“Missing the Canaanites in Plain Sight: The Media Need to Read Their Bibles!”
by: Eric Metaxas & G. Shane Morris.

Excerpt:
“All of this goes to show how biased much of the news media are against Judeo-Christianity. But it also shows that we’re living in a time of startling biblical illiteracy.”

O Christian, never take hold of sin …

“O Christian, never take hold of sin, except with a gauntlet on thy hand; never go to it with the kid-glove of friendship; never talk delicately of it; but always hate it in every shape. If it comes to thee as a little fox, take heed of it, for it will spoil the grapes. Whether it bounds towards thee as a roaring lion, seeking whom it may devour, or makes advances in an attractive form, with graceful mien, seeking by a pretended affection to entice thee into sin–beware; for its hug is death, and its clasp destruction. Sin of every kind thou art to war with–of lip, of hand, of heart. However gilded with profit; however varnished with the seemliness of morality; however complimented by the great, or however popular with the multitude, thou art to hate sin everywhere, in all its disguises, at every time, and in every place. Not one sin is to be spared, but against the whole is to be proclaimed an utter and entire war of extermination.”

– Charles H. Spurgeon.

Millions call themselves by His name …

“Millions call themselves by His name, it is true, and pay some token homage to Him, but a simple test will show how little He is really honored among them. Let the average man be put to the proof on the question of who or what is ABOVE, and his true position will be exposed. Let him be forced into making a choice between God and money, between God and men, between God and personal ambition, God and self, God and human love, and God will take second place every time. Those other things will be exalted above. However the man may protest, the proof is in the choice he makes day after day throughout his life.”

Lyrics of song “Men In Little Houses” by artist/band My Epic. (song at end of post)

LYRICS:
We cannot begin to see the realms beyond periphery
These ghosts and odd anomalies that whisper of reality

But modern man is so adept at skimming past the ocean’s depths
From shoal to shore but still convinced

We can’t feel the spinning underneath
This globe rotates and no one perceives
We’re so small but man always believes
we are the center, measure of all things

If this is where we lie, some place between the matter and the mystified
And only foolish minds would attempt to fit the universe inside

Maybe all our lives are founded in the moments that escape our eyes
And prudent hearts will find that there is beauty in the mysteries of life

We are so small

The only power God recognizes in His Church …

“The only power God recognizes in His Church is the power of His Spirit; whereas the only power actually recognized today by the majority of evangelicals is the power of man. God does His work by the operation of the Spirit, while Christian leaders attempt to do theirs by the power of trained and devoted intellect. Bright personality has taken the place of the divine afflatus.”
