Harold Camping and Bart Ehrman

Papyrus Bodmer VIII, Original: Biblioteca Apos...

What do Harold Camping and Dr. Bart Ehrman have in common? They are both literalists when I comes to their view of the Bible. Here is what Camping was quoted on his view of the Bible.

Camping, 89, said of the rapture in a May 11 interview with New York magazine, “The Bible has every word in the original language … it was written by God. Incidentally, no churches believe that at all, they don’t hold the Bible in the high respect that it ought to be.” More

Why we need the Storm

2 Comments

I found this blog, Why we need the Storm,  by a woman who had been through the recent storms in Alabama.   But I did not connect her to the tragedy that struck them.

She is the wife of the man who is giving his story in this video, Mr. Crawford:

I am amazed by the people who can stand up and say what they say as Kelly does here:

If there were no storms, we would never rejoice over serenity.

If there were no rain, we would never fully appreciate blue skies.

If there were no darkness, we could not contrast it with light.

If there were no thunder, we wouldn’t enjoy the quiet.

If there were no turbulence, we wouldn’t need a mighty Stronghold, we wouldn’t know Peace in the midst, we wouldn’t cling to a Savior who holds all things in the palm of His hand.

I believe the picture you see in the blog if you click it is of their home or the remainder of it.

Rape: when will men wake up?

Dominique Strauss-Kahn sur un marché à Lagny s...

DSK

This has been a week about rape it seems!!

We have the DSK(Dominique Strauss-Kahn) story that has filled the headlines.   If you don’t know about that story you can read here or here.  Then,  I just found this article where French women are reacting to misogyny in their media and french men attempting to put Strauss-Kahn’s alleged acts into the French context–read, explain away.

Supposedly, the French political elite can get away with rape and other sexual acts perpetrated on women or men.

Next,  I saw two stories of how young boys were lead into homosexuality through rape at ages too young for them to even be involved in anything sexual. It is graphic but you can see their stories here or here.

But,   this one is the one that gets me–the massive assault on women that is occurring in the Congo.   And,  the very sad thing is that it has been occurring for approximately 10 years it would appear.  Well,   the story out this week is that the number of rapes and sexual assaults is actually much higher than previously reported.

Men, wake up!!  Men, rise up!!  Get a life!  The sex drive is a strong drive but you are blinded if you let it drive you.   God help us all in this area!!!   The values of the pop culture in America are not helping shape norms which prevent these type atrocities either.  We are all to blame in some way–I am.  I am contemplating what I should do about this–personally and globally!!

Danny Wallace: Freedom from an Abusive Past

Beauty in Contrast

This young boy did not deserve what he got from his dad.   What did his dad do to Danny emotionally and spiritually through physical acts?  I believe in evil and in this world, evil is constantly confronting righteousness.  This father, Danny’s father, was possessed by evil.

Do you need liberation from a dark past?  You CAN have it!!  Jesus is the liberator like no other.  You can give your life to him for the liberation that you need. Receive it just like Danny did.

Get help like Danny did.  He wanted freedom and he was freed from the strongholds in his life–you can be too!!!

Diaz

Okay, so some Hollywood-based female says something.  Why should we believe someone from Hollywood?  Why would anyone consider a “star” (of one sort) an expert on society.  Actually,  all we are getting is an opinion and in a free country–everyone can have an opinion.

Who said it and what did she say?  I am referring to Cameron Diaz who said:

I think we have to make our own rules. I don’t think we should live our lives in relationships based off old traditions that don’t suit our world any longer.

Couldn’t explain it, didn’t understand it, but I knew…

I heard this quote today and I’ll bet I have heard it in various forms over a hundred times.

A Christian at transformation time (conversion) said that was his state.  He knew something had happened–something good! But, he didn’t understand what had happened or how it happened.  He just knew, even though he could not explain what had happened to him.

You’ll hear these phrases in this video if you want to take a look.  Now this is a real conversion from a very bad state of being.
