Rotten-Tomatoes

I love movies.

As a lover of movies, I have come to appreciate a website called “rottentomatoes.com.” This is a site that basically collects movie reviews from critics all over the country, determines whether each review is “positive” or “negative,” and then assigns each movie a certain percentage of “freshness” or “rottenness.”

I got a new chair for my office this week!

You might be asking, “Why did you need a new chair for your office?”

I’m glad you asked.

U-Turn Encouraged

U-Turn-Sign

One of the most confusing decisions for a driver is whether or not it is legal to make a U-turn at any given intersection.

Inform, Not Enforce?

First things first: I’m a rule-follower.

This doesn’t mean that I ALWAYS follow the rules (just ask my Mom), but I’m a rule-follower by nature. I respect authority, obey rules/laws, and absolutely HATE to be “in trouble” with anyone.

So, keep that in mind as you read this article…

Tootsie Rolls??

I joined a gym this past week. I have never attempted to work out at a gym by myself for any extended period of time, but I felt like it was time to get in better shape so that I can walk my girls down the aisle instead of being carried by them.

For John Wesley

Brooke called me crying on Monday.

I knew that something was wrong as she tried to talk through the tears. I braced myself for what was certainly going to be bad news. As she spoke, she told me that the young son of some dear friends of ours in Northport, AL had been tragically killed in an automobile accident that morning on the way to school.

THE BACK-TO-SCHOOL BLUES

Almost all of our teens have gone back to school at this point, and I think it would be safe to say that most of them are not especially happy about it.

Remind Me Oh Lord of the Price that was Paid

They bound His hands, and they took Him captive. They beat Him, and they spat on Him. They slapped Him, and they plucked the hairs of His beard from His face. They put a crown of thorns on His head, and they whipped Him. They put a robe on His back and yelled, “Hail the King of the Jews.” They nailed Him to the cross, and they killed the Son of God.

“You busted his lip!”

“Look at what you did to him!”

“Good work guys, good work! Way to go!”

“This is horrible.”

“Yeah, the police grabbed him. He’s an older doctor. He wouldn’t get off the plane, so they forced him off.”

These are direct quotes of some of the things that were said by other passengers as Dr. David Dao was literally dragged from his seat on an overbooked United Airlines flight this past Sunday.

LOOPHOLE HUNTERS - Episode Two: Relationships (Part One)

Written by Jeremy Pate. Posted in Blog.

In this series, we are taking a look at some of the ways in which we, as Christians, hunt for loopholes in God’s Word. “Loophole Hunting” is when we take a clearly communicated command from God – one that was intended to be taken into the depths of our hearts and to change our lives - and we find a “technicality.” This technicality, in our minds, gives us permission to either lessen the impact of the command or, in some cases, disregard it entirely.  

LOOPHOLE HUNTERS - Episode One

Last week, we came face-to-face with the unfortunate truth that we, as God’s people, are often guilty of reducing His Word into mere “external observances.” We were forced to admit that we are often best known for turning the Bible into some kind of “checklist,” denying its real power (2 Tim. 3:5). We have an undeniably long history of taking God’s teachings, robbing them of their rich depth, and limiting their potential to change our lives from the inside out.

The show “House Hunters,” which premiered on HGTV in 1999, has produced over 1,700 episodes and spawned over a dozen “spinoff” shows in its 18-year run. Some of these recent spinoff shows include “House Hunters: RV Edition,” “Houseboat Hunters,” “Island Hunters,” and even “Tiny House Hunters.”

Are We Wrong About Being Wrong?

Wrong

In Matthew 23, Jesus had some unusually harsh words for a group of very religious people who had gotten a lot of things “wrong.” He acknowledged that they had gone to the trouble to “tithe mint and dill and cumin,” but He also accused them of having “neglected the weightier matters of the law” (vs. 23).

 Have you ever had a garage sale at your house?

Brooke and I have hosted a few successful garage sales during our 11 years of marriage, and by “successful” I mean that we are still married.
