He Did What a Man Ought to Do

All he did was do what any man ought to do. However, in today's society, it seems that men are not stepping up to being the defenders of the weak, the moral pillars of society. As a result, Charles Ramsey is celebrated as a hero when he came to the aid of three women who had been imprisoned in a house for ten years. It is interesting to hear what he had to say. He said that his dad would have whooped him if he did not help the girl. When asked if he felt like a hero, he said he is just an American, a human being, just the definition of a man.

FREE Audiobook - Eric Liddell's Disciplines of the Christian Life

At the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, Rowan Atkinson starred in an orchestra piece of "Chariots of Fire". It is the theme song of the movie based on a famous Christian Olympian who refused to participate in the heats of the 200m Olympic Games event because it was held on the Sunday. Eric Liddell instead took on the 400m event and won the event. Later, he decided to become a missionary in China.

His gospel writings have never really surfaced except for one book called Disciplines of the Christian Life. This audio book can be purchased at Amazon.com or you can download it for free for a limited time from Christianaudio.com/Free.

Which Church did Jeremy Lin go to?

I'm sure I am not alone in wondering what church Jeremy Lin attends or used to attend before going to New York. Found out that it was Redeemer Bible Fellowship in Mountain View, California where a friend is currently living. In Harvard, he was a Bible study facilitator at the Harvard-Radcliffe Asian American Christian Fellowship. Here's an article about Lin's testimony.

NEW YORK (BP) -- A lifelong Los Angeles Lakers fan, Daniel Chan faced a dilemma on Feb. 10 with his team playing the hated New York Knicks and their sudden star Jeremy Lin.

"Some people had asked me before the game who I'd be cheering for -- Jeremy or the Lakers," said Chan, pastor of student ministries at Redeemer Bible Fellowship in Mountain View, Calif. "I've never cheered against the Lakers. But Jeremy is a member of our church and a friend, part of our flock --– I had to root for him. It was hard, but...."

Lin has gone from unemployed NBA wannabe to household name and worldwide superstar in only a matter of days. His unexpected emergence as the starting point guard for the Knicks has sparked the struggling team and launched the "Linsanity" that has gripped both the city of New York and the broader sports world.

Lin's is a story of perseverance and persistence, of hard work and humility. But most of all, Lin's is a story of strong faith in Jesus Christ, of devotion to Bible study and prayer and of commitment to spreading the Gospel whenever he gets the opportunity.

"I'm just thankful to God for everything," Lin said in a recent post-game interview, as quoted by Religion News Service. "Like the Bible says, 'God works in all things for the good of those who love Him.'"
