Pocket Notebook Making

Making small notebooks the perfect size to fit a pocket from standard composition books is easy and fun. A smart phone is great for keeping track of phone numbers and other info, but it’s good to have a backup. A small notebook that easily fits in a pocket or purse is the perfect way to keep that backup. It never runs out of battery power, doesn’t break if you drop it, and is even water resistant if you use waterproof ink or pencil.

The picture shows two pocket notebooks, two scratch pads, and a composition book like the one that the notebooks and scratch pads were made from. PVA glue is ideal for this project. A good and readily available example of PVA glue is Elmer’s® Glue-All®.

Why is Christ Hated?

Observing the social scene in America it’s obvious that there is a lot of hate directed at Christianity in General and Christ Jesus in particular. Christianity is being disparaged, mocked, and even violently opposed. Why? It’s because the world has been led astray by evil, falling into the trap of moral relativism where there are no such things as Good and Evil, merely what is expedient at the moment. Jesus and Christianity point out that this is false. There is Good. There is Evil. The right path is pointed out by Christ Jesus, both by his actions and his teachings. Other paths lead to sin, and sin leads to death.

The world desires to carry on however it pleases, without interference from old fashioned, antiquated concepts of behavior. Criticism is bigoted, racist, homophobic, even intolerant, and positively not to be allowed. With these conditions prevalent in the world, Jesus’s words from John 7:7 state plainly why the world hates Him (and through Him all Christianity and Christians.) “Me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” The words of Christ burn within the heart of the world because they are truth and truth must be destroyed.

Faith in Christ, not mere belief

Faith in Christ is more than the mere acknowlegment that Jesus is God, for as it says in James even the devils believe. “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe and tremble.” (James 2:19 KJV) The devils tremble because they don’t have faith and so won’t be saved. Love of Christ is what elevates mere belief to saving faith.
