When God Calls Our Bluff - Apr 27

I've got an e-mail from a friend today and it got me to do some thinking. There are, for me at least, two rock-solid truths I have come to trust completely.

1) If it's indefensible, stop defending it.

2) You are under no obligation, none whatsoever, to pay homage to that which is false.

There are other truths of which I'm not going to get into right now, but these two maxims stand as solid pillars for me. Similarly, it is not enough to know the truth, one must ABIDE in truth in order to unlock it's power. Nor is it enough to abide in any old 'truth', one must abide in the CORRECT truth. There are people on this earth who are hell-bound because they cannot, will not abide in the correct truth. Is the concept of right and wrong purely subjective, forever mutating according to the whims of the individual? No. You see friends, God has just about had it with us. God WILL judge the nations according to HIS righteousness, not ours. God WILL call our (secular humanist) bluff. In the wrath to come, God the Father will ask us about God the Son (whom we call Jesus). Woe unto that individual, organization or nation that willfully chooses to rebel, rejecting the Messiah! You don't have to be afraid! You don't have to go to hell if you don't want to go! But you do have to make a conscious decision to ask Jesus to come into your heart in order to escape condemnation. Lay aside your pride, your ambitions and all of your prejudice. Trust me, God will honor your prayer if you mean it with your whole heart. I don't know about you, but the mere idea of spending eternity in the presence of a loving God strikes me as the coolest adventure ever. So please join, it's free of charge and you won't be disappointed.

From K-House comes an article concerning King Solomon and what he wrote in the book Ecclesiastes. A must read.

The EU has correctly stated that Israel is at the center of avoiding a problem with the PA. This makes sense. Israel, as much as it hates Hamas, does not want Gaza or big chunks of the West Bank to descend into utter anarchy.

Fox News: Father Jonathan Morris on Islamic theology. This guy gets it.

Why is Turkey moving 250,000 troops to the Iraqi border? The Kurds are proving to be a major thorn in the side of Turkish PM Erdogan.

U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney is asking some very hard questions as it pertains to military action against Iran. This is exactly what they should have been doing in 2003 on the eve of the invasion of Iraq. There are some serious gaps in the logic of attacking Iran. Read it all.

Lastly, I'll make one last contribution on the 20th anniversary of Chernobyl. Here is a photo gallery from the CBC (flash req'd).

I'm tired. Gotta get some sleep.
