Pure Devotion to Christ

yellowflowerandplant1But 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. 1 Corinthians 13

What are we most devoted to? Is it to Christ or to ourselves? The following is a fascinating discussion about the temptations to make idols of ourselves and the things that seem to soothe us, which also distract us from a relationship with Christ and others. While not about Christianity,  it is dead-on in its relevance to the problems of idolatry, and the tendency for each of us to become less connected, rather than more, with Christ and his creation.

A COUPLE of weeks ago, I replaced my three-year-old BlackBerry Pearl with a much more powerful BlackBerry Bold.

Freedom and Authority-by JI Packer

moodsky2"Authority" is a word that makes most people think of law and order, direction and restraint, command and control, dominance and submission, respect and obedience. How, I wonder, do you react to such ideas? Have they any place in your vision of the life that is good and sweet? If so, you are unusual. One tragedy of our time is that, having these associations, "authority" has become almost a dirty word in the Western world, while opposition to authority in schools, families and society generally is cheerfully accepted as something that is at least harmless and perhaps rather fine.

Petty talk (CS Lewis)

branches1Many people have a very strong desire to meet celebrated or 'important' people, including those of whom they disapprove, from curiosity or vanity. It gives them something to talk or even (anyone may produce a book of reminiscences) to write about. It is felt to confer distinction if the great, though odious, man recognises you in the street.
