It all started… Read More Guest Post: How Anime Drew Me Closer to the Lord

While I absolutely love Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen, the OVAs that relate Kenshin’s bloody backstory, I’ve always found the ending of the series odd. No major spoilers here, except to say that after that happened, that which changed the course of Kenshin’s life and shook the very core of who he was, he continues to slay… Read More Change Takes Time, Right, Kenshin and Sasuke?
I have a lot of anime DVDs sitting on my bookshelf (you can see some of them here, and at the same time enter our contest if you’d like, too!).

Beyond the obvious gore and sexualization that is prevalent in much anime, there is probably one anime fundamental that bothers most Christians who are fearful of exposing their children to thoughts that might undermine their Christian faith: Eastern philosophy. While modern Western thinking is arguably based in post-Enlightenment secularism as much as it is in… Read More Enjoy the Ride!
None of us want to suffer. In the west especially, there’s seldom any good seen in suffering, only hallow “silver linings” that we use to encourage those going through struggles.
