The other events in Jotham's reign, including all his wars and the other things he did, are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah. - 2 Chronicles 27:7
T minus three days left of Chronicles. Kings talked about today (of course already talked about in Kings): Amaziah, Uzziah, and Jotham. Again, unexciting to start with, extra unexciting when it's repeated. Sorry I don't have anything biblically interesting today. Blame the bible.
We've all heard about the earthquake in Haiti (I hope). Christians always seem to find the worst solution to a problem.
Lets lay out the problem. We have a country that has just suffered a huge disaster. People are starving, thirsty, they don't have shelter, there are thousands of injured, people can't find their loved ones, and people are dying because they can't get medical attention.
What could these people need? Food, water, shelter, medical supplies, people to help search for survivors, or doctors? No! Audio bibles! I obviously haven't quite pinned down what the Haitians really need, I'll let Jon Wilke explain:
Now they've lost everything. They are asking the big questions in life -- 'Why am I here?' Some are saying 'I'm so blessed to be alive' and they have a lot of questions, so the Bible helps answer those questions.Right, I'm sure they're all sitting around pondering life's mysteries and not worried about starving to death.
I wonder what they're going to be thinking when the truck that is supposed to be carrying food and medical supplies is instead transporting audio bibles. I certainly hope the US government isn't letting them send these bibles yet, when the Haitians can't even get the medical supplies they need. At least the audio bibles look moderately flammable, maybe they can be burned for warmth (not that warmth is needed in Haiti).
