So Declares Linus in it's the great. Pumpkin Charlie Brown today. Let's discuss all three. We'll begin with the last as Maggie Maloney observes in country living no autumn is complete without the most sacred of traditions which she identifies as viewing the classic peanuts movie the Halloween Special first aired in nineteen, sixty, six, it centers online his belief that the great pumpkin exists and that he will appear on Halloween night. Alas spoiler alert the evening ends with no. Great Pumpkin citing, but the movie closes with an undeterred linus vowing that the great pumpkin will come to the PUMPKIN patch next year. Now, in a sign of the Times, we learned that the film will not be shown this year by any of the major or cable networks but will air exclusively on Apple. TV plus the good news is that the streaming service will offer it free to all users from October thirtieth through. November, first, what does the Great Pumpkin have to do with politics and religion a great deal as it turns out The twenty twenty election is less than two weeks away depending on whose polls in analysis he read. Democratic nominee Joe Biden is on his way to a landslide victory or he will eke out a narrow win or the race is too close to call or there will be no winner November third and the election will descend into chaos or president trump will win reelection. We are all waiting to see which version of the story will come true. Meanwhile, the coronavirus pandemic is spiking as predicted the World Health Organization noted in a recent press briefing that Europe's case numbers grew by a million in the span of just. Ten, days one official warn that a much larger number of people could die in this upcoming season of Covid nineteen then did in April reports indicate that more than half of us states are seeing an uncontrolled spread of the virus. This wave threatens to be the worst since the pandemic began since death rates lag behind infections mortalities are expected to rise as well and constitute an urgent call to intercession. In the meantime, we're watching the economy where sales are up but surprising increase in jobless claims is raising alarms as with the pandemic. We are hoping that successful vaccine's will enable us to return to a financial normal. Here's my point lionesses great pumpkin our greatest hopes for the election, the pandemic and the economy will not change the underlying realities for us. Whoever wins the election our country will face deep angry divisions. Foundational issues such as when life begins and how it should end the nature of marriage in the family and the role of religion in our secular society whatever happens with community spread therapies and vaccines. To Stop the coronavirus pandemic, we are likely to face more viral pandemics in the future, not to mention the perennial facts of heart disease, cancer, aging accidents, and other causes of human mortality, and even if the post pandemic economy rebounds to new heights, millions of Americans will still face unemployment and underemployment economic discrimination will be a tragic fact and all the wealth in the world cannot buy what we need most. This last observation leads us to the hope we need most. Chuck Colson famously noted that the Kingdom of God will not arrive on Air Force One Americans may elect the leader of the free world, but the king of ages immortal invisible. The only God will still rule the universe as Saint Augustine said to our. Lord. You have made us for yourself and our hearts are restless until they rest in you we find true. And transforming unity when we draw close to his throne, we find true and transforming hope in the face of mortality. When we make Jesus, our Savior, we find true and transforming help for our needs when we trust them to him when we do our lives and our witness can draw others to his throne in worship to his salvation in faith and his provision entrust. Yesterday I was working in my library, win a book type caught my eye when I pulled it from the shelf, a small pamphlet came with it titled Live with yourself and like it it was written by Don W. Hillary's in nineteen, seventy two and was one of the first booklets given to me when I became a Christian in nineteen, seventy three when I reread it, I was drawn again to the story of Kendra San a narrative that deeply impressed me those many years ago Kendra was born in Japan with a face and body. So deformed that his parents kept him in seclusion however the radio brought in the. Message that God loved him and sent Jesus to be his savior when a Japanese Christian visited him Kendra was ready to place his faith in Christ. Later, he laboriously scrawled these words day by day as I walk this road of blessing, I received the fruits of faith in my hands. These blessings come from my Lord who is my strength and my hope praise the Lord for he gives me this wonderful salvation, his triumphant joy move the Christian workers who met him and told him in their letters Christian periodicals then published his story and now Ken Dora's influence has reached you. How can you find hope in your faith today? Connect with a Denison Forum on facebook instagram and twitter to keep the conversation going. Thank you for listening to the daily Article podcast today..

The Postcard has a green stamp of George, Washington priced at one cent. It's front displays.

However, it was postmarked October Twenty Ninth Nineteen Twenty according to The New York Times it's not clear where the postcard has been all this time or why it took. So long to reach its address, a Postal Service spokesman explained that such incidents typically occur when old letters and postcards are purchased at flea markets, antique shops or line then put in the mail. The person who mailed the postcard would hardly recognize our world today in the midst of a year unlike any other it's easy for us to feel the same way Burger King is unveiled its post pandemic future.

At, the World Economic Forum in two thousand eighteen Canadian Prime Minister Justin, Trudeau stated the pace of change has never been this fast yet it will never be this low again no matter how quickly the world seems to change human nature does not. We still face the same terrifying fears and feel the same cherished hopes as our ancestors in nineteen twenty and eighteen twenty, and we still need the unchanging truth of Biblical revelation in twenty twenty. When we depart from God's Word and wisdom, we do not break his laws. We, break ourselves on them. Ben. Shapiro's latest book how to destroy America in three easy steps focuses on our nation's founding philosophy culture and history according to Shapiro. The Unionist sees America as a great nation that strives though it often fails to live up to our ideals but nonetheless is progress and holds promise for an even better future. The disintegration. EST by contrast is convinced that America was irredeemably flawed from its inception in they're telling we were founded on the subjugation of native Americans and then African slaves they believe that. Our founding fathers created our to promote personal gain rather than the advancement of a unified mission for our people and that only by reading our history through this. Lens and then tearing down the philosophical and cultural foundations of our nation. Can we hope to build a future that is equitable for all? There is much more to the book than my summary of course but for our purposes today, I'd like to focus on Shapiro's description of our founding philosophy. He describes this philosophy in terms of three principles one, the reality of. Natural rights that pre exist government to the equality of all human beings before the law and in their rights three the belief that government exists only to protect natural rights and to enforce equality before the law. By contrast, the disintegration assists claim that natural rights do not exist post. Modern relativism asserts that all truth claims are personal and subjective as a result human nature is malleable rather than consistent. We should seek equality of outcomes rather than opportunity and the government should ensure such outcomes at whatever the cost to individuals citizens. Our nation's democratic experiment is grounded in five words all men are created equal. This is an expression of Genesis one, twenty, seven, God created man in his own image we have equality with each other because we are all created by the same God. Our democracy grows out of this conviction we refuse to submit to monarchs or dictators convinced that we can and should govern ourselves by electing leaders who are accountable to us. As we shift this foundation upon which our nation was built, we should not be surprised that cracks are appearing in our walls or that these cracks are growing wider. Every day, we'll say more about this back tomorrow as we focus one of the most disturbing stories I've seen in many years for today. Let's note that the most patriotic thing we can do in these devices days is to stand on the authority of Jesus and invite others to do the same. He is the only rock upon which to build a house that withstands the floods and storms of time.

As of this morning, we are watching apocalyptic images of scorch trees, buildings reduced to rubble and burned and blackened cars. The fires have produced a smoke cloud, the covers, almost a million square miles and traveled thirteen hundred miles. Oregon officials are bracing for a mass fatality incident after wildfires in their state have burned over one million acres. One story is especially heartbreaking three. Year old victim was found with his in his lap, the remains of Wyatt, toft his grandmother and Wyatt's dog were discovered inside the family car in Marion. County Oregon. A family member told reporters he got in there and tried to drive the car and started coming down the hill and then went off to the side. For some reason I, guess, all the tires were just burned up and everything the pavement was so hot. Tropical Storm Sally. is expected to become a hurricane today and appears likely to make landfall near the Louisiana Mississippi border. It could bring up to twenty four inches of rainfall with life threatening storm surges and hurricane force winds. Meanwhile, farmers in Louisiana are dealing with a gruesome result of Hurricane Laura thick swarms of mosquitoes driven from swamps and marshes by the storm have moved inland and. are killing cattle and horses. The bugs bite the animals so many times that they die from blood loss and exhaustion trying to evade the swarms, add wildfires, canes, and killer mosquitoes to the coronavirus pandemic that has taken more than nine, hundred, twenty, four, thousand lives as of this morning Christians claim that there is a God who is all knowing? All loving and all powerful we explain. Natural disasters as a consequence of the fall when human send all of creation was affected as well. Prior to genesis three there were no wildfires, canes or viruses. We've further explain much of innocent suffering as the consequence of misused freedom. If someone misuses their free will to get drunk and rex their car, this is not God's fault. It is not even his fault if this person. Rex Your car however, our all knowing all loving. All powerful God sometimes intervenes to prevent the consequences of the fall and misused free. Will Jesus calmed the Stormy Sea of Galilee the Lord Protected Peter From King is plan to execute him if the Lord sometimes intervenes to prevent innocent suffering, why does he not always intervene if he could save Peter? Why didn't he save? Wyatt? Toft. My father had rheumatic fever in high school. The disease weakened his heart leading to a heart attack when he was thirty three years old and his death from a second heart attack at the age of fifty five our oldest son was diagnosed with cancer several years ago and had to undergo surgery and follow up radiation. He is now well, but his suffering was another consequence of our fallen world I'm sure you can identify times of such suffering in your life and among those you know in this light, can you still believe in an all knowing all loving all powerful God the logical answer is that we can the practical answer is that we must. On a logical level the very fact that God is all knowing. All loving and all powerful assures us that he redeems our suffering for greater good because he is omniscient he knows our pain because he is all loving. He wants only what is best for us because he is omnipotent, he can redeem anything for a greater purpose. We may not understand such redemption on this side of eternity, but we can believe what we cannot yet see in the meantime we walk by faith not by sight on a practical level we must not reject the love and power of God when we need. Them most it is when we do not understand our suffering that we especially need to trust the one who sees what we cannot, and who loves us with unconditional grace. It is when our pain is greatest that we most need our great physician and it is when life is most painful that God's people should be most on our knees. We can pray for rain where wildfires are raging. We can pray for protection and strength for those responding to this unfolding tragedy. We can pray for those in the path of Hurricane Sally those endanger from wildfires and those who are struggling with covid nineteen. We can ask God to use us to answer our prayers in practical ways that incarnate his love and grace.

That invited me to worship and led to my salvation but we didn't talk about the spirit's power and work in our lives. The charismatic controversy was a major issue in those days with its emphasis on speaking in tongues and faith healings. Many of us were afraid of the excesses. We saw in this tradition. Unfortunately his such churches were guilty of an over emphasis on the work of the spirit. Many of us were equally guilty of not focusing on the spirit enough. I have observed at the same tendency in churches and nominations from those days to these some seem to focus only on the spirit while other seemed to ignore him neither is biblical consider.

Now here's Today's news discerned differently. Gunfire sunfire broke out yesterday morning during worship services at the West Freeway Church of Christ in white settlement a suburb of Fort Worth Texas. A gunman shot got to people before two members who are part of the church security team shot him. The gunman in one of the victims died at the hospital. A second victim was resuscitated. The way to the hospital but died later. One of the Victims Anton Tony Wallis was a husband father grandfather and registered nurse. His daughter said you don't think it's going to hit home and the fact that it hit our home and someone that supports us in loves US AND IS OUR DAD is gone on. That's what hurts. The most attacks on Christians are escalating worldwide for example. More than a thousand Rosen. Christians have been killed in Nigeria. This year one believer said our home is destroyed. The hospital was burnt. They tried to burn the roof of the Church which by piling up chairs like a bonfire life is frightening. Ideological pressure is being brought against our faith as well. For instance China intends to rewrite the Bible to reflect its communist ideology. The committee for Ethnic Affairs has announced a comprehensive evaluation of the existing wresting religious classics aiming at contents which do not conform to the progress of the Times according to the reports. Jesus Christ's parables. We'll have to fall in line with the Communist Party. Failing which they run the risk of being purged from the Bibles available to the faithful religious. His persecution is not limited to Christians. Communist officials in China are targeting the Koran and Buddhist texts for revisions as well and antisemitic Semitic hate crimes in New York. City are up fifty percent this year assaults on Jews nationally are up one hundred five percent over last year especially horrifying vying. Was the stabbing attack Saturday night. That left five Hasidic. Jews wounded to summarize the Associated Press reports that houses of worship ship were attacked with deadly frequency in twenty nineteen. Christians Buddhists Muslims and Jews all suffered assaults Corrie ten boom was released from the Ravensbruck concentration camp in northern Germany. Seventy five years ago today. She and her family had been arrested arrested because of their work with the underground resistance in their native Holland where they sheltered Jews from the Germans during World War Two. Her parents were murdered. Her sister died of starvation. At ravensbruck Corey was released on this day due to a clerical error. She spent the rest of her life proclaiming the Gospel of forgiveness and grace race. Her story illustrates this fact. Opposition to our faith is an opportunity for Jesus when we use persecution and temptation mm to turn to our Lord Independent Commitment. We position ourselves to experience his presence and provision in transforming ways then as he empowers empowers us our courage and perseverance become a powerful witness to his skeptical and antagonistic culture. Speaking of challenges to our faith Corrie ten boom noted. I know that such memories are the key not to the past but to the future. I know that the experiences of our lives when we we let God use them become the mysterious and perfect preparation for the work he will give us.

I'd never seen such technology acknowledged and a movie screen. And when Luke destroyed the death star. The cheers shook the theater. We've been cheering for the sky. Walkers for forty two years since as the Wall Street Journal notes the Star Wars business has been good business for Disney. The Force Awakens grossed nine hundred thirty seven million dollars domestically basically the most of any movie in Box Office History Disney's new streaming service launched with a star wars spin off called the men. delorean Disney reported that ten million users signed up a day after the service launched an immersive star wars themed attraction called Galaxy's edge. Open this year at Disney parks in Orlando and Anaheim. The attraction sells twenty dollars. Blue raise eighty four dollar DARTH vader gold rings thirty two dollars Chewbacca kitchen and aprons and one hundred ninety nine dollar lightsabres as well. What explains the remarkable generational popularity thirty of the Star Wars Franchise? Dr Travis Langley is a professor of psychology and lead writer of Star Wars Psychology. Dark side of the mind. He explains that Star Wars Creator. George Lucas deliberately wove the most successful elements of heroic epics from throughout history into his story. Dr Langley Langley. Points to Lucas's use of Joseph Campbell's work on the hero's journey which Campbell based on Carl Jung's writings about the power of archetypes and myth. According to Campbell the hero takes twelve steps one living in the ordinary world to hearing the call to adventure three refusing the call four meeting with a mentor. Five crossing the threshold to leave the ordinary world. Six testing testing allies and enemies seven approaching challenge eight facing the ordeal of death or great fear. Nine gaining winning the reward but facing the risk of losing it again ten taking the road back to complete the adventure eleven facing the resurrection one more severe test a possible moment of death and rebirth and twelve returning with the Elixir. The hero has been transformed shortly before he died. In nineteen eighty seven Campbell told reporter Bill Moyers that this journey is a fundamental experience that everyone has to undergo kimball is right. We are all on a journey toward God's purpose for our souls unfortunately many attempt to reach each their supernatural destination through natural means observant Jews drive to obey the six hundred thirteen laws of God. Muslims live by the five pillars pillars of Islam. Buddhists seek to follow their four noble truths and the noble eightfold path. Hindus practice ascetic rituals as they attempt to progress through multiple reincarnations toward their concept of salvation. As Paschal noted there is a god shaped emptiness in each of us like the Sky Walkers we battle the evil empire our hearts and our world as we seek to fulfil our ultimate destiny but unlike the sky walkers none of us can complete the hero's journey without the help of the one true hero..

Now here's Today's news discerned differently one of our daily Article Readers Robin emailed us these kind words that get to the heart of what we strive to do with the Denison Forum. I wake up at Sunrise daily and in my day by reading the daily article I so appreciate not only the top news stories but the Christian perspective it has helped me look at issues of our times with far more compassion and empathy regular news sources seem to thrive on stirring up fear negativity whereas reading the daily Article allows for Christ's principle goes to shine through I find they apply the even discernment I learned through reading this to other areas in my life especially all the information we are bombarded with on a daily basis yes thank you so much for this beginning to my weekdays our hope and building culture changing Christians is exactly what Robin said that God might Inspire Christians live for him in all areas of their lives. I write the daily article every weekday because I am convinced that Biblical truth always accomplishes God's purpose CIA fifty five eleven I believe the spirit of God uses the word of God to accomplish the will of God in the power of God would you pray about your in evolvement in reaching more people alongside me with Biblical truth by becoming a monthly partner as an expression of our gratitude you'll also receive complimentary advanced appease of my latest books and Resources and invitation to our private facebook group for the latest content from Denison Forum and Reading Recommendations from the dentist Warren Book Club to become a monthly partner visit daily Article Dot Org and thank you for your prayerful consideration of becoming a monthly partner at daily article Dot Org Attorney General William bars making headlines for a speech he delivered at Notre Dame University's law school last Friday a bar a devout Catholic told faculty and students that the problem is not that religion is being forced on others the problem is that irreligious is being forced secular values are being forced on people of Faith Bar ads among the militant secularists our so called progressives but where is the progress we are told we are living in a post Christian era but what has replaced the Judeo Christian moral system what is it that can fill the spiritual void in the heart of the individual person and what is the system of values that can sustain human social life the attorney general's said of the moral problems we are acing this is not the K- this is organized destruction secular forces and their allies have marshaled all the forces of mass communication popular culture the entertainment industry and academia in an unremitting assault on religion and traditional values I believe attorney general bars absolutely right here's why we are here many in our culture believe the lie that all truth claims are subjective impositions of personal power others tolerance of all viewpoints must therefore be mandated except of course for viewpoints deemed intolerant according to this agenda The free them to express religious beliefs ends were such freedom is deemed harmful to or by another person any person of course the harm done to the person pressing his or her religious beliefs is ignored in such times answering God's call to be culture changing Christians requires both urgency and courage the higher the summit the harder the climb a dear friend recently shared with me this statement from Seventeen and century theologian John Owen there is no duty to perform for God that sin does not oppose and the more spirituality or holiness there is what we do the greater the enmity to it thus those who seek the most for God experienced the strongest opposition Peter would agree. Eh after the Apostle courageously declared the gospel at Pentecost and three thousand came to new life in Christ the same authorities who arranged Jesus murder arrested him on trial for his life Peter declared to them that Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you the builders which has become the corner stone and there is salvation in no one else for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved that's acts four eleven and twelve how did the GALLEON fishermen who denied Christ three times find the courage to make such a bowl proclamations the key is in verse eight then Peter Filled with the Holy Spirit said to them pre pentecost Peter failed to find the fortitude to make public his commitment to Christ Post Pentecost Peter stood for his Lord so boldly in Sakr officially that he paid for his faith with his life according to you CBS the Fourth Century Church historian the apostle was forced to watch his wife's martyrdom then he was crucified head downwards for he had requested that he might suffer in this way why did Peter Make this request he told his executioners I am not worthy to be crucified like my Lord that in having reversed the cross they nailed his feet up the same Holy Spirit who empowered Jesus Earthly Ministry and Resurrection Empowered Peter's Earth the ministry and faithful death he now dwells in us as his temple he stands ready to use our spiritual gifts and manifest his spiritual fruit in our fallen culture for the glory of God the question is not the spirit ability but our ability as well Chambers wrote the trumark of the saint is that he can waive his own rights and obey the Lord Jesus James Caster of the Society of Saint John The event a-list notes it is when we live in union and communion with God that we can speak with the same authority as Jesus did but knowing God rather than knowing about God is a dangerous thing it requires us to be like Jesus it requires us to empty ourselves and take on the form of a servant it requires us to become obedient even to the point of death only then can we say that we truly know God to be filled with the Holy Spirit we must I be emptied of ourselves Jesus was clear on this in Luke nine twenty three if anyone would come after me let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me then we can say with John the Baptist Jesus must increase but I must decrease and we will discover the truth. with J I packer's assertion you will never need more than he can supply by God's providence you and I are alive at this moment in history because. by God's Providence we can make any ternal difference at this moment in history Max Lucado noted God never said that the journey would be easy but he I'd say that the arrival would be worthwhile I would add the harder the journey the more worthwhile the arrival how hard is your journey for Jesus today if you like what you heard please leave a rating and review for the podcast.

Here's Today's news discerned differently. Did you know that the Denison Forum is located in Dallas Texas consequently that makes us eligible to be a beneficiary of North Texas giving day an incredible annual you'll event that emphasizes generosity for hundreds of local nonprofits but what makes North Texas giving day so powerful is that anyone in the world can participate estimate from now until midnight central standard time on Wednesday September eighteenth you can pre schedule your gift denison forum so that it's added to our total on September number nineteen th the actual day of North Texas giving day and have you heard that we are hoping to raise one million dollars to reach one million more Christians. If you feel called to give visit the daily Article dot com today to schedule your gift. We are incredibly thankful for any amount you may give at the daily. Article DOT COM Kelsey Griffin arrived at Church on Wednesday night for a prayer rally and a concert. The fourteen year old was sitting on the second row with friends when a gunman entered the church and opened fire killing her and six others and wounding seven before taking his own life. The shooting occurred on September number Fifteenth Nineteen Ninety nine at Wedgwood Baptist Church in Fort Worth Texas Sunday the congregation marked the twentieth anniversary of the tragedy among those those in attendance were Kassy's parents who had to identify their daughter that horrible night by the Halloween themed socks she had been wearing Kathy Griffin and the other victims uh-huh were in a prayer meeting when they died this grievous fact raises the question why pray in our post nine eleven world why pray for protection action from terrorists in this era of mass murders why ask God to defend us and those we love from the next shooter. Let's consider for theological logical facts one God honors the freedom he gives us the most famous verse in Scripture John. Three sixteen tells us that whoever whoever believes in Jesus will have eternal life in Joshua twenty four fifteen Joshua challenged his people to choose this day whom you will serve thus we should not pray for the Lord to remove a person's free will even if they intend to misuse their freedom for evil to God sometimes tmz engineers circumstances to help draw people to himself. The Lord did not remove solids freedom when he traveled to Damascus to persecute Christians but he did visit him with a blinding light in the voice of Jesus to which Saul responded in faith thus we can pray for God to draw himself those planning planning evil before they commit their crimes three God sometimes answers prayer by protecting victims of misused freedom when King Herod had imprisoned Peter With plans to execute him acts twelve five says that earnest prayer for Peter was made to God by the Church. The result was an angelic visitation that freed the apostle thus we can pray for God to protect those we love from those who would harm them for sometimes sometimes. God does not prevent the suffering of those we love. Peter was saved from Herod but executed years later by Nero Paul was spared in Damascus Aska's but beheaded in room thus we can pray for divine intervention but cannot be certain the Lord will act as we ask deliver us from evil is part of the prayer. Jesus taught us to pray in Matthew six thirteen if God will not always deliver us why pray for him to do so one answer is that we have nothing to lose. We can modify Pascal's wager here. If we pray for protection God does not provide vied. We lose nothing. If we fail to pray for Protection God would have provided lose everything but while this may be reasonable it scant motivation into pray with passionate faith. We're like a farmer who plant seeds. He's not sure will grow no matter how much water's fertilizes them is praying for the the best and then hoping for the best the best we can do. I've often said we should pray and then trust that God will give us what we ask or what is best has every parent knows there are times when it is better for us than our father refused our request than that he should grant it but would I suggest cassie. Griffin's parents that their daughter's murder was God's best the fact that I sometimes cannot understand. God's ways leaves me with two options. One is to view what I believe about God through the prism of what I don't understand when evil strikes I can abandon my conviction that God is is love and that he heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds. My other option is to judge what I don't understand about. God through the prism of what I believe leave. I can choose to trust that he is love. Even when I don't see his love and action I can believe that his ways are higher than my ways and his thoughts. Let's than my thoughts that he can no more explain the mystery of innocent suffering to my finite fallen mind then I can explain the doctrine of predestination to a two year old old in war. The worse thing soldier can do is to refuse a command simply because he does not understand it. You and I are waging a spiritual war. You're in which obedience to our king is vital and in such obedience to his word and grace we find his peace cassie. Griffin's father told the Wedgwood Baptist Church congregation last Sunday that he became angry and bitter after her death. I don't get it God. David David Griffin recalled thinking cassie lived for you and you let her die in church. Then one day he opened Kassy's Bible to averse she had annotated whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease without fear of harm cassie had drawn a line under without and a box around on the weird fear. Griffin told the congregation that this was a sacred moment for him. He understood that the verse did not mean believers would live without harm but they could live without fear. What fear do you need to trust your father today. If you like what you occurred please leave a rating and review for the PODCAST. Thank you for listening to the daily Article podcast today..

"This is the daily. Article podcast published by Denison Forum or Culture Changing Christians to receive the daily article directly to Your Tale Inbox Week Day morning visit the daily Article Dot Com now. Here's Today's news discerned differently. It's been said that history pivots on tiny hinges the shots fired at Fort Sumter April twelfth eighteen sixty one the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand on June twenty the eighth Nineteen Fourteen Pearl Harbor nine eleven at this time eighteen years ago no one but the terrorists knew that September eleventh two thousand was in one would change history. We owe it to the victims and their loved ones to remember what happened on this horrific day. At the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan Two thousand seven hundred fifty three people were killed when hijacked American Airlines flight eleven and United Airlines flight one seventy five were flown into the North and south towers. The victims ranged in age from two to eighty five years at the Pentagon one hundred eighty. Four people were killed when hijacked American Airlines flight seventy seven crashed into the building near Shanksville Pennsylvania forty passengers and crew aboard United Airlines Flight Ninety three died when the airplane crashed into a field as of July twenty nineteen only sixty percent of the WTC victims remains have been positively identified and the deaths continue twenty three New York Police Department first responders were killed in the attack on the World Trade Center but two hundred forty one members of the NYPD I pee dee so far have died of nine eleven related illnesses while three hundred forty three members of the Fire Department of New York died in the attack two hundred two. FDA NY members so far have died of illnesses related to their service and September eleven or in the immediate aftermath on the morning of September Eleventh Two thousand one Christina's stanton could see smoke billowing from the World Trade Center after the first plane hit. The second plane then flew within five hundred feet of her twenty fourth floor balcony. The roar of the airplanes engines knocked her down rendering her temporarily death. She and her husband has been Brian fled their building as the towers fell and debris covered everything. Christina and Brian exhausted stopped she asked him. Are we going to die. I he responded by praying the Lord's prayer before nine eleven. She says I would call myself somebody who went to church on Sundays but admits that she really really had an internalized. The Bible internalized who Jesus said he was who I am with him when the attacks happened. She says I learned wow how I actually have no control. She realized that life isn't just work. Hard and God will bless and prosper you she adds. My worldview was totally changed. The advances in technology in medicine that are revolutionizing our lives are fundamentally attempts to control our our world researchers seek genetic breakthroughs to control the prevention diagnosis and treatment of disease. We use digital calendars in time-saving APPs to control control our days we used driving APPs to control traffic and news filters to control the information we receive I for one am grateful for such advances this technology that makes it safer to travel by air and discoveries that reduce the chance of terminal illness are most welcome but the anniversary of nine eleven reminds reminds us that the upsides of such attempts to control our world bring to significant downsides. One is the illusion that we can control what cannot be controlled. It is safer than ever to travel by air but murderers can still go on shooting sprees. Meteorology is more advanced than ever but our best scientists still cannot fully predict the path of hurricanes. Medical Science is more accomplished than ever but the death rate is still one hundred percent. This is why scripture teaches teaches us in a Fijian's five fifteen through sixteen to be very careful in how you live not as unwise but as wise making the most of every every opportunity because the days are evil a second lesson from nine eleven is the priority of living for Heaven on earth in Luke Twelve nineteen. Jesus told us about a rich man who said to himself soul you have ample goods laid up for many years relax. EAT DRINK BE MERRY. However God said to him fool this night. Your soul is required of you and the things you have prepared. WHO's will they be Jesus added so is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God at the last Church pastored one year the Youth Ministry titled. It's summer camp camp the Dash. The reference was to the DASH and our tombstones between the year. We are born and the year we die. The imagery is good theology this. This world is only the precursor to the world to come. Even if this eighteen th anniversary of nine eleven passes in relative calm when the day is done you and I will be one day closer to eternity than ever before that's why we should begin every day by submitting it to the power of the Holy Spirit then seek God's glory over your own and live for heaven on earth after the nine eleven attacks Christina Stanton quit her job as a New York tour. We're guide to become the director of missions for her. Church Brian Stanton left his finance job on Wall Street to become the CFO of the church. They decided to to give control of their lives to the only one who was truly in control. How will you do the same today.

according to the wall street journal scientists have not identified a single asteroid will collide with our planet within the next century now the bad news hundreds of thousands of near earth asteroids have not been identified as an example of this problem a relatively small sixty foot wide asteroid exploded in the atmosphere near a city in russia six years ago creating a blast wave the

them with the wrong embryos thee asian american parents gave birth in march expecting female twins but delivered to mail boys neither of whom was of asian descent then had to give the boys up to their biological parents yesterday i discuss the importance of making every moment count in greek terms we're seeking cairo's the quality of life in our cronos the quality of life in a world is unpredictable and unstable is ours how do we do this here's the counter cultural paradox the more we livery before he turned eighty the better relive today some reasons are obvious if we knew we would stand before god in judgment tomorrow there are since we would not commit today people we would forgive and seek forgiveness from and so on clearly it is best for us to do these things even if we leave another fifty years on this planet being in good health is not only a vital way to delay my death is also the best way to living my life preparing for the future is investing in the present however there's less obvious fact i discovered in god's word that is especially relevant today as well some eighteen is one of my favorite chapters in scripture it's inscription explains the david wrote these words of praise and thanksgiving on the day when the lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies end from the hand of saul you know the story when god selected david to succeed saul is king saul then set out to kill david first samuel twentyone through thirty provides the narrative ending with the death of salt at the hand of the philistines in first samuel thirty one in thanking god for his deliverance david states in some eighteen thirty five you have given me the the shield of your salvation and you're right hand supported me these metaphors are common in scripture end attest to god's protection and encouragement for his chosen servant however david then adds a phrase that surprised me when i discovered it and you're gentleness made me great gentleness can be translated from the hebrew as condescension care or humility the new international readers version says you bend down to make me great the new century version and is similar you of stooped to make me great great means to be multiplied to increase to become numerous to become powerful think of it god wants to make us great he wants to help us become all we can be for his internal glory and our present good here's how we did this or david as reported in some eight thirty six you gave a wide place for my steps under me and my feet the slip like david god has given you a wide place where you're steps is chosen in humility to give you freedom by which you could follow his will and honor his name but you must walk on the wider place he intends for you seeking like david there'll be a person after god's heart this is putting god's glory ahead of your own choosing his will over your is it is living for heaven on earth is also the best way to deliver on earth our post christian

christians in the city culture wars from the tiber to the potomac law professor stephen d smith writes the ancient form of paganism is becoming orthodox today he notes that religion in the roman

reform practices that were taken for granted in the pagan world infanticide slavery inequality quality and neglect of the poor and the disease smith quotes christian historian robert wilken the

century struggle between christianity in paganism a struggle seeking to reverse the revolution the christianity achieved in late antiquity equity our secular culture looks to inner worldly sources of moral authority while the christian worldview looks to external truth grounded in god's transcendent revelation the former seeks to limit religious freedom to keep the troublesome troublesome

"denison forum" Discussed on The Daily Article

"Hi, I'm Dennis Denison forum. And this is the daily article for Friday, October twenty six twenty eighteen at least nine suspicious packages have been sent this week to prominent Democrats and critics of President Trump. None of the devices have exploded, and nobody has been hurt on Wednesday. Authorities intercepted bombs intended for former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton suspicious packages were sent to Joe Biden and several other top political figures as well CNN's New York bureau was evacuated after a package containing a bomb was discovered. The latest package was sent to act a Robert deniro. The FBI is analyzing the packages at its laboratory in Quantico Virginia. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement condemning the attacks these terrorizing acts are despicable. She said describing the perpetrators as cowards. She is exactly right such threats against political figures, threaten us, all whatever our political differences. We are the United States, whatever our background and beliefs. We are all. All Americans the priority of solidarity as a lesson. I see on display each time. I travel in the Middle East as record today's daily article from Jerusalem, I'm looking for my hotel room at a city composed of Jews era, Muslims, Arab Christians, and dozens of other sects I love visiting the church of the holy sepulcher for six different Christian traditions worshiped together, but unity in the face of adversity is not enough to end all adversity to solve our most persistent problems. We must admit another fact of solidarity one that affects us all in Matthew, wait is Turin and asked Jesus to heal. His paralyzed servant Jesus. Replies. In verse seven I will come in. He'll him this interior and replies. In verse. Eight Lord, I am not worried that it have you come under my roof. This confession prompted a remarkable prayer by the late. William Brielle, a writer and artist in California. He wrote this quote Lord Christ. I wish I could offer you a reasonably clean and swept house to dwell in. But I can't I can say and know the meaning of. I am not worried. They'd have you come under my roof. But you're already there living among the once flourishing idols the floor is dirty and at times the room is airless. Even for me. I am ashamed of your presence there yet you slept in a cave in on a donkey's back at night under the desert stars. So if I can't change your accommodations me rejoice all the same that you are present in quote to this point father brielle's prayer assures me that if Jesus would make his home in the majors cave. He would make his home in me. This is a wonderful truth. But not a new thought. But as far the real continues, his prim, he makes a statement. That was a new insight for me quote. I must believe strongly Lord that I can't question this that you are at homeless centers and my greatest sin. Lord Christ is that. I don't want to be a center in quote, when I read the statement, I immediately objected how can migrate ascend be that. I don't want to be a center, it should be the opposite. I should want not to be a center. So my sins don't continue to dishonor my Lord damage my life, and those I touch in heaven, I'll be a sinner, no more. According to revelation, twenty one twenty seven I should want the same on earth. Or so it seemed to me, but the more I considered father brielle's prayer the more I came to see its wisdom. I'm willing to admit that I commit sins. But I don't want to admit that I'm a center, I don't want to be a Senator because I don't want to have to live in the kind of dependence on God that my sinful nature requires. I don't want to have to be repentant submitted and humble in the words of Henley's Invictus. I want to have an uncon-. Crumble soul. I want to be the master of my fate and the captain of my soul and such a desire for self dependent self righteous freedom from God. And man is indeed my greatest sin. Father brielle's point is that we have no ability to sanctify ourselves. We must depend on God's grace as much for our sanctification as for our salvation. However, you and I an opposite problem as well. We can so emphasize father saving grace that we overlook our role and our sanctification God is a perfect parent. No good. Parents love their children any less because they make mistakes at the same time. All good parents expect their children to learn from their mistakes and grow as people. That's our heavenly father's expectation for us when we accept our faults. As permissible because we know they won't change how he loves us. We disrespect him as our father, and we forfeit our opportunity to experience the abundant life of Jesus today. Our Lord wants us to admit our need for his spirits. Transformational work, then practiced the spiritual disciplines that position us to experience. His grace. The result is that we've become more like Jesus the bombs intended for Democratic Party leaders revealed the depravity. Of the human heart. They call us to renew our commitment to speaking the truth in love of Asians, four fifteen with those who love us and with those who do not Matthew fi forty four. And they remind us that we need the power of Jesus to be like Jesus, we need the power of the spirit. Demand affect the fruit of the spirit the more. We admit that we're centers and partner with God. In our sanctification, the less we sin and the more were transformed by his grace, and the more we share the hope of Jesus with our broken world. Charles Spurgeon said the truth. We are centers is painfully with us to make us humble and make us watchful. Will you be humble and watchful today? Thank you.
