WEIRD THOUGHTS

1. Busy is like kryptonite for commitment.
2. You genuinely commit to what you deem important even if what you commit to pales in importance to what you’re supposed to be doing.
3. Talk is not only cheap, it’s available for free on any street corner or website.
4. I’m an American and I HATE losing….PERIOD.
5. I’m overwhelmed by the flood of poor Adele covers on Youtube.
6. The Golden Rule is one of the hardest aspects of being of Christian for me personally.
7. I hate disloyalty in any arena whether it’s fictional or real life. It just plain stinks.
8. Prayer is REALLY, REALLY, REALLY important.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

9. Do I really care about Gabby Douglas’ hair? For real?

10. There is no way in Gehenna that this year’s USA Men’s Olympic basketball team could have beaten the 1992 Dream Team. No way!

11. I really wanted to attend the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit. *Sigh*

Acts 15 and the Gospel Coalition-James Macdonald Dust Up

leave a comment »

I just caught this story earlier today regarding the resignation of Harvest Chapel and Walk in the Word pastor James Macdonald from the Gospel Coalition. I will only say that those who allegedly pressured Macdonald should read Acts 15. There we see the apostles and other church leaders addressing theological differences.

How much harm is done by having a platform where you do can just that?

Or is the Gospel Coalition more comfortable throwing stones at perceived heretics instead clinching tight those fists until they hear what a person actually believes?

Just sayin….

What Is A Heretic?

leave a comment »

“A heretic is a baptized person who obstinately denies or doubts a truth which the Church teaches must be believed because it is part of the one, divinely revealed, and catholic (that is, universally valid) Christian faith.”

I’m an avid Youtuber in that I watch old, rare programming I can’t find elsewhere. One of the things that’s annoying me lately, however, is the constant bickering between Christian apologists and self-proclaimed “exposers” of other people’s doctrinal error. Take this offering for example:

Now I certainly don’t agree with Driscoll on everything but calling him a false teacher?

Ridiculous.

Webcam power deactivate.

MEMO: Just because you have a few dollars to get a nice webcam and video editing software and a little Bible knowledge doesn’t mean you get to assassinate someone’s character or ministry. Too often, the greatest arguments arise over secondary issues that have nothing to do with salvation. That is a sheer waste of time. Period.

Blizzards and Pleasing God

leave a comment »

My church cancelled worship service this morning due to the blizzard. I’m buried under about 24 inches of snow. Long Island natives tell me that haven’t seen this much snow since they were kids!

Some pastors, however, chose to have service in order to “honor God.”

Since when is asking people to travel in dangerous weather conditions “honoring” God? Don’t get me wrong: I hate lame excuses people give me for skipping out on corporate worship. Still, there are times when such experiences are not possible. We have a long way to go as the Church if we use blizzards as barometers to determine how much someone loves God. Juss sayin…
