Introducing SinWin behavior tracker

LAS VEGAS - CES - February 11th, 2016 - LifeHacker Church, a leader in the spiritual fitness market, today unveiled SinWin, a behavior tracking app, which together with the wearable technology in the SinWinSkin bracelet, make up a comprehensive sin management solution.

Never before has behavior tracking been easier or more accurate. Instead of journals, logs, accountability partners, and the "leading" of the Holy Spirit, SinWin wearable technology allows you to monitor works of the flesh in real-time. When you fail to take a thought captive, SinWin will know and so will everyone else. SinWin technology incorporates sensors monitoring heart rate, speech, core temperature, perspiration level, ergonomic state, and electromagnetic radiation to derive your SinScale - a rating for your depravity.

The technology is complex but the result is simple.

And effective.

Here's how it works:

Each day your SinScale starts with a score of 10,000 points. Every sin detected reduces your score. Lustful thought? Minus fifty points. White lie to a co-worker? Take away twenty-five points. One cupcake too many? That will cost you fifteen points. Micro-transgressions such as pangs of jealousy and Facebook envy subtract anywhere from three to eleven points.

"Before SinWin, you would need to come to church to get your weekly dose of guilt, shame, and condemnation but now you can have  all those functions on your wrist," said Walter BeeBee, lead pastor and CEO of LifeHacker Church. "Before SinWin, pastors would have no idea how well you behaved in the past week but with our social media integration, your followers will know exactly how many times you viewed porn in the past hour because it will show up in their news feed."

In response to concerns that SinWin will make pastors obsolete, Bebe said this: "The beauty of this app is we pastors have always suspected you're sinning more than you think and now we can know for sure. Now we can focus on what we really should be doing - keeping you from tipping the SinScale. We all know the goal of the Christian life is sin management and now we can monitor your sanctification progress better than ever before."

In-app purchases include customized notifications such as "You have exceeded your husband nagging quota for the day" and even preemptive alerts such as "When you go into Starbucks, don't stare at anything in yoga pants".

Customer testimonials include:

"Before SinWin, I only heard 'recalculating' when I was in the car but now I get to hear that British-accented woman every time I do something wrong"

"Unbelievable. I was 200 points down before I even got out of bed this morning because I had a strange dream with leprechauns"

"I got a 1475 last week and earned the 1K crumpled angel wing badge. I'm hoping to get the Donald Trump hair badge for seven consecutive days of avoiding Muslims."

And the benefits of SinWin don't end with you. 

Steve Yang, LifeHacker Chief Technologist and father of twin toddlers, explained: "This app will also revolutionize parenting. We had helicopter parenting before but this will usher in the age of drone parenting. Parents can monitor their child's SinScale using their smartphone and have more time to do more spiritual things than waste time parenting their kids".

Asked how Jesus would have rated on SinWin: "Pretty close to 10K" Bebe replied. "We're still working on how our algorithm rates his death and resurrection on the SinScale but we're confident our programming team will have it down in the next release."

The SinWin app is available free in iTunes and Google Play.

A Dad's Review of Passport 2 Purity

[3,100 words, 11 minute read]

The sex talk is one of the most dreaded conversations parents anticipate having with their children. To make things easier, an entire industry exists to help parents with sex education. Dozens of books have been written to help parents navigate this treacherous topic with their progeny. One of the best known among evangelicals is called the Passport 2 Purity Getaway package. It is produced by FamilyLife, a division of Cru (former Campus Crusade for Christ) and consists of a five lecture CD package including a journal and exercises designed as a weekend retreat for a pre-pubescent child and his/her parent(s).

Passport 2 Purity was not my initiative. Our trip came about because Judy had heard from several home-schooling mom friends how they had taken their daughters on a road trip to go through the CDs. She even heard how a mom took a trip with husband and two sons to through the curriculum. So a couple months ago, Judy suggested we take our two older boys o…

Planting a Church. Finally.

James Taylor, the great grandson of Hudson Taylor, the famed missionary to China who founded the China Inland Mission (now OMF) once said: “It is a tragedy so many foreign Chinese have left the evangelization of China up to the non-Chinese.”

James spoke those words over twenty-five years ago during a Chinese church retreat when I was a senior in high school. His calling out of the Chinese diaspora vis-a-vis white missionaries challenged and haunted me. This challenge was the impetus behind my plans to join Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) staff to do a one-year mission trip to China. But I didn’t go. Rather, I accepted an invitation from my hometown pastor, Tom Chow, to return to San Jose and reach my American-born Chinese peers.

After nine years of working as a project manager and volunteering with the youth group and young adult ministry, I joined the staff of my home church, Chinese Church in Christ - South Valley (South Valley) in 2006. In the summer of 2007, South Valley l…

Why Asians Run Slower

My brother got me David Epstein's book The Sports Gene. It is a fascinating quick read. If you're interested in sports and science, it will enthrall you. I finished it in three days.

Epstein's point is that far more of an athlete's performance is due to genetics than due to the so-called "10,000 hour" rule promulgated by books such as Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell and Talent is Overrated by Geoff Colvin (both which are very good). The 10,000 hour rule states that any person can reach expert level of performance in a sport if they devote 10,000 hours of deliberate and intentional practice. 
That's a lot of hours. Most people aren't capable of anywhere close. And that's precisely Epstein's point.
Someone who devotes 10,000 hours of sport-specific practice is likely genetically gifted for the sport in extraordinary ways AND genetically gifted in their ability to persevere and benefit from practice. Therefore, a person who can practice that much is…
