Casablanca - November 26, 1942





Considered by many one of the best films ever made,
"Casablanca"
premiered in New York City, but its
general release only occurred two
months later.
Based on an unpublished play by Murray Burnett,

Casablanca is a romantic melodrama set in the
Moroccan city of the
same name during World
War II. The movie starred Humphrey Bogart,

Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid.

The film gave us many classic scenes and quotes:

Giraffes With No Necks
Betsy Childs

"If you draw a giraffe, you must draw him with a long neck. If, in your
bold creative way, you hold yourself free to draw a giraffe with a short
neck, you will really find that you are not free to draw a giraffe. The
moment you step into the world of facts, you step into a world of limits.
You can free things from alien or accidental laws, but not from the laws
of their own nature." So writes G. K. Chesterton in his book
Orthodoxy.

In our world of whimsical art and computer-altered images I have seen
plenty of incredible depictions of giraffes, from a blue giraffe to a fat
giraffe to a giraffe jumping over the moon. Though none of these
depictions are realistic, they are still recognizable because they retain
the giraffe's defining characteristic: a long neck.

There is creativity, and then, there is creativity. One kind of
creativity brings out the true essence of a thing, helping the onlooker
see the object under consideration in a new light. The other kind of
creativity distorts the subject beyond recognition; the subject becomes
incidental rather than essential.

While I view creativity as a good thing, there is a danger in practicing
the latter kind of creativity in the realms of Christian spirituality and
scholarship. There is far more pressure in the academic world to say
something that is perceived as original or innovative than there is to say
something true. A scholar can swiftly rise to prominence by suggesting
that every previous historian or theologian has been mistaken. Promoting
truth that has been tested and tried is far less popular and attracts less
attention.

The same pressures can be true of spirituality, whether in worship,
preaching, or the exercise of any spiritual discipline. As humans, we are
enchanted by novelty, and novelty is good, as long as it points us in the
right direction rather than becoming the focus of our interest. But when
the methods of devotion become our focus rather than the glory of God, we
have ceased to worship. God-centeredness is the defining characteristic
of true worship.

It bewilders me when individuals or churches choose to unswervingly
identify themselves as Christian, all the while abandoning every defining
characteristic of the Christian faith. It makes as little sense to call
someone a Christian who does not believe that Jesus rose from the dead as
it does to call a creature a giraffe, though it has no neck. Followers of
Jesus come in many theological shapes and sizes, yet to be identified as a
Christian, it is only logical that one should bear certain defining
characteristics.

One of the earliest known confessions used by the first-century church was
the declaration, "Jesus is Lord." Some find creeds and confessions
constricting. But confessions such as this one remind us that there is an
essence to Christianity, and that is the recognition of the lordship of
Jesus. In the words of Abraham Kuyper, "There is not a square inch in the
whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is sovereign
over all, does not cry: 'Mine!'"

Chesterton advises the reader, "Do not free a camel of the burden of his
hump: you may be freeing him from being a camel. Do not go about as a
demagogue, encouraging triangles to break out of the prison of their three
sides. If a triangle breaks out of its three sides, its life comes to a
lamentable end." Those who seek to free the world from the lordship of
Christ only succeed in freeing themselves of their Christianity. For the
Christian, the lordship of Christ is not constraining; it is life itself.

Verse of the Day



* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

P U R P O S E
But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16


When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
