But they kept shouting, “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!”

~Luke 23:21, NIV


If Jesus had only remained gentle and mild, the world would have embraced Him: but the revolutionary Christ who demanded repentance of sin and surrender of self was, and is rejected by the world.

~Billy Graham {Wisdom for Each Day, p.337}

Both Marx and Freud looked deeply into the human heart, saw exactly what depraved hearts wanted, and then taught that man’s depraved desires could be normalized. Sexual perversion {including pedophilia} is artistic expression, not sinful and destructive behavior. This deification of self has serious consequences that neither Marx or Freud cared to discuss. Personally, I think they were hate filled men who derived sadistic glee out of destroying others. Making oneself god is not very intelligent. Suppose you are lost in a forrest and you reach into your coat pocket and find a compass, but unknowing to you, someone has put a magnet in your back pocket. Will you find a way out of the forrest? No, the magnet in your back pocket will cause the compass to point to you rather than to the North Pole. Erwin Lutzer says, “We as a nation are no less religious than we use to  be, we have simply transferred our allegiance from God to ourselves.” A New Age author describes it like this, “We hold these ideas {not truth} to be absolute truth. Even when the inevitable happens, and selfism ruins our lives, undermines our relationships, and obsoletes our highest ideals, we still bow to the idol of self.” Tell me that this ideology is not insane. It is pure rebellion against holy God.

Jerome P. Blaggett, a professor of religion at the Jesuit School of Theology in Santa Clara, Calfornia, says, “Yes, I want to have a connection to the sacred, but I want to do it on my own terms–terms that honor who I AM as a discerning, thoughtful agent and that affirm my day to day life.” Salvation for the left is self-generated and self-driven. We save ourselves by our own personal potential and energy in route to our own personal liberation. They believe that the God of the Bible is oppressive and must be dethroned and replaced with self. They have a T-shirt that reads, “JUST WORSHIP ME AND WE WILL GET ALONG FINE!” My question is, what do they do when they run into a person wearing the same T-shirt? I don’t think you need much commentary to see through this pathetic religion that highlights cultural marxism. To paraphrase the late great C.S. Lewis, “An idol always breaks the heart of its worshippers.” I can promise you this, Jack is the last person I want to worship. I long to be delivered from myself. I close with a thought from George MacDonald, Christ died to save us, not from suffering, but from ourselves; He died that we might live; but live as He lives, by dying as he died who died to Himself that He might glorify the Father. If we do not die to ourselves, we cannot live to God, and he that does not live to God, is dead.”


It is the week before Christmas and all through our house, we are busy as beavers but not quick as a mouse. June use to bake most of my gifts but this year I have depended on personal shoppers. I made six visits yesterday in the Muscle Shoals area and Cherokee where Joe David and Hope were born. Hope has always had a dark complexion and when folks would asks her about it, she would tell, “I’m park Cherokee, I was born there.” Today we go to Limestone County where I use to make 15-20 visits but most of them have been promoted and I am down to five. LORD willing I will finish up the retirement homes tomorrow and Friday Hannah, Holly and the grands go with me to visit the Danville area shut-ins. Hopefully, we will have them all done by Christmas Eve.

I hope you have a good day and thanks for reading the blog.
