Some Things Said… (July 05)

Allstate manager fired for writing columns critical of homosexuality Allstate has fired a manager because he expressed his Christian beliefs concerning homosexuality. Matt Barber was a manager in Allstates Corporate Security Division. On his own time, and without identifying himself as an employee of Allstate, he wrote a column posted on several websites which was critical of same-sex marriage. An outside homosexual group complained to Allstate about the column. Because of their support for the homosexual agenda, Barber was immediately…

Making Choices

We get only a few choices in this life that make any difference. The list of in what and where that we did not or do not have anything to say or any choice in matters is much, much longer. We didn't get to pick our parents. That was beyond our ability to affect. We didn't get to choose how or where that we were raised. We didn't get to choose the color of our skin, or of our eyes…

An unnoticed incident of Koran destruction? On the very day the braying mob in Pakistan demonstrated over the false Koran report in Newsweek, a suicide bomber blew up an Islamic shrine in Islamabad , destroying not just innocent men, women and children, but undoubtedly many Korans as well. Not a word of condemnation. No demonstrations. --Charles Krauthammer, from his column "Gitmo Grovel: Enough Already," in The Washington Post, 06.03.05 Gods Word changed (yet again) This long-awaited revised text of the…

Redemption in Christ (2)

"When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philipi, he asked the disciples saying, "Who do men say that I the Son of Man am? And they said "Some say that you are John the Baptist, some Elias, and others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets. And he said, "But who do you say that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, "You are the Christ, the son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him,…

Things That Hinder Prayer (2)

In this article, we will continue to look at the reasons why our prayers may be hindered. There are many people who blame God when prayers are not answered the way they thought they ought to be answered. The scriptures, however, teach us that we may be the cause for "no" answers in prayer. Selfish Heart James 4:3 says, "You ask and do not receive because you ask wrongly, so that you may spend it on your desires for pleasure."…

California defeats 'gender neutral' marriage The California Assembly has defeated a bill to make marriage "gender neutral," dashing hopes among homosexual-rights groups that lawmakers in the nation's most populous state would become the first to legalize same-sex "marriage" without a court order. On Thursday, the last of three votes on the "marriage equality" bill…fell four votes short of the 41 needed to pass the Assembly. --By Cheryl Wetzstein from The Washington Times 06.04.05 Going nowhere We read wordy books and…

Redemption in Christ (1)

"In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace, which he made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence." (Ephesians 1: 7-8) To sin means to miss the mark. As the target is set and placed by God then to sin means to violate Gods Law; and that can be either through omission or by commission of acts that are in violation of that law. The apostle John…

Things That Hinder Prayer (1)

When we talk about prayer we are very pleased when we have our prayers answered the way we wanted and in a timely fashion. We are very happy with God when we see our prayers being answered. But when we do not see our prayers readily answered, then many times we like to play the blame game. Sometimes we want to blame God for what seems to be unanswered prayer. I would like for us to see that when our…

Finding Real Faith

Many Christians believe that God requires them to have "blind" faith in Jesus. I recently saw a television show where a person challenged a proclaimed Christian to prove that there is a God and that Jesus raised from the dead. The proclaimed Christian's defense was simply that she felt that there was a God. But this is foreign to the scriptures in regards to a person knowing if there is a God. As we will notice in this article, the…

True Discipleship With Jesus

There is no doubt in my mind that there is one of Jesus apostles that has received a "bad rap." To mention his name will automatically conjure in ones mind a certain characteristic about him based upon one isolated incident. When I say the name "Thomas" most people automatically place the description in front of his name "Doubting." But there are other recorded incidents of Thomas life that have been ignored. In this lesson I want to look at the…
