We live in a dangerous world.  We see stories of human violence on the news daily.  Many people groups around the world live in open hostility or in fear of their neighbors.  But, as Christians, how are we supposed to treat outsiders who want to join us but could be a potential threat?

Should we keep them out, or do we let them join us?

Do we only let in those who are like us, or do we risk becoming a more diverse culture?

This week’s The Gospel According to the Walking Dead is written by youth worker and huge The Walking Dead fan, Ryan Crittenden.

Redemption is awesome… when you’re the one being redeemed.

This episode reminded me why I like Rick Grimes. He is back to killing walkers like a pro, plus, it’s hard to not like

his classic one liner, “If I ever see your face again, stiches wont fix what I will do to you.”

Season 9 of The Walking Dead premiere felt more like The Walking Dead then we have seen for a while… and it gave us a true glimpse at the power of fear.

It has been a year and half in The Walking Dead world since the final battle with the Saviors, which is a great thing! Let’s be honest–Season 7 was boring and felt really forced. Season 8 was marginally better, but

Did you ever think that mercy would win at the end of season 8 of The Walking Dead? I know that I didn’t.

It is no secret that I have been very critical of this season. I have pointed out over and over how disjointed and counter-logical the show has been all season. And tonight’s episode wasn’t without its problems. Maggie’s anger makes sense to me, and her breakdown after Rick’s act of mercy was heart wrenching. But, I guess that we are now supposed to believe that Jesus, the same man who

Imagine you watched this show for the very first time tonight. Let’s say that you didn’t know anything that has happened up to this point and that you just tuned in and you had to try and figure out what was going on. Let’s also pretend that you never read the comics (which may be true) and that you have never heard a single conversation about the show.

Who on the show would you relate to the most?

Would you be able to figure out what was going on?

My guess is that you would be

Throughout this entire series one of the biggest themes on the show has been leadership, good and bad.

So far we have seen some great leaders. Rick has guided our group through thick and thin, and while there are some doubters, he has proven to be a powerful leader whenever they came across people or walkers trying to kill the group.

King Ezekiel, who may have had unconventional methods

After eight seasons of The Walking Dead, if there is one thing that has been worn down on all of our characters it is their trust.

I know that this is true because it has happened to the audience too. There probably isn’t a week that goes by where I don’t find myself saying, “Don’t trust that guy (or girl)”! And it makes sense on this show. People in this world are particularly untrustworthy no matter what they appear to be.

But this was the challenge laid out by
