Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World By David Jeremiah

27 Apr
This is the first work i had read by Dr. David Jeremiah, probably will be the last. In this book, page 52 Dr. Jeremiah is recalling the story of Peter being asked by Jesus if he loves Him, this is after the resurrection. I felt that Dr. Jeremiah missed one of the beautiful parts of this meeting. Jesus used the same type of coal for the fire that was used when Peter denied Him. The odour that would have come from that fire would have reminded Peter of the time when he denied Christ. Dr. Jeremiah in my mind destroyed the entire story to focus on the words that were used. I cannot tell Jesus that i "Agape" Him. I am not capable of "Agape" love. And to my knowledge the only person that has lived who is capable of that love is Jesus Christ Himself.

Stop praying for revival and start praying people repent

26 Apr
When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public
officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to
choose for rulers, “just men who will rule in the fear of God.” The
preservation of government depends on the faithful discharge of this
duty;if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in
office, the government will soon be corrupted;laws will be made, not for
the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes;corrupt or
incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws;the public
revenues will be squandered on unworthy men;and the rights of the
citizens will be violated or disregarded. If a republican government
fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the
citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and
administer the laws.

Installing Enlightenment on Fedora YUM Repo

02 Apr

For those who don't know E17 is in fedora, but it's not a very current release. So i found a repo that has some more up-to-date files. It's easy to install just follow the directions on the site. I will add more notes later, because i just wanted to capture the link.

Install Enlightenment and have fun.

First Enlightenment App

01 Apr

Well Enlightenment has come a long ways. I remember getting e16 over 10 years ago and i thought it was awesome back then. It has only gotten better. I have been following the progress over the years and have tried e17 several times. Well now it looks like e17 is getting stable and a new stable release will be out. Now it may be another year i don't know, but things are looking very good.

I have two apps that i want to do the first is a gui front-end for notmuchmail. And the other is just a personal project to see if something is very feasible. I will give more input once i have it in a viewable state, right now it would be labelled as vaporware.
