TAMING THE TONGUE: It is beautiful (and scary!) to see in action just how much power words can have. – I was in an on-line chat where a young woman was sharing her confused feelings about her son.

He had been conceived while she was living with her then-boyfriend. They had become Christians and married, but she said she was having a hard time confessing her long-time sin of premarital sex, became it had given her their beautiful son.

I wrote, “You don’t have your son because of your sin. You have him in spite of your sin.”

She was just SO relieved and uplifted to understand this thing that merely took substituting “in spite of” for “because.”

The scary part, of course, is that if we can do so much good with a few words, imagine how much damage we do when we speak thoughtlessly or out of malice.

Bible on aliens

Personally, I have never cared whether or not God created aliens. He’s sovereign. But the science of interstellar travel has seemed to me to be far more problematic than the theology of demonic influences. Until today, I have never explored the issue further than to think, “Hmph, they’re probably demons.”

The site where I found the video above – Alien Resistance dot com – is all about that subject. I’ve spent all afternoon looking at it. It’s really interesting stuff.

The site presents details about how alleged “aliens” change, “correct”, or denounce the Bible. It also presents numerous accounts of “alien abductions” that ceased when the name and authority of Jesus Christ was invoked. Continue reading

Before we call, He has answered

before they call

This is a testimony written by a doctor who worked in Africa.

One night I had worked hard to help a mother in the labor ward; but in spite of all we could do, she died, leaving us with a tiny, premature baby and a crying two-year-old daughter. We would have difficulty keeping the baby alive; as we had no incubator (we had no electricity to run an incubator). We also had no special feeding facilities.

Although we lived on the equator, nights were often chilly with treacherous drafts. One student midwife went for the box we had for such babies and the cotton wool that the baby would be wrapped in.

Another went to stoke up the fire and fill a hot water bottle. She came back shortly in distress to tell me that in filling the bottle, it had burst (rubber perishes easily in tropical climates). “And it is our last hot water bottle!” she exclaimed. As in the West, it is no good crying over spilled milk, so in Central Africa it might be considered no good crying over burst water bottles. They do not grow on trees, and there are no drugstores down forest pathways. Continue reading

GOD SPEAKS PERSONALLY: From Mama Buzz – This came on the radio shortly after trying to help Buzz with a meltdown: “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you.” – Isaiah 41:10

Nation’s Raging Dumpster Fires Ask People to Stop Comparing Them to American Politics

From The Babylon Bee.

U.S.—The raging dumpster fires of the nation held a press conference Monday at which they politely asked people to stop comparing them to American politics.

“We are being unfairly maligned here,” said one garbage dumpster with huge flames bursting from its lid. “We dumpsters don’t try to mess with your lives or anything.”

The dumpster fires then produced a chart showing that while politicians have lots of bad qualities, dumpster fires possess none of these dangerous and deadly characteristics:
