Signs You Haven't Experienced Gospel Wakefulness

1. The gospel doesn't interest you--or it does, but not as much as other religious subjects.
2. You take nearly everything personally.
3. You frequently worry about what other people think.
4. You treat inconveniences like minor (or major) tragedies.
5. You are impatient with people.
6. In general, you have trouble seeing the fruit of the Spirit in your life (Gal 5:22-23).
7. The Word of God holds little interest.
8. You have great difficulty forgiving.
9. You are told frequently by a spouse, close friend, or other family members that you are too "clingy" or too controlling. 
10. You think someone besides yourself is the worst sinner you know.
11. The idea of gospel centrality makes no sense to you.

GMYX 2011

Before this year ends, let me mention my praises because of what God has done to GMYX:

  • I thank God for the young people's eagerness to learn His Word and grow in the faith.
  • This year is quite challenging for me. I was sent into the hospital after GET WIRED Camp. Thank God because He used this situation that leaders may rise up. It's great that Alexis is the one leading this ministry now.
  • Resources, resources, resources! God never fails to provide. There are people who send us messages telling us that they are willing to give.
  • God is sending workers who are very willing to be equipped and be involved in His Work.

Just One Lyrics

Ask what changes a man
And the answers are a dime a dozen
Points of view are like sand
Stretching out as far as the eye can see
There's a thousand different philosophies
But there's just one book
And there's just one name
With the power to heal and the grace to save
You can search the world for another way
But if you're lookin' for the road to be on
There's just one

There's too much at stake
To be wasting time on imitations
Promises and claims
There will never be a substitute
For the blood, the word, and the simple truth

Door to open where truth and hope will be
Waiting there on the other side
Just one story that's never-ending
With life beginning in Jesus Christ

Phillips, Craig & Dean

“Antinomianism so stresses Christian freedom from the condemnation of the law that it underemphasizes the need of the believer to confess sins daily and to pursue sanctification earnestly.  It may fail to teach that sanctification inevitably follows justification.”  The New Dictionary of Theology

Logic 101

The Straw Man fallacy is committed when a person simply ignores a person's actual position and substitutes a distorted, exaggerated or misrepresented version of that position. This sort of "reasoning" has the following pattern:

  1. Person A has position X.
  2. Person B presents position Y (which is a distorted version of X).
  3. Person B attacks position Y.
  4. Therefore X is false/incorrect/flawed

The Lonely Road

By Trevor Baker
They say the years
Have come and gone
And things are not the same
And all the ways from yesterday
Have been removed or changed
We say we’ve come so far
We can’t go back
You’d think the if we’re that smart
We’d know more than that
I’ll take my chances
I believe the saints of old
They said a time would come like this
When many would grow cold
The Lord Himself gave warnings
So I guess we’ve been told
So I must prepare myself
To walk this lonely road
The world keeps
Growing darker now
The Light’s been left behind
And those who live their life for good
Are harder now to find
It seems that we’ve forgotten
How to blush
And if you raise your voice against it
They say, “what’s the fuss?”
I’d like to think it’s just a phase
There’s saner days ahead
‘Cuz at the rate we’re going now
We might soon raise the dead
‘Cuz they’ve been rollin’ round
For quite some time
And if they came back now
They’d say we’ve lost our minds
