Thoughts, ramblings, peeves, and guilty pleasures. ΕΙΣ ΓΑΡ ΘΕΟΣ ΕΙΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΕΣΙΤΗΣ ΘΕΟΥ ΚΑΙ ΑΝΘΡΩΠΩΝ ΑΝΘΡΩΠΟΣ ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ ΙΗΣΟΥΣ (1 Timothy 2:5)

Cart before the horse

This weekend Obama has stated that he is refining his position points on Iraq prior to his trip there so he can clarify his position.

Shouldn't he go there and see what is going on before deciding what he wants to say about it?

Make it So

The London Telegraph is reporting today that former president Bill Clinton was telling friends that if Obama wants his support he would have to "kiss his a__" to get it.

We have proof the support is coming.

It is well

We sing this hymn quite a bit, but for some reason this one hit me hard this Sunday.

It Is Well With My Soul was written in 1873 by Horation G. Spafford (lyrics).

The third verse is what really got me.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul

I do not have a cross to bear because it has been carried for me through the streets of Jeruselem. I don't have the burden because the Son of the only God took so he could be tortured and killed on it.

It is well with my soul...thank God

One Mediator

5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the
man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the
testimony given at the proper time.
1 Tim 2:5-6 (ESV)

How many mediators do we need? I guess the catholic thought would be that you need a priest to go to Mary, who in turn would go to Jesus, who would go to God. Because, of course, a son would never turn down a request from his mother.

I only need the One.

But what does the "proper time mean". Earlier in Galatians Paul tells us:
4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of
woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so
that we might receive adoption as sons. 6 And because you are sons, God has
sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!" 7 So
you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.
Gal 4:4-7 (ESV)

I have faith that I will be treated as a son, because God told me so. Please excuse me, I need to go talk with my mediator.

Maybe he'd be better off if he were a muslim

Obama's lastest attempt to distance himself from an out of control "minister" is weaker than the first.

He doesn't denounce anything that was said, but just says that he doesn't want his church under scrutiny any more.

Is the Christian attitude one that begs not to be under scrutiny? If you belong to a "church" that doesn't want to be scrutinized, run away and pray they are turned over to Satan and will someday repent.

Churches that don't want scrutiny don't have the scriptures on their side. They put themselves before God and hide in the shadows. God does not live in the shadows.

Obama's Minster(s) Problem

Obama seems to have a lot of problems with selecting his spiritual advisors. Either its not important in his life, or he is a bad judge of character.

How do those churches keep their tax exempt status with those kind of comments?

The scariest problem is not what these apostate ministers preach or say. The scary part is all the people clapping, dancing, and fanning themselves from the excitment. The fact so many people are agreeing should be frightening to the world.

Not sure if they have read 1 Corinthians or not. But nothing seems to be going on decently or in order.

Our church has been participating in a neat project called

Hopefully more churches will join in this effort to assist churches around the world. DVD's were sent to churches all over the US featurning, Dr. Jack EVans, Dr. Jack P. Lewis, Dr. Everett Ferguson, Dr. Bill Humble, and Robert Oglesby (my personal favorite).

It's a really neat discussion on "Why Acapella".
