A comment reply to Lanir

December 11, 2011 Comments off

Lanir posted a comment on my other post here. I wanted to respond to him and his “wall ‘o text” (as he put it), but I ended up writing a post-length response, and it just got out of hand haha. I created my own “wall ‘o text.” Oh well!

His comment is in boldface, and my responses are in regular type.

Note: I took the important things that I wanted to respond to from his comment, simply for space reasons, but I do not believe I left anything out that will change his meaning.

“I’m going to try something a bit different and go for a semi-reasonable conversation.”

A welcome relief 🙂

“From an outside perspective, I think the blog post here is really just a statement of beliefs.”

This is true. Specifically, it outlines my description of Jesus, who he was technically and who he is to me today.

“The replies seem to me to be consistent with that viewpoint as they largely don’t speak say much about anything brought up in the blog entry but talk about Christianity in general.” Read more…

The journey begins…

Greetings my friends!

I am looking forward to blogging about the things in life that are important to me, and hopefully, you will enjoy the writing I do.

I anticipate three categories.

My first category will be Lord of the Rings Online, a free-to-play MMORPG. I have always had a passion for J. R. R. Tolkien’s works, and this game is epic. I will post guides, posts in character, screenshots, etc. This category will make up most of the blog. I may use Elvish terms, in a bit of roleplay fun, so expect to see words that are unusual. I will put a “Language note” at the bottom of each post if I do use a different language in the post. Read more…

Reflections on Jesus

June 4, 2011 9 comments

Two thousand years ago, a Man from Nazareth named Jesus lived in a Jewish culture, gathered followers, defied the church leaders of His time, and died a criminal’s death by being executed by Roman authorities for insurgence, though the verdict was questionable. It is a seemingly simple story, but the Man behind the history means far more to His modern-day believers than the above sentence would lead one to believe. He claimed to be the Son of God, the Jews’ Messiah, and He proved His claims true by healing illnesses, driving out demons, raising people from the dead, and finally by raising Himself to life after being falsely accused and murdered. Over two thousand years, His disciples have been tortured, expelled, excommunicated, segregated, beaten, burned, decapitated, hung, poisoned, stabbed, and shot for His name. He was the pivotal person of history, of His-story, as even our calendar reflects His life on earth. He is, was, and will be. He is the Word, who was with God in the beginning. He was, to speak in simultaneously simple and complex terms, God incarnate. Read more…
