If They Disagree, Fine Them

If you don’t get on board and call them by whatever “gender” they wish to put on today, you should be fined. Because tolerance.

Hours for iPhone

Go download Hours for iPhone and Apple Watch for free! I’ve always been bad at tracking time, something few people enjoy. Hours has, within a matter of a few days of use, worked it’s way into my flow and allowed me to keep track of my time on my new job at HLK.

Virtual Hosts and Mobile Development

0 Comments

Virtual hosts are such a great tool for web developers to test locally without losing their mind, but web development in 2015 involves testing on far more than a single machine. If your mobile iOS devices are on the same network, here is a simple trick.

  1. Go to System Preferences on your Mac.
  2. Go to the Network panel.
  3. You should see your IP address in here. Mine right now is 10.0.1.6.
  4. Go to Settings on your iOS device.
  5. Go to the Wi-Fi section.
  6. Tap the info icon on your current Wi-Fi network.
  7. Scroll down to the HTTP Proxy and tap Manual.
  8. Enter the IP address you found above into the Server field.
  9. Enter 80 into the Port field.
  10. Go to your browser of choice on the iOS device and go to your virtual host.

Simple enough for quickly testing your websites.

Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

Human Capital - Episode 1

This reminds me of videos and photos I saw as a young child at the national Holocaust museum in DC and as a young adult in Israel. And these “technicians” talk as if what they are doing is normal. Don’t just defund Planned Parenthood: shut them down. Arrest every one of these monsters and charge them like we did the Nazi’s that experimented on living and dead Jews. This must end, America.

I posted about this beautiful and useful app a couple months ago. Still use it to apply quick filters to my photos. Glad to see it bought by people who care about iPhone photography.

Game Changing Responses for a Hostile Culture

We went back up to Naperville over the weekend, after moving down to St. Louis a couple weeks ago. Of course that meant returning to Harvest Naperville to hear a guest preacher preach one of the most relevant messages I’ve heard in a while on a passage I had somehow skimmed over before.

And as he was saying these things in his defense, Festus said with a loud voice, “Paul, you are out of your mind; your great learning is driving you out of your mind.” But Paul said, “I am not out of my mind, most excellent Festus, but I am speaking true and rational words.

Acts 26:24-25

That stood out to me. How many of us have been told recently that we are out of our mind? It’s why I love the quote from Orwell:

In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

George Orwell

The truth is revolutionary. Many will say that we are out of our mind, but we are the ones speaking true and rational words.

The Bible and Same-Sex Marriage: 6 Common But Mistaken Claims

0 Comments

Claim 1: Jesus didn’t speak about same-sex marriage, so he’s at least neutral if not open to it. What Jesus doesn’t condemn, we shouldn’t condemn.

This is an argument from silence, but the silence doesn’t take place in a vacuum. Jesus addresses and defines marriage in Matthew 19:4–6 and Mark 10:6–9 using both Genesis 1:26–27 and Genesis 2:24 to parse it out. Here Jesus defines and affirms marriage as between a man and a woman, a reflection of the fact that God made us male and female to care for creation together. With this definition, same-sex marriage is excluded. Had Jesus wished to extend the right of marriage beyond this definition, here was his opportunity. But he didn’t take it.

Jesus never discussed same-sex marriage because the way he defined marriage already excluded it. He was not as silent on the topic as some claim.

The Gospel Coalition

An argument from silence. Know your logical fallacies.

This article has some great answers to the questions that, if you are a Christian, you have heard a few too many times.
