Description

This group will display writings and poetry on various topics of interest for Christians. I am a member of the Church of Christ. Even though I have been in the church since childhood, I did stray away throughout my teenage years as well as a vast majority of my adult years. What I found was a lot of churches that preached false doctrine. Hearing good or correct doctrine is like eating food. When you are accustomed to eating good food, you'll know bad food when you taste it. When you are accustomed to hearing sound doctrine (teachings), you know bad (or misleading) doctrine when you hear it - no matter or how good or sincere the person giving it is. You do not have to know the bible backwards and forwards to recognize it. I am not trying to preach or do anything like that. At the congregation that I attend, I put together our weekly bulletins. We have some great articles, poetry, and essays sometimes -- and I wanted to share them with as many people as I could. Hope you enjoy!!!

After The Death of Jesus -- No Honor From Men

After their death, the lives of former presidents have been honored by various ceremonies of remembrance. For example, we were impressed with the pageantry with which President Ronald Reagan was remembered, and moved by the warm sentiments expressed in his honor, not only by the leaders of our country, but world leaders as well.
As the people of America, we do well to recognize and appreciate the public service of those who have held our land?s highest office. As my wife and I watched the memorials for President Reagan on television, I could not help contrasting the circumstances of his death with the death of our Savior that occurred nearly 2,000 years ago.
When Jesus died, there were no parades in the streets. No caissons rolled down the streets. No flags were lowered. No government employees received a day off work with pay. No dignitaries wrote glowing letters of eulogy or delivered heartfelt speeches in praise of the One who died. No trumpeter played ?Taps.? No rifle brigade fired a 21-gun salute. The world did not pause in its daily activities to reflect upon our Savior?s accomplishments. In fact, the world paid very little attention at all.
When the Son of God and Creator of the universe died on the cross at Golgotha, no regiment of crisply-uniformed soldiers in dress attire stepped forward to bear His remains away. Instead, a lone man named Joseph presented himself to the governmental authorities, asking for the privilege of removing Jesus? body for burial (cf. Matthew 27:57-60; Mark 15:42-47). Only one other man ? Nicodemus ? joined Joseph in the solemn task of embalming the body of Christ, wrapping it in linen, and laying it in a hillside tomb (John 19:38-42).
When Jesus died, the ruling powers did not take counsel together to determine how best to acknowledge Him publicly, or what honors to bestow upon Him in death. Instead, the leaders of the Jews went to the Roman governor Pontius Pilate to demand that guards be set over Jesus? gravesite, so that His disciples could not perpetrate a hoax by stealing His body, then claiming He was resurrected. Pilate complied with their wishes by furnishing a detachment of soldiers, telling them, ?Make it as secure as you know how? (Matthew 27:62-66 - NKJV).
When Jesus? body was committed to the tomb, there were no endless lines of mourners filing past to pay their final respects as He lay in state. Because of the Sabbath, even Joseph and Nicodemus left Him without fanfare following their hasty ministrations. On the morning of the third day, when Christ had already departed the grave, only three women ? Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome (Mark 16:1), came to visit the place where He had been buried. When the women reported His rising, only two of Jesus? apostles ? Peter and John, came to see the marvel for themselves (John 20:1-10).
It is indeed sad to think how little honor from men Jesus garnered at His death in comparison to many other men who have lived upon the earth. But it is of no consequence, for the day is coming when every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (Philippians 2:9-11; Romans 14:11).
The honor of men for the Savior of mankind may be late in coming, but on that awesome day, it will never be more fitting for the glorious Lamb of God (Revelation 5:6-14).

TAKE A WALK AROUND YOURSELF

When you're criticizing others, and are finding here and there

  A fault or two to speak of, or a weakness you can tear;

  When you're blaming some one or accusing one of pelf,

  It's time that you went out to take a walk around yourself.

      There's a lot of human failures in the average of us all,

  And lots of human failures in the average of us all,

  But when we think of evil men should lay upon the shelves,

  It's time that we all went out to take a walk around ourselves,

  We need so often in this life this balancing set of scales,

  Thus seeing how much in us wins and how much in us fails;

  But before you judge another, just lay him on the shelf,

  It would be a splendid plan to take a walk yourself
