Exposure to the Son may prevent burning

Apply your heart to discipline, and your ears to words of knowledge. Prv.23:12

1/24/10 04:33 pm - Writer's Block: Back from the dead

If you could experience being dead for one day to learn what happens in the afterlife, and were guaranteed to return to life the following day, would you do it? Why or why not?
No. I have no need to. I know that I will go to heaven. I will go to be with my Lord and Savior. To live is Christ, to die is gain. 23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— Romans 3:23-25 1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1. 16know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified. Galatians 2:16. I know what the afterlife has in store for me, and for you. Death is too late to wait to square anything away with God or discover what is true or not. We are born sinners and therefore cannot enter into the presence of God. That is why Christ died on the cross for us. He died for our sins so that if we trust in Him and His work upon the cross we will be justified, able to have peace with God and enter His presence. How do you know if you're a sinner? Look at the 10 commandments and see how well you've managed to keep them. If you are guilty of even one, you are guilty of them all. Why? Because sin is in our hearts. Sin is not our actions. Our actions are born out of our sinful hearts. The Creator of the universe, the Creator of you and I, took on human flesh to be perfectly obedient in satisfying God's law and God's wrath by being humbled on the cross, nailed to the tree of judgment paying for our sins so we could have peace with God. Read the gospels, read the book of Romans. www.biblegateway.com, www.blueletterbible.org

"Man always has had a compelling urge to make representations of the things he sees in the world around him. As he looks at the creatures that share his daily activities, he first tries to draw or sculpt or mold their forms in recognizable fashion. Then, when he becomes more skillful, he attempts to capture something of a creature's movements-a look, a leap, a struggle. And ultimately, he seeks to portray the very spirit of his subject. For some presumptuous reason, man feels the need to create something of his own that appears to be living, that has an inner strength, a vitality, a separate identity-something that speaks out with authority-a creation that gives illusion to life. - Disney Animation The Illusion of Life Frank Thomas & Ollie Johnston

4/4/06 06:18 pm - You don't believe?

You don't believe God exists and/or you don't believe in Jesus Christ, or you're not sure. There's always the option of praying, asking Jesus to reveal Himself and His love to you. Asking God to make Himself real to you. You've got nothing to lose. For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16

TItus 3:4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that having been justified by His grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.

In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see tha kingdom of God unless he is born again." John 3:3

1 John 4:9,10 This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

Romans 10:9 if you acknowledge publicly with your mouth that Yeshua is Lord and trust in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be delivered.

There are a lot of lies and deceptions all over the place about what Christianity is, who Jesus and God are, etc. To know the truth one has to trust in the Lord, trust in His word. He will show the way.

Title : I Can't Do This
-----------------
I woke up late
Guess I’m never really early
I hesitate, only to fail
I get so tired, of procrastinating
I need a change

I can’t do this
I can’t do this
I can’t do this by myself
I can’t do this
I can’t do this
Oh God, I need Your help

I’m standing still
I’m oh, so peaceful
I can’t pretend, that I’m fine
I get so ill, crazy, agitated
When I’ve not really died

I can’t do this
I can’t do this
I can’t do this by myself
I can’t do this
I can’t do this
Oh God, I need Your help

Press into me
Breathe me in
Bask in me
You’ll be free to do anything

I can’t do this
I can’t do this
I can’t do this by myself
I can’t do this
I can’t do this
Oh God, I need Your help

Serving others feels great! (even if you are tired and still have things to do afterwards). And it's a great thing. It's a Jesus thing.

Scott Stapp - The Great Divide
You set me free
To live my life
You became my reason to survive the great divide
You set me free


Whenever I hear that chorus I am just wow-ed. I love my Savior.



Casting Crowns - And Now My Lifesong Sings

I once was lost, but now I'm found
I once was lost, but now I'm found
So far away, but I'm home now
I once was lost, but now I'm found
And now my lifesong sings

I once was blind, but now I see
I once was blind, but now I see
I don't know how, but when He touched me
I once was blind, but now I see

And now my lifesong sings
And now my lifesong sings
And now my lifesong sings

I once was dead, but now I live
I once was dead, but now I live
Now my life to You I give
Now my life to You I give
Now my life to You I give

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Let my lifesong sing to You
REPEAT 3x



I love this song. Casting Crown's CD "Lifesong" was a Christmas gift from Annie and I'm very grateful to have it! It's a great CD. ^_^
My Christmas was wonderful. I hope yours was too.

I'm thinking this is something I need to remember and enact in my life. "Don't make someone a priority when they only make you an option."

11/23/05 01:48 am - Opinion and fact, and no I don't want to debate so just read it

So yea, Disney's Mighty Joe Young, is a REMAKE! That's why it would happen to be Disney's Mighty Joe Young. Of course, being a remake it is not true to the original (which isn't horribly surprising, though disgusting).
After Walt Disney died the Disney corporation sold it's soul to the world, the New Age movement and thensome. Periodically they manage to produce pretty good quality films (that admittedly I do enjoy, even have a couple favorites), but there are still things even in those that aren't great either. Walt had class, imagination, heart and much more. He did his movies accurate to the stories he took them from, or created good, wholesome movies. Perhaps in this day and age of over the top, instant gratification and sex!sex!sex! the principles of wholesomeness have been degraded as well.
As for remaking an original film...there's an excess of that going on in Hollywood today. Here's a list of movies off the top of my head that are all remakes: Gone in Sixty Seconds, The Fast and the Furious, the Bourne Identity, Cheaper by the Dozen, Yours, Mine and Ours, The Haunting, Alfie, The Truth About Charlie (taken from Audrey Hepburn and Carey Grant's Charade nonetheless!), The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (btw the original BBC films of the Narnia Chronicles are no less than 95% accurate and practically verbatim to the books they only lacked in the technological advantages we now have, and still they do a good job there too). There are a lot of other films that have come out over the past few years that have all been remakes that I can't spout off the top of my head and it speaks volumes on the condition of originality in the movie industry. *sigh* We all have our things to be hypercritical and sensitive of, this just so happens to be one of mine. If I could I would put a stop to all the things about movie making these days that boil my blood, especially when movies are made from books!
