John Piper is one of my favorite bible teachers, I admire his passion. As you'll see in the two video's below John is very passionate in his charge to us as believers to not get caught up in the mindset of our culture by wasting our lives with mindless entertainment and temporal pleasures.
It is well, with my soul, It is well, with my soul, It is well, it is well, with my soul.

$10,000 Creflo Dollar Challenge Published July 18th, 2008 by Editor in Discernment, Word Faith Yesterday, on the Fighting for the Faith radio program Chris Rosebrough issued the $10,000 Creflo Dollar Challenge.
Rosebrough was responding to Creflo Dollar’s claim that the rich young ruler (Matt 19:16-26) actually went and sold his possessions and as a result God blessed him 100 fold.
Rosebrough believes that Creflo Dollar is twisting God’s word and completely making stuff up. Therefore, Rosebrough is offering $10,000 to the first person who can provide Biblical proof from the New Testament that supports Creflo’s claims about the rich young ruler.

When I look at the world in which we live I'm struck with the reality that it is seriously broken and in such a mess because of sin. Sin has impacted everything in this world. As I watch the news I often wonder how those who do not know Christ make it through each day. What hope do they have when they wake up each morning to find the world in such turmoil? The world has no answers nor do they understand why this world is spinning out of control and all their efforts to fix it are in vain. Where is their hope? Their hope is a false hope. Man cannot fix this worlds problems and they are not going to be fixed by electing a new president, climate change, winning wars or becoming energy independent.
Our hope as beleivers isn't found in this world but in another kingdom. The more I grow as a Christian the more I long to be with Jesus. Don't get me wrong, I love my family but I look forward to leaving this world behind and being able to truly live free from sin. Some call that "escapism", but it is the longing of a true believers heart.
"He who testifies to these things says, "Yes, I am coming quickly " Amen Come, Lord Jesus.
