Stormclouds gathering


This house, on St. Ann Street in the Treme, strikes me as a hauntingly beautiful symbol of this city. Storm clouds are gathering behind it to the north.

But before we get too sentimental, let me tell you that this house is just a block away from Willie Mae's Scotch House, where we just had some of the best fried chicken in the world for lunch.

CHILDREN OF GOD? BY STEVE FINNELL

Does the term"Children of God" include all mankind, regardless of religious belief? Is universal salvation a factual concept? God loves everyone, however, there are requirements and conditions to be accepted as "Children of God."

John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.

Only those who believe in Jesus have the right to become children of God.

Galatians 3:26-27 For you are sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

It is through faith in Christ and being baptized into Christ that men become children of God.

Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

Those who have believed in Jesus and have been baptized are "children of God."

Acts 4:10-12 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead---by this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.

Only those who have been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ are "children of God."

ALL OF US ARE NOT GOD'S CHILDREN!

THERE IS NO UNIVERSAL SALVATION!

Steve, this blog is not the place to proselytize.

Reluctantly, I will let your comment stand in the interest of free speech, although you seem to be spamming your blog. but if you become a nuisance, you're out of here.

I would delete Steve's comment entirely if I were you. He's done this for years, spamming his bloody self righteous crap everywhere. Did it again today on a blog I follow.

If Steve "Holier Than Thou" Finnell was burning alive in a car, I'd let the bastard cook.
