How to get to Heaven ?
Simply admit to Jesus that you are a
sinner, and accept His forgiveness.
Jesus has completed the bridge
and paid the toll with His blood.
Doesn't matter WHO you are.
Doesn't matter WHAT you have done.
Now you are saved, so START OVER ANEW.
God now sees you as WHITE AS SNOW.
I will see you in Heaven !
It was a gorgeous afternoon. Blue, blue, blue sky and 50 degrees. I decided to drive Ava into the hills to an off-the-beaten-path place where all the trees have been clearcut in the last five years and we’d have that glorious sunshine beaming on us for the entire walk.
About two miles up the main road I spotted an ATV off to the side and a young man standing behind the trailer that was hitched to it. That was a little unusual, so I stopped and rolled down my window to ask, “You okay? You broken down or anything?” He gave me a wave, a smile, and said he was fine, thanks. But before I could get moving again, he crossed to Old Blue for a chat.
**************************************** A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE REDNECK
The redneck idea of a rebellion is to lie in wait with a shotgun for the guy who’s trying to tax your whiskey.
Rednecks are scary. Rednecks are Presbyterian.
Now. Most of you have no idea what I’m talking about when I say Presbyterian. You’re thinking it’s the plain-vanilla church on the town square run by a pasty-faced pastor named Morrison who speaks twice a week on the virtues of thrift and charity. But I’m not talking about 21st-century namby-pamby Presbyterians.
I’m talking about Cumberland Presbyterians. Hard-shells.
The ones in Tennessee and Texas and that southern part of Ohio that’s in Appalachia.
These are the original rednecks. These are not people who left their cross-timbered homes in South Yorkshire after deciding the Anglican Church was becoming “a bit too Catholic, yes, a bloody shame.” These were people who felt like most churches were a con game. These people hated all the churches. These were people who wanted to be left the hell alone. These are our Angry White Man forebears.
