Lust Control

My friend that Rabbi posted today on Fighting Lust with some links to the Irish Calvinist and a great resource from John Piper. I will direct you there for the serious side of the discussion and some valuable tools he has already listed. But it did remind me of an infamous underground Christian punk band with secret identities, ski masks, and a penchant for the taboo. Luckily the church has come along way since the days of Lust Control and now discussions about sexuality and sex are handled openly and biblically. (in most cases) Thanks in part to this new attitude the identities of the group are no longer a secret either. In fact to my surprise they even have a myspace though they no longer perform or record.

One of their most memorable songs was "The Big M." I'll give you one guess what that one is about. Check out their music and check out the Rabbi's thoughts on the subject.

Coffee Cup Quote Too Hot for Women to Stomach

See the full article here about a women offended by what she considered an inflammatory quote on her Starbucks cup. Go to the article to see the full quote from the cup and the entire article including comments by other readers both pro and con. But here is the snippet of the quote that I wanted to point out:

"As cognitive beings, why would we ask something that may well be a figment of our imaginations for guidance? Why not search inside ourselves for the power to overcome?" a snippet of the quote from the cup...

Doesn't the author of this quote contradict himself in these two sentences. He seems incensed that people would ask a figment of their imagination for guidance. In his view God is a product of their on mind. Yet the answer he offers is to search insides ones self for answers! So really he is accusing those who pray of doing the very thing he then instructs them to do, am I right?

Marvel vs. PC (Mac/PC Parody)

A while back I posted a blog listing some great videos on YouTube. Including the parody of Mac vs. PC sereis called Christian vs. Christfollower.

I found these new videos at Youtube and just had to share them. In a parody of the incredibly funny and popular Mac vs PC commercials someone has created a set of Marvel vs DC parodies with Spiderman and Superman discussing the comic companies upcoming movie productions (or lack of in one case.) I am including links to videos 1, 2, and 4 and posting video three here on the site. Video three is the funniest in my opinion. Now there is also this response to the first four including Batman.
