I know we are a couple weeks into the new year and I am sure that some of the things we really wanted to do this year have already fallen by the way side. So now maybe we sit down and think about things that are important, that really would matter. Look around you and see the needs, people struggling with every kind of situation and really thinking no one cares. It is important that we begin to show those people that we do care, not just about what they are facing here and now, but what happens when they leave here. This needs to be the year we decide to tell those around us about Jesus. If you are not sure click on the title above and read the 5 reasons Greg Stier gives for sharing your faith this year.
I have found that most any kind of music can catch my attention, and the song in this video just such a song.. According to the information sent the original version of Taps was actually called Last Post, but because of its length it was shortened to the version we know today. This is the original version and it is played on the Trumpet by 13 year old Melissa Venema. Click on the title above and enjoy.

In this commentary Dr. Albert Mohler talks about the importance the creation-evolution debate, and how the leader of one foundation is striving to influence the church's way of thinking. One part that seems to the norm, Mr. Falk not only does not believe the creation account but has problems accepting other parts as well. I have stated this on several occasions over the past year that you cannot reject Genesis 1and not have it effect how the person views the rest of the Bible.

In Fort Worth Texas a group began running ads on buses that read "Millions of Americans are good without God". This is where we as Christians tend to be short sighted, because they were offended Christians in that area boycotted public transportation and demanded the ads be removed. They got results; the transportation authority removed the ads, and both sides cheered. Strange reaction, not really both sides got what they wanted. Christians got the ads removed, and in the process all religious ads are now banned on public transportation. The Atheist got what they really wanted all along, the possibility of ever mentioning God in that forum removed. At some point in Fort Worth will be screaming made because they cannot advertise some city wide crusade or other event. Sometimes we need to think a little before we react.
