SCRIPTURE

“Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked him. “Only God is truly good.”

~Luke 18:19, NLT

QUOTE

God does not want our goodness. Our goodness is putrid to Him.  But He is willing to give us HIS goodness in exchange for our badness. 

~Yaakov {adapted from Oswald Chambers}

my thoughts red

The Rich Young Ruler believed one could get into heaven by being good. Whereas it sounds good, it is a very bad theology. Our goodness is not good enough to measure up to God’s standard which is perfection and we are not perfect.  Even the good that we do is vainly motivated which makes our goodness bad. Jesus did some things for us that we could never do for ourselves: {1} He lived a perfect life, {2} Died an atoning death and {3} Rose from the dead.

It is true that only God is good and it is also true that Jesus is God. Our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness.

A REAL EXTRA

The following is a letter to the editor submitted by Reis R. Kash and published in the Register-Guard of Eugene, Oregon on March 19, 2014. It certainly primes the pump as to comments regarding the quality or lack of political leadership in this country. I have done no editing so get our your dictionary and enjoy.

Those who compare the bare-chested conqueror of the Crimea with the metro-sexual ruler of the United States and find our emperor weak to the point of deserving ridicule miss the essential strength of Obama. It’s no ordinary weakling who can turn a once-respected Republic into an international joke; reduce congress to a gaggle of sniveling sycophants; turn the world’s finest medical system into a failed third-rate socialist nightmare with a stroke of the pen; shatter our constitution without attempted recourse by the sons and daughters of frontiersmen and pioneers whose blood was used to write the inspired document; and turn the people our once-united states into a herd of competing minorities who, like suckling pigs, are each afraid to lose his spot at the government trough.

So do not denigrate the nonentity ruler who has overcome his uncertain ancestry and ludicrous incompetence to do what no other king or dictator has been able to do in 237 year history. He has destroyed America.

Reis R. Kash, Springfield, Illonios

A sycophant is: a person who praises powerful people in order to get their approval.

The United States Border Patrol is asking everyone to keep on the lookout for a red 1951 Chevy. They suspect this car is being used to smuggle illegal immigrants across the border from Mexico and into points along the U.S. border.

If you see the vehicle pictured below and have reason to believe that it is the suspect vehicle, you are urged to contact your local police department or the U. S. Border Patrol.
