I'm doing it. I'm moving to Wordpress. Their templates are hideous (although I found one that's amusing-ly appropriate) and I can't stand CSS, but I want "The Esther Project" and their behind-the-scenes stuff is great.

So it's not all set up yet, but it's not like I'm any kind of professional or anything. Change your bookmarks and links (please) to:


If I ever find time to blog again, it'll be there!

Advent Day 19

I dig the Advent Conspiracy. I don't know when they started this, but I first heard about it a couple years ago. It seems they're gaining momentum. Watch the video, then check 'em out here.

Advent Day 18

Matthew 24:37/But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

So I thought I'd look at the days of Noah. In light of yesterday's post, the beginning of chapter 7 caught my attention:

Genesis 7:1/Then the LORD said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation.

It was "in this generation" that grabbed me. The generation in question is the one that is found
so wicked, they merit complete destruction. A chapter earlier we read, "Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually" (Genesis 6:5).

Every intent was only evil ... continually.

That's pretty bad. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that generation was more displeasing (wicked, evil - choose your loaded adjective) than ours. I'm sure that's where we're headed, since the Lord said the last days would be like the days of Noah, but that's not the point today.

Noah was found righteous before God
in that generation. Moreso, Noah was the only one found righteous before God in that generation. Surrounded by perversion, violence, immorality, and hatred - with no mentor or pastor -Noah maintained his heart before God.

If that's what God expected of His people in the beginning, it's what He expects of His people in the end too. Surrounded by our culture, and in the midst of a deteriorating society, God expects us to be found righteous before Him. He understands our temptations, but He doesn't excuse falling for them.

Noah did it in the middle of
that generation. Shouldn't we be able to do it in ours?
