Revelation 16:20 And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found.  

The end of revelation 16 reminded me of how my dad and I were playing with a photo on GIMP, and we used Van Gog at its most extreme and it whipped away all of the structures.  All that was left was the sand. The sand led to a background which was pure black. If this happened in real life then it would make me crumble to my knees and pray to our LORD for mercy.   I should pray like this all of the time.

Review Rewrite: The Gospel According to Jesus

 One of my good friends recommended that I rewrite my review for The Gospel According to Jesus.  I hope this review shows a clearer head.   I have kept my other Gospel review in order to maintain my credibility and show that at times one does fall short in writing.  But the big thing is to get up and do it again.  Here is the updated review.   Thank you for your timely criticism, I hope this one is more clear.
The Gospel According to JesusThe Gospel According to Jesus by Chris Seay

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What is the gospel?  I had a hard time coming to terms with this question posed by Chris Seay.  It is a question that sent me on a year and a half long journey and nearly cost me my ability to stay connected in the flux of my momentary sanity.  The book tells of a Gospel that speaks to individuals broken from a rebellion from God, to a place of reconciliation.  This place of reconciliation will be a place where a holy people can regain a peaceful relationship with God.

The Gospel According to Jesus, in short, is a brilliant investigation into the Gospel and a stepping stone to a personal journey and revelation into authentic Christianity. He has provided us fellow pilgrims a resource for our Christian Walk.

What I liked about the book:

* The book was a pleasure to read.

* Good resources were provided in the book.  I loved the prayers.

* It kindles a search into Jesus and the Gospels and makes you want to dig deeper.

What I didn’t like about the book:

* As a primary guide it falls short in Christian Theology because it is works based.

Review: The Fight of Our Lives

William Bennett helped me re-tune to the political spectrum in his book A Century Turns, which was published in 2010.  Now that it is 2011 and Bennett gives room for my fears in the book The Fight For Our Lives.   The Obama administration has exemplified what was wrong with the tenants exposed to me in my 1970’s elementary education, Free To Be You and Me, it allows the Bullies ample room to dictate the rules of the playground. 

But instead of Bullies with large arms and Neanderthal Thoughts, we have a world being run by the terrorists, and our President and Leaders say, "Hey as long as you don't bother us too much, you are free to be the way you see best. Even when this may be a violent notion towards our people."  As if we are asking, "Does it work for you." 

The United States use to reign in the fight for freedom, now we have abandoned our post and let the Barbarous Destructive Theologians free reign to do as they see fit.  This is not good, not good at all.  A bully does not change because they are cuddled and loved.  Bullies change when they know there are consequences to their actions.  This book is a hopeful wake up call to the United States, hopeful in waking the United States up before it is too late.
