Has anyone seen this movie?
Well if you haven't then you have to. Absolutely awesome. Hate a couple of blasphemies but otherwise generally quite clean and well... just an awesome movie. Best original one for a while.

What do you guys think?

The Gospel, using U2

This is a pretty random post.

I bought a U2 cd while on our honeymoon and have been thrashing it. I have heard U2 lots before but I have really come to enjoy their music and I think they would have to be musically one of the greatest bands ever, well, for me anyway :-) I don't know if he would be what I or the Bible would call a Christian, but I will leave that between him and God.

It would be cool fun to do something a bit different and attempt to write a gospel message using titles of U2 songs mixed in. I have no idea whether anyone will bother but I challenge anyone to see how many U2 songs they can recognise in the gospel message. I suppose this would be the band to do it with because almost everyone knows U2.

Here it goes:

Back in the day when God made people, it was a beautiful day. But people decided to go their own mysterious ways and ignore what God had instructed them to. Ever since, man has continued walk on down the same path building towers to push open the window in the skies to be like God. Pride entered man's heart.

Thankfully a Saviour, Jesus Christ, came to stamp out man's pride (In the name of love). He came to teach you and I that some times you can't make it on your own. “Stuck in a moment you can't get out of” is our hearts anthem, we needed this Saviour to save us from our sin and take our penalty of death on Himself. New years day is when we try to get right with oursleves but we need to look to God to make us new people, a people with a new desire. Though I still haven't found what I am looking for, one day I will see what I have been looking for and that is a place where we can be one and whole, good and righteous where sin will not abound.

But we need to leave where the streets have no name, leave the desert in which we are lost and come home. “I will follow” should be our cry, follow Christ not just in word but in deed.

One day our miserable selves will be God's sweetest thing. We will be in elevation when Jesus returns and one day the saints are coming and we will join them to be with our King forevermore. God will either leave with or without you. Which will you choose?

Leave this vertigo and walk with our Maker.

How many U2 songs are in there?

I have no idea what to title this...

Wow, its been a month or so since I last posted something... hmmm. I look forward to having the internet a little more accessable.
Running thoughts, final was the boringest games ever. Not much football was played. The best game was the third place match where both teams seemed like they were simply having fun!

I am currently part way through No Doubt's sermon found here: and am enjoying it so far! Isn't it weird when we imagine what someone sounds like and then actually find out what they sound like LOL. Your preaching good No Doubt!

I have recently been informed that one of my favourite preachers "David Pawson" may be coming to my little home town sometime next year! Can't wait. He is in his 80's so I hope he can make it.

And my fingers are frozen at the moment typing on this keyboard; it happens to be winter here in NZ.
