My Resting Place~20 March 2015

Remembrance

Teach my soul Your Wisdom Lord
And make me rich indeed
Not of silver nor of gold,
Ill-gotten gain by greed.

Not by power
nor by might,
But in Your Spirit dwell.

And may my tongue
rest in Your Peace
My actions, thoughts as well.

My feet with joy to walk O Lord
Along Your Holy Way
My spirit’s joy redeeming time,
Just living day by day.

Though I am poor in this world
Nor fame or fortune have.
Yet in Your hand I shall remain

Written 12 May 2004, by R.G. Fowler of Blessed Memory (Meridel’s Younger Brother)

 

God vs. Atheism~Which is More Rational?

The argument for or against faith seems to be heating up on a daily basis. Those who claim “atheism” usually have very loud voices, but are they the majority? People of faith, most of the time, are comfortable in their belief and while they stand strong, they are much calmer and quieter. I remember a simpler time when people just believed…

Many years ago, we attended the Christening of a beautiful baby girl. Some of the guests only attended out of friendship, having already “lost faith”. The younger brother (about five years old) was confused and decided to leave before we even started. The minister went to him, asked his name, and if his dad had a car. He asked what the name of the car was. When the child could not answer he told the boy to ask his dad. *Note, this was all done in a very quiet, personal way, with the minister kneeling in front of the child to be on “eye-level”.  The boy returned with the name and the minister asked if he had noticed the letters on the back of the car. The boy nodded in the affirmative. The minister took his hand and led him to where the family were waiting. He explained to the child: The letters on the back of your dad’s car spell the name of the car-maker. They put their name on it so everyone will know who the maker was. This is what we are going to do today. With the words we pray, we are going to put the name of the Maker, God, the Creator of all, on your sister. Just like you, and all of us, she will belong to Him forever.
We were all very moved. The “just friends” in attendance claimed they had never thought of things in just that way, and after the short service said they had a new respect for “their Creator”. More important, was the fact that all of us, including a young child, were able to grasp and retain the fact that God was the Creator of all, and that we all belonged to Him. Simple? Yes, but why should faith not be? Does everything have to be dissected, labeled and packaged in a tidy little box? 
I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you,
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing;
therefore Choose Life, that both you and your descendants may live…Deuteronomy 30:19 (NKJV) 

For those who insist on science and philosophical debate, here is something to think about from Prager University.

Islam and the Battle For Our Minds

Reporter Eric Stakelbeck brings another outstanding report that points out the gross failure of the media to communicate truth on the dangers all people in the west are facing. He is joined by Michael Widlanski, author of the book, Battle For Our Minds: Western Elites and the Terror Threat.
You will see clips of government officials who are so intent on “cover up” they will not even “name the enemy”. Watch and listen to the very people who are supposedly working for the safety of the people refuse to speak truthfully.
This is not a new phenomenon! it has been creeping into society for years, but political correctness, corrupt officials and lies have placed the word in severe danger. For too long, government decision makers, the mainstream media and even the intelligence community are misleading everyone about the nature of the Islamic jihadist threat. We run the risk being sent back to the dark ages if we don’t wake up. 
In Stakelbeck’s words, “there is a battle for our minds going on and the enemy is winning…”  
Dear Friends, Please Listen Carefully and Pray!

Kirk Cameron~Did You Know He’s A Strong Christian?

This is an interesting segment from an interview of a successful actor who also happens to be a believing Christian. More than that, he has never been afraid of speaking out about what he believes is the truth. Interviewer Piers Morgan asks him if  he thinks homosexuality is a sin and he answers very honestly~which of course has stirred up the wrath of GLAAD~The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. (You can google them if you want, as we will not post it here)

More and more it appears that the media, TV and movies have taken an anti-Bible attitude. Judeo-Christian beliefs, such as marriage being between a man and a woman are mocked, and anyone who dares to take a stand faces derision and black-listing among other things. When a personality dares to stand up, it does make the news, but, as in this case the reviews are less than positive. One should ask, Why?


Kirk Cameron was initially known for his role in the TV comedy Growing Pains. He married his co-star in 1991, and together they have six children. He has made several movies based on his strong belief in God and the Bible. The first were the three Left Behind movies, about the biblical end of days. Next came Fireproof a movie about a young firefighter on the verge of divorce, challenged by his father to try a forty day “Love Dare” to save his marriage.

His latest project is entitled Monumental, and follows Kirk on a journey across America to discover what it was that once made America great~and to find out if the American forefathers left any kind of instructions that would guide people back to the source of America’s success. You can check the link for more info~the movie will be shown in theaters on 27 March 2012.

Below the interview we have also posted the movies for anyone who has not seen them. (If they run slow just click the YouTube box in the bottom right and it will re-direct you to the film on a YouTube channel).

Given the world situation today, can movies of this genre “speak” to people? What do you think?
