Persistence

205 years ago today the great Missionary, Adoniram Judson, landed in Burma. After 12 years only 18 Buddhists had been converted to Christianity.  In the minds of many, his ‘results’ were quite poor.  Yet he remained faithful, realizing that 1 convert to Christ is better than none.

VBS!

VBS begins on Monday at 6:00 and ends at 8:30, Monday through Friday, July 17-21.

Come, experience the Love of Christ in a Community of believers!

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.  Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Cor. 13:1-7)

The problem has been resolved.  Thank you for your understanding.

I Wish…

I have a bit of a confession to make. I wish more Christians cared enough about their own faith to learn as much as they can about it. I wish that Christians would take the opportunity of attending Bible study at Sunday School or Midweek service or wherever they have the opportunity to do so. I wish, honestly, that Christians cared enough about what God wished them to know (as he reveals it through Scripture) that they took the time to study that Scripture.

After all, when someone plays a sport they spend an awful lot of time learning the rules of that sport and how to play it to the best of their ability. I wonder why so many Christians don’t feel the same about their faith? Why can literally dozens of hours a week be devoted to practice for basketball or football or baseball or whatever while a mere hour a week is too much to ask for participation in study of the Bible?

Oh, I know the answer. And it’s a simple one. Many, many Christians care more about their hobbies and interests than they do their faith. As long as they feel fairly certain that they’ll ‘go to heaven’ they’re ok with knowing virtually nothing about what Scripture says. But such believers are robbing themselves of a deeper relationship with God and a better understanding of their own God given gifts and ministries.

I have another confession to make. I don’t understand Christians who have time for everything but worship and Bible study. I don’t know why they don’t treasure Scripture nor the presence of God in their lives through worship and study. I just don’t ‘get it’. If I had the chance to do what mattered most to me most of all I would take every chance I got to do it. And, at the end of the day, I suppose that’s exactly what most Christians do.

A friend of mine was skipping church one week when he ran into the Pastor on his way to Church. He sheepishly said ‘I won’t be there today, Pastor’. His Pastor replied, ‘ah, buy you ARE attending YOUR church…’ I think he made his point. We love what we worship.

I wish more Christians cared enough about their own faith to learn as much as they can about it. I wish…

America’s Moral Decline Continues

In its annual Values and Beliefs survey, the Gallup polling organization found that record percentages of U.S. adults believe it is morally acceptable to use birth control (91 percent), get divorced (73 percent), engage in opposite-sex sexual acts outside of marriage (69 percent), engage in same-sex sexual acts (63 percent), have a baby outside of marriage (62 percent), commit physician-assisted suicide (57 percent), view pornography (36 percent), and practice polygamy (17 percent).

The only two practices to register record low moral approval were capital punishment (58 percent) and medical testing on animals (51 percent).

America… today.
