Hymn Stories: Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah
8 hours ago
It cannot be too often, or too loudly, or too solemnly repeated, that the Bible, which ranges over a period of four thousand years, records but one instance of a death-bed conversion—one that none may despair, and but one that none may presume. (via: JT)So, for me the answer is to remember that, yes and amen, God can save men like Christopher Hitchens who reject, ridicule, and rebuff Him their entire lives to the very end. The reality, however, is that Hitchens probably went into eternity having stored up wrath for himself by continually taking advantage of the kindness of a holy God.
Christianity is not just an experience, we need to remember, it is about truth. The experience of being reconciled to the Father, through the Son, by the work of the Holy Spirit all happens within a worldview. This worldview is the way God has taught us in his Word to view the world. That is why the Bible begins with Genesis 1:1 and not John 3:16. (Wells, Courage to Be Protestant, 45)The World Tilting Gospel is at its core a book about the full truth of the gospel in its purpose, its content, and its implications. Through the course of TWTG Phillips shines a biblical light on:
|Our Jesse tree|
For each day the family looks at a passage of scripture and there is an ornament that corresponds to the passage that is put on the Jesse tree. There are usually between 25 and 30 passages depending on whose version you use. There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse,
and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.
