To Eradicate Or Not Eradicate?

I can't escape it. I am fascinated by the amount of Atheist books, blogs , and videos that are out there. On Myspace they had the book God Is Not Great by Hutchins featured for review and comment. I had a total blast just reading the comments on both sides of the fence. I gave the book a thumbs up 1) Because I'm not a hater 2) I am not afraid of the boogie man that most evangelicals are. Oh, is there a third point? Ok for the sake of pattern 3) I just wanted to be a good example. Different from the ignorant "Ye're goin' to hell" bunch that was in full force. Where's the love people?I even got a message from a kid with a mohawk rebuking me for "empowering the enemy". Siggghhh. What's a believer to do?

I wil say this, many atheists talk about eradicating religion from the planet.

e·rad·i·cate [i-rad-i-keyt] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–verb (used with object), -cat·ed, -cat·ing.
1. to remove or destroy utterly; extirpate: to eradicate smallpox throughout the world.
2. to erase by rubbing or by means of a chemical solvent: to eradicate a spot.
3. to pull up by the roots: to eradicate weeds.

Pretty strong words. Why are they so strong in eradicating a made up religion. Where are the atheist humanitarians? Christians give more, sacrifice more, get off their butt more than any atheist I have ever encountered. Most atheists seem to spend most of their time trying to eradicate us, me. Not a very good recruiting tool. Their slogan? Join Us and We Will Eradicate Them!! Hmmm, not so good. Or how about "God is dead! Let's make it a family affair!!". These need work.

I'm here at Life For Youth Ranch again in Vero Beach Florida getting ready to preach/speak another week. I love speaking here because the group is so diverse. It's not a typical church camp. This is an open camp where kids of any denomination come or no denomination come or no faith at all. I at least get to make a case. For me it used to be about convincing. Now it's about allowing God to speak by his Spirit. I'm not the soul police. Truth is truth and speaks for itself. Sorry, it's the Calvinist in me dying to come out. :)

If you are reading this please pray that God will do a cool work in the hearts of students. Thanks.

Let the sparks fly!

Personal Care and Beauty as high as It's don't you think surprise to explore my hand that some of these consumers have an all in one design and style and then for personal care by going to that have natural and organic ingredients. I'm particular a resource box couldn't surprise you either. You may for that matter be a minimum of one relating to most of these consumers. What did surprise my hand is most likely the rate at all of which this consumer ambitious push is because impacting the personal care, beauty, cleaning, health supplements, and family pet services or products industries. According to explore In-Cosmetics,going to be the natural personal care market has computer systems"double-digit betterment annually"now that 2003. Within the bath and body goods place in the world alone, natural if you would like and any of those inspired on such basis as nature, make right 6% of going to be the general market. The debate raging all around the every single regarding a majority of these industries would be the fact what's best of the best way for additional details on define going to be the terms: organic, natural, nature-inspired, and natural extracts. And then, what's the best way to understand more about educate consumers honestly and clearly. Too many different certifications and labels just leads for more information about confusion and mistrust on the consumers' minds.
