Kopp Disclosure
(John 3:19-21)

@#$%

Get out the empty milk bottles and rush to your local filling station!

Gas has dipped below $4 a gallon!

What a relief.

I was gettin' worried.

@#$%

BHO is in Iraq!

He's gonna spend a few days figuring out how to be Commander-in-Chief!

What a relief.

I was gettin' worried.

@#$%

Gas.

BHO.

Greg Norman and Michelle Wie.

@#$%

Speaking of disappointments, any connection between the PCUSA and Biblical Christianity as upheld by its own constitution so far yet so precariously is increasingly coincidental.

@#$%

I've been to Geneva, Jerusalem, Louisville, and Rome.

What's the connection?

That makes me as qualified to be President of the World Council of Churches, Chaplain of the Western Wall, Stated Clerk of General Assembly, and Pope as BHO for President of the USA.

@#$%

Actually, I'm a lot more qualified for those jobs than BHO for the Oval Office because I've spent a lot more time in those places than he has in Iraq or, uh, any, uh, place where, uh, guys learn how to be the, uh, Commander-in-Chief.

@#$%

Lotteries.

Gambling.

O.K., it makes sense now.

We're going to roll the dice with America's future.

@#$%

Speaking of stewardship, some guy in Florida has started the "Not One Penny" movement in the PCUSA (see attached).

That's not one penny from people who love Jesus as attested in Holy Scripture and upheld by the PCUSA's own constitution so far yet so precariously for people who advocate, enable, and accommodate the opposite.

He thinks it's unconscionable to expect or even ask people who still love Jesus to direct parts of their tithes, offerings, gifts, and voluntary per capita apportionments to people whose proclamations, programs, and ministries are anathema to Biblical Christianity.

@#$%

I think it makes sense.

If I'm not gonna eat at Taco Bell because it's not fair to tomato pickers, I'm not gonna feed programs and ministries which insult the holiness of Jesus.

They say tomato, I say...

@#$%

Of course, lots of folks are trying to rationalize financial support for those doing their worst for the Gospel; and some of 'em are really nasty.

Even some folks who still kinda like Jesus as long as He doesn't conflict with their ecclesiastical, vocational, and cultural comfort zones are getting mad at that guy in Florida.

They're coming up with all kinds of better ways which they've never tried and won't really try now to counter the causes of the "Not One Penny" movement.

@#$%

Do you remember Jesse Ventura?

Wrestler.

Governor of Minnesota.

Kinda nutty.

Like you and me.

Anyway, he wrote, "It's tough for me to see the apathy of people who complain about everything, but don't want to do anything to change it. I want to tell them, 'Why are you complaining, when you won't work with me! Why won't you help me to change things?'"

@#$%

O.K., I'm helping the guy in Florida; and before you start bantering and moaning to me about what we're doing, I'd like to remind you of what Moody said to a guy (mainliner) who objected to his methods of evangelism: "I prefer the way I do it to the way you don't do it."

@#$%

It's like the last great President of PTS said to a bunch of seminarians on the 5th floor of Baltimore's Hilton Hotel at a GA over 30 years ago: "I don't care what you do! Just do something for Christ's sake!"

@#$%

You may want to check out Matthew 7:21 and related texts.

@#$%

Blessings and Love!
