I’m relaxed, and that’s not good.

Lol…when I asked for suggestions in my last post, I was not prepared to have it liked at all, I was expecting comments more than anything else… 🙂 Anyways, moving on.

I am sure many of you have heard of the persecutions happening to the Christians, Yazidis, and other minorities in northern Iraq.  The atrocities committed are brutally savage and makes you wonder whether this ISIS militants are even human.

Here are a few news articles that I found with a quick search:

Hereherehere, and here(news video+written article).

It is times like this that should make us stop and reflect on our own walk with God.  In the country that I believe many of you live in, you are able to pull out the Bible, while on the street, and not get a potential death threat.  You are able to say out loud and in public that you attend this so and so church and not return home to find your house burned down.

Yet, do we even bother to spend at least a portion each day in opening up that Bible that we own and studying it diligently?  While in other places of the world, a person’s head can be lopped off for the crime of owning a Bible.

Do we just go to church for every service and act solely as a benchwarmer?  While in other places of the world, families are torn apart and destroyed for the crime of gathering as a body of believers to worship God.

It is very easy for us to get used to having freedoms like this, and I am sure we have all been guilty of taking these freedoms for granted.  I have.  In fact, if we stopped to think about it, Satan has used the method of infiltration rather than persecution in the countries with religious freedom.

“…for he [Satan] is a liar, and the father of it.” and the devil knows how to use various ways – especially the internet – to distract and sway us in our fellowship with God.  The social media is just out there waving their banner in our faces, getting our attentions.

How much better would the world be if we did as this popular saying states:

Suggestions. anyone?

Hey, y’all! This is just a post to let all of you know that I am open to any suggestion on what I should write on next. Please be warned that I will screen through everything heavily, and if I feel like it’s a subject that isn’t appropriate, it will not be written on.

So, just comment on this post, or on the About page! I still have some things that have already be written, but would like to know what you, as the readers, are interested in.

What Dr. Adrian Rogers Said…

“There are things you will never understand apart from faith. Faith is the dynamic of spiritual wisdom. In the Bible, God is not explained. God is not argued. God is simply presented. And that is how He must be accepted – simply by faith: ‘…for he that comes to God must believe that He is…'(Hebrews 11:6)

“The skeptic will challenge you to prove there is a God. Don’t ever try to do that. The finite cannot prove the infinite. Just say, “Well, I can’t do it.’ And as he smirks smugly, you can say, ‘Now prove there is no God.’ Of course, he can’t do it. The skeptic accepts by faith there is no God. All people are believers. There are those who believe in God and those who believe there is no God, but all are believers.

“Science is the study of phenomena now existing. Back in the oldest book of the Bible, God asked Job, “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding'(Job 38:4). No scientists were there. There’s no way they can explain it. How do we understand it? By faith. Some say, ‘Well, that takes a lot of belief.’ Really? Seems a lot more belief is required to assert that nothing times nobody equals everything. That’s what they choose to believe. No wonder the Bible says, ‘The fool has said in his heart, There is no God…'(Psalm 53:1). God is the supreme fact, and the man who denies the supreme fact is the supreme fool.

“Remember, faith is not contrary to reason; it’s simply beyond reason. To go into the laboratory to try to prove God would be like tearing apart a piano to try to find a tune. It’s impossible…just as it is impossible to have spiritual wisdom without faith.”
