Tatts for What?

May 31, 2011

“The SI report names at least 28 (OSU) players who allegedly traded memorabilia or autographs for money and tattoos since 2002, including nine players on the current roster.”

No, Just Normal

God was faithful in answered prayer of this young man being found alive and unharmed, after a CHBC member went missing.

The news caught wind of the event and began reporting.

But, being a former member at CHBC, I find this extremely hilarious that the news agency said this about CHBC:

“Capitol Hill Baptist Church was packed for Sunday services. The 10:30 service ran extra long, with members finally emerging around 1pm from the church building, which is located near the intersection of 5th and A St. NE.”

1 PM is early.

The list includes:

Bike or motorcycle helmets – They are meant to help protect in one accident, any damage might not be visible.

Child car seats – One that’s already been in an accident might not protect your child in another.

Tires – A tire that’s been in an accident is likely to be unstable and unreliable

Wet suits and swimsuits – Just don’t buy any used very personal products, especially if they hug your body.

Mattresses – Bed bugs, mold, mites, bacteria and bodily fluids could all be in the mattress.

Cribs – Hard to verify the safety of a used crib due to the scores of recalls and changing safety standards.

Laptops – More likely to be damaged.

Plasma Tvs – It’s hard to tell how well they are taken care of, and can be very expensive to repair.

Shoes – They become molded to the previous owner’s feet.

Hats – They are rarely cleaned before they are sold.

What would you add to the list?

Who do you believe?

“Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”-Matthew 24:44

“Camping first inaccurately predicted the world would end in 1994. Even so, he has gathered even more followers — some who have given up their homes, entire life savings and their jobs because they believe the world is ending.”

Who do you believe?

Verse of the Day

May 15, 2011

On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Selah

from the Psalms

Doomsday?

May 15, 2011

This wasn’t taught to me in Sunday School.

“A New York man spent his entire $140,000 life savings advertising his prediction that the world will end May 21, the New York Post reported Friday.

Robert Fitzpatrick, a 60-year-old Staten Island resident, said he spent at least that sum on 1,000 subway-car placards and ads on bus kiosks and subway cars.

They say, “Global Earthquake: The Greatest Ever! Judgment Day May 21, 2011.”
In a self-published book, “The Doomsday Code,” Fitzpatrick said the Bible offers “proof that cannot be dismissed.”

“Judgment Day will surprise people. We will not be ready for it,” Fitzpatrick said in an interview with the newspaper. “A giant earthquake will render the earth uninhabitable.”

If you want to set an alarm clock, the quake will happen just before 6:00pm local time, he said.

“God’s people will be resurrected. It is also the day that God stops saving anyone,” he said.

Fitzpatrick hopes that he is one of the chosen ones, but he could not be really certain.

“There’s just a little doubt,” he said. “Most churches teach that if you just believe, you will be saved. It is not our choice. It is God’s choice.””

Fitted or flat?

That is the argument that CA has brought to the legislative table recently.

“Supporters of the bill argue it will reduce worker injuries by eliminating the need for workers to repetitively lift extremely heavy mattresses when making beds. They contend that flat sheets cause workers to strain their backs, shoulders and wrists, and are often responsible for repetitive motion injuries.” (But it’s your job!)

I say, can we, as a nation, get any stupider?

BTW- this article reminds me of a Seinfeld episode.

For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Hebrews

A Hope

May 9, 2011

1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews

By Faith

May 9, 2011

24 By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter,
25 choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin.
26 He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward.
