* Linus Got it Right!



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."

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. - - - Dr. Woodrow Kroll

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

"Let every student be plainly instructed
and earnestly pressed to consider well
the main end of his life and studies is
to know God and Jesus Christ which is
eternal life (John 17:3)."

The Laws and Statutes of Harvard College in 1643

"All scholars shall live religious, godly,
and blameless lives according to the rules
of God's Word, diligently reading the Holy
Scriptures, the fountain of light and truth;
and constantly attend upon all the duties
of religion, both in public and secret."

Over the years, I've learned a few lessons about how to meet a little child for the first time and how not to. I used to stand there all big and adult and come on real enthusiastic, "Hey, how you doing, Billy?" Well, at that point the child promptly turned his head and disappeared somewhere in his mother's leg.

Have you ever seen that happen? I think I scared him to death! When you're only knee high, and an adult reaches down to you, especially as enthusiastically as I did, it probably looks like Goliath reaching for David.

But I'm getting a little smarter in my old age. Now I sort of squat down or I kneel down; get down where he is and look that little guy in the eye and I talk gently, not real loud. I come on soft instead of strong. And believe it or not, I get some smiles and hand shakes back from little Billy. Even big folks respond better to that kind of treatment.

I was at a conference some years ago and a young woman asked me how she could get through to her boss with the Good News about Jesus Christ. The hurdle was that her boss was a homosexual, and he was very guarded when the subject of Jesus came up. And it was further complicated by the fact that this girl is like the picture of innocence. She's the model girl in her youth group, very wholesome looking, doesn't even attend a public school or a Christian school. She's being home schooled as a 16-year-old girl. I showed her the Good News that she has for her boss, and in the process, a little something about herself too.

Our word for today from the Word of God is from 1 Corinthians 6, beginning at verse 9: "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the Kingdom of God?" Who are those folks? Well, "Do not be deceived, neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, or homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers will inherit the Kingdom of God." That's bad news!

(Continued Below!)

Here's the good news, "...and that is what some of you were, but you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the spirit of our God."

That's a glorious word, "...some of you were like this." No one has to be sexually immoral ever again. No one has to be a drunkard, or a swindler, or a homosexual ever again. "You were washed." The slavery of sin was broken by the cleansing of Christ. And that's good news to deliver, like when I was trying to be friendly to a little child.

But the Good News has to be delivered from across from the person, not above the person. See, most of us don't realize we have to come down to their level. Not to do what they do, but to let them know that this is a sinner who's talking to them; a sinner just as in need of saving. And I'm just talking to a sinner in need of saving. I said to this girl, "Have you ever been greedy?" She said, "Oh, yeah." I said, "Have you ever said anything bad about anyone, slandered anyone?" "Well, I guess." "Have you ever let anything be more important than God is?" "Well, yeah." "Well, see, that's idolatry. We're all in this list. We're on the same list as the sexual immoral." You see, often the one that we're trying to reach feels condemned by our presence.

A person tends to back off like a child retreating from that intimidating adult. That may be how they feel. But that's not how they should feel. "I'm a beggar. You're a beggar. I just happen to be a beggar who found bread."

I want to tell you where I found it. I must never forget that I am a sinner, still desperately in need of what Christ did on the cross. I heard a song recently that said, "Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future." I like that!

When I remember who I am, I'll come in on their level. And maybe they'll be willing to listen to a fellow sinner who has found a Savior, who changes what you were into what you can be. And then I won't be a scary giant.
