C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

Happy Thanksgiving, 2008

Just wanted to say, more than the food and the day off of work, ponder something that you are truly thankful for today. Share it with family and friends, share it with God, and remember it.

Lol.

Don't feel sorry. You didn't make me sick. The world's violence makes me sick. Religion makes me sick.

And the idea of God makes me sick to the very core.

My name is Beast, I cry...a lot...about things that are out of my control. I let the world around me affect me to the point that it makes me sick and then I complain to everyone about it. I haven't been happy since...well since...I left the church, but that just makes me sad again...

Beast, you sound like the heroine in a romance novel. The world is constantly against you and you're just so much smarter than everyone else and that makes them jealous. Oh, woe is you.

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
