I am a theologian of Action:
Rule number one:

"Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it to the glory of God."
1 Corinthians 10:31

I just got done doing a sermon series on the sermon on the mount. I say sermon series, it's really sermons and lessons, if you go to the B.A.S.I.C. website, you can download it in e-sword .TOP format. Useful program if you aren't using it already, BTW.
In the third or fourth lesson, we covered Jesus' command to "Let your light shine before men" Our purpose in doing so brings glory to God.

Motives matter:
Why are you doing what you are doing right now? How will it bring glory to God? Do you bring home a paycheck, throw your brain into spin cycle, and just get a little bread and grape juice on sunday? Do you even believe in Jesus?
Frustrated yet?
Take a minute today, stand up, go to someone at your office, home, school, or down the street, and smile and give them a compliment.
Let that be a snowball.

The Nature of Man.

Very simply put, born innocent, once a sinner, always getting worse.

I've debated how I will defend this position if ever tested on it, but all I can think to do is say "read the Bible" - God always holds us personally responsable for our sins, and that's unfair for Him to do that if we have no choice.
End of story.

Pretty simple, eh?

I'm a theologian of action more so than argument.

Speaking of Action:

Here's the latest news from Afghanistan. Talk about crazy! I'm sorry about catching up to this late, the original story was posted Monday it seems. I heard about it on talk radio last nite on the way home from work. All I can say is, at least we know about it now. Under the Taliban, dude would be dead by now. It's amazing what dark can do when the light is out.

Oh God, Grant me strength in the nite!

Finally able to update prayer list...

Strange days here, blogger wasn't let me do my thing...
Sunday was good. Thirty six people turned out to be helped with what we had, we need shoes and pants something fierce. Now that warmer weather is just around the corner, we'll also need short sleeve stuff. Other things we need:
Bibles! Got to get the word of God into people's hands.
Support, About $2000 a month more would go a loooooonnnnngggg way.

And Prayer, always prayer.
Here are this week's requests:
Thomas Wman : Recovery
Manuel Lopez : Quest in heck (Hey, I write em as I see em)
Red Feather Stands : help with pray to help me overcome my addictions

((*** Let's get a lot of people on Red Feather, I feel lead by God to minister to him especially***))

Mike Nehring: Remember that God needs your love also.
James Crumpton: food
Tyrone Logan: Stop using drugs, get back with family, keep this job I just got.
Aaron Butler : family
Ronald Yapp: Pray that I can work all this week so I can buy things I need
Mark Bertloff : Pray for all the homeless
Connie Boltz : good health ((**Connie told me she had a cold, I also know she recently got out of jail, and they ain't healthy places.**))

This coming sunday we won't be going downtown, my wife and I need to get together, hardly get to see each other sometimes it seems, and her spring break is next week. We're looking at buying a house, found a great place, just need to see if we can get it at a price we can afford.

Keep praying!

****Tomorrow I will post some more theology stuff: The Subject: Man, his Nature.
Tune in next time....

Sunday Prayer...

Pray this sunday that we will bear fruit.
Pray for Ron who is in jail.
Pray for everyone on last week's prayer list.
Pray for our safety.
Pray for our provision.
Pray for the people helping us (youthgroup from Southeast Christian of Orlando) that they will experience something positive for the sake of the Gospel.

Thank you for your prayers, one thing I definately believe is that prayer is effective, one way or another.
