The beginning of July marked the first anniversary of CalvaryTraining.org. For better or worse, our most popular topics have been:
Can I feel better about myself for the way you lambasted others for what you thought was their ignorance but was really your failure to get the joke? Probably not. Let’s face it, there is no way to say what I want to say without being just as guilty.
So I’m guilty.
One of today’s “trends” on Facebook was this lovely bit of sarcasm and wit.
The Enjoyment Factor
About Eating, Without Spiritual Implications (for the moment)
This will be one of those concepts that will seem obvious to you after the fact. If you are one of the many who struggle with weight issues and portion control, I want you to take a moment to consider the enjoyment factor in what you eat. To do this, we need to ask ourselves a basic question. Am I enjoying what…
It has now been a year and over 71,000 views. One of my early posts was about the Deep South Youth Conference last year at Calvary Chapel Stone Mountain. I’ve just returned for this year’s conference, and it was a wonderful experience in many ways.
The conference is hosted by Sandy Adams who was very kind and checked in on me a few times. For my part, I realize now I was guilty of wearing the…
It is now being reported that Marian Ibrahim, the woman sentenced to death in Sudan fit her Christian faith, has been freed.
5 Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; 6 not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, 7 with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, 8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.
“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.”
I’m thinking of pets right now. Companion animals. I grew up with lap dogs, and we were never the kind of people to let an animal lick your face. That just seemed gross. When the white poodle would jump in my dad’s lap to be scratched, she naturally wanted to lick his face in gratitude. Dad would throw back his head to avoid the…
Okay. It’s time to pull things around. I’ve just been put to shame.
It wasn’t a bad thing. Actually, it was something very nice said by a high schooler I don’t know.
But I’ve allowed myself to live in defeat the last couple of months, and this very nice thing stands in contrast to this failure. Under the gloom of depression, I finally quit trying to keep up the devotional here.
I let the…
T.S. Eliot once called Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “the Mona Lisa of literature”. This sounds like a compliment until you know Eliot’s opinion of the Mona Lisa.
The Mona Lisa is the world’s most famous painting. Hamlet is considered the greatest stage play of all time.*
For both, T.S. Eliot said that people didn’t consider them works of art because they were interesting; they considered them…
Christiantoday.com recently ran an article stating that Meriam Ibrahim was to be released. Many of us who saw the post on Facebook gladly shared it. Now, it would seem the article is in error.
Ms. Ibrahim still waits. She is appealing her verdict. She will either win or she will be whipped with a 100 lashes and then hanged. The…
