A Love Letter from the Beloved Deciple

One of my favorite passages in the bible is the first paragraph of 1 John.  AsThe Beloved Disciple you read it you feel as if you are sitting there with John as he tells you about a good friend–a man he spent three years of his life with. He also wants you to know he’s is not just a man. His good friend is also the eternal son of God.  There is an authenticity to his words:

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete. 1 John 1:1-4, NIV Read more…

Tebow’s Super Bowl ad not Super

Like most everyone in the country, I was parked in front of a TV last night watching the Super Bowl. I don’t have time to watch a lot football, so I am glad when I get a chance to actually see a whole game, and this was a pretty good one. What’s especially fun about the Super Bowl is that the ads between plays are often more entertaining then the game.  This year, I think the game won. I was pretty disappointed in many of the ads. Most that were supposed to be funny weren’t, and some were downright stupid. I’m sad to say that I was most disappointed in Pam and Tim Tebow’s ad that Focus on the Family sponsored. Read more…

Now “choice” is controversial?

Apparently there is a controversy over an upcoming Super Bowl ad featuring Tim Tebow. Tim is an evangelical Christian, and he’s not shy about his beliefs.  The commercial, which is being paid for by Focus on the Family, has “pro-choice” groups up in arms.

From what I understand, though, the ad simply consists of Tebow’s mother, Pam, telling of how it was suggested that she have an abortion when she was pregnant and very ill, and she decided not to. Now she has a wonderful son, who also happens to be a great football player.  How is that controversial? There won’t be any pictures of an aborted fetus–no video of an abortion procedure. Read more…

Let’s not add to the offense of the Gospel

Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter

As part of my job I work in social media. In fact, I tweet under my company’s account, as well as under my own Twitter account. I have Tweetdeck up during the day, so a never ending stream of tweets come at me four to eight at a time, and I try to tune in when I have a few seconds here and there.

The other day I happened to see a tweet from a guy commenting about a video he had just seen of Ann Coulter on Donny Deutsch’s show “The Big Idea”.  She had apparently dissed Jews, and he, being Jewish, was offended. Read more…
