UNITE By O.C. Supertones

Philippians 2:1-4

"Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, (2) fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. (3) Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. (4) Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others."

This song that I posted (hopefully correctly), echoes the same thing Paul was writing to the Philippians. Christians should be "like-minded" in the general sense. Unfortunately, there are many divisive issues in the church. This post is an effort to address ways to unite together.

I have talked to many and read many responses about people unhappy with how blogs are operating. There is a lot of attacking. This is not in reference to one person specifically nor a post or blog. This is a problem I witnessed in the world and within the blogging community I visit.

I actually started my blog because a group of friends started a facebook group talking about religion. Of course we all did not agree on everything, but we referenced scripture to explain our reasoning. I have noticed blogging that there are only a few that quote scripture in their reasoning.

So the question is how do we become like-minded with so much division, while upholding God's truths? Are there limits to what you can agree to disagree on? What actions do you take when there is a disagreement between you and someone else?

Asceticism Part II

Wednesday, April 23, 2008 6 comments

Has anyone else noticed how society has become more humanistic? For instance, global warming (if you believe it) is caused by man, the destruction of hurricane Katrina was not caused by nature, but man's fault in building the dikes.

It seems easy to take credit for good, but now man is is even taking credit for the bad. I am not one of these people that say "God is punishing us" when something bad happens, but are we giving ourselves too much credit? We wonder why government is getting bigger, it is because we think we can solve everything.

Another Seinfeld Resemblance

Tuesday, April 22, 2008 0 comments

The character George Costanza on Seinfeld played a loser type roll, yet somehow he ended up with a position for the New York Yankees. He was the Assistant to the Traveling Secretary. He did not do anything except offer some comical suggestions. This leads me to the comparison...

Isiah Thomas has been fired from the New York Knicks, but he still has a job within the organization. This article talks about how Thomas is banned from communicating with any of the players and only reports to the new president because he has nobody who answers to him. In addition, he does not have an official title. This whole story with Isiah Thomas is right out of the play book of Seinfeld and George Costanza.

Top of the Muffin to You

This is a clip from my favorite show Seinfeld. The reason I like it is because of the craziness. I would never expect anyone to take the show ideas seriously into consideration, especially a major company. That was until I was flipping through the channels and seen a commercial for this...

I wonder how they are selling and if the show can claim any rights to it? And did they hire a cleaner? (if you didn't understand that last part, check out this video)

Asceticism is the practice of self denial for religious reasons. This is a center theme within Christianity. Pride is denounced and humbleness and humility is encouraged. In todays world that is viewed as a weakness. To succeed, one must take on the humanistic view and do whatever it takes to take care of numero uno.

Proverbs 27:2 "Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips."

In the above video, Nichole Nordeman sings her popular song "legacy". She is my favorite female artist, particularly because of this song. She makes people think about how they are living. Not necessarily when we leave earth, but possible relationships that we have had. I personally have lost connection with many friends throughout the years and I am approaching the end of my college years and soon to be looking for new employment which may cause an end to even more. I can wonder what impression I have left on them. This is not a prideful remark, just as Nichole Nordeman contrasts the flesh liking accolades, but more importantly is your reflection of Christ. Did I stand for Christ? Was I loving? or was I a hypocrite?

I guess I am attempting to open the thought of evaluating your own life and what you are living for. Is it self glorification or the glorification of Jesus Christ? And what will people remember you by.

Oprah's Deception

Tuesday, April 8, 2008 11 comments

I stumbled upon this video on another blog and decided to post it here since there is more people that visit this site that have a religious interest. I for one have been very concerned with the power and influence Oprah has over people. However, I was unaware of her views on religion since I do not watch her program. If I ever get the chance to meet her I will point out Exodus 20:5 which says "ForI, the Lord your God, am a jealous God".

I think Christians need to be aware of these blasphemous uprisings. In which I also include the movement of "Obamamania". Anyone who is referred to as messiah or savior needs to be taken seriously and with caution. Philosopher and Christian hater Frederick Nietzsche also made similar references and said "god is dead". For the record, Nietzsche went crazy and died.

God is all powerful and does not need us, but we are called to defend with the armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-20).

2 Timothy 2:3 "You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ."

Matthew 5:18 "For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled."

Will We Remember?

Sunday, April 6, 2008 5 comments

Revelation 21:4

"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

This is one verse out of Revelation chapter 21 which describes heaven. I have heard many people exclaim anticipation for this moment and rightfully so. However, I have one question whenever I hear this. Will we remember loved ones who were not saved or just not be saddened by it? I know some things go unexplained or beyond our comprehension, but I was looking for other thoughts.

Racial Division

Thursday, April 3, 2008 2 comments

I just watched a screening of the documentary "Indoctrinate U". It is about the liberal bias that takes place in the public universities. I recommend everyone watch it. It made me laugh at the ridiculousness of liberals, frustrated at academia, and frightened at the examples that this stuff is really happening.

Something that really made me weary is the segment of race. After all of the ruckus over Obama's pastor's comments, which I think showed the strong racial tension that still exists. After watching I am now aware that this is happening on college campuses. Universities always talk about diversity and equality. Neither is happening. There have been some extreme allegations against people concerning racism that have been proven to be completely false, but not before universities spent thousands of taxpayer's money.

Another example is that some universities have segregated dorms. Here is an article about it. The same people who promote diversity are also depriving it. In my opinion, the most nonracial atmosphere I have witnessed was during my time in the Navy. We were forced to live together and depend on each other.

I am expecting a serious racial tension soon. I hope it does not happen, but it is so obvious after the statements made by Rev. Wright. Everyone was divided and very sensitive to the issue. Do you agree that racism is a big issue? Do you foresee any problems?
