Miss California’s Comment on Gay Marriage

Carrie Prejean, 21, was very open and honest about her views on gay marriage. She was not very articulate when she answered judge Perez Hilton’s question, but she got her point across.

I agree with Prelean, and I admire her tenacity. She did not crack under pressure and she stated her beliefs no matter the cost. I wonder how many of us will stick to our values and beliefs if we were in her position?

I only hope that when the time comes for me to share my faith, convictions and beliefs, that I will be able to face fear and uncertainty in the face and declare I AM THE CHILD OF THE LORD. I only hope that I will be able to say “here I am Lord send me”.

The Samaritan Woman

John 4:5-20
Eventually he came to Samaria village of Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave his son Joseph. Jacobs well was there; and Jesus tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well around noontime. Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water and Jesus said to her, Please give me a drink. He was alone at the time because his disciples had gone into the village to buy some food.
The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?
Jesus replied “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who I am, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.
But sir you don’t have a rope or a bucket, she said, and this is a very deep well. Where would you get this living water? And besides are you better than this our ancestor Jacob who gave us this well? How can you offer better water the he and his sons and his cattle enjoyed?
Jesus replied, “People soon become thirsty again after drinking this water. But the water I give them takes away thirst altogether. It becomes a perpetual spring within them, giving them eternal life.
Please sir the woman said give me some of that water! Then I will never be thirsty again and I won’t have to come here to haul water.
Go and get your husband, Jesus told her. I don’t have a husband the woman replied.
Jesus said you are right! You don’t have a husband-for you have had five husbands ad you aren’t even married to the man you’re living with now.
Sir the woman said, you must be a prophet. So tell me why it is that you Jews say that Jerusalem is the only place to worship, while we Samaritans claim it is here at Mount Gerizim, where our ancestor worshiped?

My friends… he is risen!!!!

He died so that I might live

Today is Good Friday, but when you think of Jesus suffering and dying, it doesn’t seem like a very good died.

The Crucifixion
So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. 17Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). 18Here they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle.

19Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read:|sc JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 20Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. 21The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, “Do not write ‘The King of the Jews,’ but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.”

22Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”

23When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.

24″Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.”
This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled which said,
“They divided my garments among them
and cast lots for my clothing.”[a] So this is what the soldiers did.

25Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” 27and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.

The Death of Jesus

28Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” 29A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

A Virtuous Woman

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies… Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:10, 30

ACM Entertainer of the Year

Edited

I have been scanning the boards and I can see that a lot of people are upset about last nights award show (me included). Regardless of who I think should have won (Kenny Chesney), I think we all have to look at the argument a different way. Lets look at it form the nomination stand point.

Why do I say that? I say that because, if we as fans say my artist should have won, the Academy can simply say vote for them next time. However, if we look at it from the nomination standpoint, then we can argue that the Academy is not stand by their own rules and standards. Below is the criteria for ETOTY.

Entertainer of the Year:

This award is for the act displaying the greatest competence in all aspects of the entertainment field. Voter should give consideration not only to recorded performance, but also to the in-person performance, staging, public acceptance, attitude, leadership, and overall contribution to the Country Music image. Award to artist.
-taken from ask.com the ACM web-site is down for some reason.

Now after reading that, tell me if all those who were nominated for the award deserved to be.

Ok those are the criteria for the ACM Entertainer of the Year. So how did Carrie Underwood even get nominated? Don’t get me wrong I love Carrie Underwood, but Taylor Swift has shown greater growth, competence and all of the above. In fact she has really represented country music well to the younger country fans. Jamey Johnson, who writes music and has promoted other artists has shown growth, leadership and competency. Rascal Flatts (although there was some questions last year) have shown all of the above.
I think the award is being cheapened. It should not be fan voted. […]
