William Tyndale

The image “http://alumniweb.hertford.ox.ac.uk/media/1/20030218-tyndale.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

English religious reformer and bible translator William Tyndale was
burned at the stake as a heretic at Vilvarde, near Brussels, Belgium,
on the orders of King Henry VIII. The Anglican priest pioneered the
first English translation of the Bible. Many will do anything & everything
to keep this Book out of The Common Man's hands. (See Communist,
Kings, Dictators, Liberals, ACLU, Educators, Popes, etc.).

The British are NOT Coming -- Film at Eleven:
How We've Trivialized the News

More than 225 years ago, Paul Revere made his famous
midnight ride to let Americans know "The British are
coming!" It was important, life-changing news.

But how times have changed! Today, thanks to a
thriving media and broadcast industry, "the news" is
brought to us every hour on the hour -- whether
something important is happening or not. And at least
one historian says that all this daily "news product"
is, well, making us dumb.

In his book, HOW THE NEWS MAKES US DUMB, author John
Sommerville observes that people used to exchange
news only when something really important happened.
But what are we given as "breaking news" today?

On the typical morning news program we may find out
that the president has a new dog, or see what
celebrities are wearing. We learn what the weather
was like yesterday in Bucharest, or discover what
some film critic thinks of Hollywood's latest flick.

In other words, most of what's called "news" today is
really just a flood of trivia -- mostly
inconsequential data that will be soon forgotten.
Sommerville calls this the "flotsam and foam" of
history. If you don't believe it, check out a
newspaper from 50 years ago. How much of what you
find is truly newsworthy? And how much of it
influenced the course of history? Not much.

But if nothing truly important happens most of the
time, why do reporters behave as though they have
earth-shattering news for us every single day?
America's Biblical Roots
by Charles Colson

It's a bittersweet day in the ancient Near East
thousands of years ago: The thrill of being home
again after years of exile is tempered by the
humiliation of still being vassals of Persia. A
tattered band of Hebrews gathers for several days of
prayer, worship, and teaching.

Nehemiah leads the former exiles in a time of
national confession and repentance. Then they pledge
themselves in a binding agreement to live for God and
obey His commandments. Nehemiah draws up a new
governing charter for Israel, drafted in accordance
with God's laws.

It would be a pattern for generations to come.
Thousands of years later, in 1620, the Pilgrims draft
yet another governing charter-the Mayflower Compact.
They open their Bibles and read the account of
Nehemiah. In imitation of the covenant pattern
described there, they draw up their own set of mutual obligations.

The Mayflower Pilgrims saw themselves as the New
Israelites building a New Jerusalem in the American
wilderness. So the Old Testament pattern of
government by charter seemed only fitting.

The tradition started by Nehemiah continued
throughout the settlement of the New World. Every
Puritan colony drew up its own constitutional charter
following the pattern of the Mayflower Compact.

It began in 1639, when the great Puritan evangelist
Thomas Hooker directed the drafting of Connecticut's
constitution. The Reverend Hooker required that each
article in the constitution be justified by
references to Scripture.

This document became the blueprint for the
constitution of every other colony in the New World.
When it was time to construct a national
constitution, the drafters imitated the pattern
already set in the colonies.

So we can trace a straight line from Nehemiah,
dedicating himself and the people to God in ancient
Israel, to the founding of our own nation and form of government.

It's good to remind ourselves that the constitutional freedoms
we enjoy did not come out of nowhere. They did not come
from the ancient Greeks, who contributed in many
other ways to our Western heritage. Nor did they
derive from secular philosophies, though these, too,
have contributed to our heritage.

No, America's most fundamental ideas about law and
freedom stem from the biblical idea of a covenant, an
agreement freely entered into between God and His
people, outlining their mutual duties and privileges.

The great statesman Daniel Webster, on the 200th
anniversary of the Pilgrims' landing, noted that the
American Founders sought to base all our
institutions, civil and political, on the truths of
the Christian religion.

History textbooks often ignore the biblical roots of
the American system of government. Under the banner
of so-called "separation of church and state," our
school books are silent about the religious
influences that shaped our nation's history-to the
point where many Christians do not even realize the
enormous impact our faith has had on the American heritage.

Let us commit ourselves to educating ourselves and
our children on the impact the Christian faith has had on
America's constitutional form of government. And then let's
recommit ourselves to the practice of confession and
prayer for our nation. For there's truly no greater
hope in times like these.

The Transforming Moment
Jill Carattini

If we were to draw out in symbols and timelines the road maps of our lives,
we could pencil in both single and crucial moments as well as entire years
marked with particular themes of development. In any picture of a life
laid out before us, there are abrupt moments of pivotal formation and
gradual phases of transformation. It is a paradox that insight seems to
grow gradually and yet it also seems to arrive in overpowering moments of

As Peter, James, and John climbed the mountain with Christ, they were
startled when Elijah and Moses appeared before them, talking with Jesus.
It must have seemed a moment of both honor and awe. Peter immediately
responded to it; "Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will
put up three shelters-one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah"
(Matthew 17:4). But before he had finished speaking, a bright cloud
enveloped them and a voice from the heavens thundered, "This is my Son,
whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!" The disciples
were terrified. And then as suddenly as it all began, they looked up and
saw no one but Jesus.

There are transforming moments in our lives that may seem isolated in both
time and vividness. We remember them as mountaintops, points in life
lifted above the majority of the map. But are they not also much more
than this? Whether distinguished by joy or pain, a transforming moment is
always more than a moment; they are no more isolated in the pictures of our
lives than they are isolated in the picture of reality.

Professor and theologian James Loder was on vacation with his family when
they noticed a motorist off to the side of the road waving for help. In
his book The Transforming Moment, he describes kneeling at the
front fender of the broken-down car, his head bent to examine the flat
tire, when he was abruptly alerted to the sound of screeching brakes. A
motorist who had fallen asleep at the wheel was jarred awake seconds
before his vehicle crashed into the disabled car alongside the road and
the man who knelt beside it. Loder was left pinned between the car he was
trying to repair and his own.

Years later, he was compelled to describe the impact of a moment marked by
pain, and yet unarguably something much more. Writes Loder, "At the
hospital, it was not the medical staff, grateful as I was for them, but
the crucifixes-in the lobby and in the patients' rooms-that provided a
total account of my condition. In that cruciform image of Christ, the
combination of physical pain and the assurance of a life greater than
death gave objective expression and meaning to the sense of promise and
transcendence that lived within the midst of my suffering."(1)

His encounter with God, like the Transfiguration of Christ to a small
group of frightened disciples, did not merely transform a moment; it was a
moment that transformed reality and thus, the whole of life. Writes Loder,
"Moments of transforming significance radically reopen the question of

When the disciples came to the end of their mountaintop encounter and
looked up, they saw only Jesus. Moses and Elijah were no longer there;
the cloud that enveloped them disappeared and the heavens ceased to speak.
But the divine Jesus was fully and humanly present to them, the glimpse of
God in that transforming moment on the mountain a radical reality shaping
all of life.

There are times when truth must dazzle gradually, until it is given its
proper place. Other times we seem to find ourselves moved nearly to
blindness as we encounter more than we have eyes yet to see. Sometimes,
like Peter, we interpret these moments of transcendence imperfectly. Yet
God is at work even in the deciphering, and in the final examination, the
content of our transforming moments is Jesus alone, the transfigured one,
the transforming one, the light of the knowledge of the glory of God.

Verse of the Day

* * * Four important things to KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

D I S C L A I M E R If someone should ask if it's legal to download songs
found on various non-commercial sites, such as this one.

Well, I'm neither a lawyer nor a technician,
and I've begun to wonder if it was legal for
us to tape music off the radio back when
tape recorders first came into being.

And were we committing a crime when we recorded
a movie shown on TV with our VCRs? And was it
really legal to buy a dual-deck recorder for the
express purpose of duplicating cassettes?

My answer to all of the above is, "I don't know."

Nonetheless, here is a formal statement in
some kind of legalize that appears to apply
to this kind of file availability:
