Regarding the “unfailing love” question, the thing that really throws me for a loop is the preposition “of” in “of my unfailing love”.  If it didn’t have the “of”, it’d probably be easier to digest.  Like if it said, “You are my Unfailing Love,” that’d be easier to understand.  The “of” suggests that it comes from us imperfect people which makes it hard to comprehend.

I’d still like to hear more thoughts on my second question too (the line “When you and I choose to believe” in the song “Made to Worship”).

I’ve been really diggin’ “Amazing Grace” on the new CD!  I’m pretty confident Hanley (Xanga: randomranting) and Aaron Lee would like it!  Take a listen!

The new chorus:

My chains are gone
I’ve been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love
Amazing grace

Does anyone want to see ApologetiX: The Christian Parody Band in Diamond Bar on Sunday night?

Sunday, October 1, 2006

(please plan to arrive 15-30 minutes prior)

Northminster Presbyterian Church
400 Rancheria Road
Diamond Bar, CA 91765

Sponsored by: Stanton and Marissa Letscher

Exit Hwy. 57 at Temple. Head east to Golden Springs Road. Take a right a Golden Springs. Go approx. 1.5 miles, turn left on Rancheria Rd. The church is at the corner of Golden Springs and Rancheria.

If Spike Lee really cares about the poor, he should make a documentary on the poor of the world and those in other crises (Africa, Middle East, etc.).  The poor in America are soooo rich compared to the poor in the rest of the world.  This is not to say I don’t feel for them.  They just don’t know what really bad is.  If they think they’ve seen the “stuff” hit the fan, they “ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.”

The Padres beat the Diamondbacks 12-4 tonight (Thursday night)!

FIGHT ON and BEAT THE (Washington State) COUGARS!

    i fully understand your ‘unfailing love’ question.however, there is precendence in God’s Word where the writer uses hyperbole to represent his desire. though David never says it is his own unfailing love for God within the Psalms, David does say stuff like “I have set the Lord always before me” (Psalm 16:8) and we know that is not true. i think we can give chris tomlin some artistic latitude in his songwriting.

    OK as far as ‘Made to Worship’ goes, again, I think we can give mr. tomlim some artistic latitude in his songwriting. i am certain that mr. tomlim cherishes that God is sovereign and God does choose us. but from a phenomenological perspective it does ‘seem’ like we choose God. we all know that the sun does not literally rise and set because it is the earth that revolves around the sun and not the other way around. yet in scripture, we read that it is the sun that stood still in Joshua. it ‘seems’ to have stood still. we cannot fault scripture for being against science (though many do) because it is phenomenological – it is written in some parts according to the perspective of human writers. and we cannot fault good ‘ol mr. tomlin for being unscriptural because he wrote something that sounds like it is heretical to our own dogma.
