I don’t know who this guy is, but I feel for him. I think any who have spoken publicly and had something come out wrong knows exactly how he feels. Thankfully and by God’s grace I haven’t gaffed this bad – but the day is young!
Just got off the phone with a telemarketer. I love to share the gospel with them and hate that I ever put my home phone on the “do not call” list.
Moments ago a girl named Stephanie called and “congratulated me” for be selected to take part in a survey where I could win prizes, like a car or a watch or something. Which is really a scam to sell me Time Magazine. Anyway.
As always I listened, answered many questions, and then asked if I could ask her some things. I asked her about her background, she stated she was not Catholic but married to one, and because of their differences they didn’t go to church much. But she considered herself a Christian and a good person.
When I asked her about the moral law, she admitted she was a liar, thief and blasphemer but, would still be innocent before God. Although she couldn’t say why. When I asked if she thought she would be innocent before an earthly court – had she only broken a few laws or minor laws, she said, she would be guilty. When I asked Stephanie, why then she thought God would not see her sin… I heard a long pause followed by the dial tone.
Join me in praying for Stephanie. She has a 5 month old child.
She’s only the third person to ever hang up on me. I’ve had 5 examine their lives and relationship with Christ as a result. As an added plus, ever since I started witnessing to them, my telemarketing calls are way down. 😉
We are coming up on Porn Sunday. It’s sounds like a good idea, warning of the dangers and addictive nature of pornography. However the guys at xxxchurch.com are going about it all wrong, IMHO.
I was able to recover the old post from a pre-crash archive. Check it out here and as always, your comments are welcome.

BEIJING — The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson, one of the best-selling non-fiction books in the past ten years, has gutted China’s house church movement, say observers.
“Chinese Christians used to sacrifice everything for Christ. Now they only want God to bless them,” says one Chinese elder who has served five prison terms for planting churches. He and others say China’s Christians have “grown soft with navel-gazing” and have lost their tolerance for persecution.
