Life Today (James Robison) and other Sky Angel Programming

So I was watching James Robison's show, Life Today, and he had a woman named Shaunti Feldhahn. I was impressed. She wrote a book for women telling all about men, entitled For Women Only. I was curious to see if she really did know all about men, and was very impressed with what she said. She had men nailed perfectly. One of her main points was that men instinctively respect their wives, and women instinctively love their husbands, because that is what both sides want most to receive from the other. That's why God commands men to love their wives and women to honor their husbands... Because if they take care of that, their marriage is a big step in going in the right direction. Personally I think this is why men do far more of the really daring and sometimes stupid things (like luge, bungee jumping, cliff jumping, etc. because they want to be respected by other men). I also think this is why some women will allow men to treat them like trash in a relationship, because they are wanting to be loved desperately. I think you can listen to the interview (all of 15 minutes on http://www.lifetoday.org/ ). It should be in their archives if you are viewing this board later in time). I highly recommend it. Come to think of it, I think I highly recommend every program.

I also caught a Tony Evans sermon. Boy oh boy, does that guy have insight. I want to preach like him! To summarize his sermon in a nutshell, when the box is closed on your life, and somebody in heaven is evaluating it, the only things that matter after you die is what you did with your treasure, time, and talents. Were they used for God? (Note: this is not to say you get to heaven by works, but it is to evaluate what you are doing with your life after you made the decision.

I caught a couple of music videos too... I must say I have turned into a bit of a Christian rock music video junkie thanks to TVU. (You can also watch TVU on http://www.tvulive.com/) Where else could I catch a little Blindside and P.O.D.? On the Spirit channel I caught the music video for American Dream by Casting Crowns. They said they came up with the video after he had worked with kids in a youth group. After counseling so many of them for so many years, the dad-gone-to-make-money-so-he-doesn't-have-time-for-his-kids syndrome was so widespread he made this song. I must say I am thankful for my dad being the man he is. Oh, here's the words so you know what I am talking about.

All work no play may have made Jack a dull boy
But all work no God has left Jack with a lost soul
But he's moving on full steam
He's chasing the American dream
And he's gonna give his family the finer things
Not this time son I've no time to waste
Maybe tomorrow we'll have time to play
And then he slips into his new BMW
And drives farther and farther and farther away
So He works all day and tries to sleep at night
He says things will get better;
Better in time
And he works and he builds with his own two hands
And he pours all he has in a castle made with sand
But the wind and the rain are comin' crashing in
Time will tell just how long his kingdom stands
His kingdom stands
His American Dream is beginning to seem
More and more like a nightmare
With every passing day"Daddy, can you come to my game?"
"Oh Baby, please don't work late."
Another wasted weekend
And they are slipping away
'Cause he works all day and lies awake at night
He tells them things will get better
It'll just take a little more time
He used to say, "Whoever dies with the most toys wins"
But if he loses his soul, what has he gained in the end
I'll take a shack on the rock
Over a castle in the sand
Now he works all day and cries alone at night
It's not getting any better
Looks like he's running out of time
'Cause he worked and he built with his own two hands
And he poured all he had in a castle made with sand
But the wind and the rain are coming crashing in
Time will tell just how long his kingdom stands
His kingdom stands
All they really wanted was You
All they really wanted was You
All they really wanted was You

So, what I am trying to say, is that you need to get Sky Angel!
