Respect for the Office

There has been a lot of disrespect coming from many Americans these days. Don’t get me wrong; there was some disrespect a few years ago too. It’s not always one side or the other. Here is a blog post with a good perspective, written during Mr. Obama’s time in office.


Jesus of Nazareth (from the film)

I found this video on YouTube which takes a few scenes from the end of Jesus’ life on earth and ends with His Great Commission (postresurrection) from Matthew 28:18–20. I also heard the actor who portrays Jesus in the film today on the Eric Metaxas show. The film aired 40 years ago; Robert Powell plays the part of Jesus of Nazareth. The director was Franco Zeffirelli. I also recommend that you watch from this film the Sermon on the Mount as it is known (can also be found on YouTube).

Salvation, the Gospel, involves a response

This blog has covered much of what is said in this video. This is a very biblical approach to the question, “What must I do to be saved?” Some will bristle when they hear this question. But notice, in the New Testament, no one was ever rebuked for asking this question. We know that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God according to Romans 10:17. We also know that Jesus promised that if people came to Him, He would never cast them out. (See John 6:37.)
