Dark Caverns

March 29, 2010

“The more profoundly our children know the dark caverns of the heart, the more profoundly they will understand their need for grace.”

1. How does one accomplish this task?
2. Can one do it alone?
3. What is the reason for all this?

Destroying America

March 28, 2010

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” -author unknown

Not a Fan of O

“Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide.” –John Adams, Letter, April 15, 1814

“Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.” –Benjamin Franklin

If you value freedom: Don’t let November’s election go by without voting these freedom sucking, power hungry Democrats out of office! Don’t forget 8 months from now that they were willing to put partisan politics and Obama’s ‘legacy’ over the will of the people. Wanna fight back? Let’s show them that the ‘will of the people’ is that they aren’t in office any more.

Wouldn’t it be crazy if Christians got as fired up about the Gospel and the mission of God as they do about health care?

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.”

What would Jack Bauer do?

What a Saviour (revised)

March 11, 2010

Bob Kauflin has done it again!  He revised Bliss’ version of ‘What a Saviour’.

Man of Sorrows, what a name
For the Son of God who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim, hallelujah
Bearing shame and scoffing rude
In my place condemned He stood
Sealed my pardon with His blood
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Savior, You showed Your love
Defeated our sin, poured out Your blood
So we praise You, Lamb that was slain
We offer our lives to proclaim
What a Savior

Guilty, vile, and helpless we
Spotless Lamb of God was He
Full atonement, can it be? Hallelujah
Lifted up was He to die
“It is finished” was His cry
Now in heav’n exalted high
Hallelujah, hallelujah

When He comes, our glorious King
All His ransomed home to bring
Then anew this song we’ll sing
Hallelujah, hallelujah

All I have is Christ

March 7, 2010

What a wonderful song!

I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still

But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld God’s love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
Oh Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You
