Morning Devotions 7.30.15

Beginning today, I am going to start recording a daily devotion every morning as the Lord provides the time. This one went a little long, but I am hoping to keep them to about 15 minutes. I pray that you are blessed by them. Of course, they are just as much for me as for anyone else who cares to come along.

Christianity is Being Rescued

“The shaking of American culture is no sign that God has given up on American Christianity. In fact, it may be a sign that God is rescuing American Christianity from itself.”

Sunday Message

I taught at the Calvary Chapel of Greenville last Sunday. It's an awesome fellowship in the small town of Travelers Rest, South Carolina. My text was from the book of Jude. Click HERE to listen.

Gun Laws Will Not Fix the Problem

With 54 people shot in Chicago over the 4th of July weekend, Michael Reagan wrote:

"The only solution liberals have for ending gun violence in the cities is to take away everybody’s guns. But Chicago already has some of the country’s toughest gun laws. They obviously don’t bother the local drug lords. No one ever wants to address the underlying cause of the violence in our inner cities. It’s not the presence of guns. It’s the absence of fathers in the homes of the gang-bangers who are using guns to shoot each other. The numbers are depressing and well known. Nearly 2 in 3 black children grow up in homes without a father present. One in three Latino kids do.We can thank the liberals and their 1960s welfare programs for many of these broken families.
It was their “War on Poverty” that gave unmarried mothers financial independence, made fathers superfluous and undermined the formation of two-parent families. Fathers were let off the hook for their baby making and disappeared from family life. Mothers and grandmothers raised the children. And when the fatherless boys grew up they did what children born into broken families often do. They went out and found their own substitute families on the streets. We call them gangs."

Citizens Don’t Know What Country We Seceded From In 1776

This is pretty discouraging coming from a country that spends more than any other on education and is yet still ranked 26th in the world.

Sums it Up Pretty Well

If we start removing everything that is offensive to individuals or select groups in our culture, nothing will be left.



God Bless America, really?

I must confess that as I watched the fireworks going off over Liberty University tonight, that I had a knot in my stomach that reminded me that our country is going the wrong way. Not so sure that we can honestly call down our Lord's blessing by uttering the words "God bless America" anymore. Sad day for me personally.

Stanley Trashes Expository Teaching

I like John MacArthur's response, "There’s a serious defect in a so-called minister content to be proud of assembling non-believers and calling them a church. Something deeply wrong there. Modern evangelicalism seems to exhaust every imaginable and unimaginable means to attract and collect non-Christians into a building and then call it a church and call it church growth. Maybe there’s a better way to identify these places, let’s just call them non-churches."
