I was greatly convicted by this sermon of Paul Washer’s. It motivated me to change things in my life that are “trifle” and a waste of time.
It has some strong words for men and Christians.
May God bless and challenge,
My family doesn’t have kind words for dating. I’ve been brought up to view it as both pointless and dangerous. And when I went through a time of questioning that fact, Dad brought to light the example of Jacob: a man who was very diligent in marrying the right woman.
Although I now see eye-to-eye with my Dad concerning dating, I don’t think Jacob was all He was said to be.
I was reading over His account a week-or-so ago and I realized just how ridiculous His life actions were.
Let us go through a list:
Black and white. That is how the law starts out when it is written on our hearts (Romans 2:15.)
But God gave us a clever mind. A mind that is capable of reasoning away anything we wish to. We can convince ourselves that theft is okay, if you take only a little. Or that lying doesn’t matter, so long as nobody gets hurt.
Abortion is no exception to this list of exceptions.
I don’t care who you are. You could be the great grandchild of Adolf Hitler, but if you saw a small child about to be murdered, you would do everything you could to prevent it from happening.
Unless, of course, that child is in the womb.
Our culture has argued itself stupid with abortion, when in its simplest forms, we are killing babies.
They reason that they are not living, yet they feel pain.
They say that they are just extension of the mothers body, no more than a zit, yet it can have a completely different blood type.
I could go on with a list of reasons why I think abortion is wrong. But I’m going to let God do the talking.

Here is a photo I use while on christian forums and Tangle:
My family got me a t-shirt with the logo and a phrase: “Friends don’t let friends go to Hell.”
My brother saw the t-shirt and drew me a picture:
I just wanted to share that with you.
We have a lot of soldiers in Iraq right now. I have a bud who just got out a few months ago. It can take a huge toll on them to be away from friends and family, not to mention the hardships they face.
Keep them in your prayers. Write them, send them Chocolate (worth its weight in gold over there), or anything. Just let them know they’re not forgotten.
