Happiness

If grace is free, can I sin all I want?

Written by Jeremy Myers at :

I hold to radical, outrageous, shocking, scandalous, limitless grace. I believe .

But whenever I teach or write about this sort of grace, it is almost guaranteed that someone will object by saying, “So are you saying that we can just go sin all we want?”

They are referring, of course, to the statement in Romans 6:1 where a person objects to Paul’s teaching about grace in exactly the same way. And Paul’s answer, of course, is “God forbid!”

Can I sin all I want?

In the past, I have responded similarly as Paul. I say “No, of course not!”

Then I go on to explain that just as obedience does nothing to help us earn or keep eternal life, sin does nothing to cause us to lose it or prove we never had it.

The reason God doesn’t want us to sin is because sin damages us.

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

1000 yard shot with a 9mm revolver

Jerry Miculek takes aim at a target 1000 yards downrange.  Ok, so he doesn't hit the balloon but does get close enough to pop it with fragments.  Still, holding over 150 feet above the target, this is amazing.

Admiral William McRaven on How to Change the World

Very inspiring commencement speech. Read more at :

In his commencement address to the University of Texas at Austin’s class of 2014, McRaven himself shared 10 lessons he learned from SEAL training that are crucial for those who want to change the world:

1. Make your bed properly, because if you can’t do the little things right, you will never do the big things right.
2. Find someone to help you paddle.
3. Measure by the size of the heart, not the size of the flippers.
4. Get over being a sugar cookie, and keep moving forward.
5. Don’t be afraid of the circuses.
6. Sometimes you have to slide headfirst.
7. Don’t back down from the sharks.
8. You must be your very best in the darkest moments.
9. When you are up to your neck in cold mud, start singing.
10. Don’t ever, ever ring the bell.

Watch his speech for explanations:

Ted Cruz: Senate Dems, Led By Schumer, Want to ‘Repeal the First Amendment’ This Year

Don't think the 2nd Amendment is the only one under attack. :

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told attendees at a Family Research Council pastors retreat that Democrats wanted to limit free speech through amending the Constitution.
“When you think it can’t get any worse, it does,” Cruz said at the FRC’s Watchmen on the Wall 2014 event in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. “This year, I’m sorry to tell you, the United States Senate is going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment.”

Calling these “perilous, perilous times,” Cruz said Senate Democrats have said they are ready to vote on the amendment, Senate Joint Resolution 19 – “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to contributions and expenditures intended to affect elections.”

“Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has announced the Senate Democrats are scheduling a vote on a constitutional amendment to give Congress the authority to regulate political speech, because elected officials have decided they don’t like it when the citizenry has the temerity to criticize what they’ve done,” he said.

Woman once branded "world's ugliest" delivers an inspirational message

From :

Velasquez suffers from a very rare syndrome that doesn’t allow her to gain weight. In a recent speech the 24 year old discussed the obstacles she overcame since birth. She frankly told about the reactions people have to her appearance and how she chose to not let others define her.

She says she wouldn’t let herself be defined by those who called her a monster. Now she asks you, “What defines who you are as a person?”

Life is too short
