“The price is certainly high for people who don’t know Christ and who live in a world where Christians shrink back from self-denying faith and settle into self-indulging faith. While Christians choose to spend their lives fulfilling the American dream instead of giving their lives to proclaiming the kingdom of God, literally billions in need of the Gospel remain in the dark”

James Mc Sorley Hi Chase, dont know the guy in question but our own pastor is moving on after over sixty years in the ministry and it was heartbreaking! I pray that the church in Brookhills as well as our own flock in Belfast are able to transition quickly and accept and help the new pastors in our respective assemblys.

“To every toiling, heavy-laden sinner, Jesus says, Come to me and rest. But there are many toiling, heavy-laden believers, too. For them this same invitation is meant. Note well the words of Jesus, if you are heavy-laden with your service, and do not mistake it. It is not, Go, labor on, as perhaps you imagine. On the contrary, it is stop, turn back, Come to me and rest. Never, never did Christ send a heavy laden one to work; never, never did He send a hungry one, a weary one, a sick or sorrowing one, away on any service. For such the Bible only says, Come, come, come.”

Richard Dawkins’s Comments Regarding Down Syndrome, David

The Gospel and Down Syndrome

Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins) Women have a right to early abortion. Choice is theirs. Down Syndrome is 1 of the commonest & most moral reasons to exercise that right.
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins)  @TonyD048 I think abortion is right if the woman wants an abortion. Down syndrome is one very good, and extremely common reason, to want it.
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins) I do not for one moment apologise for approaching moral philosophic questions in a logical way. There’s a place for emotion & this isn’t it.
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins)  Most countries accept a woman’s right to abort. Elementary moral philosophy says this does NOT cast doubt on existing people’s right to life
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins) There’s a profound moral difference between “This fetus should now be aborted” and “This person should have been aborted years ago.”
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins)  @Roland_DeVries Yes. Suffering should be avoided. Cause no suffering. Reduce suffering wherever you can.
Response by Jared Buckley: http://specialfamiliescoach.com/richard-dawkins-abortion-of-babies-with-down-syndrome/

Bruce Baker (‏@iambbaker) @RichardDawkins says immoral not to abort baby with Down’s Syndrome. I say high IQ points clearly don’t = high humanity points. #prolife
Ulixes (@THawiliC) The problem is not what @RichardDawkins said, it is that you are all incapable of distinguishing”abort now”frm”you should have been aborted”
Rob Johnson (‏@robjohnson90) @mygospelfriends 1/2 Dawkins is on his way out. He is, however, consistent. He doesn’t believe in objective morality.
Rob Johnson (@robjohnson90) @mygospelfriends 2/2 What’s funny tho, is he spends a ton of time criticizing religion as if it’s objectively wrong. He’s really consistent.
Heretic ‏(@FakeHeretic) @mygospelfriends yeah, let’s all kick the [EDIT] out of @RichardDawkins while he’s down, just as Jesus commanded us to!
Hershel Kreis (‏@W4TMN) @mygospelfriends Easy question:  Dawkins = intelligent idiot.  Too educated to see the truth even though it is all around him
James Westbrook™ ‏(@westbrook___) @mygospelfriends Mr. Dawkins has continued to make his anti-religion argument less and less valid as time progresses.

Mars Hill and Mark Driscoll’s Removal from the Acts 29 Network

Post on Acts29Network.org:

August 8, 2014
A Message from the Board of Acts 29 concerning Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Church

It is with deep sorrow that the Acts 29 Network announces its decision to remove Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Church from membership in the network. Mark and the Elders of Mars Hill have been informed of the decision, along with the reasons for removal. It is our conviction that the nature of the accusations against Mark, most of which have been confirmed by him, make it untenable and unhelpful to keep Mark and Mars Hill in our network. In taking this action, our prayer is that it will encourage the leadership of Mars Hill to respond in a distinctive and godly manner so that the name of Christ will not continue to be dishonored.

@mygospelfriends Catching up on podcast.  Maybe our church is different, but amazing things are happening with our two different services. Both our “contemporary” and “traditional” services are filled with multi-generational families.  We may be an outlier tho. I believe the secret is in our Bible study times.  We have studies for all ages during both service times.

Question of the Week:

Are you in favor of a church having 1 traditional and 1 contemporary service? Why or Why not?

Emily LaVigne @Mumlavigne · Jul 31
@mygospelfriends if the church has two distinctive demographics where the congregation would be better served with such, then yes.
Marusha @Marusha76 · Jul 31
@mygospelfriends Against, because church isn’t about preferences but to serve God in pleasing and acceptable ways together.
Killer Tortilla @killerTortilla · Jul 31
@mygospelfriends Generally, no. Feels like two different churches in the same building. Focus on ensuring music is doctrinally sound.
Michael Robinson @wm_robinson · Jul 31
@mygospelfriends Im not in favor of it or against it. It just seen to work well. One usually overtakes the other.
Fr. Eddie Green @EdwardBGreen · Jul 31
@Marusha76 @mygospelfriends Matthew 13:52. But ideally together. Obviously high mass with a worship band is my ‘tradition’.
Desiree Johnson @mrsangrygrandma · Jul 31
@mygospelfriends I prefer a blended service. However, I’m not against two services. It’s not a heart issue, just one of musical taste.
Chris Land @jchrisland · Jul 31
@mygospelfriends That does not show unity in a church whatsoever. So I am not for it.
Caretaker Man ‏@baptistfixer Aug 1
@mygospelfriends @Marusha76 I’m not a fan but as long as there is enough time between the two for me to do my thing without crying in pain..
Caretaker Man‏@baptistfixer
@mygospelfriends @Marusha76 …seriously though, i second @Marusha76 . To aim worship @ congregants is abhorrent in the extreme.
Michael Woodard @RMichaelWoodard · Aug 1
@mygospelfriends I’m Ok with it. Today’s traditional was yesterday’s contemporary. Just keep Creator the focus, not creature.
Stephen Bowen ن @countryboy7477 · Aug 1
@mygospelfriends I spoke at a church that did this. It seemed to separate the elders & youth. Bad idea in my view but was working for them.

From Tony Staley:
Hey guys, I just wanted to ask your take on a subject close to my heart. We tweeted back and forth about the Warcraft movie and I would like to know your opinion on RPGs and MMOs.
My wife and I played Warcraft for a few years. We tried not to play while my son was up, but we played a lot after bedtime, 2 – 3 hours a day. We decided to quit when our second child was on the way. For multiple reasons, but primarily time, money and we did feel that the theme was potentially opening a door for demonic activity in our home, as our son did seem to be dealing with fear issues that have since resolved.
I have recently started playing hearthstone for 30 – 60 minutes every couple days and the movie is coming out in the next couple years, so what is your take?

I also think boys who throw a hammer or a shield, among others characters, in their play have good role models to emulate but 1, is hero-play just for boys? 2 considering Nick’s comments on comic and movie depictions of women, are there any good heroes for girls to play as? and 3 do any of them appear in movies you can watch with your family?

“Facebook” – http://www.ozy.com/acumen/is-social-media-killing-your-marriage/32192.article?utm_source=A1&utm_medium=pp&utm_campaign=pp
“Pastor Superdad” – Barnabas Piper interview Trevin: I hear people talking today about the need for a pastor to “pastor his family” first. You say this is bad advice. Why?
Barnabas: It’s bad advice because of what the term “pastor” has come to mean. I know people mean well by using it, but “pastor” is a job title loaded with a thousand expectations.
Pastors are, in many cases, expected to be supermen – morally superior, intellectually sound, theologians, counselors, preachers, teachers, businessmen, accountants, strategists, leaders, etc. If they bring those same sorts of expectations home nobody will benefit. Either they will think too much of themselves or feel like a failure.
Pastors’ kids don’t want superman. They want a present, loving father.

“Name Game” – Is it okay to call yourself a Christian? http://www.relevantmagazine.com/current/op-ed/its-ok-call-yourself-christian#l2EmVytUeWUqsP8Q.01
In Rolling Stone’s upcoming cover story, Mumford demurred when asked if he considered himself a Christian, as a teaser on the magazine’s website revealed. “I don’t really like that word. It comes with so much baggage,” he said, in terms that many fans will relate to. “So, no, I wouldn’t call myself a Christian.”
Mumford, the son of the U.K. founders of the evangelical Vineyard movement
As Mumford went on to explain about such people who call themselves “Christian,” “I think the word just conjures up all these religious images that I don’t really like. I have my personal views about the person of Jesus and who He was. Like, you ask a Muslim and they’ll say, ‘Jesus was awesome’—they’re not Christians, but they still love Jesus.”
“Falling Away” – The number one predictive factor as to whether or not a young Christian will retain his or her faith is whether that person has a meaningful relationship with an older Christian http://aspengroup.com/blog/millennials-need-a-bigger-god-not-a-hipper-pastor
