Left Behind Video Game Hopes to Improve Public Relations Before It’s Too Late

[Edited to Add Picture Link see the bottom of post for more details]
I’ve writen a couple time on the new Left Behind Video Game called “Eternal Forces.”

Post #1Left Behind Eternal Forces: Violence for Christians

Post #2 Training Violent Behaviors: Media and the Message of Desensitization

[rant] Yes, I admit though I haven’t played the video game I have some strong opinions about it (in all reality I don’t think I need to play the game to make the objections I’ve made but that’s another dicussion). One of the main reasons why it bothers me is because I see it as yet another way for the Christian community to sell-out to capitalism. We see repeated attempts to tailor make theology in a way that suites American tastes, at the cost to both the Gospel and to those who accept a warped understanding of such. I suspect it won’t be long before there is a special Christian edition Hummer that comes in white, is armor-ready for the tribulation and boasts of having special bible holders built in. [/rant]

Some of My Favorite 2006 Mac Weblogs

10.Png
I love using a mac and I love to keep up with all the new tricks, tips, shareware and freeware that that mac community continues to make. Over the past year I’ve found some great Apple bloggers who know their stuff, and who have helped me to hone my mac-skillzzzz.
Because of this, I tend to be a bit of a Mac-evangelist as well, and so I’m always telling people about different mac-blogs to check out. Then I realized I’ve never posted some of my favorite ones here so I thought I’d do a favorites of 2006 post.

Customized Emerging Church Google Search Engine

Picture 1-3 I spent a couple hours this morning creating a customized emerging church search engine using Google’s new Co-op feature. I’ve added tons and tons of websites and blogs that deal with emerging church issues. My sources for this list came from Scot McKnight, Ryan Bolger, The Daily Scribe, Andrew Jones, Jordon Cooper, Adam Cleaveland and Steve Taylor. This is a working project and I will be tweaking it as I receive feedback and what-not. I am sorry if I missed anyone, you can contact me if you’d like to be added.

The Daily Scribe Project Has Re-Opened

UPDATE:10.24

There have been a number of issues that came up over the future of the Daily Scribe, a religious blogging community aimed at “content” driven bloggers of various faith traditions, an aggregator driven site with 49 members a part of the community. Shawn Anthony of Lo-Fi Tribe founded the project this past summer, and I had the priviledge to be one of the first members in the group.

Live Update – Now Finished

This morning I came over to Fuller’s Coffee Shop, made myself a mug of Cafe’ au Lait, plugged in my iPod and am listening to Starflyer 59’s new album, My Island. I’ve cracked open mywebsite code, uploaded the bleeding-edge version of Subtle, and am doing a few little things here and there to tidy things up. In other words, I’m working on updating the site here, you will experience buggy behavior while this is going on.

Cheap Mac Apps for Students and Teachers

I’ve been thinking about compiling one of those “favorite apps” posts that we mac users like to do (too often no doubt). But in keeping with the tradition of mac-lovers I thought it would be good for someone to have a limited list of apps useful for educational purposes (i.e. cheap and easy to use). Here areemos especially useful for students, teachers, and teaching assistants.
