BaMoTTuSto news

First of all, results have been randomly generated for today's challenge story. Writing will begin shortly. Congratulations to the lucky winners who conned me into writing a story about generic brand dog food, transcendence, and an instructor while the power suddenly goes out in the Bronx.

I randomly generated a second set from the responses, in case anyone wants to take the same challenge ...:
NOUN: License
VERB: explode
NAME: Jeremiah
PLOT TWIST: Suddenly, there was a strong smell of sandalwood ...

In other news, I'd like some feedback on the current story, especially from those of you who are Christians. Obviously, TTU magic is a subject about which there is plenty of theologicla room to disagree -- I don't want to start a debate about whether my arguments are "right" or not. What I would like to know is whether my Biblical arguments reasonably support the conclusion I reached, and whether there are any verses I could have more effectively cited in their place; or whether there are any verses that are just so clear on the subject that it's criminal for me not to have discussed them. ... And, more generally, whether the position outlined (God calls some people to do magic in His name) is broadly tenable, assuming a liberal view of the Bible and a world where magic suddenly became very in-your-face.

Mostly, just trying to put myself in a different set of shoes here -- I haven't been even nominally Christian since drifting away from the Unitarian church as a kid of about 10. Wondering how good of a job I did throwing myself out on that limb.
