Should Rick Give Up Michonne to Save the Rest of His People? (The Walking Dead)

Posted by thethousandmarch on March 12, 2013 at 10:50 PM

I’m not a fan of zombie movies, or any other type of horror movie, that takes glee in showing people get killed. I don’t watch The Walking Dead to see people (even if they are undead) get their heads smashed, stabbed, or blown apart – I could do with much less of that on the show. What I like about The Walking Dead and post-apocalyptic stories, zombie stories being a subgenre, is how they can be parables f...

The Two Kingdoms of God and Christian Civil Engagement

Posted by thethousandmarch on November 11, 2012 at 1:45 AM

For Christians a proper understanding of the Gospel, especially in distinction to the law, is of the utmost importance. Of great secondary importance, especially in helping guide our civil and social engagement, is an understanding of the distinction between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of man. I’m no expert on Martin Luther’s doctrine of the two kingdoms, also called the two reigns of God. So, this is n...

Love Your Business Enemies?

Posted by thethousandmarch on March 18, 2012 at 9:05 PM

So this is a post I’ve been thinking about for a long time, and now that I’m about to start my business it’s about time I write down some thoughts.

I have no right to hate, no right to condemn anyone. I must forgive my enemies. Not, because there aren’t terrible people in this world who do terrible things. Not, because ...

Observations on Tim Tebow and 'Tebowing'

Posted by thethousandmarch on January 6, 2012 at 8:10 PM

Tim Tebow is Weird

As I said in my last post on Tim Tebow I really think that the reason that many people have a problem with him is that he is too positive, enthusiastic and transparent for our cynical and guarded society. He was born to missionary parents in a foreign country and was homeschooled and those kinds of experiences are g...

Are Stay-At-Home-Dads Sinners?

Posted by thethousandmarch on August 26, 2011 at 2:20 AM

I’ve recently become a stay-at-home-dad. I was “let go” from my job without warning despite the fact that I was regularly meeting my sales goals. Since I had been doing well my wife, a physical therapist, was able to cut back to only a few days of work a month – which she did mainly to keep up her license and pay h...

This post is partially in response to this blog post by Donald Miller: Stop being motivated by guilt.

Sacred Objects

Posted by thethousandmarch on September 28, 2010 at 8:45 PM

     Many westerners seem to be perplexed by what they view as an overreaction on the part of Muslims to such things as cartoons of Mohamed and the threat of burning the Qur’an. Some of us may also look at Hindus with disdain because they believe cows are sacred. However, a recent news article gave me some insight as to what we as westerners view as sacred.

The Prodigal Son's Brother

Posted by thethousandmarch on February 6, 2010 at 5:31 PM

In my last post I said that I was the prodigal son’s brother. In this post I will explain what I meant by that. First, for those who are unfamiliar with the story of the prodigal son let me briefly sum up. There was a rich man who had two sons. One of the sons told his dad to give him his inheritance. That son took his money an...

Legalist or Libertine

Posted by thethousandmarch on January 29, 2010 at 4:01 PM

What’s worse: legalism or antinomianism? Antinomianism is the belief that God’s grace frees Christians from the obligation of following his moral law. Legalism is the belief that we merit at least some part of our salvation through adherence to God’s moral law – and maybe a few o...
