Preach the Word
As Paul says,
Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
2 Timothy 4:2
As it happened with the early church, so too we’ll find subsequent generations trying to pass along an empty, hollow shell of Christianity absent of the Holy Spirit. You can pass along your knowledge of Chemistry or Psychology without the Holy Spirit. Not so with our faith. There is a reality and a purity which is unalterable and dogmatic:
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! Gal. 1:8
The gospel is merely a hodge-podge of collective religious ideas: that was the gist of the Judiazers of Paul’s day. Today, it’s similar: "You can’t really be sure what it says, it’s not a clear book…" Christianity is becoming merged with the New World Religion of Postmodernism, and it’s called the Emergent Church.
We live in a post-Christian era because we have decided that God’s Word does not deserve the treatment Paul gave it in Gal.1:8 and 2 Tim. 4:2. Upon these issues rest our spiritual lives and that of our families.
- Paul’s Loneliness
- The Relaxed Parent
“he is to be accursed!”- literally God damn him, right? I had fun teaching this to my HS cell.
Check out http://englishrussia.com/?p=501 I’m specifically interested in the “Tag Cloud” on the right of the page. http://www.stereogum.com has the same thing going on. I’d love to get a plugin going for this kind of thing. It takes the things that you’ve tagged or talked about most frequently and displays them on the side of the page with the most frequent the largest.
It looks like http://lorelle.wordpress.com/2005/10/23/the-ultimate-tag-warrior-wordpress-plugin/
does this kind of stuff, but seems a little complicated…
I installed Ultimate Tag Warrier. We’re using it on our Zine, it’s extremely flexible with great features and also sample code which can be easily installed. Just goto your Plugins, activate it. Also, check out the main blog for info (http://neonets.org/blog).
