This lane for serial killers only...

After brainstorming with a few friends we cam up with some bumber stickers that serial killers should have on their car.

-Have a knife day.

-My other car is a knife.

-I knived your honor rool student.

-If you can read this bumper sticker...I am standing right behind you.

-Guns don't kill people...quick enough.

Thats really all we have for now. Just thought I would share the funny.

The World's Smallest Jesus

There are time that I am very concerned about the way that society views Christianity. There are a lot of very popular pastors (actually I think "speakers" is a more accurate term) out there who tell people what they want to hear.

I was think about this the other day when I went to get my oil changed at Wal-Mart and was walking around, killing time when I saw the new book by Joel Olsteen.

I decided I would go over and flip through the book to see if I could see what the book was really about. The book is titled "Being A Better You" and it is full of encouraging little anecdotes that are carefully worded to not offed anybody.

I do not think that is was a coincidence that when I opened up to a random page and read "When you are honest about who you are, you will find the power inside yourself to bring out your good qualities as well as those qualities in others"

This is the basis of his book.

This is a pastor who refuses to use the word "sin" because he does not believe in it.

If you do not believe in sin then there was nothing that we were saved from.

It is a way of saying that Christ's death on the cross was not necessary and therefore we can call Jesus our savior because he did not save us from anything.

Olsteen has turned his Christ into a model of the real thing.

So do yourself a favor. If you see this book....

Do not buy it. In fact for the sake of others I think you should move this book in front of it.

Remember that our sin is real, and this is not something to be discouraged about because that means that are savior is real, however if we make our sin small then we also make Christ small.
