This world is one big game of "Go"-- Black against White, Light against Darkness --and we all have a choice to make: Do we war FOR the Light?

...or against it?




Here's a man EVERYONE should be praying for



Anyone who thinks God does NOT strike people down for blasphemy and all around evilness, in this day and age, is kidding himself. If God exists, and does not change, the things He allowed 2,000 years ago, He still allows (for the most part) today.

Bill Maher is perhaps the vilest man on television, but he has a soul... a soul bound for eternal damnation. No, I do not like the man; I find him condescending, arrogant and consistently infuriating, but that's okay. I'm allowed that. What I am NOT allowed, however, is to hate him.

I have no other choice, therefore, but to pray for him. His soul is without price. Were you able to mine the entire universe of all it's resources; gold, diamonds, energy, metal, etc, you could not reach the value (in terms of eternity) of even one human soul. Your soul is the most precious thing you possess, and you should not be weighting it down with blasphemy and sin.

If anyone ever need prayer, it's Bill Maher.Without forgiveness through Jesus Christ our Lord, he is doomed. Who knows how much time this man has left; we can't even know our own appointed time. It's clear, then, that today is the day of salvation. Right now. This minute. Don't put it off.

I encourage all of you to put this man's name on your prayer list.

Kim Jong-Il is Dead     1941 - 2011

Again...

No one, not even Kim Jong Il, need ever end up in hell. But that is likely where he is now. I would not wish that fate on anyone.

He had his life, and squandered it. He lived like a king, albeit in more communistic terms, but he was, for all intents and purposes the emperor of North Korea. He lived sumptuously while his people starved (Luke 16:19-31). He blustered and shook every sabre at his disposal over any and every threat (most of which whose sole desire was to see his people treated more humanely). But Kim Jong-Il was an irrational and paranoid man.

His is a kingdom that truly deserves to fall. It remains to be seen, however, whether or not his son is cut of the same cloth. Will he be able to consolidate power? Will he follow in his father's godless footsteps and join him, in time, in the fires of hell? Or will he find faith? Here now is someone we can pray for-- Kim Jong-Un. Someone for whom it is not too late.

No prayer now can help the father, however. He will get his day in court, as it were, at the great white throne judgment, but that judgment, I should point out, is for the wicked-- not for anyone with any hope of seeing heaven.

It is better that a man live in fear of the Lord, rather than any man with power to starve you... kill your body. Better to fear God who can destroy both body AND soul in hell.

I would say, 'God, grant him peace,' but that's not to be his fate. There is no peace for the wicked; not in this life, or the next.

Christopher Hitchens is Dead     1949 - 2011


And now he knows for certain the existence, glory, and holiness of God. And he knows hell... Intimately.

It's a shame, actually. No one should ever have to end up there. Not even the likes of Hitler, or Bin Laden. God is not willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL should come to repentance.

It's too late for him now. And it's too late for any of us to pray for him. But surely there is some like him which you know; it's not too late for them. You can pray now for them. And continue praying. God hears those kind of prayers... the persistent kind.

At a loss for a title...

the Mask we wear
is wrought of air
press-dried ~ hard
and daubed with care
it does not hide
the face it bears
but hides the eyes
and heart it shares

what lies beneath
our tongue and teeth
are but dogs and vipers
loosed in sheath
take it off
and all will know
the face we've hid
and fear to show

yet the Mask is brief
it's like a leaf
swift from bud
and on to grief
we'd all do well
to speak our minds
cast off the shell
we hide behind

off, or on
~ it's naught to me
but worn to long
it becomes thee
