A Funny Thing Happened Today

I was sitting at a traffic light in a small town in Indiana today. A car pulled up next to me, and ahead of me a bit. I saw through the open window the man in the car passenger seat had oxygen tubes, and looked real sick. He was quite an older man. I started praying silently for healing for him. Immediately he turned around and stared at me. He wasn't moving around very easily and turning around to look at me was hard for him. I smiled at him, but he wasn't friendly at all.

Everything is Stacked Against Us

Whenever someone comes to believe the Truth of the Bible, it is an honest to goodness miracle. There is so much stacked against people seeing the truth, especially here in the US. We are inundated with lies. Schools indoctrinate us into evolution, and globe earth, and billions of years, and scientism. The television reinforces what the schools teach, and show you how you can have your best life now, and sin without repercussions.

God Gives Time

Noah was a preacher of righteousness. He was the only one in a wicked world. The world had become so wicked, that God was sorry he made mankind and decided to destoy them. But Noah found favor with God -- thankfully for us!! Noah listened to God and built the Ark and he preached righteousness, although no one apparently listened. Only Noah's family got in the Ark with him. It took Noah 120 years to build the Ark. God gave mankind 120 years to repent, but they did not. They did not listen to the warnings and they did not cease from their wickedness during that time.

The Beautiful Lesbian

She stands strong in the face of opposition. She is independent. She is affectionate. Often we find her doing a most loving thing -- adopting and raising children. She is the beautiful lesbian.

I ponder how God sees this creation of his. I think He must be weeping, just like he did over the children of Israel, His chosen people, as He rode into Jerusalem. “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her. How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!"

The Proud Libertarian

"God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble." 1 Peter 5:5

Why does God oppose the proud? What's wrong with pride?

The proud libertarian might say:

My vast knowledge makes me better than others.
I know the right thing to do.
If only I were in charge, the world would be a better place.
I don't need anyone telling me what to do.
I don't need any help.
I don't need to rely on a god.

The humble might say:

Life is Good!

Three day weekends, fun, family, friends...life is good. You have your job and everything is going well. Maybe you have all your bitcoin money. You have a nice house. You have good food. Everything is great!

Abundant Life

God is so amazing. Look at a blade of grass. You might think, what could be more commonplace than grass. We walk over it. Cows eat it. But really look at a blade of grass. God made this incredible thing! Out of nothing, God spoke and made grass. He made a molecule of chlorophyll. It can take the energy of the sun (that God made) and turn it into food for the plant. It can multiply itself so abundantly that grass grows in most places on the earth. It can practically grow out of the rocks! It has such abundant life, that we spend time hacking it back, it grows so much!

The Evil of Mankind

I've been reading one of my friend's travelogue, which has been very interesting. He picked up a hitchhiker, who had been in the military and the guy was telling him about his life and how he'd been in prison. This man had been in solitary with a man serving 3 life sentences for murdering his wife and children. Both the military man and this murderer describe blacking out and engaging in extreme violence which they didn't remember. In the travelogue, my friend spoke of the evil of mankind. I agree in some respects, but I think there is more to it than what is presented here.

A Story

The phone rang. Beverly glanced at the number. Daniel. She answered the phone. "Hey, what's up?"
"Hey Bev. I got a week off and a great idea. Wanna go down to Baja?"
"Sure. I got some vacation time I can take. Let's do it!"
Daniel explained, "The whales are down there having their babies. We can grab a boat and go see them. And I know a place where we can get some awesome margaritas."
