Today at 07:58 AM Happy Birthday to the Highway Pilgrim by chestnutmare

This comes a day late and for that I apologize. October 27th was Pilgrim's 70th birthday!

Happy Birthday to you.

Psalm 99:10 "The days of our years are threescore years and ten,
Or even by reason of strength fourscore years"

Happy Birthday to my beloved husband who turns 70 (plus one day), today!

I am thankful for his life and faith, ever an example to me and comfort for the time the Lord has granted to us. Thankful for his ministry and steadfast faith in the Lord. May the Lord grant you many more years in His service.

Seeing God’s glory everywhere

Edwards calls the Word of God the “chief” and “soul” of the means of grace. More than anything else, it serves to center our practice of the faith. In the Word of God, we learn Heaven’s language so that when we interact with others, gaze upon creation’s beauty, pray, fast, keep Sabbath, meditate and contemplate the truths of God, we come to “hear” and “read” about God’s truthfulness and faithfulness everywhere we look. No wonder Edwards could say, “I believe that the whole universe, heaven and earth, air and seas, and the divine constitution and history of the holy Scriptures, be full of images of divine things, as full as a language is of words ... .”

To see Christ as the glorious and beautiful Lamb of God we need the Spirit to reveal him to our hearts directly.
The Scriptures are the musical score that teaches the language of God, and all creation serves as the symphony proclaiming the glory and beauty of its creator. As we “read” all reality, we bask in the glory, beauty and goodness of the God of grace. Our hearts are moved in love as we both watch and participate in the “theatre of God’s glory.”

Reading God’s Word in the Spirit is learning to read all of reality in light of who God is. Scripture become the lens through which everything else becomes clear. This is the reading that leads to wisdom. Fleshly reading puffs up with fleshly knowledge, but the means of grace—reading in the Spirit—holds you always before Christ as your Savior, King and Lord.

~ Jonathan Edwards

Friday, October 14, 2016 8:14 AM Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party by Pilgrim

I would strongly recommend and encourage ALL to get a copy of this revealing movie. Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party

Why? Because in a very short while, on Tuesday November 8, Americans are given the opportunity to vote for either preserving the United States as its founders intended, as a free Repbulic, or to vote to allow the country to be changed into a globalist socialist state. Christians, especially, should be most interested for if the later happens, then our religious liberty and any sense of morality will be lost. This election is not a choice between good and evil. Nor is it a choice between politcial parties; Republican vs. Democrat or some other party. The choice is between protecting those freedoms guaranteed to all of its citizens, including the unborn, enumerated in the Constitution or having a government which will have control over nearly every part of one's life which hates God and all that is good.

We are not voting to appoint a pastor, but someone who will fight to keep the Constitution and protect the citizens of its country from terrorism without and tyranny within. To put it simply, this election will determine the future of the United States. God has determined what will happen to America and He has ordained the means to that end. It is not an election about which candidate is less evil, although there is a huge chasm which separates the two major candidates. Both candidates are sinners. There is no "good man" or "good woman" to choose. Hillary Clinton has a proven record of lies, corruption and deceit. Donald Trump has no political record to testify against him. We know what Hillary/Bill Clinton stand for and their agenda. We do not know for certain what Donald Trump will do, but he does have a verifiable track record for his economic and business dealings which would certainly benefit the U.S. IF he is does what he has openly said he wants to do, then for those who would desire America to be purged of corruption, be fiscally responsible, protect the freedoms they have enjoyed, defend its borders, appoint conservative judges to the Supreme Court, etc., etc., then he is without question the right choice.

VOTE on November 8!!

Thursday, October 13, 2016 12:15 PM Contemplative Spirituality Heresy? by Tom

Recently when talking about 'contemplative spirituality', I called it heresy.
The response I got was basically to take a valumme, heresy is meant for essential doctrines.
Personally I think I am correct to call contemplative spirituality, and other things like it heresy. However, I do not want to misrepresent the issue.

Monday, October 10, 2016 2:05 PM Question about Luther and Calvin by Tom

Recently I was told something that I find odd if true.
I was told that both Luther and Calvin believed that faith preceded regeneration.
I did not respond because I am no expert in either of the two.
Yet it would seem odd to me given the title of Luther's book 'The Bondage of the Will', that he would believe that faith precedes regeneration.
Anyone got anything that would show what Luther and Calvin believed on this issue?
