PRAYING FOR MY BELOVED CRC MEMBERS & CALVIN COLLEGE et al to NOT ACQUIESCE TO FAR-LEFT LIBERALISM TO TRY TO BE ‘COOL’:

JESUS SAID: “I pray not that thou should take them out of the world, but that thou should keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

And for their sakes ..."

BY FAITH

So people get what God promised by having faith. This happens so that the promise can be a free gift. And if the promise is a free gift, then all of Abraham's people will get that promise. The promise is not just for those who live under the Law of Moses. It is for all who live with faith as Abraham did. He is the father of us all. 17

I DIDN'T SEE IT, WHAT ABOUT U    "'First Reformed' leads Gotham Awards nominees -" I'M TOO LEERY OF PAUL SCHRADER ANTI-CHURCH AGENDA. Maybe it should be called "UNREFORMED''...

I SOMETIMES WONDER IF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS WARNING ME, LIKE PAUL,2

    [I implore God for clarity on His will for my life..I want to do His Will  not my will...I ask for a clear sign ..whether to continue , as is, or to make life changes, whether to stay or go..]  I SOMETIMES WONDER IF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS WARNING ME, LIKE PAUL: "I earnestly bore witness for both Jews and Greeks to repentance before God and to faith in our Lord Jesus. 22 But now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem. What will happen to me there I do not know,

still in northern cal ! +6/3/18 GREETINGS TRINIDAD & WEST HAVEN CA: REPENT & BE BAPTIZED, ACCEPT CHRIST & B SAVED 2DAY !

"CRCNA Receives Nearly $1 Million ..."SO IF YOU RECEIVE $1 MILLION FROM A COMPANY DOES THAT MAKE U MORE FAVORABLE TOWARDS THEM?

CRCNA Receives Nearly $1 Million Grant to Launch Thriving Together Program

"The Christian Reformed Church in North America has received a $998,990 grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. to help establish its Thriving Together program. .." 

MY CONCERN WITH MY BELOVED CRC accepting this $1 million dollar grant from Lilly Endowment is that it is from a major billion-dollar pharmaceutical company...and maybe  it comes with "no strings attached" ( or maybe not, have we the people of the CRC been made privy to the "fine print"?) , but does it consciously or unconsciously influence the administrator, or church pastor, or church member to think more favorably about the use of various medications, including psycho-tropics, as an answer to some problems, rather than prayer, fellowship, evangelism, etc. I am NOT saying all medication is bad or evil, but it can be over-used sometimes, and there are certain medications that have more negative "side effects" than others, including some used for "mental health issues"...; I am concerned about an agenda by Lilly to sort of bring the church "under its wing" so to speak. They are giving multi-millions to churches and denominations all over the USA. What will be the long-term result ?

re THE TEMPTATION TO BE "COOL" & "GO WITH THE FLOW" OF SECULARISM EVEN AT CALVIN COLLEGE re the LGBT COMMUNITY

HELLO CALVIN STUDENTS, 

i am a former Calvin Student, and recently noticed a little article in the Chimes about the LGBT community...I didn't read the article , and barely caught the title, but I am GUESSING that it is about trying to be kind and tolerant and seemingly "nice" things like that... ; 

I am NOT saying that you should gay-bash, God Forbid..., but NEITHER should you accomodate what is wrong in God's eyes. 

Unfortunately, growing up in Grand Rapids MI ( I am an "Eagle-Knight" , ie GR Christian High & Calvin, but long gone from west Michigan apart from visiting periodically) I know there were GAY BASHERS in the CRC-Eagle-Knight communities, ironically, some of the bashers had their own "skeletons in the closet" so to speak.

 Some not only bashed people as "maybe gay" but also used the term "ffo-krej" (spelled backward because it is such a bad work , like the "n word) to malign and marginalize people.

 This was very hurtful to some people , and clearly wrong in the Christian community. I know some of these bashers are still around the Eagle-Knight-CRC west Michigan community, and maybe they have disguised their former ugly selves from the "bad ol' days". 

To be critical of such ugly hateful bashing persons is GOOD, but at the same time let's not throw the "baby out with the bathwater" so to speak. 

Let us NOT legitimize LGBT relationships, but let us NOT be mean hateful bashers either, especially when it is a form of "projection" of one's own problems.

 Let's go after these "projecting bashers" who do what they do to take the light off themselves,  while at the same time NOT say that sin is ok. Let's try to do "BOTH-AND" .. 

GOD BLESS YOU..keep the faith, keep shining the light ! Keep being a GOOD KNIGHT ! 

SINCERELY

JOHN VAN DER TRUTH

MY MESSAGE TO SOME OF THE CALVIN PROFESSORS WHO JUST RETIRED IN 2018

FAREWELL BOSCH ! you were a GREAT English professor when I was there from 1985-89 & 1992-94 !. you should start a blog or twitter site called "anonymous bosch" (or is there already one i don't know about). 

Also, others professors named above whom  I fondly remember from the "good ol' days" include :

1)  Ronald Sjoerdsma ...took one or two of his education classes..good guy, down-to-earth, the real deal, .. hope all is well ; 

2) I had Evert Van Der Heide  for an economics class..nice guy;  Enjoy your retirement ! 

3) i remember Shirley Roels from a required business class, friendly & positive. God be with you and bless  you. and to ALL the other retiring professors... thanks for your service, and keep the faith ! 

After leaving Calvin I taught school for a few years and then went into full-time Christian ministry... as an independent Christian evangelist, doing my small part to fulfill the Great Commission. Lots more to talk about but not enough time or space here. FAREWELL for now, in the name of the Father-Son-&-Spirit

BETSY IS DOING WHAT'S RIGHT "Betsy DeVos is getting savaged for closing campus kangaroo courts"

"
The result [of Obama's stupidity] has, inevitably, been jaw-dropping miscarriages of justice. Everyone should want perpetrators of sexual assault to be punished — and in the criminal-justice system, not just by colleges — but elementary protections for the accused can't be discarded in the process.

video: INTERESTING NEWS STORY BY CHANNEL 8 re the "BUTTERBALL MANSION" ESTATE SALE (12/5/17)

ALL of the PETERS KIDS (from the 1st & 2nd marriages, that's 5 + 3) ATTENDED GRAND RAPIDS CHRISTIAN HIGH and CALVIN COLLEGE(except one of the late daughters, Brenda, who was developmantally disabled) , and attended CHRISTIAN REFORMED CHURCHES in Grand Rapids growing up (and at least 4 of the grandchildren are also Eagle-Knights ) 

Mark was the only son of the late Leo Peters , and inherited the Butterball Farms business (also based in Grand Rapids). They continue to manufacture "fancy butter" , a tiny version of which is provided with the hotcakes at McDonalds around the USA. 

Butterball actually began in Evanston Ilinois, and then moved to West Michigan. The older daughters from Leo Peters 1st marriage (to Helen, who died at a young age) helped their father as he began experimenting with making butter beautiful in their apartment home near Lake Michigan in the Chicago area. Once it began to sell well, Leo moved to Grand Rapids, bought the mansion, established a factory on Buchanan Avenue, and the rest, as they say, is history.*

Mark recently sold the "Butterball Mansion" and apparently left much of the estate to the new owner, who apparently is selling it off , and re-selling the mansion ? 

see video at 
JESUS SAVES !!

*albeit, while Leo Peters was a smart businessman, there are those family members who contend he was NOT a good person in terms of relationships & family, which, when all is said and done, is most important , right ? At least if it is properly aligned with a relationship with Jesus Christ: Father -Son- &- Holy Spirit. Being a successful business person and making lots of money means very little in the end if the bigger picture of one's life  does not do something positive in the eyes of our Lord God. Leo attended LaGrave Avenue CRC. He also sent all his kids to the Christian schools, and he, himself, also attended Calvin College. For some, however, the Christian schools, are just a good "private" option. 

How about any of you at Calvin or Christian High? Are you there because of CHRIST or because it's a good , private, option  to public education ? I HOPE AND PRAY you're there for the RIGHT REASONS! Yes, I went there too (Calvin & GRCH) and now I am in southern California. I KNOW how easy it is to go thru the motions of church and Christian education. But at some point you have to make a SERIOUS CRITICAL INTROSPECTIVE DECISION to truly follow Christ and put your MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS... ; don't just go thru the motions ! GOD BLESS YOU. GOD BLESS US. AND LET US BLESS GOD

WHAT LED the LATE REV. GARETH KOK (SON OF A FARMER) TO BECOME AN ORDAINED CRC PASTOR


all of the below was written by
Rev. Gareth Kok
(CRC Pastor)
-----------------------------
CALLED TO BE A MINISTER "MADE TO BE A MINISTER"
Sometimes I am asked what made me decide to be a minister. I am not sure how I have answered this question. I'm sure I did not always give the same answer. My answer depended upon various things, but there really is only one answer. That is the answer given by the Apostle Paul when he wrote "I was made a minister according to the gift of God's grace . . ." Ephesians 3:7. I would say that God by grace called me to be a minister and made me a minister.
I grew up in a Christian home where the Bible and Bible stories were read daily with reverence. My parents did not talk so very much about religion, but they created a warm, spiritual atmosphere. God was in their thinking and in all their planning.

They were faithful, active members of the church. We always attended both Sunday services even though they were conducted in the Dutch language. My parents had a great respect for the ministers of the Gospel and thought very highly of them. However, I do not remember them ever indicating that they wished that I might become a minister.


That was simply expecting too much for an ordinary farm family. I am sure that I had no thoughts of becoming a minister; it was not in my mind.


However, my grandmother who lived with us for many years said that I had mentioned to her that I would like to become a missionary, but I am not aware of that.
My parents were deeply interested in Christian schools; in fact, one of the reasons that the Christian Reformed Church was established in Randolph, Wisconsin, was that my father and a few other men were dissatisfied with the local Reformed Church because the church was opposed to starting a Christian school.

The CRC was established with the intention of providing Christian education for the children. I was one of the first children to enroll in the Christian school. I loved school and did well, but I still had no intention of preparing for the ministry; in fact, when I finished the sixth grade, I began to work on the farm.


But for some reason I kept up my schooling on a part-time basis until I became the first one to graduate from the Randolph Christian School. On July 4, 1918, I received my diploma. I had no intention of ever going beyond that. The Lord had different plans, but I did not know that.
After graduating, I began to work for an uncle on the farm. His farm was located at least two miles from our home and I had to walk to work every morning. This took me past our church.

One morning when I walked past the parsonage, the minister,/Rev. William Bajema, sat on the porch. He told me to stop by that night on the way back from work because he wished to talk with me. All day I wondered about what I had done to require a special talk by the minister. Surely something must be wrong.


That evening the pastor asked, "You like to study, do you not?" He knew that I was reading every book I could lay my hands on both in the English and the Dutch language. So I agreed that I did.


Then he asked if I would not like to go to Calvin, which at that time included high school. I said "Surely, but nobody ever goes there from here." He did not ask me if I would like to be a minister. If he had, I would have said "Oh, no!" That was not in my thinking at all. However, we decided that if t was okay with my parents, I would go to Calvin that


fall and was to travel with relatives of the pastor. My parents agreed and that very night plans were made for me to leave home at 15 to continue my formal education, but nothing was said about the ministry.
Shortly after I had enrolled at Calvin, one of my classmates asked me if I was planning to be a minister and I assured him I was not; I was merely interested in getting a little more education.

After spending two years at Calvin, I went to Grundy College in Grundy Center, Iowa. There I finished my third year of college, still uncertain of my future. I had, however, taken all courses required for the ministry.


Then I returned to Calvin for my last year of college and graduated as a pre—seminary student. My plan was to enroll at the University of Michigan to take up literature and philosophy; however, one of my Calvin professors urged me to first attend Calvin Seminary and then go to the university.


For some reason, this sounded good to me, even though I had no intention of becoming a minister; however, I soon saw myself approaching the ministry and sought ways to avoid it.
During the second year of Seminary we were permitted to preach and I decided to do my part, but felt very inadequate and fearful. I did not dare to face the congregation or take my eyes off of my manuscript. I was scared. I became convinced that I could not preach.
I prayed that God would show me a way out.

Then one Sunday night I was to preach for the First CRC of Cutlerville. I determined that unless God delivered me from my fears this would be my last attempt. When I stepped up to the pulpit I threw my sermon on the floor and prayed that if God wanted me to be a minister He should help me preach.

The Lord heard my prayer and that night I was able to preach without difficulty. I looked people in the eyes and delivered the message without using my notes. I believe that was the night the Lord showed me that He wanted me to be a preacher and gave me the gift.

From that day on, I was able to preach without fear and without using my notes. I still, however, wished to avoid the ministry., I considered missions and made applications first with our own denomination where I found no openings and then with the China Inland Mission which accepted me to work in Mongolia or China; however, I felt my own denomination had first claim on me and so I decided to wait until I was eligible for a call.

We had been taught that when a congregation came with a legitimate call, we had to consider it as a call from the Lord. The call came from the CRC of Hills, Minnesota, in Southwest Minnesota. I became convinced that it was the Lord's call and I accepted it with the confidence that the Lord had called me to be a minister and I have never lost that conviction., God made me a minister and I never regretted it, even though there were times when I wished He had called me to something else.

Fwd: The LATE REV. GARETH KOK WROTE ABOUT WHAT COMPELLED HIM & OTHERS TO START BELLFLOWER CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS (CA) (NOW "VALLEY CHRISTIAN" ) IN THE 1930's




all of the below was written by
Rev. Gareth Kok
(CRC Pastor)
-----------------------------
BELLFLOWER CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
CALLED BY GOD TO BELLFLOWER
I think it was in January 1935 that I received a telegram in Hills, Minnesota, stating "You are called" from First Christian Reformed Church of Bellflower. I immediately replied by letter "Due to family circumstances we would not be able to move at this time and therefore I suggest that you make a new nomination and excuse me." Then came a letter stating "We are not in a hurry and request that you consider our call. Take your time; we can wait."
This letter was followed by several others from members of the church. Those letters had one thing in common: they all urged us to come for the purpose of beginning a Christian school which they considered to be the main need for the community. My wife and I were both deeply interested in Christian education and became convinced that God was calling us to Bellflower to help promote the establishment of a Christian school.
In my letter of acceptance, I stated that our first goal would be to help start a Christian school and to show my sincerity I pledged a generous share of my annual salary for the building of a school.
Upon settling in Bellflower, at once a series of meetings was held for the promotion of a Christian school. They were held in the Reformed churches of Hynes and Artesia and in the Christian Reformed church of Bellflower and one special mass meeting was held at the Bellflower Presbyterian Church. I presented two reasons for wanting a Christian school: The first was the mandate given us by our Lord Jesus Christ who said "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness" and the words of Paul "Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." Our children need an education that will encourage them to strive for that goal. Their primary aim in life must be to honor and glorify God.
The second reason was the public schools were dominated by the philosophy of John Dewey, the father of progressive education. He said "There is no God, there is no soul, there is no fixed moral law and nobody has the right to say to a child 'You shall' or 'You shall not'." It was really godless education and such education will not help our children seek the glory of God. The Christian school is our only hope.
God blessed our efforts and in the fall of 1935 the first unit of four classrooms was dedicated. At the dedication service I observed, when God by His mighty power led Israel out of Egypt, they soon encountered difficulties: the Red Sea blocked their way and the Egyptian armies were rushing up from behind. Moses cried to God, who said "Tell the people of Israel to go forward!" God is telling us today "Go forward." It won't be easy; it will take much effort and it will cost us loads of money every year, but you must keep going.
Ten years later we celebrated our 10th anniversary. By that time we had completed the high school. At that celebration Mr. George Te Velde observed, "at the dedication of our
first unit 10 years ago, Rev. Kok told us we had started something that would cost us lots of money to keep it going, we would have to pour in money." Well we have been pouring money every year, but every one of us here today is better off financially today than we were 10 years ago; in other words, God poured out His blessings faster than we did." And God has continued to pour it out to us. Today our school is one of the best private high schools in our country, and today we celebrate 50 years of progress to the praise of our God who led us all the way and to whom all thanks and praise is due.
Matthew 6:28-34 - "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor nor spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not sorry saying 'What shall we eat?' Or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For pagans run after all these things and your Heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
I Corinthians 10:31 - "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."
"There is no God and there is no soul. There is no room for fixed natural law or moral absolutes." - John Dewey

Key survey results, which showed that Democrats were roughly
twice as likely to have been diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans, included: Post-traumatic stress disorder (Democrats 7.95 percent, Republicans 3.97 percent), ADD/ADHD (Democrats 9.13 percent, Republicans 3.97 percent), anxiety (Democrats 20.84 percent, Republicans 10.26 percent) and depression (Democrats 34.43 percent, Republicans 23.51 percent).
In fact, in every category polled – dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Asperger's/autism, depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, PTSD, narcissistic personality disorder, anorexia and bulimia – Democrats reported higher incidences then Republicans, except for dyslexia...."
