Exodus 34:13 - “Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and cut down their Asherah poles.”
11 Hours of Driving
You think I’d just about pass out as soon as I get to my destination, but nope. I had to drink 4 energy drinks just to survive. I’m wired with no appetite, woop! Anyway, finally home in Topeka, KS home of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church, it’s literally right down the street.
I have spilled the ink over a bill, and so have blotted it till it can hardly be read; but this is quite another thing from having the debt blotted out, for that cannot be till payment is made. So a man may blot his sins from his memory and quiet his mind with false hopes, but the peace which this will bring him is widely different from that which arises from God’s forgiveness of sin through the satisfaction which Jesus made in His atonement. Our blotting is one thing; God’s blotting out is something far higher.
Okay, so it’s about 4:15 am and I just woke up with the reminder that the iPhone 5 keynote was released…yesterday. After reviewing the specs, features and newly designed phone I can say I am utterly disappointed in Apple. From what I’ve gathered, the company made the phone faster and bigger and is releasing a new set of headphones. Basically, the company that was known for being a step ahead of the competition is now a huge step backward. I was expecting this phone to have unheard of revolutionary features such as a built-in Lytro camera or a LED screen projector or something to make it completely unique.
All I have to say after watching that boring keynote is props to Samsung and HTC for beating Apple.
edit #1 - And to top it off, here are some of the most horrible slogans for this phone found directly on Apple’s website.
- "The biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone."
- “Thinner, lighter design. So much more than before. And so much less too.”
- “Ultrafast wireless. Connect to fast data networks. The world over.”
- “All new EarPods. Completely re-imagined from the sound up.”
- “Maps. Take a turn for the better.”
It sounds like someone important either died or got fired from Apple….oh wait.
Sometimes, I feel like in reality I’m mentally challenged, but everyone I know is too nice to tell me the truth.
