God saved us from Himself, through Himself, by Himself, and for Himself.

Jeremy,
Your post today illustrates the value of pith:
Sometimes less is MORE! You have said much in just a few words. God bless you, brother!

Pith? Pith is good. Good, Pith, good! My kingdom for more Pith!

Reminds me of Col1:15-18
15He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For byhim all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things were created through him and for him. 17And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. (ESV)

john rush: You are a riot! (Uh...do you have a kingdom?)

John (Babri),
I almost referenced those verses. but decided against it because I knew my readers were smart enough to connect the dots!

John said...

LOL I hope I wasn't insulting the intelligence of you readers! Its just one of my favorite passages.

Joe said...

john: Are you suggesting that we actually have intellegence?

Joe said...

Jeremy: Actually, the more I read your post, the more awed I am.

So could we call Jeremy the Dark Lord of the Pith?

Okay...I'm going to go beat myself up for making lame jokes.

Jeremy,
What a neat post - Calvinists, non-Calvinists, and probably even Arminians could agree with it. A simple, pithy post is profitably peaceful. (Now I need to wipe the spit off my screen).

Jeremy Weaver said...

Mike,
This post is actually the most Calvinistic I have posted.

mike said...

Jeremy,
Here is a perfect example of the perplexity of christian diversity: you see that beautiful statement as Calvinistic (and all that goes along with TULIP), I don't. What a fellowship!

John Rush said...

Come back, Jeremy. Come back! Where are you?
