Jim I really enjoyed your last 2 blogs. I was saved sept 4th 2011 after moving to Lexington Tn. Leading up to this time I was in Rogers Ar trying to find a church, and was unable to find one where I felt God. I came to Lexington for a Revival with my sister. Durring the revial and felt something pulling me, I felt like I was being pulled apart. I went back to Rogers and had this pull to Lexington (my sister lives here) I called her and told her to get me a house. I have my father living with me. He was pushing me, and I feel now God was pushing him. As soon as we moved here and I started going to church, God started working on me again, and let me to the alter. I do not remember walkingto the altar, all I knew is I was there and on my knees, and praying for God to please help me. I felt him touch the top of my head. It was the most awesome day of my life. I never realized God talks to us in that sweet soft voice, until I heard his voice for myself. It is the most awesome thing to get a message from him an answer to ur prayers. Thank you for the blogs.

Well said Jim,
This is such a relevant message today. The current epidemic of moral relativism is really something that can only function superficially in theory. When you take a close look at the infinate contradictions to the belief that just “believing in something” is enough, or that “all god’s are the same God,” it really doesn’t play out. Such new age universalism is a blatant breaking of the 1st and 2nd Commandments that state:
1 – You shall have no other god’s before Me.
2 – You shall not make for yourself a graven image. [That is: you shall not make an image of God in your mind that is different than who God says He is in the Bible. And if you’ve ever made a God to suit yourself, one that doesn’t have a narrow path and sacrifice, and tolerates sin, than you have created a god in your own image. It’s called idolatry]
Thanks Jim, God bless

Gracious father Jim :)
Thx for suggesting your video blogs and sorry for taking so long..
I am on the net via a German satellite and my access is limited, but decided on this 34th birthday of mine to give myself the birthday gift listen to your advice.
Regarding as long I believe in something I sometimes believe in my (blood-related) grand-parents… and I try to follow their and other’s abstract advices that appear in my life’s various intersections. The executive decision maker is thus in most cases my own heart. However, I deny that my heart is Jesus, and my advisors, in whom I believe, are more than one way. But I am a believer and I believe in the world. I also introduce my religious status as a believing Christian. All that to say, I am sorry to hear that you disapprove my Christianity, father.
Please join my 2012 Euro French CMVC tour, it will show you my trust in God. I would love to have you joining me, for many reasons!
I wish you a nice weekend,

Thanks for your comment Robert!
I am glad you are thinking about these things and asking yourself the question: ” who gets to make the rules. Us or God?”
I believe God dose, and that he tells us what the truth is in his word: the bible.
If your ideas superseed Gods authoritative word than you are saying that you know better than God. If that sits well with you, then you better pray that God reveals himself to you through his word and read it!
