• The Holy Communion

    The Holy Communion is an act of worship and thanksgiving that should be participated in and done by churches, gatherings and families in accordance to Christ's word (Luke 22:19) "To do this (the Holy Communion) in remembrance of Him" in order to thank God for sending His Son, thank Jesus for giving His life and to show our unity (oneness) with God... but why?

  • Is listening to secular music bad?

    - Is all secular music bad?
    - Am I saying that secular musicians are not talented?
    - What about secular musicians that are believers?
    - But secular music is better than Christian music
    - Why music... why not tv, games, etc?
    The Bible says to not be equally yoked with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14)... and listening to secular music makes you...

  • Why didn't you tell them about Jesus?

    Hell is real. It is your responsibility (as well as mine) to tell those who do not know about where people without Christ are headed. We will be held responsible for not sharing our faith... for being disobedient. Your salvation is not meant to be mysterious; Everyone should know. Not fulfilling the Great Commission is disobedience to...

    Worshiping God, being in the Spirit, feeling God's presence is much much more than lifting your hands up. Some do so because they think it is the right thing to do in God's Presence, others because they see people doing so, and others, for many more wrong reasons: Pride, hypocrisy, etc, or the right ones: adoration, joy, etc. When should you lift your hands up though?

  • Do not take God's glory

    Don't take God's glory. Never do. God gives you gifts, skills and talents, so the world can see, be amazed and through your giving Him glory, lead people back to Him. This is a reminder, one that I've needed to remind myself over and over again... Do not take God's glory or He will take it back...


A very simple and easy to use 3D effect in Photoshop with no additional plug-in needed.
Open Photoshop using the following dimensions

Type any text on top of the Background layer. I’m gonna use Arial Black at 200pts to illustrate this effect clearly. Right-click on the text layer and select “Rasterize type”. With the rasterized text layer selected, go to “Edit – Transform – Perspective”. Adjust you text to have a perspective similar to mine below.

Once you’ve applied the transformation, hold “Alt” and press the “Down arrow” 20 times. Your image should look like this.

Select the layer before the background layer and press “Ctrl – Shift – }” to send it to the top of all the layers. Double-click on this layer and apply the following blending options.

You should get this

See this tutorial on how to create a brush. Follow it and create a square brush, it will be useful for shading the 3D part of the text.

Once you’ve created the square brush, select a foreground color of #1f1830.

To shade the 3d part of the text, select every layer except the Background layer and the very 1st layer. Press “Ctrl – E” to merge these layers. Hold “Ctrl” and click on the merged layer to select it then you can use your brush to define the edges of the 3D parts. My final image below should give you a clue of what I mean.

I added a drop shadow on the merged layer with these settings.
