The Spiritual Olympiads

LONGWOOD, FL (PRWEB) February 4, 2006 -?

As the world gears up for the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, a new book in the religion/spirituality market informs readers about the most enormous and longest competition the world has ever seen, the Christian Olympics, otherwise known as the ?Christian race? that the apostle Paul wrote about nearly 2,000 years ago.

In The Christian Olympics: Going for the Gold Crowns ($ 12.99, 1-5978-1530-6, $ 20.99, 1-5978-1531-4)) author S.E. Gregg unveils the Bible?s comparison of the Christian race to the Olympic Games. Paul wrote to a Hellenistic culture?one steeped in Greek philosophy, culture, and athletics?and so for the Christians of his day, marathon foot races run by Greek Olympians provided the perfect metaphor for the endurance, longevity, and persistence needed to successfully finish the race of faith. Those who do, Gregg reminds us, will receive crowns of gold from the Lord Himself. A new understanding and exhilaration for the Christian life, pursued with the vigor of a spiritual athlete, will help readers to endure their problems and suffering. As a result, Gregg hopes to stoke the fires of passionate living for God and encourage readers to look forward to what is ahead.

Weaving in applications for both individuals and families, Gregg developed Biblical strategies to help us run our races well, just as athletes develop a game plan to help them win their competitions. Gregg examines the rich comparative examples Paul gave us in the Epistles:

1. The lighting of the flame at the Olympics is reminiscent of the fire of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost which was the ‘divine’ Opening Ceremony.

2. When Paul said to ?run the race with patience,? he was referring to actual marathon foot races popular in the Greco-Roman culture.

3. Just as successful ancient Olympiads received crowns made of laurel leaves, believers who run the race of faith to the finish line will receive crowns of gold at the Closing and Rewards Ceremonies in the sky!

Just as a marathon is a long, one-person endurance test, so too is our walk of faith. And like athletes in training endure suffering and setbacks from exercise?strained muscles, sore bodies?the Christian also suffers when living for God in the midst of a perverse world; but it is beneficial to their spiritual growth as a workout is to the athlete. The author has a unique way to help Christians see themselves as true players in an Olympic game, by helping them to visualize themselves in a spiritual athletic competition which has never been done before.

A Bible school graduate, gifted Bible teacher and Bible curriculum writer, S.E. Gregg is the author of the best selling book Evangelism Counseling and the salvation tract ?God Became a Man.? The Christian Olympics sprang from a newspaper article which Gregg wrote titled ?The Christian Olympics are still going on!? Gregg lives in Philadelphia.

Xulon Press is the world?s largest Christian publisher, with more than 2,500 titles published to date. Retailers may order The Christian Olympics through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.

### Launches to Provide Married Couples with Safe Christian Sex Toy Shopping

Riverside, CA. (PRWEB) August 12, 2009

Christian sex toys and adult novelties!? With the acclaim and support of many ministers and initial customers, Christian Love Toys recently launched with the mission of providing “A Safe & Sexy Place for Christian Married Couples to Shop for Sex Toys and Adult Novelties”. The site establishes that Christian sex should be spicy and exhilarating for married man and woman as God intended according to His design. Many sex toy and intimacy products can be safely enjoyed within the context of the Christian marriage bedroom (living room, car back seat, kitchen, etc).

Traditionally, the shopping experience for sex toy products can be overwhelming, awkward, embarrassing, and is plagued with a plethora of pornographic imagery. Christian Love Toys solves this by not selling any pornography or products with pornographic packaging. Also, all orders are quickly and conveniently shipped directly to customers’ homes in discreet, non-descript, plain brown packaging.

Christian Love Toys carefully selects a wide and rapidly growing inventory of fun and sexy toy products for married couples to enjoy together. The product selection includes silicone and water based lubes, textured and flavored condoms, feather ticklers, board & card sex games, erotic dice, blindfolds, massage oils & lotions, and more. The store also maintains an extensive inventory of massage vibrators, which includes bullet vibrators, egg vibrators, mini vibrators, G spot vibrators, waterproof vibrators, and others in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.

A recent passionate customer testimonial says it all “I can’t believe I finally found a site like yours with sex toys for Christians! If I could hug you, I would! You delivered exactly what you promised! I really appreciate what your company does; you really do provide a safe place for my husband and I to shop for fun sex toys and vibrators without all those filthy ads and gross products. Our newly purchased Hitachi Magic Wand massage vibrator was shipped quickly, and we love it! It’s time Christians take a stand against porn and other degrading materials while letting the world know Christian married sex can and should be hot ~n~ spicy.”

Through the end of August 2009, Christian Love Toys is running a few specials, free shipping on orders of more than $ 50 or $ 4.95 flat rate shipping AND a FREE mystery gift ($ 6.95+ value) with purchases of $ 30 or more.

Christian Love Toys encourages all married couples to review Site Guidelines before and during their online shopping experience. The Site Guidelines provide information on how to browse the selection of love toys and marital aids, while still appropriately serving and submitting to God and spouse. For example, the Guidelines instruct married couples to pray and shop together, while always respecting each others’ comfort levels.

To avoid any potential misunderstanding by the general public or Christian peers, the store has prominently posted a notice on the home page “You cannot solve a boring, unfulfilling, irrelevant, or failing marriage with sex toys, fantasy, and novelty! True marital intimacy is the result of seeking a deeply personal relationship with Jesus Christ and actively living out His teachings from the Bible. Focus on intentionally serving and appropriately submitting to your spouse… pray together, read the Bible together, attend & serve at church together, join a small group / Bible study together, seek accountability, plan date nights, and grow through intentional relationship. The products and resources at Christian Love Toys should be used to complement, not replace a Christ-centered marriage.” The store also maintains a page dedicated to directly addressing Common Criticisms.

Married couples may view the store and selection of sex toys, adult novelties, and massage vibrators at Christian Love Toys. Special packages are available to churches for marriage conferences, marriage retreats, and marriage getaways

Christian Based Values Video Game Tribulation Knights Starting Development

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) May 12, 2006

Tribulation Knights? is a brand new video game in what is hopefully a series of video games. The first of the series is a stealth based third-person adventure for the PC, developed and published by Atomic Design Laboratory.


The main character, whose name has not been released, yet, is a recently trained agent of the life saving organization known only as the “Tribulation Knights”. A “Tribulation Knight” is an agent of a secret organization created by a now destroyed association of worldwide Christian churches. Their mission is to insure the freedom and safety of the last Christians left on the planet during the Tribulation. This period after the rapture known as the Tribulation will be a time where Christians worldwide will experience persecution for their faith.????

The storyline is an interpretation of the Bible concerning the end days. A worldwide cult has gained control of the planet and is planning to incarcerate Christians who do not join them. The Tribulation Knights aim is to prevent that. The missions range from gathering intelligence to releasing fellow operatives from interrogation cells, to saving groups of incarcerated citizens from the clutches of the powerful Enforcers.


Tribulation Knights features stealth as one of the most important and critical aspects of gameplay. What truly sets Tribulation Knights apart from other games on the market are its game rules. Shooting and killing of game characters is absent from this game. A high tech slingshot is one of the primary tools available to a Knight and it is used to take out surveillance and alarm systems.

If the player is detected by any of the various types of surveillance, cult Enforcers, or by citizens loyal to the cult, an alarm will sound attracting unwanted attention. If an alarm has been triggered then the mission might end prematurely, or the NPC enemies can become more aware when triggered. The enemy can capture the knight, which forces the player to replay the level or start again from a remote prison cell. The missions require the player to remain almost invisible to the enemy for most of the game. This requires taking less traveled routes like the ledges of tall buildings, crawling through air ducts, and navigating miles of sewer tunnels on an ATV.

Release Date:

A release date has not been announced.

Would the new Dante’s Inferno video game go against any of christianity beliefs? Would just watching demos out of curiosity and not playing the game be considered still wrong in any way?

Best answer:

Answer by stephen
Well, it would be okay to play it, but if you adore it more than God and play it other than reading ur Bible and going to church then it would be a big problem.
