Welcome to Lazerblade games.
I am LazerBlade, programmer, game developer, music composer and sequencer, writer, hacker, geek, Christian, and Descent player.

I'm only going to cover the most controversial aspects of myself. I.E, the "Hacker" and "Christian" part.

When I say "Hacker", I don't mean breaking into other peoples computers. I also don't mean defenseless dope who's afraid of pressing the any key without a license. Circumventing security is cracking, solving the puzzles necessary to do so often involves hacking. A good deal of hackers are crackers. Not all crackers are hackers. I don't break into other people's systems illegally, but I run wargames on a regular basis and would gladly do penetration testing given the opportunity. Hacking is not limited to computers. It is often related to computers or technology though. Roof and tunnel hacking IS hacking, and has very little to do with technology.

So If you spend 26 hours a day working hard to improve your skills in an area, and you don't care how long everybody else thinks a day is, there is a good probability you're a hacker.

When I say "Christian", I don't mean any denomination. Either you have eternal life or you don't. But people tend to err on either of two sides. The first is that once you recite some heartless prayer, you're saved and are may now waste the rest of your life in sin. I disagree. Reciting some words won't save you. You gotta actually be sincere and come right out and talk to God. Now assuming you were actually sincere, let's look at a Romans 6 verses 1-2:

1. What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2. God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

So if you are really saved, you have been freed from your sin and have the option of living an abundant, joyous, fruitful, Godly life.
On the other side, we have pedant's. They say you have to "commit" your life to the Lord, and "repent" from your sins  before you are saved. I again disagree.
Once they realize how easily detectable the heresy is, they often try to cover up by saying you have to have an "attitude" of repentance or commitment. Which is baloney, your attitude has very little to do with it.

24. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth
on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation;
but is passed from death unto life.

16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

9. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.

There are more, but I don't have space to list them all here.

Some would have you believe that you can't trust the KJV or X modern translation. They think all these verses of the bible have to be reinterpreted to say things which even the original Greek and Hebrew don't say. Tell me, does "and shalt commit in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead" make any sense to you? Doesn't make sense to me either. I don't believe that you need the Greek or Hebrew to learn how to be saved. Any of those three verses *In that translation* is enough. It's true, you should repent from your sin and commit your life to the Lord. Why get saved and then go on living a miserable life of sin?

So to summarize, you do have to be sincere, living a life of sin after you're saved is a foolish waste of potential, John 3:16 in the KJV and a number of other translations is a complete and accurate description of the how and what of being saved, and having to commit or anything close to it to be saved is a dangerous heresy.

Did I mention I believe rock music is a gift from the Lord? No? Well I do. :P
