“The BBC teased religious…… leaders by asking them if they believed in the literal truth of the great Bible stories. I would like to ask BBC chiefs and the rest of our secular establishment if they believe in the literal truth of evolution. Evolution is an unproven theory. If what its fundamentalist supporters believe is true, fishes decided to grow lungs and legs and walk up the beach. The idea is so comically daft that only one thing explains its survival—that lonely, frightened people wanted to expel God from the Universe because they found the idea that He exists profoundly uncomfortable.” – Peter Hitchens
from the feature page of the International Express (UK), on 5 January 2000:
Peter Hitchens is right “that lonely, frightened people wanted to expel God from the Universe because they found the idea that He exists profoundly uncomfortable.” And the eternal consequence of such folly is really tragic.
The news that we bring condemnation to ourselves by violating the perfect law of God is offensive. But once we sully righteousness, it is no longer righteous. We cannot clean ourselves up, or restore our own righteousness.
There is good news, though. And that, too, is equally uncomfortable. It is that God Himself has provided a Way to enter into His very presence. It is via imputation… a propitiation… a heavenly exchange… wherein our unrighteousness is taken and nailed, once and for all time to that shameful tree. And Jesus’ righteousness covers us for all time.
I realize that some here cannot understand this, and tragically, will choose to remain in that frightened, lonely place… and are bolstered by sheer numbers of companions. To those… destined for tragedy, we labor on… praying that God’s grace is received. But when crossing to eternity, knowing the same did not repent (even if our own close relations…) we will look upon hell and proclaim “hallelujah and amen!”
But there may be one that, by God’s grace, can hear and responds! And when that happens on this side of eternity, we too, exclaim “hallelujah and amen!”
Jesus still proclaims… Whosoever will… Come!

Relativism has gone too far! Watch as a church copies porn to portray the grace of God.
Church! How silly are you willing to get?
How carnal are you willing to become?
This is just using the name of Christ for vanity.Print This Post Filed under views | Tags: apostasy, relativism | Comments Off on Grace Gone Wild
Hmmm… is church where you go to learn about Jesus and what He has done for you?
I didn’t know it was supposed to be about kingdom concept, vision and strategy.
Where does Jesus fit into this?

Thank God for Tullian Tchividjian! His experience has taught me so much,
Even though I do not attend his church, mine is about 2 miles or so away. I have met Tullian once or twice. His experience with the gospel has been the impetus for my growth of late.
I agree… whatever reprehensible thing someone has done to you is not unforgiveable… if you preach the gospel to yourself everyday!Print This Post Filed under CloserToGod | Tags: God, gospel | Comments Off on What To Preach To Yourself Everyday
Be careful… it is highly worthy satire!
Exclusive: In an exciting example of scholarly cross-collaboration and interdisciplinary research, textual critics and archaeologists have just published a translation of a recently discovered first-century letter, apparently authentic, written to the Apostle Paul himself. Scholars believe it was likely written in the late AD 40s or early 50s. The parchment was remarkably well preserved in a jar buried in a cave on the island of Satiricus. It is surmised that the author of the letter, Parodios, was an elder who had met Paul on one of his missionary journeys.

Wow! If the heathens can figure it out, what does that say?
Though we Christians, speaking for the ones I know who have learned to discern, knew it all along. The first obvious clue is the worship that is expended upon the man, and his outright acceptance of it. He has placed himself on God’s throne.
Second, is his lack of humility. When displayed, it is feigned and fleeting. These things tell me, he does not know Jesus.
And third, there is no possible way he could have been acquainted with the Savior under the tutelage of Jeremiah Wright. Mr. Wright taught a different Jesus than the one taught in the bible.
But my hope and prayer is that President Obama does come to know the Savior, and repents of his sins.Print This Post Filed under CULTure, government, news, views | Tags: Christianity, Maher, obama | Comment (1)
“And then somebody — I don’t remember who it was — turned and said, ‘You know what? What about Gibbs’ tie? What about Gibbs’ tie? That might look good.’ And, frankly, Robert didn’t want to give it up because he thought he looked really good in the tie. But eventually he was willing to take one for the Gipper, and so he took off his tie, and I put it on. And that’s the tie that I wore at the national convention.”
It’s a nice story. But Obama is not “The Gipper.” Perhaps if you pronounced the word differently, with a soft “g” sound… now that title fits, but somewhere in the back of my mind, I think that brings disrepute to gypsies, my apologies.
But the definition sticks… one who defrauds or one who swindles…
