Jesus vs. Satan-Computer Joke

Ha this made me laugh… (I know im a nerd)

Jesus vs Satan

Jesus and Satan have an argument as to who is the better programmer. This goes on for a few hours until they agree to hold a contest with God as the judge.

They set themselves before their computers and begin. They type furiously for several hours, lines of code streaming up the screen.

Seconds before the end, a bolt of lightning struck taking out the electricity. Moments later, the power is restored, and God announces that the contest is over. He asks Satan to show what he has come up with.

Satan is visibly upset, and cries, “I have nothing! I lost it all when the power went out.”

“Very well, then,” says God, “let us see if Jesus fared any better.”

Jesus enters a command, and the screen comes to life in vivid display, the voices of an angelic choir pour forth from the speakers.

Satan is astonished. He stutters, “But how?! I lost everything, yet
Jesus’ program is intact! How did he do it?!”

God chuckles, “Jesus saves.”

O Praise Him

I was reading 1 Kings and about times when King Solomon would be on his knees with his hands raised to the heavens just praying and singing out to God. I watched this video to Davids classic song “O Praise Him” and it made me realize thats how we should be. Not distracted by others around us but focused on worshiping God no matter what the circumstances. Pretty sweet video…watch it :)

Music News-Part 2

I wish there was one site that provided everything you wanted to know about Christian music! Everything out there is so scattered and out of date…

Keep your eye on these artist…

Steve Fee
His newest album “Burn for You” is a top seller on Independent Bands.com. He’s on tour so check his site.

Kristian Stanfill
This guy is one of my favorite worship leaders. He is still yet to update his site or add any songs to his myspace. I really like the song Beautiful Jesus off his new EP entitled “Hello”. Hopefully he will release more soon…

Tim Hughes
His latest album “Holding Nothing Back” has been out for awhile… though I thought it was worth mentioning…

Jeremy Riddle
Recently released his new album “Full Attention“. Personally, I think he sounds a lot like Shane and Shane. I really enjoy how he combines a choir and distinct sound into many of his songs.

Music News-Part 1

Alright let me show you what I got…

hillsong-united-all-of-the-above.jpg

Hillsong United
Hillsong United has finally released “All of the Above” in the US. Now good luck on finding the CD+bonus DVD (For some reason stores only have the CD) Personally, I would buy the CD and start rocking out!…everything on the DVD is pretty much on YouTube anyways. But if your absolutely desperate for the bonus DVD I would order it from Australia. Now I have had the album for quite sometime…months before it was released in the US, and I must confess this album is unbelievable…so get it.

Also, Hillsong will be releasing “Saviour King” sometime in July. Only reson I mention this is because they did do a couple songs from United’s “All of the Above“. I think its interesting to hear the different ways they play the same song.

David Crowder Band
The anticipation! Other then a new band member and a picture theres not much to be heard… Check the story out at Davids Xanga. Though i did find a YouTube clip with some poor quality concert recoding. It doesn’t quench much, but it gives you a taste. I’m excited, its going to be a great album…

Hillsong United Concert…

O ya…
Its quite funny. My friend an I just happened to go to the bathroom where the band was located.
Check this out. Joel Houston and myself…

Hillsong United Concert

I love Hillsong United. Some friends and I flew up to Chicago and saw them Live. Better yet Brooke Fraser was there with them :) It was truly an expearence I will never forget. They are all such passionate worshipers with an unbelievable vision. Heres some pics…yaa we were pretty close.

Tech News

Its been awhile since I have posted…but a lot has happened in the tech world. (I realize this news will be a few days old) Let me give you what I have and some thoughts…

Microsoft Surface
surface.jpg

Microsoft launched a multitouch surface computing device. This rite here will blow your mind. It is by far the most incredible piece of technology out. This I believe is the future…the possibilities are truly endless. Granted, it has a price tag of somewhere around 10 grand and is mainly targeted for major companies, but I believe it will find itself within all our living rooms in the next 10 years. The videos really justify any words I can say so check them out at

Apple iPhone
iphone-june-29-big.jpg

It is official… June 29. What else must I say? Its going to revolutionize the way we look at cell phones. Apple just released 3 new iPhone commercials that are quite clever. I hope I can get one…

MacBook Pro

This is personally the biggest thing I really care about. I have been following closely to when they are going to release the new MacBook Pros. As I am currently running on a dieing 5 year old Dell Inspiron 5150. Shes done good and had a good life…but its time to move on.

Now sources say it will be released June 5th…or maybe at the WWDC. But who knows with Apple? Most importantly I hope it will be a major update… not like the minor refurbish done on the MacBooks. A slim design with an LED backlight and Santa Rosa chipset would be beautiful. A Blue Ray drive would be nice too… but thats really pushing it :) The time is coming so all i can do is wait and see…

I get most of my information from Mac Rumors. This site should defiantly be at the top of your bookmark list.

Graduation 2007

grad.jpg

Yes!!! I graduated highschool…Next stop Cedarville University!

Update

So much in life happening! But i have lots of stuff I want to share…give some time


the short

Hellooo... My name is Cameron and I have started using this little thing called WordPress. I have a passion for God and serving Him. I also love music and art. I will be attending Cedarville University and double majoring In graphic design and youth ministry. I hope to use this place to share with you whats on my mind and what I find in the internet world. I have a lot to share, though I am a little slow on the posting part. So keep checking back and hopefully ill keep this thing updated.

something quick to chew on

"Otherness gives us a sense that God is so pure, matchless and unique that no one else and nothing else even comes close. He is altogether glorious—unequalled in splendor and unrivalled in power. He is beyond the grasp of human reason—far above the reach of even the loftiest scientific mind. He is inexhaustible, immeasurable and unfathomable—eternal, immortal and invisible. The highest mountain peaks and the deepest canyon depths are just tiny echoes of His proclaimed greatness. And the blazing stars above, the faintest emblems of the full measure of His glory." -Matt Redman
