Happy St.Pat's Day


Tuesday, February 16, 2010


In fitting with the past Valentine's day here is a very good chapter out of the KJV Bible.

1 Corinthians 13
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 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, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Just to put things into perspective.

Brief Update

Not a lot going on but I am happy that January is over as I find it a very tough month as it is after the holidays and you are right smack dab in the middle of winter. I am motoring along with my coursework and job and am counting the days until spring.

My Two Cents On Robertson

This is likely to set back Christianity back a few years. Yes,this is about Pat Robertson's comments on Haiti.

It seems like putting his foot in his mouth is second nature. I have to say I'm getting very, very tired of this nonsense as an evangelical having to almost defend statements like this. Then again I could say that it is why I look to Christ and not televangelists like Robertson. Anyways, I just have to say this is time for all believers to give to Haiti(actually anyone who can) and shine rather try to interpret this as some sort of judgment. Also, pray the people of this nation.

More On Books

With my last book review I have decided to briefly look at a few others that I have read fairly recently.

The Jesus I Never Knew by Phillip Yancey
Similar to the End Of Religion it that it shows the true Jesus of the Bible. Also, the author talks
about his days growing up in a fundamentalist church in the Deep South during the days of
segregation which was a bonus. Recommended for any believer as a good read as it looks at
what Jesus came to Earth to accomplish.

Fearless by Max Lucado
The title says it all as it is another great book by Pastor Lucado. Has both Biblical and earthly
illustrations to overcome fear and doubt not to mention anxiety.

The Celtic Path Of Prayer by Calvin Miller
Really illustrates how the ancient Celts turned prayer not only into an art form but as a
means of union with God. Also, the author manages to show how Celts used some of their
old pagan beliefs and Incorporated into communion with Christ. Best part the praying to each
person of the Trinity.

Call Of The Wild by Jack London
One of the great classics of literature as the author give one a desire to see nature. Warning
may be a hard read for any dog lover as there is cruelty to dogs throughout the book in
great detail. The ending is very haunting as the main character Buck really becomes one with

There may be others to come as I have a lot more books sitting on my selves to be read.

End Of Religion

I have another book review here as I just finished reading The End Of Religion by Bruxy Cavey. I have to admit I was a little weary when I first pick it up. As being something of a traditionalist I was afraid of it being a let's knock down everything a start over rants but as I read it it was more of a pro-Christ let's peel back the layers of Christianity to follow Him.
The theme of book is how religion gets in the way of following Jesus Christ and the message He had for the world. The author not only targets Christianity but other world religions in how they rely on ritual and works in order to get closer to God and how empty ritual can lead to us losing our first love and we can be open to hatred and hardheartedness.
Several themes are touched on such as Biblical fundamentalism,nationalism, the church's not so glorious history and even human relationships. That it always stuck to heart of the matter which is Jesus Christ and how He actually wanted to remove religion and to teach a better way. In the appendix it also talks about the word religion and how was originally connected to superstition was interesting to learn. For me it was kind of a case of finding the Gospel all over again. I recommend it as it is an easy read and if you are looking to find the true God of the Bible in the form Jesus Christ.
