EMOTIONS ARE MISLEADING

Oliver Cromwell: He was a Christian leader who lead a rebellion over a pretty rotten King named Charles I. When he came to power and accepted the kingdship, throngs of fans and servants were cheering as loud as imaginable. But he looked over at his friend and said, "Do not trust the cheering, for those persons would shout as much if you and I were going to be hanged."

My 2nd year at Holt HS, I had an outreach in which one of my lineman gave his life to Christ (maybe, you know, he said the prayer but then never really showed up, etc). Later on, I asked him how his faith was doing, and he explained to me that he was going to some type of New Age healer and getting his negativity wiped off of him. I said, "What?" And his answers still sticks to me, he said "But it makes me feel good."
