The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”

Your Best Ham Now!

February 16, 2009

Seriously! Does this man OWN a Bible?

Joel “The Mouth” Osteen cannot seem to harmonize scripture or even use basic hermenutical principles. Let’s play shall we?
Thou shall not eat pork, shellfish, bat, etc.
Whatta weird dream!
It’s official!

Okay… After reading those we have a supposed contradiction. God says don’t eat pork, etc. but then says, “Go ahead!” So what changed? The Covenant! The prohibition on such foods fell under the Mosaic Covenant which bound the Israelites to a the Law. Part of that law was to abstain from certain foods for reasons which gave God glory. After the death and ressurection of Christ, God’s chosen are now in a Covenant of Grace. We are not bound by law, but by grace. If you take the New Testament as a whole you see certain principles laid out which echo law from the Old Testament. These tend to me in the area of morality. While our salvation is not in keeping the law, God still desires His people to be moral. All this is lost on Joel Osteen who seems to think that we are still under a law/works based covenant. We are not! Joel’s wretched theology will send anyone who follows it to hell. Paul was firm on the seperation of works for sanctification and grace for salvation. Look at Galatians 5:1-15, especially verse 3. If Joel wishes to keep the Kosher Law then he had better be prepared to use his wealth to start buying livestock! But be warned, God may not like them. The Law, the sacrifices have been taken care of by Jesus the Christ. To detract from that and (especially) to preach otherwise is to invite damnation upon oneself.

Joel Osteen repent of your sins and trust in Jesus Christ ALONE for your salvation.

Despite what damnable heresey may be found elsewhereJESUS IS GOD!!

Celebrating Hope

January 20, 2009

Today, many are rejoicing that hope has come. That hope is sadly misplaced. As a Christian it is sinful if not damnable that we place our ultimate hope in anyone other than the Lord.

Psalm 40:4 Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not turn to the proud,to those who go astray after a lie!

Psalm 118:8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.

Psalm 146:3 Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.

Jeremiah 17:5 Thus says the LORD: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the LORD.”

Jeremiah 17:7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD , whose trust is the LORD.”

Psalm 62:5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.

Psalm 146:5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God…

Psalm 71:5 For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O LORD, from my youth.
Now…  Let us sing a song of hope.

 The Solid Rock

 My hope is built on nothing less
 Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
 I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
 But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

 On Christ, the solid Rock I stand,
 All other ground is sinking sand;
 All other ground is sinking sand.

 When darkness veils His lovely face,
 I rest on His unchanging grace.
 In every high and stormy gale,
 My anchor holds within the veil.


 His oath, His covenant, His blood,
 Support me in the whelming flood.
 When all around my soul gives way,
 He then is all my hope and stay.


 When He shall come with trumpet sound,
 Oh may I then in Him be found.
 Dressed in His righteousness alone,
 Faultless to stand before the throne.


 Edward Mote

 William Bradbury

My friends, hope in the true Messiah who died for those yet sinners.

God’s Wonderful Plan for Your Life

December 18, 2008

Many people like to talk about “God’s Wonderful Plan forYour Life.” I think that’s a great thing! Yes! God has a Wonderful Plan for your life! I was recently granted an interview with the Apostle Paul and asked him about just that very thing.


Further comments…

November 5, 2008

I do not (yet) repent of my previous post because I honestly think it just needed to be said. For now, I’m still processing the results of the election along with much of the country. We (I say we though I did vote for the other guy, OBVIOUSLY) elected Mr. Obama in accordance with the laws of this land. Unless something happens between now and January, he will be the first President of African-American descent. That is, no matter how you look at it, a big deal. Some verses I’ve been pointed to, by other blogs and other folk I’m meditating on as of late to help me keep my focus where it should be. BIBLICAL NOT POLITICAL! So here they are… I’ll post my thoughts a bit later on in regards to HOW these verses should be lived out (in my life at least.)

ROMANS 13:1-7
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. 5Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. 6For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. 7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.

1 TIMOTHY 2:1-2
1First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.

Happy chewing….

Love my WHAT!?

September 11, 2008

Victoria Osteen’s first book, LOVE YOUR LIFE, will release next month. “As a minister, she reaches out to an enormous community of people who look to her for guidance, strength, wisdom, and encouragement. She knows as well as anyone that operating in so many different roles can be extremely demanding, yet she has managed to find balance, living her life in the unforced rhythms of grace. If you ask her, she’ll tell you that she loves her life and she wants you to love your life, too.”

((HT: Tim Challies))

And she’s following hard after what the Bible says!

“Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”
— Mt 10:39

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”
— Mt 16:24

And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.”
— Mk 8:34-35

And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.”
— Lk 9:23-24

Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.
— Lk 14:27

“Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.”
— Jn 12:25

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
— Gal 2:20

Can’t wait to see how she dodges or twists those! Then again, she is Joel’s wife….

Sword Slash (9)

Then the LORD will appear over them;
       his arrow will flash like lightning.
       The Sovereign LORD will sound the trumpet;
       he will march in the storms of the south,

 and the LORD Almighty will shield them.
       They will destroy
       and overcome with slingstones.
       They will drink and roar as with wine;
       they will be full like a bowl
       used for sprinkling the corners of the altar.

 The LORD their God will save them on that day
       as the flock of his people.
       They will sparkle in his land
       like jewels in a crown.

 How attractive and beautiful they will be!
       Grain will make the young men thrive,
       and new wine the young women.
— Zechariah 9:14-17
