Wildlight Returns

Salutations.

Recently, I have felt God pushing me in a new, yet old direction.  And the short version of this story ends in “I shall return to drawing Wildlight comics in the near future.”  The longer version contains some interesting details for those who wish to know more, out of love for the character or just curiosity about the direction of a fellow writer and artist.

We Need Jesus

 

Recently, I watch a YouTube video where one person interviewed the other about his emotional well state.  This gentleman battled depression and a number of related issues his entire life.  Through this half hour video, I shook my head.  This guy had so many questions but so few answers.  His friend offered a few suggestions, but none offered true solutions.  I knew the answer.

Get It Right

For the last two decades, Christianity has come under increasing fire from those who would like to see it torn from our country’s DNA.  In this war, opponents have spread much misinformation about God, the Bible and faith itself.  Over a period of time, these half truths and lies become so ingrained in our culture, that even those who profess to follow Jesus often say things that sound great to American ears, but betray the message of the Gospel.  I ran across an example recently.

Natural Ethics

Recently, in my Twitter feed, I saw an article headline reading that a man claimed that pedophilia was natural. Therefore, it should be made legal. I did not bother to click on it. So, it could quite possible fall under the category of “fake news.” However, even this headline alone brings up a topic we see over and over again.
