A favorite film: The Last Temptation of Christ

I have always loved The Last Temptation of Christ by Martin Scorsese. I think I love and appreciate it the most, because it’s the most human portrayal of Jesus I’ve ever seen anywhere. Willem Dafoe’s portrayal of Him seems so relatable. He struggles with God’s plan for Him. He agonizes over things. He doubts. HeContinue reading “A favorite film: The Last Temptation of Christ”

Browns Free Agency Frenzy!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And no I’m not talking about Christmas or getting the #1 pick in the NFL Draft. March 17th marked another critical point in the NFL offseason. Free Agency is upon us! It truly is uncharted territory here. Usually, the Cleveland Browns might be focused on signing aContinue reading “Browns Free Agency Frenzy!”

Learning from Leviticus

I’ve surprised myself! Haha. I’ve read completely through the books of Genesis and Exodus. But I was definitely feeling burned out by the end of the 40 chapters of Exodus. Plus a lot of Exodus after the Israelites are freed, focuses on the food regulations and general life laws besides the Ten Commandments, and it’sContinue reading “Learning from Leviticus”

Chronicles of Brothers: Part 2

Okay it’s official: Chronicles of Brothers is my favorite book series! For those of you who don’t know, Chronicles of Brothers is a Biblical/Fantasy series written by British author Wendy Alec. The timeline begins well before the creation of Man, and is supposed to extend to Revelation and the end of the world. For someContinue reading “Chronicles of Brothers: Part 2”

A Puncher’s Chance

I love many different movies. But I’m a sucker for inspirational sports films. Remember the Titans, The Blind Side, the Rocky series to name a few. But even though Cinderella Man is an inspirational sports movie, it just seems to hit me differently. I normally don’t get emotional at movies, but by the end ofContinue reading “A Puncher’s Chance”

My Time in the Galaxy Far, Far Away

I will always remember the first time one of my teachers in preschool called me Skywalker when I was a little boy. Although what I don’t remember is when or exactly how I became a fan of Star Wars. I’ve just always seemed to love it ever since I can remember. From my earliest, happiestContinue reading “My Time in the Galaxy Far, Far Away”

What is True Religion?

Even though I don’t talk to God as much as I probably should and can always be better, He certainly spoke to me today when I opened up the Bible app on my phone this morning. Usually there’s a daily reflection centered around a particular verse, passage or theme. Today’s verse was James 1:27, whichContinue reading “What is True Religion?”

Why Do I Believe in Jesus?

I was asking myself that question a little bit ago. And I believe anyone who is either considering following Jesus, or who is already following Him, should ask themselves that question repeatedly. For if we can provide reasons that are secure to us, and at least believable to others, it will strengthen our faith asContinue reading “Why Do I Believe in Jesus?”

Found Him!

Guys, I’m excited! I absolutely have to share what I learned from listening to the story of Joseph, the son of Jacob, and his eleven brothers. I have heard the story several times, but only just now picked up several huge comparisons from Joseph in the Old Testament, and Jesus in the New Testament. IContinue reading “Found Him!”

Newfound interest in studying Scripture

Have you ever had your eyes opened to a new way of thinking, and then you become incredibly eager to learn more about something? That’s been me since New Year’s Day when it comes to Scripture. Before, when I would read Scripture or hear it, I would understand some of the moral lessons God isContinue reading “Newfound interest in studying Scripture”
