Nothing New Under the Sun…Especially with Games

After taking a little time to do more exploring through the clustered mess that is Steam, I discovered more about their catalog. Last week I posted a devotional called “Accept No Substitutes” which explored the problem with counterfeits to the Christian faith. I also touched on games that were a blatant rip-off of their source…Read more Nothing New Under the Sun…Especially with Games

Accept No Substitutes

I have an old college friend that I will occasionally play PC games with via Steam. He, like myself, enjoys good indie titles and is always on the hunt for great games that harken back to the golden age of gaming.

As a fan of classic and modern gaming alike, I have made it a personal goal of mine to own at least one controller of ever gaming console that has…Read more You Can’t Live Without Direction

If God is so good then why would He let his beloved people wallow in a hospital bed wracked with cancer or self-destruct from mental illness? Where is the justice…Read more The Hardest Teacher
