Rather than offering the cold stone of past devotionals, regurgitated apologetics or someone else’s musings about the spiritual life, we [must] have bread to offer that is warm from the oven of our intimacy with God.
-Ruth Haley Barton
I posted earlier about the Family Radio folks who are predicting the end of the world on May 21st. Thought some webshots might show you how serious they are.
They also have a Bible ministry where they will send you a Bible if you want it. However, given that the end of the world is coming, they probably won’t be able to fulfill your request. At least they’re consistent.
What will you do on May 21? I’m reminded of Martin Luther’s response when asked what he would do if he knew the end of the world was impending,
“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”
I think in the spirit of the Reformation I may follow Luther and do exactly that? Who’ll join me?
