Book Review:Doing the Right Thing



          Making Moral Choices in a World Full of Options
By Scott B Rae

Doing the Right Thing is a companion book to a film series by the same name produced by Chuck Colson.”(Page 11) Scott Rae felt the need to bring the information in the film series to the print medium.

This book looks at the moral decline and the ethical mess we as a nation have gotten into. The text of the book puts our ethical morass under a microscope to highlight the state our world has created.

This book helped me understand some of the issues we face in the medical field, the marketplace and in public life. It gave me a better vision of our world by making the distinction between an objective outlook, the way things are and a subjective outlook, the way we want them to be.

This book is a hard read. It will make the reader stretch to understand what points the author is making. This is a book I would recommend for pastors and seminary students and professors who want to see a positive change in the state of our world.

I received this book from Harper Collins Publishers through its BooklookBloggers program.

In return, I was asked to give an unbiased review of it.

Songs of Resurrection











I received this in an e-mail several years ago.


"On My Father's Side"


I heard this song sung at our Community Good Friday service this past Friday.


"Who Am I"


Give thanks to God for sending His Son to earth and allowing Jesus to take care of the sin-debt we had.

Relationship



Christianity is a relationship between each of us and Jesus Christ. He sealed that bond when He shed his blood for the remission of our sins.

We give thanks for Jesus’s unselfish act. But we also must remember that He died for not only us and our sins but also those of the neighbor we don’t see eye to with. While we think we are safe in the arms of God. We have to realize go loves those in the correction systems, county jails, state department of corrections and the federal bureau of prisons.

I remember a conversation I had with a close friend about the son of a young woman who previously went to church with us. The son’s name appeared in the “vital statistics” column-what our city
newspaper calls the list of the new arrests. My friend said something profound, “There, but for the grace of God, goes me.” 

It is through the grace of God that we have a relationship with Jesus. It is because of that grace that our Lord endured Calvary for us.
