The Bible says some people will twist grace into a license to sin. As a consequence, when this happens some tend to react by drawing away from grace and fearing it so that we won’t become one of those living ugly while excusing it with grace. Continue reading “Original Grace”
I have been trying to delete this blog. It is not possible! The confirmation e-mail just doesn’t show up. I guess the same is true for life. What’s done is done. It can be forgiven, but never undone. What’s said is said, you can never swallow back the words you spewed out. Continue reading “Tried to Delete It”
When people in a former Christian culture like ours think about Christianity, we might—and often do—think about the Ten Commandments; the Bible and the Christian cultural inheritance is all about trying to be a little better; if you’re in Church you should stop cussing and try to smile at thy neighbour.

You can climb the best mountains, open the nicest presents, have the nicest house ever, make the finest piece of art, and still you feel empty. I was thinking about it today. Sometimes I get too much into my job as a webdesigner, and I obsess over making that perfect piece of web or graphic design. I never feel like I get there. I loose sleep.

What would happen if we just left work whenever we felt like it? No, we keep on riding, not according to our feelings, but because we know there will be a big fat amount (or just big enough to barely survive) on our account in the end of the month.

Whitespace is a part of design.
The areas containing nothing at all is what might separate a good design from a cluttered one. If you only have whitespace, you have nothing, but if you have too little, what you have is a mess. Continue reading “More Whitespace”
I love the mountains. Sometimes I hate them. When I am away from them, sometimes I miss them. When I am on them I sometimes long for bigger mountains to climb. I love seeing mountains in the distance. I love being on top of them seeing the plains from up top. They fill me with awe, if you allow me to use that strong of a word. Mighty rocks tearing out of the plains, going straight up for several hundreds, or even thousand meters. It makes me feel small, and it displays creator God as big.
