When considering the following quote by William Law in regard to the Play House, it takes absolutely no imagination to apply this to the modern motion picture theatre.  Christians, the movie house is no place for God's people!  This quote is from his book entitled, "The Absolute Unlawfulness of the Stage Entertainment," available for free at:

"So that one may with the same assurance affirm, that the Play-House, not only when some very profane play is on the stage, but in its daily common Entertainments, is as certainly the House of the Devil, as the Church is the House of God.  For though the Devil be not professedly worshipped by Hymns directed to him, yet most that is there sung is to his service; he is there obeyed and pleased in as certain a manner, as God is worshipped and honoured in the Church." - William Law, The Absolute Unlawfulness of the Stage-Entertainment, 1726

Exposing the Word of Faith Heresy

Justin Peters will be at GracePointe Baptist Church in Oklahoma City tomorrow through Tuesday of this week.  (September 26-28).  GracePointe is located:

GracePointe Baptist Church
2209 N. Post Road
Oklahoma City, OK 73141

Justin Peters exposes the heretical "Word of Faith" movement, showing the antics of such TV preaches as Kenneth Copeland, Joyce Meyer, Benny Hinn, and so on.  Those who know me know that I came out of this type of church back in 2005.  I know the craziness in this type of movement first hand.  Justin's website is:

You are all invited.  I'd love to see you there!  (Sunday 11:00, Monday and Tuesday, 6:30 PM)

Warren Holliman and His Chair

About three weeks ago we traveled to meet a very special lady from Arkansas.  For safety purposes I won't give you her name, but she is a cousin of mine whom I had never met in person before then.  She and I have carried on email and snail mail correspondence since 1998.  Her great-grandfather, Elijah Holliman and my g-g-g-grandfather, Warren Holliman were brothers and brothers-in-arms fighting for the Confederacy in the 41st Alabama regiment.  Here is Warren's picture:
Warren was born in 1835 and died in 1908.

Sometime, most likely after the war, he built a rocking chair for his young niece, Mary Elizabeth Holliman, Elijah's daughter.

The cousin I told you about is the granddaughter of Mary Elizabeth Holliman.  The chair was passed down in her family, and now it belonged to her.

This lady graciously gave me this rocking chair.  The rockers are missing, and the wicker seat does not look very strong, but this is a priceless treasure fashioned by the hands of my g-g-g-grandfather!
(My dear wife is taking the picture)

We spent about 2 hours at the Burger King on the Cherokee Turnpike.  That was our meeting place as we drove from Guthrie and she drove from Mountain Home, AR.

She showed us a lot of her family tree research that she and I share.  We had a great time and it was a pleasure to meet her after years of correspondence.

And I love the chair!
