Gold. Guns. Girls.

This song comes straight from Ecclesiastes, specifically 3:11. Eternity is written on the hearts of every woman, man, boy and girl; what we have here in front of us will never be enough in light of Christ who alone is sufficient. This song uses sexual metaphor (not explicit) as a indictment on the human state and pursuit of more of what we already have to fill the void. The void is the size of eternity and cannot be filled by the temporal pursuits of money, power and sex which will never be enough. Western culture says "the pursuit of getting more of what you already have will make you happy." I smell lies.

Jesus in the media.

This is a music video from the Kings of Leon entitled "Pyro." There is light sexual content and major Christological themes. They are not a Christian band.

Riveting Images

I decided, as a partly creative outlet, to post images/media/articles that have captured my attention, possibly changing the way I view the world.

Riots in Egypt over President Mubarak

Tsunami Damage in Japan, bodies of the departed.

Nakba 2011, Palestine.

Above: The Fiance of a slain social worker protests the judges ruling. 

The article which is found here chronicles the last few years of a paranoid killers life leading to the murder. Their was a hugely satanic undertone that seemed to be brushed aside which has lead me to consider what mental illness really could be, or in some part that is. This isn't the way things should be.
