My Brain is Going to Pop

Here are some thoughts and discussions that have been floating around our house in the last 2 weeks. If you're sick and tired of changing diapers and making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, come on over. I'll gladly change places with you for a day!
  • What is a Carnal Christian and can there be such a thing?
  • Quantum physics
  • Calvinism vs. Armenian ism
  • Limited Atonement vs. Unlimited Atonement
  • "Churchy" Christian vs. Real, honest Christian
  • Existentialism
  • Glorifying God
  • Prayer
  • Can you be saved if you just "Say the right words"? What about the verses that talk about "My sheep know My voice...." and "You shall know them by their fruit..."
  • The Metaphysics of Jesus

As if all that weren't enough, we're still discussing the "debate" our son had with the "Free Thinkers" last week. The non-believers in the room raised some good questions and also showed some inconsistencies in saying they were atheists. Things like: God doesn't exist, but He is: and then filled in the blank with a cuss word.

I'm still overwhelmed with projects and am worried about a couple things my kids are going through as well. So, if anyone knows how to stop a brainal ( a great word I just made up) explosion, PLEASE let me know! I could use a good laugh.


  1. Apply duct tape (also known as "duck" tape) to your eyes and wear a really thick helmet that covers your ears and has a secure chin strap. That should keep it from shooting out.

    Here's how it will all go down...

    You'll be watching TV (probably Jerry Springer) and you'll hear a noise that sounds like someone dropped a bunch of chicken livers on a linoleum floor from two or three stories high, but you'll be the only one who hears it. Your head will hurt for about a half hour. Take some Tylenol and then try to get a nap before Oprah comes on.

  2. Rog already gave you the advice I would have given. I grew up in a house where those kinds of discussions were the norm too and I hope we're headed in that direction with our own kids.

  3. Immediately pop in the handiest chick flick, the sappier the better. Turn the TV volume to "max". Sing along with any sappy love songs played during the film, loudly and the more out-of-tune, the better. Sigh dramatically during the kissing scene(s).

    Ignore any protests from male members of the household. Should they attempt to reclaim the TV by force, use advanced karate skills to beat them to a pulp.

    Return to singing loudly or quoting favorite portions. Make comments such as, "Oh, isn't that the most romantic thing ever?" or "He's just so CUTE!". Repeat the entire process as necessary. ;-)
