Happy Thanksgiving

30 11 2009

Last week was Thanksgiving and I was thankful for the short break from work.  Emily and I went to her hometown and stayed with her parents in the motorhome, which is always fun… lots of pinochle and quality time with family.  We had our Thanksgiving on Friday and I was overwhelmed with about 50 cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews (and many more complicated-to-describe-the-relation relatives).

Emily and I drove home Saturday to have a day of rest on Sunday before returning to work… which turned out great, because Rebecca St. James was leading worship at The Rock Church, which made our day.  I hope you all had a great weekend as well.  As for us, we now have our sights on an even longer Christmas break 🙂

Seeing the truth in the remains of destroyed cities

15 01 2009

In the deserts and areas around the Dead Sea, Daniel Chew and others have uncovered very interesting revelations about the destroyed cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.  This video below is very intriguing.

I always get so full of glee when science is used to prove and support the events of the Bible rather than being used as an attempt to disprove them.





People are ALL born evil

17 11 2008

Get a load of this video, it opens up your eyes as to why we need to submit to Jesus Christ. The fact that we all could have been as Hitler is … scary.

I have never really thought that a little child could be seen as sinful, because you always see children in the light of their innocence.  But that innocence is their intellectual innocence, their souls are foundationally evil.  The part of the video about the 18 month old child grabbing for the wrist watch is both very scary and quite enlightening at the same time. Thanks to Neil at Eternity Matters for the video link.

The beat-box music in the video is a little distracting, but you should watch the video none the less.





You can dress up as the devil, but not Jesus

3 11 2008

Pick whatever costume you want, and have a fun time on Halloween… that is unless you choose to dress up as Jesus.  This 8th grader was sent home for dressing up as Jesus on Halloween.  What a clever chess game the devil is playing, making a Jesus costume “inappropriate”.

Massachusetts, it’s worse than you think

22 10 2008

Want to know what the Gay activists will do in California?  Well, all you have to do is look at what they have done in Massachusetts, which (I’ll admit) was much worse than I thought.  The following has been taken from this website written by Brian Camenker:

Anyone who thinks that same-sex “marriage” is a benign eccentricity which won’t affect the average person should consider what it has done in Massachusetts. It’s become a hammer to force the acceptance and normalization of homosexuality on everyone. And this train is moving fast. What has happened so far is only the beginning.

On November 18, 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court announced its Goodridge opinion, ruling that it was unconstitutional not to allow same-sex “marriage.” Six months later, homosexual marriages began to be performed.

The public schools

The homosexual “marriage” onslaught in public schools across the state started soon after the November 2003, court decision.

  • At my own children’s high school there was a school-wide assembly to celebrate same-sex “marriage” in early December, 2003. It featured an array of speakers, including teachers at the school who announced that they would be “marrying” their same-sex partners and starting families either through adoption or artificial insemination. Literature on same-sex marriage – how it is now a normal part of society – was handed out to the students.
  • Within months it was brought into the middle schools. In September, 2004, an 8th-grade teacher in Brookline, MA, told National Public Radio that the marriage ruling had opened up the floodgates for teaching homosexuality. “In my mind, I know that, `OK, this is legal now.’ If somebody wants to challenge me, I’ll say, `Give me a break. It’s legal now,’” she told NPR. She added that she now discusses gay sex with her students as explicitly as she desires.  For example, she said she tells the kids that Read the rest of this entry »




Don’t erase God’s influence!

7 10 2008

This Sunday David Barton came to the Rock Church and was our guest speaker.  He spoke about how the founding fathers of this great nation were nearly ALL devout Christians.  27 of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence had seminary degrees!  Take a look at these quotes by dozens of our founding fathers…

There are many people out there that believe and argue that these men were athiests and diests, but looking at quotes (all documented in the endnotes) from these individuals, it is extremely clear that they were Christians.

Currently there is a Read the rest of this entry »





The Fine Line

6 10 2008

Last Wednesday, the Rock Church hosted an informative event about Prop. 8.  If you did not attend that event nor see it live online, I have posted a link to the video below.

The reason our country has been so powerful for so long is because God was blessing this nation.  Our founding fathers (most of them held seminary degrees) created this country with God at the center.  Let’s keep Him there and stand up for Christian morals.

I hope that you will find it informative and will join me in voting “Yes” on Proposition 8.
