Cheers and/or Jeers – Were the “Hosanna” and the “Crucify” Crowds the Same?

An often used phrase this time of year goes something like this…

The same people who proclaimed “Hosanna” on Palm Sunday would later cry “Crucify Him” at Christ’s crucifixion.

I love the variety of information that I glean from the various RSS feeds to which I am subscribed. On Monday, I read two very different takes on the crowds which cheered Jesus and the crowds which jeered Jesus and called for His execution. I would encourage you to read both posts, as they approach the issue from two very different angles.

I have heard and used the above phrase for as long as I can remember. Honestly, I never really thought about its validity. In these days before Easter, I intend to study this topic, and will post my thoughts later this week.

As you read and study, feel free to try to persuade my upcoming post! What’s your take? Same or different crowd? Why?

Satan’s Advice – Part 1

I was FLOORED by this tweet yesterday…

I got to see Miles MacPherson preach at the NWLC conference a couple of months ago. I had never heard of him, so I started to follow him on Twitter.

I have been a Christian for 30 years, and have NEVER heard of temptation described this way.

What are your thoughts about this statement?

On the Road

Took my gig on the road today.

With all the busyness going on in ministry right now, I need to get some planning and organization done. So, I stepped out to my neighborhood Bread Co. and knocked out a lot of work. I am so blessed to be able to do this – it lets me focus in a way that is so energizing.

Well, back to it!

Does your job allow you to work out-of-pocket? Where do you go?

Where Do You Go for News?

In this current age of uncertainty, it is imperative that we as Christians are informed about the day’s events. But unlike the world, we need to be on top of things, not to obsess about the direction of the world’s economy or about our fate as a nation, but in order to be able to speak to the issues of the day from a Biblical perspective as we relate to those around us, saved and unsaved.

So my question is… where do you go for news?

I am choosing to withhold my news regiment until those that choose to comment do so. So what’s your pleasure? Left wing / right wing / network / cable / online / print / mobile / blog?
