My Weight Loss

The Sackrider Slimdown Begins!

OK, yesterday was the first offical day of The Sackrider Slimdown!  Dad, Dianne, and Stephanie are joining me, although, I’m certian I’m the only one brave enough to post my weight right here online.  I will weight in every Wednesday moring, and post my weight, as well as my eating habits and my exercise routines.  Maybe this psudo-accountability will help me to bring off the pounds.

Now because I want the thousands of readers out there (harharhar) to quickly see my weekly results, I’m going to create a new page and link it up top.  That way, it won’t get lost in my other posts about life, ministry, and family.  Feel free to comment on any of my posts – any words of encouragement are welcomed!


Who are you to judge… yourself?

Romans 9

20But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’ ” 21 Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use?

Satan is the accuser of the brethren (Rev 12:10).  When we speak against our fellow Christians, we become evangelists for Satan.  This concept is easily understood by the Church when applied as a deterrent for gossip or other externally directed accusations.  Interestingly, we seldom if ever consider the implications when we are accusing ourselves.  Most likely, I suppose, this is due to the fact that we know already or at least we seem to think we know, whether or not our accusations have merit, and therefore become not only our accuser and also our own judge.
