I got a good chuckle out of this today. Gene Veith shares a video where Sen. Clinton’s claims to having been fired at by snipers while on a visit to Bosnia. CBS provides the rest of the true story. A great statement on the news footage says that it calls into question whether all the experience Sen. Clinton has been claiming to have over Obama is mostly imagined:

Purgatorio has a helpful summary of the Prosperity Gospel, which is no gospel at all! In case you’re wondering what I think of Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Joel Osteen, etc. See the picture below:
And he quotes some of these folks:
Paula White “God has spoken to you and right now I want you to obey that God is speaking to send in a sacrificial seed. He’s telling you an instruction of the Lord, an illogical instruction. Well, Paula you don’t understand. I’m telling you, I need to be obedient to the Lord. Cause God even spoke to people, their vacation money, savings, CD’s, and investments and you looked at it and said, ‘But God, this is it.’ And God spoke to you and He told you to sow that into the kingdom of God. And when you obey, that which God has promised to you shall come to pass.”
Creflo Dollar “…First of all, we don’t have two Rolls-Royces. And secondly, the one Rolls-Royce that was purchased was purchased by the donors, or the members of the church, and it was a surprise to me.”
Kenneth CopelandKenneth Copeland speaks in front of his jet he told his ministry would not be used for anything “not becoming to you Lord Jesus.”
Benny Hinn “I place a curse on every man and every woman that would stretch his hand against this anointing; I curse that man who dares to speak a word against this ministry… ”
The Usual Suspects
I just wanted to write a quick line to ask all you bloggers out there to stop doing this…Please stop apologizing to your ‘readers’ that you have not written anything in a while. They are probably not chomping at the bit to read as much as you are to write. If they are, you should do them the service of making your blog capable of being syndicated. That way if they want to read what you have to say they don’t have to keep checking your blog. They can just get your thoughts when you have time to share them.
Speaking from experience, as I have said ‘I am sorry’ to my (mostly contrived) readers, you will do yourself a service as well when you don’t feel the pressure and weight of writing something. So many times the blogosphere can be merely verbiage. Rather than saying something that will be thoughtful and encouraging, too many times it is just words words words wor…worried bloggers who think that they will be drowned among the sirens of other blogs…found out to be a farce.
Stop apologizing. Start thinking. Sometimes writing.
(BTW, this is not me trying to ease a guilty conscience…Jimbo!!)
