Who Would the Apostle Paul Vote For?

December 27th, 2007 Viewed 4287 times, 2 so far today

ballot I’ve been covering Huckabee a lot in the past few days– and for good reason.  Right now, my vote is his to lose.  But there are things that could make me change my mind.  The biggest problem that I have is that I believe that he believes that government is the answer to some problems that I think government should stay out of.  Which got me thinking this morning– who would the Apostle Paul vote for if he were here in the U.S. in 2007.

Merry Christmas

Christmas Wrapping 4This Christmas time remember the baby in the manger– the Gift that was given to each and everyone of us.  That Gift that was given without a credit card purchase, is just the right color, and is matchless in scope.

Jesus Christ– the babe that would grow up to die in our place, so that we might live.

Share this gift with those that do not have Him at this Christmas time– and receive joy in return!

Which is the True Picture of This Generation?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         Some of you know of Wendy Shalit as the author of Girls Gone Mild, but did you also know that she wrote an article in the latest Wall Street Journal’s online Opinion Journal?

What I found interesting was that she talked about the difference between what she’s seeing in young ladies and what Dr. Phil claims is going on:

I lost count of the number of times that the children portrayed their parents as clueless, frumpy or “just old.” It’s “just two different generations,” the viewer was told again and again. One young woman suggested that her elders were “jealous” because their wrinkly bodies were no longer attractive.

Makeup and Photoshop Do Wonders

No Such Thing as an Ugly Woman A lot was made of a picture this past week on the Drudge Report that showed Hillary Clinton looking old and run down. The fact is that these people are under tremendous stress and pressure, putting in more hours than normal, and they’re not young by any stretch of the imagination.

And yet, we definitely hold our women to higher standards. Take a look at the picture at right. The picture shows on the bottom nine women wearing their finest clothes and makeup and then links them to their regular selves at the top of the page. I’ll give you a minute to get to the other page and continue when you get back.

Jamie Lynn Spears is Pregnant

Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge I’m sorry, but I just have to bring this topic up because of a line in the article that announced the impending arrival of a child by Britney’s younger sister:

“It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected,” [Jamie] said. “I was in complete and total shock and so was he.”

What I find amusing is that she was actively engaging in something that she knew got people pregnant, and yet she was somehow in complete and total shock.

The Voice of God Speaking

As a child, we probably all learned a little rhyme to use with our hands that went like this:

Here’s the church,
here’s the steeple

Open the doors
and see all the people.

To which someone corrected and said that it’s actually the church on the inside, and they’re right.

One of the problems that I see with modern day Christianity is that we tend to be so focused on the church building and what is going on in it, that we miss our chance to impact others, and really miss what Christianity is all about.

The Problems With Huckabee

December 21st, 2007 Viewed 2852 times

As you know, no politician is perfect. This includes the Baptist ones. Apart from the problems with immigration and healthcare, Ann Coulter takes him to task in her latest column for things that he should get right.

Asked on CNN’s “Larry King Live” Monday night about his beliefs on evolution, Huckabee rushed to assure King that he has no interest in altering textbooks that foist this fraud on innocent schoolchildren.

Where We Are Headed

Ulrika JohnsonUlrika Johnson has announced that she is pregnant with her fourth child.  Normally this would be a moment of celebration– sharing our well wishes to this woman and her husband on their impending arrival.

What makes this couple different than many others is not their looks or status as much as it is to her current marriage.  You see, she’s on husband number four bearing a child with each.

You see, what’s strange in this case is that she’s saying that we should all think this behavior is fine because:

“There are plenty of men out there who have children, abandon them and have nothing to do with them.”

And this somehow makes both what she did and what these men did right?
