I Pity the Fool
1 Samuel 16:7
The foolish are always criticizing us for the way we look and the things that we do. And a lot of times we are foolish enough to listen to them and get mad. People are always coming up to us and insulting our looks and what our houses look like and things like that. Instead of getting mad and fighting back, the wise person would just pray for whoever the person is. They know that it is just a foolish person who doesn't know how to look at the heart and see the real person you our. Don't even worry if what they say is true. GOD made you perfect and HE sees you as perfect. HE looks at the inside while the foolish all around us look on the outside. Don't lose your head and become foolish; GOD is with you.
GOD bless you all. Peace be with you.

Love Your Enemies
... Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you...
In the Bible it says to love your enemies. Almost every Christian has heard this but how many follow it? The problem is that many Christians probably push this aside because they can't think of a way to love their enemies beyond material things. Christians don't relize that they express hate to many non Christians by treating them wrongly and by showing them no respect. Even celeberties and other famous people get hated on because they are not Christians.
Well now I ask all you Christians who may be guilty of this: What good will it do to hate people because they don't have JESUS as their savior. It will probably send them after Christians because of how we hate and disrespect. It will probably push them away from GOD and to hell, too. For all of thoose Christians who have truoble with this, what better thing can you do for your enemies then pray for them instead of hate them. Only GOD can save people- we can just help out. But if we pray that GOD helps our enemies and gives them a better understanding, then GOD will probably reveal Himself to them. And that will show true love to our enemies and to JESUS, for we obeyed HIM.
God bless you all! Peace.

Introduction: For many of you who don't know who the Newsboys are, they are an experienced Christian rock/pop band who's origins go all the way to Australia where the band was formed. They have had 12 albums and they are widely popular around the world. Many consider them to be one of the best Christian bands of all time.
The Review: Recently, the Newsboys released their newest album (on October 30, 2006) titled simply, "Go." I purchased this CD recently and I thought I should tell you what I think of it because it was created by my favorite band. For people who haven't followed the Newsboys, their recent albums were worship CD's, different from their normal pop/rock routine. In Go, the Newsboys go back to their rock/pop and it sounds great. Songs like Wherever We Go, Go, Something beautiful, The Mission, I Am Free and more deliver this sound and it returns well to what they are known for. Since the Newsboys are also known for their awesome worship songs, you won't be disappointed to know that they have this in their album too. It's hard to be exact on this but songs like In Wonder and Gonna Be Alright are wonderful worship songs. In this CD, the Newsboys put in a mixture of almost everything they have done and even some new things (they left out the disco.) They have rock, pop, worship, and even some Australian rap. Yes, in Your Love Is Better Than Live, Peter Furler raps about GOD'S love and how things can be hard to understand, only being understandable through GOD'S eyes. This CD focuses on a theme that the Newsboys say came randomly. The theme is going out and making disciples of people who might not know JESUS. You can hear this in songs Go, The Mission, and more. Plus, they have a bonus CD that comes with a DVD "Behind the Band" and three bonus songs. The Songs are I Am Free (Live), Something To Believe In, and City To City (which also goes with the theme of the CD.) I don't know why the last two aren't even songs in the CD, but you can bet that this CD will leave you fulfilled. It is one of my favorite Newsboys CD's and it is filled with some instant hits. Some highlights are: Wherever We Go, Go, Something beautiful, The Mission, In Wonder, Your Love is Better Than Life, I Am Free (Live and normal), Secret Kingdom (which sounds kind of like Breakfast- It's a fan service), Gonna Be Alright, and all of the bonus songs in the special edition. That's almost all the songs! There's 11 tracks (14 in the bonus edition) and you won't be disappointed if you buy this CD. It is one of the best CD's of 2006. Now, I'm not a really good review writer, but I have to spread the message to buy this CD! Good job Newsboys!

A Little Break... Sorry
GOD bless U.
(P.S. My next post is probably going to be a CD review for my favorite band's newest album. Get ready for the news in my review of "NewsboysGo!" I'll try to post it soon- but right now, there's a Bible movie on TV. Very powerful. Hang in there GOD's children.)

1. Why did God send His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins?
2. Who is responsible for killing Jesus Christ?
3. Why does Jesus dying on the cross save us from our sin?
I gave you this test because it suprises me how much some people, even Christians, don't know about the death of Jesus. Please comment your answers and then come and read the true answers to see if you got them right.
1. Our GOD is perfect. We can't go to heaven and see HIM if we are imperfect. The Bible says that all have sinned, making all imperfect. So, that means that if you sin, you can never see GOD. Well, GOD sent JESUS to be the perfect sacrafice for our sins. f we ask GOD for forgiveness and confess and believe JESUS died for our sins, then we will be washed in the blood of JESUS and GOD will see us as perfect.
2. You and I are responsible for killing JESUS CHRIST. Many might think it was a mob of people, Pontus Pilot, or even Santan himself. But the truth is, we are guilty of killing JESUS CHRIST. JESUS had many chances to escape from death, but if HE wouldn't have died, then we could never go to heaven because of our sin. The bottom line is: If we hadn't sinned in the first place, then JESUS wouldn't have had to die.
3. It saves us because JESUS died in our place. Back in the Old Testament days, if someone sinned, they had to make a sacrafice with an animal. Well JESUS (the Lamb) was the ultimate sacrafice to everyone! We just have to ask for fogiveness and believe HE died for us.
Well, I bet some people didn't get what they expected. I know number two probably tripped up alot of people. You might want to look up the death of JESUS to see where I got some of this. It's kind of funny that I'm talking about JESUS' death so close to HIS birth, but don't worry, I'll be on that topic soon. If you have any questions, comments, answers, typos, or anything more, please leave a comment. The comment bar should be right under this post. Just double click it if you don't know how. GOD bless U all! Peace be with you! Merry Christmas! Hammer out.
