Apathy
The world is saturated with causes.  Online petitions, political discussions, advocacy groups, charities, and pleas for help saturate the internet, media, and everyday life.  It is impossible to get away from them.  It seems that everyone has a laundry-list of special causes that they rate you by; you had better measure up to their level of passion or you're probably a terrible person.  Sometimes these causes become the grounds for bullying as friends bicker and shun each other over a political opinion.  It can be exhausting. With all these causes out there, it is little surprise that I'm starting to see a backlash of apathy.  Any discussion

Judging Judgments
As a disclaimer, although I am directing this discussion to a Christian audience, I am aware that many people, not just Christians, have a problem with the concept of being judgmental.  I have seen pro-gay advocates and atheists throw the "don't judge" bomb to shut down discussion as well as Christians.  However, only in Christian circles have I heard the complaint that people are "intolerant of my intolerance."  This concept is absurd and it has no place in productive conversation.  Let me give an example of an incident I was recently involved in to illustrate. I saw a link on my friend's Facebook page mentioning Carrie Underwood's claim th

Walking Through Water: Reflection on Art and Faith
It has often struck me with awe that some of the most religious people I have known have been, on the surface, atheists. Atheism is a peculiar state of mind; I quite personally feel you cannot deny the existence of something that does not exist. I don't believe I can say, "That chair is not there," if there is no chair to say it about. Many atheists deny God because they do in fact care so passionately about a caring and personal God and the world around them is inconsistent with the God of love, they feel, and so they say, "There is no God." But even when one denies God, to create music, art, or words is a religious activity. To serve any di

Time off...
Just a heads up that I'll be "AWOL" from dA for a while. I've realised I'm spending way too much time online just lately (part of summer holidays mentality, I guess) and so I'm going to go 'cold turkey' for a few weeks, and use the time in better ways! Emails will still reach me, but that's it. Blessings of peace to you all :)

Tagging - nine questions for you!
Purloined from ~EternalGeekExposed (https://www.deviantart.com/eternalgeekexposed) - Apparently I should write 5 things about me, answer her 9 questions, and then make 9 questions of my own to ask those I tag.  Tagging :iconredrum-110: :iconerfalaswen: :iconneoconvoy: :iconskiesofchaos: :iconschmetterlingmx: :iconemowolf26: :iconvioletparrnarnia: :iconeruntane: :iconnewcastlemale: For those of you I tag, you don't have to do it if you don't want...

I saw your "Brothers and Sisters" stamp, and I also happened to see a few of your other works. All of it is so beautiful, I just thought you deserved a llama. Take care :)
