"Hence that dread and amazement with which as Scripture uniformly relates, holy men were struck and overwhelmed whenever they beheld the presence of God... men are never duly touched and impressed with a conviction of their insignificance, until they have contrasted themselves with the majesty of God."
~ John Calvin

Worth the ten minutes. I'm not Baptist but James White is a great apologist for the Christian faith. Here he defends the doctrines of grace in his closing remarks of a debate he was in. Watch it and be blessed. I've posted this before but now is your second chance.

Sarah Palin as Vice President would, unfortunately, be an inspiration to Christian feminists everywhere. Now Christians, who would not want her preaching at the pulpit, are praying to have her over the Pentagon and Presidency. I am not for Obama but I am not arranging a party to celebrate the devaluing and mocking of the vital role of motherhood. Is this really a great role model for Christian mothers? This is a mother whose fifth child was recently born with a serious issue, Down Syndrome, and then she goes back to the job of Governor within days of the birth?
Well at least her eldest unwed daughter, now pregnant with her own daughter, can hold Sarah's baby while Sarah poses for political photo-ops with John McCain. When dad and mom both work full-time the children are going to be neglected. No one can be a mother like a mother. Will her children get the attention and mothering they need if she is Vice President of the United States of America? It says in Isaiah 3:12 "My people—infants are their oppressors, and women rule over them." This is a sign of judgment and not progression. Yea, she's pro-life but I would also like her to be pro-family - I would also like her not to sacrifice her family on the altar of her career.
Watch this clip from CNN: "Palin and the Pulpits" - Go Voddie Go! God give us more principled pastors rather than political pundits.

There is one quote not mentioned on the video when they wanted to burn Polycarp alive by nailing him to a stake because of his refusal to deny Christ. Rather than allowing himself to be nailed to the stake he told his captors:
- "Let me be as I am. He that granted me to endure the fire will grant me also to remain at the fire unmoved, without being secured with nails."
