Step Into My Mind…

Time Whispers December 31, 2010

With the New Year RIGHT around the corner, I figured this would be an appropriate time to share a little poem I wrote. Also, this blog is dedicated in memory of my dear friend and brother in Christ, Haig Diradourian, who passed away on December 23, 2010. You are deeply loved and missed. I write in hopes that you will all learn from Haig’s life and death and appreciate your own lives and the lives of others around you… (more…)

Wow Michael Buble is AMAZING and I have been listenting to his songs over and over again all throghout the day, for the past few days. I can’t get enough. Please check him out and fall in love with his music like I have. I love his style and he is a great performer as well. His voice is perfection. Listen to his cover of Frank Sinatra’s song…

 

My New Obsession November 5, 2009

I honestly hate to admit it, but oh Good God, I have a new obsession. Lord help me, this may be unhealthy. LOL
I was never interested before, well not to the point of actually going to watch it in the theatres, I even waited until it came out on DVD to actually rent and watch it.
You know what I’m talking about, TWILIGHT!

Declan Galbraith…this guy is one of my new favorite artists. He was seriously born to sing. I think this is his purpose in life. Some people are great singers, but some people are born singers and are meant to sing. I know music, and this guy, he’s absolutely amazing. He has great vibrato and he has a great range. Hope you enjoy his stuff, go check him out…

Before you label me a heretic, actually read what I have to say. =)

old-agejesus-on-cross

I have been thinking about this a lot lately. After one Sunday service when Artur (our College/Career Pastor) said that Jesus didn’t have to die such a horrible death on the cross, He could have just died of old age. That made me think…

Really? Could Jesus have actually died of old age and that be sufficient enough to cover the sins of all humanity in the past, present, and future?

How interesting would the story have been if we read in the Bible that Jesus lived until age 85 and died of natural causes and was then laid in a tomb and after 3 days He rose again and conquered death? Is that really sufficient? Was His purpose here to simply die or was it to be the Suffering Servant as well? Is His “blood” that we sing about all the time “that makes us white as snow” simply referring to Him dying or did His blood actually have to be spilt?

So, the question here that I grapple with is whether Jesus’ death alone was enough, or did He have to suffer and did His body have to break and bleed for us as well? (more…)
