C.S. Lewis, a parable, a story April 14, 2013 It seems to me that the pearl of great price is to know Christ. And this is life eternal that they might know thee, the only true God and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent. The reoasn we have to give everything up is because of the commandment that Thou shalt have no other gods before me. We can\'t have anything else in the world matter to us. I don\'t think it\'s a literal sell everything to get the pearl ; honestly, what could we sell that would matter? The only thing we truly have to give is our broken spirit and contrite heart. Selling our worldly possessions would be simply giving back to God what he gave us in the first place. No, I think there\'s nothing short of a complete divestment of all our worldly preoccupations that will get us the pearl.
The Countercultural Spirit of Bob Dylan March 23, 2013 This is grand...don't worry, Bob is here. Better yet, JESUS is HERE. Bob is
just a person like all of us, not to be worshiped, but he sees and is able
to tell the story very very well of our so very very precarious
position...and he don't mince words, and he don't care if you like it or
not. There is trickery all around...but then JESUS is always HERE to pull it
down to TRUTH...selah:) reliablebow (via YouTube)
God's Saving Heart in a Firefighter March 22, 2013 Amen ! Luke 19:10 God sent his Son to seek and to save that which was lost. It's the Greatest Rescue Mission Ever Undertaken to Search and Rescue all of Mankind ! Barry Carr (via YouTube)
God at Work: An Electrician March 20, 2013 yeah you're happy to for science to provide you with electricity but when it proves your god doesn't exist then science it full of shit. great logic. Joshua Turner (via You Tube)
Finding God through STARS (air ambulance) March 10, 2013 Very good. Many people make a difference in helping save lives. Stars is one
main link of the chain of survival. Only we as a team of professions with
the help from "God, Jesus and so many unseen angels of mercy can we truly
save lives or make someones pain and suffering less. Life is precious. Time
Amazing Grace says it all too well. Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and
grace will lead me home. May STARS always be just a call away.
"God Bless You All"

Jesus and the joy of drinking - part 1 March 05, 2013 I really wish Christians would be as passionate for things like justice, angry about the things that break Jesus's heart and not these "hot Button" Issues. It was WIne and not Grape juice. If you have issues with alcohol I can respect that but this is why people do not connect with the church as we argue about such dumb issues. I'm going to have a glass of wine and think of the whiners. New Hope is a church that talks about the wonders of creation and John is an amazing man with an enormous heart and knowledge of the bible. I would love to hear what people think of paul or some of the disciples if they were here on earth now. They were a wild bunch. Cheers. Brandon
What if God was one of us? March 01, 2013 I understand the dicefrenfe in theory, but in practice I don't see a lot of dicefrenfe between you all. The learning we do is always shuttling back between general and special revelation and almost every teacher does so unless they are a gnostic. We can't understand general revelation without special revelation and special revelation gives a peculiar, governing perspective on general revelation. When I listen to your sermons John Van Sloten that's very much what I hear. I hear people who for one reason or another wish to disconnect from the Bible and still do a lot of spiritual discovery, essentially based on general revelation and personal experience, but that doesn't look anything like what you do John.

March 01, 2013 both of his sons have multiple sclerosis, Ben is wheel chair bound and Zeke is highly functional and walks with a slight limp Neil had polio when he was a young boy and epilepsy later in his youth, His left side is not 100% that's why his lead parts are not fast this is in books written by his father and his sister.

Jesus and the joy of drinking February 28, 2013 Do some research before you start making blind assumptions and calling names in an effort to reinforce the fairy-tale that you want to believe. The opening statement of my comment began with "The Bible makes it clear". If you weren't too lazy to look, you'd see it for yourself. Surely, great pride and arrogance is in the heart of one who is more willing to make a theological statement out of ignorance than to take 5 min. to see what God says about it.

Jesus and the joy of drinking February 27, 2013 You are a moron.
Trying to change scripture to fit what you want to believe is dangerous. First chapter of Gal speaks of this , maybe. Take care. John Gould (via youtube)
The Large Hadron Collider - Searching for the God Particle February 25, 2013 In Ezekiel 1:3-28 and 3:12-17 it describe more clear now 2,600 years: the
appearance, landing, take-off and the flying to one great heavenly ship of discoidal shape, with many tens of metres in diameter. Ezekiel describe the under-carriage as a grup of four alive creatures what it move, it turn and it raise together with the discoidal body of the ship.Then on Earth were not wheels with rubbers and fastened of hub with bolts and nuts.

Rev. John Van Sloten preached on February 13, using the new mayor of Calgary, Alberta, as part of his “text.”
Van Sloten is the pastor of New Hope Christian Reformed Church in Calgary, and has a reputation for incorporating new media into his services and finding God in contemporary culture. The service where he used the music of Metallica eventually became a book, The Day Metallica Came to Church.
This Sunday, he focused on how the church can become a better citizen, using as an example the God-like qualities he sees in Calgary’s new mayor, Naheed Nenshi.

What if God was one of us? February 21, 2013 The "why's" are often impossible to understand. The bible's Job comes to mind... all of that suffering, and in the end all he gets is "I am God" (ch's 38ff)
The Day Metallica Came to Church - Ufonic Interview February 15, 2013 Well since THE god created the world and everything in it you can think of etc... Has a complete power and control over everything, he or she must have something to do with bad too?? Are you trying to tell me your god ( I don't have one ) was somewhat bored, decided to create the life icluding humans and make them responsible for the actions they take, expecting them to believe his existence giving them no evidence other then fairytales.. and burn them in hell for not believing.what a psycho xchaseitx
