Video game simulators are really popular for some reason. You can build your own cities, fly aeroplanes, and even experience being a bus driver!. But alas, one idea hadn’t been covered yet. One idea to trump them all; a video game which would surely be groundbreaking and needed in today’s dark uncertain times. What idea […]Read More The Jesus Simulator: Coming Soon.
Once upon a time, I was in a long-distance relationship. We would chat every day on the phone, claim to love each other, and enjoy each other’s company. But there was a big problem… we lived in different countries. Eventually we did meet a few times, and we really enjoyed the times we had together. […]Read More Leaving a relationship with Jesus.

In my last post, I discussed the Biblical evidence offered for Jesus, as well as briefly covering the archaeological evidence for Jesus. If this interests you, read part one […]Read More Was Jesus a real person? Part Two.

I was driving down the road, thinking about life as you do, when it all started to come flooding back. You know, I considered myself an atheist. I don’t believe in a God. I’m not sure if Jesus was a real person, let alone the son of God. Yet something happened recently which challenged those […]Read More I met Jesus’s mother.
Remember this guy? In case you haven’t seen that post, Chris Walker is a Nazarene Christian whos Facebook page I stumbled upon. He shares some of the craziest, vile crap on his page. But whether intentional or not, I got a big laugh out of his posts, instead of feeling offended. If you click on […]Read More Some laughs to start off the New Year.
The other day I was browsing through my Facebook feed, when I saw a post that Larry*, a Christian friend of mine shared: Now this photo isn’t particularly funny, but after looking at it, I wanted to see where he had shared it from.
