Hello, just thought I would give you all some brain food to chew on for a bit.
Jadens surgury went well as you probably have read. That is good. Erin wanted me to go back in the Pre OP with him. Definitly one of the hardest things I've ever done. There is a country song lyric that goes like this ," Tough little boys grow up to be men, but they turn into big babies instead". I definitly kept my composure but man it's difficult entrusting a stranger with your child's life.
Read an old newsweek the other day where it was all about the different religions. Interesting stuff. There was one common theme throughout the whole thing. It was the fact that everyone is right, just have different interpertations, thus everyone can be saved by following whatever they see fit. A lot of the beliefs just talked about how man can earn his own salvation. Also talked about how "extreme" christians shouldn't "critique" these religions because it makes us narrow-minded. Even Christian religions mentioned man having a huge part in his own salvation. You see I beleive that by Christ's blood I am saved. Nothing else. If you start saying that you have a big part of your salvation aside from accepting Christ as lord and savior you really start to degrade and downsize the meaning of the Cross. And that meaning is the only by Christ's blood are we saved. By seeking Christ's forgiveness and accepting him has Lord can we be saved.
2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
2 peter 3:3
Know this first of all, that in the last days scoffers will come living according to their own desires
Very very deep meaningful verses. Many people will refuse the truth. We can only pray for those people. We will be persecuted. We will be outnumbered. But God is so much bigger. (reminds me of a veggie tale song "God is bigger then the Boogie man" yes i am a geek i know)
I pray for anyone who reads this blog and hasn't accepted Christ as Lord and Savior. I love you all. Hope everyone is doing well. In Christ-- Robert
