1000 Ways to Die

Love it, hate it, never seen it. Truth is, I stumbled across 1000 Ways to Die a couple of years ago, and I was fascinated by what I saw on the television screen. Spike TV presents a pretty compelling show here. Granted, it is sometimes littered with the usual sex, drugs, and rock and roll of television as a soft porn turn on, but when it stays "on task" - a relative term- the show can be hard to turn off. There's the assorted beheadings, bloodlettings, and unexpected animal encounters of both the human and nonhuman kind. Throw in stupid tricks by even stupider people, and the possibilities are endless.

There's clearly a thousand and more ways to die, but only one way to live, "Just as you used to offer the parts of your body in slavery to impurity and to ever increasing wickedness, so now offer them in slavery to righteousness leading to holiness...for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
 (Romans 6:19, 23)
