Re: What is up with some of the newer Video games?

Well games are generally a secular endeavor, and many of them target an audience who likes swearing and bad-mouthing religion. (And let's be honest, with some of the things we've done over the years in the name of God, there's plenty of fodder for bad-mouthing.) But yeah, it's not ideal in my view e...

Re: Disney cancels popular Christian concert hosted there

I dunno... I guess I find that article to be a touch sensationalist. I mean, sure, they might be cancelling it all for political reasons, but that's kind of their call to make. The quotes about "Disney rolling over in his grave" are a bit much. (Plus given what the Walt Disney Company has done in th...

Praises for the little things

Sometimes I think I take a lot of stuff for granted, so I am posting this thread that has some little stuff I'm super thankful for but forget to BE thankful for in a conscious way. (Feel free to join in, it can be a nice opportunity to look at the good things in life, big or small.) - It is snowing ...

Re: JK's Art Thread

Realized I haven't posted art here in a long while! Sorry. (I tried to a bunch of times, but the site doesn't let you put large images and most of my work is in large image size! Maybe there could be a way the forum just resizes them down if they are too large? Another forum I visit does that automa...

Re: Life Update

What a great update, thanks for sharing it! I know in my life I've been part of many forums and it's always curious to know what happened to folks who have left. Cool to see someone return to let folks know what's been going on. :)

Good luck with the wedding!

Re: I feel screwed up

Will definitely pray for you. Friends/fellowship is important! If it helps at all to hear you're not alone, you aren't alone. I had a period of time in my 20s when it felt like I had zero friends, and I prayed a lot for new friends (which I am thankful eventually showed up, through my church!). But ...

Re: deck building games anyone

Some friends and my wife and I play Pathfinder (the card based one) which is pretty deck-building. The nice thing about that game is all the cards come with the game, so it isn't like you're buying booster packs or whatever. You can get expansions, but they aren't randomized, so you never feel like ...

Re: Free Will and Predestination

In fact, I'll take it a step further and say that if God exists, and He has a plan for our salvation, then we MUST have freewill or the entire enterprise is meaningless and there's no point to us even being conscious. Yeah, see that makes sense to me as well. If there's zero free will in there, why...

Re: Girl dies for 23 hours comes back and tells about heaven and hell

Hopefully it helps someone who needs it. I am rather torn on such testimonies, myself, probably because of my suspicious nature regarding human kind! However I have to hold in my mind at all times Romans 14:4. And there was certainly a time when I would have simply judged outright this to be either ...

Re: Free Will and Predestination

Hey, I'm all for hearing what you're led to share, to be honest! I find all these deep topics fascinating.

I guess I was talking initially about some combination of both of the things you mentioned. So I'm interested in either, what was your original started-reply on?

Re: What is your favourite colour?

Honestly at this point in my life I don't think I HAVE a favorite color! I like most of them now.

I guess still partial to golden yellow, like the one N64 controller. If I have a choice to pick something in that color, I usually pick that.

Re: Category: Proof that video games are evil!

12/15 but only because I knew Pokemon and not at all because I recognized any history.

Oops.

But this DOES make one think. What amazing things could video games teach us if we made games that combined history with the joy of playing Pokemon? I have to believe it's possible, somehow...

Free Will and Predestination

Hey CCG brothers and sisters! I've had a great time over the last year or so diving deeper into the subject of Free Will and Predestination pertaining to Christianity. I'm learning more and more with every interaction, and I thought I would make a thread about it to get your thoughts as well. I love...
