Scripture of the Day - July 20, 2012

Romans 1:21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

I just read about a lavish wedding ceremony in India that is apparently a ritual to bring rain to the drought ridden land. Thousands were in attendance and the ceremony was conducted by five Hindu priests. What makes this wedding stand out is the fact that the bride and groom were two frogs...the groom named Punarvasu and his bride named Pushala have been joined in matrimony in the hopes that this will bring rain. They believe that a lavish wedding ceremony between two frogs will bring rain. Oh how their foolish hearts are darkened and how vain they are in their imaginations.
Folks, NEVER be ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have to cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God!
