"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use."
"I wonder how far Moses would have gone if he'd taken a poll in Egypt? What would Jesus Christ have preached if he'd had taken a poll in Israel? Where would the Reformation have gone if Martin Luther had taken a poll? It isn't polls or public opinion of the moment that counts. It is right and wrong and leadership--- men with fortitude and honesty, and a belief in the right that makes epochs in the history of the world".

Several years back Fish Without Feet Graphic Design
and another CCAS'er started an endeavor to create a card game. Some of you may have seen samples of what the cards will closely resemble if you have looked at my artwork on here or my website. Though it has many elements of Christianity, it will not be a bible thumping, preaching type of game. It is our attempt to give the people who love to game, something they dont have to question the morality of.
With that in mind,… Continue

God has been blessing my...HIS business. I am continuing to get new work. What is even better, is that work is following with residual work. He has provided me with the program I had been wanting, as well as many other things as I continue my trek not just in the business but in school as well. This past week one of my returning customers gave me the chance to color a page for a pin up to be put into an ongoing IMAGE comic. Of course you can imagine how hard it was to not get excited on the… Continue

God is good in all he does. I have always struggled with doing things my way, or trusting on my own abilities first. Well I feel God has asked that take a step of faith. There are several items, including a scanner, (since mine went down) that I am going to need as I pursue his will in my life with my art and writing. The cost of these items reaches close to $1500. This is something I was planning to just save for and get on my own. And it may be that God still has that planned. But he has… Continue

On a rather emotion filled ride home from getting my wife's children, God placed a rather powerful realization on my heart. My wife had went through a divorce several years ago. Her husband had made her and her kids the victims of adultery. The children do not know the events that took place of course, but none the less feel the effects. They were missing their daddy, and it made for a heart breaking hour trip home.
About halfway through the trip my wife leaned over to me and said,… Continue

Everyone knows the story of Jonah. However I think there is a much bigger picture, beyond the fish and Nineveh. In Jonah 1:1-2 it says, "The word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, "Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me.'" (NASB) In the first two verses God is very clear about WHO he is sending. He specifically called upon Jonah. The thing about this is that Jonah was neither the only prophet at the time, nor in… Continue
