Pursuit of Purity: Trip Lee and the Mowry's

Image
January last year I told the good news from Rebecca St. James, Tia and Tamera Mowry. Now I have more good news to share!! I choose to share good news from the men and women in popularity who have chosen to attempt to live a godly life. lol I try to find people who will encourage believers in their pursuit of purity.


Christian rap artist, Trip Lee of Reach Records with his wife, Jessica are having a baby!! YAY!!




Trip Lee revealed in his song "Good Thing" that he and his wife is expecting a little one after much prayer.




Trip Lee and his wife married at age 21 and 22. After being asked so many times why they married so young they wrote their answers out for everyone to see.

Trip's Perspective

Yesterday I made a late night stop at the store to grab a few things and I had a very interesting conversation with the cashier. We made small talk as she scanned my items, and then she offered me a discount card but I told her my wife already had one. That’s when the conversation got f…

Why the Wicked Prosper (Revisited)

Image
It's not been long since I wrote on this topic but I remembered some other verses that would go well in explaining this subject further.


Do Not Love the World
15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17

This World Is Satan's.

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”
10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’” Matthew 4:8-10

The World Hates the Disciples


18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If yo…

Reblogged: "Creed" by Steve Turner

blogged from Thistledowne

Ravi Zacharias asks, "Who are we? What is our creed?

Creed

We believe in Marxfreudanddarwin.
We believe everything is OK
as long as you don't hurt anyone,
to the best of your definition of hurt,
and to the best of your definition of knowledge.

We believe in sex before, during,
and after marriage.
We believe in the therapy of sin.
We believe that adultery is fun.
We believe that sodomy is OK
We believe that taboos are taboo.

We believe that everything's getting better
despite evidence to the contrary.
The evidence must be investigated, and
you can prove anything with evidence.

We believe there's something in horoscopes,
UFO's and bent spoons;
Jesus was a good man just like Buddha,
Mohammed, and ourselves.
He was a good moral teacher although we think
some his good morals were bad.

We believe that all religions are basically the same;
at least the one that we read were.
They all believe in love and goodness.
They only differ on matters of c…

See You Later Chuck Colson!

Image
I spoke about this topic recently. In that entry I came from the point of view of an unbeliever dying and going to Hell. This time I'm coming from the very opposite view.

 I was thinking about saying R.I.P. to Charles (aka Chuck) Wendell Colson, a man who was Christian when he passed, but something still seemed wrong. Yea I'd like to wish him peace especially if he suffered a lot here on Earth but I know for certain that he's enjoying more than peace. He's in joyous bliss worshipping the Lord and being able to see Him in person. He's not concerned about my peace wishing either.


Chuck Colson led a life I believe we should all remember still. In the news I'm sure you probably heard about Mr. Colson's past as a man sent to prison for his involvement in the Watergate scandal. Yes, it's true Mr. Colson was sent to prison but before he went he became a Christian and noting the treatment of prisoners, once inside, decided to do something about it.  Based on hi…

Love It Or Leave It: Music Review 2

Image
I know a lot of people would see this brother on the streets and think he's up to no good but knowing Reconcile he'd probably be on the corner sharing the Gospel to strangers. lol



Ronnie "Reconcile" Lillard is his name. What came to mind after the 20th time I listened to this song was "those who are forgiven much love much". Read the passage below to understand the entire context and meaning of that phrase.

Luke 7:36-50
Jesus Anointed by a Sinful Woman

36 Now one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, so he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. 37 When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume, 38 and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.
39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to him…

Why Do the Wicked Prosper?

To my Christian followers who like me at times wonder why does it seem that the unbelievers have an easier life. We're not the only ones who've come upon this question Jeremiah and Asaph also asked God about this topic in the bible. So let's look at the answers that God gave and showed these men.


Jeremiah 12

Jeremiah’s Complaint

1 You are always righteous, O LORD,
when I bring a case before you.
Yet I would speak with you about your justice:
Why does the way of the wicked prosper?
Why do all the faithless live at ease?
2 You have planted them, and they have taken root;
they grow and bear fruit.
You are always on their lips
but far from their hearts.
3 Yet you know me, O LORD;
you see me and test my thoughts about you.
Drag them off like sheep to be butchered!
Set them apart for the day of slaughter!
4 How long will the land lie parched
and the grass in every field be withered?
Because those who live in it are wicked,
the animals and birds have perished.
Moreover, t…

Media Malpractice: Yiayia on Relationships

Athenos Greek commercial
A Greek Grandma tells kids who are shacking up that they're going to Hell.



Will just living with the opposite sex cause you to go to Hell? No

Will sleeping with your significant other whether you're living together or not cause you to go to Hell? No

Now I'm not condoning people who sleep together and are not married. I'm just saying you're not going to Hell just because of that. Sleeping with someone outside of marriage is a sin which will send you to Hell for being a sin that hasn't been atoned for. You can go to Hell just because you disobeyed your parents or something little you did a long time ago. A small lie you told when were little like "Yea I washed my hands" when you didn't is enough to bar you from Heaven.

You have to be absolutely perfect to get to heaven or accept Christ as your Saviour, acknowledge Him as God and repent of your sins. God saw that we were all going to Hell because none of us are perfect and de…

180 Day of April

Here's what this day is all about...



Media Malpractice: The Trayvon Martin Case

This is my first Media Malpractice entry this year. For links to my other entries check the end of this entry.

I tried my best to stay out of this Trayvon Martin mess but but it seems as though a lot of my fellow African Americans are not looking at facts and just working on emotion. So I can't stay quiet any longer lest the people especially African Americans who want truth and justice in this country think they're alone.

It sickens me to see all this hate going on but what's worse is the Media getting in on this. They don't care about the citizens of America, if they did they'd leave this case up to the justice system and they wouldn't doctor tapes to push an agenda. Their agenda: to stir up racial tension which would get the people's focus off a declining economy and keeping a black president who's spending us into oblivion. I have nothing against us having a president with an African American heritage in him/her or any other heritage for that matter…

Sexual Immorality

"12'Everything is permissible for me'—but not everything is beneficial. 'Everything is permissible for me'—but I will not be mastered by anything.13 'Food for the stomach and the stomach for food'—but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, 'The two will become one flesh.' 17 But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.

18Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.19Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in yo…

How do you know that Christianity is the one true worldview?

His accent and the other guy's are a little hard but if you listen carefully you'll be able to understand them. Today's post is from Dr. Ravi Zacharias, a man with many titles behind his name but is mostly known for his apologetic teaching. For those who don't know apologetic in this meaning is not about being sorry but defense.
