I enjoyed that video! I've seen something similar more patriotic style, I believe it was a movie from a student, won several awards. The approach (forwards/backwards) was novel at the time.

Hope is alive, I believe that we can find God, not just religion. Religion is a club, but does not provide a personal relationship with God. Here's to a new beginning for everyone on 1/1/12!

Does it have anything to do with the new school at the church?

Well...the big news for 1-1-12.com was the expansion and re-naming to Eastside Baptist, it will now be called "Nebo Crossing"...

Folks check out the website...if didn't think that place was turning into a cult or "super-church", then take a look.

Here is a part of Pastor Ritter's blog. This is from a story titled "2 Minutes of Courage".

"As I have been calling the men of our church to be courageous men, God allowed me an opportunity to either practice what I preach or cower in passivity.

Monday, October 17 found me in a BBQ restaurant here in our small town being checked by Secret Service as the President of the United States was about to stop in for lunch. I was going to get to meet him. What would I say? I knew I was about to be afforded a once in a lifetime opportunity. Should I voice my many concerns about his policies and the absence of God in his many decisions? As I looked around the room, I wondered what would the people in my small town think if I disagreed vocally with the President? After all, I represent my church! That's when it happened, in about half a second the Holy Spirit wounded my heart! He flashed before my mind the sermons that I had preached about the absence of men of courage in this great country! I decided then and there that today I would look for any opportunity to be courageous and voice my heart for right. It was also very important to me to show respect to the President.

So many times I have seen the carriers of Truth lose their credibility with the world because they fail to couple this Truth with the love of Christ. In a few courageous minutes with the President and with the press, I had voiced my concerns. But what would that do? Certainly the President's agenda would not change because of my brief comments. I pillowed my head Monday night knowing I had been courageous and believing God was pleased with the way I had represented Him."

Then Pastor Bob appears on Hannity. This is his entire conversation with the president according to what the pastor told Sean Hannity.

"I let him know that I was a pastor at a local church and let him know that we pray for him often,'' Ritter said. "And he said he believes in the power of prayer. He said he was trying to get some jobs to the area, so that's good to hear.

So Pastor Bob didn't have the guts to confront Obama and then went on Hannity and his blog to talk about what a bad ass he was.

When a church becomes more of a corporation than a body of believers is when I steer away.

It's not a church when they refer to those leading as "staff", it's a business.

Some disagree, some agree, some fear the truth and others bash it in order to get attention. Its a bizarre mental thing witin a segment of human beings. Many experts have spent a great deal of time trying to understand this subject. The only conclusion they have found in common with these people is selfishness and a lack of desire to share their good fortune and most learned this trait from their parents. The long and short of it is stingy, self centered people looking for a way to avoid giving anything to anyone.

I can't tell if you're speaking against me or with me..

Maybe next time you'll actually have a paragraph that has a valid point, other than you rambling.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
