Great write up thanks. Great quote from Zack Hunt. It is true that Superman epitomises humanity's greatest ideals. And unfortunately, it is the best that mankind can "dream up". It is for this very reason that idolatry is so un-God-like, because any form of human god is, well, the best that mankind can dream up.
I had similar thoughts a while back after watching Superman Returns. Check it out here (http://bit.ly/19Lhkwy).
More than the Apostle Paul, I can say that I am the chief of sinners (really really really). But I love God and I love the Bible. So I try to live my life with the constant realisation that God is PERMANENTLY with me (yes even when I sin). Thus I seek His presence in everything that I do (except when I sin) and in everything that happens. I simply hope to share this with others so that they too can believe it and then seek to live it.
Spiritually, I was raised Methodist, became a Pentacostal, then matured into a Baptist. I believe in the continuance of the gifts of the Spirit, only that it be exercised Biblically.
Professionally, I am currently a house husband (or male home executive). I use the morning part of the day to study part time (correspondence) for my degree in theology with BTC Randburg (Baptist Theological Callege), and then in the afternoons I look after the house and kids (yes, I cook and clean and wash the dishes and washing – I just don’t iron). I have been a few other things over the years, but that’s not important now.
Personally, I am and have been the husband of but one wife for the past 15 years to Anna-Marie, and the father to a wonderful 5 year old boy, Timothy. Dang, it is a busy job, but I am loving being able to serve them both now in being a stay at home dad.
Geographically, I live in Durban, South Africa and am a member of Glenwood Community Church (previously Bulwer Road Baptist Church).
As a family, we have chosen to live our lives in accordance with Joshua 24:15 (NIV) “… as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
