Bible Verse of the Day – He Who Dwells In the Secret Place of the Most High Shall Remain Stable and Fixed Under the Shadow of the Almighty Whose Power No Foe Can Withstand – Psalm 91:1-2

Psalm 91 1 Matrix View He who dwells in the secret place of the most high shall remain under the shadow of the Almighty whose power no foe can withstand

The Truth of Christ makes you like Neo. No foe can withstand the power of the Lord.

Psalm 91:1-2
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!

This Bible verse from the Old Testament says it all. With God on your side, who can be against you? What foe can defeat the Creator? None. He is your fortress, your refuge, and the one who protects, provides and in whom you can trust.

Photo of the Day – Never Be Afraid To Trust An Unknown Future To A Known God By Holocaust Survivor Corrie Ten Boom

Never Be Afraid to Trust An Unknown Future To A Known God (Holocaust Survivor Corrie Ten Boom)“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God” – Corrie Ten Boom.

If you don’t know the story of Corrie Ten Boom, be sure to pick up the book “The Hiding Place” and learn about her amazing survival story during the Nazi Holocaust. As someone who has been through hell to an extent that we can not even fathom, this kind of faith will sure be a blessing to anyone who reads this quote.

If someone in her circumstances knows that God is in control, how can we, with our comfortable lives, deny it?

Bible Verse of the Day – Count It All As Joy When You Meet Trials and Tribulations, James 1:2-4 (New Testament)

Count it all as joy when you meet trails and tribulations (James 1:2-4).

An absolutely amazing photo. Joy comes from the heart, not from external circumstances.

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” – James 1:2-4

This is a truly amazing verse. It really boggles the mind when you think about how opposed to the natural order of things it is. Trials and Tribulations do not bring one joy, in the world. They bring suffering, complaining, bitching, if you will.

That is not how God would have us see things. Quite the opposite in fact. And that is what true maturity is.

Can Christians Embrace Horror? Scares, Thrills, Spills, Guts and Glory In Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Dead Space And Others

The Cross Repels Evil

The Cross repels evil. In the end, good always triumphs over the hellspawns of the underworld.

Can Christians embrace horror? Videogames like Dead Space, Silent Hill, and Resident Evil feature scares, thrills, spills, guts and glory (quite literally) as they charge gamers with overcoming demonic abominations of the highest order, and surviving a world that’s gone to hell.

Personally, one of my favorite genres is Survival Horror, however like metal music, full of demonic imagery, skulls and bones, gore-fiends and moshpit-loving violence-craving thrill seekers, the genre is often interpreteted to be inherently Satanic.

And yet one who is in the genre or a heavy partaker of it, understands that glorifying the underworld and its manifestations of violence, blood, guts, blasphemy and filth; is not always the case for all bands who go the metal route. Beyond that, those listerns who love the headbanging world; are not always doing so as a full embrace of the antichrist-position that often spills from the mouths of secular metal bands.

Horror is much the same way, with the exception that most created horror IS not glorifying the light in any way… a notion that Christian metal bands convey to those willing to listen; while keeping the grotesque and violent motifs that are staples of the genre… only they twist it so it points to the Cross and away from the Pit.

It is hard to make that argument when discussing horror in either film or in gaming however.

But it is my belief that embracing horror videogames is not a full-out endorsement of what most of the games preach throughout the majority of the duration of said adventure through hellish imagery.

In fact, to write horror off as nothing but a pure act of grotesque blasphemy and filth with no redeeming factors, is to vastly oversimplify it. It is true that some horror does just that with no redeeming qualities, but NOT all of it. And that mindset does a disservice and writes off an entire complex genre made up of hundreds of thousands of different tales, characters, stories and worlds.

Like in the metal realm, there are plenty of smart, intelligent, horror-themed videogames that have many redeeming qualities. I believe horror and the desire to be scared can actually run parallel to the beliefs we as Christians hold. “As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.”

Ultimately horror, in almost ALL cases, is about overcoming evil, savagery and blasphemous beings bent on delivering grotesque hell upon others. Beyond the striking and violent imagery, much like the Cross itself, is redemption and horrific stories of those who conquered the arms of death and lived to tell the tale.

Pyramid Head Represents Satan Artwork By Calisto Lynn

… Pyramid Head is an unforgettable Silent Hill character representing pure evil. Interpret it as Satan himself. Always there, constantly seeking whom he can devour.

In addition, a smartly told horror story, will intersperse many other elements that elevate it above a simple gore-fest. Silent Hill for example is a dive into psychological horror, where demonic sights and sounds unsettle the player, and try to suffocate you in fear. The story however is extremely deep, vastly open to interpretation, and is ultimately a tale of love, sacrifice, overcoming fear and triumphing over the evils of Hell… literally.

The opening of Silent Hill 2, for example, tells the tale of a man named James, who receives a letter from his wife. His deceased wife. In it she talks of their “special place”, a town called Silent Hill. He knows she is alive, dead people cannot write letters? Right? Read the rest of this entry »

Encouraging Quote of the Day – No Thing And No Person Can Make You Miserable Without Your Permission

Pure Joy Puppy

Now THIS puppy knows his victory in Christ! YEAH BABY YEAH!

“No thing and no person can make you miserable without your permission.” – Joyce Meyers

Remember that joy and happiness come from within. No one can take that from you. The Bible says to be joyful because of the victory that Christ has given you over death and the grave. No matter what happens in your life, you ultimately have the victory. Take control of your emotions and do not let your mind be miserable no matter the situation. Instead rejoice!
