Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

The Episcopal vs. the Baptist

I found the following on a website and got a good laugh out of it.
I love the old story about the Episcopal Priest and the Baptist Pastor who were very good friends and decided to have a ‘friendly’ debate on the subject in front of the gathered congregations. The only rule was that each debater could only use Scripture quotes. The Priest went first and said, “Suffer the little children to come to me and forbid them not.” The Baptist then rose and said ferociously, “Og, King of Bashan and all his hordes!” The Priest looked at his colleague incredulously and asked, “What does that verse have to do with baptism?” “About as much as yours did,” replied the Baptist.
