What Is Man's Chief End?

Man's chief end is to glorify God, [a] and to enjoy Him for ever. [b]
[a]. Ps. 86:9; Isa. 60:21; Rom. 11:36; I Cor. 6:20; 10:31; Rev. 4:11
[b]. Ps. 16:5-11; 144:15; Isa. 12:2; Luke 2:10; Phil. 4:4; Rev. 21:3-4
THE WESTMINSTER SHORTER CATECHISM
Every new believer has been set apart by God, separated unto God to be transformed into the likeness of His Son, Jesus Christ. In this sense, every believer is a saint- a person separated from his old sinful way of life and set apart by God to increasingly glorify God as his life is transformed!

Its That Time of Year Again!

Okay, this is not based on my opinion, but on The Word of God, Who is H-O-L-Y!  As followers and disciples of Christ, do you think it is wise and glorifying to HIM if we participate in halloween??  What are the origins of this so-called holiday, anyway?  Do we really know, or do we think that its okay and "celebrate" it all in the name of  F-U-N??  Is it harmless?  Or is it the opposite, damaging to our souls, minds, and spirits?  Is it a sin, therefore offensive to our H-O-L-Y God?

I know that by posting something like this can be offensive to some, because some do see it as harmless fun.  BUT, we are called to be different!  We are called to "exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin." (Hebrews 3:13)  I believe that this so-called "holiday" is a snare of the devil, and we have been taken captive by the devil to do his will!!!  (2 Timothy 2:24-26)

Please take the time to watch this video about halloween and Christianity.  It is very insightful.  It just might make you think twice about it!  Blessings to all of God's Saints out there!!!

I think that Christians today try to make too much out of halloween. As a kid growing up I remember fond times running around the neighborhood with my friends collecting candy and just having fun. The devil never did enter my mind, it was all about having fun and collecting candy. I can honestly tell you that, even though I took part in this pegan holiday, my love for our Lord has grown stronger year by year as I grow closer to God. Blessings too you. Lloyd
