Are there mistakes in the Bible?

Should we say, "The Bible has no mistakes?"

Is the above statement misleading?

Do you think the above proposition is leading to the loss of church members?

Should we venture to address, within the Church, textual criticisms and as such give a more detail definition of inerrancy?

Can We Know Why We Do A Thing?
The question is the same as the title. Can we be sure of or know why we do x? Perhaps x is the act of helping an old lady across the street, or maybe x is intentionally entering into a debate. Can we know what our true intentions are? I'll provide context after some thoughts have been shared.

Miami Ink

Recently, I watched a few episodes of TLC's Miami Ink. For those who have not seen the show allow me to summarize. It centers around four tattoo artists, an apprentice, and their clientele. It's heavy on eastern philosophy and cultural relativism. The show presents tattoos not so much as body art obtained by people looking to display their rebellious side, but rather as acts of commeration and artful expression.

To my knowledge none of the people I know, especially from BCF, obtained a tattoo with such honorable intentions in mind. Many openly admitted they did it because it looked cool, or they thought it was sexy (which is debatable). There are many women who have succumbed to the fad of placing a tattoo, usually some type of tribal imagery, on their lower back. Men have opted to tattoo barbwire or tribal imagery around their biceps. Worse, I think, are those, men and women, who felt some uncontrollable urge (the only reasonable explanation) to mark the back of their neck with an icon or foreign symbol. Neither of these are likely to be desirable marks for them, say, around age 40 onward. Especially, in light of the fact, that the markings were obtained for the sake of coolness or sex appeal. These are not the type of cases exhibited on Miami Ink thus far. Yet, tattoing remains controversial for some, even if the intention behind the skin art is more noble.

Anyone have thoughts, positive or negative, they would like to share concering tattoos?

Disclaimer: This article is not intended to offened those with tattoos. If you have a tattoo for coolness or sex appeal and you disagree with my opinion...shoot, I'll listen.

Question: Natalee Holloway

Do you believe the Natalee Holloway investigation is receiving unfair media coverage compared to other like cases? Why or why not?

A Beloved Friend From The Past

Here is a dear friend of mine from high school who served in Iraq. I came across this picture of her one day while surfing the internet. She is active military. She is a nurse and I believe her husband is military police (MP). He may have gotten out of the service. I am not positive though. She is now stateside I believe. Posted by Picasa

Things you shouldn't do while the professor is lecturing

I now use paint to doodle when I get bored. The lectures are good but on day 8 after 64 hours of lecturing the mind begins to look for escape. I' m not sure what the image above says about my state of mind...
