How many times have we made Jesus look like an idiot??

Don't worry, I'm not talking about YOU or ME!! we're PERFECT!!

Never forget what Jesus did for you. Never take lightly what
it cost Him. And never assume that if it cost Him His very
life, that it won't also cost you yours.
-Rich Mullins-

Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital
is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed
if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of
capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.
-Abraham Lincoln-

There is nothing wrong with men possessing riches.
The wrong comes when riches possess men.
-Billy Graham-

A nation that continues year after year to spend
more money on military defense than on programs
of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.-

Almost always, the creative dedicated
minority has made the world better.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.-

I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility
against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.
-Thomas Jefferson-

Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.
-George Washington-

"And this is what I have come to think: That if I want to
identify fully with Jesus Christ, whom I claim to be my
Savior and Lord the best way that I can do that is to
identify with the poor. This I know will go against the
teachings of all the popular evangelical preachers. But
they are just wrong. They're not bad, they]re just wrong.
Christianity is not about building an absolutely secure little
niche in the world where you can live with your perfect little
wife and your perfect little children in your beautiful little
house where you have no gays or minority groups anywhere
near you. Christianity is about learning to love like Jesus
loved and Jesus loved the poor and Jesus loved the broken "
-Rich Mullins-

We are not cisterns made for hoarding, we are channels
made for sharing.
-Billy Graham-

Radical changes in world politics leave America with a
heightened responsibility to be, for the world, an example
of a genuinely free, democratic, just and humane society.
-Pope John Paul II-

In the last analysis, the individual person is responsible for
living his own life and for "finding himself." If he persists in
shifting his responsibility to somebody else, he fails to find
out the meaning of his own existence.
-Thomas Merton-

The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little.
-Thomas Merton-

We do not exist for ourselves.
-Thomas Merton-

Pervading nationalism imposes its dominion on man today
in many different forms and with an aggressiveness that
spares no one. The challenge that is already with us is the
temptation to accept as true freedom what in reality is
only a new form of slavery.
-Pope John Paul II-

An individual has not started living until he can rise above
the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the
broader concerns of all humanity.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.-

As we must account for every idle word, so must we account
for every idle silence.
-Benjamin Franklin-

Government of the people, by the people, for the people,
shall not perish from the Earth.
-Abraham Lincoln-

You can't be evangelical and associate yourself with
Jesus and what he says about the poor and just have
no other domestic concerns than tax cuts for wealthy
-Jim Wallis-

When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is
lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is
-Billy Graham-

As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master.
This expresses my idea of democracy.
-Abraham Lincoln-

When we see people suffer, it is our duty as followers of
Jesus to seek a solution, if we can unite for wars, why
can't we unite for social and economic justice, we must
act as a community making sure all are treated fairly.

How can we think we can act as no more than loosly
connected individuals with no common interest? with no
God given human rights and claim to be patriotic, how
can we say we are NOT our "brother's keeper" and claim
to follow Jesus!

"Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not
prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out
demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them
plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'

if progressives would go back to church.... and grin and
bear it..... the people they thought were idiots, usually will
end up being great Godly people. they need to see the

I have heard some fellow Christians state that it should be the churches who take care of the poor and the oppressed instead of the government..that taxation is stealing from the rich. My response is this.... If the WE are willing to help the needy... and are capable of doing it... WHERE ARE WE NOW? WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT THE CURRENT SUFFERING NOW? please ... anyone... how will we explain this to God!!

Christianity should not be promoting the interests of the wealthy and the powerful

The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.

Reach for GOD by 1illustratinglady

  It isn't about Religion..   it is Spiritual!
  It isn't about us..    it is about our LORD!!
  It's about His LOVE!
  It's about His GRACE!
  It's about His FORGIVENESS!
  It's about His MERCY!
  It's about His mighty STRENGTH!!
  It is all about giving HIM all His GLORY!!

  In our trials and tribulations we live and we learn!

  He never leaves us!
  Believe JESUS is bigger and stronger than any problem you will ever      have!!
  God is Shining!! God is holding tight!! God is real!!

   1 Timothy 13-16
13 I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things,  and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;

14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

15 Which in His times He shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.

  Romans 5

5 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

8 But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

9 Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when  there is no law.

14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of Him that was to come.

15 But not as the offense, so also is the free gift. For if through the offense of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offenses unto justification.

17 For if by one man's offense death reigned by one; much more they  which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

18 Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to  condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

20 Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:

21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.


Glory be to God by 1illustratinglady

Hebrews 11
King James Version (KJV)
11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.

3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.

16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:

19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.

21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.

24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;

25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:

33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.

34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

38 (Of whom the world was not worthy) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
