Good friends that work for Campus Crusade for Christ have put up a new website I’d like to recommend. While the intended audience for their site are the students of Stephen F. Austin University, there are good basic fundamental questions and answers there.

Visit Everylumberjack.com and look around. I’ve also added a link to their site on the sidebar under Blogs of Faith.

Wiping Israel Off the Map

I forgot where I found this link, but it’s spreading quickly. The United Nations held a Palestinian Appreciation Day and gave thanks for suicide bombers. On the back wall behind Kofi Anna is a map of the Middle East with Israel conspicuously missing.

I didn’t find it at Wizbang, though Jay Tea has a great article about the devoted hatred the Muslims have for Israel. I wasn’t aware that Jerusalem isn’t mentioned in the Quran, but they still lay claim to the Temple Mount as the third holiest site of Islam.

One would think that Israel could turn to the United Nations for assistance in this matter. But the UN has already made its position clear, on countless occasions. In fact, last November 29, the UN held its “Day Of Solidarity With The Palestinian People.” At that event, they held a moment of silence for “all those who have given their lives for the cause of the Palestinian People,” including terrorists, murderers, and suicide bombers. UNICEF sponsors a summer camp named after Wafa Idris, the first female suicide bomber. And they even featured a poster that, literally, showed Israel wiped off the map.

I also didn’t get it from Brutally Honest, who writes:

A minute of silence for those who’ve killed women and children on buses, hotel lobbies, cafeterias, food markets and malls for the cause of the Palestinian people.

Incredible.

And leftists think John Bolton is the problem at the U.N.

I sent this to Sean (frequent commenter, longtime friend, refuses to guest blog), and he replied with all this good commentary:

Well, did you expect any different -?

Consult your playbook:

Ezechiel Chap. 39:

39:8. Behold it cometh, and it is done, saith the Lord God: this is the day whereof I have spoken.
39:9. And the inhabitants shall go forth of the cities of Israel, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, the shields, and the spears, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves and the pikes: and they shall burn them with fire seven years.
39:10. And they shall not bring wood out of the countries, nor cut down out of the forests: for they shall burn the weapons with fire, and shall make a prey of them to whom they had been a prey, and they shall rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord God.

I’m bettin’ on Israel. If I were Iran, I’d be looking to the skies. Every time these guys take it upon themselves to push Israel into the sea, they get whipped. God be praised.

After I asked if I could blog on his behalf, Sean followed up with this. Yeah, I know he had some suggestions for me to follow up on, but lunch is over and I’ve got to get back to work:

Sure, but you may want to quote more in Ezechiel (aka Ezekiel to Protestants?) before my selected lines – , and perhaps compare it to the Israeli war of independence -1948 (five Arab armies), The Suez War 1956 (Egypt), The Six Day War – 1967 (three Arab armies), The 1968 War of Attrition (Egypt), Yom Kippur War 1973, (two Arab Armies), Lebanon Invasion by Israel 1978, 1990 Gulf War (wherein Iraq threw missiles at Israel).

They have been there, done that and won every time. You got to wonder at the thinking of the Arab states on this. Perhaps it is a ploy to keep the people riled up at something other than their totalitarian regimes. A pox on their house. I am developing no pity on the enemies of Israel.

Here’s a great picture –

End Israeli Occupation!

Best Stadium Ever

Our church, Second Baptist, just continues to amaze me. I had such a good time last night – when the Astros made the World Series, the church opened the gym, hung a 30 foot screen on the wall and showed the game live.

And instead of commercials, they were muted and we were treated instead to live color commentary from church members and former Astros Craig Reynolds and Terry Puhl. They took trivia questions and explained the nuances of the game that weren’t covered by the broadcasters.

And at the back of the gym, hot dogs and cracker jacks for a dollar. That beats stadium pricing any day. Fixin’s included all the regular stuff like mustard and ketchup, but also a big helpin’ of chili and cheese if you wanted it.

Yup. Best stadium ever. 🙂

Dengz Photography

An old Singaporean friend wrote to tell me of his travels and his new freelance photography work.

Then Chih Wey’s site is called Dengz Photography. Worth a look; the photography is quite spectacular. If I can convince him to tell us how he came up with the name Dengz, it would answer the first question I have. 🙂

Puppy Needs

A good friend recently told me of the loss of his dog, a long-time family friend. The dog was very old and had developed a tumor; a difficult decision was made to put the dog to sleep.

He’s thinking he needs a new puppy to be his companion, and he’s put a lot of thought into what kind of puppy he wants. Would you join me in praying that he gets a new puppy, especially if your name is Betty?
