Questions for the Reader

As we approach Halloween, I find myself appalled yet, intrigued, by the obsession of our culture with "horror" on television, in the movies and in the decorating of yards. Horror, or extreme fear, sends an adrenaline rush through our bodies that provides a momentary "high" which some find appealing.

I suspect that adrenaline rush is part of the self-preservation mechanisms designed into our bodies. It gives us that extra surge of energy to escape an attacking lion or an enemy. In today's society however, movies, etc., which seek to give us that adrenaline surge, are built around themes of evil. Therefore, I think it an appropriate time to ask some questions.

What is evil?

Is man basically evil or basically good?

If, like many, you believe that man is basically good, from where did evil come?

Please feel free to submit answers to the questions in the comments.

Just A Post

Once again it has been a long time between posts. I have been "crazy busy" with work. It seems that my travel schedule continues to get worse. In fact, from now until the middle of December I have something every week that requires out-of-town travel. I enjoy my job -- I get tired of being away from home.

We have started "The Truth Project." It is a video series produced by Focus On The Family that delves into the Christian Worldview vs. the Secular Worldview. It is an absolute must for all Christians who desire to live at a higher level in this world. It is a great tool for opening eyes to the lies that surround us. You can find out more about it at

Cold-and-flu season is in full swing. I am fighting a cold. It makes it difficult to stay focused on the things that I need to accomplish. This too shall pass.

Enough of this -- I'd better get back to work.
