    I agree with Russell Moore about 2 Chronicles 7:14 not being about American politics. Neither is it really for the church. It has application to the church as a way of learning about covenant relationships but it is not about revival of the church either. It was about the revival of a covenant nation. Our revival texts are best taken from Revelation 2 and 3.

    Open to moderation of that concept but I do not respond any longer to “If my people…” calls rooted in that text.

    Another good list

    Happy Theophany, everybody! Today’s hymn:

    When You, O Lord were baptized in the Jordan / The worship of the Trinity was made manifest / For the voice of the Father bore witness to You / And called You His beloved Son. / And the Spirit, in the form of a dove, / Confirmed the truthfulness of His word. / O Christ, our God, You have revealed Yourself / And have enlightened the world, glory to You!

    I am on my way to church and it is pouring down raining water, for which I am extremely grateful. Blessings of the waters indeed!

    The muslims in the story about prayer breaks should just pretend to be smokers who get about a million breaks a day 😉

    heard a funny report on Trump’s quoting Scripture (at Liberty U?)… when he began with “Two Corinthians…” some of the students said that thet thought he was going to tell a joke about 2 guys from Corinth…

    that said, if God’s people will humble themselves and pray, it can’t hurt

    I can understand why some folks support Trump, but what I cannot understand is how he is embraced as an evangelical and/or as a political conservative when he is plainly & historically neither.

    As a runner, I can appreciate the “Meeting Jesus at Mile 20” article (though a bit over the top at times). From my experience, the running community is quite supportive of one another. In my last marathon, I helped a younger guy finish strong on his half & was surprised to find that he & his friends hung out until the end of the full marathon to see me finish. Countless times in races, competitors encourage one another as they see folks struggling.

    It’s actually a lot like the way the church *should* act on a regular basis. 🙂

    Regarding the article “How did the fall affect the created world”, was their something there that Micheal or EricL think should generate discussion? Just curious.

  8. EricL says:

    Jean @7, I only sent Michael about 10 potential links this week. That particular one was not from me, so Michael will have to suggest what to discuss.

    I’m suffering through the 3rd week of the mother-of-all-colds, so I’m slacking on the job. Michael had to dig up more links than usual, though I don’t think the quality of the mix has suffered any. Sometimes, I think he lets me share my link ideas with him just because he wants to be nice. 🙂

    Haven’t posted in a while but I thought the “New vocational pastor” article was quite interesting.

    This model is nothing new, we can infer that the apostle Paul actually embraced a Tent making model of ministry during the early church era and he certainly was content equipping and serving God’s people with much or with little. I do think there are godly men today who are independently wealthy and who serve in an elder or pastoral capacity in their local churches. I say praise God for that blessing and for the freedom it brings in preaching God’s Word without the fear of upsetting the board and losing their employment. I also think that the Tentmaker model is conducive for healthy leadership and thus healthy churches led by men who not doing it for the money but because they truly love the flock they serve and are obeying their calling.

    Regretfully we are certainly living in an age where the Church doesn’t need more celebrities, bestselling authors, or more hired professionals but rather more men who simply love to serve God’s people. Biblical Church leadership starts at the top but its success is dependent on how we serve those who are often at the bottom.

    Driscoll’s P.O Box church? really? there oughta be a law – maybe there is one?

    however, i have a box and sometimes get mail addressed to “occupant” – is there someone in there? maybe they go to Driscoll’s church? dunno, but i don’t think so 🙂

  11. Em says:

    “It bears repeating: in Eve’s case antinomianism (her opposition to and rejection of God’s law) was itself an expression of her legalism!”

    article is worth a read – IMO – however, we can’t get around the fact that Eve did disobey by choice… i think that her volition played a major part… was she tricked? yes, but it was her inclination to look beyond God for Truth that did it… IMNSHO

    God knew – His plan is a precise one and is working, even if we’re not too clear on what that plan is…

  12. Em says:

    the dome of heaven… heard someone quote someone ( 🙂 ) saying that the harder scientist try to disprove God, the closer they get to proving Him – dunno

    appreciate the links today – we’ve got some 30″ of snow on the ground and it’s still coming down… blah

  13. Michael says:


    I thought it was a good,concise, description of the fall.
    I also want to introduce people to Third Mill that aren’t familiar with it…there are a ton of resources on the site.

  14. Michael says:


    You did well.
    It was especially helpful today as I have been tied up since I woke up.
    Get well…

    Good morning everyone, enjoy your day in Sky Dome!

    Why does Throckmorton’s story about Driscoll’s PO Boxes remind me of this?

  17. Em says:

    Pastor Dread., beware of any label that ends is ‘ism’ 🙂
