“Ten reasons NOT to ask Jesus into your heart” by Todd Friel.

Todd Friel is spot on. Great article. I was actually born again in 1952 when God, the Holy Spirit, drew me to repentance and faith. Yes, I sin and when I do I very quickly repent.

Truth in Grace

PrivateTen reasons NOT to ask Jesus into your heart.

By Todd Friel

The music weeps, the preacher pleads, “Give your heart to Jesus. You have a God shaped hole in your heart and only Jesus can fill it.” Dozens, hundreds or thousands of people who want to get their spiritual life on track make their way to the altar. They ask Jesus into their heart.
Cut to three months later. Nobody has seen our new convert in church. The follow up committee calls him and encourages him to attend a Bible study, but to no avail. We label him a backslider and get ready for the next outreach event.

Our beloved child lies in her snuggly warm bed and says, “Yes, Daddy. I want to ask Jesus into my heart.” You lead her in “the prayer” and hope that it sticks. You spend the next ten years questioning if she…

Do I Still Live in America?

We have lived in Eucha, Oklahoma since 2002 but the United State Postal Service does not come to our house.  About six weeks ago I ordered something from JCPenny and she said in broken English, “We do not mail to P.O. Box.” Me is loud voice: What??? You have for 15 years. JCP: No, you must have physical address.  If one could slam down a cell phone that would be so great.  I have a company 12 miles from me that told me I could use their physical mailing address so I tried ordering again using online ordering.  ERROR MESSAGE:  Not valid address.  I emailed corporate to advise them I would NO LONGER BE ORDERING ANYTHING FROM THEM EVER.  I haven’t heard one word.

Last Friday I was the the beauty shop with my hair in foil and my husband called and asked me for the JC Penny’s roadside service telephone number.  I have him ALL the information so I wouldn’t have to get up out of the chair again.  He called back.  They said the card expired. THEY NEVER TOLD US.  We have had that card since 1990.  That would be nineteen ninety AD.

About an hour ago I called JCP.  I got transferred eight (8) times.  Not one person spoke clear English, say like Southern English, like Texans.  I prepared coffee, make apple with peanut butter and when I finally got another weirdo on the line FINALLY I said:  I WANT TO CLOSE MY ACCOUNT!!!!!  Thank God, I am the primary card holder.  She could not believe that after being such a loyal customer ALL these years I would close.  All cards have been cut to shreds and that was easy since I was so angry.

Then I called AAA who answered without me pressing 1 for ____, 2 for____, if you want this department press 3…. and got a real American, opened up an account, she is emailing me the entire package with cards included.

Just so you will know, because I know that you do want to know, in the past two years I closed Target account because they don’t allow me to carry my concealed weapon.  I do not remember why I closed Kohls but it was somethings against my rights as an American and now I have closed JCP.  If it were not for John Gulley being the primary card holder I would close Lowes.  I tried.  I couldn’t.  I might tell you that five year floor saga some other time.

WHERE IS THE DISCERNMENT?

When I have to go to my optometrist or a physician it is usually a 45 minute drive and I like to take a friend, eat lunch and shop.  Yes, I like shopping.  I live in the boonies and sometimes we are not on GPS.  So, yesterday I had to go the the optometrist.  In the optometrist’s office I am getting all the pictures of my eyes on three different machines. Lawd!  I’ve been going there since 2002 so I’ve known Jada all those years.  I basically talk all of the time because here on the lake there is NO ONE to talk to except my adopted dog, Reba.

I start telling Jada about this old lady at the circle maker church at the funeral last Thursday and I’m letting my hair grow long because I want to.  This Ruby asked me at the funeral if I was trying to be a teenager and I say YES!  I guess she is deaf. Jada looked at me with a shocked look.  Now we are walking into the examining room and she asked what the Circle Maker Church was and I told them that the pastor starting teaching out of the book, The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson and I left.  She asked me what was wrong the the book and I asked, “Have you read it?”  She said, “Yes.”  I said, “Well, number one you do not have to pray audacious prayers for God to answer you AND we are not to draw circles around us when we pray.  Wiccans do that.”  She replied that the author didn’t have circles until the last part of the book….plus I had to explain what a wiccan was.  I told her that I googled the book and found this guy name Chris Rosebrough who had three YouTube videos debunking The Circle Maker.  She said that she had never heard of him.  I told her that I have listened for two years and got deprogrammed from 68 years of brainwashing. The doctor came in and rescued Jada…well, because he had to examine my eyes.  I wish I could have spent another 30 minutes with her.

THEN we went to my once favorite boutique and she was playing Hillsong music.  My friend and I both got a creepy feeling.  YES.WE.DID.  Another woman comes into the store and exclaims, “Oh, I love Hillsong.”  I exlaimed loudly, “Brian Houston is a heretic and I do not listen to that.”  Dead silence.

I will probably be banned from Vinita, Oklahoma.  Oh wait….they like my money.

 

 

Brian leverages off father’s reputation & hides paedophilia to promote himself & Hillsong

In his book Live Love Lead, Brian Houston recalls the time he found out about his father’s shocking secret in late October 1999:

“… and I thought to myself, “This is not just immoral-this is criminal.” My father had committed paedophilia.”
pg. 80.

Eight months later after that confession in late October 1999, Brian Houston published a book titled ‘You Can Change the Future: Living Beyond Today and Impacting the Generations Ahead‘, praising the life, ministry and person of his father… in which he forgot to mention his father was a paedophile (and was currently under discipline).

This article will examine excerpts of this controversial book.

(Click to look at snippets from ‘You Can Change The Future’ in this pdf)

According to Brian Houston at the Royal Commission and in his book ‘Live Love Lead’, he expects everyone to believe that:

  1. He handled his father’s affairs with honesty.
  2. He handled his father’s affairs…
