Like the old saying goes.. Opinions are like noses.. everybody's got one. And I've got plenty. Opinons, not noses.
IMO1: The Green Bay Packers are the greatest football team EVER. They have 13 world championships, and 4 Super Bowl titles.
The rest of you are entitled your OPINIONS but just know if you disagree, let's be clear.. I am right, and you are wrong. IMO :)
IMO2: The Bible says an evil generation looks for a sign. This has never been more true than today where 'society' is conflicted over hanging a bathroom sign. Girls, Boys, and.. those who are more gender fluid?
IMO3: Shortcuts seldom work. Back before GPS my wife and our 3 kids were in Colorado using a 'paper map' and took a shortcut to Royal Gorge that was not fit for mountain goats and certainly not our family minivan. After backtracking to civilization we arrived to our destination about 2 hours later than if we had not took our 'short cut'.
Even something as simple as taking an alternate route or switching to the lane that is moving faster is certain to backfire
IMO.. stay on the path marked right.
IMO4: Never reduce your Christian Faith to a list of DOs and TO DON'Ts.
The 10 Commandments is not an arbitrary list sent down by upper management (aka God), but instead simple instructions for a functioning society. And to think how groups like the ACLU are opposed to the 10 Commandments.
Without rules we have anarchy. Rules without the love of God we have religion, but rules honored in loving service and reverence to our creator could fix this broken world.
IMO5: It matters what you believe.
- No matter how sincere you are if you believe 1+1 equals anything but 2, you are WRONG.
- If you desire to summit the highest mountain in the world but you are in Colorado, you will never climb the 29,029′ of Mt. Everest in Nepal.
- While I do respect the worship any god, IMO there is only one God and he is the God of our Bibles.
IMO6: Jesus Christ is the good news for a hurting world. Jesus is the son of God who lived died and rose again for our sins. He completes the salvation story for mankind.
So WE MUST share this good news of hope for our broken world. Jesus IS NOT about religion, or arbitrary rules to follow. He is about truth and purpose found
While I do have plenty of other opinions on topics ranging from politics to food... I think I better stop for today.
May God bless and use you all in ways that are beyond your dreams and with opinions that are your sincere attempts to love and worship our God.
