It’s the Lord’s Day!

Go to church today not merely as a spectator or to be edified (being edified is a good thing) but to edify others!

1 Corinthians 14 has many things in the chapter that is debated by Christians.  But there’s no debate about what 1 Corinthians 14:12 states:

So also you, since you are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek to abound for the edification of the church.

Seek to abound in your spiritual gift and service to edify the church!

Don’t forget It’s okay to be tired after Church on Sunday!  It’s better to to serve the Lord spilling out all of your guts than to sit there do nothing and rust!

This is my fun read while on Vacation.  Because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy reading…

Dwayne McDuffie.  Batman: Blink. New York, NY: DC Comics, February 24th 2015. 168 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This volume is a reprint of some older Batman issues (the original work was not in 2015).  This book collecting Legends of the Dark Knight issues 156-158 and Action Comics 847 and presents two story concerning a blind character name Lee Hyland.  Originally I wasn’t going to read this book since it looks like “90s stuff” but it turned out to be better than I anticipated.

I have known of this individual Keith Rice for some time now, probably for nearly 15 years.  He use to run a blog on a website that once existed called Xanga.  In what follows below is his audio recording and when available the power point presentation and handouts of his lectures for his Sunday school on Presuppositional apologetics.  These were taught during the summer of 2018 at Woodland Christian Church.

Check it out below!

As I mentioned earlier I’m on vacation.  Here’s a work I finished!

Arthur Herman. 1917: Lenin, Wilson, and the Birth of the New World Disorder.  New York, NY: Harper, November 28th 2017. 448 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This book is on both Woodrow Wilson and Vladimir Lenin.  At first one might think these men are diametrically different from one another but the author Arthur Herman successfully show reader how much the two of them are alike and how both men shaped what the twentieth century would be like.  A fascinating historical book even for those who know about both men since this work is still profitable for readers to see the comparison and contrast of the two men and also the timeline of both their lives.  I agree with the author’s thesis that these two men shaped much of the Twentieth Century.  I learned a lot from this book.

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading some few months ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Colossians 1:4.  Here is my translation:

ELABORATION 4 ἀκούσαντες τὴν πίστιν ὑμῶν ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ καὶ τὴν ἀγάπην ἣν
Hearing your faith in Christ Jesus and the love which

ἔχετε
you have

BULLET εἰς πάντας τοὺς ἁγίους”
for all the saints

Here are some observations:

I’ve been on vacation this week with my family.  I’ll be posting more book reviews as a result of this break from ministry.

Arlene Pellicane. Parents Rising: 8 Strategies for Raising Kids Who Love God, Respect Authority, and Value What’s Right by Arlene Pellicane.  Chicago, IL: Moody Publishing, April 3rd, 2017. 176 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a Christian book on parenting.  The author is Arlene Pellicane who is a public speaker on Christian parenting and she is a frequent guest on various radio show interviews such as Fox & Friends, Focus on the Family, and The 700 Club.  I admit I’m frequently on guard with “pop Christian” self-help sort of books and resources and my guard was up reading this book.  Nevertheless I did find this book useful.
