I have to give Campus Crusade for Christ credit for this idea first.
Website on a business card. For Campus Crusade for Christ, during Halloween in Athens, we passed out business cards of a Crusade website. I am not sure how successful that was…
But this week I passed out business cards with my church’s website on it. I preached the sermon at my church on Sunday….so I wanted my friends to get a chance to listen, so I posted the link on a card and passed it out.
What is funny is that this time, it worked. People who knew me wanted to go to the church website and listen to me.
This week was my “Spring Break,” I took a class that still had me do some work this week though.
Anyways, next week starts 2 more classes so I will be doing three classes online and I am used to only doing 1 or 2, it will be a lot of work!
Anyways, this week I’ve been reading lot of religious articles:
Most religious groups in USA have lost ground, survey finds.
This is the most secular culture of America ever. Most humanistic, relativistic, and post-modern.
var articleheadline = “Belief and the brain’s ‘God spot'”;
Belief and the brain’s ‘God spot’
This one is an interesting one. One one hand no man is without excuse, but on the other hand, no one is righteous, not one.
This is true!
God Will Provide — Unless the Government Gets There First
It is sad but true, the Government is America’s “Savior” in a lot of ways.
More Americans say they have no religion
But I have read non-religious articles as well:
Ultra-High-Power Lithium-Ion Batteries – future batteries could charge in ten seconds
I need to tell my step-dad this! He eats way too much salt on everything!
NBC Stars Whimper About Jon Stewart’s Skewering of CNBC
This is a funny website, but the discussion continued as Cramer joined Stewart on the Daily Show last night. Go to comedycentral.com and see the full interview. i give Stewart props on this one.
Wolfram Alpha Computes Answers To Factual Questions. This Is Going To Be Big.
This should be intriguing, if it is not very accurate it will still be very funny to see the wrong answers this website may or may not produce.
If you ever want a great website designed cheaply see me!
I am your man!
Besides my emails, Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter profiles:
Most of these websites send me email subscriptions (so I don’t access their web page directly very often but I do read the articles in the emails) sometimes I click on a link in the email that leads me to their site.

Has anyone heard of the site Akatoo.com ? I am a member. It is a neat website. I am enjoying it so far. On this website, you can ask questions and answer them. It is awful like Yahoo answers, except this is a lot better for several reasons. Primarily because on Akatoo you can win prizes for answering questions and for inviting people to join. Also every time you answer a question, you are donating money to great causes. I have found that Akatoo is a more collegiate community than Y! answers.
Anyways for me, I have been able to practice “being ready” to share and defend my faith online through helping people on Akatoo by sharing Truth/ God’s Word in my answers. On this quest to share the Truth, I have ran into a lot of strange beliefs that people have about God, faith and life.
On this site I am learning a lot about people in general but specifically how strange and weird some world views, values, and beliefs that these “educated” folks have. For example, the belief in a higher power who hit the start button for evolution. The belief that Jesus did not exist AT ALL. Some people who actually think truth is relative….other random junk…
It has been fun posting and soundly like i am smart….I actually won an Ipod shuffle already and am going for a Nano next time.
In my free time I like to play around on Adobe software and HTML. I actually selfishly purchased CS3 (WebMaster/Design Premium Edition) software last September. I have built a few of websites for profits and some just fro fun:
I helped with other websites, but that is my background so far…
