# This was ALMOST sub-titled “Thoughts you have when you’re not busy thinking about anything else.


# Folks who have felt the power of God–the REAL power of God–enter their lives KNOW that there is a GOD.  These folks wonder why those who are LOST cannot see or know this.  Well, for one reason: they are lost.  Most do NOT believe in God.  Others not only do NOT believe in God, they do NOT believe in the power of God–mostly because they do not have ANY experiences which demonstrate this awesome power to them.

# Natural disasters BEYOND the control of man (earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, etc.) AT ONE TIME were almost universally referred to as “Acts of God“–even by insurance companies (who are not the biggest repositories of faith in the cosmos).  However, one rarely hears the phrase “Act of God” anymore. Why is this?  There are probably a number of good explanations which could be put forth and then EXAMINED by others for their soundness.  HOWEVER, no such explanations will be forthcoming from THIS corner; our viewpoint seems to have been fairly clear on the matter over the past NEARLY ten years we’ve been writing this collection of scribblings.

# What were at one time referred to as ‘Acts of God’ are almost ALL referred to NOW–during the last days–as ‘natural disasters’–AS IF God had no hand in that which happens ‘naturally.’


# Speaking of ‘repositories,’ the name of the Canton, Ohio newspaper is an unusual one.

The Canton Repository

Just something that popped into one’s mind when writing about ‘repositories.’

# While talking to a good acquaintance (who is a member of an idol-worshiping PAGAN group), it was mentioned that the acquaintance was doing “good things.”

“You know, you keep this up and MAYBE one day you’ll go to heaven?”

“What?  Become a Christian?  NEVER!  Too many rules…”

“There’s not that many rules to follow.  And Jesus Himself commented on the circumstance.”

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
–Matthew 11:29-30

“Regardless, it sounds like a LOT of do’s and don’ts to me…”

# Talking to that SAME acquaintance later that same week, it was mentioned (after HE mentioned something that he had done which was ESPECIALLY egregious)  that ‘he was hopeless.’

I’m kinda surprised to hear YOU say that.

“What’s that?”

“I didn’t think ANYTHING qualified as ‘hopeless’ in YOUR book…”

“I don’t know that I’d dwell too much on it.  It’s just something you say when you can’t think of anything else to say that’s appropriate.”

# And THAT’S all of the Random Thoughts for THIS edition!

DOES the reader ever have a stray or random thought?

WHAT does he do with them?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
