    How can I put my torrents onto a DVD that my player will accept? I have tried SONY Vegas Movie Studio software, my DivX player's software, and Windows DVD maker... what gives?

For we are not ignorant of his devices.

Just how well do we know the devices of Satan? (2 Cor. 2:11)

As a chess player can often times think ahead in strategy, do we have a plan toward Satan's offenses and temptations?

I thought the other day as I listened to some the confirmation hearings for H. Clinton that one of Satan's best devices, Money, has really come into the spotlight in the economic downturn. Through the media, our anxieties will become heightened to the money problems of the world. Many have become jobless, maybe I'm next. How many people have decided to sear their consciences, and do something they know is wrong to make ends meet? Where does our security lie in our own lives, with the material wealth of this life or God Almighty? I ask the question again.

Where does our security lie in our own lives, with the material wealth of this life or God Almighty?

It's easy for Christians to give the "right" answers, but to apply the answers to reality takes wisdom, planning, self control, and a total dependency upon God (Faith).

2 Cor. 11:3 "But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ."

Paul recognized the danger and was fearful of Satan's devices of deciet and craftiness would overcome the Corinthians. Will we be able to do the same when/if the situation arises?

1 Pet 5:8 & Romans 16:20
  • pollymh
    good thoughts! It is really easy to get wrapped up in our material possessions.
    by pollymh at 01/15/09 7:08AM
  • mattdevore
    It's good to decide those sorts of things before the situation actually arises. If we don't, then we have to try to decide with the pressure of Satan bearing down on us. We tend to choose poorly in those cases.

    Incidentally, I got a phone call yesterday afternoon from a brother in Christ. He said he got called into the office at work on Monday and was laid off. Tuesday, he found a job with a nice increase in pay.
    by mattdevore at 01/15/09 7:27AM
  • jlmanager
    We have a brother here who whose position was cut, and he was offered a transfer to a job with the same pay but that would mean not being able to be at either service on Sunday, or a job with a large pay cut that would allow him to attend both. He chose the latter.

    Good thoughts and reminders. It would really do us good to live near each other :)

    The following is from "Faith in Action" by Mike Wilson: "Financial concerns will always be front page news on earth. Honest people need to make aliving, corruption will follow the trail of big money, and politicians willissue endless calls for economic reform. Ultimately, our lives should not be about money. In the bigger scheme of things, it is just a tool for a temporary purpose".

    Very good thoughts. It's good to re-focus our priorities and examine our faith on a regular basis, so that we are ready when the challenges come.

8 stuff

1. I can twitch my left eye ball on command, but not my right. I guess the synapses just aren't there.

2. I have melted plastic infused in my knee skin, it dripped, it boiled a bit, then calmed down. My fault from when I was 12 playing with fire.

3. When I eat chocolate, or anything sweet, I don't have a dependency on milk to drink. I could drink OJ and eat a snickers. mmmmmmm

4. I eat lemons like oranges. Hey its all citrus!

5. I hate bacon. The smell makes me sick.

6. I love cheese, and I will put it on just about anything. Cereal, you ask? Maybe a light dusting of parmesan would do the trick!

7. I'm pretty good at memorizing numbers, but horrible at math. When I was a sales guy for Grainger, I had several customers credit cards memorized, when they would purchase things, they'd tell me to just put it on the card. I also identify roads by number much better than names, all those letters get confusing and look like Wing Dings to me.

8. I have never broken a bone in my body.
