Why Was Jesus Baptized? (Or Why Baptizing Infants Isn’t Heresy)

baptism3 Classes started up again for me this week, yesterday to be specific. One of the classes I attended yesterday is called Reformation Europe. It's a look at the various reformations (because there was more than one) that went on during this period in the life of the church, as well as the state.

When God Was Found In A Cave

cave(via) Yesterday at church I saw a video about hope in the new year. There was nothing particularly wrong with it. Standard Christian video fare.

‘Punk Rock Jesus’ Wraps Up World Tour

A few months ago I featured a new comic book called Punk Rock Jesus. In case you don't remember, the series was based on this premise,
The book covers 14 years in the life of Chris, who is born out of a modern-day equivalent to the immaculate conception: Pieces of DNA are scraped off the Shroud of Turin, fused with an egg and are inserted into a virgin girl found via nationwide audition.
Well, it seems that...
