Worshipping Religious Liberty: SBC Joins Mosque Building Effort

May 28, 2016

The Southern Baptists support the building of a Mosque? This article, shared by my very discerning sister in Christ Sherryn of The Narrowing Path blog, discusses “American Christianity.” Is it a wonder that we have the choices that we have for president when pastors haven’t been preaching God’s truths for decades? American materialism trumps the Bible in the majority of our churches. And people ask why we have so many problems.

The Narrowing Path

A challenging article from the Pulpit & Pen blog:

Worshipping Religious Liberty: SBC Joins Mosque Building Effort

Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally

Southern Baptists, through their Ethics And Religious Liberty Commission and their International Mission Board, have joined hands with Muslims and others to help build a mosque.

But they have to.  It’s inevitable when you hold closely to the tenets of American Christianity.

The SBC’s ERLC and IMB have joined in with the likes of the Center for Islam and Religious Freedom, the Interfaith Coalition on Mosques, the International Society of Krishna Consciousness, the Sikh Coalition, and other unlikely allies to support building a mosque.  According to The Becket Fund For Religious Liberty (An organization in which Russell Moore is on the Board of Directors) over 20 “interfaith” groups have united to push forward the agenda of the god of religious liberty in support of the mosque.

Spring is here and the butterflies are beginning to flutter signs of creation all over the Northern Hemisphere. The Wings of the Wind and its editor had an interesting week. On the blogging front:

Forced Adoption in the U.K. included this video:

The reason I put up the forced Adoption story was because my new friend Eugene Thinks He is Out of Options – Starting Hunger Strike Soon

https://chrisreimersblog.com/2016/05/16/to-be-an-example-we-must-follow-his-example/ is Rob Barkman discussing the topic. Rob has a very interesting blog entitled, “Settled in Truth Ministries.”

INDIA PROTESTS NORWAY’S CPS includes the following video by Dr. John Dayal:

How to celebrate May 17th, Norway’s National Day is a very interesting article if you follow the blog links.

Divine Sovereignty by Steven J Lawson is another theologically correct article which can be found on Sherryn’s blog, “The Narrowing Path.” It is an easy to read article about a deep subject.

American-College-of-Pediatricians-e1459098066229American College of Pediatricians Slams Transgender Agenda in Children is an article from Dr. Chris Prunean’s Blog “Delight In Truth.” You will certainly not find this interesting article about the transgender subject anywhere in the mainstream media. “Why not?” is the question I have.

Review: Ashamed of the Gospel, by John MacArthur
I’ve been to Jim’s blog several times in the past. From this article, we appear like minded in the most important ways. I may have to try to get my hands on a copy of this now as Dan C. is reading it and, as it appears it may have some information on the “Downgrade controversy” in Spurgeon’s day of which I am not aware, I am curious.

Listen Here buttonSermon Link: The Godhead Revealed by Dr Martyn Llloyd-Jones is a wonderful sermon that I found at Sherryn’s blog. Here is a man who knew how to rightly divide the Word of God.

Marius si Ruth BodnariuGospel Herald – Norway’s Seizure of Five Children due to Parents’ ‘Bible-Based Parenting Style’ Questioned by Over 100 Lawyers and Politicians Worldwide is only part of the story of the wonderful Christian family pictured above.

New DNA Study Confirms Noah is an interesting article by Brian Thomas, M.S. of the Institute for Creation Research.

Steven Bennett – SECRETS and LIES – Inside Barnevernet, Norway’s CPS is an article about the sad reality of Norway’s Child Protective Services.

Smooth Sailing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah annOn Tranquil Seas ~ is Deborah Ann’s poem I chose to publish this week. This was a much needed drink at an oasis along my journey this week. God’s Word is, of course, my primary source of strength, but Deborah Ann’s Words are based on scripture.
This was the favorite verse of a college friend who went on to become a pastor.

On the substitute front, I was fortunate to spend 4 of my 5 days at Fountain Lake. I enjoyed it all, from 2nd grade on up. I got to go on the annual trip to Blakely Dam that the 4th graders have been taking for years. The 5th day I was a spanish teacher at Park Elementary. I welcomed the students with my limited knowledge of Spanish: “Buenos Dias.”

The joke of the week comes from Clayton:

“What do you call a speaker without speak?”

Sermon Link: The Godhead Revealed by Dr Martyn Llloyd-Jones

May 18, 2016

Sherryn knows how to pick them!

The Narrowing Path

Dear friends, this is true biblical, Christ-centered preaching. It is with this kind of holy reverence that we should approach these great truths about God, found in Scripture and revealed in Jesus Christ.

I commend to you the preaching of the the late Dr Lloyd-Jones, from the MLJ Trust archives, part of his sermon series from the book of Isaiah:

The Godhead Revealed

Isaiah 40:5 — What is our view of this message? What is God like? the glory of God beyond the comprehension of man; How can we know God? Jesus declares the ineffable God; in Jesus dwells the Godhead bodily; mankind has never solved its problems; God deals with sin at Calvary.

This sermon is also available on iTunes at the Martyn Lloyd Jones Sermon Podcast.

I pray that God will bless…

WEEKLY WRAP UP FOR 2016-5-14

May 14, 2016

This was an interesting week on the computer in many ways. On the blogging front, lots of interesting material became available this week.

As most of us think our Mom’s are “The Best Mom in the World,” Mother’s Day began with this post. It is one of two pieces I wrote this week.

The Universe Has Been Carefully Dialed to an Astonishingly Precise Value is one of two posts taken from Sherryn’s outstanding discernment blog called: The Narrowing Path.

Melbourne completes coverage of Australian Demonstrations does just that. We head off to another continent next week.

NO DUE PROCESS IN AMERICA? discusses a time in America where some Americans had just that. It was my second shot at writing this week.

Home School Legal Defense Association Publicizes the Bodnariu Case was found at Valeria’s blog this week. The HSLDA, an American organization, put together the best short documentary about the Bodnariu family that I’ve seen.

4 Empty Beds in Norway: 4 of Thousands is a repeat of the HSLDA video because I like it so much.

Bono Meets Eugene Peterson is an well-researched Herescope article on the two giants. Peterson thinks it is OK to add to God’s Word.

Lead me Lord by Gospel Trumpet Singers is a prayer in the form of a beautiful song.

My Friend Ken and CPS Recorded/Vibeke Speaks is an actual recording of Ken Olsen and the mother of his child, Vibeke Morrissey, and their encounter with a CPS worker.

Can a man change a man—short answer-NO, only Jesus can change a man. is another educational word study by Manny Rodriquez, my blogging buddy.

NORWAY…A COUNTRY WHERE EVEN ART IS UPSIDE DOWN!!! is a verbal work of art about a hanging work of art. Ken Olsen is very creative.

Russian Officials Speculate That a Nuclear War Could Leave Romania a “Smoking Ruins” comments on Putin’s Push because of a weak American Foreign Policy.

Why do we want to look like the world? is a question all Christians should ask themselves. Dan C. writes on the subject.

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION is a timely piece about revisionism. Thank you for posting this, Manny. We all need to read all of it.

The Dangerously Influential Gospel of Tim Keller is important information in this era of wolves among the flock. Sherryn has posted information about a false teacher that many know of. Interestingly, Keller wrote the forward to the recent biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

This Light of Mine ~ is a Christian poem by Deborah Ann Belka. No week would be complete without reading something from Deborah Ann.

Some good times were had with the kids this week. Got to help the Special Ed kids at Fountain Lake on Field Day. We got wet, we jumped in the bounce houses, we enjoyed the sunshine.

I took care of this week’s best joke of the day.

So…What do you call a friendly school?

The Universe Has Been Carefully Dialed to an Astonishingly Precise Value

May 9, 2016

I love science and I hope you do, too. It wasn’t one of my favorite subjects growing up and, although Social Studies is still my favorite, Science has become a close second.

I would like to thank my friend Sherryn Forman of “The Narrowing Path” Blog (see my blogroll) for sharing this on Facebook.

2013-2014

December 31, 2013

How many interesting things happened in your life in 2013? For me, 2013 was all about new people whom I met. I’ve met some wonderful people in life and through cyberspace. I would like to share my “big moments” of 2013. This not a chronological list.

There are several people whom I met through blogging who have become friends. Chris (Delight in Truth) and Sherryn (The Narrowing Path) are two people whom I respect and have had fellowship with online. Their blogs are excellent. Dawnmarie decided to stop her Christian themed blog this year and has simplified life with “A Little Bit of Sugar.” I have been Inspired by the “Christian poetry of Deborah Ann,” and the life of Gregory and his blog “Through the Eyes of this Calvinist.” Although I’ve known her since college, “Mrs. Acuna’s Blog” was also added to my blog roll this year. “M’kayla’s korner” is another blog added because of its informative content and m’Kayla’s knowledge of false teachings. I have continued to follow Kassey’s “Ponder Anew.” Although we are no longer working together, we keep in touch here and via Facebook.

It would be wrong to leave out Manny’s blog “Cracked Pot.” He has recently posted lengthy articles about Calvinism and he has been on my blog roll almost since the beginning.

Many interesting people were met through these blogs. Austin, whom I met at Sherryn’s blog, and I have been emailing back and forth. These people come from as close as my own state of Arkansas (Gregory) to a friend in Hong Kong (Lest). Others are from Australia, England, Romania, etc.

It was also nice to get reacquainted with Barbara Anable this year. I have known Barbara, who lives in the same city, for years and somehow we lost connection when I changed the theme of the blog. She has contributed posts in both Wings of the Winds.

The blog hasn’t had as many hits since I went with a more Christian theme. That is just fine with me. The “politically conservative” (whatever that is these days) Wings of the Wind that dealt with local and national politics was successful. I am more concerned these days with spiritual matters and will throw in something that relates to politics when I think it is important. I plan on continuing with Christian material and will continue to try and get up 12 posts a month.

I joined a theological discussion group on Facebook.

I joined a creationist/evolutionist discussion group on Facebook.

I really enjoy the theological group, but the origins group gets quite heated at times. If one goes, it’ll be that one.

I also started playing a strategy game online this year. It started as a joke as my son had the game and I gave it a try with a name taken from my middle name: Lavern. My son had called himself Granticus so I became Lavernicus. I have met people from all over the world through this game. It is a real time historical strategy game and I have made quite a few mostly young friends there. I like the game because it has a good filter for nasty words, there is no blood, and it helps keep my mind active. No word searches for me, thank you. I see it as chess. I am an average player. I don’t spend much time there as I’m a busy guy, but it’s the only game I play and have come to enjoy the company of several players. I want to thank them for understanding that I’m a Christian and for listening to me when asked about my faith. Jews and Muslims also play. There are Christians who play. Servant2Lord has his own YouTube channel and has put up a few of my games. Feudal Lord lives only an hour from me whereas Servant lives in New Zealand. Thanks to Gualtiruzzo (ruzzo), Rob, Vladek, Aleric, Kocha Panda (Panda), kingedawg (king), Friedrich Smith (FS), Iron Price, Quetzalcoatl (Quetz), Schoob57, Marco Polo, Shin, bear, Granticus22 and many others whom I will add as I think of them. Thank you for putting up with my Christian discussions as you were organizing games. I hope we both learned something. I plan on not playing as much in 2014 because I must keep up on the changes in the world that relate to my Christian beliefs.

On the home front, if you are still reading this, there have been changes. I am now teaching in a substitute capacity. My son is in college. My daughter got a job working with kids at a church.

There are some things that don’t change. Like the love of God, my wife of 32 years continues to stay the same. I am a very blessed man in so many ways.

That about sums up my 2013. Please feel free to comment and share things that happened in your life this year.

God’s blessings to all…

Chris Reimers
