Three Inches of Water

An excited new convert was reading his Bible with a liberal minister he knew. The boy was reading through Exodus when he got to the Red Sea crossing. Suddenly, he startled the minister with a loud exclamation of, “wow! Praise the Lord!”

The minister looked at him and asked him what the commotion was about.

The young man responded, “The Lord has just rescued the Israelites by parting the Red Sea for them!”

The minister frowned, “my historian friend says that, at that time of year, the Red Sea was nothing but a swamp filled with three inches of water.”

The young man deflated, “oh.” He turned back to his Bible and kept reading, not near as excited.

Within a few moments, the young man exclaimed, “wow! Praise the Lord!”

The minister replied with, “what is it this time?”

The young man looked at him, glowing. “God has even performed a greater miracle! He has just drowned the entire Egyptian army in three inches of water!”

Quite a Predicament

I have a predicament. You see, so many people say that circumstances should judge whether or not abortion is right. It is from this view that people believe the woman should choose whether or not she wants to abort her child. I mean, who are we to stand in her way, right?

For anyone out there that believes the above, I want them to read something:

1. A woman is pregnant. She has had fourteen children and too many have already died. She and her husband do not have the funds to raise another child. Should she abort?

2. A woman is pregnant with her sixth son. Since you can see what is going to happen, the mother will be losing her husband in four more years and have three more children. She will struggle greatly with this extra child. Should she abort?

3. A woman is pregnant and engaged. The fiancee is not the father of the child. She faces public ridicule and rejection if anyone finds out. Should the woman abort?

I wonder what your responses were? It might be worthy to note that the below list is the child you would have aborted if you had chosen that action.

1. John Wesley

2. Dwight L. Moody

3. Jesus Christ

Surely, abortion is an evil crime and should be abolished! Please watch the following video:

A Little Faith


A man was once rock climbing without a rope or aids by himself in a highly elevated area. The rocks were smooth and the cliff was straight up and down. The man liked risks and, when the area became covered in thick fog, he still took the chance and began to descend.

As the man descended, the fog got thicker until, eventually, the man couldn’t even see the rock in front of him. For minutes the man tried to think of a way to get back up. He had descended well over 1,000 feet and there was no way he could make it all the way up without seeing decent footholds.

Finally, after a few minutes, the man became so terrified that he decided that clinging onto the rock face until morning came was his only hope.

The night grew colder but the man didn’t move. The fog grew thicker and had no intention of letting go. All through the night the man kept talking himself out of letting go or trying to maneuver down and hoping the bottom was near. Many times he was sure that he heard a voice tell him to let go. He didn’t listen; instead he clung harder to the rocks.

When the morning sun rose and burned off the fog, the man was exposed to the warmth of the sun. Within an hour the man’s frozen, but thawing body, slipped from the rock and landed on the ground . . . three feet below where he had spent the night. The dead body of the man who had waited all night was discovered shortly later that day.

If that man had a little faith he would have been able to stretch out his legs and touch the ground . . . instead he perished.

Hebrews 11:1:

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
