The miracle theater


. . . . interesting piece in my newspaper this week. Have you heard of the Miracle Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN? You can check it out at www.miracletheater.com . Anyway, the folks there, all Christians, spent $90,440 on a fill-page advertisement in USA Today that ran this past week proclaiming "enough is enough."

In accepting the Emmy for her Bravo reality show, "My Life on the D-List," comedienne Kathy Griffin said, "a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus."

In response, the ad from Miracle Theater said, "We at the Miracle Theater consider it an honor to stand for Jesus today. We may never win a national award. We may never be household names. We may never been seen in Hollywood. Although others may choose to use their national platform to slander our God, we are honored as professional entertainers to stand for Christ."

Now--I fully support Kathy Griffin's right to not believe in Jesus. That's what free will is all about. But I think someone ought to sit the dear woman down and tell her about common grace . . . about how all of us breathe air, share in goodness, and live on a planet provided for and sustained by God and his son, Jesus the Christ . . .

Kathy is one of the most crass individuals I've ever listened to. Her material is always foul. I, for one, consider her morals, and her humor, to be far below the "D-list." More like F minus.

Kathy's words wound us in the same way that our sin wounded Christ. I am remembering that she is not the enemy - she is a victim of the enemy, she is in chains to sin as we once were before we were set free. As such, I tremble for her and pray that she will be released. Our war is with principalities and powers...

Our weapons are the Word of God and the power of prayer. In the final analysis, God will defend His Honor and dispense His justice. Yes, those words inflicted wounds as they were intended to do...
