I feel that I do blog but not really blogging. Here is the Webster’s definition of a blog:

a Web site that contains online personal reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer; also : the contents of such a site

Sometimes I write “Blogs” because certain things have to be said. Since I do not include hyperlinks I am not blogging well at least not so far. Also we, the Christian Gaming Community, usually insert updates of games that the community plays which are informative and does not reflect the opinions of the admins on the website although I have been known to raise an eyebrow on occasions. On these occasions I have been known to voice my opinion or two on certain matters. We all do that’s why we are called “humans”.

Recently I come to the realization that the scriptures that I insert could be considered a hyperlink since it refers back to the Bible. Even though the bible is not its own webpage it and its contents can be found on the internet quite easily and the bible itself has been viewed by billions of people since its creation. So from this point of view then I am blogging. Oh wait I need a hyperlink.

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
James 1:22 New International Version (NIV)

Now I’m blogging

SWTOR_KOTFE_002Star Wars the Old Republic is a great game. One of my Christian friends described it as “WoW except with light-sabers. How can you go wrong with that?” The “Shadow of Revan” is a good expansion much better than the “Makeb” however “Knights of the Fallen Empire” shows great promise. Copy and paste the link for more information.

STO_The_ResoluteCryptic has released the new T6 Excelsior class ship called “The Resolute”. When I first looked at the ship I thought “Its a baby Oddy”. The bridge officer layout appears quite good and beneficial otherwise the rest of the ship is…I don’t know simply because I don’t have one. I would get one but the ship cost $30 US dollars and I should add that judging by the stats it is not one of those pay-to-win ships. See the link for more information.

Blog #2

A lot of people think we are in Revelation well to be honest we have been in Revelation for a long time now.

When I was little I watched Star Trek the original series as it debut for the first time on television and thought how wonderful it was that humankind has set aside it differences and made great strides in space travel. When I was a child our remote for the T.V. was “Son turn the T.V. to channel 5″. As I turned to the desired channel reality set in as we watched the news with Walter Cronkite telling of the war in Viet Nam followed by a segment about some students that were killed at Berkley University during a peaceful protest.

Quietly I thought to myself maybe in the future humankind will be smarter and wiser and no one will want to create wars or harm others. Maybe humankind will seek peace with all the people of the world despite color, nationality or religion. Maybe humankind will raise itself up from the ashes of power, bloodshed, war, and greed and learn to work together live cooperatively and better our lives on this frail blue sphere we call earth. Maybe humankind will collectively attain goals of wisdom and peace finding the compassion to help each other.

When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword. Revelation 6:3-4 (NIT)

It’s not that we can’t do such things but rather we choose not to and God knows this about us. Today I look at the world news and the events that shape our lives in this world and shake my head in sadness…thus ends a childhood dream.
