Video Games Are Just Stupid… apparently

Are lego video games as stupid as Mark Driscoll reckons?So. Last night, myself and Mrs Mac go out, have a nice meal, come back and spend a fairly amazing couple of hours playing Lego Harry Potter. Mrs Mac loved it. It’s a fun, cheerful, playable, and a really quite funny video game. And a fun way to spend her 30th birthday.

According to this well known Bible teacher… that was stupid:

 

There are comments on youtube that suggest he meant people that spend hours / days on games like WoW, not video games in general. Do you think thats what he meant?

Are sweeping statements like this helpful from the pulpit?

Hello. Our Church Is A PC

With thanks to @PaulMTilley @gerrarrdus, here are ten signs of a church being a PC:

  1. My Word! You’re a practical bunch aren’t you!
  2. Nicely accepting as well anyone can join in.
  3. Shame you lot accept any passing colds and other viruses as well…
  4. You’re honest. You accept your failings.
  5. If someone wants to bring their friend along… the chances are their friend is going to fit in easier with you than the Mac down the road…
  6. Teaching over style?
  7. You try and start on time, but it takes a while to get started.
  8. Remember that time everything was going really well, smoothly, in the flow, then it… all goes blue!
  9. Simple questions all the time. For Example “Are you sure you want to pray? Yes or No”
  10. When a service goes wrong, you need to stop, close all the church windows, then start the service again.

Is there anything we should have included?

Part 2 is due later this week…

Why Macs are better than PC’s

I’d like to say that quite clearly the two of us sat on the church sofa are not biased in anyway. At a lot times we’re complete opposites in opinion for example I clearly love chairs in church whilst the other Andy clearly loves pews* and this time is no different. You see I’m a Mac and the other misguided member of the church sofa team is a PC. So here’s a number reasons why Macs are better than PC’s.

1. My Mac still works
2. Macs do what you want them to with out much effort (i.e. connect to a wifi internet connection and you can use the internet, no fiddling round with IP addresses)
3. Macs are sexy
4. Macs are ready to go out the box – everything is already there install a few extra applications you want and you’re set
5. My Mac still works
6. You only need anti virus so that you don’t pass on PC viruses to PC users, the just don’t do anything to Mac at the moment
7. Loads up quickly – turn a mac on and it asks for your password, turn a PC on you go and make a cup of tea and then wait for it finish

And did I mention my Mac still works?

I’m sure there will be an appropriate Why PCs are better post soon, well as soon as the other Andy fixes his PC/buys a Mac.

If you can think of any other reasons please post them below.

*to be honest I can’t really remember which way round the chair and pew thing was anymore.

**Please note this post is made in jest and is not a definitive guide on why Macs are better than PC’s and The Church Sofa still remain entirely unbiased on this issue.
