More of "You Can't Make This Stuff Up."

If you can't get enough of lovable ole Joel Osteen from his books or on TV, now there's the "Your Best Life Game."

The cynic in me wants to ask, "what happens if two players each claim victory and they have equal faith?  Who will win?"

(H. T. J. V. Moore)


drywall_jesus.gifJesus has appeared again, this time in the drywall of a church in Saraland, Alabama, which had been severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina.


"Many have been healed," said Pastor Ella Roberts. "One young man that belonged here was scheduled to go on dialysis. "The next week, he laid his hand there on the wall on the image, went to the doctor and they said they can't see where, why, how."

Church members say miracles occur when you touch the wall. "From touching that, my eyesight began to clear up completely," said Benita Bogan.

:-) If it wasn't so tragic it would be hilarious. I wonder if Jesus thinks it's funny.

So, that's how you spell Osteen. Hmm. I've been spelling it Olsteen over at my blog for weeks. Oh, well. So much for spell-checker. Maybe I need to lean my head into that "Jesus" wall. Then I could think through current events like Pat Robertson.

This has to be the tee-ball at-bat of all blog posts.

"a unique twist that integrates the game's results into the lives of the players after they finish playing."

I remember a movie called "Alien 2" where a similar process was at work...

30,000 people can't be wrong, can they?

So, where is "Jesus" supposed to be in this picture? I've stared and stared, yet all I can come up with is a bunch of cracks in the wall.

I'm ashamed to admit that I live in Saraland now. :(

You have to have faith for it to work. Pray real hard, turn to II Hezekiah and read a few verses then stare again. If you still can't see it, I'll give you an address where you can send some seed money and I will pray for you. :-)

In all honesty, I think it's wrong for us to sit here and be critical of others. I'm not condoning what these people are saying or doing. Are we any better? If we think about it, we're just as bad as these people. I'm sure Jesus views our actions the same as he views these people's actions. We are not to gossip, criticize, or down-play anyone. If we look deep enough in our hearts, we would know that our ONLY reason for blogging or anything else is to glorify God, and to spread His Gospel to the nations. Is this what we're doing? In my opinion, no.

May God show us the true reason we are here for.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again and again and again:

James… Critical thinking was the foundation of the reformation. We’re living in a time when the average Christian hasn’t gotten past John 3:16, much less the items beyond which we are to press in Hebrews 6:1. Osteen’s success may be likened to John Edwards in the last presidential campaign… charming, great hair, boyish good looks. Not being “critical of others” reminds me of the old saying from W.A. Criswell about 25 years ago. “Preaching today has been reduced to a mild mannered man, speaking to a group of mild mannered people, on how to become more mild mannered.”
It’s not gossip to identify the phonies among us.
