• Question: What About People Who Say They’ve Gone To Heaven?

    Question: What do you think of these books and accounts of people going to heaven or hell, then God tells them to come back tell everyone about it? Answer: I will tell you from study and research, that ALL the books of this type I’ve looked into end up having one or more of the following: metaphysical and occult ideas/imagery, extra-Biblical revelation and unScriptural (typically man-centered) descriptions, as well as Biblical error. Granted, you have to wade through all the sensational, Biblical sounding scenarios and descriptions, but they never stand up to Scriptural scrutiny. Acts 17:11 …they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. (NKJV) Unfortunately, most of these books are accepted by […]

    Random Thoughts – May 26, 2010: Man Purses, Parental Excuses, Mamas & Obamas

    Can’t Teach Your Kids What You Don’t Do Yourself Parents are supposed to teach their kids not to make excuse right? Own up to your faults, failures and responsibility. Don’t make excuses! Right? That’s a tough message to convince kids of when many (most?) PARENTS are the ones engaging in constant excuse-making about… their parenting. The other day I witnessed a a little girl stomping and screaming and throwing a fit in public. Her mother sheepishly explained to those near her “she’s just not a morning person. She’s always like this.” Puh-leeze… I’ll bet the little darling isn’t a “bedtime person” or a “take you to a restaurant person” or a “sit still in church person” either. This is not about the little girl, it’s […]

    Random Thoughts (May 21, 2010): Strawberries, Wieners and Dummies

    The Statue of Kiderty We are driving down the road on my birthday and Hannah says to the other kids, “let’s sing happy birthday to Dad!”. Everyone breaks out in song… I keep looking in my mirror and I see Landis staring, frozen, mouth open as wide as he can, bug-eyed… not moving, not moving, still not moving. After the song is over I ask “Landis, what in world are you doing? How come you didn’t sing happy birthday?” “Because I’m a statue Dad.” Well aren’t I the dummy. Speaking of Dummies Hannah (our 11 yr old from Ethiopia) is still learning alot of American ways and seeing many things for the first time. She was helping me put together something and noticed little stickers […]

    We’re Asking You

    From Brent We’ve stuck our neck out several times to ask help for others but this time, we are asking for our family. On the counsel and encouragement of those we trust and those who have privately given graciously to our family, we are just flat out asking if you will help us finish raising the money for Abby’s Wish (our next adoption). Please don’t stop reading… here’s the scoop: The Right Time Abby is in the final months of her chemo, over two years of misery. All she’s talked about during this whole ordeal is adopting her a baby brother or sister. That’s where “Abby’s Wish” came from. We have raised about $10K of the $25-30K needed to bring a couple of orphans to […]

  • Deserved Embarrassment For Christianity

    This video is what masquerades as Bible teaching, pastoring and preaching for many today. We are never to be ashamed of being mocked, laughed at and insulted for preaching the Good News Of Jesus Christ… but Christianity deserves every taunt, joke and embarrassment thrown our way when FOOLS and JESTERS like this shameful, absurd and flesh-following charlatan is followed by crowds of “Christians”.   http://www.fireitup.com.au/ An unloving response? Hardly. Paul would have rebuked this shameful behavior with the harshest of words; Jesus probably would grabbed his whip and drove him from His Father’s house. The days of great deception are on us so that even the very elect might be deceived unless God Himself protects them.  It’s hard to think ANYONE would take this buffoonery […]
