The Wickedness Of This World

Just open your eyes and look around and you will see the corrupt nature of mankind and his sinful, self centered nature.

The evangelical Lutherans voted to allow openly gay people to serve as pastors.

There are a lot of Catholics out there who openly defy the church's teachings on birth control and abortion.

The above two examples beautifully point out the selfish desires of people who don't want to live by the standards of Christianity, but want to pull Christianity down into the gutter with them.

Hebrews 13:8....."Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever."

God is unchanging and unmovable.

Churches must stand like a rock on Biblical teaching and people need to realize that God and his values are bigger then they could ever hope to be.

It is the height of arrogance and it is a foolish folly to even think to make the church conform to the standards of this corrupt and fallen world.

When churches of any denomination cater to the whims and lusts of sinful human nature, they are committing de facto Satan worship.

The bible clearly says that Satan is the prince of this world.

The Pastor's Cat

This is a supposedly true story.

A pastor had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc.

The kitty would not come down. The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if he tied a rope to his car and drove away so that the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten.

That's what he did, all the while checking his progress in the car. He then figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the kitten. But as he moved the car a little further forward, the rope broke.

The tree went "bong!" and the kitten instantly sailed through the air-out of sight.

The pastor felt terrible. He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if they'd seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten. So he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping," and went on about his business.

A few days later he was at the grocery store, and met one of his church members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. This woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, "Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?"

She replied, "You won't believe this," and then told him how her little girl had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little girl, "Well, if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it."

She told the pastor, "I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and landed right in front of her."

Never underestimate the Power of God and His unique sense of humor.

Besetting Sins

 1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, (Hebrews 12:1, King James Version)

Why do some sins dog us so persistently?

Why do they cling to us with such a fierce tenacity?

Perhaps its because that is where we are the weakest and that is where Satan will come at us.

I know that since I came back to God, some sin habits went away, but others remain.

It really is disheartening at times.

Salvation Is Eternal

 14I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. (Ecclesiastes 3:14, King James Version)

 28And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. (John 10:28, King James Version)

We are saved by the grace and mercy of a loving God.

A God who sent his only son to die a horrible death as a sacrifice for our sins.

A God who loves filthy sinners like us enough to offer up his holy and righteous son whom he loves is not going to play some kind of shell game with our souls.

Those who think that salvation can be lost are entrapped in the saved by works mentality.

Yes, it is possible to drift away from God.

I did it for many years.

But God's love, grace, and mercy are unchangeable and unmoving.

God's Healing

When one thinks of God healing people of disease, its easy to think of all the people who die of cancer, heart disease, and the other big maladies, then wonder where was God then?

God can and certainly does heal people of the big ones, but to fully appreciate God's healing touch, just think of all the times you've succumbed to the flu, or food poisoning, or the common cold. Perhaps it was a tooth abscess, a sprained ankle, or a broken limb.

God has healed you numerous times. Just take a moment and think about it.

Why do some people not get healed and eventually die? I wouldn't even begin to try and guess God's will in that regard.

But all I know is what the Bible says...........all things work together for good for those who love God.

Sunday Paintball

Some adults, our youth, and I went to the local Baptist camp yesterday for our Awana kickoff.

All together there were probably fifty of us there. Not too bad, considering in was sort of a spur of the moment deal.

We grilled out, played softball, and then out came the paintball guns.

I'm new to the sport but I like it.

Running around in the woods, dodging from tree to tree, adrenaline pumping, knowing that any second you could feel the smack and sting of a paintball that found its mark.

Creation Moment: 9-11-09

Human Speech Glorifies God

What God Offers

 2And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

 3Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

 4And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

 5And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

 6Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

 7And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. (Acts 3:2-7, King James Version)

The lame beggar was thinking in worldly terms when he asked of money from Peter and John.

But Peter and John were filled with the holy spirit and thought in spiritual terms.

If he had received the world's offerings he would have been empty again.

But, upon receiving what God offers he was made whole.

God wants to heal us. Whether it be physically or spiritually.

Take No Thought

 25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

 26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

 27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

 28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

 29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

 30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? (Matthew 6:25-30, King James Version)

I believe that this is the lesson the Lord tried to instill in me during my ten months of unemployment.

During that time, there was always a roof over my head, food to eat, clothes to wear, and a car to drive.

Trust in God and he will never fail you.

 41Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. (Matthew 26:41, King James Version)

When the Lord speaks of the flesh being weak, it may mean that inside, in our renewed hearts and spirit, we want to live a righteous life.

But we are trapped in a prison of flesh that is driven by our lusts and our selfish desires.

The apostle Paul expands on this thought in the following passage:

 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. (Galatians 5:17, King James Version)

Christianity Versus Religion

Religion is faith in ceremony and ritual.

Christianity is faith in and a relationship with Christ.

A whole world of difference.

Obama And National Prayer Day

President Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer by nixing a formal early morning service and not attending a large Catholic prayer breakfast the next morning.

Modern Idolatry

The Old Testament is full of accounts of how ancient Israel succumbed to the lure of idolatry.

People of today are no different.

Today's idols are not made of stone and wood, but are money, sex, drugs, fame and other things.

I'm mentioning this because I gave in to the lure of idolatry for a bit on this blog.

I signed up with Google ad sense and it put an advertisement for the cult of Scientology on the page.

Well, I let if go for a while and was convicted by the spirit so hard that I had to take it down. The thought of having anything to do with leading people to that false prophet L. Ron Hubbard really condemned me.

When the holy spirit convicts you, there is not getting away from it.

Girls Who Cut Themselves

We were talking in Sunday School yesterday morning, and the subject of girls who cut themselves came up in our discussion of the works of the devil.

Suddenly, a couple of passages of scripture came into my mind.

 27And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.

 28And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.

 29And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

 30And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.

 31And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:

 32And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.

 33And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood. (1 Kings 18:27-33, King James Version)

The above passage describes Elijah's showdown with the prophets of Baal that the Israelites had a nasty habit of worshiping.

Baal and the other false gods worshiped throughout the Bible were nothing more than demons who set themselves up to be worshiped in order to lead people away from the one true God.

 5And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. (Mark 5:5, King James Version)

This passage tells of the self abuse committed by the demoniac that Jesus encountered.

See anything similar to what some of these troubled girls do to themselves today?

Like it says in scripture.........there is nothing new under the sun.

Soap Actress Claims Firing Was Over Religious Beliefs

Patricia Mauceri says she was fired and abruptly replaced for objecting to a gay storyline because of her religious beliefs.

Spurgeon on Apostasy

"In looking carefully over the history of the times, and the movement of the times,
of which we have written briefly, this fact is apparent: that where ministers and
Christian churches have held fast to the truth that the Holy Scriptures have been
given by God as an authoritative and infallible rule of faith and practice, they have
never wandered very seriously out of the right way. But when, on the other hand,
reason has been exalted above revelation, and made the exponent of revelation, all
kinds of errors and mischiefs have been the result."

Now That's Faith

Two nuns were driving down a country road when they ran out of gas. They walked to a farmhouse and a farmer gave them some gasoline; but the only container he had was an old bedpan.

The nuns were happy to take whatever they were offered and returned to their car. As they were pouring the gasoline from the bedpan into the tank of their car, a rabbi drove by.

He stopped, rolled down his window and said, "Excuse me, sisters. I'm not of your religion, but I couldn't help admiring your faith....!"

Doctors Recommended Abortion For Tebow's Mother

NEW YORK, December 11, 2007 ( - University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow won U.S. college football's highest honour yesterday. If his mother had followed her doctor's advice when she was carrying him, he would be just another abortion statistic.

But instead of a deformed child being born, God raised him up to be a mega witness for him.

The thought of Samson being chosen in the womb springs to mind.

The Plan Of Salvation In One Verse

Acts 16:29-31 (King James Version)

29Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

30And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

31And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Evangelical Lutheran Apostasy

During last week's biennial Church Wide Assembly of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the church affirmed major policy recommendations to allow for the blessing of same-sex unions (which practice will soon inflate to same-sex marriage) and the rostering of gay and lesbian pastors in partnered relationships.

Spurgeon On Gambling

"I can never look upon dice except with abhorrence. If you ask me why; I reply,—
Because the soldiers at the foot of the cross threw dice for my Saviour’s garments,
and I have never heard the rattling of dice but I have conjured up the dreadful scene
of Christ upon his cross, and gamblers at the foot of it, with their dice bespattered
with his blood. I do not hesitate to say that, of all sins, there is none that more surely
damns men, and, worse than that, makes them the devil’s help to damn others, than

Homeschooled Girl Ordered to Attend Public School Over Her 'Rigid' Faith

Amanda Kurowski is a 10-year-old homeschooled girl who performs well academically and is socially well-adjusted. But her strong Christian beliefs were reason enough for a New Hampshire court to order her out of homeschooling and into a public school.

A judge in black robes orders that a child be turned over to the state, how frightening is that?

This could also be a continuance of the issues that led to the divorce of the mother and father. Notice how the mother is for home schooling and the dad is the one who helped to bring all this about.

It wouldn't be the first time an innocent child was used as a weapon between a divorced couple.

This little girl needs a lot of prayer.

Episcopal Church Nominates Two Openly Gay MinistersFor Bishop

By Eric Young

Two openly gay ministers have been nominated to assist the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles as suffragan bishops, setting up another test case for The Episcopal Church, whose actions in recent years have strained relations within the wider Anglican Communion.

 27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (Romans 1:27, King James Version)

Spurgeon On Backsliding

The Christian life is very much like climbing a hill of ice. You cannot slide up, nay,
you have to cut every step with an ice axe; only with incessant labour in cutting and
chipping can you make any progress; you need a guide to help you, and you are not
safe unless you are fastened to the guide, for you may slip into a crevasse. Nobody
ever slides up, but if great care be not taken they will slide down, slide back, or in
other words backslide. This is very easily done. If you want to know how to backslide,
the answer is leave off going forward and you will slide backward, cease going
upward and you will go downward of necessity, for stand still you never can.

Charles Spurgeon
