Wednesday June 14, 2006

Video: Lisa Nunley has linked to two videos showing some sad, pathetic clips taken from the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Click and see “Why Jan Crouch wants Your Grandmother’s Grocery Money…” Click and wonder how people can continue to watch this circus!

Politics: Frank Page has been elected as President of the Southern Baptist Convention. I don’t know who he is, but a good number of good men seem to be quite pleased with the news. As we’d expect, BP News reports.

    Why Those Who Seem Most Likely to Come, Never Come At All

    It is something we have all observed at one time or another and something we have all wondered about. Why is it that those who seem most likely to come to Christ so often reject him?
