    May 24, 2017 Wednesday of the Sixth Week of Easter Reading 1 Acts 17:15, 22—18:1After Paul's escorts had taken him to Athens,they came away with instructions for Silas and Timothyto join him as soon as possible. Then Paul stood up at the Areopagus and said:"You Athenians, I see that in every respectyou are very religious.For as I walked around looking carefully at your shrines,I even discovered an altar inscribed, 'To an Unknown God.'What therefore you unknowingly worship, I proclaim to you.The God who made the world and all that is in it,the Lord of heaven and earth,does not dwell...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Isaiah Isaiah 32 The Kingdom of Righteousness 32 See, a king will reign in righteousness     and rulers will rule with justice. 2 Each one will be like a shelter from the wind     and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert     and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. 3 Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed,     and the ears of those who hear will listen. 4 The fearful heart will know and understand,     and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear. 5 No longer...
  • Understanding the Basic Conflict (Protestant/Evangelical Caucus & Devotional)

    The story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde could be an allegory for the Christian life. There is a war in our members, a constant conflict between the old and the new, between vice and virtue, sin and obedience. We seem to be moral schizoids. It is a struggle between what the Bible calls the “old man” and the “new man.” Whenever I hear an evangelist declare, “Come to Jesus and all your problems will be over,” I cringe because I am hearing false advertising. I cringe because this promise conflicts with my experience and my spiritual pilgrimage. In one...

About midnight, while Paul and Silas were prayingand singing hymns to God as the prisoners listened,there was suddenly such a severe earthquakethat the foundations of the jail shook;all the...

    Freepmail ^ | 05-22-17 | Farmer Dean email to another Freeper
    I am copying a Freepmail I got from another person for Farmer Dean. Farmer Dean, an all around good and likable guy, is starting chemo and more radiation for colon cancer today. I asked him if he wanted us to pray for him and he was very thankful and said yes. It is beautiful when Christians realize that prayers from other Christians, regardless of denomination, is a powerful thing. My mom’s been going to Mass for him and he has been so very grateful. Just a good guy whom I pray beats this through and through.

    Evangelical Christians love America. Some see in her the last hope of creating a Christian nation. But it is not a Christian nation. It is pagan to the core. It is in danger of becoming, if it is not already, the new “Evil Empire.” The Mayflower Compact is a museum piece, a relic of a forgotten era. “In God We Trust” is now a lie. Yes, we must always work for social reform. Yes, we must be “profane” in Martin Luther’s sense of going out of the temple and into the world. We do not despise the country of our...
  • Embracing Our Mission (Protestant/Evangelical Caucus & Devotional))

    05/12/2017 7:08:55 AM PDT · by Gamecock · 1 replies
    A church that cares not for truth is a community that rejects its very mission. The person who says, “I’m not interested in doctrine or theology,” is not “of the truth.” He or she has missed the voice of Jesus. For the church to be the church, she must bow before her King and embrace the mission He has given to her. Yes, we desire a cultural reformation and a restoration of public morality. But that is secondary to and dependent on our mission to bear witness to the truth. Doctrine is important because its central concern is for an...

    “Immediately [Jesus] made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray.” - Mark 6:45–46 We are accustomed to understanding the shepherding language in Scripture in warm, pastoral terms of comfort. Certainly, that is appropriate, since the Bible often uses shepherding imagery in such a way (for example, Ps. 23). However, the language of shepherd and sheep also appears in reference to military leaders. It is applied to Assyrian generals in Nahum...
  • Tabernacling with God (Protestant/evangelical Caucus and Devotional)

    It was the exodus of the Old Testament that earned the ancient Israelites the description of “pilgrims and sojourners.” They were a semi-nomadic people who lived the life of what Harvey Cox once likened to a floating craps game. They moved from place to place. Even their church was a tent that had to be pitched and taken down repeatedly as they followed the lead of God in the wilderness. This image figures prominently in the New Testament portrayal of the Incarnation. In John’s Gospel, it is written that the Logos, the divine Word, was “with God” and “was God”...
