The Gospel According to Conan

I'm not sure but I think Conan O' Brien just gave me a bit of Gospel truth.

Like a lot of other people I've been following this NBC feud very closely. And as it's gone on my respect for Conan has grown immensely. I've always been a fan of Conan- but watching this controversy play out has allowed me to see a truly good man in the television industry.

That respect reached a pinnacle tonight. His final monologue was full of humility and grace- thanking NBC for his opportunities. He said something that stopped me in my tracks: " I'm asking this particularly of young people that watch- Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism. For the record it's my least favorite quality. It doesn't lead anywhere." He's right! It got me thinking about how our cynicism in dealing with "the world" chokes out the gospel. How my constantly questioning others motives only leads to bitterness and promotes no good thing. The only thing cynicism seems to do for me is weigh-down the freedom in my soul. I'm not saying I've decided to abandon common sense. But i am saying maybe there is something more to being positive- to seeing the good in things- in people. To give respect even when another trys to take mine. To extend love before skepticism- mercy before judgment.

That's a tall order for me. But with the Almighty's help, well worth the undertaking.
Thanks for the preaching Conan. I hope I see ya in September.

Let's Talk About Mary

There is a broad gap between how Catholics and Pentecostals feel about Mary the mother of Jesus. Catholics venerate Mary very highly- above all other saints. While Pentecostals for the most part believe that she was simply chosen because she was willing and obedient. What do you think? Was she immaculately conceived? Did she ascend into Heaven? Is she the Queen of Heaven? Most importantly, should she receive more veneration then we currently give her as Pentecostals?

Well? So what do you think?

Murder in the City

The Avett Brothers are definitely worth looking into. You'll like this.

The Low Anthem

The Prosperity through Pain Gospel. Part 2

(Note: This blog is not meant to be a complete treatise on why we have pain. For a good start on that subject check out C.S. Lewis' The Problem with Pain.)

We need to realize pain is a part of our fallen world. We were never promised what we consider a fair deal; that if we work hard we'll be fine. We we're never guaranteed physical and financial well-being. Jesus said we would have trouble. It was a guarantee. But he also said to fear not because he has overcome the world.

Through Christ everything works for are good even if we never understand why or how it works for our good. It is important to remember when the hard times come (and if they haven't, they will) that anything God allows to happen to us is for are ultimate good and even more importantly, his ultimate glory.

He really does love us and even if he disciplines us it's out of a heart that defines the word love. He is not angry at us. We are his children and he does everything out of his perfect love for us.

All the pain that we experience, that our Father allows us to experience, is so that we might become more like Christ. That is where true prosperity is found.
