  1. I recently put in the church bulletin a list of 13 of my short books, telling members I will give them a copy if they will read it, then put a review on Amazon encouraging others to read it. They were written to save souls! Out of 125, one took a copy. What an easy way it would have been for them to help spread the gospel, but it seemed to be over their head. BTW, I am making arrangements to go to Egypt to teach English to Muslims using the Bible as a text book. Still working out details as I do not want to endanger the Christians who live there.

    • You make a great point Katheryn that spreading the Gospel doesn’t always need to be difficult; we just need to bother doing it. As for teaching in Egypt, I know we all will be praying that God will use your efforts in a mighty way in that land!

  2. Greatly appreciate this, Don. We seem to be living in an era where entitlement, happiness and comfortability are more the desire than character and holiness. Ouch. What you’ve said really puts it out there. Thank you for your boldness. We all need a dose of God’s outrageous courage.

  3. Excellent reminder to be bold in what we are called to do—be a witness! It does not have to be difficult, jut get it done in boldness.

  4. In the early days, Christians believed the message of Jesus that the coming of the kingdom of heaven on earth was imminent. I believe it is we who have prevented it’s revelation. Jesus knew that, even 2000 years ago, humanity could achieve the level of righteousness needed. The apostles spread Jesus’s message throughout the Roman world. The kingdom of heaven is here, waiting for us to reveal it’s glory, and yet somehow, humanity has fallen short. Much of the blame lies at the feet of hedonistic secular western culture, but not all. What Jesus said in his day applies to many priests and fundamentalist today:
    “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. ”
    — Mathew 23:13
