Psalm 143:12 ->Also, David is possibly referring to enemies that are among God's people

Proverbs 10:2 ->Which is why the government and many huge industries are in such trouble.

Proverbs 10:12 ->Stirs up new strife, unnecessary conflict. It's not hatred to respond or to deal with evil.

Galatians 2:11 ->Correcting others can be for their benefit, and should be. Peter was condemned for his actions, he was wrong. Paul did right be correcting him.

1 Peter 1:5 ->Protected, not by our strength, nor our combined efforts, nor politics, but by God!

Quote: "A man would do well to carry a pencil in his pocket, and write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable, and should be secured, because they seldom return." -Francis Bacon

Thought #1: "If you don't write it down, it never happened." -Caroline Ryan, Tom Clancy's novels.

Thought #2: "I wrote them down so I wouldn't have to remember." -Henry Jones, Sr. from one of the greatest movie trilogies known. (nuke the fridge doesn't count)

Thought #3: Elton Trueblood, one of the better preachers of the 20th Century, made it a habit to carry 3x5 index cards around for this purpose. He was able through this method to write a book a year, using only a few dedicated weeks to sort through the cards and connect the thoughts.

Thought #4: I'm going to work on this.
Moving toward the Horizon,

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
