    What most people don’t know about Ironside,
    He had what amounts to an 8th grade education if I remember correctly. He started preaching in tents as a child. He was personable and associated with the lower class. He was a great storyteller. He was dispensational and involved with Dallas Seminary. When the Seminary was in great financial need he prayed with Chafer and others that God owned the cattle on a thousand hills and if He wouldn’t mind selling some to help the DTS survive. Moments later the door opened and they were informed a Texas cattle rancher had donated a large sum. He was of such a brilliant mind he was asked to be a professor at DTS. We need more like him today.
    BTW, J Vernon McGee had very similar theology, don’t let the accent fool you.

    All of the issues boil down to one: Looking to ourselves for evidence. Instead, we are to believe Him who has promised. Our salvation rests on His promise to save us if we believe. Ask God to reveal to you, not your faithfulness to God, but HIS faithfulness to you.

    A federal court in Canada has ruled that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s use of the Emergencies Act against protesters in 2022 was unconstitutional, according to a judicial review released on Tuesday.

    Trudeau utilized the Emergencies Act to stop truckers from protesting against the Canadian government’s COVID-19 lockdown restrictions and vaccine mandates. Trudeau’s use of the act was not legal and “not justified,” Federal Court Justice Richard Mosley wrote in the decision, according to the Canadian Constitutional Foundation (CCF).

    “I conclude there was no national emergency justifying the invocation of the Emergencies Act and the decision to do so was therefore unreasonable,” Mosley wrote in his decision. “The decision to issue the Proclamation does not bear the hallmarks of reasonableness – justification, transparency and intelligibility – and was not justified in relation to the relevant factual and legal constraints that were required to be taken into consideration.” “

    Thanks for sharing.
    I’ve been thinking about… “professional” . I hear the testimonies from those that seem to accomplish… their dedication to “eat, drink, and live”… their focus on their profession.

    Is the term… a “professional Christian”… appropriate? Do I have this in my life… and much more so? Having experienced dedication for improvement, I think it’s impossible to have the same “intensity” in two different arenas… can’t serve God and Mammon at the same time. One’s worth the investment of focus for the imperishable crown… to become mature, eating the “meat of the Word”.

    1 Corinthians 9 24 Don’t you know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run like that, that you may win. 25 Every man who strives in the games exercises self-control in all things. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore run like that, not aimlessly. I fight like that, not beating the air, 27 but I beat my body and bring it into submission, lest by any means, after I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected.

    2 Timothy 2 3 You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No soldier on duty entangles himself in the affairs of life, that he may please him who enrolled him as a soldier.
