by the name of C28 clothing (C28 being colosians 2:8). It's designs are always exciting and eye catching, never boring or plain. It is also one of the more popular christian youth brands out there. I just bought two shirts and something interesting and new happened at the end of the purchase. After paying I was asked if I wanted to DONATE part of my purchase to one of three C28 ministries: Evangelism, outreach, and mercy ships (a global charity that brings hope and healing to the worlds poorer nations). The best thing about it is that C28 doesn't ask you to donate more of your money but to tell them where you want a portion of the money you already used for the clothing to go. I think that's great.

I really encourage you to check out there stuff and maybe buy a few things. Check out NOTW at . Its also in my links section.

Psalm 51- still sinning.

1 Have mercy on me, God, according to your loving kindness. According to the multitude of your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity. Cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I know my transgressions. My sin is constantly before me.
4 Against you, and you only, have I sinned, and done that which is evil in your sight; that you may be proved right when you speak, and justified when you judge.
5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity. In sin my mother conceived me.
6 Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts. You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.
7 Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean. Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
8 Let me hear joy and gladness, That the bones which you have broken may rejoice.
9 Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all of my iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me.
11 Don't throw me from your presence, and don't take your holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation. Uphold me with a willing spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways. Sinners shall be converted to you.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation. My tongue shall sing aloud of your righteousness.


With the deepest regrets and hatred of my sins I pray oh Lord that you forgive me. Cleanse me so that I may once again be worthy of your love. I know the holy spirit inside me has made my struggles easier to bear but I still manage to fail. I honestly can't live without you Lord, even while languishing in the fleshly pleasures of sin I feel like I'm holding my breath, I can't stay that way for long. Once again I beg for forgiveness and I know that you can erase my sins. I thank you for saving me, always being with me, and always giving me that second chance. I will make it my goal to do the same for others as you have done for me. Thank you Jesus for hearing my prayers. Amen.

Thomas jefferson quotes

"A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference."

"The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers."

"An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens."

"Never fear the want of business. A man who qualifies himself well for his calling, never fails of employment."

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

BET Interview 2007

I found this off a facebook friend. Very funny stuff, but real.

Even while I was lost I knew the music I was listening to wasn't Godly by any stretch of the imagination (If you want a taste of some of my former favorite types of music just look at my previous posts). I love the look on the faces of the 2 friends when they start getting the 'tough' questions. If I were in their shoes 2 years ago only one thing would have come to mind: '*Expletive* I'm trapped in a conversation about my religion with some stranger and I can't walk away because I'm on camera *Expletive*'. LOLOLOLOL. I would have felt guilty throughout the WHOOOOLE concert, (or in this case event).
