What is a Christian?

I had a most interesting conversation yesterday with a friend around this question: “what is a Christian?”
We were discussing the phrase “practising Christian”, she accepts that she isn’t one of those but she does understand herself to be a Christian. The phrase ‘practising Christian’ is generally taken to mean “church goer” but being a “church goer” is no guarantee of living out Christian values such as generosity, forgiveness, compassion or thankfulness.

Send forth your Spirit, O Lord, and renew the face of the earth (Psalm 103)

R.) Send forth your Spirit, O Lord, and renew the face of the earth.

Bless the Lord, my soul! Lord God, how great you are. How many are your works, O Lord! The earth  is full of your riches. (R.)

You take back your spirit, they die, returning to the dust from which they came. You send forth your spirit, they are created; and you renew the face of the earth. (R.)

May the glory of the Lord last for ever! May the Lord rejoice in his works! May my thoughts be pleasing to him. I find my joy in the Lord. (R.)

A God Given Reprieve

We had known hardship. At first it came in the form of a picket line. I’d take coffee in the middle of the night to my husband and his fellow United Steel Workers. In front of the Goodyear plant, they held their signs and walked. There had been rumors of the plant closing for a long time. We were just waiting on the company to decide if they were going to close our plant or the Gadsen, Alabama plant. It was cheaper to build some production lines of tires outside the USA. It was part of the mass exodus of jobs leaving our country. The strike ended much sooner than we predicted.

Australian Paedophile's Are Importing What?!

 

A horrific trend is on the rise in Australia, child – like sex dolls are being imported, replicating promiscuously dressed children who look as young as 5. Customers who purchase these anatomically correct dolls (a doll with some of the primary and secondary sex characteristics of a human) from the Japanese company Trottia, are proclaimed paedophiles who claim the use of these dolls are a way to satisfy their paedophilic tendencies (Despite absolutely no evidence by experts suggesting this to be the case). Sick bastards.

Send forth your Spirit, O Lord, and renew the face of the earth (Psalm 103)

R.) Send forth your Spirit, O Lord, and renew the face of the earth.

Bless the Lord, my soul! Lord God, how great you are, clothed in majesty and glory, wrapped in light as in a robe! (R.)

How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your riches. Bless the Lord, my soul. (R.)

All of these look to you to give them their food in due season. You give it, they gather it up: you open your hand, they have their fill. (R.)

May 27 & 28, 2017/Fools

When I wrote that I believed that the enemy was working to attack my writing the other day, I was immediately confronted by someone who contradicted me. That didn’t bother me so much as this individual’s comment that lauded our earthly enemy who fights against God (note, I refuse to name this entity today!) in no uncertain terms.

I wasn’t so much shocked, as sad. I consoled myself that perhaps this person had stumbled upon my site by what they would consider an ‘accident’ but what I would consider God’s leading.
