YouTube – Christian Martyrs in Turkey

Christian Martyrs in Turkey.

Amazing to consider that Turkey was one of the main areas of the early church.  Of course, some of those missionaries were martyred as well.

If Turkey were to enter the EU, it and France would be the only two countries that explicitly call for the separation of church and state in their constitutions.

Limited Atonement … in Rap – “He Tried”

I never thought I’d hear any song, let alone a rap song, about Limited Atonement:

“I may be called Antinomian or Calvinist for preaching a limited atonement; but I had rather believe a limited atonement that is efficacious for all men for whom it was intended, than a universal atonement that is not efficacious for anybody, except the will of man be joined with it.”

What do you do when things don’t go as planned?

While God commends the development of skill (Prov. 22:29), and laziness is no excuse for lack of preparation, there are times that even deliberate practice doesn’t keep us from messing up. But God’s strength is perfected in our weakness. When things don’t go as planned, people are able to see more clearly our humanity, and hopefully our humility.

Of course, some times we can cover up mistakes without anyone noticing or being distracted. If you can do that, great. But there are other times (like playing in two keys) when the best choice is simply to stop what you’re doing and start over. Amazingly enough, God can continue working, even through our mistakes.
