Even after being brutally attacked by Muslims, the Christians remain peaceful and sing praises to God. Amazing!

The Way Home – Movie Review

Posted by on Sep 27, 2010 in Movies, Reviews | 0 comments

The Way Home, starring Dean Cain, is a movie based on a true story. Randy Simpkins is a hard working dad trying to provide for his family, though his wife, Christal, feels he is too focused with his work and doesn’t spend enough quality time with his family. While preparing for a family vacation, their two-year-old son, Joe, goes missing. The movie is about the whole community coming together to help find Joe.

I thought this was an excellent movie. It is definitely a tear jerker for the women, but it is still an excellent movie for men as well. I love how the community almost forms one family when they’re searching for Joe and the love within the Christian community is clearly shown as they pray for the Simpkins family and trust God while the search is going on.

If you get this DVD, I also recommend watching the extras where the cast interacts with the real Simpkins family and they talk about the actual event that happened 7-9 years ago. If you’re looking for a good, Christian movie to watch, I recommend this movie.

I think we all could learn something from Roger.  Even in the midst of great trials, we need to look to Christ at what He has done for us.

Ten Things I Didn’t Understand Before I Was Reformed

Posted by on Sep 11, 2010 in Article | 1 comment

Over at Killer Robot Ninja,  Les has created a list of ten things he didn’t understand before coming to Biblical doctrine.  I’ve gotta say, the list is pretty dead on for myself!  Here’s number 8, you will have to visit the article for the rest of them though.

8. Why We Pray for the Lost

This is something everyone does. We pray for our family and friends to be saved. We say things like “soften their hearts” or “reveal yourself to them”. It’s not something I ever thought about as incosistent with my beliefs, but now I see how strange it was.

If God couldn’t override people’s free will, how could He save them? How could He do anything different than the 100% He was already giving everyone, waiting fo them to make their decision. What does it mean to “soften a heart” other than “do more than You are doing to change their mind”?

Now I can pray fervently for God to override a family member’s sinful will, because I know that it’s their only hope. If God can’t touch our wills, we all go to Hell. God, destroy their will, and MAKE them love You, so they can be saved from Hell!

Why Homeschool?

Posted by on Sep 2, 2010 in Article | 0 comments

Veronica at “A Quiet Heart” has been blogging about why their family have chosen to homeschool and why homeschooling is the best option.  It’s a must read for anyone who is or wants to be a parent someday.

Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4

If our goal is to raise children, and ultimately, adults who walk with God, who love Christ, who rightly obey and apply Scripture, then we cannot, in good conscience, turn over the discipline and training of their minds (which was entrusted to us, as parents) to a system that is, not just innocuously non-Christian, but blatantly anti-Christian.
