GOD on the TONIGHT SHOW

God could win the world in a micro-second
He could hold lightning bolts in one hand and shoot them out
He could heal every person that was sick instantly
He could provide money for all the poor
He could make appearances on the Tonight Show

Question : Then why dosen't HE ?
Answer : Because it would not "save" the lost sinner or better said as "could" not save
WHY ? Fill in the blanks _ _ _ __ ___ _ _ ____
God's Nature - HOLY , SINLESS, CHANGES NOT,
Man's nature -- corrupt, sinful, unable to change, death resulting , sin (separation) from God
TWO KEY INGREDIENTS -- Shedding of Sinless Blood and Faith in that Blood

So - all the magic shows and "signs" that could be done does not "save" a lost soul , a soul made in the image of God, lost and separated by sin could only be "redeemed" bought back , restored in the image of God thru the Shedding of Sinless (God's) own Blood and only on the basis of Faith in what God said about that Blood as the Substitution for your death - His Life paying for your death because of sin -

The world does not need more tv side shows of religion but by example of lives crucified to the cross and alive thru His Spirit, living by faith and examples of a life of "CHRIST WITHIN"

AMEN!

Passing-thru, have you ever heard the song "The don't tell you" by a singer named Dion? My mom has a tape of his from the eighties (I believe he left the faith for Catholicism more recently). The chorus goes soemthing like

They won't tell you
What you need to know:
Jesus freed you.

Oh, now I can't remember the words clearly. It talks about the TV and how you won't find about God on the news/comedey/etc. Okay, it's bugging me now that I can't remember the words! I want so much to share it...I like it so much, because after all, I don't watch TV!!! I feel bad for those who sit in front of it all day long...what a life.
