Fake Christians, Fake Music

I have no idea who these people are.  The reason I don't know who they are is because their disingenuity is visible from outer space.  You can see the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids of Giza, and the falseness of these people's faith and art from o...

Doubt Needs a Doubt

25 May 2020 1 minute read 0 comments Nathan Payne

For years, I wondered about the meaning of the phrase "faith needs a doubt."  I asked somebody about it once, and they explained that without a doubt to overcome, faith can not exist.  In order to believe, it is necessary to have unbelief, and overco...

A Pre-Emptive Indictment of Postmodernism

24 May 2020 2 minute read 0 comments Nathan Payne

I've been on a Shostakovich kick lately, which is the best way to put it, since it in no way implies I am familiar with his work.  I'm not.  But his story is interesting.  He was engaged in a nearly-lifelong fight against Stalinist/Soviet censorship,...

Everybody is a cinematographer these days, but nobody can write.  Everyone is a master of graphic design, source code implementation, sound-file production (not necessarily music), video editing, and meme warfare, but nobody knows which "your" to use...

An Apology

Dear Marcus Rogers,   I owe you an apology.  I don't believe the spirit behind my critique of your new video is righteous, or comes from a godly place.  Your song is in fact beautiful, and a wonderful, moving piece of true worship that I find beautif...

Permanent Vocation

For a short time (less than a month), I was the caretaker on a farm near Cortez, Colorado.  I fed and counted hundreds of pigs, chickens, cows, and sheep, chased the neighbor's bulls off the property with a tractor, and repaired the barbed-wire fence...

Is Art Criticism Immoral?

17 Mar 2020 4 minute read 0 comments Nathan Payne

For too long, derivative, sub-par sonic garbage has been given a pass in the name of "praising God."  Because we live in a culture that is weak, insecure, and incapable of taking the criticism necessary for actual improvement in any given field, fake...

Galileo vs. Antifa

I have decided to celebrate Super-Hardcore History Month by commemorating Galileo, and his famous fight against Antifa during prehistoric times. In this famous 1857 painting by Cristiano Banti, Galileo is depicted facing the Roman Inquisition, who ar...
