The Discipline of the LORD

This is a guess post, by a special brother of mine, Adrian Bateman. He is an excellent teacher of the word and is a Super Moderator of Rapture Forums. Adrian and his lovely wife Andrea are members of First Baptist Church, Springfield Il.

No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No steam or gas ever drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.
—Rev. Harry Emerson Fosdick

Discipline is a topic we do not like to talk about. The act of discipline itself is unpleasant and usually painful. It was when we were children in our parents’ home. It is as children of the Lord. But, unlike our parents, God’s purposes are never punitive: they are always corrective.

Chaplain David Wells was told he could either sign a state-mandated document promising to never tell inmates that homosexuality is “sinful” or else the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice would revoke his credentials.

The recent appalling videos, and more to come, are proof positive of their mortifying actions--regardless of the spin the leadership of PP is pushing.

You can listen to it here: Planned Parenthood
Abby holds nothing back. She tells the world exactly what is told to the women who come into the clinic and even speaks of the incentives offered to PP employees for getting more abortions for their baby limb and organ peddling operations.

BriefingWire.com, - Springfield, Il. The Sifted Generation, Tested, Tried, and Found True is the new title that First Baptist Church Pastor & Author, Michael L. Henderson, has chosen in his endeavor to bring before the world a much needed explanation behind the tide of anti-christian sentiment sweeping across America and the world. Henderson points out,"that today's culture is becoming antagonistic toward biblical Christianity in ways that most Christians would have never imagined in their lifetime. We have gone from a godly nation that, for the most part, respected the church, to a post-modern world that can only be properly charact…
