how to make a heartfelted Brambleโคtini loop ornament ||| Knitting With HeartWell it’s beginning to look a lot like last year’s Christmas, now that my fibrously festive decor pics are finally packaged into a presentable post… HA! Why does time always fly so fast?!?

Anyhoo… holding an iPad completely still for stills can be a bit of a challenge. So in today’s photo gallery, I’ve included one especially blurred shot to emphasizes the crAZy of my logic to share Christmas photos a year late …LoL… But OhhhHo boy… really gotta get cracking on THIS year’s decorating! Family’s coming to visit from Manitoba and it’s gonna be extra fun… ‘though may need a Christmas miracle to get it all done!ย 

‘Twas last Christmas when my nimble knitting fingers stitched the first fleecy prototype for my upcoming “It’s ALL about Jesus” mosaic knitting pattern design. I’d hoped to have it published by now, but these things take time. For now, I’m extremely thankful to have my ol’ iMac back and slowly-yet-surely moving forward with pattern layout preparations! Currently stitching my 4th sampleโ€”see lovely group shot of em’ all laid flat on a striped bath towel “blocking mat” ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

Do you believe Christmas (and life in general) is all about Jesus? It truly warms my heart and soothes my soul to knit such comforting words โค

Feel free to click the following photos and climb my stairway decor from Christmas past… 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016… Hope you’ll also enjoy the fireside Christmas music video and/or meaningful message from one of my favourite preachers,ย  Pastor Charles Lawson ๐Ÿ™‚

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Faith in Jesus Christ is our response to God's elective purpose in our life. These two truths--God's initiative and man's response--co-exist throughout the Bible. The gospel is "the message of truth" because truth is its predominant characteristic. Salvation was conceived by the God of truth (Ps. 31:5); purchased by the Son, who is the truth (John 14:6); and is applied by the Spirit of truth (John 16:13). To know it is to know the truth that sets men free (John 8:32). Believers are people of the truth (John 18:37), who worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24), and who obey the Word of truth (John 17:17). People have rejected, neglected, redefined, and opposed Godโ€™s truth for centuries. Some cynically deny that truth even exists or that it can be known by men (John 18:38). Others foolishly think that denying truth will somehow make it go away. Truth determines the validity of one's belief. Believing a lie doesn't make it true. Conversely, failing to believe the truth doesn't make it a lie. The gospel is true because Jesus is true, not simply because Christians believe in Him. His resurrection proved the truth of His claims and constitutes the objective basis of our faith (Rom. 1:4; 1 Pet. 1:3). Truth is our protection and strength (Eph. 6:14). Throughout history, people have tried everything imaginable to gain favor with God. Most turn to religion, but religion apart from Christ is merely a satanic counterfeit of the truth. At the heart of every false religion is the notion that man can come to God by any means he chooses--by meditating, doing good deeds, and so on. But Scripture says, "There is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). That name is Jesus Christ, and we come to Him by confessing and repenting of our sin, trusting in His atoning death on the cross, and affirming His bodily resurrection from the grave (cf. Rom. 10:9-10). There is no other way to God. False religious leaders and teachers talk much about Godโ€™s love, but not His wrath and holiness; much about how deprived of good things people are, but not about their depravity; much about Godโ€™s universal fatherhood toward everyone, but not much about his unique fatherhood toward all who believe in His Son; much about what God wants to give to us, but nothing about the necessity of obedience to Him; much about health and happiness, but nothing about holiness and sacrifice. Their message is full of gaps, the greatest of which leaves out a biblical worldview of the saving gospel and replaces it with the worldview of postmodernism with its dominant ethical system of relativism. The Bible describes mankind in the end times: โ€œalways learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truthโ€ (2 Tim. 3:7). Spiritual answers cannot be deduced by human reason alone (1 Cor. 2:14). Itโ€™s not that spiritual truth is irrational or illogical, but that human wisdom is defective, because itโ€™s tainted by manโ€™s sinfulness, and unable to perceive the things of God. That is why the Bible is so important. It gives us the answers we canโ€™t find on our own. It is Godโ€™s Word to mankind. Scripture is divinely revealed truth that fills the vacuum of spiritual ignorance in all of us. Post-truth is the word of the year for 2016 and also the philosophy of the day, According to the dictionary, โ€œpost-truthโ€ means, โ€œrelating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.โ€ Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. In a โ€œpost-truthโ€ world, people make choices based on emotion and experience rather than objective fact. So in a post-truth world, truth is irrelevant. What exactly is a post-truth culture? Itโ€™s a culture where truth is no longer an objective reality. It has become subjective. Itโ€™s whatโ€™s true for meโ€”my beliefs, my opinions, determine my truth. So in our post-truth culture, man determines truth. Man makes himself the ultimate authority. This starting point, which rejects Godโ€™s Word and the idea of moral absolutes, makes truth subjective. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Christianity is grounded in objective truth. โ€œAnd you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you freeโ€ (John 8:32). Objective truth exists because we have Godโ€™s Word. In the Gospel of John, Jesus says, โ€œSanctify them by Your truth. Thy word is truthโ€ (John 17:17), and Paul and James describe the Bible as โ€œthe word of truthโ€ (2 Timothy 2:15; James 1:18). The Psalmist says, โ€œThe entirety of your word is truthโ€ (Psalm 119:160). Jesus Himself said, โ€œFor this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voiceโ€ (John 18:37). When Jesus said, โ€œI am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except by meโ€ (John 14:6), He wasnโ€™t expressing His personal belief or opinion. He was speaking the truth, a fundamental reality that doesnโ€™t change from person to person. It doesnโ€™t matter if our culture thinks all roads lead to God. The truth of the matter is โ€œno one comes to the Father but by [Jesus].โ€ This blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequencesโ€”temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
