Highlite: Romans 4, Dinner at Tracy’s
Lowlite: twinge of tiredness, sore tendons

It’s been a splendid day. Only one class today do to cancelation of the other. In the class I did have, the professor unexpectedly provided a guest speaker due to his absence. Oh, the United Nations… what a tangled yet oddly tantalizing organization. Idealism wrapped around humanism and political maneuvering. Some noble goals, but I think it fails to live up to any higher purpose due to negligance of The Absolute.

I bought a few poetry books today. I’ve got a few which I’ve largely been forced to buy for poetry classes. Two of the books I bought today serve the same purpose, yet I got to choose myself. I purchased a T.S. Elliot book as well. Talented and includes aspects of Christianity in his works. I glanced through a few of the poems and look forward to seeing more.

Dinner happened at Tracy’s apartment tonight. Yay for Tracy’s pasta and Bunny Track’s ice cream! Seriously. Good stuff. I enjoyed seeing my friends there and wish the time lasted longer.

Romans 4 was our Bible study this week. It reveals an amazing amount of things about faith especially when viewed as part of the overall argument Paul is building in Romans. Interesting crossreferences and tangents include Hebrews 11, I John 4, and Genesis 15.

ApologetiX – Adam Up – Look Yourself information and meaning

ApologetiX is releasing a new single off their forthcoming album “Adam Up”. The following information was available in their most recent email update and discussing the song, who the parody is of, and its meaning and relation to lead singer and lyricist J. Jackson.

“Look Yourself,” the first single from the upcoming ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band) CD, Adam Up, is the story of one man’s salvation experience and the obstacles he encounters as he attempts to share his newfound faith with family and friends. The song is a parody of controversial rapper Eminem’s Grammy-winning number-one hit, “Lose Yourself,” from the movie 8 Mile. As Eminem’s original is loosely an account of his own rise as a rapper, so ApologetiX lead singer and lyricist, J. Jackson, says his parody is largely autobiographical.
