PREACHING THIS MORNING...'Martyrs'. As we reflect on those who have fallen for our country, we need to remember there are those who have fallen for our Lord. And he asks us for that same level of commitment.

A nice piece from CNN on the Shacklett Church of Christ hit hard by the Nashville flood. Thanks to Terry Francis for the link.

LET YOUR father and mother be glad;
let her who bore you rejoice. (Proverbs 23:25)
PREACHING THIS MORNING...'A Mother's Faith' from Matthew 15:21-28. Nothing would stand in the way of this Canaanite woman's faith, not silence, not opposition or even perceived insults. She relied on the grace of Christ.

Open Season on Jesus

Although too frightened to air uncut a South Park episode that spoofed the Muslim prophet Mohammed, Comedy Central has no qualms about targeting the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ:
As part of the network's upfront presentation to advertisers (full slate here), Comedy Central is set to announce "JC," a half-hour show about Christ wanting to escape the shadow of his "powerful but apathetic father" and live a regular life in New York City.

In the show, God is preoccupied with playing video games while Christ, "the ultimate fish out of water," tries to adjust to life in the big city.

Don't worry, though. This will not only be highly funny, but comedy in its purist form:
"In general, comedy in purist form always makes some people uncomfortable," said Comedy Central's head of original programming Kent Alterman.

Oh, that's why it makes people uncomfortable.

I think running scared from threatening Muslims while declaring open season on Jesus and Christians is more like cowardice in its purist form.

TWO @ NEWSBUSTERS...Tim Graham finds that at the Daily Kos it's all about worshiping the creature rather than the Creator:
In so far as all morality is fundamentally based on preservation, betterment and continuation of life, there is no higher morality than environmentalism.

And Ken Shepherd discovers that the Washington Post Book Review finds a book denigrating the Biblical view of Jesus as the Christ "inspiring".

What a great way to celebrate the National Day of Prayer.

WHAT DO CHRISTIANS LIKE? Jonathan Acuff has the answers. (Make sure you take your sense of humor with you.)

PREACHING THIS MORNING...'New Things' a look at the parables of Jesus of the new cloth and the new wineskins in Luke 5:27-39. Our lives cannot be patched--they must be made new.
