Labor Day Show

Well, we made it.  Despite an amp that was brought in that was supposed to be better than my backup amp, my main amp still being in the shop and almost falling out from heat exhaustion we made it.

I. Had. Fun.


Yeah, my feet were burning in the sun.
The guys and I played Biker Bash 2015 in Granbury, TX right before national acts, Scarlet White, Shonlock, Seventh Day Slumber and Fireflight.

Now, the guys have another bass player auditioning who will be with them in Amarillo, TX for that show and then they decide who they want going forward.

It was fun, I totally expect them to chose the other guy.  I think despite the fun I had, my style is just not quite what they are looking for.  Plus I'm 43 years old and 300 pounds.  I just don't look Rock and Roll anymore.

Hopefully the new guy will rock out and they can move their ministry forward.  Please pray for the continued success of the 7 Days from Sunday ministry.  They are reaching out to people who may not have ever heard the Gospel, or if they have, don't realize you can actually have a GOOD TIME praising God.

Thoughts On The New State Of Marriage

Homosexual marriage is now Federal law.  Or rather the states no longer have the right to accept marriage as only between one man and one woman.

So what's the big deal?

As I've gotten older I realized the "Slippery Slope" argument is very valid.  I couldn't understand it when I was younger, but unfortunately age has proven it to be true.  In the 90's I remember the agument for Civil Unions for gay couples came up.  It was overwealmingly unpopular.  The argument at the tme was that would lead to Gay Marriage.

"No, that's not what we want", was the reply.

Yet, here we are.

"Polygamy will never be an issue, this is not about polygamy and it is an insult to compare the two."

I'm willing to bet money on what is next.  You see, once you change something that has been a religious anchor of Western culture it opens the door for other arguments.

The polygamists can now argue that their rights are being infringed because they cannot marry the two or three men or women they love.  The laws were changed to allow one man and one man to be "Married" or one woman and one woman to be "Married", why limit marriage to only "Two People"?

Don't you love?  Can't love win?  Why are you so Poligaphobic?

You are such a Hater! #H8tr

When the definition of an institution (or the word itself changes) then you can't morally say that it can't change for another group.  The new "Marriages" are not a commitment before God, they are a government contract.  I don't expect polygamy to be the end of this abomination.  Marriage between son and mother?  Marriage between father and daughter?  Marriage beween two brothers?  Why not?  Only those "Nutty Christians" who "Cling to their guns and religion" syand opposed.

The fact the Federal Government is now defining a "Marriage" is exactly why we on the right were so opposed to changing it.

The box is open, Pandora.  There is no closing it.

Miracles

My buddy, KT Cat over at The Scratching Post had a great write up on Miracles and his explanation really hit home:

When I hear atheists talk about there being no proof of God, I feel like I'm talking to a person who has never left Kansas telling me there's no proof that the Pacific Ocean exists.

"Dude, it's right here. I swim in it. I dive in it. One of our sons surfs in it."
"It's all explainable through science. You are only imagining it."
Sigh.
He's right, you can't explain the unexplainable.

I have a friend who was doing work in his attic years ago.  He made a mistake and fell, crashing through the ceiling and to the floor below.  His scull was bashed pretty badly and he wound up in a coma.  Doctors weren't sure he would ever wake up.

Then he did.

He opened his eyes up and began speaking to his friends and family.  He remembered who he was, who they were and was overall in pretty good shape.  He had some problems from the fall, but he was alive and could live normally.

He was a Miracle.

He's had a bad seizure recently. No one's sure what's going on, but everyone is concerned.  I wonder how people will react if God takes him home?  Will they be full of anger, railing against a God that can take a man from his wife and daughters?  Will they understand the Miracle?

The Miracle of a man that could have spent the rest of his life in a coma.  A constant source of regret and missed opportunities; or a man that had his appointment with death delayed for a decade so he could walk among us as a Miracle.

Death is not the end, but the next step in life.  We are non-physical creatures limited by the physical shell we wear every day so it's hard for us to release from our fears.  We fear the unknown and death is the greatest unknown.

But when you believe in Miracles...

The Scapegoat

A buddy of mine was teaching an Old Testament class and got to the part about the "Scapegoat".  We were talking about it and came up with a vision of a Far Side cartoon where the scapegoat comes back.

Here is my shameless ripoff of The Far Side.

Skillet - Sick Of It

I'm a fan of the band Skillet.  Not only do they just make some great rock songs they are also Christian.



I'm proud to say my daughter Sadie, THE WIFE and I are all unofficial Panheads.

What Will You Do?

Judges 6:13-14

“But Sir,” Gideon replied, “if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our fathers told us about when they said ‘Did the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and put us into the hand of Midian.”

The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”

Things don’t work out the way we expect them to, but God is in control. Furthermore, he has placed us here to hold His word and His laws in place. If we fail, we have only ourselves to blame.

The Devil Is Real And He Fights Dirty



Don't believe it, read for yourself. Why do they focus on Chrisitanity over other religions? Thing on it.
