When John the Revelator began to worship an angel he was told twice not to do itbut rather worship God (Rev. 19:10 and 22:9). When the people at Lystra began to worship the apostles after a miracle healing the apostles told them not to do that because they were men of like passions (Acts 14:6-18). What is it that causes people to worship people but not God? In Acts 8:9-24 we read if a sorcerer that bewitched the people and had the people worship him as if he was some great one. Until the apostels came and preached the truth and sent this sorcerer home unemployed. What is it that causes people to worship stars and celebrities? The worship certain politicians as if they were the embodiment of a messiah who brings change and transformation. They listen to what their favorite celebrity rockstar or actress is saying on political, moral, social and spiritual issues as if they were qualified to speak on such issues and deserving of attention and obedience. But will they listen to a God-called, Holy Spirit anointed preacher? And what happens when the most wicked rock singer dies? Why they preach him into heaven for something “spiritual” he or she said years ago. Let’s face it: We live in a time of idolatry where we have become worshipers of people that we regard as stars and celebrities.
It was very moving to watch the funeral mass for Supreme Court Judge Antonin Scalia. This catholic service has held by Father John Scalia, one of nine children of the late Supreme Court Judge. What was it like for a son to hold the funeral for his dad? I appreciate Judge Scalia’s textual, matter-of-fact interpretation of the US Constitution. It is not a living document that can be re-defined and reasoned away. It has to be interpreted as-is. Therefore, Scalia was always a firm defender of liberty, individual rights and the right to life. He was a judge who interpreted law and not one who ruled from the bench according to the whims of political correctness.
Check out this skywriting seen near Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
Skywriter leaves Christian message over Disney World. Isn’t the love of Jesus something wonderful?
That’s not just the name of this gospel song by the Talleys but that’s a good question to all of us since we all can be born again as a result of God’s love revealed in Jesus Christ.
This skywriting was seen from Disney World’s Pop Century Resort in Orlando, Florida.
I was blessed by the good news of Jesus written in the sky by a small aircraft.
Thanks to whoever is flying this plane and uses his talent for the glory of God in such a way.
A great song about the love of God that was proven when Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sin so that we could be forgiven and come to God in a covenant relationship reconciling us with our Creator and Redeemer.
Those huge crosses can be found in Tennessee right beside I-40 in Cookeville, beside I-75 between Lenoir City and Loudon. This cross belongs to the Providence Baptist Church. The other cross is located on top of a hill in Pigeon Forge off of Wears Valley Road.
