SCRIPTURE

The wicked commit slow suicide; they waste their lives hating the good.

~Psalm 34:21, MSG

QUOTE

There is a way that seems right to a man but its end is the way of death.

~Solomon

A lot of time and effort is spent these days hating Jesus. I think it was in December of 2012 that the American Atheists launched a major billboard display declaring Christmas better without Christ. The huge 40’x40′ digital billboard was located in Times Square in Midtown Manhattan. Using motion graphics, the billboard proclaims, “Who needs Christ during Christmas?” A hand crosses out the word “Christ” and the word “NOBODY” appears. The display then says… “Celebrate the true meaning of Xmas” and offers a series of cheery words: family, friends, charity, food, snow, and more.

AtheistThis is the statement made by David Silverman [a Christ hating Jew] and American Atheists President. The same organization which Madalyn Murray O’Hair was president. They have less than 2,000 members which should tell us something. Silverman said, “This year, start a new tradition: Don’t go to church. You hate it, it’s boring; you probably only go because you feel guilty or obligated. Instead, spend more time with your family and friends—or volunteer. There are better uses of your time and money.” Silverman is a fool who is executing his own soul and doesn’t know it–which is what makes him a fool.

To a sane God-fearing conservative 2+2=4. Albert Einstein would agree with us, right! This is not the way the Christ hating liberals think. They do not operate by logic; they go by feelings. It’s like–spell Christmas. If you take Christ out of Christmas you have a boring religion like atheism. Where did we bored Christians get the idea that there was no Christmas until Christ came? Wild guess–could it be history! Liberals are morons and atheist are fools.

Thank You Father for Christmas; for the Gift that keeps on giving forever. Have mercy on the unbelieving world. Grant us the courage to declare our faith in Christ and our love of Christmas.

  • WOW! We had a great crowd in the GATHERING and I had 56 for preaching. I was thrilled.
  • Today we pray for those facing TRIALS and Kenny Holladay is at the top of our list. I hope to get to see Kenny Friday or Saturday. We have a long list of folks battling cancer including Larry Garner, Angie Blackburn, James Floyd Bailey, and some taking chemo as a prevention like Wendy Turner {Darlene’s sister-in-law}. I talked to Ken Tuesday night, Wendy is doing well. Hey, I know everyone has their own list, just pause for a moment and lift up a prayer for those who are having a difficult time.
  • I think it is settled: the SENIOR ADULT CHRISTMAS PARTY will be at Cracker Barrel in Hartselle at 9:00 am on December 5 which is a Friday. I have all the widows and I’m going to let the men pay for their wives if that is OK. My administrative assistant is excited and Big Mama likes the idea. I hope you like it as well.
  • Remember, no deacon’s meeting this Sunday: LCBS at 9:00 and worship celebration at 10:15 with a baptism as the grand finale. 
  • I love Christmas and Grandkids. I have a grandchild I didn’t know about until last night. She is 17 and her name is Billy. Unfortunately, she is not playing with a full deck. She is a few fries short of a happy meal. It was a shocking revelation.

Choices And Consequences

July 23, 2014

SCRIPTURE

If you really are honest men, choose one of your brothers to remain in prison. The rest of you may go home with grain for your starving families.
~Genesis 42:19

“Life is all about making choices, always do your best to make the right ones, and always do your best to learn from the wrong ones.”
~Source Unknown

my two cents worth.

Life is about choices, we all make them every day. Some are big and some are small. Some are between right and wrong. Some are between better and best but all choices have consequences. I live with regrets due to bad choices. I don’t think you will find many honest adults that do not have some regrets linked to choices they made. Take Josephs brothers in the scripture verse above, they regretted the way they treated Joseph.  A man in the process of divorce told me, “It is my fault Bro. Jack, all my fault.” I looked at him in unbelief and said, “It is never all one person’s fault.” He said, “In this case it is, I made a bad choice.” He was right about one thing, some divorces happen because the decision to marry the person in the first place was a bad choice.

 I know a woman who got to church, I think she sang in the choir; another lady looked down and said, “Do you know that one of your shoes is blue and the other black.” She made a bad choice and it had an embarrassing consequence. She thought for minute and then said, “Oh, I have another pair at home just like theses.” There is a world of difference between picking out the wrong outfit and sleeping with someone else’s wife or husband, whatever the case may be.
A man came to me several years ago and told me he was going to divorce his wife for a younger model and I think the idiot wanted my blessing. He said, “David did it and God forgave him. If He forgave David, He will forgive me.” I went into orbit, I said, “Maybe you need to read your bible all the way through and check out the consequences that David suffered for his foolish decision.” You cannot steal a man’s wife and then have him murdered without grave consequences and if you think otherwise, you are a fool. Hey, you are not an exception to the rule: that kind of twisted thinking is what got David in trouble. You roll in the hay and you will pay just like David: God may let you live but you will wish you were dead before all is said and done.

  • YOUTH go canoeing on Friday
  • BLOCK PARTY brain storm yesterday. Mass visitation has been changed from August 2 {Saturday} to August 6th {Wednesday night}. No final decision on cokes…May switch to Pepsi. We are shopping for the best deal.
  • June named our dog Lizzie. She is a loveable creature but did not keep the groundhogs out of the corn. I think she will do better once she gets acclimated.
