Just a quick thought following a song that I heard.

Was it a morning like this? It may well be today, let's look up as our redemption draws nigh. 
"Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words." (Thessalonians 4:17-18).
Maranatha, Even so come Lord Jesus.
I was recently grieved in my spirit to learn that the Western church was going to use the latest Superman Movie as a form of outreach and as a foundation to teach their congregations. Of course this is not new; the following is just a sample list of movies that resulted in ensuing Bible studies:
  • The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
  • Evan Almighty
  • Prince Caspian
  • The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
  • Bruce Almighty
  • Harry Potter

For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; He will save us (Isaiah 33:22).

Who is it (or what is it) that I depend on? Surely that in which I trust is that which I believe?  In short my life is guided by that in which I believe and the way I live, together with the confessions of my mouth, reveal the foundation of my heart; or using modern speak, reveal our world view.

The following has caused me to consider modern day, "outreach" or "ministry" and to ask, "Is this really the leading and work of God?", and if not, "What should in look like?"
