Oh Doubters, let's go down

My name is Dave Daugherty. I live in Swartz Creek, Michigan and I'm newly and happily married. This blog is primarily a record of the things I think about and enjoy about pop culture and God. Enjoy.

When we stop seeing sin as rule-breaking and start seeing it as sowing chaos and discord, then our confession and our struggle stop being legalistic. This is how we begin to hate sin for its own sake and not only out of frustration.

Things that fascinate me.

There is a little known evangelical crossroads where tried and true protestant fanaticism meets conspiracy theorists of the reptilian-overlords-control-congress variety and the little world created there is something to behold.  You sink into those forums and your apt to find thoughtful contemplation of the complexity of the spiritual world next to Blood Moon prophecies and assurances that our homosexual antichrist President has plans to persecute us all with microchips and mutated blood pathogens.  It’s like the most entertaining bits from pentecostalism, fire and brimstone baptists, and Dianetics have collided into one big cluster of nuts, and I love it.

Materialism has more restrictions than spiritualism. Mr. McCabe thinks me a slave because I am not allowed to believe in determinism. I think Mr. McCabe a slave because he is not allowed to believe in fairies.
