In Who’s Death We Rejoice

Filed under: Religious, Writing — Josiah @ 6:00 am
The wicked lie in wait
To catch the righteous one.
Rejoicing in his fate,
They slay him for their fun.
Yet when the wicked raise their voice,
Then in their deaths do I rejoice?
 
I called him “friend,” a friend.
In love I washed his feet.
In greed for coin to spend,
He kissed Me in deceit.
When he cried in despairing voice,
Then in his death did I rejoice?
 
Did I not die for all?
Did I not shed My blood
For all sinners who fall?
And washed you in its flood?
Yet when the wicked have no voice,
Then in their deaths do you rejoice?
 
The wicked lie in wait
To catch the baptized one.
Rejoicing in his fate,
They slay him for their fun.
And when the wicked break your voice,
Then in your death we both rejoice.
 
Because when your sin took My voice,
I made you in My death rejoice.

Horgan Meets Jesus

Filed under: Religious, Uncategorized — Josiah @ 6:00 am

Ok, this one may require a bit of explanation: Dr. Horgan teaches the world history class that I’m taking for my core curriculum. One particular day, he was handing back the quizzes for the second unit of the class. The final portion of the quiz involved an unlabeled map of Europe, on which we had to mark the locations associated with certain historical people or events. This unit had involved the rise of Christianity, so one of the locations to identify was “the birthplace of Christianity.”

Now, before Dr. Horgan handed them back, he gave his characteristic intro spiel on how he thought it went. He began by mentioning that this is a Christian campus and most of us, here, are Christians, then continued by saying, “So it might be important to know where Jesus Christ was born! And He was not born … in Turkey!”

He then went on to explain how the first time this happened – several years ago – he had written to the president of the university asking, “If my students don’t know where Jesus Christ was born, can I flunk them?” The answer he received was, “You can, only if it’s written on the syllabus.”
