Random Thoughts 1/21/13

  • I was anticipating a Broncos and Falcons Super Bowl… so I got that wrong.
  • The conspiracy theory video that's been floating around facebook regarding the Sandy Hook shooting is ridiculous.  I watched it.  It was unfair, slanted, unnecessarily obtuse and devious.  Snopes does a good job of debunking some of the supposed hoaxes, point by point.  It's worth reviewing.
  • Yes, indeed, you needed a detailed lawyer's analysis of Bilbo's contract with Thorin Oakenshield.  It's hard to get more nerdy than this.
  • What were the top 10 most-read Bible verses of 2012 on Bible Gateway?  Not the ones you might expect.  Check it out here.
  • Big game coming up on Tuesday.  Good luck, Wildcat friends!
  • Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg produced "Band of Brothers" and "The Pacific" for HBO.  Now they are going to make a third WW2 series, this time about the air war above Europe, focusing on the Eight Air Force's B-17 bombers.

Your right. we are called to be fisher of men. But that doesn't allow us to partake in the filth around us. Would you then justify people who watch shows on HBO, and Showtime that depict graphic nudity and sexaul acts looking for gold specs? Does not How I met Your Mother simply use words rather that pictues to display immorality in what was created to be God's Holy Union? I believe it is not a fish you smell like but a goat who acts and look like a goat. You seem to be a sheep in name only. You claim that you are helping individuals reach Christ? How has partaking in your favorite sitcoms helped? If you are running a race and find an individual who has lost a limb. Do you not help the individual get help either by picking them up or gtting them help. What you propose is that we lay down with the injured claiming that the lost limb still has a working toe (gold spec). At last I leave you with this thought. Would you allow children and teenagers to engage in the same conversations and course joking involved in the sitcom? Would you allow children or teenagers to listen to explicit music? Would you watch the show with your mother or elder member of the Church family?
