So what if he's not tall, dark and handsome.

16 Reasons Why Jack Skellington Would Be The Perfect Boyfriend

We all love everything Disney, especially around the holidays. One of my favorite movies to watch for Halloween and Christmas is hands down, “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Jack and Sally’s love story gives all of us some serious relationship goals. Sally is definitely one lucky lady and here are a few of the many reasons why!

1. He's ambitious.

This is a man who knows what he wants. I mean the guy stole Christmas to fulfill his dream! Granted there was that whole kidnapping debacle, but let's not think about that.

2. He's a sharp dresser.

Just look at those outfits. How many guys have you dated who are that well put together all the time?

3. He's a King!

Seriously, this is a no-brainer. He's not a prince like those Disney boys; this man is a king in his own right, ladies. He doesn't need a lady to get his crown, and he doesn't pretentiously wear one around all the time.

4. He's a hero.

Not only did he save Sally and Sandy Claws, but he also saved Christmas, even if it was his fault in the first place. Don't forget he also took out Oogie Boogie in the process, saving children everywhere from nightmares.

5. His dog.

Don't lie, you know Zero is cute. He gives you some serious dog envy.

6. He knows how to throw a party.

Look at that intro scene! Yassss everyone rejoice! The Pumpkin King is here

to grace us all with his presence!

7. There is a Hot Topic collection with his face on it.

Hot Topic, which is already full of clothing featuring your favorite Disney characters, now has "The Nightmare Before Christmas." You can buy an entire wardrobe and accessories of a wide variety with Jack's face on it. Major plus, it won't be as weird as you putting your real man's name or picture on a shirt.

8. He can sing and act.

Danny Elfman really did Jack justice with those vocals.

9. He can admit when he is wrong.

I think everyone can agree that we could all learn a thing or two from that.

10. He's intelligent.

This isn't a man who would refuse to ask for direction, ladies. He assembled an entire science lab just to understand Christmas magic.

11. He knows how to delegate.

There is only so much Jack Skellington to go around. He didn't exactly make Christmas all by himself! He definitely couldn't go get Sandy Claws along with preparing for Christmas in two months time!

12. You wouldn't get bored.

Jack knows when he needs a change. He also knows when it's time to throw that idea right out the window, thankfully.

13. He could scare away all of your crazy exes.

That guy who is still texting you six months after the fact? That won't last long with Jack!

14. He's loyal.

Seriously, don't mess with his friends. Just don't.

15. He will tell you how he feels.

It took him a bit to catch up to what we already knew and kept poor Sally feeling defeated for no reason. When he finally realized it, he let Sally know how he felt as soon as he had the chance.

16. He's romantic.

The man really has a way with words!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween everyone!

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes

I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

An open letter to my father

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
