>Too True

>I’ve often said there is better theology in many Peanuts cartoons than in many “Bible” colleges and seminaries…and in this cartoon a sad commentary on today’s youth is encased in what was, when first penned, rather funny…in the prisons it used to be the young guys were terrified of the old cons; now it is the older guys who are scared spitless of the young guns…why?…they just don’t give a flying rip…and, sadly, that is the status quo for most students…which is why the message of hope will find willing ears if we are gutsy enough to preach the gospel and go for disciples rather than “decisions” brought about by cheesy “invitations” that aren’t laced with the fact that God is angry with sinners, will punish sin, but offers forgiveness because of the atoning death of His Son…

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
