Drumming for Jesus

The Largest DrumSET

90 Drums & 90 Cymbals…for His Glory!

The largest drum set in the world was designed and is played by a guy named Dr Mark. Here is what he says about it:

I have designed and play The Largest DrumSET in the World with an arsenal of unusual sounds to Worship God and Wage War against the enemy since 1978. God’s presence & power upon these sounds bring LIFE, healing, deliverance and miracles. We get to kick the devil out of his place of power…in our lives and in our world!

You have taken God rock to a whole new level Dr Mark. I’m gonna go turn my guitar amp up to eleven now.

The Minister’s Treehouse

One day in 1993, Horace Burgess, a minister in Crossville, TN, received a message from God that if he built Him a treehouse, he would never run out of materials.

So Burgess started building a treehouse out of salvaged wood, and after twenty years, it stands ten stories tall. The treehouse is built around seven trees that act as supports. Burgess worked on it as he found materials, stopping and starting as supplies or time allowed. All in, he has spent about $12,000 on it.

If you get raptured, what happens to your pets?

Nearly 40 million people in the U.S. believe there will be a Second Coming in their lifetime, followed by the Rapture. It is said that during this time, the righteous will be spirited away to a better place while the unbelievers remain on Earth. Since the Bible isn’t clear on what happens to our furry little friends, you can now at least have peace of mind that they can be cared for. That is, if you don’t mind they are looked after by (gasp!) atheists.

This is not a joke. An organization exists that recruits non-Christian animal lovers nationwide to volunteer to take care of left-behind pets if the Rapture occurs. You pay a $10 monthly fee to keep your membership and register all your pets.

Geez, I hope they’ll take an unpredictable Ferret with a bad disposition.

Does ‘Adjustment Bureau’ promote predestination?

The Adjustment Bureau” opened this weekend and is already getting a lot of attention because of its theme of free will versus predestination. The movie, starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, is really a love story, but it forces viewers to question whether a higher power really controls what we do and decisions we make every day. adjustment bureau

In the film, “The Adjustment Bureau” are people who walk among us “adjusting” the minor details of everyday life (i.e., causing us to miss a bus, answer a phone, or run a stoplight) in order to keep us on track for the “plan” that has been written for our life. This “plan,” according to the movie, has been authored by the “Chairman,” who Christians would likely refer to as God.

In the movie, Matt Damon wants to believe he is in control of his life. He is soon confronted by the Adjustment Bureau and learns that his free will is an illusion – limited, at best – and that  deviating from the plan can have dire consequences.

I think Calvinists and free-will believers will have a heyday with this movie. Although the film muddles theology and ultimately avoids taking a clear stance on the argument, it will make you ponder the small events in life that seem inconsequential.

The movie ends by giving us hope that we can earn back free will or change God’s plan if we show that our intentions are genuine and we can be trusted with more control over our lives.

View trailer here.

Questions the movie leaves you with:

Do we really have free will, or is it limited free will?

If the “Chairman” makes all of the decisions for our lives, can we get him to change his mind? How?

Does predestination really encompass every detail of our lives, or just the major events and decisions that ultimately affect history and God’s plan?
