Think Christian posted an interesting interview with N.T. Wright about Heaven and the end of the world.  It’s an interesting viewpoint because it provides a different approach than the ever-popular Left Behind series (many people seem to forget that this represents a theory and not the absolute biblical truth), and because it actually resonates pretty well with the Bible.

But ultimately does it really matter who’s right.  When I jump around the Bible, I tend to skip Revelations and the latter part of Daniel, primarily because they deal with the whole end-of-the-world thing.  Apocalyptic literature, to me, is a jumbled mess of metaphors, symbols, literal truth, parables, and Lord knows what else.  For anyone to say that they can actually decipher it all would be incredibly arrogant, to say the least.   There’s just no way.  There are too many theories, too much detail, and, quite frankly, not enough insight on our part, because we all see things from a skewed perspective.  Let’s not forget that no one ever saw Jesus coming, even though there were prophecies about him for hundreds of years, because everyone was looking for the wrong Messiah.

So I say “To Hell with eschatology.”  All I know is that whatever the details, the Bible makes it pretty clear that we win.  That’s good enough for me.

I couldn’t resist posting this video. When you watch it you’ll know why.

I think he’s reading a little too much into scripture.

Think Christian gets the credit for this find.

Movies I Want to See

I’ve been watching a lot of trailers from IMDB lately, and I’m going to share some of the films I am looking forward to seeing this coming year:

Cloverfield – A monster movie with a clever twist – it’s filmed from the perspectives video cameras and cell phones. Plus it’s made by J.J. Abrams, of Lost and MI3 fame.

Funny Games – Looks a bit like a typical suspense film, but only a little quirkier.  I like quirky.

Stop Loss –  A soldier who finishes his tour in Iraq is called to redeploy.  A look at the Iraq war that really could go either way.

Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian – The first movie was awesome, and I have no doubt the second will be  awesome as well.

You Don’t Mess With The Zohan – Gotta love Adam Sandler, especially with the new look.

Vantage Point – This looks like an awesome thriller.  The preview reminds me of 24.

Kung Fu Panda –  It’s got the voice of Jack Black as a Panda.  That fights.  That’s about all I need.

Get Smart –  I’ve never seen the show, but the movie looks funny.

The Dark Knight – I absolutely loved the latest Batman movie, and this one looks like it’s sticking with the motif of a darker, less comical Batman.

Valkyrie – Starring Tom Cruise, this tells the story of an attempt by German soldiers to assassinate Adolph Hitler.

Happy Late Holidays…

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged anything, but I wanted to wish everyone a late Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, and an early Happy New Year. I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and made sure to stop shopping for at least a little bit in order to relish in the real reason for the season – that to us, a Savior was born, and his name was Jesus.

Old Videos…

As you can tell from my last post, I’ve been going through a lot of old random stuff of mine.  I just ran across these two old videos I put on Google Video.  The first video is a “documentary” of when Daniel Buhler, Rodney Mayfield, and I drove from Modesto to Vancouver, Canada, and then back again over the course of five days.  We decided to take a video camera with us and document our crazy adventures.  The result is probably not interesting or funny to anyone except us, and the video is a tad over two hours long, so I can’t imagine anyone wanting to watch it, but the option is there, should anyone chose to.

This is a separate video that was made on the same trip.  If you got through the first ten minutes of the other video, you’ll know that Sarah (my wife-to-be in 4 days!!!!!) gave us a small copy of Pride & Prejudice and we promised to read excerpts.  Well, we did, and then we took a video camera and had other people read excerpts.  What came out of that was a video of a wide variety of people reading the first 50 or so pages of the book.  We ended up giving it to Sarah as a Christmas gift.  It’s not quite as long, and it’s kind of fun.  You might even see yourself in it!
