Pastor Rolf Anderson commented on Walter Ulrich Kirchbauer's blog post KNOWING GOD AND IDOLATRY
"Yes, idolatry is present in many forms and traps for us. And, it does indeed boil down to a diminished image of the one true God. A. W. Tozer has written some very basic truth here. Thanks for posting it, Brother Walter!"

The Bible is full of predictions and prophesy, many of which have been fulfilled, like those about Christ's birth and death, others have yet to be fulfilled, and these are targets for modern day prophets. The most popular prophesy for modern day prophets is the date of the end of the world or the second coming. Over the past two-thousand years there have been literally thousands of predictions as to these dates, and almost every generation since Jesus told us He was coming back, have wondered and tried to work out if they were in the 'end-times'. Needless to say all of those predictions for the end of the world have been wrong. In the last couple of years there have been several high profile predictions, where people have told the world that the Earth will come to an abrupt end at a particular time on a certain day, and have staked their reputation upon their calculations. All of these people, ministers, pastors, scientists, cranks, have one thing in common, they were all wrong.As I w…

"The wisdom of the fathers" KNOWING GOD AND IDOLATRY Among the sins to which the human heart is prone, hardly any other is more hateful to God than idolatry, for idolatry is at bottom a libel on His character. The idolatrous heart assumes that God is other than He is - in itself a monstrous sin - and substitutes for the true God one made after its own likeness. Always this God will conform to the image of the one who created it and will be base or pure, cruel or kind, according to the moral state of the mind from which it emerges. A god begotten in the shadows of a fallen heart will quite naturally be no true likeness of the true God. ”Thou thoughtest,” said the Lord to the wicked man in the psalm, “that I was altogether such as one as thyself.” Surely this must be a serious affront to the Most High God before whom cherubim and seraphim continually do cry, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Sabaoth.”Let us beware lest we in our pride accept the erroneous notion that idolatry consists only…

The wisdom of the fathers PEARLS OF DIVINE PROMISES    4"Solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil." (Heb. 5.14)                                                                                                     The more we practice obedience, the more our minds gets trained to recognise the will of God straight away and easily. A constant and daily obedience is therefore of the utmost importance for the whole, inner development of our spiritual life. For "to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat... of rams." (1. Sam. 15.22) Obedient children are a joy for their parents and nothing pleases God more than our exact obedience."Afterward David's conscience was stricken for having cut off a corner of Saul's robe. He said to his men: 'The Lord forbid that I should do such a thing to my master, the Lords anointed, or lift my hand against him." (1.Sam. 24.5-6)                                            …

"That it Terry, you got it, as Psalm 150 says:

Let Everything Praise the Lord

This is another painting in mud, LOL.  Not really, it is in fact in acrylic and as far as I know is not of any real place.  It is one of those pictures that one gets placed into the mind after reading a verse, in this case Ezekiel 17:7 (ESV)“And there was another great eagle with great wings and much plumage, and behold, this vine bent its roots toward him and shot forth its branches toward him from the bed where it was planted, that he might water it."I think it was the mention of of the eagles, water and roots that inspired the painting, rather than the meaning of the verse, but looking at it again I can see so much meaning in it. I see water to quench the thirst and the mountains as being unchangeable, and the rock-face being 'The Rock', as well as the obvious meaning of the Eagle's wings, and a lot more besides. I remember that in part it was an experiment also, I was honing my palate-knife skills with the mountains and I had just purchased some texturing paste.  It can't really b…

Dr. Derek P. Blake commented on Dr. Derek P. Blake's blog post Pride
"Of course that cannot be wrong Terry, and this is a different kind of pride, but it also depends on where that pride is focused.  The apostle Paul wrote in his second letter to the Corinthians, verse four:

"I am acting with great boldness toward you; I have great pride in you; I am filled with comfort. In all our affliction, I am overflowing with joy."

Paul was bursting with pride on how the church or Corinth had developed, just as you have pride in your children and grand-kids, just as I take pride in my youngest son at the way he has turned out, I praise God every day for him, he is the apple of my eye.  However in these cases we must give the glory to God.   In 1 Corinthians 15:31 (ESV) Paul says:

"I protest, brothers, by my pride in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die every day!"

In this verse: "Paul boasts of what the risen Jesus has done for him and for others. The resurrection has led to the conversion and baptism of sinners, who were drawn to faith in Christ…"

Dr. Derek P. Blake commented on Pastor Rolf Anderson's blog post Studying the Bible, a Plan and some Guidelines
"Great advice here Rolf.  At the risk of being seen to bang the same old drum, the one thing I would add is about doing your research.  That is easy for me to say because I suppose I am a natural researcher, I always want to get the full picture and find the story behind the Bible passage.  For me, this brings God's word alive and it clarifies what God is doing and saying in His word.
Whilst I believe that God has protected His word in principle, throughout history; we need yo remember that 'man' has been involved in its translation, and re-translation.  Today there are over two hundred versions of the Bible, just in English, they all CANNOT be literally accurate.  From the time of the First Council of Nicaea in 325 AD there have been countess translations and interpretations, and many of them have been produced with vested interests, such as the role of women in, what we call, the church.  So some mistakes have been accidental, some have been purposeful and still others have been beca…"

Ephesians 1:3-6 (NIV)

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves."
