Month: November 2006 Improved sinners…

You know what’s so hard about disagreeing with the methods of the pdc stuff or the seeker stuff or the whole mega “church” stuff?  It’s taken as being tantamount to judging or condemning the “leaders” to the eternal abyss or the lake of fire or whatever other word it’s called. And that’s not what I’m intending here.  I disagree with some of the philosophies and methods and certainly their interpretations and definitions of both their job descriptions, the message story they read and the places and/or methods of what they call worship (if they call it worship, which I don’t know that they do).  But the individuals—the people? Well, I’d probably gladly visit with and serve them a meal and a piece of pie and a cup of coffee right alongside my family at the table.  So, it’s not them individually, per se, it’s all the stuff.  Hey, that’s a continue reading

Month: November 2006 and it goes on and on

the dialectic praxis and the pdl and denial of the real Truth of the Word. Watch what’s going on—be very careful, listen and hold everything up to Scripture.  Not the message story, but the Bible – not a modern day ‘best-seller’ but the preserved Word of God. So, right before our eyes, the sand is shifting. I believe that Berit Kjos has the most carefully documented, well organized and succinct account: http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/006/pd-deception.htm

No time or energy to write, but didn’t want to miss the op to post a link. More on the peaceful (and let us not forget to also add) tolerant Syria – this, according to one of America’s most influential pastors. I’m guessing poli-sci wasn’t a favourite course or maybe he doesn’t really get into reading current events. ps – the audio clip is a 3/4 scroll down the article

This oughtta just grip you. Faith Leaders Deserve a Shot at Creating Peace on Earth. I’m thinking: what?!?! Colossians 2.6-10 6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: It seems to be that right before our eyes we’re witnessing prophesy.  In yet another, “I have no mouth and yet I must scream,” moment: O, how I pray for the church in America.  The ways of some “leaders” continue reading

Month: November 2006 Is it peaceful?

Do you have any idea -even a small notion- of islam ? Obsession – Radical Islam’s War Against the West And then… only in America… Can a man separate himself (or actions) from his beliefs? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1Qwr-LMFZc The LORD blessed our nation for centuries and for centuries America praised and thanked Him for His gracious gift of life, land, liberty and freedom. As we’ve witnessed decades of decline, we now see the results or the fruit of foolishness of a nation who, though once prosperous, has turned from the LORD and for doing so, can only reap destruction. For lack of wisdom, people perish. For lack of wisdom, understanding, faith and righteousness: nations are destroyed. Psalm 107 1 O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. 2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of continue reading

Month: November 2006 Unspoken Requests

I have wondered many times over the years why “the church” has had such little impact on or in America—original impact aside. Consider the avalanche of reading and audio/visual materials. Consider the “churches” and universities and seminaries. Considerable is an understatement, to say the least. I was reading a news story this morning about a man who, visiting the Supreme Court building, was told by the tour-guide in Washington DC that the inscriptions were the “…ten amendments.” I had a revelation of sorts… it sort of goes along with my thoughts on that news piece and another thought that often times our involvement in “church” is like a weekly bus ride or a Sunday bus ride. I know that many are offended by that comment for their experience is not like that. However, for many, it is that and more (or less, really). For many, “attendance” is very “satisfying” and continue reading

Month: November 2006 A Study…

says that “Television, Filmaking industries are Big Polluters.” But, then, you knew that. O, I see, they’re talking: environmental. I was thinking something else.

Month: November 2006 The Tender Mercies of the LORD

We’re home again and it’s really incredibly sweet to be here tonight.  As I look out the window and see the reflection of lights—reflection of lights?!?!? my senses are jangled as we do not ordinarily have “lake front” property…  The flood waters are receding but will likely remain in the farmlands for quite a while.  We now see, in a whole new light, the merciful kindness of the LORD and praise Him for His tender mercies.  We are humbled at His protection and provision.  I’ll write more about it all later.  For now, I have posted a few pictures.  But this one is one of my favourites in a tender hearted sort of way. more pics here.

Month: November 2006 a flood of thoughts

We’ve had an interesting few days as we’ve watched the Snohomish River rise and then overflow its banks and flood the surrounding valley and farmlands – as have many of Western Washington’s rivers!  Floods don’t occur without a bit of excitment for our family.  And excitement we’ve had!  More later as this slice of life will no doubt linger a bit.

Month: November 2006 just a check in

I got to thinking… it probably seems from time to time that I forget I have a weblog. It’s not that I don’t want to write or even that I don’t really have time to write – instead, I just don’t have the bloggiest idea what thing to take time to describe or relate. So, no blogging today. We’ve got a River to watch. http://www.nwrfc.noaa.gov/river/station/flowplot/flowplot.cgi?quick=single&id=SNAW1
