I really don't think it matters

All the talking and all the pointing to something different perhaps doesn't really work. the smiles and the handshakes in the back after church with the "great sermon just what we needed", really in the end mean nothing.

Mike Slaughter said something this week as he talked to our group at Willow Valley about you can keep the thousands of soft-secular folks, just give me a dozen people ready to storm the gates of hell in a gasoline suit.

That resonated with me. In the end too many of our people are simply afraid of what is on the other side. They won't stick their heads out of the shell, we wait around and think about the glory days. Well guess what, they are over we are in a new time.

We live in a time where people want to not simply "be", instead they want to "do". they are not interested so much in where you live or what you drive or how you dress but instead are concerned about things like what's in your heart. they want to make a difference for the world.

I want to be one of those people in a gasoline suit....heck at least some people will be happy I am in a suit!
