Psa 14.1 +

Psa 14.1a

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God…” [ also Psa 53.1]

 

Issues are simple when the heart is intense.”

– Samuel Chadwick, /Way to Pentecost/

 

LONG POST – Do you recognize “big band” sounds? Worldly bands, related to the jazz genre & associated with the word “swing” were popular at the devil’s dance floors of yesteryear. If you were not exposed to these (I was, via a friend in the 50’s) these “chirps, rhythms, & swing” have made inroads into church performances. People took it upon themselves to arrange holy hymns, gospel songs, & some Christmas music to be played (brass & other instruments) in very secular ways. I’ve heard worldly sounds in a careful church or two, at a college or two, & yes, a group or more at IHC. Were “swing,” & “big band sounds” only wrong because Glenn Miller or Benny Goodman played them? I think NOT. Church music should glorify God – not remind of past dance bands, against which holy evangelists preached. – eab, 4/1/19 [this is not an April fools post]

“…Ecumenical movement…is really an attach upon truth,

Jesus Christ, & the Bible.”

– Carl McIntire, /Modern..Babel/

 

Live today with a fresh, a greater awareness of two things: 1.) Above you (only God knows how far) is THE glorious, forever “land” of bliss where Light is ever present & God is always praised. 2.) Below you (maybe not all that far) is a pit where darkness is permanent & God never answers prayer.

Psa 53.1a

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God…” [ also Psa 14.1]

 

“…The foundations of freedom are presented in the Bible

 in what it teaches about God & the individual.”

– Carl McIntire, /Modern..Babel/

 

One reason your soul will rise to heaven from earth at death or the return of Christ is Lightness. When you’re saved you get lighter (the burden of sin is gone). You then walk in Light & (/if you will/) get Lighter until you rise to the skies. One reason you will sink (heaven forbid) to hell is the weight of sin. Sin’s load is heavy & gets heavier as it grows (snowballs) in your soul. It will weigh you down. Come to Christ today.
