SDG (Repost)

This is a word-for-word repost of my original explanation of the acronym SDG which appears often in my blog and emails. – ed. note

You may have noticed I sign off lots of my posts (and emails, too, incidentally) with the letters SDG. I realized the other day that some might not understand where that comes from or what it means. SDG = Soli Deo GloriaThis phrase is Latin and it is translated as “to God alone be the Glory”. It is one of “five solas” which summarized the doctrine of the protestant reformation. J.S. Bach wrote these letters at the end of each piece of music he composed. In my Bible class my senior year (it was senior year, right Andi?), our teacher, Roy Lowrie encouraged us to live our lives only for the Glory of God…

This is my prayer, that God will be glorified in all that I do.

Blessings to you all.

Virgin Birth

For what it’s worth, I’ve never been able to swallow the concept of the “virgin birth” of Jesus. It just doesn’t make sense… I know, I know… “It’s a miracle, Matty. You just have to accept it.” Well, I can’t… I don’t… I won’t… fortunately, GOD doesn’t require us to adhere to a particular set of dogma or doctrines in order to be called HIS! There are a couple things I can’t believe that are the norm in Evangelical Christian circles… and this is one of them.

All that being said, I came across the following website today… maybe you want to check it out… maybe you don’t… http://www.wallsofjericho.info/
