Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

A Thanksgiving song from Johnny Cash.

(I apologize for the melodramatic Dr. Quinn episode framing this song.)

Do these celebrities realize the judgment of God they're flaunting by appearing in this video?

(Because I don't think they do.)

"Vengeance belongs to Me; I will repay.
In time their foot will slip,
for their day of disaster is near,
and their doom is coming quickly."
(Deuteronomy 32:35 HCSB)

Then I saw a great white throne and One seated on it. Earth and heaven fled from His presence, and no place was found for them. I also saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged according to their works by what was written in the books. Then the sea gave up its dead, and Death and Hades gave up their dead; all were judged according to their works. Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And anyone not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.
(Revelation 20:11-15 HCSB)

[Too White] Worldview Rap With Boyce College Prof., Dr. Jim Orrick

[HT:: Timmy Brister]

If I were a betting man, I'd be willing to wager a great sum of money that you've never heard another rap song with the word Weltanschauung in it.

For considerably less weighty content, but better vocal style, check out Presbyterian pastor Ligon Duncan and his brother John, the executive producer for Ligonier Ministries in the following rap:

To hear some serious rap with great content and good style, listen to Reformed rappers, CHRISTCENTRIC.

How I found out that my friend Chris West is the coolest person I've ever met.

While reading some old blog posts from my friend Chris West (I've been too busy to do much blog reading lately), I discovered that Chuck Norris has endorsed Mike Huckabee for President.

In his post on that subject, Chris casually mentioned that as a child he had been an extra in the Norris film Invasion U.S.A. and that he has a picture of himself sitting in Chuck Norris' lap.

"Well," I thought, "Chris is a dirty liar." (Actually, I seriously thought that Chris was just kidding.)

Then I discovered from the IMDb page that Invasion U.S.A. was filmed in Atlanta, GA (near where Chris lives) in 1985.

So, I figured I should get to the bottom of this.

As I type this post, I am on the phone with Chris. (Chris does not know I'm blogging right now.)

Q: "Chris, is it true that you were an extra in Invasion U.S.A. and that you even have a picture of yourself sitting in Chuck Norris' lap."
A: "Oh, absolutely," etc. etc. etc.
My reply: "Well... then I guess you're not a dirty liar."

There you have it folks, as a child Chris West was bounced on the knee of the man who once killed four birds with half a stone, the man who is the second leading cause of death in the United States, the man who is single-handedly responsible for the fall of the Soviet Union.

This means that Chris West, the author of the unsanitarily named blog "Absolutely Spoo," the [former(?)] drummer for the death-metal/elevator music fusion band "Micah," is actually the coolest person I've ever personally met.

Go figure. < / backhanded complement >

Seriously, though-
Happy late birthday, Chris! And congratulations again on your engagement to Jennie!

Happy Belated Reformation Day

OK, so this post is a little late...

A week ago last Wednesday (October 31) was the 490th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing the 95 thesis to the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg- an action that has come to be regarded as the symbolic beginning of the Protestant Reformation. So while most of the American populace was tricking and/or treating, we at Southern Seminary and at my local church- Kosmosdale Baptist Church- were celebrating Reformation Day (Abby went with Christian over to KBC while I was at work so they could watch the movie Luther).

Though the following has been around the Internet the past couple of weeks, I only got the chance to watch it a few days ago- so, if you've missed it, enjoy the "Reformation polka:"

Also, if you didn't see it on my family blog, check out the picture Abby took of Christian and me with the Reformation pumpkin in the Boyce Centennial Library:

Christian was so excited. :|
