“On The Shores of Babylon” A Message From My Favorite Band

I have a favorite band. That has always been difficult for me to say. I have always loved such a wide variety of music that I could never pick a favorite. Now I can say this with confidence, Switchfoot is my favorite band. Switchfoot is an alternative Christian rock band from San Diego.

“Christian by faith, not by genre” has been their motto. What I love about these guys is that they couple solid, deep, and positive lyrics, with top notch alternative rock/folk/metal sound. Their music is played on both mainstream rock stations and Christian radio stations as well. At first, they would not play at Christian conferences or churches, because they wanted to take their message to the world.

Trust in Him

As we grow older and mature throughout our lives, there’s no doubt that at one point or another we will come across situations that challenge our faith. We often seek answers from the universe when in fact we should turn our faith to God and place our trust in Him. “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.” 1 John 5:14. Confiding yourself in God will always guide you in the right path. God tests our belief in Him through trials. They can range from being mild to severe but at the end of the day, we learn from these outcomes and experiences that we must fully entrust ourselves to Him.

Why Guilt Is…A Good Thing

When I typed in why guilt is… into the Google search bar the top results were: why guilt is bad, why guilt is good, why guilt is unhealthy, why guilt is better than shame, and why guilt is pointless. So what do you think about guilt? For me the search results say something troubling about our country when four out of five auto-fill answers (which happen to be the most searched questions) justify a lack of guilt. But how do guilt and Christianity relate?

“The Unknown God”

Nearly 2,000 years ago a Christian missionary named Paul brought the gospel to one of the world’s greatest and most impressive cities, Athens. He shared his message in the synagogue and in the agora (marketplace). His message was radical … in fact a repudiation of the very things that the city was founded on… pagan gods like the goddess Athena, the patron goddess after whom the city was named and all the other gods whose temples dominated the landscape. In fact he challenged everything that they held sacred… all their institutions and rituals and practices.

To Go or Stay

We were having an argument in the airport or should I say a disagreement? I would guess that other married folks traveling in airports have experienced this same phenomenon. We were at the end of a three week mission trip (tired) and had a 5 hour layover in Istanbul, Turkey before boarding the next long flight home. Michele wanted to go outside the airport and explore (involving several unknowns), and I wanted to stay inside and watch airplanes. In the end I caved and we went and had a good time. Michele even purchased a pair of shoes. I was a little stressed on the way back, however, as the time for the next flight was getting to close for me. Upon arrival and looking at the departure board, I saw that our flight had been delayed for 3 and 1/2 hours which I instantly knew would cause us to miss our connecting flight in Chicago. We went from desk to desk finally reaching the right person, but by that time no seats on other connecting flights were available. We were forced to spend another night when we were ready to be home. The thought crossed my mind that if we had not gone out of the airport we would have had a better chance of finding a connecting flight!
