Everything you ever wanted to know about Thanksgiving in America. Perhaps there is something here that you did not know. In any case it is good to take time to not only thank God for all His blessings to us today but to remember all of His blessings toward our nation in the past.

 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Do Not Deceive Yourself


This was worth reposting from The Berean

(14) Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity. (15) But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience. Luke 8:14-15

Growth requires an honest and noble heart. We deceive ourselves through rationalizations and justifications, allowing our appetites to overwhelm what we know is true. Sin engulfs the mind with a cloud of alibis and cover-ups to hide from ourselves the wrongness of what we do. Sin promotes twisting and distorting of truth. We reason, “This isn’t so bad”; “I’ll do it just one more time”; “I’m too weak. God will just have to take me as I am”; “God will just have to do it for me.” We have all reasoned ourselves into transgressing.

Have we been deceived into thinking of sin only in the sense of breaking one of the Ten Commandments? While sin is the transgression of the law (I John 3:4), its biblical usage is much broader. When we fail to think of sin in its broader sense, we stumble into a trap. It is far better to think of sin as falling short of the glory of God. The central concept of sin is failure—failure to live up to a standard, God Himself. The glory of God includes His attitudes, intents, and His very thinking processes, all of which produce the way He lives. For us to fall short in any of these areas is missing the mark—sin.

We are deceived, lured into actually transgressing, through neglect, carelessness, laziness, irresponsibility, ignorance, bull-headedness, fear, shortsightedness, and ingratitude for forgiveness and the awesome potential that God has freely and graciously handed to us on a golden platter of grace. We are detoured from progress to holiness and are enticed into sin by failing to see God and by not considering seriously the subtle influences on the fringes of actual transgression of the law. At the foundation of both spiritual and physical health is how we think and what we think about.

James 1:13-16 confirms this:

Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.

The way to stop sin, as well as to improve health, is to change our thinking. Between what God does and what we should do, we can do it. This is real conversion!

Food Stamp Recipients Sue Over Work Requirements


The food stamp program has only very modest work requirements, which most states are not currently implementing.

To think that expecting someone to actually EARN money would be considered unfair by those who get money for doing nothing. The bible even says if a MAN does not work he shouldn’t eat. But in America it is perfectly acceptable for a man to be lazy and do nothing and expect his neighbors to give him a hand-out. He makes no effort to elevate his own circumstances but instead sues to keep the freebies coming.

Nothing more needs to be said on this. Christians are commanded to now bow down to any other God. I am the Lord thy God you shall have no other God before me. Thus saith the Lord.
