  • Cyberpunk 2077’s crucifixion scene

    Amongst Cyberpunk’s world of robotic implants, futuristic gangs, and terrorist rockstars, there are a multitude of side-quests that tell their own stories in Night City. One of them in particular really stands out.

  • Is Christian heavy metal ok?

    The existence of Christian heavy metal has caused debate and speculation amongst Christian circles since its inception. Big names among Christian metal bands include the likes of Demon Hunter and P.O.D (short for Payable On Death), which have both been around for almost 20 years.

  • Devil May Cry’s Christian symbolism

    Devil May Cry is a series of hack-and-slash video games featuring a slew of characters with half and quarter demon heritage who use their demonic powers and human determination to fight against forces of hell.

Created by American comedian Duncan Trussell, and Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward, the show combines select interviews from Trussell’s podcast with a cartoon story about a man who interviews beings from dying universes through a simulation machine.

  • Understanding secular Aus-rock

    Christians are hated and ridiculed because of our beliefs. The Bible tells us this will happen, 2 Timothy 3:12, Romans 5:3 and 8:18, 1 Peter 5:10, there’s many more references to this—it’s part of being Christian. However, I believe that sometimes Christians are hated because of their poor behaviour.
