Good Thoughts

You are never safer than when you are walking with God.

"I love agitation and investigation and glory in defending unpopular truth against popular error. " -James Garfield

Most people want to be delivered from temptation but would like it to keep in touch.

IT'S GOD'S RESPONSIBILITY TO FORGIVE BIN LADEN IT'S OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ARRANGE THE MEETING! - USMC

A nationwide Zogby poll of Roman Catholics in the United States found that they have a more favorable opinion of Muslims, Mormons, Buddhists, and Hindus, than they do of fundamentalists (USA Today).

Another nationwide Zogby poll recently observed, "Everyone from the president of the United States to the mayor of New York made the case in a very public way that this is not a war against Islam, and I THINK WE A ACTUALLY HAVE A HEIGHTENED FAVORABILITY TOWARD ISLAM BECAUSE OF the terrorist acts of September 11" (USA Today).





Born After Midnight

There is considerable truth in the idea that revivals are born after midnight, for revivals ... come only to those who want them badly enough ... it requires a serious mind and a determined heart to pray past the ordinary into the unusual. Most Christians never do. And it is more than possible that the rare soul who presses on into the unusual experience reaches there after midnight.
- A. W. Tozer

Farmers Declared Terrorists!

Spokesman for PETA, Andrew Butler, called farmers "terrorists" because they raise livestock for human consumption. Clearly, this group has lost their minds and should never be taken seriously. Perhaps this inability to think intelligently is the result of some protein deficiency brought on by their vegetarian diets. Yet, if it is any consolation, the Bible says this very thing is a sign of the last days. Read I Tim. 4:l: "In the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; ... 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth." - Editor





Honor from the World

The American Music Awards had added a "Contemporary Inspirational' category to its-awards presentations. Executive Producer Dick Clark said, "The time has now come to include Contemporary Inspiration artists and recognize just how strong a force they have become in the world of music." This reminds us of how worldly Contemporary Christian Music is. The world recognizes its own. The Lord Jesus Christ said, "If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but / have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you" (John 15:19). Let's face it, most fundamental Baptist churches are not far behind this brand of Christianity. We are allowing music in our churches today that we wouldn't have considered a generation ago. Why? It's what our worldly churches want and we want their approval! - Editor





Leadership

Taliban leader Mullah Omar fled his headquarters just before it was bombed a couple of weeks ago. Ironically, he then ordered his men to stand their ground and fight to the death. No one has seen leadership like this since Bill Clinton gave the opening prayer at a Promise Keepers meeting.
