Are You A Christian?

LaShawn Barber posts on "What It Means To Be A Christian." She prefaces her points with, "Being a Christian means you have embraced what the Bible says about God, mankind, and salvation."

Embracing truth means embracing ideas and standards often in conflict with societal phases, fads and trends. It's countercultural. Wanna be a revolutionary? Follow Jesus. Following anyone or anything else just gets you damned. (If that last word bothers you, it should. If it really, really bothers you, very good. If you don't believe there is such a thing as "eternal damnation," then you definitely need to read LaShawn's piece. Twice.)

Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved."

Let eyes be opened, Lord. Let every ear hear.

I'm sure you've lost power. I hope you're safe and that the floodwaters don't affect you. Maybe you and your dh decided to leave after all. I hope, I hope.

Lord, I pray your hedge of protection around Mir and her husband and their home. Be with them wherever they are.
Amen and amen.
