Let God be true, and every man a liar... Romans 3:4

I'm disappointed in you, Coach Lovie.

You are one of the good guys. If I had a son who played football I’d want him to play for you. If you were single I’d want my sister to marry you. I am sure you have many good reasons to support a candidate. It is disappointing that you are basing your support for a candidate on the color of his skin.

Look at a calendar. The year is 2012.

The Theology of Winoism

“I used to be all messed up on drugs till I found the Lord. Now I’m all messed up on the Lord.” Cheech & Chong, Big Bambu album (1972)

“It was for freedom that Christ set us free. Therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” Galations 5:1
It looks like LSD is making a comeback as a cure for alcoholism. Oh, but it gets better:
Why would hallucinogens be suited for these kinds of treatments? Johnson said people taking the drugs in the studies he's helped with report that it is "one of the most meaningful experiences — or the most meaningful — in their life."

Some says the "trip" changes the direction of their lives and can trigger a redefinition of how they see themselves. That could be as profound as, "I'm now a nondrinker, or whatever the addiction may be," he said.

Some of us reading this have had “the most meaningful experience” in our lives, an experience that would “trigger a redefinition” of how we see ourselves. And we did it without dropping acid. How bad off is this world that the idea of repenting before God is so terrible that scientists recommend using drugs to simulate the salvation experience?

I don't believe it

"It is He (God) who changes the times and the epochs;
He removes kings and establishes kings;
He gives wisdom to wise men
And knowledge to men of understanding."   Daniel 2:21

I do not believe the words in bold.  They are true of course, I just don't believe them.  The evidence of belief is to act on the belief, and I don't.  I worry about the establishment and removal of kings in places and at times where I should  have thoughts devoted to only one King. 

I downloaded a sermon from Bible teacher John MacArthur which deals with this issue.  I am afraid to listen to it, because like all good preachers he will be telling me things I don't want to hear.

I'm Back

Facebook cannot hold me.  So I have revived the blog.  You will see on the right the start of a bloglist.  The first blog is by Evelyn, a God-fearing Christian woman married to a God-fearing Christian man (You'd be surprised how often that happens.).  Her blog is about issues concerning her son Samuel, who has a rare form of dwarfism.  Samuel was expected to live for a few weeks.  He has exceeded those expectations by about....six years.  (Goodness, is Samuel going to be seven in August?)

You want to visit her blog because it is prettier than mine.  And Evelyn is a much nicer person than I.  And unlike me, she is sane.  And Samuel is a really neat kid.
