I would have posted earlier but needed to respond to a few comments on the
Mormon Posts[Mormons-are-not-Christians]. I'm no apologist but I at least had to state the facts. That's about all I'll do with that for now. Not enough rambling going on here.
One of the things I'd like to talk about is what Jesus says in Matthew 16. He and the disciples are going along and they stop to talk. Jesus says, "Who do you say that I am" and Peter answers, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." And he really nails it. Jesus says He will build the church upon Peter, good stuff. In less time than it takes to lie in politics, Peter gets in the way, Jesus equates him to Satan, and then says to the group, "Anyone who wishes to follow after Me must deny himself, pick up his cross, and follow me."
So I'm mulling over just what does it mean to deny myself?
I'm a ruminator so...I'll mull a little more. Please give me any insight you might have. I'd love to hear it.
I'll be out tomorrow most of the day so maybe I can get up before 5:30 to blog a little. Or maybe tomorrow night. But that's Date Night and, well, that trumps blogging. I mean REALLY trumps it. Like football is better than soccer trumps. Or sweet Iced Tea is better than not sweet. Or home made popcorn is better than microwave trumps. That'll do.
Oh, and one week from yesterday we get to have Brent blog. At least once. Looking forward to it.
