I am truly dismayed at the backlash against John Piper and his letter which I discussed yesterday. As I perused social media, I couldn't believe the hatred that spewed from those who call themselves "Christian." It was clear that if they did read his letter, they totally missed his point. All too often, their conclusion … Continue reading Do We Want Peace? Then Reconcile.
I just read John Piper's recent article "Policies, Persons, and Paths to Ruin, Pondering the Implications of the 2020 Election" and plan to review at least some of the many responses that are out there. In case you haven't read it, I've added the link below. Indeed, I suggest you read it. It covers many … Continue reading Regarding John Piper
I read a book over the weekend. Actually, it was a booklet. Very rarely do I actually finish a book. All too often, I get distracted and am off to the next interesting title. Honestly, I think most books could easily be a fraction in their length. I've been told that publishers like to sell … Continue reading Differing Perspectives.
I know that yesterday I wrote about not being distracted by politics, so you might be surprised to learn that I purposefully and intently watched last night's presidential debate. I'm glad I did. In my opinion, the first debate was a disaster for Donald Trump, well for both men, but especially so for Trump. Why? … Continue reading Last Night’s Debate
It seems that I am getting close to having enough of the arguments hashed out about this presidential ballot problem to take it to the Lord in prayer. Two final items are left to cover. I'll cover one today, and the other tomorrow. For today, it is important to determine exactly who are enemy is … Continue reading Who Is The Enemy?
As promised, today I will look at the only other pro-life candidate on the Minnesota ballot besides Donald Trump: Kanye West. To be fair, I don't watch TV or bother with much media stuff, so Kanye West is off my radar. After looking into him, I've concluded that I'm not simply isolated, I live under … Continue reading Kanye West
In case I may have misled anyone, I am not settled on the issue of who to vote for President nor have I ruled out Donald Trump. I HAVE ruled out anyone on the Democratic ticket simply because abortion is such a firm plank in their platform and especially the forceful direction they are going … Continue reading Still Not Settled On This.
I was excited to see that Franklin Graham has been thinking of King Jehoshaphat lately, too! Saturday, he had a Facebook post encouraging Christians to participate in a Day of Prayer and Fasting on Sunday, October 25, 2020. He quoted the same passage I did regarding Jehoshaphat' prayer. 2 Chronicles 20:3-4 3 Then Jehoshaphat was afraid … Continue reading Day of Prayer & Fasting
"they all helped to destroy one another." 2 Chronicles 20:23 Yesterday, we talked about unholy alliances and how these made life very, very difficult for even good kings. It also serves as a warning to us, today, when we consider who we shall partner with. King Jehoshaphat had made marriage alliances with King Ahab and … Continue reading Jehoshaphat’s Prayer
"The Lord was with Jehoshaphat," 2 Chronicles 17:3 The King Jehoshaphat story is one of my favorites in the bible. He's the fifth person I would like to meet in heaven behind the Demon-Possessed Man, Nicodemus, The Woman at the Well, and the Woman Caught in Adultery. Certainly, we'll all have time enough to meet … Continue reading 2020-10-15 King Jehoshaphat
