There’s probably hundreds of videos like this on Youtube of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines coming back home surprising their loved ones.

No matter how many times you may see this, I think it has a way of moving you; to see a young love one loss all sense of their surrounding, all their dreams come true, all their worries finally ended, their loved one gone from them being now present…their father is before them and nothing else matters as they run to embrace the father they loved and missed…

It makes me think about this worship song and our relationship with God…

One day I will be before the throne of God, which is made possible because of what Jesus has done…one day you will before the Father too and the question is whether you would long for His presence or be utter terror in your sins…

Fortunately, God has sent His Son to die for our sins…to redeem us, and give us eternal life by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.  God did not just give us eternal life; He has also work through the Spirit in regenerating those who are saved, in the process of forming our will to love Him and anticipate Him one day…

In this day and age of easy dissemination of false information, it behooves of us to check what we hear and see

That blog post is a good reminder.

Lila Rose, a prolife advocate and a rising young prolife leader, has exposed Planned Parenthood illegal activities through Project Mona Lisa.

Sadly, Youtube has been censoring the videos of her organization, Live Action.  As of to date, they have banned eight of her videos.

Jill Stanek’s commentary over at World Net Daily is insightful.  It can be read over here: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=104699

An except:

YouTube allows almost any surgery video imaginable, like gastric bypass, gallbladder removal, toe amputation, appendectomy and brain tumor removal, and gross-out body parts videos like a buttock fecal fistula or peritoneal cancer – but not abortion.

Neither does YouTube have a problem with videos pertaining to the female anatomy like mastectomies, breast augmentations, hysterectomies or even baby deliveries – but not abortion, unless it is in the form of bloodless illustrations.

YouTube also seems to go out of its way to protect the abortion industry, particularly Planned Parenthood.

To date, YouTube has removed eight videos posted by Lila Rose and Live Action Films shot undercover at Planned Parenthoods in several states. In them Lila posed as a 13-year-old impregnated by her 31-year-old “boyfriend.” Videos show staffers trying to help cover up the illegal statutory rape and even offering to help Lila circumvent parental consent laws.

Live Action Films tried ever harder to abide by YouTube’s rule of maintaining privacy as well as its vague censorship catch-all: “If a video is particularly graphic or disturbing, it should be balanced with additional context and information.”

But it’s not only Planned Parenthood YouTube protects. It also provides cover-up for run-of-the-abortion-mill skanks.

Take Michigan late-term abortionist Alberto Hodari. Last year Citizens for a Pro-life Society filmed video of garbage retrieved from two of his dumpsters.

YouTube has videos posted of “the world’s biggest garbage dump” in the center of the Pacific Ocean as well as of a boy living in a huge garbage dump in India. YouTube even has video posted of a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news team following dumpster divers on the hunt for food.

But CPLS’s video was of preborn human garbage Hodari’s staff illegally tossed, and for which Hodari was later fined by authorities, corroborating the video’s authenticity, or “context.” The video was up 10 months and received 25,000 views before being inexplicably removed.

YouTube allows graphic social justice videos pertaining to the Holocaust, slavery, the civil rights movement, Darfur and child sex trafficking. It allows graphic videos of wars throughout history.

But abortion, no.

As Monica Miller, head of CPLS told me, “How are you going to talk about abortion without it being disturbing? YouTube is a primary way we can compete in the United States with pro-abortion propaganda and have a voice.”

But social engineers at YouTube don’t want pro-lifers to have a visual voice.

Obama is like God?

As I posted yesterday, Obama invoke Jesus name more than Bush did

You wouldn’t find that out from the mainstream media

Speaking of mainstream media, here’s an interesting video clip of a journalist saying Obama is like God, and Chris Matthews agreeing with a “Yeah”

I have to give one warning that there is one f-word cuss word in this video.

I post it up for the purpose to show how ignorant the average Americans can be. 

As Christians, we ought to be informed and not be ignorant of the world around us.

I don’t really know how many people are debating on apologetics on YouTube since I’m not a regular follower of that community, though I do know one of the incoming links comes from YouTube from a Christian called AntiPelagian who has a collection of videos on apologetic related issues as well as politics. I only watched his video responses but he was using a lot of terminology and ideas that should immediately be familar to the presuppositionalist.

I only write this because several months ago I wrote about the possibility of using YouTube for outreach opportunities and it’s encouraging to know that some people are doing so. I hope there will be more Christians making impacts in whatever sphere God has placed them in.

AntiPelagian also writes a blog on Xanga.

Tuesday’s GOP YOutube/CNN Sponsored Debate have been warned by Conservative Blogger Hugh Hewitt as being dangerous back on July 26th, 2007 (concerned of the lack of reasoned and informed discussion), which was followed by a heated discussion this past Tuesday with Steve Grove, director of news and politics for YouTube  that was very revealing.

Now that the debate is over, concern of neutrality of those who ask questions are exposed.

Some of these guys were actually lying about who they were.

As always, Michelle Malkin’s blog does a good job of expose of some of these questioners…from CAIR intern, gay Republican general, etc…

Now, I’m not against people who are Democrats asking tough questions to Republicans; I wish the other way could also occur (like when the Democrats turned down Fox for a debate); my post is specifically about the deception that was involved by these questioners.

I’ve read one-liners like:

Even military.com’s newsletter, Military Insider jumped in titleling their video, “Iraqi Cadets Can’t do Jumping Jacks. ” 

Disconcerting as the video as it is, even more disconcerting is the fact that to some, it only verifies their conviction that we’ve lost the war. Though as you will see below there’s a parallel in principle of coordinating exercise and coordinating combat, I find the real humor is if someone actually used this video as premise of their argument (I doubt it but I wouldn’t be surprised if there was at least one- there’s alway one.)

But really the first thing I thought of though when I watched this video was boot camp. I flashbacked to the numerous times DI’s were yelling at us for not doing things in sync during PT. I thought to myself, “Now I know why they got so mad at us,” because we look stupid, and it’s good training.

Although some might think about the zombie-like robot-stupid killing-machine mentality of the military, I really think there’s two benfits to doing jumping jacks in sync.

First point is that coordinated exercises is another oppurtunity to become one.  In combat, being in sync and coordinated is key. If you can’t even do coordinated jumping jacks with ten people, what about a platoon? What about a company? If 10 people can’t do the same thing at the same time, why expect the same 10 to do different things, in a coordinated way, at the same time?

“My argument can only be taken so far though. Obviously a group of construction workers would be coordinated in making a parking lot, but would less coordinated doing surgery. It takes practice. But at the same time, the more a group of people become one, the more quickly the group learns to adapt and overcome different tasks. As my heavy-hat, former SSgt Hernandez said, “The platoon just clicks.” That’s the essence of boot camp. Learning that the key to succeeding and surviving involves everyone- you’re weak people, you’re slow people, you’re strong people, you’re fast people– the point is they’re all you’re people. It’s very much like how the Christian body succeeds and grows:

“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ,  from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.”
Ephesians 4:11-16

Success then is in the unity of the different parts, and in that unity the group will be able to overcome all.

My second point is of course survival. In a school of fish, in a herd of caribou, the one that decides to run in a different direction, or stick out in any way is the one that gets killed. Why make the job of a sniper easier? Don’t stick out by looking different.

Reiteraing what I said earlier, though it’s a useful tool for training, jumping jacks certainly is not a reliable measurement of how the war is going.

Laugh at the video, but don’t laugh too hard. Seriously.

Have anyone ever heard of William Wilberforce?

Among many Christians whom I view as my hero, William Wilberforce is one of those I esteem highly

And now there’s a movie about his life called ‘AMAZING GRACE’! Its already out in theatre…I need to go see it!

The trailer at this Youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqlcjI85gaY&eurl=

And a Review: http://www.americanvision.org/articlearchive2007/02-23-07.asp , with an excerpt:

“Wilberforce, a member of the English parliament in the 18th century, was a committed Christian who did NOT believe his faith was simply a private matter. Rather, he applied his biblical worldview to the realm of politics and dedicated 30 years of his life to end the slave trade in the British empire. The movie is appropriately called Amazing Grace because Wilberforce was a contemporary and close friend of former slave trader John Newton. Newton’s dramatic conversion led him to write one of the most beloved hymns of all time—Amazing Grace. It is clear that God sovereignly ordained for the lives of Newton and Wilberforce to intersect and fulfill his plan for history.

Shortly after his conversion, the movie portrays Wilberforce confronted with what he perceives to be two mutually exclusive choices—a life of politics or a life of Christian service. A fellow Christian correctly reminds Wilberforce that he can do both. Real Christianity is not living a socially-irrelevant life while waiting for the “Rapture.” Real Christianity is a life dedicated to advancing the heart-changing and nation-transforming power of the Gospel. It’s being obedient to the Great Commission by making disciples and teaching them to obey all of the Bible. It is applying all of the Bible to all areas of life—areas such as politics, business, law, economics, arts, sciences, education, medicine, and more.”

William Wilberforce has done alot to end the African Slave Trade…

Less known but equally important is his role as a politician who with his missionary friend William Carrey (another hero of mine and interesting in his own right) whom both fought against pro-Imperialists and the East India Company to eventually end the legality of the Caste System as well. 

Being a Christian, being political and concern about the Lordship of Christ in all spheres of life, Wilberforce’s life story is a great example of Christ power in individuals to change the world around us.  I sometime am concern with the cultural retreat-ism prevalent among some quarters of American Christianity…Christ saves us not just to wait here as if we are waiting for the dentist, with nothing to do and being idle…we are called to do good works, to advance His Kingdom, love our neighbors, and as the central focus, to share the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST, who died to save sinners…

I was watching the YouTube staff 2006 highlights. One of the top YouTube vidoes was about YouTubers, featuring clips of other YouTubers. I got the sense that YouTube has grown a large and diverse community of people that record blog-like video clips.

Though I maybe kind of slow noticing (since apparently the Times did a feature about YouTubers), but this is another venue of outreach to non-believers in the areas of debate, evangelism, apologetics, or even theology (if talking to other Christians). If no Christians has realized this yet, I hope this post may spur some Christians to outreach to the YouTube community.

I sense a real oppurtunity for Christians to make waves. There are many Christian blogs now, however I haven’t come across any prominent Christian YouTubers. I really think the first few Christian YouTubers that attempt to reach out, respond to other YouTube videos, and debate in apologetics and doctrine will be prominent. Right now, Christian blogs such as this one are attempting to carve itself an audience, because of the massive amount of blogs available to read by online surfers.

YouTube is a golden oppurtunity to gather an audience.

All you need is a good internet connection and a webcam.
