    Papa Spyk's Caught in A Naughty Thing Called Life

    in Writing

    Papa Spyk's new book, A Naughty Thing Called Life . . . The Complete Story allows you to slip on Spyk's skin and experience his amazing life being lived at a heart-pounding rate until it all comes to an abrupt halt as years of reckless living finally took its devastating and life-changing toll, and to experience the agonizing and painful journey that is still not without its tears as Papa Spyk attempts to slowly rebuild his life, and just when you think things could not possibly get worse, they do.


    But Papa Spyk has something in him that allowed him to live that life, crash, and crash again and again, and to somehow against all the odds get up and experience life again, and to help create new life, in the form of his angel, his daughter, Angelyna. Papa Spyk is no saint, and knows it, he had it all, and blew it all many times over, until near-death experience changed all that. 

    Papa Spyk's a professional rugby player, top international model, actor, and stuntman and A Naughty Thing called Life is an honest story of his experience.


    Accorging to Papa Spyk, My ultimate dream in life is to have my book made into a Hollywood film, and if anyone has any contacts in the film industry please let me know, I so want to see my story on the big screen so I can make a difference to millions of people's lives.

    Walking In Obediance

    in Spirituality

    Obedience is not a popular word today. Many people live their lives according to how they feel and have a blatant disregard for God Word however, the Word of God is very clear that obedience is a necessary and crucially important part of our life as Christians.


    Definition of Obedience According to Webster Dictionary


    compliance with an order, request, or law or submission to another's authority:


    "children were taught to show their parents obedience"


     


    Many people often confuse obedience for submission listed below is a biblical difference between the two. 


    Obey – The Biblical word for “obey” comes from the Greek “hupakou” which means to listen attentively; by implication to heed or conform to a command or authority. This word conveys the idea of actively following a command. There is no choice in the matter, it is to be done whether one agrees with it or not. Obedience is involuntary.


    Submit – The Biblical word “submit” comes from the Greek “hupeiko” which means to yield; to passively surrender to an authority. Submission is similar to obedience but in this case one might question what is being commanded. Submission is voluntary. [1]



    Reward of Obedience


    Proverbs 13:13 whoever despises the word brings destruction on himself, but he who reveres the commandment will be rewarded.


    The Cost of Disobedience
    Romans 2:6-8 He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.

    Dynamic Dojo Talkradio: Open forum-"When does martial discipline become 'abuse'?

    in Sports

     Join us sunday May 17th at 6 pm pacific time as we discuss a touchy subject..."when does discipline in the martial arts turn into abuse'?


    Its a difficult subject to pin down,because context changes the meaning between 'discipline' and 'abuse'. As martial artists we know of the 'pushup consequence'....act innapropriately or disregard a rule, and a teacher would sometimes drop a student for 10 or 20 pushups as a 'wakeup call'....but if the teacher singles out a student for pushups, publicly berates them for the tiniest of infractions, or even withholds rank promotion for unspecified reasons or reasons that have no merit, that is considered abuse. 


    Many people call it "old school", but where is the line drawn between 'old school' and emotional/mental/physical abuse? Let's hear your thoughts, give us a call at (347) 677-0699
