Design of the Week – Boog’s Corner – Who’s Side?

This week’s design is another one that my daughter came up with. It is a simple question but one that many people don’t seem to be able to answer honestly. The Bible says in Matthew 12:30 that you are either for God or against Him. If you do not obey Him then it doesn’t matter what you call yourself or how much you pretend, you are not His. If you are not His, then you belong to the devil. It’s that simple.

This may seem harsh, but it’s the truth. A lot of people talk the talk, but John says that it’s more than talk and it’s more than one day. It’s a lifetime. If you’re not giving your all to God on a daily basis, you may want to check and see if you are saved. Does this mean that you don’t sin. Nope. Does it mean that you’re always going to be up and energetic. Nope. What it means is that when you do sin, you immediately go to your Advocate, Jesus, and confess that sin. Then, you get back to doing what you should be doing. You don’t live in your sin, you don’t wallow in self-pity, and you don’t pout.

Sadly, many Christians today are all about feelings. It’s not about feelings at all. Being a Christian is about knowing and that comes from abiding in Him.

In modern times, it has become commonplace for people to say that all roads lead to heaven and that all religions are pretty much the same. Many say that it doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you believe something. If you believe something and you live by that belief, then you will find yourself in heaven. This means that a good Buddhist, a faithful Hindu, a pious Muslim, and even a staunch atheist will be accepted into heaven (according to 65% of “Christians”).

The question is, is this true? Continue Reading Blog – Arm Yourself – All religions lead to heaven…

Design of the Week – Crossover – Future Soccer Mom

Ok….Being a soccer coach with a daughter who absolutely loves soccer, I couldn’t pass this one up. This design is a simple design for all of those moms-to-be who know that they will soon be driving a mini-van and hauling their little ones to the pitch.

The design itself is crisp and well done. It is something that would be great for a gift. It also got me to thinking about something else. I don’t know if this is what the designer had intended, but in this age of “choice” and convenience, The fact that the shirt says “Future …Mom” is enough for me. Tossing soccer into the mix is just icing…

If you know of a soccer mom-to-be, this would be a great gift idea. If you don’t, I would still encourage you to go to Skeetz Teez and check out the other designs there. Surely you could find something there (and don’t call me Shirley…)!

Back in the early church (even to the 1800’s), there was one foundation for every doctrine and action – the Bible. I guess that I should clarify what I consider the church. It is the body of believers – those people who have repented of their sins and put their trust in Christ by faith alone.
 
In the modern church, especially in America, it seems that the foundation of every doctrine and action is anything but the Bible. There are thousands of churches who use “church growth models” like those put out by Willow Creek and Saddleback.

Design of the Week – Under Par

I really don’t know how the weather has been where you live, but here in the Southern U.S., it’s been HOT. It’s also been pretty clear. If you are a golfer, then this is the perfect weather to go out and play a few rounds. When most people play golf, they try to get the lowest score they can (notice I said most…when I go out to play it’s to give other people comic relief!). To do this, they have to shoot under par.

If you have no idea what this means I’ll explain a little. Par is basically the number of strokes the golf course thinks it should take for you to start from the tee and get it into the hole. If you get it in more shots, that’s over par and if you get make it in fewer shots, that’s under par. Obviously, if you’re going for the lowest score, you want to get from the tee to the hole in the fewest shots possible. Continue Reading Design of the Week – Under Par…

Claiming honor in the presence of the king

Many Christians today talk about the freedom, power, and authority they have. They talk about being bold and aggressive in their prayers. They demand things from God as they pray and command everything to obey them from the human body to the weather to demons and evil spirits.

Not only that, they talk about how they’re “anointed”, “called”, or “gifted” for the “ministry” they are doing. They use this prestige and “anointing” to lead people “into the throne room of God”, “storming the gates of heaven” to get their “vision” accomplished. They shout, yell, whoop, holler, and get red-faced when they preach or pray. Many of them strive to pack “megachurches” with thousands of seats. They preach whatever is necessary to keep people there and love to be looked on as leaders. They are happy to be sought out for advice and always have an opinion to give. They maneuver themselves into places of “power” and gain greater degrees of fame as their notoriety grows. But is this biblical? Is it right?
