A few weeks ago I stumbled onto one of those BookTube girls online and I started watching her videos as she went through her bookshelves, talking about the myriad of books she owned and which ones she liked and which ones she hated and why and why not. All the while she complained about dating and college and the rest of her seemingly perfect life.
Despite this, I did manage to take some of her book recommendations, titles that I simply would never have heard of before. One of those that rose to the top (not exactly sure why) was the book You’ve Reached Sam, which is about a high school girl who’s boyfriend suddenly dies and, in her grief, she calls his number to hear his voice on his voicemail, but instead of getting a recording her dead boyfriend actually picks up.
I immediately got the book (along with around 200+ other titles that formed my new reading list and loaded them up on my new ebook reader (a Likebook P6). I set out to finish this book as soon as I possibly could with the intension of forming a new profusive reading habit that would move reading to the top of my list of daily activities (other than watching Youtube videos or television shows since there doesn’t seem to be enough of those to fill the day with – but there are more than enough books to do so). Just as a note, there will be spoilers in this post so be forewarned.
So, now that I just finished this book, let’s jump in and see what I thought of it…
Not long ago a video popped up in the sidebar from youtube’s algorithm when I was looking up “god of war” (I was searching for the Exodus 15:3 reference). I clicked on the video out of curiosity because it was titled God is Actually a War God. I mean, why wouldn’t I click on that, right? Not to mention, the guy pictured in the thumbnail looked like a reject from the 1980’s movie, Lost Boys.
So, let’s dig into what “Morgue” had to say about the God of the Bible….
I’ve recently started creating small playlists on Youtube with a variety of music I happen to enjoy – especially when I’m writing. I’ve even started using them on my TV to free up resources on my computer – plus, the speakers are much louder.
I like to turn it up and rock out while the words hit the page. Check out the songs I LOVE to listen to while I’m writing.
This is part of my Music Review Series.
This was a question I had for a long time during my twenties, especially as I did more reading on the paranormal and tried to integrate the two often distinct and sometimes opposing views of ghosts and what maybe the bible says about them.
Despite the kickback that often comes from mainstream denominations, I think it’s an important question to ask, as, surprisingly, the answer can change how we see the world around us and can dramatically shape (or re-shape) our theology and world view.
So, let’s peel back the layers and discover what the bible really says about ghosts and the Paranormal.
