I hope everyone is well after snowstorms and all. I've been busy of late working on my book. Just wanted to check in... hope your week finds you well.

Ministers were also known to ride on them occasionally to have an opportunity to witness to the lost. Much like certain churches' bar ministries. The Salvation Army (founded right within the commonly used Steampunk timeline) made that a regular part of their ministries.

Riverboats stereotypically brought gambling, demon rum, and lascivious shows to the river ways that we forget that they also brought mobile Churches to remote river towns (where a Church might be especially needed.)

Final cover in color for Flight From Egypt - third book in the Christian Adventures (Steampunk) series. 
God continues to be glorified by His power demonstrated in Egypt almost 3,000 years ago, "And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have gotten me honor upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen." Exodus14:18.

I just added a group that relates to my story: http://www.thesteampunkempire.com/group/sailors-of-the-aether-where...

It infuses elements of the Lightning Catcher universe with a little role-playing. Anyone can participate while developing their character as a participant in the story line becoming a living story, spinning yarns of adventure and fun for all ages.

Exactly so Rev Hunt 19 Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. 23 I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.

Now have read this blog and I think that there are indeed some points not really made. Granted, there are occasions where the full look of any given sub culture may be inappropriate, but to say that the Lord is hindered because of something that we like that isn't sinful is a bit of a stretch. I wouldn't do a wedding in full armor if it wasn't part of the theme (though I prefer vestments for period weddings), as it would be difficult for people to take me serious. However, when in a group of like-minded individuals, or reaching out to said groups, using the various fandoms helps to build a mutual ground from which to work. I have been able to witness more when dressing contrary to the norm (yet respectful of the situation), than I ever have in my blue collar work clothes. (Ministry won't make you rich, and I have another job.)

This article has been  brought to my attention.

I think  there some confusion.  I dabbed in Steampunk and I can tell there a big difference between aesthetics and anti-authority   punk culture. He also strikes me not well leaned in the scriptures . I notice tow verse out of context.  

I have serious problem with the article and miss-interpenetration of some key verses. Right now I dealing in a debate between Legalism and Liberty. The danger is the weak brother augment this it can quickly turn into tyranny of the weaker brother.


The right way to handle it a situation that is Adiaphora, that are indifferent and not specially mentions in scripture is not to look down at the weak bother with scruples but come aside him or her, but the weaker brother or sister cannot  make their scruples a law for the entire church. One is free to be a furry, steam punk , anime fan or other subcultures.
I do not have time to go in dealt but here are two references.

Greetings, I have found a diamond in the rough. It is refreshing to find a group not afraid to express themselves and still find deeply, their faith in Christ. I have just joined and I am willing to continue to help spread His word, in a most unconventional way... that is in a way I never thought possible, expressly in a sub-genre that I have inadvertently been fascinated with since I was a child. If it can be done, with the use of our gifts and personalities, even some goggles to place atop one's crown, then I'll do it... Sometimes Paul had to go great lengths to spread the Gospel. Blessings and Intercessory from the Aether.
