Next month is the movie I am waiting for is finally coming out:  Avengers Assemble!!!!


Ipad and other tablets(as well as smartphones)in Church worship

   I was the first and only in the church I an attending to first use the ipad in the worship. I only use the Bible app,Evernote and  commentaries while the bible reading and preaching only. The scriptures  that pertain to its proper usage are:

All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything.( 1cor 6:12)

1 Corinthians 8:4-14

English Standard Version (ESV)
4 Therefore, as to the eating of food offered to idols, we know that “an idol has no real existence,” and that “there is no God but one.” 5 For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth—as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”— 6 yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.
7 However, not all possess this knowledge. But some, through former association with idols, eat food as really offered to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled. 8 Food will not commend us to God. We are no worse off if we do not eat, and no better off if we do. 9 But take care that this right of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. 10 For if anyone sees you who have knowledge eating[a] in an idol's temple, will he not be encouraged,[b] if his conscience is weak, to eat food offered to idols? 11 And so by your knowledge this weak person is destroyed, the brother for whom Christ died. 12 Thus, sinning against your brothers[c] and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ. 13 Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble.

1 Corinthians 10:31

English Standard Version (ESV)
31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

 So when I use the Ipad I apply these Biblical principles:
  A. Use it properly not use other apps to draw me away from worship.
  B. If a yunger christain, a older christain set in their ways or children-not to use the ipad but a  physical Bible and notebook..
 C.  Use the ipad to lead you to Christ and not away from Christ by filling it with apps that are aids and not hinderances encouraging you in particular sins or just the sin of wasting time.etc

Pediasure and the gospel

My little three year old son loves pediasure. We keep them on top of the refrigerator. He threw a tantrum one day wanting his pediasure. Asking and pleading with me as he looked up seeing his precious pediasure. This got me to realize that we should be like my son not with tantrums but:
1. But in prayer plead and beg with God
2.To depend on God to provide what is best for us (May not be pediasure we want but it will be something better or something we exactky need at that momment)
Luke 12:5-7English Standard Version (ESV)5 But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell.[a] Yes, I tell you, fear him! 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies?[b] And not one of them is forgotten before God. 7 Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Philippians 4:6English Standard Version (ESV)6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
