You will not believe this. Please put down the brick. John Chis-ham got it right!

 John Chis ham does not preach a 1/2 bad sermon. He really should listen to it a few times.

John is your typical “Fire and Brimstone” type preacher in a sense. His intensity is pretty off the hook. If emergents spread their views with this much vigor, there might not be as much hurt in this world. Maybe a few more kids would be alive. But lets move on, Shall we?

His preaching topic is that Christians do not have to become Jews to become Christians. They have no need to follow the old Jewish  laws, one being circumcision, to follow Christ. He makes reference to the Pharisees  who  demanded the old laws be followed as well as the modifications they came up with. All in the name of doing more pleasing works for God.

The problem is, neither John or Paul could make up their mind. Because in different conversations, both Paul and John Chis ham continue to follow and preach the old law. At the same time preaching the new.

I don’t think you can have it both ways. But somehow John and Paul think we can.

So John, listen to your sermon.  Be blessed. Who knows, your heart might be in the right place. It could happen!

I want to be a blogger! Here is my idea!

Folks, I need your help.  I want to be a blogger.  That’s the first thing.  I’m not really sure why I want to be a blogger.  I think it’s because I get a lot of information from blogs and tend to look up to those that blog well.

I have read that in order to have a successful blog, it must stay on topic, be timely , and interesting.  Problem is, I’m truly not that interesting.  But, I would like to be, “interesting”.

So I read a glimpse of a person that attended a different church per week for a year.  I would like to attend a different denomination per week ” or so ” to get a real life education on what makes all these groups click.  With interviews, pictures, and brief back round study.

My thought is it would help me grasp an understanding of denominations in real time.  What makes them tick.  Makes them unique.  Or alike.

So give me some suggestions.  What would you like to see happen?  Would it interest you?  What would you like to know?  I would like it to be somewhat interactive.  So , help me out!
