Every time We're Apart It Feels As If He Will Disappear, And Before I Knew It I Was Already In Love With Him"

Hi guys!  This is the Heath McNease song I will be singing at my grandfather’s memorial service.  I know the guitar-ing is a little rough, and the rhythm isn’t super smooth—but if you guys could give this a listen and tell me what you think, I’d really appreciate it.  

Thank you!

I really like it! You have such a nice voice. Also you should send this video to Heath, didn’t you correspond to get the chords in the first place?, and see what he thinks ;)

Thanks babe!  No way sweets, I am too chicken to do that. I tagged him in the tweet I sent out, that’s about as far as I’ll go.

Well darn. Well I still hold out hope for good things to happen in your skype conversation!

That was beautiful, Phi!

Thank you, sweetie!


a true love by kujo

These are beautiful.

ok but give me one good reason why you wouldn’t date Kermit the frog besides that he is a puppet and a frog

I can’t beat Miss Piggy in a fight. She’s very strong and knows karate.

“I realized why I was so upset about John Piper. I was upset because my single greatest fear is that God hates his creation, that he will never stop being angry with me, that he has chosen just a few for salvation, that the little girl in India is not among them, and that, perhaps, I am not among them either.”


I gotta go to Canada. That’s fine. I like maple syrup.

absynthe--minded said: Re: Calvinism - what are the bits you agree with? Because I've gravitated towards pure Arminianism in recent years, and I'm curious as to your feelings.

Before I answer, I do want to mention that both Arminianism and Calvinism are pretty broad terms and cover a wide spread.  I do favor Wesley Arminianism (perks of growing up partially Methodist) and admittedly, there isn’t a whole lot of Calvinism I do agree with.  But the points I do buy:

  • I agree that we’re all sinners, that sin and separation from God enslaves us.
  • I like that New Calvinism (of most reformed churches) is focused on mission work and transforming the culture.
  • In a sense, I do believe God is in control, which is a Calvinist claim.  The difference herein lies in what I think God is in control of…

Now for the disagreements.  Basically, a lot of my ideas on predestination and freewill come from Lewis.  (Shocker, I know)  There’s a line in The Great Divorce where Macdonald says to the protagonist, “Ye cannot fully understand the relations of choice and Time till you are beyond both…”  I believe God is beyond both freewill and predestination and that there will never be a good, satisfying answer until we meet Him face to face.  

do believe that God never interferes with our choices.  I believe God wants everyone to be saved, to be with Him.  I do not think God created some people with the express purpose of them being separated from Him forever—I think God created each person with an intense desire to love them and to be with them forever.  Most of all, I trust God’s heart.

I think that it’s important to note that God is outside of time, God isn’t linear—I think all moments-the past, the present, the future are happening all at once with God.  I think in God’s presence linear time dissolves, that Man falling away from him is occurring at the same time Jesus is teaching, at the same time Jesus is dying, at the same time Jesus is descending into Hell and paying our ransom, at the same time the new Heaven & Earth are being created.  I think our lives occur all at once with God, but because He is infinite, He can step into every single moment at will.

Where does that leave the question of predestination and free will?  Hell if I know.  But those are my feelings on the matter.
