Thought Number 275... A Chair Analogy

This analogy came to me from the late D James Kennedy by way of RC
Sproul in a recent podcast:

Consider a sturdy wooden chair on the floor in front of you.

Now. Do you believe it is a chair? Good, you do well.

Do you believe it is capable of supporting your weight? Excellent.
You are on the right track.

Now ask yourself: Is the chair supporting your weight? No? Why not?
It is because you are not sitting in the chair.

In the same way, it is one thing to acknowledge that God exists. It is
another thing to affirm that Jesus is God and is able to save you. But
these affirmations do not save you. You are only saved when you have
cast yourself upon Christ and his work, giving your life over to him
for your entire support.

You are not saved until you are in Christ.

God is God... Get used to it.

Thought Number 274... Obama Accidentally Adheres to Biblical Truth.

President Obama officially proclaimed June to be Lesbian, Gay,
Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.

Considering that pride is at the root of all sin, I guess I can live
with that...

(But of course, attendant to the president's agenda is the abolishment
of all "hate speech" toward the featured "community". So, get ready
for the Bible burnings and Sunday morning gag orders.)

God is God... Get used to it.

Thought Number 273... I know what you're thinking, so I'll go ahead and say it.

yes, God sovereignly struck down George Tiller, the abortion doctor from Kansas.  And God ordained Scott Roeder to take him out.

There. It's said.

You want proof?  If God didn't want him dead, he would still be here.  And if God hadn't ordained it meet for Scott Roeder to kill him, he wouldn't have done so.

But I'll say this too:  Just as Jesus declared of Judas Iscariot, so it is with Scott Roeder.  

"The Son of Man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born."

It was time to remove the abortionist from the planet, even if he did happen to be "doing church" that day.  But woe to that man who commits that murder with the hatred of his fellow man in his heart. 

Pray that both George Tiller and Scott Roeder might be saved by grace through faith in Christ, despite their works.
God is God... Get used to it.
