you see a man with a great deal of religion displayed
in his shop window, you may depend upon it, he keeps
a very small stock of it within.”
man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship
Him, than can a lunatic put out the sun by scrawling the
word 'darkness' on the walls of his cell."
never been less fashionable in this country than right now
to be a Christian, or a Conservative. The Conservative Christian
is to 21st Century America what the Jew was to 1930s Germany.
that to be a conservative is to think for yourself, and
not subject yourself to radical liberal groups who play
the part of the "Thought Police" by attempting
to crush the individual. Those on the so-called "tolerent"
Left are the ones defaming and ridiculing the beliefs of
others, especially Christians. Why?
my theory: The world hates Christians. Always have. Just as Christ was hated, so his followers
are hated, and the haters' boldness grows with each generation.
All other religions are exempt from this hatred (you don't
hear many Buddhist jokes, do you?), and are given respect
by the world. But Christianity is dissed at every opportunity.
televangelists give the world plenty of ammunition! What
a blasphemy they are, selling Jesus like cheap jewelry.
Never send money to television ministries. If God wants
them to succeed, He'll find a way. Your $100 only lines
their pockets. Give it to the poor instead.
am a Christian. That is, I believe that Jesus is the son of
God, sent by God to die as a ransom for his people so that
we may forever be recipients of God's grace.
believe that "religion" can be a dangerous construct
of mankind that can actually lead people away from knowing
who God is. However, mankind's flawed constructs do not discredit
who God is any more than a torn page in a book discredits
the author. Dealing with it is just part of living on this
in the sovereign grace of the Supreme God drives all that
I do, and is the absolute basis of who I am. If you are
not a Christian, please consider what it really means before
you pass judgement. Here's a good place to start your research:
I recommend the following podcasts to all Christians.
They are an excellent way to keep your mind engaged
and focused on the things of God, especially as
listened to in earbuds as you go about your daily
routines! These broadcasts are not exercises in
feel-good preaching, but rich sources for stimulating
discussions and rigorous defenses of the Gospel
of Jesus Christ.
