If cool is your only rule, you are a fool

If I could go back in time and tell myself a few instructive things, one of them would be to stop worrying about looking like an idiot. As John Piper puts it, "risk is right." I wasn't the most daring sort, and by playing it safe I pretty much escaped looking like an idiot. But it also meant that I took way too long to track down my wife and ask her out. So what was I so worried about? Looking silly? The problem is, no risk, no reward - safe is also quite joyless, boring and ungodly.

Ungodly? Really?

Yes, the young man who risks nothing bears a striking resemblance to the fellow who wanted to play it safe by burying his talent. That way he was sure not to lose it. And also sure not to make anything of it. God expects men to be manly. Again, as Piper puts it, "better to lose your life than waste it."

Pro-abortion argument countered

Another one I did for my magazine.

Pro-abortion advocates argue abortion must be legal because it is unacceptable for women to lose control of their bodies, which they would if they were, after becoming pregnant, forced to carry the baby to term. What is forgotten here is that men have in the past, when it was a matter of life and death, also lost control of their bodies, being drafted into the military, and sent to defend their country. What would be unacceptable normally, in life and death situations may become necessary.

So the real question, then, is whether abortion is a life and death situation. Or, to put it another way, it comes down to "What are the unborn?" If they are human like you and me, then this is a life and death situation.

Dental orientation

If all minorities need to be inserted into our Charter of Rights, what about this one?

Politicians don't lie...

The impression is that politicians lie a lot. But is that true?

No. Politicians lie only rarely, but they avoid the truth much more often. Instead of giving us clear choices, and present us their positions in an upfront manner, we instead hear vague generalities, meaningless postures, or positions that no one could possibly disagree with (who exactly is against motherhood and apple pie?). They don't lie to us, but they don't tell us truth either, because they most often don't tell us anything at all.

If there is doubt...

If there is doubt, you can't kill. That's a fact we only understand - there is no question, but that it would be immoral for this demolition expert to push the plunger before he is certain that there is no human life within. And yet sometimes abortion is defended on the basis of the claim "No one knows when human life begins." But if we don't know, then we can't be certain that the unborn aren't indeed precious human beings. And as long as we have doubts - if we aren't sure then, whether human life lies within - we can't kill!

Modesty 2

How do you illustrate modesty and immodesty in a Christian publication? You go with stick figures of course! This was a picture I created to accompany an article about modesty in dress.

Modesty 1

This is an illustration I did for the cover of Reformed Perspective, for an article on modesty. It is hard to illustrate modesty without showing immodesty, so this was a bit of a fun challenge.

Pro-life brochure - front cover

These aren't comics, but this is the only personal blog I have, so up they go, for the time being. These are a mock-up of a brochure that Mike Schouten and crew aim to deliver to 67,000 houses on April 16 in the White Rock/Cloverdale area.

So, needless to say, we will need some help. Here's your chance to speak up for the unborn - give me a shout (penguineditor@gmail.com) to sign up to help and for more info about the April 16 event.

(See the rest of the brochure in the posts below this one)
