“I never asked to be born, and death’s no question. The sun’s still shining off the same old lessons. Then why does life feel like an educated guess and my thoughts are like meals, I’m a sucker for the seconds. Impressions got a lot of us stressing, but how we are perceived is more about a reflection.”

Some provocative words from this rapper show how steeped a song can become with philosophy. Honestly, the song is more than just a cool beat and some dope lyrics that make you wanna rhyming with the guy. Oddisee shows a bit of his mind, while trying to promote something more than himself. I applaud the guy for his lyrical genius in the song and most of his other ones too. So, as a night-cap, I wanted to introduce you to a song, but I wanted to show you that within music there lies a whole other world that most of us are unaware of: the world of ideas, philosophies, and experiences.

Favorite Podcast

demo-cover2

So, since I graduated, I have really been into podcasts for a multitude of reasons—some noble and some selfish. One of my favorite podcasts is from Brant and Sherri, who are two Christians that I respect because they are hitting evangelical culture with the reality of the Gospel. Yet, I love them, not because they are talking about Jesus, it is because they are just real about life and grace.

They have a radio show, and it is conjunction with CURE International. You should check it out and see what they are doing.

You should go read his blog….and really…Check out CURE.

The Creation Debate?

The god particle is a recent post from Jesse Carey, who contributes to RELEVANT, on the ongoing Creation debate. For some, the debate is not over the reality of Creation, like some evangelicals…it is really about the authority and inspiration of Scripture. While on the side of many people is the reality of what science has been leading us to believe is “HOW” the cosmos was formed.

The debate on whether God did or did not create the world in six literal 24 hour days is a hot button issue for many conservatives. This is part of my “night cap” section for the specific reason of directing you to a place, where I think it was well-written and thoughtful. If you fall on either side of the line, congrats…I really don’t care.

My view is still out, because I think there are certain things, other than the context of Genesis 1-3, within Scripture making this debate and conversation nulled and void, yet I understand articulating it is critically important. In other words what I am saying is: I’m still thinking about it, and it is okay for me to say that.
