Note Well (A Break from the Previous Subject Matter)

Perhaps I have not made some things clear with regard to this blog.

After receiving some "odd" responses, which I refused to allow to grace these pages, I feel compelled to make a few things clear concerning what the purpose of these pages are and what they are not.

What It Is

This "blog" is first and foremost to give Glory to my Heavenly Father.
Second, it is a bit of a map of the journey I travel on this earth since the Lord saved my soul.
Third, it is a place where those that the Lord has saved can respond freely without fear of harsh judgment and cruelty; a place where friendly dialogue can take place.

What it is NOT

This blog is not a place for those with differing religious or even atheistic viewpoints to come and attack the beliefs expressed here, nor is it a place where you may come verbally beat me up because of your own lack of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and/or your hatred of mine.

You see, my faith, my beliefs, my salvation, and my earnest desire to follow my Lord are not up for debate. Therefore, I'll not entertain these sorts of posts. Hence the reason all comments are moderated.

"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."
Romans 1:21-22; 28-32

one of the most awesome (in the fearful sense) thoughts of God - that He can turn us over to ourselves 'reprobate mind' in your quote/version... this has always stayed at the back of my mind and been a motivator of doing good.

Love ya Buddy!!

But isn't He wonderful in that He calles us by His Grace and keeps us in perfect peace as our minds stay upon Him?

I do maintain that there is a healthy level of fear towards God and maintain that anyone who says they are unafraid of God and what He can, should He so choose to, do with total justification, are total fools and have never seen that God is Almighty and not merely this world's version of a helpless figure they paint Him to be.

Love you C!! Love and pray for you daily!! ((Hugs))
