    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    If you're interested in learning more about God, you can leave a message here, you could go to this site and leave a message or you can read on.



    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    Media

       Media... What effect does it have on us? What does it matter if we watch the news? Why should I care if I watch a gory movie as long as I realize that it is just a movie and not real?

       Media has a huge impact on society, most people just don't realize it. The news is filled with murders, rapes, vandalism, etc, etc. All of this slowly errodes our 'walls of morals', meaning that our chance of doing such a thing increases. I mean, it is what everyone's doing isn't it? This is the same thing that got so many addicted to smoking.

       You might say, "So what not watching the media is simply lying to yourself about what the world is really like!" I agree with this whole heartedly, but when you think of all that is bad in the world, try to find the good things in it too! That way, you're more likely to do what is right.

       So... what about movies? Same thing applies here. There are some really good movies out there, but usually they're poor quality and looked down upon by society. Everyone likes the movies where you can see the blood splatter.

       Well, what I'm trying to say is that the old saying, 'what goes in, comes out' is more accurate than most people would like to think.

       If you think that I have this one nailed, you'd be wrong. I struggle with what to watch and what not to watch. Lately, I just try to avoid movies all together and watch cartoons. Cartoons still aren't that good, but they make a good alternative.
