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!"

Abolish the Sunday School

While I don't think we arrived at the same conclusion for exactly the same reason, I definitely agree with the analysis of this Episcopal minister. The New York Times quoted him December 31, 1889 as saying:
“We have no need for Sunday Schools. They are of no benefit to Christianity, and should be done away with. They are only a place where children attend because they are bribed by means of fairs and entertainments.” – Rev. Dr. Pelham Williams

  1. Great quote. Thanks for posting it, Ryan! It's always makes me think, when reading the quotes you bring up.

    I think the title on this post is misspelled though. It should be Abolish, instead of Obolish.

    Keep up the good work.
