A Call for Guest Blog Posts

Hello readers!  I have a very busy week ahead. With that, and the fact that I’m renovating this website, I think it’s a great time to hear from you. If there is something you’ve been wanting to shout from the rooftops, please feel free to write a guest blog. Perhaps you strongly disagree with something I’ve written, and want to write a point by point refutation. Go for it! Perhaps you want to write a promotional piece for a charity, a special event, or for your own blog or website (link-juice for the Google gods). This is an open invitation to anyone, writing about any subject. If I don’t hear from you, I’ll post links to interesting blog posts or articles, and I’ll get back to blogging ASAP.

Here’s an excellent article by Rachel Held Evans, author of A Year of Biblical Womanhood.

    Alice, you’d be a whole lot wiser if you’d just close down this site and shut up. I’m sure you could do better things with your time: things that women aught to be doing.

    I love the opinion piece by Rachel Held Evans. I agree totally with her assessment of evangelicalism’s act of pitting “taking a stand against gay marriage” against the mission of feeding the hungry and with her larger critique of evangelicalism’s fanatical devotion to opposing this or that “evil” in the culture. I agree that heeding Christ’s call to love and serve others, while adopting a stance of humility with regard to our own beliefs and views about morality, is the path that Christians ought to take – not the path of using the world’s methods to win against “enemies.” And I agree that evangelicalism’s misplaced priorities and faulty methods have been a major factor in turning off younger generations to the church.

    Thanks for sharing this. It is an excellent piece, I agree.

      So, Mary, you are in favor of soft-peddling and marginalizing truth to hold teen interest? Right when teens need an anchor for their souls, you toss them overboard into relativism? I’m sure glad you’re not my mother, or I’d not been a virgin when I got married. EVERYONE who lost their virginity is at an extreme disadvantage for their ENTIRE life-time. They are defective and ruined souls destined to pass their ruination on for four generations.

      Virgin saints, men and women, aught not to consider marrying any one less than a fourth generation saint.

      for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me {Exodus 20: 5}

      Any one, not raped, who looses their virginity, whether homosexually or heterosexually, has hated God and despised Him as proven by their continued promiscuity.

        If you want to see and hear four good Christian testimonies of women saved from such ruin click

        and fast forward to the 21:30 minute mark.
        It might be necessary to pause about 15 seconds to prevent stop breaks for better listening.
        At the 33:00 mark the fourth woman begins and she had been a roommate with one of a woman in my church named Zoe Lang out here in Mormon Utah.

        Beyond her testimony are two men’s testimonies which are not quite as rivetting, yet nonetheless interesting; and then at the 1:05:00 begins the pastor’s preaching with informative remarks about working that kind of ministry.

        If Lost Signal message shows up reclick the start arrow to restore the signal. The site does work most of the time, just have patience and persistence.

      Pitifully, Mary, you wrote, “with regard to our own beliefs and views about morality” making morality an human invention, instead of the Creator’s designed unalterable standard for those creatures He created in His Own image to radiate that image.

      it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. {1 Peter 1: 16}

      WHO is exempt, Mary?
      is it written, Be ye an holy lesbian; for I am an holy “homo”?
      Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

      Was it really your intention to separate morality from God to distinguish relative human morality? Do you really think God’s moral standard for mankind should be minimized to protect the effectiveness of the service gospel?

      But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful. {Romans 7: 13}

      Salvation is FROM SIN not TO THE CHURCH. Mary, you want to save teens to the church, instead of from sin. You want to build up a social club, because that’s what your church is. Real evangelism is the saving of souls from the penalty, power, and presence of sin, and if sin is not known, there’s no need of saving. That’s where Romans 7: 13 requires the preaching of God’s Law and its condemning power, hence penalty, meaning eternal torment. Teens need to become aware by preaching what their violations of God’s Law are doing to their insides actually working death in them instead of satisfaction. They know the emptiness, but are unable to define it as the emptiness of death, the opposite of the satisfaction of life. That death is inescapable eternal torment that they need to learn to dread and fear. They already know they don’t have the satisfaction of life, yet they haven’t envisioned the opposite in which they are without first being educated in the hell, fire, and brimstone Gospel that can save them. No other gospel can. No other gospel can educate them in reality: what’s in their gut. They don’t know where they’re going, but they know it is not good. They need to be told and those who love them with God’s love will preach the hell-fire Gospel to them. Those whom God has ordained to life will get saved and the rest, the majority, will perish as part of the greater than 90% in the inescapable eternal Lake of Fire.

      Mary,
      this>> ” not the path of using the world’s methods to win against “enemies.”” makes me think of this… “love your enemies” and “pray for those who despitefully use you” but all too often we see our brethren resorting to a “war of roses” method to take out anyone who stands in their way. 🙁 We need to rise up to what God calls us to.. love others.

    Here’s from this morning’s news and your liiberal religion is at fault for confusing the fundamental Gospel.

    Schlemmer went on to explain she “thought she could be a better mother” to the oldest boy “if the other two boys weren’t around and they would be better off in heaven.” {This mother sat on her two little boys in the bath tub to drown them and then hid her wet clothes.}

    The majority of humanity are listening to liberalism and therefore the truth is muffled. Liberalism is NOT Christianity. It is a hellish lie. And Mary believes this mother is part of the family of God?
