I just wonder why this gentleman after doing such a wonderful act would sign with lawyers to make money from it? He's spinning it and saying his lawyers are the greedy ones-but if he truly wanted not to profit from this wonderful act why sign with this lawyer or anybody else?

Yet sadly we christains act like this with our wonderful acts we do for God. We try to collect from God by saying Hey God!

1. i am a good person better than that one
2. i gave this up for you
3. i go to church
4.i pray
5. i donate
6. i read the bible
7. i belive in God
8. i believe etc

A heavenly love letter

God's love-letter(Thomas Brooks, "The Crown and Glory of Christianity, or, HOLINESS, the Only Way to Happiness", 1662)The Scripture is God's love-letter to men. Here the lamb may wade--and here the elephant may swim!The blessed Scriptures are of infinite worth and value! Here you may find . . . a remedy for every disease, balm for every wound, a plaster for every sore, milk for babes, meat for strong men, comfort for the afflicted, support for the tempted, solace for the distressed, ease for the wearied, a staff to support the feeble, a sword to defend the weak. The holy Scriptures are . . . the map of God's mercy--and man's misery, the touchstone of truth, the shop of remedies against all maladies, the hammer of vices, the treasury of virtues, the exposer of all sensual and worldly vanities, the balance of equity, the most perfect rule of all justice and honesty.Ah, friends, no book befits your hands like the Bible!The Bible is the best preacher. This book, this preacher will preach to you . . . in your shops, in your chambers, in your closets, yes, in your own bosoms!This book will preach to you at home and abroad; it will preach to you in all companies; and it will preach to you in all conditions. By this book you shall be saved--or by this book you shall be damned! By this book you must live.By this book you must die. By this book you shall be judged in the great day! Oh, therefore . . . love this book above all other books, prize this book above all other books, read this book before all other books, study this book more than all other books! For he who reads much--and understands nothing,is like him who hunts much--and catches nothing."Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long!" Psalm 119:97

The richest man in the world

Having nothing--and yet possessing all things." 2 Cor. 6:10 This is a riddle the world cannot understand. A holy man cannot be a poor man. A holy man is always the richest man. The riches of a Christian have no bottom. All a saint's bags, are bottomless bags. Experience tells us that unholy men's bags, purses, coffers, and mints--may be drawn dry. But the treasury, the riches of a saint--can never be exhausted, for he possesses all things in Christ and with Christ! The Christian has the God of all--he has Him who has all. Though he has nothing in hand--yet he has all thingsin hope. A holy man is the richest man in the world, for he has the great and glorious God engaged by many thousand promises to own him, to bless him, to stand by him, to give grace and glory to him, and to withhold nothing from him that may be good for him. When wicked men brag of their great possessions and riches, a holy man may make his boast of God, and say, "God is mine! God is mine! He is my great all; He is my all in all; and therefore I am richer and a greater possessor than any wicked man in the world--yes, than all wicked men in the world put together!"

Painted holiness

Painted holiness(Thomas Brooks, "The Crown and Glory of Christianity, or, HOLINESS, the Only Way to Happiness", 1662)"Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers; therefore you shall receive the greater damnation." Matthew 23:14Who had a greater name for holiness, and who made a greater show of holiness, and who did more despise and insult other men for the lack of holiness--than the Scribes and Pharisees? And who so miserable now--as they? Pretended holiness will double-damn souls at last!None have so large a portion in hell as hypocrites have.No man at last will be found so miserable, as he who has the name of a saint upon him--but not the divine nature in him; who has a profession of holiness upon him--but no principles of holiness in him; who has a form of godliness--but not the power; who can cry up godliness--but in practice denies it; who is a professor outwardly--but an atheist, a pagan, a devil inwardly.Artificial sanctity is double iniquity. He who professes piety without being pious, and godliness without being godly; he who makes counterfeit holiness a cloak to impiety, and a midwife to iniquity; he who is . . . a Jacob without--and an Esau within, a David without--and a Saul within, a John without--and a Judas within, a saint without--and a Satan within, an angel without--and a devil within, is ripened for the worst of torments!Sirs, do not deceive your own souls! A painted sword shall as soon defend a man, and a painted mint shall as soon enrich a man, and a painted fire shall as soon warm a man, and a painted friend shall as soon counsel a man, and a painted horse shall as soon carry a man, and a painted feast shall as soon nourish a man, and a painted house shall as soon shelter a man--as a painted holiness shall save a man! He who now thinks to put off God with a painted holiness, shall not fare so well at last--as to be put off with a painted happiness. The lowest, the hottest, and the darkest habitation in hell will be his portion,whose religion lies all in shows and shadows. Well, spiritual counterfeits, remember this--it will not be long before Christ will unmask you; before He will uncloak you; before He will disrobe you; before He will take off your masks, your cloaks, and turn your rotten insides outward--to your eternal shame and reproach before all the world!

death of captain america

I grew up with captain america as being one of my favorite superheros(batman,superman,spiderman) and today marvel issued his last comic-he was shot by a sniper. In the world of comics death is not always permament and let us hope so because he is one of the few clean icons kids can look up to in this post 9-11 world.
