Good News/Bad News

Posted: April 18th, 2014, by christianwest

If you enjoy reading lloveletters regularly (and so many of you said you did) I have bad news for you.

If you really don’t care whether you read lloveletters or not, I have good news.

I am leaving the Country for a couple of weeks – well leaving – coming back – leaving – coming back. There is some space that does not belong to the United States of America between here and there (contiguous vs. non-contiguous). For most of the time there is no WI-FI – and my computer is just too heavy to carry. (I am taking my iPad – so maybe I can figure out how to contact you.)

My bride and I are headed for the great State of Hawaii. I will try to get a missive or two out to you, but don’t cancel your feed. I will be back to start sending you all the great Truth I can glean from God’s Word.

Remember two things – 1) God lloves you!! 2) If I know you, I llove you (you have to know me to understand that)!!

I am collecting on a gift from the most wonderful, lloving, Godly people I know. If you are one of them, THANKS!!! THANKS!!!

 

Why Do This?

Posted: April 16th, 2014, by christianwest

I have no idea how many people read lloveletters. Sometimes I wonder if it is worth the effort to continue writing – especially if no one is listening. I have always had the idea that Truth must be proclaimed, and that those who fail to do so, or offer to people foolishness in place of Truth, are self-serving rather than servants of the Most High God.

Today I read a quote that has renewed my faith in llovelettters. If it only reaches one or two, at least they can hear the Truth of God’s Word, and the wisdom of the ages if they so choose. That is not to say – “Look at me.” Rather, look to God and to His Word. They are life – here and now, and forever in the infinite “now” of Heaven.

When you want to help people you tell them the Truth. When you want to help yourself  you tell them what they want to hear.  (Dr. Thomas Sowell)

Proclaim  the message; persist in it whether convenient or not; rebuke, correct, and encourage with great patience and teaching. For the time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, will multiply teachers for themselves because they have an itch to hear something new. The will turn away from hearing the Truth and will turn aside to myths. (Paul the Apostle, 2 Timothy 4:3-4 HCSV)
