Chairs

Sometimes God calls us to move from where we are to where He wants us to be.
If we want to get closer to Him, it means leaving comfort and heading into the unknown.
It can be as complicated as a complete life change… or as simple as giving up a chair.

Make us whole

Pieces…from our lost jobs.
Pieces…from our bad choices.
Pieces…from our failing health.
Pieces…from our broken families.
Pieces…Take them JESUS and put us back together.
Make us whole we pray. Amen!

What We Learned

On September 11, 2001, the unthinkable happened to our country.
That day and the days that followed are forever etched in our memories.
During that time, we learned so many things we wish we could forget.
But even in the darkest moments, light emerged, and we began to learn some powerful truths.

Seven Days in Utopia (movie)

SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA (IMDb) follows the story of Luke Chisolm (Lucas Black), a talented young golfer set on making the pro tour. When his first big shot turns out to be a very public disaster, Luke escapes the pressures of the game and finds himself unexpectedly stranded in Utopia, Texas, home to eccentric rancher Johnny Crawford (Robert Duvall). But Johnny’s more than meets the eye, and his profound ways of looking at life force Luke to question not only his past choices, but his direction for the future.

The movie is based on David L. Cook’s best-selling book Golf’s Sacred Journey: Seven Days at the Links of Utopia.

Slujitorul credincios şi înţelept

În două dintre Evanghelii (Matei şi Luca) ni se oferă parabola slujitorului (robului) credincios şi înţelept.
E vorba despre un om care, urmînd să plece pentru o perioadă de timp nedeterminată, îl pune pe unul dintre slujitorii săi, mai mare peste toţi ceilalţi, cu îndatorirea „să le dea hrană la timp“.
Dacă îşi va face treaba conştiincios, slujitorul acesta va binemerita, la întoarcerea stăpînului, să fie pus „peste toate avuţiile sale“.
Dacă nu, dacă se va comporta asemenea unui vătaf brutal şi se va lăsa ademenit de plăcerile şefiei, slujitorul va plăti cu viaţa şi cu sufletul (va fi „despicat în două“ – spune textul – şi azvîrlit în iad, laolaltă cu făţarnicii).

Joel Osteen vs. Rick Warren on Prosperity Gospel

După Mark Driscoll vs. Joel Osteen  (AICI), în privinţa Evangheliei Prosperităţii, urmează Rick Warren vs. Joel Osteen.

Does God want us to be rich?
When I hear that word rich, I think people say, ‘Well, he’s preaching that everybody’s going to be a millionaire.’
I don’t think that’s it.
I preach that anybody can improve their lives.
I think God wants us to be prosperous.
I think he wants us to be happy. To me, you need to have money to pay your bills.
I think God wants us to send our kids to college.
I think he wants us to be a blessing to other people.
But I don’t think I’d say God wants us to be rich. It’s all relative, isn’t it?
Joel Osteen (Source)

This idea that God wants everybody to be wealthy?
There is a word for that: baloney. It’s creating a false idol.
You don’t measure your self-worth by your net worth.
I can show you millions of faithful followers of Christ who live in poverty.
Why isn’t everyone in the church a millionaire?
Rick Warren (Source)
