Taste and See: Discovering God amoung Butchers, Bakers, and Fresh Food Makers by Margaret Feinberg

This premise of this book had me intrigued from the beginning, the concept that God loves food, and is trying to tell us things through his creation? Well yes, sign me up.

Is Monster Energy “Evil?”

Back in 2014, a woman named Christine Weick was filmed attempting to convince people that Monster Energy Drinks had ties to the occult and particularly Satanism itself. She laid a variety of "proofs" in the video the caused some to question things. At the time of its release, I was in charge of running the coffee shop at my church where we had Monster energy drinks. In response, I did my due diligence to research into the claims. Below is a repost (edited slightly) of my findings that I posted on a personal website many years ago.

But is it worth watching? Does it live up to my expectations?
