"Without a biblical worldview, all the great teaching goes in one ear and out the other. There are no intellectual pegs in the mind of the individual to hang these truths on. So they just pass through. They don't stick. They don't make a difference."

Okay, here's one-

Certainly nothing offends us more rudely than this doctrine of original sin. And yet without this mystery, the most incomprehensible of all, we are incomprehensible to ourselves.

CS Lewis said in MERE CHRISTIANITY (I think I'm paraphrasing slightly) that denying God (or not believing in God) is like sawing off the branch you're sitting on!
Lewis wrote some extraordinary theological works (far outnumbering his 7 Narnia books), and had a true gift for analogy - expressing profound truth in flawless metaphors.
Nard, your firm faith & humility are not going unnoticed.

If you haven't watched Zeitgeist - The Movie yet, here is another little bit that might make you think twice about religion in general. Since every religion thinks it is the only one of real authority to set the rules by which we should all live, be very careful what you ask for, as you may get it:

You ever think of taking your sorrowfully anti-religious propaganda and state it as so? This was to be a posting of prayer for Ray Bradbury, I assume. Can't you accept such a posting, but rather pick all the nonsense you can find and blurt it into this posting? You complain about other religions being an authority, yet you somewhat set yourself up as an authority of sorts by trying to make us believe you understand really what's going on. You think we are all so stupid to fall for that?

Okay, I watched Zeitgeist - The Movie. It started out okay, went into the anti-Christian mode I used on Christians back in the 70's (before I became one), and then turned into shades of Michael Moore, if he was really, really paranoid.

I think it is funny how it blasts conservative Christian views of the "end times" and then ends by proclaiming the very same things they have been claiming for years.

We should perhaps have another thread for religious discussion and keep it there. Keep it out of this one, which is strictly a prayer thread, and to a reasonable degree from others which are not about religion.

..................Asking all Christian believers who
..............have been influenced by or simply enjoy reading
..........Ray Bradbury...for PRAYER!

If you are one, asking here that when possible there would be time of prayer to our heavenly Father on behalf of Ray Bradbury; asking that God's Spirit open the eyes of Bradbury's heart to the reality of the gift of Grace, and the unmeasurable promise of the life God first intended before he even made the stars.

(look over: Ephesians chapter 1 verses 3-5)

....In 2nd Corinthians, Chapter 5, verse 18, it reads:
"All this newness of life is from God, who brought us back to himself through what Christ did. And God has given us the task of reconciling people to him."



......~I've reposted this REQUEST, since it seemed to have gotten bogged-down
with other postings.

Thanks to everyone on this prayer request!

Define "vacation." I've been so busy my brain is on vacation!

If anything, that's a good use of the word "vacation" in a sentence.

Vacation is a good word.

Keep the prayers coming.

yeah, that does have a nice ring to it.

Another digression, eh?
Well, as for me, I'd much prefer steady employment to vacation right now.

(For what it's worth, I prefer the British "on holiday" to our "on vacation"; the former sounds jolly, the latter sounds like leaving a void.)
