Tom Cruise Freak Show

If you guys really want to see how whacked out Tom Cruise is on Scientology… just watch this video. And watch it soon before it gets yanked off this web site too. YouTube already pulled it for copyright reasons. You’ve got to see this, especially since Scientology doesn’t want you too… it’s all about KSW man!

I would strongly encourage all of you to pray for Tom Cruise – that his eyes would be opened to see the light of the glory of Jesus Christ.

Trevin Wax Interview with N.T. Wright

Here is the full transcript of the interview Trevin conducted with N.T. Wright. This is a really great interview and I hope that every one of you will read through it or listen to the mp3 of it. The mp3 is available for direct download here.

I really appreciated Wright’s response and comments regarding his critics, in particular John Piper. Here is what Wright had to say about Piper and his new book:

Piper is in a different category. He graciously sent me an advance manuscript of his book which is critiquing me and invited my comments on it. I sent him a lengthy set of comments. I’ve only just got on email about two days ago the book in the revised form and I haven’t had a chance to look at it yet. So I cannot say whether he’s being fair or not at this stage.

But I do know that he has done his darndest to be fair and I honor that and I respect that. People have asked me if I’m going to write a response, and the answer is that I don’t know. I’m kind of busy right now. But I maybe should, sooner or later.

I would love to see that response! Pray that Wright will find the time to respond and that this Piper/Wright dialogue will continue to bear fruit for God’s Kingdom.

The breakdown of the interview is also available in individual postings. Here is the breakdown:

The Future of Justification: A Response to N. T. Wright

This is the free PDF of Dr. Piper’s new book that Desiring God Ministries has made available for free online! Wow! I cannot say thank you to John Piper’s ministry enough. I’m just waiting for N.T. Wright to make some of his books available for free in response to Piper’s mass distribution campaign. 😉

BTW, if you missed it or if you cannot read the book right now, here is the interview series where Dr. Piper talks about his critique of N.T. Wright and why he wrote the book:

President Bush attacks the Gospel

Bush: All religions pray to ‘same God’

The link above is the article that was posted by Wordlnet Daily on Oct. 7, earlier this month. In the article President George W. Bush said, “Well, first of all, I believe in an Almighty God, and I believe that all the world, whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, prays to the same God. That’s what I believe. I believe that Islam is a great religion that preaches peace.

Now, I don’t care how much spin someone tries to put on this statement above. I don’t care how much anyone points out that Bush has done many things to help Christians and to help the pro-life cause. I don’t care how much he says, “I’m a Christian.” It doesn’t matter. During this interview, President Bush attacked the Gospel of Jesus, the Messiah, when he said that all religious prayers reach the same God. They don’t!

It is only through the man, Jesus the Christ, that we can speak to “Almighty God.” In the context of telling Christians how to PRAY, the apostle Paul said, “For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Tim. 2:5)

Please pray for President Bush. Pray that his eyes will be open and that his ‘politically correct’ heart will be changed and conformed to the Lord and Saviour that he professes to believe in. Pray that he will not be afraid or confused to tell the Islamic world that their prayers do not reach God and that they must submit their prayers to the mediator between God and men. Pray that our President will not further attack the Gospel and condemn himself as unworthy to receive the Kingdom because he refused to trust in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins and the inheritance of a new heavens and a new earth.

I hope that God’s Spirit will change him. But ever since 9/11, Bush has never decided to put Jesus in the center of his Theological system and I don’t know if he ever will again.

In Christ and In Defense of the Faith,

You Were Made for Earth: An Interview

Trevin Wax over at the Kingdom People blog has conducted a great interview with Michael Wittmer. I encourage everyone to go read it and think about what Dr. Wittmer has to say. Also, Dr. Wittmer has written a book that I’m now very interested in buying. It is called:

Heaven Is a Place on Earth: Why Everything You Do Matters to God
