Mahomet was not foretold; Jesus Christ was foretold.

Mahomet slew; Jesus Christ caused His own to be slain.

Mahomet forbade reading; the Apostles ordered reading.

You and Mr. “X” (dare I call him “Brother X”?) disagree on “A,” “B,” and most emphatically on “C.” Have you written him off because he disagrees with you? Have you applied to heaven for grace to love him (in spite of HOW mistaken he is)? Let’s pretend for a second – let’s say you both die tonight. Will you be happy to see him in heaven? Or (remember I said pretend above) will you be just as happy to not see him there? Death, Heaven, Hell are more serious than we too commonly think. Amen? Ouch?

The ONE that precedes all the beginnings that we know

The ONE that exceeds all the endings that show

The ONE Who is wider than the widest width of space

The ONE Who is higher than the Apex of the place

The ONE Who is deeper than the Nader itself

The ONE Who includes “lock, stock, barrel” plus shelf

The ONE Who pictures all man’s time at a glance

The ONE Who never has anything happen “by chance”

And the ONE more holy than His own Holy of Holies.

Many of us have a date that’s anchored in our minds.

August 10th was the day my only brother, Keith Roger Bryan, left Zanesville, OH on a train for boot camp. His body returned to Zanesville by rail in a casket in May. He was killed in infantry night maneuvers. (Three different papers – three different “details,” so I, age ten, learned not to trust newspapers 😦 .)  Death is sad at whatever age, but 17 is awfully young. When our son, Lincoln, had a son he asked if I minded if he named him after my brother; so the Keith Bryan some of you know could be Keith R. Bryan II.
