WHAT DUH MIGHT

 LOOK LIKE

 

HOW TO DUH

 

WHAT NOT TO SAY

YOU WERE CREATED

FOR A PURPOSE  - “Duh”

Ephesians 2: 8-10

8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

 

 

 

YOU ARE REQUIRED TO LOVE THE WHOLE BODY OF CHRIST
 JESUS DID NOT START A DENOMINATION
“Duh”
John 17:22-23
I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
John 15:16-17
16You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.This is my command: Love each other.
 
YOU ARE TO BE LIGHT AND SALT
“Duh”
Matthew 5:13-16

"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.

 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

YOU HAVE BEEN SET APART HE HAS EQUIPPED YOU
YOU ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE

“Duh”

Jeremiah 1:4-9

…."Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."

"Ah, Sovereign LORD," I said, "I do not know how to speak; I am only a child."

But the LORD said to me, "Do not say, 'I am only a child.' You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the LORD.

Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, "Now, I have put my words in your mouth.

YOU WILL BE PERSECUTED

“Duh”

John 15:18-20

"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: 'No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also.

 

IF NOT ME WHO?
 

IF NOT NOW WHEN?

THREE ABSOLUTES

1.      The longer you live the older you get

2.      If you live long enough you will not get out of this alive (Rapture is the exception)

3.      The death rate among people in Hunter Mountain, NY is 100%

 

WHAT IF THE BIBLE IS TRUE!

 

WILL YOU HEAR

Well done, my good and

faithful servant!” (Matthew 25:23)

 

OR

“… I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!”   (Matthew 7:23)

That’s what Christians do now

By Don Wildmon | AFA Founder/Chairman

Originally published August, 1999

 

In 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court said it was OK to kill unborn babies. Since then, we have killed morethan the entire population of Canada. And it continues. A woman’s choice? Half of those who have died in their mothers’ wombs have been women. They didn’t have achoice. It is called abortion.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now.

First it was in dingy, dirty theaters. Then, convenience stores. Then, grocery stores. Then on television. Now it is in the homes of millions via the Internet. It is called pornography.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now.

They called it no-fault. Why should we blame anyone when something so tragic happens? Haven’t they already suffered enough? Half of the marriages in America end this way. The children suffer. The family breaks down. It is called divorce.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now.

At one time it was a perversion. We kept it secret. We offered help and hope for those who practised it. Now it is praised. We have parades celebrating it, and elected officials give it their blessings. Now it is endowed with special privileges and protected by special laws. Even some Christian leaders and denominations praise it. It is called homosexuality.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now.

It used to be an embarrassment. A shame. Now a third of all births are to mothers who aren’t married. Two-thirds of all African-American children are born into a homewithout a father. The state usually pays the tab. That is why we pay our taxes, so that the government can take the place of parents. After all, government bureaucrats know how to raise children much better than parents do. It is called illegitimacy.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home That’s what Christians do now.

At one time it was wrong. But then the state decided to legalize it, promote it and tax it. It has ripped apart families and destroyed lives. But just look at all the money the state has raised. No longer do we have to teach our children to study and work hard. Now we teach them they can get something for nothing. We spend millions encouraging people to join the fun and excitement. Just look at the big sums that people are winning. They will never have to work again! It is called gambling.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home.That’s what Christians do now.

Not long ago, Christians were the good guys. We are now depicted as the bad guys – greedy, narrow-minded hypocrites.The teacher can’t have a Bible on her desk but can have Playboy. We don’t have Christmas and Easter holidays – just winter and spring break. We can’t pray in school but can use foul language. It’s called being tolerant.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home.That’s what Christians do now.

Yes, all these things came to pass within 30 years. Where were the Christians? Why, they were in church. All these things are for someone else to deal with. Times have changed. Involvement has been replaced with apathy.

But don’t blame me. I didn’t do anything. I go to church,the minister preaches, I go home. That’s what Christians do now.


DUH???!!!
