Calvin And Hobbes Mashup With Star Wars [Images]

We may have an issue with our love for Calvin & Hobbes (see here and here), but we have yet another visit into the world of mashing up Calvin & Hobbes with another universe. (That’s a lot of ChurchMag links) This time is Star Wars and honestly, it’s super cute. The artist is Brian Kesinger who has a ton of other drawings that you really should check out here. This maybe half of them, so go to the site and see what else he has. The is a great example of how we can exercise our creativity muscles....

‘This Is A Very Consistent Show’: Max Greenfield On CBS’s ‘The Neighborhood’ & Cedric The Entertainer

(CBS Local)– Max Greenfield and Cedric the Entertainer have built something special on the CBS series “The Neighborhood.” The comedy about new neighbors trying to get along in Los Angeles has allowed Greenfield to explore what it’s like to perform in front of a studio audience and learn from one of the best in Cedric. “He is so involved in the show in the writing and creative side of it. I know a lot of people think I’m funny on Twitter, but I don’t approach the work in terms of how can I do thi...

Thanksgiving of Horror: Breaking Down the Many Movie References in the Latest Episode of ‘The Simpsons’

Even after three decades, The Simpsons is still finding ways to keep things fresh. The latest example takes the long-running “Treehouse of Horror” and repeats it just a month after this year’s proper “Treehouse” episode, but with a Thanksgiving setting. The episode begins with Marge introducing three spooky tales of horror and warning the audiences not to let their kids watch – just like in the good old days. The thing is, as gimmicky as the episode seems to be, it is also one of the best h...

Not Just Me and My Bible: What ‘Sola Scriptura’ Doesn’t Mean

In August of 1981, a young Swedish doctor named Hans Rosling faced a puzzling dilemma. Numerous people in the village of Nampula, Mozambique, were suffering from inexplicable cases of paralysis. At first, he suspected an outbreak of polio, but after he conducted tests, the virus was surprisingly eliminated as a possibility. With the nation on the edge of civil war, Rosling worried that the cause might be much worse — chemical or biological warfare. After weeks of research with an internatio...

How Calvin Responded When Luther Went Full-Out Luther

I n 1544, Heinrich Bullinger was pastoring in Zurich when he and his colleagues there fell afoul of Martin Luther—hardly the first or the last to do so. Luther had written another treatise against their view of the Lord’s Supper and had employed his too-typical fire. Bullinger wrote John Calvin in nearby Geneva to ask his counsel and Calvin responded with a letter than models respect amid disagreement. *** I hear that Luther has at length broken forth in fierce invective, not ...

‘Calvinists’ Before Calvin? Predestination in the History of the Church

ABSTRACT: Luther’s and Calvin’s Catholic contemporaries argued against Reformed doctrine because it disagreed with the teaching of Rome. The Reformers argued, first, that their doctrines agreed with Scripture, but they also appealed to church history. Predestination and the other doctrines of grace were, according to them, not novel teachings, but teachings held as far back as the church fathers — especially Augustine. For our ongoing series of feature articles by scholars for pastors...

Did God Give Man The “Right To Bear Arms?”

A.A.J. DeVille. If God had granted such a right, one would expect it to show up in, say, Scripture or in the broader Christian tradition. But in fact the entire language of rights is a modern novelty. None of the biblical writers knew such rights, nor the Fathers of the Church, nor the late medieval and early modern philosophers and theologians. Knowing this history, the great Catholic moral philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre wrote, “there are no such rights, and belief in them is one with belief ...

‘See You Yesterday’ Review: The Time Travel Romp Takes on a Timely Twist

Ever since Back to the Future hit theaters in 1985, time travel has become, for lack of a better phrase, old news. Time travel and all of its quirks and reality-altering consequences have become a part of the cultural language, with even the casual moviegoer knowing what happens if you step on a butterfly in the past. But See You Yesterday, which comes from Spike Lee protégé Stefon Bristol, adds a fresh and timely twist to the well-worn time travel movie. See You Yesterday follows CJ (Eden D...

SO LATE SO SOON: fun, genre-celebrating SF for young readers (of all ages!)

[Harry Tynan posts on our forums as Moose Malloy. Earlier this week, he messaged me about his fun, self-published kid's book, written as a series of bedtime stories for his kid (a tradition I'm very fond of -- it's the origin story of The Borribles!). The book is so much fun that I invited him to write a short introduction and choose a excerpt for your edification.

How a Google office became a sticky-note art gallery

At one of Google’s offices, windows have become canvases...for art made from sticky notes. The “pixel art” is not only a way to decompress after a long day of work, but also a way to make the office personal—and a lot of fun, too.The decorations all started when a neighbor wanted to say hello. A company located across the street used brightly colored sticky notes to spell out a greeting in their windows. Googlers decided to join in on the fun and reply with art of their own. Their initial respon...

Did Jesus Go to Hell After He Died?

“Christ’s Descent into Hell,” by Follower of Hieronymus Bosch Some versions of the Apostles’ Creed say Jesus descended into hell. Did he? For centuries, Christians have proclaimed, “… he [Jesus] descended into hell…” Other versions of the creed say “the grave.” Why do we say those words at all, and what are the implications of one versus the other? This brief post is only an introduction to the matter. I’ll present the main relevant biblical texts, a brief overview of the primary i...

Waking from a Trance

Mmm: Nothing, except perhaps the beauty of imagination, is sacred here. Watterson dissolves the boundaries of highbrow and lowbrow art. The comic’s freedom is confined—it’s not totally random—yet the depths it can go to feel fathomless all the same. Few other strips allow themselves such vastness. via Lithub They aren’t wrong.

His Hymns Make Souls Feel Whole: Horatius Bonar (1808–1889)

If you could choose a century and a country, not to live in, but to visit in order to listen to preaching, what would it be? A case could be made for the sixteenth century if you enjoy Geneva, and Calvin is a hero to you. There is certainly something attractive about London in the seventeenth century — imagine hearing John Bunyan, Thomas Watson, John Owen, and dozens of others — some of them preaching within a few minutes’ walk of each other. Or perhaps you would prefer to be there two cen...
