Kurt Warner

This Sunday we’ll have a brief video detailing some of Kurt Warner’s views on winning, witnessing, and faith.  I find it interesting that when Kurt tries to share his faith in the mainstream media it usually gets edited out, even on (or especially on) programs like Oprah!  Here is a brief story about him on Baptist Press.

News

Sorry for the delay in posting.  I’m working through a couple of books and I want to post comments about them soon.  One is entitled “The Cross of Jesus” by Leon Morris.  This Sunday we’re going to look at the victory the  sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross brings, and my reading this week is focusing on that.

Until then, here is a great link that shares daily Christian headlines under various topics.  I’ve found it useful because it helps me to stay informed.

Abortion

Please keep praying for the president.  I’m very concerned about his initial choices regarding social issues.  Here is one of the best commentaries I’ve seen regarding abortion in awhile, and really brings home the potential of all human beings.  It’s only 50 seconds long, so please take the time to view this powerful spot.  Thanks to Dave Morrow for sending me the link!

New Sermon Video

The first “normal” sermon video has been added to the website in three parts (part one, part two, part three).  The sermon is on Matthew 6:25-34, is entitled “A Prescription for Worry,” and was preached on 1/18/09.

Sanctity of Human Life

It’s sanctity of human life week.  I would encourage everyone to take some time out to pray for our new president with the hope that he will make good decisions regarding life issues.  Life is a gift from God, and we shouldn’t do anything to take it.  There are two good articles that I want to draw your attention to.  The first is by a doctor that speaks out against physician assisted suicide in a newspaper article.  The second details some of the advances that prove embryonic stem cell research is the wrong way to go practically, as well as morally.

Gospel and Kingdom

I’m working through a trilogy of books by Graeme Goldsworthy.  The first is “Gospel and Kingdom” and deals with theology in the Old Testament.  Goldsworthy believes that the kingdom of God is a key to understanding theology.  He sees the kingdom pattern established in the Garden of Eden, with God’s people (Adam & Eve), in God’s place (Garden), under God’s rule.  Unfortunately, the fall interrupted the kindgom, but the kingdom continues to be promised (Abraham), foreshadowed (David & Solomon), revealed (Jesus Christ), and one day will be consumated (return of Christ).  So far it’s enjoyable reading.  I have one or two questions which I’ll save for later.  It may be that futher reading will clear them up!
