Christian Discussions and Chem-Trails

What a title, huh? I just didn't want to post these separately :-).

This morning as we were sending off our daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren, there was a Chem-Trail right over us in the sky. Have you heard of Chem-Trails? They are chemicals being put in the sky to supposedly help with so called global warming  :-). Sadly, too many people still think this is a conspiracy theory. For those that do, I recommend you just put that in a search engine and see what comes up and just start reading. They come from the exhaust of commercial airliners, but they are not the same as "contrails." Contrails dissipate and follow the plane. Chem-trails stick around. They have certain chemicals in them (Aluminum and Barium are two of them if I recall correctly) and they just add to the list of toxins that our bodies absorb and endanger or health. If more people would pay attention and communicate with our elected officials at all levels perhaps we could put a stop to this Lord willing.

Christians discussing church issues and theology has changed over the years. We have let the world's view of "tolerance" and "political correctness" infiltrate the church, let alone emotions and concern about offending one another. Add to this cell phone texting and social media, so we do need to use godly wisdom. We are to communicate with one another in a Christ-like manner. We should be careful as not to say things in text, email, or social media that we would not face to face or in church. The flip-side to that is that we be careful not to try to read emotions and motives into text as well. Our Lord Jesus Christ was meek in His earthly ministry but not a wimp. We are not Jesus of course, but think of what some others in Scripture said as well. Yes, we speak the truth in love, but that does not mean we are to avoid speaking the truth. We are to earnestly contend for the Faith, and we have to deal with issues within our local churches. Let's get some backbones brothers and sisters, but indeed Christ-like backbones :-). Love y'all!

"What Pastors Wish Deacons Knew" By Derek Gentle

This article was referred to me by a brother in Christ, and is no reflection whatsoever of Grace Fellowship and our Deacons. As a matter of fact, most of it doesn't apply, and this type of thing is often the result of giving Deacons in baptist and other churches more authority in the church than the bible gives. This is for the general benefit of those who read, and for the glory of God


What Pastors Wish Deacons Knew

by Derek Gentle

I appreciate you more than you know
There is not a greater blessing in a pastor's life than a godly deacon who loves the Lord and loves the Word of God. I feel that I couldn't have a more wonderful relationship with them. I wish every pastor were so blessed. Just looking out in the service and seeing you there is an encouragement. Knowing you are praying for me motivates me. Knowing you share the vision of a growing, evangelistic church and impacting our community challenges me to my best efforts! God bless you godly deacon. You are appreciated!

"Charles Spurgeon Slams John R Rice" From James Spurgron's Site

Charles Spurgeon Slams John R. Rice

I was handed a book a while back written by John R. Rice. Rice was a fundamentalist icon who went to be with the Lord in 1979 or 1980. I became familiar with Rice growing up and knew him as the founding editor of The Sword of the Lord - a fundamentalist periodical which had a lot more influence in Rice's day than it has ever had since. Rice was a zealous evangelist and an innovator in salesmanship personal evangelism. What I mean by 'salesmanship' personal evangelism is the idea that personal evangelism should be approached the way a salesman approaches individuals with whom he is trying to make a sale. I was reared on this type of soul winning.

Besides the fact that I believe this form of 'soul winning' involves a dumbing down and subtle changing of the gospel message and is ultimately destructive to the Church and to individuals, I never had any problem with John Rice or his focus - that of reaching as many souls as possible for …
