These are some spoken lyrics from a band that I like called Wolves at the Gate from their song East to West.

What is true joy or hope? Where can it be found? Is it a promise of golden streets? Is it in escaping the fires of hell? No. All things are worthless in view of the surpassing value of simply knowing God and being known by Him. Oh, that I may know him! To one day see the Savior who purchased my life by His very own blood, to see the King who suffered to die for a sinner like me..."

I do have mixed feelings on the decision. As a Christian, I don’t like the idea of the homosexual lifestyle. As a freedom loving American, I also don’t like the idea of our government saying what people can and can’t do with their personal lives. Instead of being upset, one of the pastors of our church put this up on Facebook. It says all I need it to.

1 Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
2The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying,
3“Let us burst their bonds apart
and cast away their cords from us.”
4He who sits in the heavens laughs;
the Lord holds them in derision.
5Then he will speak to them in his wrath,
and terrify them in his fury, saying,
6“As for me, I have set my King
on Zion, my holy hill.”

Psalm 2:1-6

The pastor’s paraphrase: “The nations can try to legislate what they want, but God sits in heaven and laughs, and will hold them in derision … Jesus still reigns.”

Today I celebrate victory. Victory over sin that made me unfit to live in freedom. Even if the Cubs don’t win today I am still a child of the King.

While Wendy and I were visiting in St. George Utah earlier, we stopped at a museum that is run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. If you don’t live in Utah, you don’t understand the cultural significance that the church, as they like to call themselves, has on living here. The missionaries that were running the tour were of course proselytizing during the tour. We got to talking about how we go to a Baptist church, Risen Life Church. It came up that there were no LDS families on our street. That is where we learned a new term. We live on what the LDS church calls Gentile Street. According to this missionary, there’s one in every ward. Wards are small neighborhoods around the ward/church building they gather at. Anyway, we thought it was a funny term.
