This 'n' That

Photo: WikiMedia
As you probably have noticed, I've been a bit preoccupied this week. Hopefully it won't be too much longer before things are back to normal. Or, at least what passes for normal around here.

I trust that in my absence everyone has been diligently monitoring the ongoing silliness of the visible church, as well as the continuous downward spiral of the culture.

Since I've not had time this week to compile my usual list of the weird, wacky and woeful, I have an abbreviated This 'n' That for you. Take the extra time to wash your car, read a book, catch up on Dr. Phil or bake me a peach pie. Just remember that we are called to do all things as unto the Lord, bringing glory to Him, which means that Dr. Phil reruns may have to be crossed off the list. I did receive a word that baking a peach pie for your favorite blogger is one of the most anointed activities in which one can engage. Do with that information what you will.

With that, please enjoy your abbreviated week in review (kind of):
  • Ken Silva provides some helpful background on prosperity preacher Joseph Prince.
  • God's own defense of Scripture:


  1. Whaaahhhh!!! Good post but feel cheated this week. Always look forward to the Friday This 'N That to kick off my weekend.

    Please get back up to speed or there will be no peach pie for you ever!

    1. You forgot her extra bonus-whipped cream on top...We just have to find out how to send it through email. Honestly we just miss you when you stay gone so long~ Keep up the great reads and posts sister

      sooo apt because I just made a chess pie(yummy) and a peach pie today...

  2. I'm sorry Ebenz but you can't be preoccupied anymore. Just being factious with you. It's a privilege to be able to come to your blog and share.. Thanks for ALL your hard work and may the Lord be glorified and magnified in and through you to bring you such joy unspeakable~

    "Whatever you do do it unto the Lord with all your heart"

    1. You forgot to mention the catapult.

  3. Wonderful sermon by John..

    However my concern is when He says we cannot hear the voice of God what exactly does that encompass? does that mean that when Scripture wells up in me and is apt for a specific area in my life that God is not speaking to me(not audibly)? If John includes hearing the voice of God means when the Holy Spirit speaks Scripture- then I cannot agree with him.

    Did not Jesus say "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."

    Does not the Scripture say "Today if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts"-Heb.4:7.

    1Th 1:5 because our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction.

    The word of God really is "living and active" as I've heard God's word not audibly and nothing adding to it-no extra-biblical revelations.

    For example,, I've fretted and was so worried about something one time while going through some serious pain that I thought I would actually lose my mind. All of a sudden from nowhere and I didn't think of it, the words came up "Peace be still".. all that I feared was gone in an instant.. I believe this was from the Lord.

    I've had people insult me and all of a sudden the verse came up "The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me"

    I'm just not in agreement with God's word being treated as wooden..

  4. Luther College's is gone as are so many others. The next shenanigan about to enter Evangelical circle is how Mormonism is "almost" Christian...


Please keep it pithy (in other words, if your comment is long enough to be its own blog post, don't bother), pertinent (please don't go off-topic), and respectful (to the author, to the other readers, and to the subject of the post). If you can't do that, your comment will not be posted.
