I’m not quite sure how I feel about this…

Okay, so I knew that when I opened up my blog for syndication anyone could link to it, but I guess I didn’t really expect anyone to actually do it! Now, I’ve got a site called Christian Geeks using me as thier main “news” feed on their homepage. Technically, I am, in fact, a Christian and I’ve almost always said that I was a geek, so, I guess it fits. But, well, I never really thought of my geekness and my Christianity as being related. And, I’m not sure how comfortable I am being held up as somekind of example of Christian geekdom. I mean, I’m not exactlly the “ideal” example of a Christian!
For one thing, I curse. I say “damn” and “crap” all the time. Just ask my poor step-daughter! (No, I don’t yell at her with curse words, but everytime I screw something up on my PC, or with the plumbing, “damn” and “crap” are every other word!) For another thing, I don’t even really go to church any more. I sort of got fed up with the whole organized religion “scene”. It seemed like it was more about making money than anything else.
On the other hand, I do generally believe in the basic tenants of Christianity. Of course, I try to be as open and accepting in that belief as possible. For instance, I don’t think that the Dalai Lama is going to Hell because he hasn’t accepted Christ as his personal savior. I just can’t believe in a God that would do something like that. And, I do try to pray on a regular basis. And improve my contact and awareness of God in my life.

Oh, I don’t know. I guess what I’m saying is, remember, if you read it on the Internet, take it with a grain of salt. And, consider the source.
