Geekdom of God Ep. 5 - What Is Heresy?

Image
In this episode, I talk about the concept of heresy and give some historical examples of it. I think heresy is important to talk about, but I also recognize it has a lot of historical baggage.

Note: Previous episodes have had a link to download the audio. I've removed that because I believe the videos to be far superior. However, if people want the audio download link back, let me know and I can add it in again.

VOD of Consciousness Round-Up (2018 Season, Episodes 100-106)

Image
This week I released episode 100 of VOD of Consciousness, which is super exciting! I decided to celebrate by re-creating Valerie Peace and journeying back into Pre-Searing Ascalon, which I enjoyed tremendously. Thus, this entire week took place in Pre-Searing Ascalon, with a brief interlude to visually discuss some map differences between Pre-Searing and Post-Searing Ascalon.

Geekdom of God Ep. 4 - Three Strange Metaphor Ministries

Image
In this episode of Geekdom of God I talk about three strange metaphor ministries that God gave to the Old Testament prophets Isaiah, Hosea, and Ezekiel.

I do a number of different things with the non-Bible text in this video. I have some that summarize what I'm saying, some that follow along, and others that follow along in a more immediate fashion. Please let me know what you think of these, and which you liked best!

As always, thanks for watching and listening!

VOD of Consciousness Weekly Round-Up!

Image
This week was interesting. I started it by continuing on in the Shiverpeak Mountains for the Young Heroes of Tyria book, but after The Frost Gate decided to turn my attentions elsewhere. Eventually, I decided I wanted to acquire more of the PvE only skills available in the Eye of the North expansion, so I headed up that way to do just that.

Geekdom of God Ep. 3 - The Stumbling Block of Legalism

Image
In this episode, I talk extensively about the concept of Legalism.

A few notes:

1. This episode is much longer than I want episodes to generally be. My target is 10-12 minutes or less, with an allowance for the rare 15 minute episode of a topic can't be split up very well. On the bright side, this episode and its length has given me a lot of good data to draw from that'll help me be within my desired time limit on future episodes!

2. I'm trying out a "cold open" in this one, where rather than starting right away with the greeting, I instead open with a relevant Bible quotation. Let me know what you think!

3. Speaking of requests for feedback, one of the side effects of the length of this episode is that I went for a much simpler video style than I did with the previous episode. Let me know what you think! Do you prefer this simpler style? Did you like all of the text in the previous episode? Would you prefer something in between?

As always, thanks for watching and lis…

VOD of Consciousness Weekly Round-Up

This week, I spent my time in Ascalon, playing through the missions there. It was riddled with ups and downs and full of nostalgia. Good times! I do quite enjoy the barren, ruined wasteland aesthetic of post-Searing Ascalon, and I think this week's videos do a reasonably good job of showing that off. It's definitely an aesthetic I'd like to be able to try in a game someday!

Welcome to my new podcast, Geekdom of God. As I spend this episode going over who I am and why I'm making this podcast, I'll not repeat myself here. Suffice it to say that I'm quite pleased to introduce this new podcast today, and I hope you enjoy some actual visuals to go along with it!
