Charles Spurgeon Quote

"Give away a tract whenever you can; better still, give a little book that will not be torn up, one that has a cover on it, for you will probably see it upon the table when you call again. Speak a word for the Master whenever it is possible; and offer a short prayer at every convenient opportunity. I think we should make it a rule, whenever we hear a foul or blasphemous word in the street - (and, alas! we constantly do so) - always to pray for the person who utters it. Perhaps then the devil might find it expedient not to stir up people to swear, if he knew that it excited Christians to pray. Try it, at all events, and see whether it may not have a subtle power to stop the profanity which is so terribly on the increase."

D.L. Moody Quote, "Wake Up Church!"

“People talk about our being earnest and fanatical—about our being on fire. Would to God the church were on fire! This world would soon shake to its foundation. May God wake up a slumbering church! What we want you to do is not to shout ‘amen’ and clap your hands. The deepest and quietest waters very often run swiftest. We want you to go right to work; there will be a chance for you to shout by and by. Go and speak to your neighbor and tell him of Christ and heaven. You need not go far before you will find someone passing down to the darkness of eternal death. Haste to his rescue!”

“If you have thought of this dying thief only as one who put off repentance, I want you now to believe of him as one that did greatly and grandly believe in Christ. And oh, that you would do the same! Oh that you would put a great confidence in my great Lord! Never did a poor sinner trust Christ too much. There was never a case of a guilty one who believed that Jesus could forgive him and afterward found that He could not–who believed that Jesus could save him on the spot and then woke up to find that it was a delusion. No; plunge into this river of confidence in Christ. The waters are waters to swim in, not to drown in. Never did a soul perish that glorified Christ by a living, loving faith in Him. Come, then, with all your sin, whatever it may be, with all your deep depression of spirits, all your agony of conscience. Come and grasp my Lord and Master with both the hands of your faith, and He shall be yours, and you shall be His.”

-C.H. Spurgeon, The Power of the Cross of Christ, 80

Response to "rapidwaters" and Creationism

I recently received a response through the Tumblr on this post responding to the Bill Nye recent comments on Creationism.  I responded below to the user named "rapidwaters".  Pray for the Lord to reach them repentance and faith.

I don’t even know how to properly respond to this idiocy. Taking the words Bill Nye said and twisting the words towards your belief in god is ridiculous. You could have at least been original and proclaimed your statement with your own words. And maybe add a few facts of gods existence … oh wait there isn’t any. It’s sad that people cannot believe in science and themselves enough that they have to continue to believing in a “almighty” fictional character. A fictional character that “loves” everyone… everyone but gays and independent women. A character that would rather have, men specifically, act like slave drivers who keep their women in check and burn other men who are curious about their fellow men’s a— holes.

Hello “rapidwaters”. Thank you for your response! I would have you notice I have not changed your response in anyway, except to sensor the curse words you used.

First, the guys who created this video (whom I am not one of of) were showing the fallacy that you in fact noticed. An appeal to there own authority. This is the same thing Mr. Nye did, he offered no evidence at all against the existence of God as if God needed to be proved.

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. ~Romans 1:18-20

You seem to affirm this by the fact that you speak very hateful toward the God you claim does not exist. You claim He is fictional due to the fact that He, in your own words, hates “gays and independent women”. Which is a strawman I do believe.

Second, Psalm 5:5 says, “The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.“ God hates with a sinless hatred toward sin. Sin is lawlessness, anything done in the opposite of His nature. Like oil and water they cannot mix.

God created the standard by which He will judge the world in righteousness (Acts 17:30-31) We do not create this standard to push any sort of agenda. God sees every act and thought of man, to Him lieing, stealing, blasphemy, lust (which He considers adultry - Matthew 5:28) and hatred is murder (Matthew 5:21-26) are all sin, and rightly deserve punishment. This place of punishment, according to the Bible, is eternity in Hell.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus” - Romans 6:23

But God, in His mercy, came in the person of Jesus Christ, to suffer and die on the Cross 2000 years ago in our place. He bore the wrath of God on Himself in our place, even though Jesus was innocent. ”He who knew no sin, became sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” He then was buried and rose again three days later to defeat sin, death and Hell! Now, anyone who turns to Him in repentance (to turn from, forsake) of there sins and Trust alone in Christ and His work on the Cross (like you would a parachute) will be born again.

”3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

Believe me at one time I too hated God with my actions and ways. But, when you are born again it changes everything. You receive mercy from God, forgiveness of sins, new, eternal life and adoption as Gods Son or Daughter. He will never leave you, nor forsake you. Please, I would love to answer any questions or concerns you have with Christianity. I would love to talk more. Please, think about your eternity and what God did for guilty sinners. I say this too you, out of love for you and care for you.

God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— 26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. ~Romans 3:25-26

The Reward Of His Suffering

Matt Papas new song, "The Reward Of His Suffering" is making a change.

Every dime from this song goes to fund global missions.

He is worthy to receive the reward of HIS SUFFERING!

Happy Sunday!

A Response to Bill Nye "The Science Guy"

Very eloquent response to this video, from Bill Nye "the Science Guy". As someone who loved his videos as a child, I am shocked to hear him come out this strong against Creationism.

Pray the Lord will open His heart.
