Billboards of Pastor with Bible Removed Due to Complaints
The Bible is very controversial. This is one example where people complained because of his billboards show him holding a Bible. The mall even said the billboards are a “Serious Threat.”So malls across California had them removed. But these people don’t realize doing that has caused tons of media attention. Bring the Bible out in front. The only reason the Bible is feared is because it convicts. People don’t want to be told they are doing wrong. If it was just a book Greg Laurie was holding no one would bat an eye. I am sure if he was holding the Quran, there wouldn’t have been an issue either. That tells you something about the Bible.
If these people don’t believe in the Bible, then why are they trying to stop it? That is because it convicts and they don’t want to believe they are accountable to God.
The mall will allow the billboards if the billboards were revised and Greg Laurie take off the Bible. It was said that they comprised and removed the Bible. However, the mall still refused to put up the new billboards.
This year marks the 29th year of SoCal Harvest. Which makes this the longest large-scale evangelistic event in American History. This event features some Christian Music artist. The dates for this free event will be August 17, 2018 to August 19, 2018 at Angel Stadium.
I first heard about this at church when our pastor mentioned.

National Bratwurst Day – day for those yummy German sausages we call bratwurst (comes from two German words). #BratwurstDay
National Bratwurst Day
Bratwurst is a great sausage to grill! There are many forms of this delicious meat. Some can be spicy and others sweet. Not to mention, some plain too.
This day is held annually on August 16. From what I can tell it was created by Johnsonville in 2013. Johnsonville in Wisconsin is the largest manufacture of sausage by revenue in America.
They originated in Nuremberg, Germany, in the 14th century, and their name is derived from two German words.
“Braten”, meaning “to fry” or “to roast”, and “wurst”, meaning “sausage”. Put them together you have a fried sausage or roasted sausage.
- Venison (Deer)
Sometimes they will mix one or more of these meats into the one brautworst. This sausage can be called Brat or Brats for short.
Some people eat them with sauerkraut (typical German dish). Some use cheese or other type of dipping sauce. Plus, some people eat them like a hot dog, using hot dog bun. You can even fry them with onions and peppers.
Grill them them is the best!

National Roller Coaster Day – day for those adrenaline people who love to rides roller coasters. #RollerCoasterDay
National Roller Coaster Day
I like to ride roller coasters. The Wild Eagle at Dollywood I believe is one of my most favorite ones. It is a very smooth and fast ride. So take this time and hit up your favorite amusement park and ride the roller coasters!
Roller coasters are a staple of amusement parks, and even though the first patent for a roller coaster was issued to LaMarcus Thompson in 1885, it’s believed modern roller coasters descended from winter sled rides made popular in the 17th century in St. Petersburg, Russia. Called “Russian Mountains,” these thrill rides took place on icy hills that may have reached as high as 200 feet in the air.1
This day is held annually on August 16. It got started in 1986 by a national newspaper proclamation.
The first roller coaster in America is believed to have opened at Coney Island on June 16, 1884.
There are all kinds of roller coasters. Wooden and traditional metal. There are even water roller coasters too.
Some go upside down. Some go fast and others slow.
I remember when we did the Colossal Coaster World VBS, one of the youths lessons mentioned about a roller coaster called No Way Out. (It went backwards in the total dark).
A roller coaster runs on rails similar to a train.

Solus Christus or Solo Christo the doctrine of Christ Alone or Through Christ Alone.
Solus Christus or Solo Christo
I am going to finish up this Sola series with Christ Alone as part of a new series Theological Tuesday.
Sola & Solo
Sola & Solo both are Latin meaning alone or single. Think of it when you sing a song by yourself it is called a solo.
Forms of this word are
Per the Latin Dictionary these are the forms of this word for Alone.
Christus & Christo
Christus & Christo is Latin too. These Latin words means Christ.
Song through Christ alone my corner stone …
Jesus Plus Equation
We are saved by Christ Alone, no other way. It is not the Jesus Plus Equation. As in Jesus + This or That. It is Christ and Christ Alone. Some will say it is Jesus + Baptism. NOPE! Baptism doesn’t save you. (reaad more about that).
John 14:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”
As you can see Jesus is the way! We must go through Him and Him Alone. We are saved by the works of Christ. We cannot save our self. It is all about what Christ did! There is no other name, person, item, etc. that can save us either.
Check out a few other Bible Verses
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”. 1 Timothy 2:5.
“Be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you sound. This is the stone which was set at naught by you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, by which we must be saved”. Acts 4:10-12.
“For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behooved him to be made like his brethren; that he might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people”. Hebrews 2:16-17.
“Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, that hath passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not a High Priest who cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but who was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need”. Hebrews 4:14-16.
“Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come to God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such a high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens”. Hebrews 7:25-26.
“My little children, these things I write to you, that ye sin not. And if any man sinneth, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world”. 1 John 2:1-2.
Like the Catholic Church and a few others place the role of intercessor on its leaders, the Bible is clear on who the intercessor is … Jesus Christ. Everything points to Christ. Christ should be first! (Matthew 6:33). Our relationships need to be Christ-Centered. It is all about him! Not us! We cannot do it! We are totally deprived. We cannot save our selves. Christ is the only one who saves! He is the one that changes us and makes us a new creation.

Serendipity Tracting - leaving gospel tracts in a random happy place for others to find. #SerendipityTracting The post Serendipity Tracting appeared first on Courageous Christian Father. Read the full article at Serendipity Tracting ©2004-2017 by Steve Patterson of Courageous Christian...
Serendipity Tracting – leaving gospel tracts in a random happy place for others to find. #SerendipityTracting
I think one of my favorite things to do is leaving gospel tracts and/or Gospel of John’s and random locations. Usually this is called the act of serendipity. I remember this word back in the day when I used to do the currency tracking of Where’s George./
I know some people leave Easter tracts with Easter Candy; Christmas tracts with the Christmas items in the store. Same with Halloween Tracts with Halloween items. Or you can do like the one I did above, I was at Chick-fil-A, and they had these flowers there. They had the fork for a card, so I put the water tract in that spot. It makes it more interesting if you leaved a special themed tract in a special themed area.
Meaning of Serendipity
serendipity – finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for
Days of the Year shows
The word serendipity was coined in the mid 1700s by a man named Horace Walpole. In a letter to a friend, he explained how he had created the term from a Persian fairy tale known in English as The Three Princes of Serendip. The story tells of three princes who were banished from the kingdom of Serendip (another term for Sri Lanka) in order to prove their worth. As they wander the world, “serendipitous” moments occur to them time after time, in a rather unbelievable amount, much like some children’s stories, where they just happen to run across the perfect place or the clue to solve the mystery, or old, corny superhero movies, where they just happen to have the antidote lying around. 
Held every August 18.
