O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
The Roman emperor Diocletian,
following an edict in 303 A.D.,
failed to stamp the Bible out.
The French Revolution could
not crush it with secular
philosophy (Rousseau, one
of its heroes, converted to
Christianity). The Communists
failed to stamp it out with
atheism and political ideology.
One might well ask why this
book has been banned, burned,
and bludgeoned with such
animosity and scorn. The
great Reformation hero John
Calvin responds in this way:
"Whenever people slander
God's word, they show they
feel within its power, however
unwillingly or reluctantly." - Joe Boot

Thought For The OPEN Mind - Humor From American Culture
If you stop believing what your
professor told you had to be true
and if you start thinking for yourself
you may come to some conclusions
you hadn't expected. You may find
the Bible makes more sense than
you thought or were told to think.
Allow yourself to be ruined, ruined
with regard to what you always
thought could be true. Can you
believe what you don't understand?
You and I believe everyday what
we don't understand unless it comes
to the issue of salvation.

=============== If you stop believing what your professor told you had to be true and if you start thinking for yourself you may come to some conclusions you hadn't expected. You may find the Bible makes more sense than you thought or were told to think. Allow yourself to be ruined, ruined with regard to what you always thought could be true.

=============== There is simply no historic foundation for the position that the Framers intended to build the 'wall of separation' that was constitutionalized in Everson. The 'wall of separation be- tween church and state' is a metaphor based on bad history, a metaphor which has proved useless as a guide to judging. It should be frankly and explicitly abandoned. - - - Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, William Rehnquist
=============== In 1796 the US Supreme Court issued this ruling, "By our form of government, the Christian religion is the established religion, and all sects and denominations of Christians are placed on equal footing." Some 57 years later, after Congress was petitioned to separate Christian principles from government, in 1853 the House Judiciary Committee issued their formal report, including these words: "In this age there is no substitute for Christianity. This was the religion of the founders of the republic, and they expected it to be the religion of their dependents. The great vital, conservative elements in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and divine truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ." - - - Dr. Gerald Beavan
=============== "It is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God and to recognize the sublime truth announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord." -- President Abraham Lincoln
=============== Trust in yourself and you are doomed to disappointment; trust in money and you may have it taken from you; but trust in God, and you are never to be confounded in time or eternity. - D.L. Moody
=============== Faith and love are apt to be spasmodic in the best of minds. Men and women live on the brink of mysteries and harmonies into which they never enter and with their hand on the door latch they die outside. GK Chesterton
There is simply no historic foundation for the position that the Framers intended to build the 'wall of separation' that was constitutionalized in Everson. The 'wall of separation between church and state' is a metaphor based on bad history, a metaphor which has proved useless as a guide to judging. It should be frankly and explicitly abandoned.

One of the classic TV shows of the 1950s and much beloved by an entire generation of boys who grew up in that decade, SILENT SERVICE ran for 78 episodes between 1957--1958. "The SS Tinosa Story" aired in 1957 and starred Murray Hamilton, William Phipps, Brett Halseyand Britt Lomond. The plot unfolds with the USS Tinosa trying to penetrate the sea of Japan using "Hell's Bells" type sonar to cross the guarding mine fields. (In WWII, Tinosa completed twelve war patrols in the Pacific and was credited with sinking 16 enemy ships, totaling 64,655 tons.)
Created by California National Productions, this syndicated anthology television series was based on actual events in the submarine service of the U.S. Navy. The show was hosted by Rear Admiral Thomas M. Dykers, who began each episode with the refrain: "Tonight, we bring you another thrilling episode of Silent Service stories, of warfare under the sea."
Almost all of the episodes focused on the history of specific submarines, including many war stories. Many actors who appeared on The Silent Service, surfaced in other classic television shows including Russell Johnson, DeForest Kelley and Leonard Nimoy, Jerry Paris and Liam Sullivan, Eric Morris, Joe Conley, Mike Connors, Lawrence Dobkin, Ron Hagerthy, Adam Kennedy, Robert Knapp, Paul Richards, Bing Russell, Craig Stevens, Dennis Weaver and Stuart Whitman.
This was a great show that aired when a lot of military-related series were on TV: "Flight", "West Point", "Annapolis Story" and "Navy Log" to name a few. Unfortunately it never went into re-runs so it's very rarely seen -- something we hope to address via Youtube.
The Bible claims to be the Word
of the only true God. In addition
to historical, archaeological, and
scientific proofs, there are numerous
internal proofs. No such evidences
exist for other "sacred writings."
The Bible was written during
1,600 years by 40 prophets, most
of whom lived in diverse cultures,
at different times in history, yet
who never contradict but comple -
ment each other. For the Qur'an,
Muslims must take the word of
Muhammad, just as the Book
of Mormon rests solely upon
Joseph Smith's word. But every
biblical prophet is confirmed
by 39 other prophets.
- Dave Hunt
God designed humans to want
to believe in something. That's
the image of God that is in us.
But as G. K. Chesterton famously
put it, when we reject the God
of the Bible, we don't believe
in nothing; we believe in everything --
including Little Green Men.
