The Gospel According to Pink

No, not her:
pink

Him:
aw-pink

That’s Arthur Walkington Pink and his book, “The Sovereignty of God” has been burning up my lunch hour.

Here are his words on the Gospel:

Concerning the character and contents of the Gospel, the utmost confusion prevails today. The Gospel is not an offer to be tossed around by evangelical peddlers.

The Gospel is no mere invitation, but a proclamation–a proclamation concerning Christ; true whether men believe it or not. No man is asked to believe that Christ died for him in particular.

The Gospel, in brief, is this: Christ died for sinners, you are a sinner, believe in Christ and you shall be saved.

Admittedly, Pink’s words have to do more with what the Gospel isn’t and his brief definition does not (cannot) surpass the Apostle’s divinely inspired definition, read it here.

God Sends Snow To Houston

“God thunders with His voice wondrously,
Doing great things which we cannot comprehend.
“For to the snow He says, ‘Fall on the earth…’ – Job 37:5-6

The snowfall that brought the Bayou City to a standstill (we all stopped and stared with incredulity) today was not of biblical proportions.

Nor was it enough to inspire Thomas Kinkade to paint another St. Nicholas’ Circle,
thomaskinkade

Yet it was pretty exciting to see snow falling from the heavens.

According to this story, this only marks the second time in the last 113 years that H-town gets snow this early (the other being on Dec. 10, 1944).

Imagine what would happen if humans weren’t contributing to global warming.

The possibilities are em, chilling indeed.
