Good night's sleep, great Church body, visit the example of the Graceful Sovereign God's sparing of a life and then a,... Nice nap.
I think I missed something,...
Oh yes, the Piedmont "Freethought" Association!
I really missed the people. There is a very good and honest thinker there surrounded by a myriad of very challenged infidels. One who thinks, at least, honestly, and a pile of, well not to adept minds. I enjoyed taking a Christian Worldview and challenging their ability to think and willingness to be challenged. That's one thing that did happen, challenge. One rose to the occasion and answered the challenge, while the remainder were just plain dull of mind and ,. well, simply brash.
So, for you PFA Readers, here is the best thing I have to offer you;
15So, for my part, I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome. 16For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 17For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH."
18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
24Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
To my PFA Friends;
When the search for Truth leads to dead ends (puns intented) read the entirety of the Book of Romans. Beg God for His mercy, repent and be saved from the wrath of God measured out on sinners. I will continue to pray for each of you (even though you ask not to be prayed for) as I recognize that it is the Grace of God which saves sinners, I pray that each of you are found among those who eagerly receives that Life giving Grace.
