The Story of an Amazing God that can do the impossible . .

      In the early '70's God came to our house. Oh, He didn't come with regal robes in all His power and glory - but He snuck in unawares, uninvited and did stuff! Do you have a God that can do stuff? That can git-er-done? The God of the Bible is Almighty, needs no help or advice, no council, can git-er-done by His mighty right arm, and does it right the first time. He never has to do it over. And He never tries. He does.

     We were a rough and tumble family of loggers from the hills of Southwest Oregon,  rough sawn and primitive. "We had no time for Jesus, but for us He had a plan - the most wicked, hopeless case in all the land" says the song you can listen to here. We were the coarsest of the coarse. but you see, God deliberately chooses the things men consider foolish: "For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of

He doesn't say they might come to me, or that He hopes they will, He says they will come to Him.

"And you hath He (Jesus) quickened (made alive) who were dead in trespasses and sins" (Ephesians 2:1). Think about what is being said here. Every religion has a different twist on the way to get to heaven. But the only list that matters is the one made by the God that physically raised Christ from the dead before so many witnesses. This is why Paul says that if Jesus "be not raised, you faith is futile; you are still dead in your sins" (1 Corinthians 15:17). And what does this one list say? "Cursed is he who continueth not in all things written in the book of the law, to do them" (Galatians 3:10).
