And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king: 2 Chronicles 1:11
I have done quite a bit of reading since my last post; in particular with a very basic, much limited understanding of the comparison of Calvinism and Arminianism. As someone who has been a Christian since childhood, it took me hours upon hours to just basically grasp how my religious views and practices aligned with the two aforementioned schools of thought. At one point I was tempted to accept and eclectic version of the two, however, I am not sure if that works. I will have to revisit this concept later.
As millions of Americans made New Year’s Resolutions, I did as well. While watching a well noted televangelist, no disrespect intended, his message escapes me except for the idea of exercising the power of God in the present, not the past, not the future; but the present. Understanding that He is right now able and we right now have access to the power we need to accomplish any task or face any challenge. That basic concept caused me to revise my resolutions to include less statements of what I can accomplish down the road to a more active thought of what I will or did achieve this day by the grace of God in His Son Jesus’ name.
While surfing the web, I came across this site http://www.think-off.org/ it caught my attention because of the question it posed; “Do the wealthy have an obligation to help the poor?” I think that I am going to ponder this question. Anyway I have added the link under websites on the left side of this page.
