Worldview Super Conference III

July 22-25, 2009 at Midway Presbyterian Church in Powder Springs, Georgia


American Vision is hosting their 3rd worldview conference. Any Christian who is looking for a conference to attend this year this is the one I recommend. The speakers at this conference are without a doubt some of the best in our time. The theme of the conference is The Great Reversal: How Christians Will Change the Future.

"This unique event will equip you in gaining a biblical understanding
of media,
economics, politics, education, and science. More
importantly, it will show you how
Christians can use new media
(Internet, Print-on-Demand, Forums, In-Home
Pod-casting, etc.) to make an “end-run” around the liberal

stronghold to advance the Gospel and a Christian Worldview."

If you have the spare money please attend this conference it will do you a world of good. For more information relating to this conference click here.

Blessing for keeping God's Law

"Where there is no vision, the people perish; but he that keepeth the law, happy is he." Proverbs 29:18

I came across this verse in one of the most difficult chapters I've ever read. In Foundations of Christian Scholarship, Gary North writes about Max Weber and his influence in Sociology.

Just as I was thinking that I would not gain anything from this chapter, this verse shone as a beacon of light. I do not believe it was the author's intent to focus this chapter on this particular passage, however this verse caught my attention. I've heard it said many times that "Where there is no vision, the people perish" Unfortunately, the latter part of this verse is left out. The more I read Scripture the more I am convinced and convicted that God's Law Word is the only standard to live by. Government won't save me, free health care won't satisfy me, nor will the crumbling public schools educate me. Only God's Law will make me happy. That's something worth considering.

30 Hour Famine

On March 6th and 7th students at New Covenant Church starved for 30 hours to save lives around the world. It was a long and rigorous weekend, however it gave us a better appreciation of our easy access to food. We now have a better understanding of what it feels like to be desperately hungry. Here are a few pictures of our adventurous weekend...

14,000 kids die each day from hunger

We slept outside in cardboard boxes
