Re-writing history? It is not just something nations or political groups do.

People re-write their own history:

making some things blacker than they were,

making some things rosier than they were.

“To say ‘Oh I’m no saint’ is acceptable to human pride

but it is

unconscious blasphemy against God.”

Fearfully, wonderfully made is true,

For the lad a-fork a burro’s back,

Who slept last night on a coffee sack,

In some poor, distant, Andes, ranch shack

It’s true for the bluest blood of you,

Aboard a yacht, who passively dine

On caviar, lobster, and old wine,

Always thinking of “me” “my” and “mine.”

Social animals of highest crust,

And dregs of men, smeared with labor’s dust,

Are all alike, all made in fearful ways,

Which ought (everyday) us to amaze.

Do not try to “improve” on preaching with lights, camera, drama.

If preaching is Holy Ghost anointed it CANNOT be improved.

“…it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save…” 1Co 1.21

The Blessed, Triune God-Head can do more in a few seconds

than all the “Hollywood wannabes” can do in a life-time.

You can try to glorify your own little name

“Prop it up” a minute (in your “moment” of fame),

Then turning, limp off life’s stage – increasingly lame.

But God’s name, anciently Past, Future, remains the same.

Personality can be separated from carnality by Christ.

They are not one & the same. The person you struggle the most to accept

could be tolerable (even loved) if/when he (& you) are filled with the Holy Ghost

Jesus was not popular with the church of His day –

“popular Christianity” is an oxymoron.
