Did you see this?

  • The Obama website labels anyone who disagrees with our dictator president a terrorist. Click to see the page

    “In a new (but not surprising) low for the Obama administration, earlier today Obama’s own “Organizing for America” website referred to town hall protesters (and presumably anyone opposing his healthcare plan) as “right wing domestic terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic process.” What makes this vicious equation even more offensive is that the page on which it appeared was promoting a 9-11 healthcare organizing event. Yep. If you don’t go along with Obamacare you’re at the level of the Al-Qaeda terrorists who took down the twin towers. I guess “democratic process” is now defined as “agreement with our glorious leader.”

  • I’m sick of the hype over the swine flu. Why is Fox the only media outlet repeating the Reuter’s story?

    “So far, swine flu isn’t much more threatening than regular seasonal flu. During the few months of this new flu’s existence, hospitalizations and deaths from it seem to be lower than the average seen for seasonal flu, and the virus hasn’t dramatically mutated. That’s what health officials have observed in the Southern Hemisphere where flu season is now winding down. Even though you’re not panicking, keep in mind H1N1 may re-emerge this fall and winter so be prepared. Source: Reuters

1 Timothy 6:17-21 Living With Your Eye on the Prize

Before you begin please read the parable of the unjust steward from Luke 16:1-13. And then 1 Timothy 6:17-19.

After spending time on the heretical false teachers’ love of money in the Ephesian Church Paul has to shift away from the problem of lusting after wealth to the proper use of it. There is definitely sin in greed, but merely having wealth isn’t sinful. In fact, God has blessed us to such an incredible extent that in comparison to the rest of the world we are all quite wealthy – regardless of how we line up against our neighbors’ checkbook. So what does God have to say about the proper use of money? Properly used we can use the money of this world to actively grab on to the next. Look at the last phrase of Verse 19 where he says, “…so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed.”

Verses 17-19 contain a series of six commands both binding and then releasing behavior in God’s people concerning money. The first of which is aimed at our pride.
