For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

This morning's teaching at Xenos Westerville

Re: Integrity in Xenos sermon this morning.

I am grateful Sunday mornings for the privilege of meeting to worship our God.   My wife, Jeanie, and I have chosen Xenos of Westerville for the last few years.  So many times I have prayed for Christians all over this world, whether Sunday morning or whenever, who gather like us to worship our creator, God.

Paul Alexander was his messenger today and he did a wonderful job.  Xenos, a church in Columbus, Ohio, started at Ohio State University, must qualify as a mega church, which to me means 2000 worshippers a week.  I have never heard bad teaching at Xenos from perhaps ten different presenters.

Young Mr. Alexander poured his soul into this teaching with personal history, Beatles' song quotes, and bible scriptures from First John.  I, along with so many, was very impressed.

Paul A. cited Jesus' teaching and healing of the blind man, blind from birth.  Pharisees attending asked John: "If you aren't the Messiah or Elijah, or the prophet, what right do you have to baptize?"  John Replied:  "I merely baptize with water, but right here in the crowd is someone you have never met, who will ... babtize with the Holy Spirit, and I am not even fit to be his slave."

Christ was the great teacher and he performed miracles before many witnesses.  His teachings have been quoted more than any other quotes from literature throughout the nearly 2000 years since.

We recently witnessed another shooting by a crazed individual, but we must also bear witness to the love of our God in sending His beloved son.

He loves even the imperfect creations like me, and even Jeanie.
