NOTES FROM DOGTOWN'S DOG POUND (Or, SAVE US FROM HEAVEN)

.
. 
[DOG POUND NOTES are simply random thoughts, ideas, and maxims that have occurred to me. I am totally convinced of the merit of some of them. Others may merely be food-for-thought or even outright Doggy Doo-Doo. I'll let you guess as to how I categorize each of them.]
.
For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
~ Saint Paul (2 Corinthians 5)

.
Christians love to talk about going to Heaven but, just like atheists, most of them will give every penny they have to doctors to save them from going there.

NOTES FROM DOGTOWN'S DOG POUND (Or, ON FEAR & FAITH)

"...the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me. But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God."
~ Saint Paul (Acts 20)

.
The degree of fear one feels is always precisely proportional to their lack of faith in God.

MILLENNIALS: THE WORST GENERATION (Or, SOMETIMES STUPID CAN BE FIXED)

.
.
There ain't nuttin' wrong with these dumbass Millennials that a John Wayne couldn't fix:

.
Millennials... they just need a real man to pick 'em up by their britches and throw 'em into the cold water of reality. (The wimpy dolts!)
.
FYI: 'Hondo' (1953) is a movie about a real man, Hondo Lane (and his dog, Sam), who travels across the West teaching life lessons to Millennials. Nine out of ten doctors recommend it for their arrogant, knuckleheaded Millennials who don't know doo-doo.

NOTES FROM DOGTOWN'S DOG POUND (Or, WHY I MEDITATE)

.
. 
[DOG POUND NOTES are simply random thoughts, ideas, and maxims that have occurred to me. I am totally convinced of the merit of some of them. Others may merely be food-for-thought or even outright Doggy Doo-Doo. I'll let you guess as to how I categorize each of them.]

I subscribe to Adrian Rogers' 'Love Worth Finding' Daily Devotional Series. Here's an example of why I do:

How to Know the Will of God
.
MAY 29, 2018
.
“… present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:1-2
.
Some people say, “Oh, I’m searching to know the will of God.” Listen, it’s not your job to find the will of God. It’s God’s job to reveal His will to you. It is your job simply to present yourself to Him.
.
And THAT is why I meditate every day!

NOTES FROM DOGTOWN'S DOG POUND (Or, SPREADING THE 2018 GOSPEL)

.

.
I recently found the following advertisement on a page at Biblegateway.com:
.
.
No one should wonder why I usually refer to myself NOT as "a Christian" but as "a Maverick Christian".
.
Just a couple days ago I wrote the following to a friend of mine:
.
I have become a pretty anti-church guy. And I mean all churches. I have long thought the Catholic church was demonically infiltrated and infested. Today, I suspect that this had occurred right from the start. And furthermore, today, I feel that church is not the way most people are going to find God. The time is very, very short now -- 2029, give or take a year or two -- and I don't sense that God is doing most of His work through churches anymore. The Bible clearly tells us that the devil presents himself as an angel of light:
.
...false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
.
I'll be the first to say that I am very far from perfect, but in my opinion, it is sad that Biblegateway.com would associate itself with an ad like that one above. In an article AT Biblegateway, one of their writers wrote:
.
The command do not love the world demands that we reject those ways of life which do not lead us to God or to the practice of truth, justice, righteousness and love. While this sounds easy enough in theory, it is not easy in practice.
.
Yeah, so we see. Can anyone imagine Jesus saying: "Invest like a woman because money is power"? Does anyone think that's an appropriate advertisement for a website that promotes an authentic Christian worldview?

When someone wants a 100-year-old item, it's an "antique".

When no one wants it, it's called "junk".
