Making Up for Misplaced Passion

I love JavaScript. I love programming in general, but despite its numerous downsides, I have enjoyed JavaScript more than any other language, especially with the recent developments coming in ES2015. There is just one problem: God is supposed to be my primary love and JavaScript shouldn’t even be in the top 3, and I have shown very little love for God in a way that the masses could distinguish.

Why Should I Love God

First off, I know for a fact that God is real and that He also loves me. Don’t bother debating me on that because you’ll either lose (and therefore potentially win in the best way), or we’ll have a stalemate due to stubbornness. Anyway, He has done so much for me.


  • He created me.
  • He humbled himself from the ultimate being of the universe down to being a poor human for our sake.
  • He was sinless so that I didn’t have to be.
  • He gave up his life in the most excruciating way physically and spiritually so that I would be able to draw near to him, blameless, and spend eternity with my creator instead of spending eternity in a place of torment.

Why wouldn’t I want to love such a wonderful God?

Passion Redirection

I’m glad that I have been unable to build this blog up as much as I had hoped/planned, because it is now still a personal blog and I cannot have anyone telling me what I may or may not post on here. This is good, because I hope to now write about what God is doing and has done in my life and in the world more often here.

Don’t worry too much if you’re just here for the JavaScript stuff and could care less about a Christian talking about God; I will still be writing about JavaScript, as this _is_ a JavaScript blog. I’ll be trying to keep the “awesome”s and such to a minimum, though, since nothing is more awesome than God.


Now that I’ve gotten that out there, I’ll be signing off for now. In the meantime, you can read my explanation of the Gospel for geeks. God bless and happy coding.
