Recent News – I Saw Something Disturbing

From a distance, I saw a demonstration –  a large crowd laughing and rejoicing on my TV screen.  I saw people waving flags and displaying signs about someone being killed.  There was victorious celebration in the streets in front of large buildings. It reminded me of the revelling in the Middle East after our Twin Towers fell  on 9-11.  Curious, I came closer.  I began to see signs of hatred and revenge on those faces.  “Must be those Muslims demonstrating their hatred of Americans again,” I thought.  Then I ‘saw’ the dog Satan slavering over the fresh bone of vengeful death. Licking his jowls over the raw meat of bloody hate, death, and war.  That was disconcerting, to say the least.  Now the disturbing part……   I discovered that the roiling sea of people were gathered in front of our own White House.  They were Americans.

Am I glad Bin Laden is dead?  Of course.  Do I savor the dubious ‘victory’ of revenge? Unfortunately.  Did the angels rejoice and God smile at Bin Laden’s destruction?  I doubt it.  We should be careful how far our emotions take us into darker places. There is a fine line we need to see. We should be concerned about how much we begin to look just like the people who hate us.   We should remember which enemy we are really “fighting”.  I’m just saying….

                            

About The Music Links Below

I don't own, and have no claim on, these music videos. The following are simply links inside my website pointing back to the original locations of the videos. The names of the creators of these videos are cited wherever possible, and only "embedding-enabled" selections are used.

The Basic Christian Library

"Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis. This is fundamentally what Christianity is all about.

"The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel. Another converted atheist presents His compelling case for believing in Jesus.

"Left To Tell" by Imaculee Ilibagiza. This profound work is her own extraordinary story of endurance, discovery of the Holy Spirit, grace, healing, and an astonishingly compelling account of the necessity for forgiveness.

Compelling Christian Fiction Reads

"The Circle" 4-book series by Ted Dekker.
A man is the bridge between two very different worlds. Sound familiar? Can he save both? This T.D. work is brilliant in my book.

"This Present Darkness" and "Piercing the Darkness" by Frank E. Peretti. Tales of spiritual warfare from a unique perspective. Stirred a small controversy, but sold millions. What are we Christians afraid of? Hey, it's fiction!

My Signature Story

"I AM NOT MY OWN" is the piece that inspired the building of this site. It is the story that this site, as well as my life, is centered around. This letter to you is the one i would most like for you to read out of all the ones you will find here, because it describes how profoundly the works of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit can change one human life.

For Your Reading Enjoyment, This Is Like A Park, Use It, Enjoy It, and Leave Everything Where You Found It.

The content here's not to be used,

But to only be read and perused.

If you copy it off,

My lawyer's not soft,

And your fortune is mine - you got sued!
