A Biblical Argument for Self-Defense

Recently I was pulled into a protracted debate on Facebook. I was basically told that I couldn’t even be taken seriously and was being absurd by trying to make a biblical defense of self-defense.

Prometheus: Ridley Scott is better than this.

I went to see Prometheus this past Sunday. I hunkered down in my seat, propped my feet up on the railing in front of me and got ready for a masterpiece from Ridley Scott. I absolutely LOVE the original Alien. The sequels were progressively less impressive, though enjoyable. But this would mark Ridley Scott’s return … Read more Prometheus: Ridley Scott is better than this.
