Thanks Obamacare!

I am having to do something that I have never had to do before... I am having to shop for health insurance. Since I have been an adult... and worked actual jobs... I have not had to do any shopping for health insurance.

But now, and I am convinced that it has to do with Obamacare, my insurance rates are skyrocketing and my employer is dropping coverage for family health coverage.

Now I am forced to consider HealthCare.Gov for my insurance needs. I am grateful for the option, but I am annoyed that I am now forced to need it.

you must have a doctrine

In his epistle to the Romans, Paul mentions predestination in close proximity to God's foreknowledge: "Whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren." (Romans 8:29) Christians who seek to be biblical in their thinking must have a doctrine of election and of predestination. These concepts were not invented by Augustine in his debate with Pelagius, or by Luther in his debate with Erasmus, or by Calvin in his debate with Pigius, or by Edwards in his debate with Chubb. These concepts of election and predestination are found in the text of Scripture. If you really want to be biblical as a Christian, it is incumbent upon you to hold to the biblical doctrine of predestination and of election and not some other construction. 
R. C. Sproul, St. Andrews Expositional Commentary on 1 - 2 Peter

Give me an "H"

Give me an "H"!

I was needing an "H" for a picture on the wall. My wife asked me to draw an "H" on a star, but I couldn't decide which one to do. So, here is a compilation of several different "H's" for her to choose from. The one I picked wasn't exactly like any of these... but was close to the one in the top right hand corner.
