    Grammys Recap & The Death of Vanity At 57

    in News

    RadioOnFire.com - Vanity, lead singer of the '80s girl group Vanity 6, has died after years of battling kidney failure and, more recently, an abdominal illness. Vanity, whose real name was Denise Katrina Matthews, passed away in a Fremont, CA hospital on Monday ... according to sources close to her family. A few months ago she set up a GoFundMe page, and said she'd been diagnosed with sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis -- an inflammation of the small intestines. She also battled crack addiction in the '90s, and after a 1994 OD her kidneys were shot. She had to undergo nearly daily dialysis treatments

    Jeff Mach: Creator of The Steampunk World’s Fair

    in Radio

    There’s nothing ordinary about Steampunk. It’s a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. It may also incorporate additional elements from the genres of fantasy, horror, historical fiction, alternate history, or other branches of speculative fiction, making it often a hybrid genre. And Jeff Mach, the creator of the world’s largest Steampunk World’s Fair, has put all of this together into one huge event that attracts people of all ages on May 13-15. Like all events, there is food, vendors, and entertainment, but definitely not your typical offerings. For example, the Absinthe Party has me curious. According to Jeff, Steampunk is “a bunch of stuff people do that’s vaguely inspired by mad science in a world that bears some sort of resemblance to the Victorian era.” I anticipate seeing costumes with mechanical workings, ornate engraving, and lots of goggles. And as far as the dress code goes, at The Steampunk World’s Fair, you are welcome to wear whatever you want (as long as it won’t get you arrested for indecent exposure). What we now call Steampunk has existed in some manner for quite a long time; but it’s only recently that Steampunk’s started coming together as some kind of coherent social phenomenon. Jeff’s heart was captured at thirteen by The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He was fascinated by how you could change the ordinary world of a movie theatre and create a strange, wonderful new home for people whose interests were outside the norm. He’s dedicated his life to creating those places. After the interview, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

    Walking Through Vanity Fair: the Christian and the World, Part 1

    in Christianity

    Pilgrim's Progress According to the Bible #32


    TEXT: John 17:14-18


    "In the world, but not of the world," is a common phrase among Christians, but what does it really mean? The answer to this question has important implications for how we live our lives every day. A famous depiction of Christians being in the world but not of it is found in the description of Vanity Fair in Pilgrim's Progress. 


    The happenings in Vanity Fair are a symbol of the nature of the world. The devil puts a great deal into making the world appear attractive, colorful, and dazzling. He keeps millions of poor souls enslaved in the pursuits of this life. And, as the wisest man who ever lived said, it turns out to be nothing but vanity, vexation of spirit, and a chasing after the wind. 
     
    Yet, as Christians, we are to live in this world of vanity. In our passage for today, Jesus Christ is praying for His disciples -- and, by extension, all believers -- as He is on His way to be crucified in Jerusalem. I will be dealing with Jesus' entire prayer in a future message in our Praying Through the Bible Series, but today, I want us to look at Jesus' words which shed light on how we should live as Christians in a world of vanity.
     
    The first thing we see in Jesus' prayer is that we are to abstain from evil. He says, "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil." Many Christians have the idea that the only way they can be free from the evil in the world is to be separated from the world. To that end, we build walls around our Christian communities, we cloister ourselves in Christian ghettoes, and we never interact with those who do not yet know Christ. In other words, we confuse sanctification with separation.
