JAG and Pilgrim, yâall just donât know how lucky you are. You could have been born like Christopher, with prehensile feet. Of course this comes in handy for him when he wants to raid Farmer OâNealâs orchards to make applejack.
There are many great books that are worth reading. Among many other books,I enjoyed the Harvard Classics in my youth. However, there is only one book that is miraculous in its origin and in its preservation. It were better to read the Holy Bible to the exclusion of all other books than to read all other books to the exclusion of the Bible.
The headline is somewhat ambiguous. Is it the marijuana use that is highest in 35 years, or is it the college students? I never met a person who got smarter on pot, but I guess it doesnât require much intelligence to pass courses on normalizing sodomy, demonizing Christianity, and legalizing larceny through the redistribution of wealth.
One of the main differences between the LGBT crowd and Christiansânot the only difference, of course, but a significant one nonethelessâis that they sin and are proud of it, whereas we sin and are ashamed of it. The affront to God is not only in the action, but in the attitude. Psalms 51:17âThe sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
If Benny is abandoning the prosperity gospel, I feel obliged to follow suit. Thatâs why Iâm practically giving away my book âHow God Wants You to Grow Rich as a Possum Farmerâ now for a love offering of only $499.99, and Iâll even throw in a free prayer Kleenex (sorry, Iâm all out of the handkerchiefs). If you order in the next seven days, youâll also receive a coupon for 50 percent off on any order for ten dollars or more at Possum-fil-A. To show that Iâm sincere about living a life of poverty, Iâm taking all of the diamond ear studs off of my goats and donating the proceeds from their sale to the tax-exempt Dr. Tim Evangelistic Association.
J4J, when I was a youngâun, there were only two places people could eat in Woodstock. They could go to the Old Dixie Inn, or they could stay home. Do they have a Chick-fil-A now? I remember when Perimeter Mall had one of the early franchises, all of which were in Atlanta-area malls back then. And youâre right, the restaurants donât hate queers. Queers just hate the restaurant and anyone else who wonât agree that their lifestyle is not sinful.
R.A. Torrey said, âMen tell us that poverty is an evil, and I believe it. They tell us sickness is an evil and I believe it. But the monster evil, the evil that lives at the root of all other evils, is sin.â When you and I agree on that, Jim, weâll probably be able to agree on a lot of things.
The answer John has given over the years is that psalms, hymns and spiritual songs are all psalms, despite the fact that they are three different words both in English and in Greek. Others have shown from scripture that there is no such stricture as that which John believes and teaches on the subject of singing in church, but when one is glued firmly to the saddle of a hobby horse it is nigh impossible to gracefully dismount.
