Are There Christian Aliens Out There?

The popularity of science fiction has really grown. What used to be the beloved past time of nerdy guys in their parent’s basement has become much more mainstream. But the belief in extraterrestrial life is hardly confined to science fiction. The SETI (the search for extraterrestrial intelligence) project, the Hubble telescope, and a myriad of other things are all trying to answer one question, ‘Are we alone in the universe?’

Where There's Smoke

Yesterday I did a good deed. 

Or at least I tried too. 

When I pulled into a grocery store parking lot I noticed the car beside me looked a little off. It seemed like smoke was coming from the engine. Now I wasn't sure if my eyes were playing tricks on me or if the truck that had just driven by kicked up a lot of exhaust fumes. 

So I walked over for a closer look. Sure enough as I looked I saw a faint yet steady cloud of smoke wafting into the air.

Hell's Bell's and Jesus

A friend posted on his Facebook Wall an article titled Rob Bell's Replacement Speaks Out on Bell and Hell by Shane Hipps (who is the pastor that replaced Rob Bell at Mars Hill in Detroit). Now Hell is hardly a favourite topic of mine. But after I read this article I knew I wanted to respond.

Before we start I have to say it is telling, and very sad that the editor included a note that says, "...we encourage you to share your thoughts in the comment section below--we also encourage you to be civil and use Scripture to back up your arguments." After skimming the comments I can't help but think may of those who left comments choose to ignore this this 'suggestion'.

With that out of the way let's wade into this 'fun' debate.
